How to complete Battered and Bruised in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

Blizzard had no idea how fitting the title of this quest would become.

World quests are all over the place in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, including Revendreth. One of them is called Battered and Bruised, which is appropriate, because that’s how you might feel when trying to complete this one. Turning in the quest can be as much of a chore as finding the items necessary to finish, so we’ll do our best to help you get the credit you need.

As this is a world quest, you’ll automatically accept it as you approach the area where it’s active on the map. You’ll need to pick up some chains from Collector Marissa, who will also take the souls you need for the other part of the quest. You can find her at 24.3, 38.6, and the chains are right beside her.

Now comes the “fun” part. You need to start killing a bunch of the enemies in the area, which include Blistering Inquisitors, Ashen Rampagers, and Feral Ritualists. With any luck, they will drop Neglected Souls, eight of which are needed to finish this world quest. Pick these up one at a time to avoid stacking too much of a debuff on yourself. This shouldn’t give you any trouble, but when turning them in, you may run into some problems.

For whatever reason, the game doesn’t always let you turn in the Neglected Souls you have picked up. If you’re experiencing this issue, make sure you’re out of combat. Get on a mount, grab another soul by looting it from a body, then head back to Collector Marissa (without entering combat again) to turn it in. If you’re playing a Druid, stay out of travel form when turning in the souls, as this can cause problems too.
