Gift of Arthas provides shadow protection and a retribution debuff.

Materials required:
Inv misc herb 14.png 3x [Blindweed] Inv alchemy leadedvial.png 1x [Crystal Vial]


  • Gift of Arthas is named, not surprisingly, after Arthas Menethil, former prince of Lordaeron and the former Lich King.
  • Like the  [Gnomish Shrink Ray], very few mobs are immune to the effect of this item. Having a main tank chug one of these can help clear through trash mobs in raid dungeons.
  • This recipe no longer causes a disease to be put on the target, but rather a curse that does the exact same debuff. This is probably a consideration of the Death Knight class, who have a few abilities that are based on the number of active diseases they have on the target to deal more damage, such as [Scourge Strike].

This bright blue potion shimmers, gleaming and glittering in sunlight. Anyone tasting it has his spirits briefly lifted, as if a wave of happiness flowed through them. The potion provides partial protection from necromancy spells.[1]
