Void-Touched Leather Gloves and Void-Touched Leather Gauntlets are two of the new craftable Epics added in Season of Discovery. These Gloves are likely to be the Best-in-Slot for Melee DPS and Casters respectively. To craft them you will need to complete a quest chain started by speaking to a corpse in Ashenvale and culminating by climbing the mountains surrounding Ravenholdt Manor.
You will need a handful of items during these quests, but you won’t need them all in one go. This means you could grab what you can get your hands on to start, and get the rest as needed.
The full list of items needed, in the order they are needed:
- Elixir of Coalesced Regret
- 40 Strange Dust
- 5 Greater Magic Essence
- 2 Small Glimmering Shard
- 5 Gold
- Toughened Leather Gloves
Along with this list, you will also need 100 Leatherworking, Tailoring, or Blacksmithing to start the chain.
Part 1: The Dead Twilight Cultist
The first step is to find the Tauren corpse near Zoram Strand in Ashenvale. Drink your Elixir of Coalesced Regret, allowing you to speak to the Dead Twilight Cultist and starting your quest to solve the mystery of his death. Progress through the dialogue steps until finally you receive this message:
Oh… I… feel… I’m slipping away now. The
darkness… danger… the beast… Serra’kis.
May be the… key.
This is the final step of the dialogue and allows you to trigger the next part of the quest.
Part 2: Serra’kis
Before you begin this part I recommend you clear Blackfathom Deeps. Once you have a lockout that has cleared all 7 bosses, come back a few hours after finishing the raid and all trash will have despawned, leaving you free to wander without worrying about pulling any leftover trash. You could also complete this part during the raid, and come back later for future parts.
Poor old Serra’kis is indeed the key. You can find the rotting corpse of the giant Thresher being slowly devoured by turtles in Ghamoo-Ra’s room within Blackfathom Deeps. Interact with the corpse to grab a Handful of Shifting Scales. As noted in the flavor text, you might want to find someone who knows something about them. Anyone who has completed the Glowing Shard quest from Wailing Caverns will know there is only one place to seek information, and that place is Ratchet.
Part 3: N’ora Anyheart, Scholar of Exotic Fauna
Visit N’ora Anyheart, in the Ratchet Inn. This scholar of exotic fauna will offer to fashion a talisman for you, harnessing the magical energy produced by Serra’kis scales, in exchange for some supplies, of course. You will need to bring her 40 Strange Dust, 5 Greater Magic Essence, 2 Small Glimmering Shards, and 5 Gold. All of which (except maybe the Gold) is produced by disenchanting items, so if you aren’t an Enchanter yourself, you will have to pay a visit to the Auction House.
Once you hand over the frankly extortionate shopping list, N’ora will give you the Shifting Scale Talisman, allowing you to survive the crushing darkness in the depths of Blackfathom.
Part 4: The Box
Equip your Shifting Scale Talisman, and head over to the room just before Twilight Lord Kelris. You can use the teleporter at the start of the dungeon to teleport to Gelihast, saving you some time. I hope you waited long enough for the trash to disappear from your raid lockout, otherwise you might be in trouble here.
Once you’re on the middle platform, dive into the water below. Swim underneath what would be Kelris’s room, continuing until you reach the end and find an Artisan’s Chest. Within the chest, you’ll find The Box. Head out before you drown, you can inspect The Box later!
Part 5: A Powerful Source of Light
Reading the Use: text on The Box clues you into where you need to go. Players partaking in the “Discovery” aspect of “Season of Discovery” may have stumbled upon either Brave Stonetorch in Tarren Mill or Ardelle Dralta in Southshore. Both of these new NPCs will speak of a “brilliant white stone that fell from the sky in the hills”. That stone is where we are headed.
Achievement Hunters and Rogues alike know Ravenholdt Manor all too well, and that is where we are headed. Head to 75, 24 in Hillsbrad Foothills, north of Durnholde Keep. Follow the path up, through the cave, and into Ravenholdt Manor. Cut across the courtyard, through the training circle, and back to the hills. Follow the winding path around the mountains. At times it may not even look like you are going the right way, but keep left and push ahead.
Eventually, you will see it, the light glowing in the distance. Walk up to it and use The Box in the water surrounding it. Destroying the box gives you a Shard of the Void, the key ingredient in any void-touched handwear.
Part 6: The Shadowy Figure
Once you cleanse The Box, a Shadowy Figure will appear behind you. Progress their dialogue up until the fourth page of dialogue, when you are offered two different dialogue options. If you select “I want nothing from you. Leave me be” you will not learn the recipes. Pressing “Fine, show me. If only to stop your prattling” will instead have your character learn the recipe for both Void-Touched Leather Gloves and Void-Touched Leather Gauntlets.
Combine your Toughened Leather Gloves with the Shard of the Void for your new Epic Gloves! If you somehow misplaced your Shard of the Void or would like to craft both variants, you can collect The Box again from Blackfathom Deeps, or visit Rix Xizzix in Booty Bay to reclaim a shard from the lost and found.
