Captain Ironbeard can be found in the Grotto of the Double-crossed Captain, located inside the Cave of Betrayal in southwestern Zorammarsh, Tanaan Jungle.


It is revealed through the Sea-kissed Scroll that the Ironbeard players fought in Ironfist Harbor was actually an imposter: Torglork, the First Mate. Following a day of successful raiding, Torglork and a couple of other members of the crew, wanting a larger share of the loot, jumped Ironbeard in the stash cave and murdered him. Not wanting their leaders to find out, Torglork then assumed Ironbeard's identity and posed as captain until the crew was reassigned to Ironfist Harbor in Nagrand.

The Third Mate, Trogra, secretly bribed a warlock to resurrect Ironbeard using a magical ritual and the  [Brazier of Awakening]. However, the ritual failed, and Ironbeard now exists only as an undead skeleton.
