The Violet Eye is a secret sect founded by the Kirin Tor of Dalaran to spy on the Guardian of Tirisfal, Medivh, in his tower of Karazhan. Though Medivh is believed to be dead, the Violet Eye remains in Karazhan, defending against the evil that appears to have taken hold in the absence of its master.

It is unknown whether Medivh's apprentice Khadgar was a member of the Violet Eye, or whether he knew of their activities at the time (though he does seem to be aware of them now).

The Violet Eye was present before the release of the Burning Crusade, however they did not offer any quests.

Known Members


You get reputation for killing bosses and trash mobs in Karazhan. Each trash mob awards around 15 reputation and the bosses 250 reputation. The reputation gained from killing mobs remains consistent from Neutral through Exalted.

Reputation is also gained from the quest line for [The Master's Key], as well as the quest line which takes place inside the instance.


There is a large and complex chain that has the player visit several dungeons of Outland in order for them to obtain the Master's Key, which allows for entrance to Karazhan and beyond.

10275 reputation total



At friendly reputation, Archmage Leryda at the entrance to Karazhan will offer players a quest to receive a ring. The rings are progressively upgraded as the player gains higher reputation.
