    Anyone Remember the Obsession with Ashbringer?

    Like it was discoverable but extremely hard in the game. Remember back in vanilla there were all of these hints being dropped but led to nowhere, or people had to wait. I think there was something about it being in Dire Maul or the prince knowing its location. Then something about fishing it up lol.

    Then all of a sudden, The Argent Crusade retrieved it. Would have been nice to know how Tirion got his hands on it?

    There was even a website dedicated to collect all sort of remote evidences in order to unearth the Ashbringer, I remember it well, I played my Paladin zealously at the time, and the Scarlet Crusade has always been one of my favourite factions.
    It ain’t wise to poke a warrior so much, sonny. We just might poke ya back.

    Well, if I remember, the Ashbringer was finally a loot in the original Naxx from the 4 horseman (since 1 of them was Mongraim himself). But you can only get a corrupted version of it. After, if you do the first quest of the DK, you will see that the corrupted weapon get into the hand of is son and this last lost when he give it to Tirion (witch cleanse the weapon in the process).

    idd as i recall the true wielder of the ashbringer was 1 of the 4 horsemen in the original naxxramas.
    after he got killed the weapon ended up with his son but was already corrupted beyond repair.
    while holding the weapon you would get a nice cutscene in the cathidral and the undead priest would explain some.

    still because paladins are like superman the somehow can cleanse a utterly cursed and corrupted weapon by just catching it.
    there also great at getting CCed at jumping out of the CC just before a boss dies.
    then the pop all Cd's and claim the defeated the boss solo.

    Indeed, yet Quel'Delar needs to be taken to the SUNWELL ITSELF (remember it emanates holy magic now) in order to be cleansed from the saronite taint.

    Tirion got it from Darion Mograine at the Battle of Light's Hope Chapel. Darion passed it to him and Tirion cleansed it. Darion got it from his father, Alexandros, when he killed him in Naxx. Darion turned the blade on himself to free his father's soul and became a Death Knight of Lich King after.

    The ground beneath Light's Hope was so sacred that the Lich King himself was defeated there. I'd say that's a pretty good way to cleanse it. It could also be noted that Quel'Delar is a Sin'dorei blade and the Sunwell is a sacred Sin'dorei spot while Ashbringer is a human made blade and Light's Hope is a sacred Human place.

    Saronite was old god taint stronger than the scrouge taint which was fel in origin, not surprised you needed a stronger fount of power. But most likely it was an oversight by lore devoplers

    Oh yes! I remember the NPC just outside of light's hope that mentioned Ashbringer. And a rumor you had to fish up something in the lake near scholomance.

    There where all kinds of rumors.

    Quel'delar is a Quel'dorei blade, not Sin'dorei. It was forged for the Quel'dorei while Quel'serrar was forged for the Kal'dorei.

    Tomato, Tomahto (i know you're stance on helves and belves, so no need to argue my quip). My point was elvish blade cleansed in an elvish fashion, human blade in a human fashion. it's not even something concrete, just something I noticed.

    Considering they are in all senses, but political, the same people, it's not much of a serious innacuracy.

    (Alexandros) Morgraine had it. Then he was killed by his son and 39 other champions of the Argent Dawn (Original Naxx). His son (Darion) then killed himself with the Corrupted Ashbringer in order to free his father's soul.

    That's when Darion became a DK and went on to lead the Ebon Blade.

    In the finale of the DK starting zone, he throws the Corrupted Ashbringer to Tirion in order to help him fight the Lich King. Tirion + "The Light of Dawn" = Purified Ashbringer.

    It is then transported to Northrend, where Alliance players in Howling Fjord help retrieve it.
    You don't create "justice" by destroying. That includes buildings, cars, or the careers of the people you want "justice" for.

    Of course, Ashbringer was forged by a dwarf (Magni, even, see the comic).

    So not *technically* a human blade.

    Yeah wow I can't believe I let that slip past me. Haven't paid attention to the lore for so long...

    Thanks! Was so obvious.

    I certainly saw some obsession with it... but did it become a viral trade chat link like [Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker]?
