With the release of Patch 10.0.7 in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight, players can now explore the enigmatic Zskera Vaults. These Vaults are not only a source of intriguing challenges but also provide valuable loot like the Onyx Annulet and Primordial Stones. This guide will walk you through the steps needed to unlock Zskera Vaults and make the most of your adventures.
Requirements to Unlock Zskera Vault
Before you can unlock Zskera Vaults, you must have a max-level character in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. These Vaults are endgame content and will be the main source of Primordial Stones, which are essential for enhancing the Onyx Annulet—a powerful item reminiscent of the Borrowed Power system.
Complete the Forbidden Reach Quest Line
To begin unlocking the Zskera Vaults, you must first complete the Forbidden Reach quest line. This series of quests starts in Valdrakked, where you need to talk to Kazra at the Seat of the Aspects. Progress through the quest line until you reach the “Exploring Our Past” quest.
Unlock the Zskera Vault: Az Quest
After completing “Exploring Our Past,” you will unlock a follow-up quest called “Zskera Vault: Az.” This quest will task you with entering a Zskera Vault for the first time, serving as an introduction to this new endgame content.
Accessing the Zskera Vaults
Once you have completed the “Zskera Vault: Az” quest, you will gain access to Zskera Vaults. To enter, speak with Pathfinder Jeb on Morqut Islet at coordinates 29, 53. From there, you can dive into the exciting challenges and rewards that await you within the Zskera Vaults.
Claim Your Rewards
The primary rewards from Zskera Vaults are the coveted Onyx Annulet and Primordial Stones. However, you may also come across various toys and pets during your explorations, including:
- Holoviewer: The Lady of Dreams
- Holoviewer: The Scarlet Queen
- Holoviewer: The Timeless One
- Gilded Mechafrog
Where to Find Zskera Keys in Dragonflight
After making your way through the main questline leading to the Forbidden Reach, you’ll encounter Pathfinder Tacha, who has a special quest in store. Upon completion, you’ll receive your first set of six Zskera Vault Keys at no cost. These keys grant you access to the Zskera Vaults, where you can explore various rooms and collect Primordial Stones and other valuable items.
To obtain additional Zskera Vault Keys, you can participate in world events within the Forbidden Reach. The most effective methods for acquiring keys include:
- Hunting Rare Elite mobs: These powerful adversaries have a chance to drop Zskera Vault Keys upon defeat in WoW Dragonflight.
- Completing Primal Storms: Engaging in these dynamic events in the region can also reward you with keys.
It’s important to remember that Zskera Vault Keys are account-wide, meaning they can be used by multiple characters on your account. This allows you to use alternate characters to gather keys for your main character. However, keep in mind that the Zskera Vault operates on a weekly, character-specific lockout, which restricts the number of times you can run this instance on each character.
