This is a post full of pictures. In fact, it’s got a lot of pictures. I recently finished gathering my Eternal Embers to advance to the next step in the legendary questline, and I thought I’d share it with you 🙂 Also, It’s pretty spoiler-rific. So if you don’t want to see what happens. You should bow out now. Don’t worry, I won’t be upset.
Back-story (AKA Pictures I didn’t take)
After Killing one of the Molten Giants in the Firelands, a class with a DPS Caster spec is granted a quest titled “A Legendary Engagement”. A Bronze Dragon in Stormwind or Orgrimmar tells you that Anachronos, Heir of Nozdormu, wants to speak with you.
After speaking to Anachronos he shows you a vision of what is in the future for Azeroth due to some sort of event that has been obscured from him. He tells you to gather 25 Eternal Embers from the bosses in Firelands, plus 3 Sands of Time, and he will forge the “Timeless Eye” allowing you to see this event that he cannot.
Anachronos forges the Timeless Eye for you. The Dragons have determined that you need to take it to The Nexus, where the event in question has been found to take place. Upon flying into Coldarra (Or Hearthing, or getting summoned), You are thrown into a cutscene.
You get spotted by this awesome looking Dragon, who goes on to tell you that Lesser Beings are not welcome in Coldarra, and that you should leave. Now.
After explaining why you are there, She tells you that you should be glad another of the Blue Dragons didn’t spot you, or else you would possibly be toast before getting the chance to explain yourself. She says to meet her in the Nexus
Which you do.
Then you have to fight your way through some sentries, and evil interrupting/silencing Mana Hunters (dogs). Tarecgosa tanks the big guys for you, so you can pewpew your lazers as fast as possible and kill the dogs and sentries. After spotting some dragonkin, she freezes you in a block of ice, and tells them that you’re her prisoner. They walk away, you attack another sentry, and this one, seeming to be more intelligent than the last few, runs off to tattle on you.
You find Tarecgosa being held by 2 sentries, and after picking them off one at a time, she walks with you down a hallway, and sees that there’s a wall in the way. She uses her magical purple/pink Dragon Fire to break down the wall, and tells you to watch her back while she does so. Sometimes, a big demon dog spawns at this point.
When the wall is finally broken down, Tarecogsa sees that there are Black Dragonkin in the Nexus, and she’s really confused/probably sort of ticked off. You get to jump across some platforms to get across the rift, then she breathes ice crystals at all the mobs standing on the other side. It’s pretty awesome.
Once you get to the platform with the boss Thyrinar, he’ll chain Tarecgosa down, and you’ll have to fight him solo. There’s a lot of running around, and mobs spawn periodically, but if you keep up dots, remember to Psychic Scream/Fear/Root/Ring of Frost the adds to pick them off one by one, it’s totally doable 😀
After the boss is dead, you get to look through the Timeless Eye. In this cut scene, you see Arygos talking to Deathwing. Who promises that if made the new Aspect of Magic, that he’ll totally be on Deathwing’s side. (Which is exactly what we wanted, right?)
After the cut scene ends, you get to go chat with Kalecgos at Nordrassil and tell him what you saw in your vision!
Hope everyone enjoyed the pictures! Sorry there weren’t more!
