For the Horde version of this quest, see H [80] The Source Revealed.

This quest appears as part of the Love is in the Air event.


Find Apothecary Staffron Lerent in the Hillsbrad Foothills behind Ravenholdt Manor.


What? Treason? No, no. I assure you, my intentions are completely harmless.

Is it so wrong to help those who wish to ease the painful ritual of courtship? Come, that is no crime.

And to prove I mean no harm, I will even tell you my source.

They were shipped to me by a Staffron Lerent, an apothecary of some sort. I never spoke with him.

Our goblin middle man said he worked in the foothills over Hillsbrad past that mysterious Ravenholdt Manor. I wish you luck in finding him.


Yes, I made those fragrances. Wonderful smell, isn't it? Irresistible.

Once the warriors of the Alliance and Horde alike are smitten with these feelings of love, they will be powerless to stop the rise of the Shadow Council.

They will be weakened, unprepared. As they worry for their loved ones, thy will lose their edge.

The solution was so simple. Why did it take me so long to come up with it? The weakness of all is through the heart. And there is nothing you can do to stop the inevitable.


Fly to Southshore. Run to IconSmall RaidStar.png[75.4, 23.3] north of Durnholde Keep. Follow the path up to the cave entrance at IconSmall RaidCircle.png[77.7, 19.6]. Take a right in front of Ravenholdt Manor and head south towards IconSmall RaidDiamond.png[84.3, 84.3] (now that you're in Alterac Mountains...) to see a path leading south. At IconSmall RaidTriangle.png[85.8, 26.0] take a left and head north. Back in Alterac Mountains yet again is Apothecary Staffron Lerent at Activequesticon.png[89.4, 74.7].

Post-quest dialog

This dialog happens between Apothecary Staffron Lerent and the ghost of his wife, Annalise Lerent, after completing this quest.

Annalise Lerent says: Staffron...
Apothecary Staffron Lerent says: Annalise? Is that you?
Annalise Lerent says: My dear Staffron, have you forgotten what it is to love? The love that we once shared?
Apothecary Staffron Lerent says: Have I forgotten? Of course I have... I have forgotten about love, happiness... of life itself.
Apothecary Staffron Lerent says: But I do know this - love makes the heart and body weak. It can be exploited. Without your love, I have only my work, Annalise.
Annalise Lerent says: But of course I love you, Staffron. And it pains me to see you suffer so.
Annalise Lerent says: I pledge my love to you forever. Death cannot erase that, even as I am sure that you still remember your love for me.
Annalise Lerent says: And if you do not, then I am truly lost.
Apothecary Staffron Lerent says: How could you love me Annalise? Look at me. I am not the man you once knew.
Apothecary Staffron Lerent says: Annalise? Annalise! No, don't leave me!
Apothecary Staffron Lerent says: Annalise... You're right. I-I can't do this. I must find another way.
Apothecary Staffron Lerent says: You there. You're welcome to take the contents of my cauldron. It was to be the second stage of my plan - amorous clothing.
