Objectives

Speak with Ulfar in Ulfar's Den.

Description

I cannot change your mind, can I? Very well, I may know where you can find your answers.

High in the mountains, there is a hidden alcove of impossibly verdant growth. It is there that the druids of Kul Tiras train in the old ways of the Drust - from before the time of Gorak Tul.

Their leader is a great bear named Ulfar. I know little about him, but few are more qualified to parse the magic of the Drust.

You will find a path to his den along Highroad Pass. Good luck, Inquisitor.

Rewards

You will receive:

  • 23g 40s
  • 17,850 XP

Progress

Yes?

Completion

Forgive my hesitation, mainlander. It would appear the minions of Thros are no longer confined to their own realm.

I will help you cross the threshold into the Blighted Lands.

Notes

On approach:

Ulfar says: A visitor to my den? How curious.

Speak with Ulfar:

It has been a long time since a mainlander step foot in my grove.
Do you wish to learn from the Thornspeakers, or have you come to lay claim to this land, as your kind are so fond of doing?
  • Gossip Who are you?
    I am Ulfar, the last of the Drust Thornspeakers and the teacher of these students. One day my task will be over, I will return to the earth and a new High Thornspeaker will rise to lead, as is the proper way of things.
    But that day has not yet come.
  • Gossip Are you druids?
    We are, <name>. We are guardians of the balance in nature, the keepers of the cycle. Life is a part of nature, as is death.
  • Gossip You're a Drust? Wasn't there a war against them?
    Indeed I am. Not all of my people agreed with the conflict. Have you never seen division among your own?
    We Thornspeakers joined Kul Tiran society. Some of their descendants heard the call of the wilds and wished to learn the ancient ways, and so we have taught them.
  • Gossip I'm looking for a way into the Blighted Lands.
Ulfar says: You wish to enter Thros? I am afraid I cannot help you, mainlander.
Ulfar says: Some pathways are best left closed, lest those on the other side set foot upon them.
Shade of Gorak Tul yells: Oh, we are well past peeking, old bear.
Ulfar says: Gorak Tul! It cannot be!
Shocked, Ulfar runs out to the entrance of his den, where the Shade of Gorak Tul waits in the middle of the clearing.
Ulfar yells: Thornspeakers, to arms!
Two shifted Thornspeaker Students leap in front of Ulfar.
Shade of Gorak Tul says: You know you cannot defeat me, Ulfar. But if it is a fight you seek, then you shall have it!
Shade of Gorak Tul yells: Thros awakens!

Defeat four summoned mobs.

Shade of Gorak Tul yells: You would share our gifts with these wretches, Ulfar? You deserve to burn with them!
Ulfar yells: Who are you to judge who's worthy? Your twisted ways have disgraced our kind, Tul!

Defeat roughly a dozen summoned mobs.

Shade of Gorak Tul yells: This is far from over, old bear.
Gorak Tul vanishes as he speaks, and Ulfar heads back inside.
Ulfar says: It would appear I was mistaken. Thros has come to us.
Ulfar says: This... changes things.
