Hm, what is that book you have there?

On approach:

Melani says: I did it, Papa! I made a wish!


My notes! In the chaos, I completely forgot about them!

This is my life's work, <name>. I cannot thank you enough.

In Aruuna for N [95] Burning Sky and N [95] Pieces of Us, find  [Barum's Notes] on the ground, which starts this quest.

Southwest of Barum's notes, between the two buildings, find the  [Crystal-Shaper's Tools].

Head southeast towards the stairs leading to the upper level, but note a red Honed Crystal on the ground next to the central crystal structure. Halfway up the stairs is a blue Polished Crystal. Just outside the building in the upper courtyard, find Raksi, who offers N [95] Pyrophobia. Just next to her is a green Harmoic Crystal. Before heading in to the inn, find the triangular Annals of Aruuna at the southeast end of the courtyard, and Melani's Doll in a char at the northeast end.

Head in to the inn to find Sun-Sage Kairyx:

Sun-Sage Kairyx yells: Artifacts from the greatest age belong to us! You have no claim to them!

Finish him off:

Sun-Sage Kairyx says: No... the prism...

Turn in to Raksi and pick up N [95] What the Draenei Found. Head northeast to the Aruuna Crystal Mine, killing winged arakkoa along the way. After entering the main mine chamber:

Adherent Squallbringer yells: Scour the room! Check every corner and shadow, and dno not move the artifact until we can be certain it is safe.

Don't take the rail bridge across, but look to the south to find a fallen rock that bridges across the ravine and points right at the Ancient Prism. Interact with it:

Raksi says: So, this is what they were after... Thank you for clearing the way.

Don't worry about not being done with Burning Sky when turning in What the Draenei Found, as more arakkoa killing is coming in the next quests at Veil Shadar. Once finally at the quota, turn in west of Anchorite's Sojourn on the Pilgrim's Road.
