Salanar the Horseman asks that you steal a horse from the Havenshire Stables and return it to him at Death's Breach.

  • Horse Successfully Stolen


How fortuitous is it that the Crusade has a stable full of horses a mere stone's throw from this post. Though they guard it tenaciously, an enterprising young death knight could break through their defenses and take what is rightfully <his/hers>!

Once you acquire a horse from the Havenshire Stables, return it to me and I will see what can be done about transforming it into a proper deathcharger.

Remember, <name>, it's only stealing if you're caught. Watch out for that deranged stable master Kitrik!


You will receive: 1 Bonus talent and 85s


You don't want to walk forever, do you?


Now for the true test. Can you show mastery over an unbound charger and brutally overtake the thing that you desire most?


After completing the other quests in the area, head to the Stables and right-click on any available horse.

Ride back to camp, then press 1 to deliver the horse to Salanar.

Salanar sends the hapless horse to the realm of shadows.
Salanar the Horseman says: The realm of shadows awaits...


This quest's title is a play on the crime of motor vehicle theft, sometimes referred to in the US as "grand theft auto". It may also be inspired by the popular video game series Grand Theft Auto.

It's possible to steal one of the very small colts, for a humorous effect.
