  • Rethban Ore
  • Sell Price: 25c

Rethban Ore was an item used for the Alliance quest  [Rethban Ore]. It was named after Bart Rethban, who discovered the ore and presumably the cavern it resided in.[1]

It was found in caves northwest of Lakeshire in the Redridge Mountains called the Rethban Caverns. Though the gnolls were previously mining the ore, they are now too preoccupied in controlling the Ettins plaguing Redridge Mountains.[2] Though the ore was not as strong as iron, it was used by some scribes in their dyes; Brother Paxton, for example, had his own recipe using Rethban Ore he used for inking his own books.[3]


The item dropped from Redridge Drudgers as well as from the various tin veins that dotted the cavern.

As a quest objective

This item was a quest objective for A [24] Rethban Ore.


  • Unlike many other quest items, it was lootable by players not even on the quest. This also meant it was able to be put on the Auction House.
