As part of the Kyrian covenant storyline in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, you’ll need to complete a quest called Succumbing to Pride. Kleia tells you to stop the Forsworn and free the aspirants, which is a fancy way of telling you to look for a specific enemy.

You’re looking for a Burdened Aspirant, which you will spot in the Temple of Humility, directly behind you when you face Kleia. Free the Burdened Aspirant by clicking on the enemy channeling them, and you will stop the ritual. You need to do this five times before you can turn in the quest and continue the storyline.

The trouble with this quest is twofold. First, the spawn rate for the enemies here is extremely low, even by WoW standards. Don’t be surprised if you’re waiting for five minutes or more before you’re able to free another Burdened Aspirant. To make matters worse, world quests have a habit of appearing over this area, which will bring crowds into the zone that mindlessly slaughter everything, including your target.

The only way you can ensure you finish this quest, until someone at Blizzard decides to modify things, is with patience. It’s never a bad time to check on some other things while you’re sitting and waiting for more rituals to begin.
