Guide: Unlocking the Wrathgate Quest

Dragonblight has several neat lore related quests, but there is
one really neat one that you will most definitely want to do. I don’t
want to spoil the story, but there are a crapton of quests that you
must complete in order to unlock it and I had a hard time finding an
exact guide. I think you need to be level 72 or 73 (I am alliance by the way, I don’t know what the horde equivalent quest chain is).

In a nutshell: Complete all of the non-group quests from Wintergarde Keep (WGK) as well as any subsequent quests. There are four separate quest lines. Once you unlock the quests at WGK, Quest Lines 1 & 2 can be completed simultaneously. Quest Lines 3 & 4 however are sequential.

Quest Line 1:
There are two ways to start this quest. “Of Traitors and Treason” will
send you to WGK, which will unlock the quest chains leading to the
Wrathgate Quest. This chain is fun and fairly easy to complete since
all of the quests occur in the areas down the hill from the Keep.

  1. There are two ways to start this quest, depending on what starting zone you chose:
  2. High Commander Halford Wyrmbane
  3. Naxxramas and the Fall of Wintergarde
  4. Flight of the Wintergarde Defender
  5. Return to the High Commander
  6. Rescue from Town Square
  7. Find Durkon!The Noble’s Crypt
Quest Line 2:
This chain should become available from High Commander Halford Wyrmbane after completing 1.1 or 1.2. This whole quest line occurs in the mine down the ramp from WGK. The first step is a little annoying because you are competing with other players for the ore nodes.

Quest Line 3:
This quest line unlocks after both one and two have been completed. Roughly half of this chain occurs in the Wintergarde Mausoleum, the other half in northern central Dragonblight.

  1. Into Hostile Territory
  2. Steamtank Surprise
  3. Plunderbeard’s Journal
  4. Chasing Icestorm: The 7th Legion Front

Quest Line 4:
Completing Quest Line 4 will unlock this quest line. I guess this is technically a continuation of Quest Line 3?

  1. An End And A Beginning
  2. Alliance: To Fordragon Hold!
    Horde: The Kor’kron Vanguard!
  3. Alliance: Audience With The Dragon Queen
    Horde: Audience With The Dragon Queen

Return To Angrathar should now be available. Enjoy!
