Guide on How To Properly Break Into The Arcatraz*
(*ARCATRAZ and not Alcatraz)
* I don't know the exact mobs that A/H get the quest from, they're in Area 52 so if you know the quest name it shouldn't be a problem
* I didn't sum up the gold amount because I'm lazy, the XP gain and reputation are approx. accurate. I hope.
1. Assisting the Consortium :
, a 'go talk to' quest (1200XP/72s)
2. Consortium Crystal Collection :
, kill a dreadlord called Pentatharon and get a crystal from him
3. A Heap of Ethereals :
, repeatable quest also for Consortium reputation.
1st chain ends here : 25800XP, 510 Consortium reputation OR around 15g at 70
4. Warp-Raider Nesaad :
, a go-kill-him quest.
5. Request for Assistance :
, find Gahruj at 47,57
6. Rightful Repossession :
, get 10 boxes from around Mana Forge: Duro
7. An Audience with the Prince :
, Nexus-Prince Haramad at 44,35 or so in the Stormspire.
8. Triangulation Point One :
, use the Triangulation Device at 66, 33
9. Triangulation Point Two :
, same thing at 28,41
10. Full Triangle :
, Find Culuthas at 53, 21, 70 Elite demon.
2nd chain ends here: 1600 Consortium reputation, 71450 XP or around 60 gold if you're 70.
11. Special Delivery to Shattrath :
, pretty obvious.
12. How To Break Into the Arcatraz :
, the Bottom Shard of the Arcatraz Key : Pathaleon the Calculator in The Mechanar and the Top Shard of the Arcatraz Key : Warp Splinter in The Botanica. Pretty obvious if you know where they're located, huh.
The quest chain doesn't stop here, there's also
13. Harbinger of Doom after :
After this 3rd quest chain, you get around 40g and your Key to the Arcatraz :
As it says its the key to the Arcatraz instance in Netherstorm.
I take it rogues can LP the door?
Prior message has to do with Step 8 of the above description.

How to Break Into the Arcatraz
This quest requires both the from Tempest Keep: The Mechanar the first wing and from Tempest Keep: Botanica the second wing. End result is the .
At this oint in time it seems bugged. I have stood directly under the " holographic indicator" 3 times, it then says in my quest log "Second Triangulation Point Discovered", I cross the bridge to Wind Trader Tuluman but he is white not yellow mark above his head and cannot take back Triangulation Device. Successfully did Point One and not doing anyhting differently here. I don't ssee anything to do differently in the Quest instructions. On the plus side the XP is pretty good at around 1500 per guy killed getting there, think I will go back again!
where is the quest for the key? And whats it called?
It starts at the quest I linked.
ok so it starts at the ethereal - does it require a certain amount of rep to get the quest? he only has the repeatable quest for the rep turn in drops.
do i really need to key to get in the intace or another person can use their key?
ive done both the chain quests ( Consortium Crystal Collection, and the one that ends in killing the elite demon for the gem.) and A'dal still isnt a quest giver. help someone pls =O
where can i see the whole quest chain? so I know where in it I am, and if i have get started with it..
The quest chain does start with the crystal collection from area 52 and sends you all over netherstorm. It is an 11 step quest, fairly easy solo maybe need help once or twice. To see the full chain go to
Hope this helps out some, and enjoy the quest, pretty easy for a key quest and good rewards plus loot from killing things.
Questgiver is at loc. 32.64 area 52
Actually, if you're a mage, you don't need a key at all... You can blink into and out of the instance!
