Triangulation Point One
- Head east to Manaforge Ultris and use the Triangulation Device. Keep using it, following the arrow that appears, until you find the right destination.
- Once the objective is satisfied, head northwest to find Dealer Hazzin to turn the quest in.
- Accept the next quest.

How to Break Into the Arcatraz
This quest will send you to The Mechanar and The Botanica, both requiring a group and a flying mount to access.
Complete the next two steps in either order as you’ll need to do both to finish the quest.
- Get a group for The Mechanar. Fight your way through the dungeon and kill the final boss, Pathaleon the Calculator. Loot the Bottom Shard of the Arcatraz Key from his corpse.
- Get a group for The Botanica. Clear the dungeon and the final boss, Warp Splinter. Loot the Top Shard of the Arcatraz Key from its corpse.
- With both halves, head back to A’dal in Shattrath City to hand in quest and acquire the Key to the Arcatraz.
You can now access The Arcatraz. If you’d like, you can pick up the next quest that sends you into The Arcatraz: Harbinger of Doom, but it isn’t required.
