(The Lich King’s chill voice fills your mind once again.)

The Lich King: There is an ancient blade, lost in the echoes of time, that has the power we will need to bring our vengeance upon the Legion. It is known only as Apocalypse. It has recently resurfaced in the hands of the Dark Riders of Deadwind Pass. Little is known of them, and less of their whereabouts, only that they were last seen in a place called Manor Mismantle. Go there, (name). Find the Dark Riders, and take your new blade!



Quest Objectives

Start your search for Apocalypse at Manor Mistmantle in Duskwood.



The Lich King: The sanctum of the Dark Riders is hidden even to my sight, though many in Duskwood have given their lives to unearth it. I sense one such presence in Manor Mistmantle – a man strong in the Light. If he could be bent to your will, he may be the key you need.



New Objective: Convince Revil to help.


NOTE: Ride toward Aegwynn’s Tower — located at the center of Dalaran. Step into the circle to teleport into the Portrait Room. Take the portal to Karazhan. Then fly west to Manor Mistmantle in Duskwood.


Revil Kost: So you hunt the Dark Riders as well? Long have I searched for a way to rid Duskwood of their curse, but now it looks like I have become the hunted. Though we may share an immediate goal, the sins you bear plainly show me that I cannot aid your cause. The Light is not well served by taking power from evil only to give it to evil.

(The power would serve to defeat the Legion. You consider that an evil goal?)

Revil Kost: I will admit that the Legion is a great threat, but my duty is to the Light. I must stand vigilant against its enemies at all times, no matter how tire the situation appears.

(If we do not act, Sargeras will take this world. There will be no remnant of your Holy Light to follow. Where will your duty be then?

Revil Kost: The Light will not falter so long as the brave hold it in their heart. We have seen it guide the Legion’s defeat before, and we will see it again.

(You are wrong. I was at the Broken Shore. I saw the demons cut through our men, holy and unholy alike. If we cannot turn the tide now, we are all lost.)

Revil Kost: I hear the truth in your words, death knight. We may walk very different paths, but I can see you fight for the right cause.

Convince Revil to help: 1/1




Revil Kost: I am left with little choice, I cannot face another Dark Rider ambush alone, and you are obviously formidable. I will help you find your artifact, but only if you will allow me to return the others in their possession to their rightful place. Do we have a deal, death knight?
