Bear witness to the ritual of the Lightforged.
- Forge of Aeons scenario completed
But few truly know what it takes to become the embodiment of Light's wrath.
These few champions among the Army of the Light are ready to undergo their final trial.
Will you do us the honor of bearing witness?
It fills me with hope that we have found allies such as you.
T'paartos is... enthusiastic. He means well, and he has a fire within him that few even among the Lightforged possess. Thank you for keeping him safe <race>.
- 16,450 XP
- On accept
- Captain Fareeya addresses the initiates.
- Captain Fareeya says: My fellow soldiers, the trials you have endured are proof that the Light shines bright within your hearts.
- Captain Fareeya says: One final test remains--and it is the most daunting of all.
- Captain Fareeya says: It will force you to peer into the very core of what you are. Of what you believe yourself to be.
- Captain Fareeya says: Many worthy draenei have undergone this trial, only to return broken... or worse.
- Captain Fareeya says: Should you feel the slightest doubt, turn back now. It will be counted as wisdom, not cowardice.
- Captain Fareeya says: But if you are truly ready, step forward and embrace your fate.
- T'paartos and two initiates step forward.
- Captain Fareeya says: T'paartos... we have discussed this. Each initiate must be accompanied by a second. Where is yours?
- T'paartos says: T'paartos needs no one to aid him!
- Captain Fareeya says: The last initiate who attempted the trial alone came back in pieces. Choose a second, or head back to the barracks.
- T'paartos says: So be it! T'paartos shall bring... this puny one!
- Player stands with T'paartos.
- Captain Fareeya says: An unorthodox choice but... technically still within the rules. I have never known <name> to back down from a challenge.
- Captain Fareeya says: Let the trial begin. Light be with you both.
- T'paartos says: T'paartos!
Stage 1: The Cave
- Meet with T'paartos
- Ancient Guide says: The only way is forward.
Run forward to T'paartos.
Stage 2: Unwelcome Reminder
- Follow T'paartos
- T'paartos says: You should know something, friend <race>. T'paartos did not choose <name> because of your puniness.
- T'paartos says: T'paartos saw <name>'s heart on the field of battle. You are the bravest <class> T'paartos has ever seen.
- (head bauble) Ancient Guide says: Pain is the architect of memories.
- T'paartos says: T'paartos remembers a place like this...
Stage 3: Empathy
- See the past
- Erlani says: How'd a runt like you get so FAT, T'paartos?
- Raluun says: Fatty probably doesn't understand the question 'cause he's so STUPID!
- (head bauble) Ancient Guide says: There is no kindness here.
- Erlani says: Aww, the fat runt is crying!
- Raluun says: Hahahaha! What a BABY!
- Young T'paartos runs away crying.
- T'paartos says: Other children were... not always kind to T'paartos.
- Raluun says: Should we go after him?
- Erlani says: Nah. Let tubby play with his frogs.
Stage 4: Sorrow
- Enter the swamp
- T'paartos says: Come. T'paartos thinks he knows what little T'paartos might do.
Stage 5: Comfort
- Child found
- (head bauble) Ancient Guide says: Anguish and hurt... the search for solace.
Follow T'paartos through the swamp, clearing the path through Swamp Toads.
- T'paartos says: T'paartos made friends with critters. Frogs, elekk, bugs... but not snakes. Never snakes!
Stage 6: The Serpent
- Slay Swamp Serpent
- (head bauble) Ancient Guide says: Is there no comfort? No relief?
A Swamp Serpent attacks.

Follow T'paartos to the base of a tree.

- (head bauble) Ancient Guide says: Distraction provides escape.
- T'paartos says: T'paartos remembers a place like this one. A time he dug too deep.
Down beneath the tree, T'paartos runs into his lower self, walking around near a Crystal. Interact with it.
Stage 9: Furious
- Slay Crystal Fury
- Digging a crystal will turn the crystal into a hostile Crystal Fury.
- (head bauble) Ancient Guide says: Unfair! Unjust! Nothing is ever what it seems!
Defeat the Crystal Fury alongside T'paartos.
Stage 10: Shadows
- Conquer 7 Doubts and Fears
- (head bauble) Ancient Guide says: Enemies lurk within every shadow. Can this darkness be stopped?
- T'paartos says: Was T'paartos meant to walk this path? Is T'paartos worthy to become Lightforged?
Stage 11: In Hiding
- Find Cave
- (head bauble) Ancient Guide says: Is solitude the answer? No one can hurt you if you remain alone.
- T'paartos says: Hmm... There...
Follow T'paartos west to another cave entrance.
Stage 12: Out of Sight
- Defeat Terror
- (head bauble) Ancient Guide says: Safe. Secure. Away from everyone. Everything.

