The Sanctum Wards is part of the Shattered Sun Offensive storyline. Once players have recovered the Sun's Reach Sanctum, N [70 Daily] Arm the Wards! replaces this quest.


Captain Theris Dawnhearth at the Shattered Sun Staging Area wants you to obtain 4 [Mana Remnants] from Combat Wretched Fiends and Combat Wretched Devourers and use them to energize one of the Crystal Wards surrounding the Sun's Reach Sanctum to the north.


Our first priority is to capture the Sun's Reach Sanctum. Once we've secured it, we'll be able to use its energy to open a portal from Shattrath.

The sanctum is overrun with the Wretched - former blood elves who've devolved into mindless husks of their former selves. Its defenses would've normally prevented this intrusion, but the Wretched have stolen the power sources from the protective wards.

Hunt down the Wretched and get the mana remnants they carry. Use them to energize the sanctum wards.


Once you have collected four [Mana Remnants], go to the Sun Reach's Sanctum and use them on the floating red crystals just outside of it.


You will receive: 3g 40s


Have you activated the crystal wards, <name>?


Good work, <name>. The wards are slowly regaining their power. The sanctum will be ours in no time.
