Fencing the Goods (Alliance)
120 (Requires 10)
Follow the spiders to their destination and question the man you find there.
- Follow Thief's Trail
A quick search of the cabin reveals no evidence of the killer's identity or motives. The crate you were sent to retrieve has vanished.
As you turn to leave the cabin, you notice something small moving underfoot. A trail of spiders crawls out from under the slain courier's bed. Where could they be heading?
Why are you still pestering me?
Keep your voice down and don't let word of this get out or I'm finished as an auctioneer!
Has anyone suspicious tried to list a crate of goods recently?
- Auctioneer Fitch says: Look, in my business, discretion is important. I shouldn't be talking about this at all.
- Auctioneer Fitch says: The person you described was just here and he tried to persuade me to list a crateful of arcane objects.
- Auctioneer Fitch says: Naturally, I told him that we don't deal in stolen goods. This is the Stormwind auction house, not some smoke-filled, back alley swapmeet!
This quest may have been inspired by Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. In the scene where Rubeus Hagrid is arrested on suspicion of opening the Chamber of Secrets, as he is led away he proclaims to Harry Potter and Ronald Weasley (who are hiding under the invisibility cloak) that they should "follow the spiders" to get some of the answers they seek.
- Patch 4.2.0 (2011-06-28): Added.
