Trial of Valor: The Once and Future Lord of Shadows
110 (Requires 110)
Defeat Helya in the Trials of Valor raid and then use the Soul Prism of the Illidari to claim Illidan's Soul.
- Helya slain
- Illidan Stormrage's Soul claimed
While tracking the master's physical body proved challenging, we were able to locate it in the Nighthold of Suramar. Our intelligence reports that Gul'dan is making final preparations to the Nightwell in order to use its power to usher the soul of Sargeras into Illidan's body.
The only way to stop that from happening is to put Illidan's own immortal soul back.
We do not know how Illidan's soul ended up in the underworld of Helheim, but we speculate that Gul'dan struck a bargain with Helya to make it happen.
<Light's Heart illuminates brightly and seemingly consumes the Soul Prism.>
- 32,900 XP
This quest can be completed on any difficulty. Illidan's soul can be found on the right-side steps in Helya's area.
