奎爾德拉:姐妹之劍(Quel'Delar: The Sister Blade)


In ages past the great Dragon Aspects worked alongside the night elves to forge powerful prismatic blades that could be used to thwart any evil that came into the world. They would become known as the blades of Quel'Serrar. One of these blades, which had become lost in time, was recently unearthed again by brave heroes of Azeroth. Now rediscovered, Quel'Serrar is revered once more as a mighty tool of raw power.


Its sister blade, however, has not been seen for many years...


The sword known as Quel'Delar was held by the group of kaldorei who would eventually become the high elves, and it was handed down from generation to generation. Most recently Quel'Delar was wielded by the valiant high elven warrior Thalorien Dawnseeker. Thalorien fought tirelessly in the Troll Wars to defend his beloved home of Silvermoon, the Sunwell, and all of Quel'Thalas. When the Scourge swept through the lands during the Third War, Thalorien was among the last lines of defense for the Sunwell. Despite the sword's power, he was ultimately slain by the overwhelming might of Arthas and his legendary runeblade, Frostmourne. Quel'Delar was thought to be lost forever.


Following the destruction of their homeland, the determined blood elves began to regroup and rebuild. It was during this time that the battle-hardened warrior Lana'thel stumbled upon Quel'Delar, and soon afterward the greatest opportunity to use the blade presented itself: Prince Kael'thas Sunstrider raised an army and combined forces with Illidan Stormrage, who led them north to Icecrown on a mission to destroy the Lich King. Lana'thel readily followed her prince with one thought in mind -- revenge against the Scourge -- but only tragedy awaited her.


In the icy hills of Northrend, Arthas ultimately defeated Illidan and Kael'thas, and the expedition's few survivors were scattered across the frozen wastes. One by one the Lich King sought out those who had challenged him, and Lana'thel found herself cornered. Using Quel'Delar, she struck at him with all her might... but Frostmourne's evil powers overwhelmed her. Through his blade, the Lich King chose Lana'thel to serve him in undeath as queen of the San'layn, a group responsible for overseeing the Scourge's operations across Azeroth.


Queen Lana'thel eagerly carried out her new duties, but every time she looked at her blade, maddening anger would swell within her as she remembered her former life. She could not afford such distractions, and with a scream that echoed throughout Icecrown, she shattered Quel'Delar and flung the fractured pieces as far as she could.




The champions of the Alliance and the Horde who confront the Lich King's armies have but a slim chance of finding the pieces of this fabled blade. If they succeed, the heroes can embark on an epic adventure to re-forge Quel'Delar. They will require the strongest materials and a source of great power to make this shattered blade into the fearsome weapon it once was. Several classes can use Quel'Delar, and the sword can fit several different play styles. For any class that is unable to wield it, however, the Sunreaver blood elves and the Silver Covenant high elves will gladly take this relic of their history in exchange for a usable weapon.


The search begins soon...
玩家們可以在冰冠城塞的五人英雄地城中拾取到破損的劍柄(Battered Hilt),開始這偉大的史詩任務。
1.破損的劍柄(The Battered Hilt)


This battered old sword hilt has seen better days. Before the hilt was snapped from the blade, it must've been a magnificent example of the blacksmith's art.


The graceful symbols and exotic gemstones decorating the hilt suggest that the weapon may have belonged to a powerful person. Surely, the Sunreavers would be interested in hearing about the recovery of such an artifact. Seek out their representatives at Quel'Delar's Rest, to the south of the Argent Tournament Grounds.
玩家將破損的劍柄拿給奪日者的米拉連恩.日炎(Myralion Sunblaze)後,他說他看不懂劍柄上的圖案,讓玩家去找龍眠神殿最上層的卡薩斯。
2.龍族的知識(What The Dragons Know)


There's no mistaking it - this hilt comes from a powerful, ancient weapon, but which one? I do not recognize these particular markings, but we haven't hit a dead end yet.


Korialstrasz, better known as Krasus, has long been a friend to the quel'dorei and the Kirin Tor. With his vast knowledge and resources, he's certain to know something. Travel to the top of Wyrmrest Temple and seek his counsel, then report to Magister Hathorel inside Sunreaver's Sanctuary in Dalaran.
3.白銀誓盟計畫(The Silver Covenant's Scheme)


One of my contacts in the Underbelly caught sight of a Silver Covenant agent gathering information at the Cantrips and Crows Tavern. Silver Covenant members aren't normally found in the sewers, so they must be plotting something.


