Slay Warlord Blackhand and acquire his severed arm in the Blackrock Foundry.


<Name>, you've given me a lot to think about. There's a section of the  [Flamebender's Tome] that speaks about a "sacrifice," and a more recent notification referring to "the chieftain." I think it's talking about Warlord Blackhand.

Did Blackhand sacrifice someone? Himself? A piece of himself? Is that why his hand is deformed?

Before I risk channeling these elements into a spell, I need to know. And there's only one way to find out.

Kill Warlord Blackhand. And bring me his severed arm.


You will receive:


Well <name>? Are you armed?


What do we have here? The legends ARE true. Blackhand sacrificed his own arm to the elements. Now that he's dead, it's indistinguishable from stone. Or is it?

<Khadgar utters a few incantations from the Flamebinder's Tome. The severed hand slowly clenches into a fist.>

Hmmmm. Yes. <Name>, I'll be perfectly honest with you: This thing is extremely creepy.

On completion:

Archmage Khadgar says: And so the foundry falls! You've got the Iron Horde on the run, commander.


The quest item only drops on loot-eligible kills, so if after having already killed Blackhand this lockout for runes, save trying to kill him again for this quest until the next lockout.
