Death Knight Darkreaver was a level 62 elite death knight that lorded over the Great Ossuary in Scholomance. He spawned after the accursed spirits summoned by the  [Divination Scryer] were defeated.


Once a celebrated paladin, the man who would come to be known as Darkreaver was seduced by the call of the Lich King, and became an insidious death knight. His corruption spread to his steed, who was transformed into an undead horse. Darkreaver was sent to the Scholomance. In the dungeon below the Great Ossuary, he attempted to bend the spirit realm to his whim, summoning and corrupting spirits to do his bidding.

Sagorne Creststrider, a powerful shaman of Orgrimmar, discovered this deviation in the sacred spirit realm. He was searching for a courageous shaman to venture into Scholomance and face Darkreaver.

Meanwhile, Lord Grayson Shadowbreaker, a paladin in Stormwind City, wished to redeem Darkreaver's Fallen Charger, and put it to use with a truly devoted paladin. He, like Creststrider, was looking for a volunteer to battle Darkreaver.


Because the Divination Scryer was only given to shamans and paladins, the party had to have at least one player of that class who had taken the appropriate quest. This player could then start the battle by using the scryer, which summoned spirits that had to be defeated by the party. The battle went on for approximately 15–20 minutes before Darkreaver himself appeared, astride his horse. Once he was killed, the paladin could claim the  [Charger's Lost Soul] and redeem it, gaining the Charger as his or her own mount. The shaman, meanwhile, was able to loot  [Darkreaver's Head] to take back to Creststrider in Orgrimmar. Creststrider rewarded the shaman with a  [Skyfury Helm].
