Quest givers

The following NPCs offer this quest:


Retrieve the  [Ashwood Brand] and bring it to <Grand Champion> at the Argent Tournament Grounds.

Provided Item:


I've heard that the Alliance champions are seeking after ancient blades for their warriors. We can't afford to let them have that kind of advantage.

There's an old legend from Grizzly Hills about a maiden cursed with a frog's form to protect the blade she has long guarded. She lives among the lake frogs on the shore of Ashwood Lake, just east of Ashwood Post. The only thing said to break the curse is a kiss, freely given. Apply this balm before kissing anything, <name>. Otherwise, you'll catch warts.


You will receive: 13g 23s
Inv jewelry talisman 08.png 2x [Valiant's Seal]


Were you able to recover the blade?


So the tales were true? This blade should be enough to best anything those Alliance entries can come up with.


  • 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."
  • It took 15-20 /kiss until she appeared for me.

Useful Macro

To make this a little easier, try this macro:

/use Warts-B-Gone Lip Balm
/target Lake Frog

Get close to a Lake Frog and hit this macro. Note - this will target the nearest Lake Frog. The frog will eventually disappear, but if you don't want to wait for that to happen, add /cleartarget to the end of your macro and move closer to another frog.
