Following the Oracle's advice, you traveled through The Maj'Elkan Catacombs to reach The Waystation Complex and the artificial waypoint hidden within. After finding the artificial waypoint, you were ambushed by Spymaster Zerrick, and though you defeated him, he will not be down for long. In the midst of the battle, the artificial waypoint was damaged. Alric arrives and, after inspecting it, tells you to trust him and use the artificial waypoint.
The portal brought you to the unfinished site of another artificial waypoint just below The Immortal Citadel in the mountains ahead. You must now continue to The Immortal Citadel and face the Emperor.
