Maw of the Damned is the artifact used by blood death knights in World of Warcraft: Legion.


This item is a quest reward from B Death knight [100 - 110] The Dead and the Damned.


An ancient Legion axe forged from a metal that drains its victims' vital energies. The soul of its original creator is trapped within and cursed with unending hunger. For more than a thousand years, an old and cunning mo'arg has used the axe to butcher uprisings and consume the life force of the Legion's foes. Over its long and infamous history, the weapon has made its demonic bearer extraordinarily powerful.[1]

From the official Legion site:

For eons, the demon known as Gorelix the Fleshripper used this massive axe to steal the life force of his enemies and replenish his own. The Maw will bleed dry anything it touches—eating is all it knows.


  • The Maw of the Damned begins to tug at your grip as you approach the Deceiver.
  • Spirit of Netrezaar whispers: At long last! Revenge... revenge is mine! (Kil'jaeden's death)
