Here is a little guide how to progress through instances and custom content on our Northrend realm
Now I will share with you how to obtain Legendary and slightly Buffed weapons: Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker and Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros
First of all, make sure to complete current End-Game Vanilla content in this Order so you can clear all Access Requirements:
Maraudon - needed for Blackrock Depths (Defeat Princess Theradras) Note: there are 2 entrances to Maraudon and 3 teleports inside Blackrock Depths - needed for Blackrock Spire (Defeat Emperor Dagran Thaurissan) Note: .t ShadowForgeCity will make your dungeon run shorter Blackrock Spire needed for Stratholme (Defeat Overlord Wyrmthalak) Stratholme needed for Zul'Gurub (Defeat the evil masterminds inhabiting Stratholme) Zul'Gurub needed for Molten Core (Defeat Hakkar. but get HourGlass from priestess Arlokk first so you can remove his stun) Sulfuras, Hand of Rangaros needed for Blackwing Lair (Obtain Sulfuras from Asura and Mr.Pickles custom content)
Once you have cleared Zul'Gurub's Hakkar, you can obtain Both weapons
To obtain Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker the legendary sword still wielded by Thunderaan, Prince of Air:
-Slay and loot Firelord's two lieutenants, Baron Geddon and Garr. These two have halves of ancient talisman known as the [Bindings of the Windseeker] -Take [Bindings of the Windseeker] to Highlord Demitrian in Crystal Vale in Silithus and "Examine the Vessel" , Then Clear MC and loot Ragnaros -When you have these items, proceed to do "Thunderaan the Windseeker" quest which will spawn him if you have the needed items from MC: Enchanted Elementium Bar (10) Essence of the Firelord Bindings of the Windseeker Bindings of the Windseeker - Thunderaan the Windseeker has 60% chance to drop Thunderfury, if no luck, try again tommorow. These quests are now DAILYIES meaning you can even get 2 - When you give Dormant Wind Kissed Blade to Highlord Demitrian for "Rise, Thunderfury and give me some Splinters!" quest (it is not a Daily!) you will be rewarded with 11 splinters for later Atiesh Questline
To obtain Sulfuras, the weapon of choice for Ragnaros the Firelord:
- Farm 66 Sulfuron Ingots from Golemagg the Incinerator -You have to slay Ragnaros, He has a 60% to drop Sulfuron Hammer - Go to Lokhtos Darkbargainer in the Grim Guzzler in Blackrock Depths (type .t grimguzzler) and form contract with the Thorium Brotherhood - A Binding Contract will reward you with Demonic Eye of Sulfuras which you can use to teleport to Asura to Obtain Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros ,Demonic Soul Bones tokens and Long Penetration Sour Sausage which teleports you to Mr.Pickles, finall Boss
Scepter of the Shifting sands content is released and Ahn'Qiraj Ruins and Temple are Open Now
Important update:This entire questchain can now be skipped and it will be used for obtaining the Vanilla custom Legendary weapons and starting quests for them. So you can enter Ruins of AQ straight after clearing Blackwing's Lair
Here is a comprehensive guide for The Scepter of the Shifting Sands quest chain: Blizzlike Guide
This legendary quest chain has been nerfed and edited to make it more simple and easy by adding certain teleport locations, making nozdormu reputation farming faster with spawning Baristolth of the Shifting Sands at .t hiveashi .t hivezara .t hiveregal and ofc in .t m1 those quests also need now just 1 or 2 fragments to complete instead of default 200. After you are done with Chronos quests, you can start Green Scepter Shard with .t malfurion and there just kill the Shade of Eranikus straight ahead and talk with Malfurion to start the green Scepter Shard questline (this saves you from having to kill your way through whole maze of a dungeon and reach this place) Since Onyxia is not yet available, [Chapter VI] of draconic for dummies is dropped by custom boss "Steroid Goblin Engineer" he also drops many other required items for scepter shards quests.
Make sure to read quest descriptions as in some i've left valuable info about .tele locations and such At the end of this questline, remember to visit here
for these weapons are slightly customized with better stats and dmg.
Once you have Banged the Gong and have The Scepter of the Shifting Sands item in your bag, head over to the Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj and kill bosses there to unlock the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj.
