|Vortex Pinnacle (5)|
|Throne of the Four Winds (10/25)|
Vortex Pinnacle the level 82-84 five-man wing in the Skywall complex, accessed at[77, 84]
Here the armies of reside, who will not take kindly to any intruders in his elemental plane. The air elementals have entered an unholy alliance with the Worldbreaker, and now threaten the denizens of Uldum. It is up to the adventurers to stop the elemental incursion to the ancient land, and the task is uneasy as they have to face the most powerful lieutenants of the Air Lord.
To pass from platform to platform, players have to jump onto Tornados.
The Vortex Pinnacle exists within the air elemental plane of Skywall. Its elegant structures, crowned with bronze and gold, sit atop platforms bridged by pure air. Yet behind its exterior beauty, the pinnacle harbors Neferset tol'vir, as well as Al'Akir the Windlord's merciless elemental legions. As long as the barrier between Skywall and Azeroth remains open, terror will rain down on Uldum from the skies.
At present, however, it is more than a breathtaking spectacle - it is the staging ground of an army. The lieutenants and servants of Al'Akir, the elemental lord of wind, have allied themselves firmly with Deathwing, and they gather in the pinnacle to lay siege to Azeroth.
Their incursion into the ancient, vital land of Uldum will be impossible to repel on the ground, so those who would defend their world must do the nearly impossible, and take wing to invade Skywall before it is too late.
Location: Uldum. Southeast corner of the zone. It’s one of the most out of the way dungeons. Not only is it tucked in the absolute bottom corner of the world but the dungeon is up in the clouds – think Tempest Keep.
