Thank you for checking out our guide on completing your Tempest Keep attunement! Located in western Netherstorm, Tempest Keep: The Eye is one of two raids released with Phase 2 of The Burning Crusade Classic. Spanning just four bosses long, The Eye is one of the shorter raids in The Burning Crusade, but don’t let that make you think it won’t be difficult! Before we can step foot inside, we’ll need to become attuned and the process is fairly lengthy, so, without further ado, let’s get going!
A Quick Note for Reference
This attunement process does require you to enter certain heroic dungeons, which means you will need certain faction reputations at Revered or higher. The heroic dungeons that you’ll visit:
- Heroic Shadow Labyrinth
- Heroic The Steamvault
- Heroic Shattered Halls
- Heroic Arcatraz
The factions required will be Lower City, Cenarion Expedition, Honor Hold/Thrallmar, and The Sha’tar.
The Hand of Gul’dan
- Pick up The Hand of Gul’dan:
- Next, we’ll head to Earthmender Torlok, located near the Deathforge in Shadowmoon Valley, to pick up the next quest, Enraged Spirits of Fire and Earth
- Place the Totem of Spirits on the ground next to Elementals BEFORE killing them in order to collect their souls for the quest(s). You can collect the souls necessary for Enraged Spirits of Fire and Earth, in addition to the two following quests yet to be picked up, Enraged Spirits of Water and Enraged Spirits of Air at this time.
- Following the successful completion and turn-in of the three quests, Earthmender Torlok will give you Oronok Torn-heart, sending you to the northern part of Shadowmoon Valley to find Oronok Torn-heart.

The Four Trials
The first task to accomplish is to visit Khadgar in Shattrath City and pick up The Tempest Key, which will have you speak with A’dal and pick up the Trials quest chain
This quest requires the player to enter The Shattered Halls on Heroic difficulty and complete it as quickly as possible as the main task here is to reach the Shattered Hand Executioner before he executes the prisoners. By successfully completing this task will have the executioner drop Unused Axe of the Executioner. Loot the axe and return to A’dal to turn in this quest and pick up the next one.
This quest requires the completion of two heroics, The Steamvault and Shadow Labyrinth. In The Steamvault on Heroic difficulty, we’ll want to ensure we defeat Warlord Kalithresh and loot Kalithresh’s Trident from him. Before or after you complete The Steamvault, we’ll need to defeat Murmur in Shadow Labyrinth on Heroic difficulty, and loot Murmur’s Essence from him. After both of these tasks are completed, return to A’dal to pick up the third trial.
This trial requires the player to enter and complete The Arcatraz on Heroic difficulty, ensuring they defeath Harbringer Skyriss. When Millhouse Manastorm is released from his cell, the group needs to ensure he does not die duuring the encounter. Once the boss is defeated, and you receive credit for saving Millhouse, return to A’dal and pick up the fourth and final trial.
