NeutralThe Charge of the Dragonflights

60 (Requires 60)




650 EXP (or 39s at level 70)


This quest concludes the introduction to  [The Scepter of the Shifting Sands] quest chain to open the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj.


Eranikus, Vaelastrasz, and Azuregos... No doubt you know of these dragons, mortal. It is no coincidence, then, that they have played such influential roles as watchers of our world.

Unfortunately (and my own naivety is partially to blame) whether by agents of the Old Gods or betrayal by those that would call them friend, each guardian has fallen to tragedy. The extent of which has fueled my own distrust towards your kind.

Seek them out... And <race>, prepare yourself for the worst.


Upon completion of this quest you will gain:

  • 650 XP (or 39s at level 70)


It would appear that the quest chain ends at the conclusion of this quest. However, Neutral  Anachronos gives you a hint that the Scepter was divided into four shards, with the assumption that Anachronos himself still holds one of the four.

Outside of the Bronze dragonflight, of which Anachronos is a part, and the Black dragonflight, of whose leader on Azeroth would have preferred the shards destroyed, the other three flights players had easy access to when this quest was introduced were the Blue, Green and Red flights.

As a level 60 player attempting this quest would have progressed at least partway through Blackwing Lair before even starting the chain, said player would have easily recognized powerful members of the three flights in the forms of Mob  Azuregos, Mob  Eranikus and Mob  Vaelastrasz. The Scepter quest chain thus splits in to three forks:
