Answer
 

Well, that was a bit more challenging now wasn’t it?

 

The correct answer was Hellfire Citadel: The Shattered Halls. Let’s find out what our clues meant:

 

Clue 1: This clue had a few hidden meanings, as well as a more obvious face meaning. “The path of the race that has bled” refers to two different sets of people. The first meaning is referencing the Path of Glory, a road that leads from the Dark Portal to the foot of Hellfire Citadel. This path is made up of the bones of the Draenei that were slaughtered by the orcs during the genocide that occurred. It also references the orcs found within the Shattered Halls; the Shattered Hand clan are known for following their leader’s example and cutting off one of their hands, replacing it with a blade.

 

The second half of the clue references the two different styles of the building in Draenor and Outland, with one appearing greener, and the other appearing red.

 

Clue 2: The first part of the clue does indeed reference the two buildings in Draenor and Outland, but the second half actually tells you which one it is.

 

“In only one shall you find the head” refers to the fact that you will be tasked to recover the head of Magtheridon, in the basement of Hellfire Citadel in Outland. It also references the dungeon itself, referencing the idea that the “head” of the Shattered Hand, as well as the “head” of the True Horde, Kargath Bladefist, resides within the dungeon.

 

Clue 3: This is a bit of an odd one! In the dungeon, there is a section where a door blocks your way and you need to go through the sewers. You can, in fact, bring an engineer and completely avoid the sewers by destroying the door.

 

Clue 4: Out of the 3 dungeons in HFC, only one of them is locked behind a gate. The lever is used to open the door to Shattered Halls.
