How do you start the quest The Thunder Forge?

My server has unlocked all the stages of the Isle of Thunder.

    Are you playing on a private server, or on Blizzard's official servers? In case of a private server: there's nothing we can do to help, as private servers tend to have quest breaking bugs that do not officially exist, in which case this question may be closed as Too localized, since a private server bug may apply to one private server, but not necessarily to others, or the solution to that bug may be different, depending on the private server you're playing at.

    The Isle of Thunder is in fact gated, and the Thunder Forge needed to be unlocked by server, so he's probably not talking about a private server. Although, I don't really see what the problem is.

    @deutschZuid No, Island is gated and if you haven't played the game don't post comments which might lead to downvoting legimite questions.

The quest in question is a part of legendary quest chain. To unlock it, you have to do all quest prior to "The Tunder Forge".

To start legendary quest chain you have to be level 90 and start quest "Stranger in a Stramge Land". After it, you simple have to follow all the quests in the chain which will eventually lead to The Tunder Forge.

If you have already done some quests in the chain, check your Quest Log. Quests which are part of legendary chain will be marked as < legendary > in a Quest Log. If you have none of them, visit Wrathion located in the Tavern in the Mists.

If you are sure you done everything what was asked from you, but you still can't access the quest, simply contact Game Master via in built Customer Suport (red question mark on your micro bar).

From your own link: talk to Wrathion in his whelp form at the Thunder Forge. If you can't find him, do a /tar Wrathion and look for his position on the mini map once you target him.
