Shadowlands PTR – Pre-patch Week 2 Preview, New NA Realm Connections

Shadowlands PTR – Pre-patch Week 2 Preview
The week 2 quest chain for the pre-patch event is now available for testing on the PTR.

  • The next series of quest starts off in the Argent Tournament Grounds. You are asked to meet Crusader Renn atop Ironwall Ramparts. She wants you to collect a Collaborator’s Hood and Robe from cultists at Aldur’thar in order to gain access to the Cult Chambers. You must also free some hippogryph riders while there.
  • Next, you travel to Mord’rethar and put the disguise on to investigate what is going on. You find Herald Dalora inside saying that “his power is rising…his chains broken. The remaking has begun. The hour draws near when the Banished One shall reclaim what is his. Death comes for the soul of this world. Make ready! Feed the lives of the unworthy to the hungering Maw.” She disappears soon after and you must then sabotage 3 chamber experiments nearby.
  • When you return to Renn, she has you head over to Icecrown Citadel on an argent hippogrpyh to see what this Herald Dalora is doing. You find her taking willing sacrifices at the gates, and are then tasked with launching an attack from the air on the surrounding undead.
  • Returning to Renn, she says we must destroy Herald Dalora to try and quell this uprising. Killing her unlocks more dailies in Icecrown.
  • Next, you must establish a portal to your capital city at the Argent Tournament Grounds to inform your remaining leaders of the latest situation. You are told to continue helping your allies in Icecrown and word will be sent to the Ebon Blade with hopes that they can devise a plan to help rescue our missing leaders from the realm of death.
