Revil Kost: In my previous confrontation with your foe, I was able to see a glimpse into their past. Granted blessed vision by the Cloak of Purity, I saw the Dark Riders for who they once were.

Come, we must go to Ariden’s Camp in Deadwind Pass. I can explain its significance along the way.

Following the Curse


Quest Objectives

Escort Revil Kost from Manor Mistmantle in Duskwood to Ariden’s camp in Deadwind Pass.



Location: Manor Mistmantle (Duskwood)

Revil Kost: It seems you’ve been followed, druid! Dark Riders!

Dark Rider: None will be spared!

Following the Curse


Revil Kost: The battle is won, but there will be more. Quickly, to Ariden’s Camp!

Revil Kost: Try to keep up, druid!


Location: Beggar’s Haunt (Duskwood)

Revil Kost: The Dark Riders were not always like this. They were once a traveling group of merchants. Unfortunately, they crossed the sorcerer Medivh, and have been cursed to hunt artifacts for him for eternity.

Revil Kost: Look out behind you!

Dark Rider: We will take what is ours!

Following the Curse


Revil Kost: Your skill in combat is impressive. We may yet survive this. Try to keep up, druid!


Discovered: Deadwind Pass

Revil Kost: Ariden was the first of the Dark Riders, and I believe he leads them now. Do you wish to be left behind? Hurry!


Discovered: Deadman’s Crossing (Deadwind Pass)

Revil Kost: His camp is still in Deadwind Pass, strangely untouched after all these years.

Revil Kost: If my convictions are correct, the key to finding the Dark Riders, as well as the artifacts they still covet, can be found there.

Revil Kost: Riders on our flank! On your guard!

Dark Rider: The artifact calls to us!



Revil Kost: Let us press on. We are nearly there. Try to keep up, druid!


Location: Ariden’s Camp (Deadwind Pass)

Revil Kost: Here! The camp is in this clearing. Let us search it and see what we can find.

Follow Revil to Ariden’s Camp: 1/1



Revil Kost: It’s strange that the Dark Riders haven’t followed us here, but I will take whatever boon I can get. I believe the key to finding the Dark Riders is here somewhere. Let us begin our search.

Lore Reference

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.
