== VIALS OF ETERNITY QUEST INFORMATION ==
The Battle of Mount Hyjal is one of the most well-guarded events of
this timeline. Should an intruder alter its outcome, the impact
would extend to all subsequent moments in history.
As the Aspect's prime mate I'm far more in tune with the flow of
time than other bronze dragons. I recently sensed a minute ripple in
time emanating from the events surrounding the Battle of Mount Hyjal.
Someone or something is attempting to change this timeline and they
must be stopped.
Soridormi: Seven vials were drawn from the Well of Eternity by
Illidan. He poured three into the lake on top of Mount Hyjal and a
second Well of Eternity was created. For years the rest were
With the opening of the Dark Portal, we've come to know that he gave
one each to his lieutenants Kael'thas and Vashj. Retrieve what
remains of them; we wil need them as foci to open a gateway to any
events tied to Mount Hyjal, recent or ancient. The outcome of the
Battle of Mount Hyjal must be preserved.
I've asked the impossible of you, yet I expect you to succeed. Much
depends on it.
Objectives: Soridormi at Caverns of Time wants you to retrieve
Vashj's Vial Remnant from Lady Vashj at Coilfang Reservoir and
Kael's Vial Remnant from Kael'Thas Sunstrider at Tempest Keep.
