N’Zoth’s corruption is spreading across Azeroth, but with the legendary cloak— Ashjra’kamas, Shroud of Resolve—you can save your sanity and fight against the darkness. If you haven’t gotten yours yet, we’ve put together a simple step-by-step guide to help.
- Accept the starting quest “Return of the Black Prince” (Horde) or “An Unwelcome Advisor” (Alliance). You should receive this quest automatically if you meet the criteria.*
- Meet with Magni in the Chamber of Heart to continue the introductory quest line.
- Go with Magni into the Halls of Origination in Uldum and complete the challenge that awaits.
- Meet with King Phaoris in Ramkahen and complete an Assault in Uldum.
- Meet with Magni Bronzebeard in the Chamber of Heart and then speak with Wrathion about your new corrupt item to as a part of the quest Curious Corruption.
- Speak with MOTHER about your corrupt item to unlock Titanic Purification. While this unlocks the ability to cleanse an item, don’t cleanse your item now.**
- Meet Magni outside Mogu’shan Vaults in Kun-Lai Summit.
- Journey to the Seat of Knowledge in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms to speak with Lorewalker Cho.
- Go to Mistfall Village to meet with the Rajani and complete the Assault on the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.
- Go with Magni into the Engine of Nalak’sha in Vale of Eternal Blossoms, and face the challenge that awaits. (if you’ve completed this step on another character you can skip the Engine of Nalak’sha scenario by speaking to Ra-den.)
- Return to the Chamber of Heart with Ra-den. (He can take you directly there if you speak to him again.)
- Speak with Magni to complete the next series of quests in the Chamber of Heart then join him again in the Halls of Origination in Uldum to face a vision of what’s to come...
- Talk with Wrathion in the Chamber of Heart to undertake the quest “Beginning the Descent.”
- Enter Blackwing Descent at the top of Blackwing Mountain in the Burning Steppes and face the challenges that await to claim a corrupted prize.
- Return to the Chamber of Heart and speak with Wrathion to complete the quest and receive your new legendary cloak—Ashjra’kamas, Shroud of Resolve.
Once you’ve received your cloak, make sure you put it on before embarking on your next quest which sends you back into the Halls of Origination, and ultimately unlocks access to Horrific Visions. These cost one Vessel of Horrific Visions to enter, and allow you to earn higher ranks for your new cloak . Each rank provides greater benefits, including higher stats, improved protection against sanity loss in Visions, and resistance to the dangerous negative effects of Corrupted gear.
Horrific Visions can be done solo or with a group. If you’d like to team up to take one on, simply open the Group Finder (I) to find a group of like-minded adventurers to join you.

*If you do not see this quest, make sure you meet the following requirements: level 120, Nazjatar unlocked and introduction experience complete through to “A Way Home”, Heart Forge activated, and Essences unlocked in the Heart of Azeroth.
**Beware, cleansing an item will remove all Corruption from that item, but will also remove the additional postivie bonus effects gained from that item. You can learn more in Wowhead’s Corruption System Overview.
