FULL GUIDE: Obsidian Throne ENDGAME CONTENT

There is a location in Waking Shores called Obsidian Throne.
This location is an endgame content in which you help Wrathion or/and Sabellian and also other NPC´s in order to take control of the zone. 

Basically this zone requires you to farm key fragments in which you can make it into a key. This key can be turned in at 4 different NPCs. Based on who you turn it in to, you will get rewarded with reputation and unlock daily quests. You can also unlock endgame crafting. 

This zone also unlocks two new reputation factions: Wrathion and Sabellian with vendors tied to both of them. 


How to start the endgame content in Obsidian Throne


Once you are level 70, you will get new World Quests each week, and one of them is located in the Obsidian Throne. This world quest is called “Allegiance To One” in which you choose to support either Wrathion or Sybellian. Each week you can change which one you want to support. 

Once you have chosen you will be rewarded with 200 reputation with Valdrakken and the world quest reward. 

You will trigger a World Quest called Key of Loyalty in which you farm 30 Key fragments + 3 Key Farming make a Greater Obsidian key.

This key is turned into either Wrathion or Sybellian (based on which one you choose to support) and it rewards you with an Obsidian Strongbox. 

Once that is completed, you can farm more Key fragments and Key Farmings to make a Restored Obsidian key. This time, you can choose to turn in the key between 4 different NPC´s:

  • Wrathion
  • Sabellian
  • Forgemaster Bazentus
  • Igys the Believer

Progress Bar - Triggers an EVENT


Each of them has a progress bar between 1-10, that you fill up. This bar is shared between all players.  Turning in an Obsidian key will fill up the bar 1/10. 

When the progress bar is filled, an event starts and they differ from each other. This event is actually a Bonus Objective that anyone can participate in. 

WRATHION

The bar is called “Vault Barrier Rune”

“Find restored Obsidian keys, and we shall unlock the full potential of the Obsidian Citadel.”

Once the bar is filled, a small event starts in which you will follow NPC´s inside the Citadel and fight a Rare spider. No rewards atm on Alpha testing. 

SABELLIAN

The bar is called “Defense Prepared”

Thank you. Your support in this matter shall bolster my claim to the throne.”

It requires 10 Obsidian Key turn-ins in order to fill the entire bar. 

When the bar is full it triggers an event called Death´s Shadow in which you must slay Death´s Shadow. 

A rare spawns in the air just behind Sebellian and flies around in the air. This rare (Death's Shadow) is actually riding on a mount called Qalashi Wingrider.

Unfortunately I didn't manage to kill this rare. 

FORGEMASTER BAZENTUS

The bar is called “Imbued Armor and Weapons”


“A wise choice, all these squabbles over the throne will not solidify our defenses, we must craft weapons and gear to fend off the Djaradin.”

It requires 10 Obsidian Key turn-ins in order to fill the entire bar. 

When the bar is full it triggers an event. 

This event takes you to the inside of the Citadel to bring a chest.
Once the chest is brought back, you can loot it.
Other players that have not participated can also loot the chest once its brought back.
At the moment on Alpha testing there is only old shadowlands loot inside that chest with transmogs and toys. 

 

IGYS THE BELIEVER

The bar is called “Morchok Reformed”


“This contribution shall insure your place among the Deathwing´s chosen few. Together we shall sweep across the world and announce the Hour of Twilight!”

It requires 10 Obsidian Key turn-ins in order to fill the entire bar. 

When the bar is full it triggers an event.
This even summons a Rare called Morchok together with fire elemental adds. This rare cannot be attacked directly. I killed all fire elementals and waited 30 sec after that before the rare could be engaged. 

Killing Morchok rare rewards:

  • 75 reputation with Sabellian
  • 75 reputation with Wrathion


Looting Morchok rare gives:

  • DragonScale Expedition item
    Grants Reputation with the Dragonscale Expedition
  • 2 Primal Chaos
  • Dragon Isles Supply Cache
    Contains valuable supplies used in trades with the factions of the Dragon Isles 


How to Farm Obsidian Keyfragmets


In order to craft an Obsidian key, you need 30 Key fragments + 3 Key Farming . You get these by killing Qalashi mobs in Obsidian Citadel.

There are different types of Qalashi mobs and most of them are Elite.
It doesn't matter if you kill elites or not when it comes to Key fragments.

You do have a higher chance of getting Key Farmings from mobs with names but you can still get them from Qalashi mobs as well. 


The two Reputation factions


The new reputation factions added in this zone are Wrathion and Sabellian. These are not the renown reputation system, nor the friendly/honored/revered/exalted system. This reputation system is similar to reputations we had in earlier expansions in which what one person thinks of you. Similar to Venari in Shadowlands or the farmers in Mist of Pandaria.