Truth is my Sword and my Shield
Edited by Marko [Aug 11, 2018 9:49:11 GMT] No longer need to do Scepter of the shifting sands for instance progression :D
Today have created and written some guides for content and spawned objects which have them written down at .t m1 Now will copy-paste those guides so they can be here as well
The weapon of Legends so many dreamed of back in vanilla days.. you can obtain the Corrupted Ashbringer with vp or dp from item shop and then grasping it firmly in your hand (need the corrupted ashbringer custom aura), you can go to Scarlet Monastery cathedral (the entrance to it is on flames). Inside the cathedral go forward and proceed all the way to the Crusader's Chapel. The people there will all bow down before the might of Ashbringer. Wait a little by the Scarlet Commander Mograine and His father will come manifested by your sword. Use the portal to the Ashbringer dimension and slay the Ghost of Highlord Mograine, he will drop the ancient curse you will need for purging your Corrupted Ashbringer. Talk with the now revived Inquisitor Fairbanks and learn u must go to .t lightshopechapel Once there, talk with Duke Nicholas Zverenhoff to begin one of most epic custom questlines in the game!
To obtain Atiesh, the best legendary weapon dreamed of by all casters since vanilla days, you will have to buy ingredient items for it from item shop by vp or dp. This item will start the questchain for obtaining Atiesh which will end up leading you into Stratholme to cleanse the staff, followed by summoning and slaying the Demonic Atiesh Brothers. The summoning location is in the Festival Lane west of the Alonsus Chapel, in between the western ("Scarlet") and eastern (Scourge) districts of Stratholme. Know that Atiesh as a special legendary weapon, as well as Ashbringer will have their upgraded versions in each expansion.
Small reminder of the Shifting Sands questline
Remember you should keep reading quest descriptions in this questchain as some are customized and contain importrant clues like teleport locations. So Begin by Accepting the quest What Tomorrow Brings, offered by Baristolth of the Shifting Sands right here. You will end up farming some silithid carapace at .t hiveregal and giving it right in to him untill you reach neutral or friendly with the brood of nozdormu. The questline seemingly ends at Anachronos with the quest "The Charge of the Dragonflights" , but this is not the case. Anachronos wants you to locate the 3 dragon shards located somewhere in Azeroth, specifically the Green, red and blue shards. to start Green Scepter Shard questline, go to .t malfurion and he will start it. For Red Scepter Shard go to .t blackwinglair and speak with Vaelastrasz. To start the final Blue Scepter Shard, go to .t Azuregos follow speed buffs to his dead boss and then to his talking living version. [Chapter VI] of draconic for dummies is dropped by custom boss "Steroid Goblin Engineer" he also drops many other required items for scepter shards quests at .t isleofdread. Take care when doing the Nightmare Dragons, you might need help and are difficult to solo. At the end of this longest questline in the game, when you "Bang a Gong!" and take "Treasure of the Timeless One" you will have your Scepter in hands and can proceed to Ruins of AQ and after killing main boss there to Temple of AQ
Going beyond the Dark Portal
To access Outlands, first finish the Shifting sands questline, obtain the scepter of shifting sands and go do Ruins of AQ, then inside Temple of AQ get the Mark of C'thun from that final ancient God boss. In the meantime get the Reforgecraft medallion by voting for 1 day and you will be all set for the Dark Portal Event! Once ready, go do the Towards the dark portal quest at .t darkportal and obtain your custom tabard. After that proceed to Highlord Tirion Fordring and start the "Opening of the Dark Portal" quest that is actually a custom scripted event. Dark Portal Event is failed if: 1. Boss kill Tirion. Boss must be long distance away from Tirion or will kill him. 2. All party members died or teleported out of event zone. 3. Party leader changed or gone offline. Also longer than 15mins passed for 1 wave Once you manage to end this demonic invasion, you will receive a piece of the dark portal and be able to enter outlands
Conquest of Outlands
Ramparts normal -> Blood furnace normal -> Shattered halls normal Shattered halls normal -> Ramparts Heroic -> Blood furnace Heroic -> Shattered halls Heroic then Magtheridons Lair.

Once you finish em all and get the Gruul's lair stone you can enter it. 5-6 [Demonic Soul Bones] are dropped by Hellfire Citadel normal dungeons bosses and 9-11 by heroic difficulty bosses For Auchenai Key there is a custom quest to obtain it faster (instead of farming lower Shattrath city rep). Go to Veil Shalas at .t auchenaikey , take quest from Vekax and kill required mobs and boss.