Go into the Underbelly, find this Silver Covenant agent, and eliminate him. Search the body for any information that might give us a lead on the location of that tome from Wyrmrest. We can't let those simpering Silver Covenant weaklings get it back to Icecrown before we do.
老大哈索瑞爾說要殺掉聯盟密探,還要搜屍,小弟即使千百個不願意也只好做了。果然,從密探的身上搜出白銀誓盟命令(Silver Covenant Orders),趕緊將這命令交給博學者哈索瑞爾。哈索瑞爾看了命令後眉頭一皺,因為龍眠之書的確在聯盟的一個秘法師身上,而他…快要離開達拉然了。
4.適當的偽裝(A Suitable Disguise)


Getting you inside the Silver Enclave will be tougher than it appears. Only those who possess Silver Covenant tabards are permitted entry to sanctuary. If we can get our hands on one, a simple enchantment will do the rest of the work.


On the balcony above Threads of Fate, you'll find Shandy Glossgleam. I've helped him a few times in the past, so he owes me a favor. He handles laundry for a wide variety of people in the city. Maybe he can find a way to 'lend' you a tabard for a while.
在命運織坊上方的露臺,桑迪正在處理一堆衣服。向桑迪報出老大哈索瑞爾的名號後,桑迪拿出三個箱子,讓玩家自己尋找。隨手拿起一件借來的外袍(Borrowed Tabard)後,回到哈索瑞爾身邊,讓老大施點魔法,騙過白銀領區外面那些人。
5.謁見秘法師(An Audience With The Arcanist)


I've placed an enchantment on the tabard that should allow you to slip past the Silver Enclave's defenses for a short period of time. You should have enough time to find your way up to the top level of the Silver Enclave and meet up with the Silver Covenant's man there, known as Arcanist Tybalin.


While disguised, obtain the copy of Ancient Dragonforged Blades that his men borrowed from Wyrmrest, and return the book to me.
外袍施了欺騙魔法,不過只能持續五分鐘。從蘋果樹枝右邊的門進入,右轉上樓梯,在徽章商人後邊的書架旁可以看到秘法師泰巴林。在談話後,成功地從泰巴林手上拿到上古龍鑄劍刃(Ancient Dragonforged Blades)後,趕緊藉機溜出白銀領區,把書和外袍交給哈索瑞爾。

6.回報米拉連恩.日炎(Return To Myralion Sunblaze)


We must get this book to Myralion Sunblade. Would you bring it to him? I cannot rely on anyone else to transport the book and you have proven adept at evading the Silver Covenant's men.


Take it with you to Quel'Delar's Rest, south of the Argent Tournament Grounds in Icecrown. Myralion will be waiting for you. If he can identify that blade, we may be able to claim it in the name of Aethas Sunreaver and show Dalaran and the Alliance that we will lead the charge against the Lich King.




7.重鑄劍刃(Reforging The Sword)


We cannot allow Quel'Delar to remain broken and disgraced. Take the remnants of the sword, along with the battered hilt you discovered, and venture into the Pit of Saron within Icecrown Citadel.


In the pit, the Lich King uses slaves to mine, process, and transform saronite ore. This infused saronite is what we will use to rebuild Quel'Delar.


You must gather bars of infused saronite and capture the forgemaster's hammer, then bring them to the forgemaster's anvil and reforge the sword.
米拉連恩將手中奎爾德拉的殘塊(Remnants of Quel'Delar)交給玩家,並要玩家重鑄劍刃。

玩家進入冰冠城塞的薩倫之淵後,要收集五個灌能薩鋼錠(Infused Saronite Bar),並擊敗擁有鍛造大師之錘(The Forgemaster's Hammer)的鍛造大師加弗羅斯(Forgemaster Garfrost),然後在巨大的熔爐旁鑄造出重鑄的奎爾德拉(Reforged Quel'Delar)。

8.淬鍊劍刃(Tempering The Blade)


At last, the pieces of Quel'Delar are rejoined and the blade is whole, but it cannot see battle until you have tempered it. That jagged saronite edge is brittle and will shatter the moment it strikes anything.


