Deathcharger's Reins summons the Epic mount Rivendare's Deathcharger.
When Baron Rivendare became a champion of the Scourge, he condemned his favorite horse to join him in undeath.
After the Baron's defeat in Naxxramas, Deathcharger's saddle was returned to Stratholme. The Deathlord of the Knights of the Ebon Blade sent champions on behalf of Salanar the Horseman to retrieve it, in order to create new steeds for the order's Four Horsemen. The ghost Vivian's Lament was the major obstacle to this goal.
