A Bloodstained Envelope (starter)

For the quest item, see Inv letter 10.png  [A Bloodstained Envelope].

The subject of this article or section was part of the Scourge Invasion, a two-time world event that heralded the opening of Naxxramas in patch 1.11.0, and the opening of Northrend in patch 3.0.2.

A Bloodstained Envelope is a quest starting item dropped by event mobs during the Scourge Invasion event.


During the Scourge Invasion, non-elite mobs around the Necrotic Shards occasionally dropped one of 6 possible letters, of which this was one.

Each letter started a quest. Once accepted, the inventory item was replaced by a like-named item that was readable. This replacement item was a quest item for the associated quest.
