The Scepter of the Shifting Sands quest chain.

Hello community:

We would like to give some information concerning the quest chain: The Scepter of the Shifting Sands.

Onyxia will drop only one Chapter VI: Draconic for Dummies per raid.

Note: The first person to loot it will get it. Be careful with that because we will not provide assistance in case of a mistake, ninja looting or similar.

Regarding the Scarab Lord achievement, title and mount:

1) Anachronos will offer “The Might of Kalimdor” quest, where he informs players that they must now wait until the forces of the Horde and the Alliance arrive to Silithus.

2) The entire realm will need to wait 7 full days before the scepter bearer can bang the gong. After that, the quest: “Bang a Gong!” is offered and can be completed. This quest will cease to be available 10 hours after it is first completed on the realm. A World Message will also take place in order to inform the players.

3) After 10 hours, Jonathan the Revelator offers: “Treasure of the Timeless One” quest, that finishes the chain.

All the players who complete the quest Bang a Gong during the first 10 hours will be rewarded with the achievement, legendary mount and the title: Scarab Lord.

Thank you and good luck!

Onyxia’s Lair release date.

Hello citizens of Dalaran,

We are really glad to announce the release of Onyxia’s Lair, which will happen on Friday, May 13th at 17:00 Server Time.

The dreaded brood mother of the black dragonflight Onyxia has come to the forefront of Azeroth, and she awaits you lurking inside of her lair. Be careful heroes, because if you get in her line of sight, she will shatter the ground making the lava rise to hurt her enemies and protect her brood. Only those prepared to face the Trial of the Crusader or Grand Crusader challenges, will be allowed to face this new threat (this means that every player must have earned the Secrets of Ulduar achievement in order to face Onyxia).

To celebrate the release, available only for a limited time, everyone will be able to purchase the Onyxia Brood Whelpling from the shop for only 1 vote/donation point.

As many of you already know, Onyxia’s release has an important role in being able to complete the following quest chain: The Scepter of the Shifting Sands, which rewards a legendary mount and the title ‘Scarab Lord’. The quest ‘Bang a Gong’ will not trigger the War Effort event, since the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj are just being re-opened and not opened for the first time. The quest will cease to be available 10 hours after it is first completed on the realm. Once the first player starts it, several worldwide announcements will take place.

Currently, we are also preparing an announcement with the beta testing dates for Icecrown Citadel. It will require some heavy testing in raid environments, and it is almost certain that a few sessions will be required – the more people helping us, the better. We are pretty excited about it, as we are aiming to have this raid as perfect and polished as possible with all kind of details, including events and roleplays.

Thank you very much for reading.
