Alliance Onyxia Quest Chain

Onyxia Guide Index

The Alliance Onyxia attunement quest chain is made up of 15 quests. Due to the difficulty of the quests and the fact that many of them must be completed in 5 man groups it is not advisable to attempt to complete them until level 60. It is possible to do so before, but only with lots of help. The quests are as follows below.

Search for more information on this quest: TTH Search Tool

Objectives: Speak with Ragged John to learn of Marshal Windsor's fate and return to Marshal Maxwell when you have completed this task.

You recall Marshal Maxwell telling you to search for him in a cave to the north.

Notes: Ragged John is found along the north edge of the Burning Steppes zone in Flame Crest. He will not have a question mark over his head, which confuses many players. You must find him and speak to him and work your way through his whole story to complete the quest.

Marshal Windsor

Starting NPC / Location: Ragged John / Flame Crest, Burning Steppes

Ending NPC / Location: Marshal Windsor / Blackrock Depths

Prerequisite: The True Masters

Leads to Quest: Abandoned Hope

Level Obtained: 54

XP Reward: 5400

Search for more information on this quest: TTH Search Tool

Objectives: Travel to Blackrock Mountain in the northwest and enter Blackrock Depths. Find out what became of Marshal Windsor.

You recall Ragged John talking about Windsor being dragged off to a prison.

Notes: To complete this quest you must find Marshal Windsor in Blackrock Depths and speak to him. You must complete this quest in a 5 person group, you can not raid it. Windsor is located in a prison cell in the middle of the cell block. The cell block is located in BRD immediately to your right when you enter. Once done you return to Marshal Maxwell.

This is a difficult quest if you attempt to complete it at level 54. I would strongly suggest waiting to attempt it until most of your group is at least 58 if not 60. This goes for all quests from this point on in the chain.

Abandoned Hope

Starting NPC / Location: Marshal Windsor / Blackrock Depths

Ending NPC / Location: Marshal Maxwell / Morgan's Vigil, Burning Steppes

Prerequisite: Marshal Windsor

Leads to Quest: A Crumpled Up Note

Level Obtained: 54

XP Reward: 5400

Search for more information on this quest: TTH Search Tool

Objectives: Give Marshal Maxwell the bad news.

Notes: Windsor sends you to talk to Marshal Maxwell again. Head back to Morgan's Vigil and discuss with Maxwell. He will not give you the next part of the quest chain though. You must head into BRD again and kill MOBs in the prison area until "a crumpled up note" drops from one of them. This leads to the next quest.

A Crumpled Up Note

Starting NPC / Location: Starts from a random drop from a MOB in Blackrock Depths

Ending NPC / Location: Marshal Windsor / Blackrock Depths

Prerequisite: Abandoned Hope

Leads to Quest: A Shred of Hope

Level Obtained: 56

Quest Level: 58

XP Reward: 6800

Search for more information on this quest: TTH Search Tool

Objectives: You may have just stumbled on to something that Marshal Windsor would be interested in seeing. There may be hope, after all.

Notes: Again you must venture into BRD in a 5 man group to find this note. It drops from a random MOB in the prison area. Take it to Windsor once it drops and you have read it and accepted the quest.

A Shred of Hope

Starting + Ending NPC / Location: Marshal Windsor / Blackrock Depths

Prerequisite: A Crumpled Up Note

Leads to Quest: Jail Break!

Level Obtained: 56

Quest Level: 58

XP Reward: 6000

Search for more information on this quest: TTH Search Tool

Objectives: Return Marshal Windsor's Lost Information. Marshal Windsor believes that the information is being held by Golem Lord Argelmach and General Angerforge.

Notes: To gain the two pieces of information that Windsor needs you must journey further into BRD to find and slay Golem Lord Argelmach and General Angerforge. Both of these bosses are quite difficult and really require the group to be at or very near level 60.

Jail Break!

Starting NPC / Location: Marshal Windsor / Blackrock Depths

Ending NPC / Location: Marshal Maxwell / Morgan's Vigil, Burning Steppes

Prerequisite: A Shred of Hope

Leads to Quest: Stormwind Rendezvous

Level Obtained: 56

Quest Level: 58

XP Reward: 7800

Search for more information on this quest: TTH Search Tool

Objectives: Help Marshal Windsor get his gear back and free his friends. Return to Marshal Maxwell if you succeed.

