- "Watch your step, <race>. We of the Brotherhood of the Light are not as lenient as our brethren when it comes to meting justice to those that would do the world wrong. Woe unto those that would anger Korfax." - Commander Eligor Dawnbringer
- What is the Brotherhood of the Light? Well... We are all members of the Argent Crusade at the core - members of the Argent Crusade that aren't held in check by morals, guilt and useless human emotion.
- Alonsus Chapel, Stratholme
- "There are no emotions. There are no morals. There are no zealots. There is only the Brotherhood."
- "Here, in the very chapel where Uther the Lightbringer joined the Order of the Silver Hand, I, Korfax, Champion of the Light, will inspire fear into the fearless."
- "Nothing will curb my fury - not the Scarlet Crusade, not the Argent Dawn, not my brothers, not even you."
This is a fine mess we've gotten ourselves into. We're overdue to join up with our forces in Icecrown and now we're entangled in this debacle, stuck between the Scourge and the Drakkari.
I told the highlord it was a mistake to come here.
See what you can do to help out there.
Korfax is part of a scene wherein various NPCs unsuccessfully attempt to damage a chunk of saronite:
- Eitrigg says: Korfax, what can you tell from this saronite?
- Crusade Commander Korfax says: Saronite you say?
- Korfax walks over.
- Crusade Commander Korfax says: Never heard of it. Looks like pure evil.
- Crusade Commander Korfax says: Let's see how it holds up to the might of my axe!
- Korfax takes a few swings, but his reaper bounces right off.
- Crusade Commander Korfax says: What the? My reaper didn't even scratch it! That's the toughest ore I've ever seen!
What is the Brotherhood of the Light? Well... We are all members of the Argent Dawn at the core - members of the Argent Dawn that aren't held in check by morals, guild and useless human emotions. Consider us Scarlet Crusade minus the stupidity, lack of leadership, and blind zealotry.
Don't let the Scarlet Commander tell you otherwise.
And don't let Tyrosus know that I said that... it would be a terrible shame if I had to brutally maim him should a brawl break out.
Korfax, where can I find Dark Iron scraps?
Is this a serious question? You really don't know?
If you are the cowardly sort, afraid to get their hands too dirty, you will find Dark Iron scraps on the creatures in the Burning Steppes and Searing Gorge.
If you're the bloodthirsty adventuring type, the dungeons of Blackrock Spire and Blackrock Depths hold quite a large supply of the scraps.
