Item level 518 bracers
23g 60s



Plant the Focusing Lens atop the Exarch's Rise in Shadowmoon Valley.


We must give the traitor no place to hide. I have a focusing lens that will illuminate cloaked fel energy. If it were placed on a high point, it could act like a beacon, lighting up anyone in town who reeks of the fel taint.

There is a prayer circle atop the Exarch's Rise to the north that will serve our purpose. Plant the focusing lens, <name>. If you reveal anything, deal with it. Then meet me below.


You will receive one of:

What happened up there?

Head northwest from Maladaar's position, up the highest hill of the area. Up top in the center of the area, find Exarch Othaar:

Othaar is kneeling in front of the shrine. At your approach, he greets you as he stands and walks near the center.
Exarch Othaar says: Ahh, it's you. Trust me, friend, I will handle this. You may go.

Interact with the ghostly Maladaar's Focusing Lens object:

Othaar becomes concerned, grows insistent, then angry.
Exarch Othaar says: What is that? Is that Maladaar's work? No no, you don't need to do that. He is not to be trusted.

Finish the cast:

Othaar is knocked on his rear; he's covered with fel energy!
Exarch Othaar says: Damn him. I thought I'd gotten rid of Maladaar when I gave him up to the Iron Horde.
Exarch Othaar says: Yes, I had Hataaru killed. And you are next.
Othaar turns hostile.

Attack him. At 75%:

Exarch Othaar says: I am not the traitor here. It was the false prophet Velen who betrayed our people.

At 60%, Othaar goes immune for a few seconds:

Exarch Othaar says: I serve our true master now. The legion whose call I once denied.
Exarch Othaar says: My Lord Sargeras will scorch this pathetic world, as he has countless others.

Keep attacking. At 40%:

Exarch Othaar says: I have sworn the sacrament. I have taken my new name... Socrethar.
Successfully kills player
Exarch Othaar says: The Legion's power is unsurpassed.

As Socrethar

He turns, revealing his true form as Socrethar, an elite with full health!
Socrethar says: There are others at my command. In Shattrath and Auchindoun.
Get him to 60%.
Socrethar says: Enough! When next we meet, it will be on MY terms.
Socrethar channels Demonic Rift to escape.
Socrethar says: Tell the remaining exarchs to number their days.
Successfully kills player
He laughs.
Socrethar says: The Legion will prevail.


<The Exarch listens to your tale, his face contorting into concern, grief, and finally anger.>

So Othaar has lost his way. "Socrethar" he calls himself now. At last we have our answer. I fear my capture at the hands of the Iron Horde was his doing. There may be other traitors amongst us - I must hurry back to Auchindoun and make sure we are safe.

In the meantime, I believe the Exarchs owe you a decision...
