Secret of Azeroth Clues: Updated Daily

If you wish to participate in the Secrets of Azeroth all you have to do is Travel to Valdrakken from the 31st of August to the 13th of September and visit The Roasted Ram Inn. For the most part of the event, this is the place where you will get new clues. It is also marked on your map with a little horn icon for extra convenience! Solve the mysteries by following the clues every day to earn all of the aforementioned rewards, and potentially even more.

Clue 1: The Preservationist

Find Preservationist Kathos in The Roasted Ram Inn in Valdrakken. Accept his quest called “Preserving Rarities”. This will provide you with two clues that will help you to solve this mystery. However, if you don’t feel like going through this entire process, simply travel to the Valdrakken Treasury Hoard (the bank) and place a chalice on a pile of gold which can be found on the left side of the room. Clue solved!

Clue 2: Ceremonial Spear

After solving the first clue you will receive a Tuskarr Ceremonial Spear. Travel to Iskaara and talk with Elder Poa (12.4, 49.2) to learn that your next destination lies in Northrend. Travel to the south of Dragonblight and find Elder Ko’nani (48.0, 74.8). He, in turn, will provide you with a clue of where to go next.

If you wish to find it yourself you can use the Elder’s Drawing that you just received from Ko’nani. However, if you don’t feel like looking for it yourself, simply travel to the Borean Tundra. Your destination is located next to the Warsong Hold at 33.5, 58.3. Place the spear next to the statue and that’s that. Clue solved!

Clue 3: Thinking Cap

Yet again, travel to Valdrakken. There you will need to find and talk to Bobby Carlisle in the Roaster Ram Inn. He will provide you with a list of parts that you need to obtain in order to construct a Tricked-Out Thinking Cap.

However, it’s not as simple as going around asking for parts - you must provide something in return. And that something is food. Along with the list of parts for the cap, you will also receive a list of ingredients that you need to collect in order to cook food that part holders enjoy. This is getting quite convoluted, isn’t it?

What you need to do is:

  1. Travel to Timberstop Outpost in Ohn’ahran Plains (85.1, 23.4), find Agurahl the Butcher, and buy 5 Thunderspine Tenders from them.
  2. Next up, travel to Zaralek Cavern and find Sniktak in Loamm (54.1, 56.6). He sells Latticed Stinkhorn and we need 5 of them.
  3. Then, return to Valdrakken and find a dragon called Gorgonzormu at 29.2, 65.2. Purchase 5 pieces of Apexis Asiago and we are all done with our little shopping tour.
  4. Lastly, return to the Roasted Ram Inn and talk to Erugosa. Provide her with all the groceries and let her cook! Receive 10 Thunderspine Nests from her and give them to Clinkyclick Shatterboom in exchange for the first part of the cap - Thought Calculating Apparatus.

Next up is fishing! Well, kind of. Travel to the south of Valdrakken (45.7, 93.1) and kill Hungering Tyranha to loot Fresh Tyranha from it. Give it to Gryffin in Valdrakken (it can be found right next to the previous food recipient – Clinkyclick Shatterboom). Receive your well-earned Downy Helmet Liner from doing so. And with this, we now have two out of three parts. Only the final one left.

Yet again, travel to Roasted Ram in Valdrakken. There, in the corner of the room on the first floor, you can find an Odd Statue. Bow to it. Doing so will transport you to The Dragon’s Hoard bar. Talk to the barkeep about the tab of Shakey Flatlap. Cover his tab (you will need 346 gold for that). After that’s done visit Shakey personally in Valdrakken (38.9, 61.9), tell him the good news, and receive the last part you need – Crystal Ocular Lenses.

With all three parts collected click on the Thought Calculating Apparatus in your bag and receive a quest that will guide you to Fangli Hoot. He can be found near the barber shop in Valdrakken (26.7, 54.2). This will provide you with a new toy - Tricked-Out Thinking Cap!

Next up is a long and tedious journey that involves finding clues that lead to a satchel. For the sake of your convenience, we will skip all the steps as you can travel straight to the satchel ignoring the clues. Travel to 64.6, 53.7 and find the satchel near the waterfall. Clue solved!

Clue 4: An Inside Job

Find Bobby Carlisle at his usual place in The Roasted Ram Inn in Valdrakken and accept the “An Inside Job?” quest from him. From there, travel to the second floor of the very same inn and find a chest on the left side of the room, behind a bed. Loot the Maruuk Burial Banner from it.

Travel to the Emerald Enclave in Valdrakken (62.7, 73) and talk to "Appraiser" Sazsel Stickyfingers. Receive a quest called Preservationist Cleared and return the banner back to the chest where you got it initially. Finally, find the Fangli Hoot at (26.6, 54.3) and turn in the quest. Clue solved!

Clue 5: Torch of Pyrreth

Start this investigation by talking to Tithris in the well-familiar Roasted Ram Inn. Receive your next set of instructions and then travel all the way north to the Waking Shores. To the Life-Binder Observatory specifically. There, you will need to find and pull 3 hidden levers which are located at:

  • First Lever: 57.0, 25.5
  • Second Lever: 57.7, 23.8
  • Third Lever: 56.6, 20.3

After pulling all the levers find the only intact building in the area and in there you should be able to find a torch. Said torch is located inside a fireplace, on the left side. Return to Valdrakken and receive your Torch of Pyrreth toy!

Next up, accept a quest called The Torch of Pyrreth from Preservationist Kathos in Valdrakken and travel to the Ruby Enclave part of the city. Use your newfound toy there and reveal a chest in one of the buildings. Clue solved!

Clue 6: A Chilling Ascent

Talk to Bobby Carlisle again and receive The Clerk’s Notes from him. Then travel to Vakthros Tower (77.9, 32.1) in the Azure Span. Find an entrance to the tower and activate your trusty Torch of Pyrreth. Right next to the tower, there is a much smaller tower that you need to get close to with a torch in your hand in order to uncover a tablet (78.8, 32.4). Said tablet spawns every 3 to 5 minutes, so don’t panic if you don’t see it right away. After interacting with it return to Bobby in Valdrakken. Clue solved!

Clue 7: Idol of Ohn’ahra

Start at the Roasted Ram Inn as usual and talk to the Tithris there. Receive Preservationist's Dispatch Two from him and travel to Eternal Kurgans in Ohn’ahran Plains. There, you will need to find 3 braziers with your Torch of Pyrreth toy.
