Tablets of the Earth (quest)
80 (Requires 1)
Some time ago, Brann sent King Magni an urgent message from Ulduar. He said he'd found an ancient titan cache with mysterious and important relics. King Wrynn dispatched one of his fastest ships to Northrend to transport the courier. I was to meet him here and examine the tablets, but the courier is nowhere to be seen.
Magni is worried, <name>. I haven't heard anything about the courier's arrival. Would you be willing to travel to Stormwind Harbor and see if he's arrived?
Did you meet up with the courier?
Why would Twilight's Hammer take an interest in these tablets? Brann himself wrote that he hardly knows their significance, although he did mention something about becoming one with the earth. I will need to confer with my fellow Explorers' League scholars to decipher these as soon as possible.
Thank you, <name>. Without your aid, these tablets would've fallen into enemy hands.
Then head down to the harbor. Courier Tormun is down at by the waterline near the ship to Darnassus. Interact with him to start a script event!
- You must help me safeguard the Tablets of Earth. The Twilight's Hammer will not stop until they've taken the tablets...
I'll help you defend the tablets.
- Courier Tormun says: Our ship from Northrend was attacked by the Twilight's Hammer! I don't know how they got aboard, but they killed everyone.
- Courier Tormun says: Using a crystal Brann sent with the tablets, I managed to protect myself and escape, but one of the attackers followed me!
- A Twilight Seeker flys in on a black drake!
- Twilight Seeker says: Turn over the tablets and I will allow you a quick death.
- Courier Tormun says: You will never get the tablets!
- Interact with the Mysterious Crystal to gain new abilities and use them to defend Courier Tormun!
After interacting with the crystal, players have access to the following abilities:
- Flame Jet 20 yd range — Destroys Watery Servants. Instant (3 sec cooldown)
- Tidal Wave 20 yd range — Destroys Blazing Servants. Instant (3 sec cooldown)
- Shockwave 20 yd range — Destroys Earthen Servants. Instant (3 sec cooldown)
Three portals will open up around Tormun, one to the south, one to the west, and one to the north, each spawning a random elemental. Use the appropriate abilities on their respective elementals to quickly take them out, as they cannot be attacked normally. Tormun is busy defending himself—he will not cast any attacks on his own—so take out the attacking elementals.
- The crystal has granted you new abilities! Use them to defeat the summoned elementals.
- Twilight Seeker says: Very well, dwarf, I shall slay you and carry the tablets to Cho'Gall.
- Twilight Seeker says: Elementals, I bid you come forth and slay slay this enemy of Twilight's Hammer!
- Twilight Seeker says: Continue the assault!
- Twilight Seeker says: Slay the courier!
- Twilight Seeker says: I will have those tablets!
- Twilight Seeker says: That cursed crystal! We will not give up so easily. We will have that tablet for our ascendants. Perhaps not today, but soon!
- Courier Tormun says: You've done it! You've saved the tablets. Hurry and bring them to Ironforge. I'll be along once I've had some time to recover.
Tormun drops the tablets on the ground. Loot them, then take the tram or fly to Ironforge. Belgrum is in the Library of the Hall of Explorers. Turn in, then run across Ironforge to the Commons, where Mylra awaits.
The tables you recover during this quest will eventually be used by Magni Bronzebeard to "become one with the earth" in an attempt to commune with Azeroth and find out what is causing the earthquakes, leading to his demise.
