2.Researching the Corruption
Gershala Nightwhisper in Auberdine wants 8 Corrupt Brain stems.
Corrupted Brain Stem (8)


Foolish blood elves toil with demonic magic. Have they not witnessed what happened with the naga and with the satyrs of Kalimdor?

I fear that the blood elves will meet a similar deformation. Azeroth cannot afford to give birth to another vile race of monsters.

I wish to study the brain stems of the satyr and naga so that I might deduce what fate the elves are headed toward. In Blackfathom Deeps, on the coast of Ashenvale, you will find both satyr and naga.

'Tis a long journey, <name>.


You can choose one of these awards:
Beetle Clasps Prelacy Cape
Also, you get: 35


Once I have enough samples to study, my true work can begin. With the corrupted brain stems of both the satyr and naga of Blackfathom Deeps I can try to draw a correlation between the mutations.

Perhaps with that gained knowledge we can prevent the blood elves from delving deeper into deformity and evil.


You have traveled far and undoubtedly faced great peril.

Your actions have been selfless. 'Tis for the good of all Azeroth that you help me with my research. I thank you, <name>, for all that you have done.

Now if you'll excuse me I have much work to do....


Upon completion of this quest you will gain:
  • 290 experience (17 40 at max. level)
