The enemy has the best toys? Take them away from him, then, and turn them to our own use!
This quest is part of the Burning Legion of Blade's Edge quest chain.
Use the Naturalized Ammunition to take control of the Death's Door Fel Cannons. Use them to destroy both the South Warp-Gate and the North Warp-Gate. Then, use the to call out to an Evergrove Druid to report your success.
Now that the ammunition can affect the Burning Legion, it's time for you to use it.
There are two warp-gates, which are used for teleportation and enhancement of the void terrors. One is in the south and the other in the north, and each is within range of a fel cannon.
Use the naturalized ammunition to take control of each fel cannon and destroy the warp-gates.
Attack the gate with artillery to begin, and be prepared to kill its defenders to keep the cannon alive if necessary.
Have you destroyed both of the warp-gates yet?
Your prowess is staggering!
Very well, with the warp-gates out of the picture, there's only one thing left to do.
- For Frost Mages, its best to use your on each Unstable Imp. It takes two shots (one if it crits) to kill each one, which allows you to continue using the artillery shot, as opposed to the anti-Imp round. Make sure you have Mana Gems conjured!
This is really a "friend or two recommended" quest...
When you use the Naturalized Ammunition, you gain the cannon as a stationary pet, complete with pet bar. On that bar are two special abilities: Fire on the Warp Gate, and Flame Thrower. Both are on the same timer, so any use of one prevents you from doing the other until the cooling time (about 15 seconds) is over. A pet-using class such as hunters and warlocks (and to a lesser extent, mages and druids) should note that using the cannon, it becoming a pet, will dismiss your permanent pet until you summon them back afterwards.
It takes 7 shots to destroy a warp gate. The moment you start firing, a series of suicide imps start emerging from the gate. They explode for perhaps 600 points each, and appear in a fairly steady stream (perhaps 2 seconds apart). Five or six of these blowing up next to your cannon will destroy it, so you must intercept them short of the cannon. They have about 500-600 HP, and will explode next to you if you aggro them. Their explosion replaces their melee attack, but does not happen when they die. This can be completed solo, and is easier for some classes than others. Rogues, for instance have the hardest time with this quest.
The key to victory is to stand n the way of the imps and use a low-mana instant cast spell to kill them. Another idea is to aoe them down, and depending on the range of your aoe, this may or may not be a good idea. The bigger the aoe, the better an idea it is.
Meanwhile, some time during the process, a corehound look-alike dog wanders near the gate, becomes "unbanished", and attacks you. A standard mob, but he'll distract you while you are fending off the line of imps. Thus the "friend recommended".
