Brann Bronzebeard using the Archivum Console

Archivum Console is a fixed device located in Ulduar.

This device is used to start and end many quests:


Val'anyr's Fragments analysis

Archivum System says: Fragment analysis underway.
Archivum System says: Object identified: Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings.
Archivum System says: Created by the titans themselves, Val'anyr was given to the first Earthen king, Urel Stoneheart. With the hammer he was to create and give life to the rest of his brethren.
Archivum System says: Val'anyr was shattered during the first war between the Earthen and the Iron Dwarves.
Archivum System says: The Weapon's remnants were believed lost in the conflict.
Archivum System says: Probability of successful repair by ordinary means available in this world is close to nil.
Archivum System says: Please hold while theoretical means are analyzed.
Archivum System says: Powerful acidic content theoretically found inside the being Yogg-Saron would count for the liquefaction of Saronite. Submersion in this substance might be sufficient to rebind an alloy of titan origin.

First dialogue with Brann Bronzebeard

Brann Bronzebeard says: Now, this is what we call a nice find!
Archivum System says: Entry denied. Access level insufficient.
Brann Bronzebeard says: I'll show ye access, ye wretched machine. Here it is again: Norgannon's key!
Archivum System says: Access to the Archivum granted. Intrusion protection mechanisms suspended.
Brann Bronzebeard says: Looks just like all the other titan archives me lads have found... only older... and bigger.
Brann Bronzebeard says: Wait a second: this doesn't look right! Next to this blinking light... what's this Algalon signal?
Archivum System says: Initiating query. The Algalon Failsafe is an automated emergency signal following a Prime Designate's demise.
Brann Bronzebeard says: Prime Desigate? Where have I 'eard that before? By my grandfather's beard, Loken is Azeroth's Prime Designate. Loken's death triggered this!
Archivum System says: Affirmative. Timestamp of Prime Designate Loken's destruction coincides with signal activation.
Brann Bronzebeard says: Well? Who's on the listening side of the signal? What's going to happen?
Archivum System says: Searching... Destruction of Prime Designate is considered the first warning sign of systemic planetary failure. Algalon observer entity's arrival is followed by planetary diagnostics resulting in one of two possible reply signals. Reply-code Alpha, signaling "All is well" and Reply-code Omega, signaling planetary re-origination.
Brann Bronzebeard says: Planetary re-origination? Speak plainly, ye blasted machine!
Archivum System says: The decomposition of the planet and its living organisms into base elements: metals, rocks, gases. This is followed by a period of reconstitution of each element into the original planetary blueprint.
Brann Bronzebeard says: Hear that lads? It's only the end of the world! Well, what are ye waiting for, ye rusty machine? Initiate Reply-code Alpha, all is well! Pints are on me!
Archivum System says: Request denied. Reply-codes built into Algalon observer entity. He is both messenger and message.
Brann Bronzebeard says: Well, what's this Algalon going to be looking for with his diagnostics? What are our chances?
Archivum System says: Algalon diagnostics assess danger of systemic Old God corruption in planetary vital functions. Calculating chance of Omega Reply-code...
Archivum System says: Ninety-nine point nine nine percent.
Archivum System says: That's repeating of course.
Brann Bronzebeard says: Blast it, lads. Looks like we've got a fight ahead of us.

Second dialogue with Brann Bronzebeard

Brann Bronzebeard says: New orders! Unlock the entry to the Celestial Planetarium.
Archivum System says: Request denied. Access requires manual verification of the four watchers' sigils.
Brann Bronzebeard says: Four watchers? Sigils? Could ye be a little less cryptic, confounded machine?
Archivum System says: The four watchers of Ulduar: Freya, Thorim, Hodir and Mimiron. The sigils are tied to their physical and mental integrity. All four sigils are required for access to the Celestial Planetarium.
Brann Bronzebeard says: How do we get the sigils from them, then? Just walk up to them and ask them nicely?
Archivum System says: Analyzing watchers status. Please wait.
Archivum System says: Corruption found. External influence gaining control over watchers. Sigils compromised.
Brann Bronzebeard says: You're going to tell us how to... "un-compromise" the sigils, aren't you?
Archivum System says: Sufficient use of force would trigger a reset in watcher functions, removing the external influence.
Archivum System says: As for not endangering the sigils during this process, I can analyze each watcher's status and make that information available to you upon completion of calculations.
Brann Bronzebeard says: I've dreamed of roaming the halls of the titans for years. I never thought I'd be pitted against their creations.

Keepers analysis

Archivum System says: Commencing Watcher Freya status analysis.
Archivum System says: Watcher's powers augmented by presence of Elder servants.
Archivum System says: Analyzing Elder Brightleaf enhancement. Persistent area defenses powered by solar amplification.
Archivum System says: Elder Stonebark analysis reveals a sonic defense that disrupts use of magic.
Archivum System says: Elder Ironbranch scans have uncovered plant based immobilization mechanisms.
Archivum System says: In addition, my analysis links each Elder to an increase in Freya spell-casting, physical or summoning capabilities.
Archivum System says: Destruction of Elder servants will result in lost of enhancements of Watcher Freya. However permanent damage to Freya's person and possessions including her Watcher sigil highly probable.
Archivum System says: Commencing Watcher Hodir status analysis.
Archivum System says: Hodir's sigil appears to be located inside a cache of artifacts.
Archivum System says: Watcher Hodir's temperament and behavior highly unstable. Destruction of cache highly probable during prolonged combat.
Archivum System says: Allies imprisoned in the field of battle are likely to provide synergies and minimize combat duration.
Archivum System says: Preservation of cache is essential to recovering Hodir's sigil.
Archivum System says: Commencing Watcher Mimiron status analysis.
Archivum System says: Watcher Mimiron's sigil is linked to a self-destruct mechanism connected to entirety of the Corridors of Ingenuity.
Archivum System says: Trigger for self-destruct mechanism is code named "Big Red Button". Mimiron's own creation.
Archivum System says: To retrieve Mimiron's sigil, initiate self-destruct sequence and defeat Mimiron before its completion.
Archivum System says: Self-destruct sequence finalized. Have a nice day.
Archivum System says: Commencing Watcher Thorim status analysis.
Archivum System says: An external influence under illusory guise of Thorim's deceased mate Sif has been detected.
Archivum System says: Mental interference from this presence dangerously close from triggering partial memory damage.
Archivum System says: Tactical analysis suggest approaching the arena from the front and splitting secondary force through a side passage at the ground level. This will maximize odds of reaching Thorim's outlook before mental domination by external presence is complete.
