Belysra Starbreeze: I cannot believe the Dark Riders found us here. Long have they hunted the scythe to sate their lust for the artifacts of Azeroth. We thought we would be protected within the grove…

And no, valorn is gone…

You must become the hunter, (name). Seek the Dark Riders and recover the scythe. We last encountered them near Manor Mistmantle in Duskwood. Start your search there.

And (name)… bring justice to Valorn. The rider must pay.

A Foe of the Dark


Quest Objectives

Start your research for the Scythe of Elune at Manor Mistmantle in Duskwood.



Revil Kost: First the Nightbane are driven mad, and now a druid comes to investigate Manor Mistmantle? This must mean the Scythe of Elune has returned to Duskwood, and the Dark Riders cannot be far behind. Tell me what you seek, druid, and I may be of assistance.

A Foe of the Dark



Revil Kost: So I was correct, and the Scythe is your quarry. Know that in order to retrieve it, we must do what no denizen of Duskwood has ever attempted.

We must hunt the Dark Riders.

I have been tracking them for some time since my encounter with them while hunting down the Wolf Cult. They are a blight upon these lands, and they hold no right to the artifacts they hoard.

If we wish to recover this artifact, we will need to find their lair. Fortunately, I may just have the clue we need.


Lore Backstory

Revil Kost hails from the pages of World of Warcraft: The Dark Riders graphic novel. Learn more at Wowpedia, but debuted in the last issue of the DC Comics World of Warcraft comic book.
