Blackhand's Command (quest)
|The subject of this article was removed from World of Warcraft but is present in World of Warcraft: Classic.
60 (Requires 55)
Blackwing Lair attunement
Blackhand's Command is started from an item of the same name, which is dropped by the Scarshield Quartermaster located to the east of the entrance to Blackrock Spire in Blackrock Mountain. To complete this quest, complete Upper Blackrock Spire and use Drakkisath's Brand, located behind the wall where General Drakkisath stood.
That is one stupid orc. It would appear as if you need to find this brand and gain the Mark of Drakkisath in order to access the Orb of Command.
The letter indicates that General Drakkisath guards the brand. Perhaps you should investigate.
I hold very little faith in your ability to prevent outsiders from accessing the master's lair. In the very likely event of your death, this orb has its own failsafe built in to prevent outsiders from teleporting directly into Blackwing.
Only those with the Mark of Drakkisath branded upon their hand may make use of this orb. Thankfully, Drakkisath is not nearly as incompetent as you, Quartermaster. He guards the brand himself!
P.S. Destroy this letter, idiot.
Upon completion of this quest you will gain:
- 6600 XP (or 39 at level 70)
You don't even flinch as the smoldering brand is pressed into your flesh. You are so tough!
You now hold the Mark of Drakkisath. Have fun storming the castle.
- In Warlords of Draenor, the quest could still be obtained, but it could not be completed until later patches removed the item entirely.
- The line "Have fun storming the castle" is from the movie The Princess Bride.
- Patch 1.6.0 (2005-07-12): Added.