Notes: The quest is very simple if you know how to do it. I learned this over several runs with guild mates. To make this quest very simple just clear all MOBs from the prison cell area before accepting the quest from Marshal Windsor. You will then be limited to just fighting the spawned attacks instead of all of the regular MOBs as well. If you do this the quest is very simple. Windsor can "almost" fight his way out on his own, once he has collected his armor.

Make sure you stay in range of him the whole time though or you will not get the quest marked as successful. If you do fail this quest for some reason, all you need to do is abandon it, exit BRD to reset it and try again. The clearing takes at least 30 minutes though, so try to to fail.

When you have escorted Windsor to the Blackrock Depths exit he says he will meet you later. You must go and see Marshal Maxwell in the Burning Steppes to continue.

Stormwind Rendezvous

Starting NPC / Location: Marshal Maxwell / Morgan's Vigil, Burning Steppes

Ending NPC / Location: Marshal Windsor / Stormwind City

Prerequisite: Jail Break!

Leads to Quest: The Great Masquerade

Level Obtained: 56

Quest Level: 62

XP Reward: 700

Search for more information on this quest: TTH Search Tool

Objectives: Travel to Stormwind City and venture to the city gates. Marshal Windsor will meet you just inside the city borders.

Notes: This quest is again just a simple travel quest. It does however lead to many issues. Many players assume Windsor will be waiting someplace for them. He will not be. You must travel to the outside gates of Stormwind and walk around near the gates to get him to spawn. He will ride up on a horse and dismount at the gates for you to talk to and continue the quest chain.

The Great Masquerade (Raid)

Starting NPC / Location: Marshal Windsor / Stormwind City

Ending NPC / Location: Marshal Windsor / Stormwind City

Prerequisite: Stormwind Rendezvous

Leads to Quest: The Dragon's Eye

Level Obtained: 56

Quest Level: 62

XP Reward: 10500

Search for more information on this quest: TTH Search Tool

Objectives: Follow Reginald Windsor through Stormwind. Protect him from harm!

Notes: This quest again confuses and scares a lot of players because it is marked as a raid quest and is high level. It is however very easy. Talk to Windsor to start the quest and then follow him through Stormwind on a great scripted scene. At the gates of Stormwind Keep he will ask you to talk to him when ready to proceed. Just talk to him again and he will continue.

The scripted sequence continues in the keep with an argument between Windsor and the Highlord. Keep to the side of the room when this is happening. At some point, the queen will become Lady Onyxia and spawn a large number of elite 62 Dragonkin Guards .

This is what generally frightens players. All you need to do is stand back and let Windsor and Bolvar kill them off. If you would like to help, hit the one that they are attacking. It is not needed though, I have done it on 3 different characters and succeeded all 3 times without helping at all.

The Dragon's Eye (Raid)

Starting NPC / Location: Highlord Bolvar Fordragon / Stormwind City

Ending NPC / Location: Haleh / Winterspring

Prerequisite: The Great Masquerade (Raid)

Leads to Quest: Drakefire Amulet (Raid)

Level Obtained: 56

Quest Level: 63

XP Reward: 7000

Search for more information on this quest: TTH Search Tool

Objectives: You must search the world for a being capable of restoring the power to the Fragment of the Dragon's Eye. The only information you possess about such a being is that they exist.

Notes: Very little information on the location of Haleh is given to you. To find here you must travel south and west of the city of Everlook into the dragon cave that you find there. The cave is full of elite dragons an dragonkin. You must get deep into the cave to the largest room and find a glowing blue glyph on the floor. Stand on this mark for a few seconds and you will be transported above the cave to Haleh.

The cave is very difficult to get through alone unless you are a rogue or druid. You have two basic choices to get far enough into the cave to reach the glyph. The first is to corpse hop through the cave until you reach it. The second is get a group of at least 3 60's to deal with the dragons and fight your way in.

Drakefire Amulet (Raid)

Notes: You are allowed to raid this quest with up to 15 players. General Drakkisath is the final boss in Upper Blackrock Spire. Once you have killed him he will drop 2 to 4 blood. You may have to run UBRS several times to get yours if many people in your group need the blood.

Once you have the blood return to Haleh and she will create the Drakefire Amulet for you.
