Halls of Origination

Introduced in Cataclysm

Constructed by the great titans, the Halls of Origination are filled with ancient relics and the fearsome guardians that protect them. Rumors abound that the complex also contains a devastating weapon capable of reordering all life on Azeroth. Deathwing has moved to obtain this terrifying device through his agent, Al'Akir the Windlord. Thus far the facility's communication systems have been fully corrupted, but the weapon inside continues to elude Deathwing's grasp.

The sand-filled pyramid is an archaeologist's delight, filled with relics of an earlier age and the fearsome automated defenses that protect them. But a greater treasure is rumored to lie hidden deep within the halls - a secret that could endanger all life on Azeroth.

The armies threatening Uldum know of this secret, and they hope to use it as a weapon. Finding, entering and protecting the Halls of Origination is no longer a matter of academic interest.
