Veteran of the Wrathgate

I had thought to do a post on this quest chain, after several guildies approached me on it after I aquired the achievement yesterday. It is an awesome chain, and I recommend that everyone gets a chance to see it. However, I got caught up in piles of homework, so instead, my husband Garen has written out this post for you to enjoy today…. I had orginally taken screen shots to include with this post but after some thought decided it is far better to see it for yourself. There are no spoilers here, all information regarding how to help you with the quest and any lore is listed behind the links, so don’t fear, it will still be awesome for you… so without further ado, Garen’s Comprehensive List for the Quest Chain Veteran of the Wrathgate!

 

The other day I’m sitting in guild chat while I quest my happy patookus off in Howling Fjord (The most awesome zone in WoW according to my personal opinion), and I see someone in the guild gets an achievement.

[Guild]: Uberwarrior has earned the achievement [Veteran of the Wrathgate].

Hey, I say to myself, I know what that is. So I click it, and I decide to myself, “I want to complete that quest line”.

ANDREA! Let’s go do that epic quest line!

To which she replies, “fine” (She huffed at me at this point).

So, I hit WoWWiki and look up what I gotta do. After digging for almost 45 minutes I come to the conclusion that this is going to suck. But, the epicness of the quest line makes it worth it.

So, Andrea and I sit down figure out where we are at. We had just finished EVERY SINGLE QUEST in Howling Fjord, so we were off to a good start. Now, I won’t tell the entire line by line of how we got to see the end of this epic quest chain, so here it is. In full linkable glory. I hope you enjoy.

12.     [73] A Righteous Sermon

 

After completing the Righteous Sermon quest line, you then need to complete the following quest chain. This is also in Dragonblight. Just a warning, the Righteous Sermon is about 8 minutes long, boring, and you just wish that the priest would stop talking. HOWEVER, there are some awesome “Exorcist” references during the sermon itself.

1.       [72] The Demo-gnome

2.       [72] The Search for Slinkin

3.       [72] Leave Nothing to Chance &  [72] The Bleeding Ore &  [72] Not in Our Mine

4.       [72] Understanding the Scourge War Machine

 

At this point, you have completed the prerequisites for the most UBER-EPIC quest chain thus far. From here on out is the actual Wrathgate quest line.

2.       [73] Steamtank Surprise

3.       [73] Scattered To The Wind & [73] Breaking Off A Piece

18.     [74] A Royal Coup

19.     [74] The Killing Time

20.     [74] The Battle For The Undercity

 

By the time you hit this point, your jaw will be on the floor, you will be stammering like a fool, and jumping up and down out of sure excitable geekyness.

Of course, you are also now done and have done three things.

1.       You have seen the most EPIC cutscene in the game.

2.       You have invested a few hours into the game that yielded some XP, a little cash, and wasted time while           your parents yell at you to get off that damn computer game and come to dinner.

3.       You got your hands on a fancy little achievement.

Anyways, That’s the quest chain. It’s epic, it’s uber, it’s awesome. It’s done.

Now, go fish up some coins in Dalaran. It’s what all the cool kids are doing.

  2. Actually, you don’t have to do any quests in Howling Fjord to do the Wrathgate questline.

    If you have done Borean Tundra, or haven’t finished the Fjords, or whatever – head over to Star’s Rest in the Dragonblight (near where the Azjol-Nerub and Ahn-Kahet Instance portals are) and talk to the courier that’s sleeping in the “inn” (which is really at tent with a mailbox.

    He’ll give you the quest “Of Traitors and Treason” and you’ll be able to hop on a super fast hippogrpyh and fly right to Winterguard and start the rest of the quest chain!

  3. Nice Anna,
    Thank you for adding that. It’s what most people would do. I went ahead and attached the entire line though, just in case someone felt like doing it all. Hubby actually wrote the post and I forgot to edit in two things, 1st, what you’ve said, and 2nd, that the chain does not end with the cut scene you should continue the quest all the way through for the lore.

  4. Thank you so much for taking the time to do all this, complete with links to Wowwiki. If u were like me and had picked up a quest somewhere in this chain but weren’t sure if it was part of the achievement or didnt even know such achievement existed then the list of quests in order was SO useful. Thank God there are people like you who take the time to help others. Good on you x
