The Scarab Gong Calls Out!


The Lost Scepter, Reforged

The Scepter of the Shifting Sands Questline is Open




Once, long ago, a war erupted between the Night Elves of Teldrassil and the insectoid Qiraji of Silithus. Lead by Fandral Staghelm, the Night Elf forces pushed back the swarm, determined to end their threat. However, after the savage death of Fandral’s son, the Night Elf forces suffered a tragic defeat, and the Qiraji spread from Silithus through Un’goro Crater, all the way to the Caverns of Time. In desperation, Fandral turned to the Bronze Dragonflight for aid.

The Dragons of Time answered.


Gathering their brethren, the green, blue, and red dragonflight, the Brood of Nozdormu aided Fandral’s forces in their fight against the Qiraji, descemating the silithid forces and again driving the insects back to their hive in Ahn’Qiraj. Once contained, Fandral and the dragonflights used their magic to create an impenetrable wall around the ancient temple. Sealed by the Scarab Gong and the Scepter of the Shifting Sands, the dragonflights asked Fandral to watch over the Scepter, lest their armies need to enter Ahn’Qiraj and eliminate it’s denizens once and for all. Fandral, enraged by the death of his son, shattered the Scepter, determined that Ahn’Qiraj would never be opened again.


Dormant for hundreds of years, the Qiraji now stir beyond the Scarab Wall. Their prison has become their fortress, and inside, their numbers swell. As the dragonflights feared centuries ago, Ahn’Qiraj must be opened.


The Scepter of the Shifting Sands must be reforged.




Heroes! The Scepter of the Shifting Sands questline has been released! Once shattered by Fandral Staghelm, it now falls to you to re-assemble the scepter and enter Ahn’Qiraj!


This intensive questline has been fully scripted to work exactly as it did in Vanilla, with a few quality of life exceptions: the boss items, once limited to a single player, are now lootable by everyone in the raid! The race for the Scepter is on!


As always, please report any bugs with the quest chain to our bug-tracker so we can get them functioning properly. Additionally, please note that the Scarab Gong will lay dormant until the War Effort has been completed, and Alliance and Horde troops have gathered in Silithus. Good luck befriending the Brood of Nozdormu, heroes!
