This quest is part of the Ghostbusting in Stormwind quest chain.
A disturbance has been reported at the Blue Recluse tavern in the Mage Quarter. Strange, invisible creatures now wander the tavern, and I fear a mana rift has formed there.
I want you to investigate the tavern and capture those creatures. Use the cantation of manifestation in the tavern to make the creatures visible, subdue them then use a containment coffer to capture them. When you have enough, return to me with your filled coffers, your empty coffers and the cantation.
Have you captured the creatures, <name>? They must be studied in order to determine the reason behind their arrival.
Very well done! I will study these creatures and, with diligence and luck, determine how they slipped into our world.
Your value to the society of mages grows, <name>.
This quest causes problems for many young mages. This quest is slightly more complicated than most, and the first problems come from not reading the quest closely enough:
- Make sure you have picked up the required items from the table behind Jennea Cannon.
- You have to use the Cantation inside the Blue Recluse to summon the mobs.
- You have to be inside the Blue Recluse ('zzzz' on your portrait) to use the Containment Coffer: the stunned mob does not. Worth knowing if the fight sprawls outside.
The other problem many encounter is that they are overwhelmed and killed by the summoned mobs. This can be addressed by standing closer to the front door of the Blue Recluse when you read the Cantation, which usually results in fewer of the summoned mobs aggroing on you, enabling you to fight fewer at the same time.
A good place to try is the cellar - only one rift spawn will be summoned there.
If the mobs are still too much for you, try it again when you are a couple levels higher.
