A quick guide to unlocking the Zskera Vaults in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight
In this short guide, I’ll walk you through how to unlock the Zskera Vaults in World of Warcraft. I’ll dive into all the details in a moment, but for now, here is a quick answer and overview of what I’ll walk through in this article.
To unlock the Zskera Vaults, you need to reach level 70 and complete a few introduction quests in the Forbidden Reach, starting with Hidden Legacies in Valdrakken. Once you progress far enough, you can pick up the Helping Hand and Claw quest from Scalecommander Viridia to start the unlock.
With the overview out of the way, let’s jump in and look at the requirements for Helping Hand and Claw.
How to get Helping Hand and Claw
Helping Hand and Claw has a few prerequisites you need to meet before you can pick it up. Unsurprisingly, the first requirement is to reach level 70, but I doubt that is where you are getting stuck.
To get Helping Hand and Claw and unlock the Zskera Vaults, you’ll need to start the Forbidden Reach quest line first. That chain begins with a quest that pops up automatically for level 70 characters called Hidden Legacies. Once you turn it in, you’ll get a follow-up that takes you to Forbidden Reach.
From there, all you need to do is complete the three quests that Scalecommander Viridia (/way 34.6, 57.7) gives you after arriving at Morqut Village.
In total, you’ll need to complete five quests to start unlocking the Zskera Vaults, including:
- Hidden Legacies
- Return to the Reach
- Wings of Mercy
- Stemming the Irontide
- An Eclectic Accord
Once you have completed that introduction sequence on your main character, you’ll be able to skip ahead and grab the Helping Hand and Claw immediately on your alts!
Unlocking the Zskera Vaults
Now that you have the first quest in the chain, it is time to start unlocking the Zskera Vaults. Once you have completed Helping Hand and Claw, you can pick up Exploring Our Past in Morqut Village.
That quest will take you to the entrance of the Zskera Vaults and allow you to speak to Pathfinder Jeb to enter the vaults. From there, pick up Zskera Vault: Az, and you are good to go!
To recap, you’ll want to grab these three quests to unlock the vaults:
- Helping Hand and Claw – Morqut Village
- Exploring Our Past – Morqut Village
- Zskera Vault: Az – Near Vault entrance
Zskera Vaults Location
The Zskera Vaults are located on the north side of Morqut Islet in the Forbidden Reach. For coordinate addon users, you can find the entrance at /way 29.2, 53.1.

Compared to some features in the past, the unlock for Zskera Vaults feels pretty quick which I appreciate. Once you reach max level, it shouldn’t take more than 10-15 minutes to unlock Zskera Vaults.
The thing that is likely to take a little longer is getting all the keys you need to open the doors in the vault. Luckily, I put together a guide for keys that you can check out here: 7 Ways to Get Zskera Vault Keys.
