Blood Quickening is one of the weekly Icecrown Citadel raid quests.
Rescue Infiltrator Minchar before he is executed.
- Minchar Rescued
These Scourge bloodsuckers -- San'layn they call themselves—give me the creeps. We've had one of our best men keeping an eye on them. But this morning he got sloppy and got himself taken prisoner. He's being interrogated by the Queen herself right now, and his cries echo through the Crimson Halls. Please, save him before it's too late!
Whew, I thought I was a goner! I heard talk of a resurrection ritual going on in these Halls and went in for a closer look, but one of those blasted vampires sniffed me out. They strung me up here, draining my life energy and hoping I'd break and divulge our plans of attack. As if I even know what Tirion has planned!
Please, take these spoils of war as a small token of gratitude for saving my life.
This is considered to be the hardest of the Icecrown weekly quests, as it requires the raid to kill Blood-Queen Lana'thel within thirty minutes of the first Crimson Halls trash pull. As long as Blood-Queen Lana'thel is pulled before the execution, the quest can still be completed.
