We have an unexpected ally in this war, <name>, and we're going to need every advantage we can get to defeat the Burning Legion.

The Ebon Blade will serve as the Lich King's arm as long as the Scourge is confined to Northrend. In return for our assistance, our ally has offered to assist in obtaining powerful weapons for the strongest of our knights. Weapons powerful enough to end the Legion once and for all!

You are one of our best, <name>. I want you to decide which weapon you would like to seek out.


You will receive:

  • 1g 54s
  • 1,500 XP


Which weapon should we pursue first?


Excellent choice.

Gorelix the Fleshripper is a monstrous demon warrior. With his massive axe, the Maw of the Damned, he has devastated entire worlds in the name of the Legion.

Taking this powerful weapon from Gorelix will require treading directly into the heart of the Legion's assault on our world, but the power of the Maw is well worth the risk.

 [Maw of the Damned]



The legendary Frostmourne, even four years after its destruction within Icecrown Citadel, remains one of the most infamous weapons in all of Azeroth.

With a bit of necromantic power, the broken shards could be reforged into a set of runeblades that have the potential to be as powerful as their predecessor, if not surpass it entirely.

Blades of the Fallen Prince



An ancient blade crafted by the Nathrezim which spreads plague, death and violence in its wake, Apocalypse is a powerful tool of destruction.

The blade was wielded by the Tirisgarde before it fell into the hands of the Dark Riders. Now the only way to find it is to hunt down the riders to their secret lair.
