Shadowmourne Questline Extra Rewards
If you read this site regularly, and I'm sure that you do, you probably remember the Icecrown Citadel quests introduced with Patch 3.3.3. These quests have finally appeared on live servers and the rewards from this questline are actually Shadowmourne extra rewards.
It looks like Blizzard decided to add a couple of flavor items to let you attract the attention even more! When you kill the Lich King with a player wearing Shadowmourne in the raid, you will get an additional item - Unsealed Chest. After bringing the chest to Darion he will open it up and let you bring the items back to their respective owners to get your rewards :
- Reins of the Crimson Deathcharger - A brand new mount that looks like the Death Knight's class mount.
- Muradin's Favor - A 10-minute Frost Dwarf transformation.
- Jaina's Locket - A portal to Dalaran on a 1-hour cooldown, you finally have your own pocket mage!
- Tabard of the Lightbringer - A tabard with a very shiny on-use effect.
- Sylvanas' Music Box - A music box that plays Lament of the Highborne.
I do realize that a couple of guilds with Shadowmourne already killed the Lich King in Patch 3.3.3, I will assume that the quest was bugged and only recently fixed. Thanks to Heist from EU-Genjuros for this info!
Fun fact, even the mount isn't bound on pickup. Time to buy all the Primordial Saronite at the AH.
Quest - Quest: Personal Property
Reward - Unsealed Chest
Bring the Sealed Chest to Highlord Darion Mograine in Icecrown Citadel.
You can detect no hinges or openings on this box. Were it not for the shifting of items inside, it could easily be mistaken for solid metal. If anyone could know the method of its opening, it would be Highlord Mograine.
Presumably, opening the box will contain five items, which the player will then return to their respective owners:
Quest - Jaina's Locket
Reward - Jaina's Locket
What's this? He... he kept it.. all this time he kept it!
I knew! I sensed a part of him still alive... trapped... struggling. Oh Arthas! Perhaps he might someday remember from what he once was... By the Light may he at last find rest, free from the icy grip of that terrible blade!
Quest - Muradin's Lament
Reward - Muradin's Favor - Frostborn Illusion - Screenshot
Oh lad, how I missed those endless days in Lordaeron, sharpening your skill with this dull blade. Forging you into a weapon meant to withstand the demands of a great destiny. Heh… You sure put them skills to use, didn't you lad? If only I'd been able to stop you that day, how different things migha' been. If only I'da never discovered that accursed blade. Farewell, Arthas, my brother.
Quest - Sylvanas' Vengeance
Reward - Sylvanas' Music Box
So, it is done. I had not dared to trust my senses. Too many times has the Lich King made me to be a fool. Finally, he has been made to pay for the atrocities he imposed upon my people. May Azeroth never fail to remember the horrible price we paid for our weakness, for our pride. But what now, Hero? What of those freed from his grasp but still shackled to their mortal coils? Leave me. I have much to ponder.
Quest - The Lightbringer's Redemption
Reward - Tabard of the Lightbringer
Arthas... Alas, hero of Azeroth. You give me a greater gift than you know. Long have I struggled to forgive the prince for his terrible transgressions. My soul has been wracked with unbearable anxiety, dark thoughts, distancing me from the light. I recall clearly... the gleam of pride in his eye as he stood before me, eager to defeat the enemies of the light... eager to defend his people, no matter the cost. It is this memory of Arthas that I choose to keep in my heart. I shall always be in your debt, friend. Thank you.
Quest - Mograine's Reunion
Reward - Reins of the Crimson Deathcharger
Alexandros: Darion, my son. At last I am able to lay my eyes upon you again. The Lich King tormented me without end, Darion. Endlessly he sought to break my will, to force me to serve him, to bind me to his blade. Finally, when events demanded his full attention, he left me. The one memory I clung to Darion, the one thought that kept me from giving in, it was your sacrifice, my son. That again saved me from eternal peril.
Darion: Father, father, I… I feared for your sanity, father, for you, I would give my life a thousand times.
