Retrieve the  [Ashwood Brand] and bring it to Magister Edien Sunhollow at the Argent Tournament Grounds.

Provided Item:


Some of the champions believe an ancient weapon born of Northrend will bring them luck in the tourney. I have agreed to help them search for these weapons.

There is an old legend about a maiden in Grizzly Hills, who guarded a powerful blade. She is said to have been cursed and turned into a frog, so that none would eve wield the blade. She lives among the frogs on the shore of Ashwood Lake, just east of Ashwood Post. It is said the only thing that can break the curse is a /kiss, freely given. Apply this balm before kissing anything, <name>. Otherwise, you'll catch warts.


You will receive: 5g 80s
Inv jewelry talisman 10.png 2x [Aspirant's Seal]


Were you able to recover the blade?


So there is some truth to those old tales? It seems the did not like about the quality of the blade. Well done, <name>. The champion who wields it will be a lucky man indeed.


  • Ashwood Lake is just to the east of Ashwood Post, which is itself to the southeast of Grizzlemaw and southwest of Camp Oneqwah in south-central Grizzly Hills.
  • Friendly Lake Frogs roam the lake. Apply the  [Warts-B-Gone Lip Balm], then blow a /kiss to one. Reapply balm as necessary to avoid getting debuffed with "Warts!"
  • Players will eventually get lucky and find the Maiden of Ashwood Lake, who immediately spawns saying "Can it really be? Free after all these years?"
    • The following gossip text then takes place:
    I thought I'd never be free from that terrible curse. You have my gratitude, stranger.
    Gossipgossipicon.png Glad to help, my lady. I'm told you were once the guardian of a fabled sword. Do you know where I might find it?
    Take it with my gratitude, <class>.
    • After 15–30 seconds, the Maiden will despawn saying "And now, I must return to the waters of the lake."
      • You do not need to be the one to kiss the frog to be able to talk to her.
