      A large AoE around you which does a lot of damage and instantly kills the lesser undead.
      Ability 3: Reconstruction – 
      A self-heal to full.

  5. Kill Urgreth of the Thousand Tombs – Keep a lookout for Urgeth’s emote, Urgeth begins to emanate a powerful dark energy! When he does, run away since you will instantly die if you’re near him. Take the opportunity to Reconstruction and Titanic Surge while he’s running back to you. As usual, spam Colossal Strike and Cataclysm.
  6. Kill Hailscorn – Just spam Colossal Strike, and save Cataclysm for when Hailscorn emotes: Hailscorn calls forth an army of frozen corpses. Cataclysm to kill all the adds he spawns. Rinse and repeat.
  7. Once you’ve finished killing 200 Lesser Undead, fly southwest to Freya and turn in Reclamation.

Kill Artruis the Heartless – at 30%, he becomes immune to attack and you then must kill either the Gorloc or Wolvar. Whoever you don’t kill you become friendly with their faction, and whoever you kill you become enemies of that faction. Don’t worry too much about this decision, since you can change factions at any time from the same daily.

    Complete the quest at Artruis’s Phylactery as well as the follow-up quest to either the Gorloc or Wolvar.

    Then, Hearth to Dalaran.
