Establish the Order of the Silver Hand using the Libram of Ancient Kings.

  • Walk with Lord Maxwell Tyrosus
  • Inscribe your name in the Libram
  • Establish the Order of the Silver Hand


The paladins of Azeroth must stand united behind a single leader. With Tirion's passing, you are the most worthy to wear the mantle of Highlord.

If you agree to accept this duty, inscribe your name into the Libram of Ancient Kings and I will address the masses on your behalf.

The Order of the Silver Hand is reborn, with you as its champion!


You will receive:

  • 15g 40s
  • 15,050 XP


Yes, Highlord?


We've done it, Highlord <name>.

The Order of the Silver Hand is reborn!


On accept
Lord Maxwell Tyrosus says: These fine men and women need a leader, <name>. Your deeds make you the clear choice to bear that burden. Come, I will address them on your behalf.
Tyrosus walks down the aisle to the far side of the hall.
Lord Maxwell Tyrosus yells: Paladins of Azeroth, you've gathered to mourn the loss of Highlord Tirion Fordring. Many of you looked to him as an ideal, the paragon of what we all strive to be.
Lord Maxwell Tyrosus yells: Let us observe a moment of silence for a great soldier, leader, and friend. In the Light we are one, brother. Always.
Lord Maxwell Tyrosus says: Inscribe your name into the Libram of Ancient Kings so that we may begin the ceremony.

Interact with the Libram:

Lord Maxwell Tyrosus yells: You all know the noble deeds of the champion at my side. <Name> has been chosen by the Light to succeed Tirion as Highlord. Under our new leader, this order shall become a mighty weapon brought to bear against the Legion!
Lord Maxwell Tyrosus yells: We must stand together against the coming darkness. We must cast aside the shackles of race and kingdom. We must unite as one!
Lady Liadrin says: The Blood Knights stand by you, Highlord <name>. Azeroth will not fall!
Vindicator Boros says: We pledge ourselves to your cause, Highlord!
Lord Maxwell Tyrosus yells: On this day, the Order of the Silver Hand is reborn! Together, Sargeras himself shall shudder at our might!
