The Tempest Key was the key to enter the Eye of Tempest Keep, the inner sanctum of Kael'thas Sunstrider. The Tempest Key was not used like an actual key; instead, it was a passive item like the Drakefire Amulet that attuned the player to the instance.

After it was removed as the key, players who completed the chain earned the title Champion of the Naaru. Even this option was removed with Wrath.

The Tempest Key is given after a long quest chain that begins after completing the Cipher of Damnation quest chain (starts with N [70] The Hand of Gul'dan) for [The Cipher of Damnation] in Shadowmoon Valley. Upon completing the Cipher quest, you will receive (immediately) a letter in the mail from Khadgar, asking you to travel to Shattrath City to speak to him.

Upon completing all four quests, A'dal will grant you the Tempest Key (along with [Phoenix-fire Band]) and you will be allowed to enter The Eye, Kael'thas' sanctum, for the final confrontation with the "Sun King".