Deep in Icecrown Citadel's Forge of Souls is a place where the blade can safely be tempered. Take Quel'Delar with you to the abode of the Devourer of Souls and look for the crucible. Plunge the blade into the crucible to temper it and bring it back to me. I'll be waiting in The Frozen Halls.
聽到這消息,玩家們立刻動身,進入眾魂熔爐。在千辛萬苦,擊敗了眾多敵人後,終於完成了淬鍛的奎爾德拉(Tempered Quel'Delar)。

9.倒影大廳(The Halls Of Reflection)


You have re-forged and tempered the sword, yet it sits quietly in its sheath, little different from a mundane blade. You say the sword pulls you, as though it possesses a will?


Dare you bring it where it wishes to go? It is not right that the sword should be this silent and this insistent, yet I fear that if you do not take the sword to its destination, we will never learn why. Bear it with you to Icecrown Citadel's Halls of Reflection, but be on your guard. I will wait for you in The Frozen Halls.
一進入倒影大廳中,烏瑟出來警告玩家們,不要再進入了(誰理他!)。當玩家進入劍息之地(Sword's Rest),奎爾德拉自動從劍鞘中飛出來,並且開始攻擊!

10.前往太陽之井(Journey To The Sunwell)


Take Quel'Delar to the Sunwell as quickly as possible, <name>. Trust in Uther's words when he says that you will not always be able to control the blade while it is subject to the evil of the Lich King's influence. You must travel to the Isle of Quel'Danas, and there, seek entry to the Sunwell itself, where you can cleanse the sword.


The guardians will try to stop you from entering the Sunwell Plateau, but make yourself known to Halduron Brightwing, who will be inspecting the guards there.
11.薩洛瑞安·曦尋者(Thalorien Dawnseeker)


You are the one working with Myralion Sunblaze, arent you? I know of a way we can test the sword.


If you know the blade's history, you recall that it was borne by Thalorien Dawnseeker in defense of the Sunwell against the Scourge. He fell in what is now the Dead Scar, buying time for his men to make their own preparations. You will find his remains near the southern end of the Dead Scar on this isle. Visit them, and if his spirit gives you its blessing, I will allow you to enter the Sunwell.




12.淨化奎爾德拉(The Purification of Quel'Delar)


The Sunwell and the end of Quel'Delar's exile await, <name>.


You will find Lor'themar Theron, the regent of Quel'Thalas, and Grand Magister Rommath standing within. Be wary of them and do not allow them to entrap you in their political scheming.


Instead, remain focused on your task here. Immerse the reformed Quel'Delar in the Sunwell to complete its restoration, then show it to Myralio Sunblaze at Quel'Delar's Rest. Speak to a Warden of the Sunwell when you are ready to enter the Sunwell Plateau.



洛摩斯沒說啥,揮揮手讓守衛們退下,並且解除了玩家的冰凍。洛摩斯讓玩家將奎爾德拉浸泡在太陽之井中,消去了巫妖王的邪惡影響。玩家從太陽之井中拾取了復原的奎爾德拉(Restored Quel'Delar)後,阿瑞克要玩家穿越傳送門回到達拉然,並通知米拉連恩‧日炎,奎爾德拉的消息。
13-1.奪日者的勝利(A Victory For The Sunreavers)


At last, Quel'Delar is restored for the glory of the Sunreavers and the Horde! This is a blessing for our efforts against the Lich King.


Archmage Aethas Sunreaver, the leader of the Sunreavers, asked to see you after you returned from the Sunwell. Travel to the Violet Citadel in Dalaran as soon as you can, <name> and bring Quel'Delar with you. The archmage wishes to congratulate you personally!

13-2.奪日者的勝利(A Victory For The Sunreavers)


At last, Quel'Delar is restored for the glory of the Sunreavers!


All the Horde will celebrate you as a hero, <name>.

因為你是一個<Class>,劍刃似乎認為你缺乏劍術訓練,所以並沒有跟你產生連結。既然這樣,它的下一個主人會在哪裡呢? 這使我難掩失望之情,因為我希望他會是個傑出的辛多雷。讓我們尋求一下銀白十字軍的建議吧。到北邊的銀白聯賽場地,以白銀誓盟的名義把劍交給審判者瑪瑞爾‧真心。

As a <Class>, the sword seems to know you lack the training to wield it and hasn't bonded to you. Where, then, will its next master come from? I will not conceal my disappointment; I had hoped it would be a worthy sin'dorei. Let us seek the Argent Crusade's counsel. Go north to the Argent Tournament Grounds and present the sword to Justicar Mariel Trueheart on behalf of the Sunreavers.
