Objectives

A'dal in Shattrath City wants you to recover the Unused Axe of the Executioner from the Shattered Halls of Hellfire Citadel.

This quest must be completed in Heroic dungeon difficulty.

Description

Four trials you must pass before you are deemed worthy by the naaru.

Within the Shattered Halls of Hellfire Citadel are three of your people. They are held there by the merciless one, Kargath Bladefist. He seeks to execute them as a sign of his virility and power. You must save these prisoners before such an atrocity can come to pass. As proof of deed, bring me the unused axe of the executioner. It must not have a drop of blood on its blade!

Progress

<A'dal greets you.>

Completion

Well done, <name>. You have passed the trial of mercy.

Gains

Upon completion of this quest you will gain:

Notes

The  [Flamewrought Key] is required to open Heroic Mode in Hellfire Citadel. The key can be obtained at honored reputation with Honor Hold or Thrallmar.

After defeating Combat Grand Warlock Nethekurse and upon entering the gauntlet afterwards, your group has 80 minutes to reach Combat Warchief Kargath Bladefist. Similar to the quest N [60D] Dead Man's Plea - the 45-minute baron run - a timer-debuff appears and Kargath Bladefist will occasionally yell something about executing the prisioners. Although you lose the debuff upon death you still can complete the quest.

The quest description is misleading, as a prisoner or two may be killed and you can still get the quest item - so don't be quick to give up if you miss the deadline, or even a few kills.

Quest progression
