In Saving Yenniku, you must use the to capture Yenniku's soul and return it to his people. This is the final quest in a long chain, available in Grom'gol and Bambala, the first being which can be obtained from Nimboya at the north exit to the camp.
Bring the to Nimboya.
I have reshaped the Mind's Eye into a Soul Gem. Its purpose is twofold: you must use it to stun Yenniku, and once stunned place it upon his head to entrap his soul.
My suspicions that I spoke of earlier were correct: the spirits tell me that Yenniku dwells not with Zanzil the Outcast, but within the Ruins of Zul'Mamwe, to the southwest. Once you have freed Yenniku's spirit, return to Nimboya at Grom'gol.
You will also receive:
- 2950 XP

<Name>. Kin'weelay told me you set out to capture Yenniku.
Is it true? Do you have him?
You've done it! You freed Yenniku from the will of Zanzil and the tyranny of the Skullsplitter, and completed the mission I had thought was so hopeless. Zanzil still looms a threat in the Cape of Stranglethorn, but for now, I at least know that the soul of my chief's son is free.
Our tribe will remember your name in songs, <name>, and we will etch your tale in stone so that it will live forever.
Notes and trivia
- Take the you get when you accept the quest and head to the Ruins of Zul'Mamwe. Yenniku is in the southern corner of the ruins, almost completely alone. Simply use the Soul Gem while targeting him (you don't have to weaken him first or anything), and he will become friendly. Right click him to capture his soul in the gem and create the .
- Nimboya once referred to Yenniku as his own son in the completion text of this quest, saying "...I at least know that my son's soul is free." His words were changed at some unknown point after the Cataclysm quest overhaul to "...I at least know that the soul of my chief's son is free."
- Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Updated for Cataclysm.
