For the last quest before the final event, on WoW Secrets of Azeroth Day 13, players are set to climb a difficult road to reach Stormshroud Peak, tasked with assembling a peculiar orb that promises to unveil its secrets.
If you’ve been out of the loop in World of Warcraft, you might have missed the buzz surrounding this community-driven secret-hunting quest, spanning from August 31 to September 13. Each passing day ushered in a fresh mystery, accompanied by cunning solutions and a united community working fervently towards a common goal.
Today, on WoW Secrets of Azeroth Day 13, we’ll scale the heights of Stormshroud Peak and delve into the quest for the enigmatic ‘Curious Orb’.
WoW Secrets of Azeroth Day 13: A Curious Orb quest
Prepare for an uphill climb, because Stormshroud Peak is no walk in the park.
To kickstart the quest for the Curious Orb, venture to the Thaldrazus region and make your way to Stormshroud Peak. For those uncertain about its whereabouts, head southeast from the dragon capital and southwest from Tyrhold. Inside three distinct caves within the peak, concealed tablets await revelation through the adept use of the Torch of Pyrreth. This unveiling will, in turn, grant access to three heaps of soil. These seemingly mundane pieces are the building blocks of our mysterious ‘Curious Orb’—the Orb of Rathmus, which you’ll eventually return with to the inn.
Navigating the caves
To aid in your quest, here are the coordinates for each cave, along with the corresponding orbs:
- Tablet 1: Coordinates #2025 50.2 81.0
- Orb 1: Coordinates #2025 49.5 79.7
- Tablet 2: Coordinates #2025 46.6 77.6
- Orb 2: Coordinates #2025 45.9 79.7
- Tablet 3: Coordinates #2025 48.7 76.4
- Orb 3: Coordinates #2025 50.2 78.0
With the mystery of Stormshroud Peak and the Curious Orb unraveled, we edge closer to the climax of the Secrets of Azeroth event. Join us tomorrow for the grand finale of this treasure hunt extravaganza! However, there have been hundreds of reports that the Curious Orb quest is bugged, therefore let’s take a final moment to check out these reports.
Reports of the A Curious Orb quest bug
Dubbed ‘A Curious Orb,’ observant players have noticed that this quest seems to have been bypassed. Consequently, this hiccup is now causing complications with the event’s final quest, ‘Under Suspicion.’ Once you accept ‘A Complete Inventory,’ it oddly registers as complete right away, expecting you to turn it in immediately. If not, the quest glitches out and becomes unfinishable.
Opting to abandon the quest presents another challenge. The item you receive, the Compiled Report, becomes intertwined with your character, preventing you from retaking the quest.
“I abandoned this quest and the item, Compiled Report, would not let me take the quest again as it stated I didn’t meet the requirements,” lamented one fan on the official WoW forums. “Deleting the Compiled Report also does not allow me to get the quest again, and neither does actually solving the clues, so I’m completely unable to complete it now.”
This cry for help has resonated with numerous players who’ve faced the same frustrating ordeal. It seems the best course of action is to simply turn it in and move on. The only thing you’ll be missing out on is a search quest.
As WoW Secrets of Azeroth Day 13 progresses, we’re crossing our fingers for a speedy patch on this matter. After all, what’s a murder mystery quest without a bit of actual investigation, right?