Stage 13: Possibilities
- Follow T'paartos
- (head bauble) Ancient Guide says: Fear is relentless. Unyielding. A foe to be defeated.
- T'paartos opens a chest where a little T'paartos jumps out and runs out the cave.
- (head bauble) Ancient Guide says: Even amidst hopelessness, there is respite.
Stage 14: Dark Offer
- Free T'paartos
- (head bauble) Ancient Guide says: Perhaps to overcome fear and darkness, one must embrace it.
- Find a vision of T'paartos lying on a stone bed with a Dark Naaru hovering above him.
- T'paartos says: This T'paartos is pledged to the Light, yet... treats with the darkness? This cannot be T'paartos' fate!
Interact with the T'paartos on the altar.
Stage 15: Descent
- Follow T'paartos
- T'paartos says: No! The darkness will not claim T'paartos!
- (head bauble) Ancient Guide says: An offer refuted... and yet the fear remains.
Stage 16: Aspects
- Kindness and courage are not the only truths. What of fear? What of frustration?
- (head bauble) Ancient Guide says: Within one soul exists many truths. Some noble. Others...
- T'paartos says: Ahh, Ika. T'paartos rescued this elekk when its mother was killed.
Further down the ramp, T'paartos is facing off against four Burning Fiends:
- T'paartos says: T'paartos has faced many such fiends in the Army of the Light.
Deeper, T'paartos is straining against a large boulder:
- T'paartos says: T'paartos can lift mountains!
Onward to find T'paartos boasting to a crowd of Exodar citizens:
- T'paartos says: This is... slightly embarrassing for T'paartos.
In a small part of the tunnel, T'paartos is cowering in front of nine serpents:
- T'paartos says: Ugh! Can <name> make the snakes go away?
At the very bottom of the cave, another scene with T'paartos in front of a crowd of citizens, but this time the crowd is laughing at T'paartos:
- T'paartos says: No... this is not real. This cannot be the true T'paartos!
Stage 17: Demise
- Help T'paartos defeat T'paartos the Fallen
- (head bauble) Ancient Guide says: Does the path lead to greatness? Glory? Or obliteration?
- T'paartos says: T'paartos must see this through!
- T'paartos says: No...
- T'paartos the Fallen says: Such power awaits us, T'paartos.
- T'paartos the Fallen at 50% health.
- T'paartos the Fallen says: The Light is not the way to true strength.
- T'paartos the Fallen says: Shrug off the chains the Light has used to bind you.
- At 10% health, T'paartos the Fallen will strangle T'paartos off the ground.
- T'paartos the Fallen says: Yes... give in, T'paartos. Embrace true power!
- T'paartos casts and is reborn as a Lightforged draenei. T'paartos the Fallen is slain.
- T'paartos yells: ENOUGH!!!
- T'paartos yells: The Light has always been with T'paartos! He will NEVER abandon the Light!

- On complete
- High Exarch Turalyon says: Welcome back, T'paartos.
- High Exarch Turalyon says: T'paartos... You confronted your fears... your failings... and have been reborn.
- High Exarch Turalyon says: We all have darkness inside us. It is no easy thing to face.
- T'paartos says: T'paartos realizes this now.
- High Exarch Turalyon says: This is an official ceremony. Do not interrupt.
- T'paartos says: T'paartos is sorry.
- High Exarch Turalyon says: From this day forth, you are Lightforged.
- High Exarch Turalyon says: Pheta thones gamera. Light guide our path!
- T'paartos says: T'paartos!
- High Exarch Turalyon says: T'paartos is a bit... unconventional. But he will serve our cause well.
- High Exarch Turalyon says: Champion, it is time for us to return to Stormwind. Fareeya, spread the word. The Lightforged now fight for the Alliance.
- Captain Fareeya says: With pleasure, High Exarch.
