What does this information mean?


You found a peculiar lamp on the shore of Pirate's Perch in the Sinking Sands and a seemingly mad djinn appeared. After some inquiry about how he became trapped in such a place, the djinn admits that it must kill you yet can allow you a choice on how. You must enter his gauntlet and defeat the trial to be set free.


  • A player entering here for the first time will be offered the quest, The Gauntlet of al-Azhar.
  • After zoning in, speak again to Khalhan al-Azhar to begin the trial and advance the quest.
  • This instance has no persistence or lockout and thus may be completed as many times as desired.
