110 (Requires 110)
Item level 825 Artifact relic
Grapple up the Lion's Rest cliffs, sneak through Stormwind City to the SI:7 courtyard, and then kill Detheroc.
- 2nd Grapple Point reached
- SI:7 Courtyard reached
- Detheroc slain
- Speak with Mathias Shaw (Optional)
- Meet with Taoshi in the Chamber of Shadows
Detheroc has SI:7's finest snipers on all of the rooftops. We can't mount up and we can't fly. There are grapple points above so that we can move up the cliff.
We've also setup hay bales to hide in along the likely routes to SI:7.
We just need to stealth in and kill Detheroc. Once we get up there, we'll separate to increase the chances of at least one of us making it through the city.
Good luck, <name>.
You shall be granted the title: Shadowblade
Congratulations, Shadowblade <name>!

Warning: You are not placed in a phased Stormwind City for this quest!
- Quest accept
- Master Mathias Shaw says: We'll split up and stealth in. Keep moving. Use the hay bales if you get into trouble.
- Taoshi says: See you at SI:7. Good luck, <name>.
There are Wanted: Dead! posters in the streets.
- Reach SI:7
- As the rogue adventurer arrives, Taoshi is seen fighting Lord Tony Romano while Jasper Fel is sapped. Across the room, Sloan McCoy appears to have also been incapacitated.
- Taoshi says: They're upstairs, <name>!
- Arthur Huwe says: What's the meaning of this, <name>? I thought we were all on the same side!
- Master Mathias Shaw yells: I'm the real Mathias Shaw.
- Master Mathias Shaw yells: No, I am! Kill him, <name>!
- The false Mathias Shaw temporarily stuns the rogue adventurer and the true SI:7 leader.
- Master Mathias Shaw yells: Enough! I need more room.
- He jumps to the bottom floor and assumes his true form.
- Detheroc yells: My swarm will destroy you!
- Taoshi joins in on the fight, having successfully incapacitated Tony Romano.
- Detheroc yells: Go to sleep. Forget everything.
- Detheroc says: Your Alliance and Horde are destined to destroy each other...
- Detheroc laughs as he vanishes.
- Taoshi says: Perhaps, but not any time soon, demon.
- Master Mathias Shaw says: It's over. Speak with me when you're ready, <name>. I'll get us safely out of Stormwind.
- Mathias Shaw
- I cannot begin to thank you for all that you have done, <name>. You've given me back SI:7 and saved the Alliance and Horde from a costly war we could have ill afford.
- The Burning Legion would have destroyed us all.
- It goes without saying, if there's anything I can do for you, just let me know.
- Are you ready to get back to Dalaran and the Hall of Shadows?
- I'm ready. Let's get out of here, Mathias.
- On complete
- Taoshi says: Detheroc is dead and Mathias Shaw is restored to his role as leader of SI:7.
- Taoshi says: All-out war between the Alliance and Horde has been averted. We can now focus our full attention upon the Burning Legion.
- Taoshi says: We will destroy them by every means possible. Through treachery and subterfuge. Through guilde and assassination. And yes, by laying down our lives if needs be.
- Taoshi says: Let us celebrate the one who made all of this possible, our newest Shadowblade, <name>!
- Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): Added.
