Wrath of the Lich King

The Shadow Vault was originally controlled by the Scourge, adventurers are given a chain of quests — started by either Thassarian onboard the Skybreaker or Koltira Deathweaver onboard the Orgrim's Hammer, the flying battleships that patrol the skies of Icecrown — adventurers work with the Ebon Blade in taking it as a base. Once the chain is complete the Ebon Blade would have taken the Shadow Vault, in which it is constantly being attacked by the Scourge.

Once in Ebon Blade hands, the Shadow Vault will have all of the amenities of an inn: An innkeeper, vendors for general goods, trade supplies and food. There are also runeforges for death knights, a flight path, and the quartermaster for the Knights of the Ebon Blade. The Shadow Vault's quests focus on taking out Jotunheim, a Vrykul town in which the vrykul engage in combat to be ascended to Ymirjar aswell as the nearby scourge saronite mine, the Weeping Quarry.
