The Key to the Arcatraz was used to access the Arcatraz instance in Tempest Keep.

While the key can no longer be earned, players can still ask A'dal for the key if they earned it in the past.


The quest starts in Area 52 from Nether-Stalker Khay'ji. It's called Warp-Raider Nesaad, and it leads you on a series of soloable quests, ending with N [70G] Full Triangle. After you complete this quest, you'll be asked to go to Shattrath and talk to A'dal, who will give you the quest to enter Arcatraz.

The Arcatraz

The quest line for Key to the Arcatraz is fairly easy and begins in the Area 52 area of Netherstorm. Only one person needs the key for the group to enter. A rogue with 350 lockpicking skill can also open the gate.

  2. N [68] A Heap of Ethereals - Nether-Stalker Khay'ji tells you to kill ethereals and collect 10 Zaxxis Insignias.
  3. N [69] Warp-Raider Nesaad - Nether-Stalker Khay'ji asks you to kill Warp-Raider Nesaad and return to him.
  4. N [69] Request for Assistance - Nether-Stalker Khay'ji sends you to Gahruj in Eco-Dome Midrealm.
  5. N [69] Rightful Repossession - Gahruj sends you to recover 10 [Boxes of Surveying Equipment] from Manaforge Duro.
  6. N [69] An Audience with the Prince - Gahruj sends you to Stormspire to deliver the Surveying Equipment to Image of Nexus-Prince Haramad.
  7. N [69] Triangulation Point One - Use the  [Triangulation Device] to find the first triangulation point.
  8. N [70] Triangulation Point Two - Use the Triangulation Device to find the second triangulation point.
  9. N [70G] Full Triangle - Kill Culuthas and recover the  [Ata'mal Crystal]. Bring it to the Image of Nexus-Prince Haramad.
  10. N [70] Special Delivery to Shattrath City - Bring the Ata'mal Crystal to A'dal in the center of Shattrath City.
  11. N [70D] How to Break Into the Arcatraz - Kill Warp Splinter in the Botanica and Pathaleon the Calculator in the Mechanar to recover the two halves of the key to Arcatraz.


While the key is no longer needed, and existing items were removed when Cataclysm was released, completing N [70D] How to Break Into the Arcatraz will still put the key into your inventory. It will disappear when you log out, however.
