Tempest Keep: The Eye Attunement

tempest keep the eye attunement process

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.

Attunement Process

The Hand of Gul’dan

First Fragment of the Cipher of Damnation

Second Fragment of the Cipher of Damnation

Third Fragment of the Cipher of Damnation

The Cipher of Damnation

  • Once you return to Oronok Torn-heart, you will be able to pick up The Cipher of Damnation, the final component in this chain. This quest sees you having to defeat another elite enemy, so a group is recommended
  • Use The Cipher of Damnation to summon Cyrukh the Firelord and defeat him
  • Once you successfully complete this quest you will receive Letter from Shattrath in your mail. This item allows you to continue onto the next part of the process to become attuned to Tempest Keep

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

Trial of the Naaru: Mercy

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.

Trial of the Naaru: Strength

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.

Trial of the Naaru: Tenacity

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.

Trial of the Naaru: Magtheridon

This trial requires the player to enter Magtheridon’s Lair and defeat him. Once you have successfully defeated Magtheridon, return to A’dal to receive both Phoenix-Fire Band and The Tempest Key!
