• Dartol's Rod of Transformation
  • Quest Item
  • Unique
  • Use: Transforms you into a Furbolg for 3 min.

Dartol's Rod of Transformation was originally created by Dartol.


This item is no longer obtainable. Previously, it was awarded for the quest A [28] Raene's Cleansing.

Other Uses

Since this item can be used an infinite number of times and the shapeshifting effect will last for three minutes or until a character takes damage, many players used to opt to complete enough of the A [19] Raene's Cleansing quest to receive this item and then simply keep it without finishing the quest. However, you now keep the rod even after completing the quest. Though it has no functional use outside of the quest, transforming into a furbolg can be entertaining.

  • There is no dance animation for a furbolg.
  • The shapeshift is lost when mounting up.
  • In [Shadowform], you will lose the dark coloring of your shadowform buff but you will still look faded even after the shapeshift has ended.
  • Note that the item is not retained through a Faction Change and will not be restored by a GM. In the case of a race change (i.e. from one Alliance race to another) it will disappear like other quest items, but GMs have been known to replace it.


Patch changes

  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Removed the quests that provided the item, but players who had it before retain it.
