For the ability, see [Apocalypse].

Apocalypse is the artifact used by unholy death knights in World of Warcraft: Legion.


This item is a quest reward from N Death knight [98] The Dark Riders.


Vampiric demons known as nathrezim forged this ancient sword, which brings with it violence, plagues, and death. Apocalypse soon earned a horrific reputation in the hands of a Tirisgarde mage who couldn't control its destructive energies. In time the sword was seized by the malevolent Dark Riders: servants of Medivh, the corrupted Guardian of Tirisfal. They hid the blade in the catacombs under his home, the tower of Karazhan.[1]
