Mount Journal

When Baron Rivendare became a champion of the Scourge, he condemned his favorite horse to join him in undeath.


After Baron Rivendare's defeat in Naxxramas, Deathcharger's saddle was returned to Stratholme. The Deathlord of the Knights of the Ebon Blade sent champions on behalf of Salanar the Horseman to retrieve it, in order to create new steeds for the order's Four Horsemen. The ghost Vivian's Lament was the major obstacle to this goal.[1]

After the Fourth War, Mathias Shaw reported that for years it was rumored that Deathcharger could be tamed by mortals, but he has never seen anyone living riding him.[2]
