WoW Dragonflight: Keeping the Flame at Bay
Wow’s latest expansion, Dragonflight, received a patch update on Tuesday, 21 March 2023. The patch introduced several new features, including a new zone, numerous new quests, as well as new gear pieces to the game.
One of the quests introduced in the patch is Keeping the Flame at Bay. The quest’s official description reads as follows, “It’s not enough that Sarkareth kills our people, twists our heritage, and burns everything in his path. Now he seeks to pillage the creche of the Adamantine Village.”
Players can procure the quest from Scalecommander Emberthal, who can be found in the Forbidden Reach. To access this zone, your character has to be maximum level, which is level 70, and you need to own the Dragonflight expansion.
Emberthal asks you to push back the Sundered Flame in order to complete the quest. You have to slay 4 Sundered Pillagers, 6 Sundered Ruinstalkers, and Winglord Iyazael in the High Creche.
The High Creche comprises 2 buildings in Talonlords’ Perch and can be found southeast in the Forbidden Reach.
Once you reach the High Creche, you will find numerous enemies, however, you only need to defeat specific monsters. The table below lists the details of every enemy that you have to slay:

In addition to the currencies, you will receive 9500 experience points, and 250 reputation with Valdrakken Accord, Dark Talons, and Obsidian Warders respectively.
