Stop the Ascension! (Horde)
+350 Warsong Offensive
Present the Vrykul Scroll of Ascension near the Thane's Pyre to call him out and slay him. Afterward, due to the nature of the ritual, you're sure that Greatmother Ankha at Camp Winterhoof will be interested in seeing the scroll.
- Halfdan the Ice-Hearted slain
This huge scroll is made from dragon skin. Unfurling its more-than-ten-foot length, you can see that the images painted upon its scaly surface depict a mysterious vrykul ritual.
A vrykul thane, surrounded by angelic-looking beings, ascends into the heavens. A mysterious, darkened figure looms large in the picture's background.
A tingling in your gut tells you that the thane of Skorn is about to do this. You must stop it! A large pyre sits at the top of Skorn in front of the thane's lodge.
Yes? How may I help you, child?
Yes, that is ominous-looking, and you obviously had the right of it.
Thank you for bringing this scroll to me. I will study its implications. If I were to hazard a guess, I would say that these vrykul have a way to transcend death; at least those that are worthy.
By defeating the Winterskorn thane, you proved him unworthy. Who knows what he would have become, and what terror he might have rained down upon us, had you not slain him?
This item will drop from one of the pathing casters. The bonfire is up top. Be certain to bomb the towers on the way up and then fight towards the center. Don't stay in range of the towers in case they respawn! Clear some room, but the whole top area does not need to be devoid of mobs when the scroll is presented.
- Halfdan the Ice-Hearted yells: You think I do not know what you are trying to do? You think I haven't been watching you?
- Halfdan the Ice-Hearted yells: You will not stop my ascension, tiny <race>. Time to die!
- After his death
- Val'kyr Observer yells: How unfortunate, Halfdan.
- Val'kyr Observer yells: We find you unworthy of ascension, Halfdan. Let your soul know oblivion!
