Bring a load of Umbral Ore to Tormus Deepforge in Ironforge.


My mentor, Sturgy Ironband, had a compound south of Helm's Bed Lake in eastern Dun Morogh. There he taught blacksmithing and he was the best.

But one day, one of his students brought him a load of strange ore.  Master Ironband called it umbral ore and was eager to work with it, but soon after it arrived... a band of Dark Iron dwarves attacked his compound. They killed everyone!

Enter Ironband's compound, <name>, and avenge my master's death. And bring me the load of umbral ore that caused it.


You will gain:

  • 650 XP (or 3s 90c at level 70)


Have you entered Ironband's Compound?  Did you find the umbral ore?


You found it! Well done!

I hope you killed a host of Dark Iron dwarves while searching.  I fear that Ironband's compound won't be the last place we see them.

But thank you for the ore, <name>.  I'm eager to work it and find its properties.


The previous quest, A Warrior [11] Tormus Deepforge, is NOT required to get this quest; though you may have to have completed the quest to attain the Defensive Stance.

The box you are looking for is inside the dwelling, on the bottom floor. Captain Beld, level 11, non-elite, guards the chest, with some assistance from nearby level 8-9 dark iron dwarves of various sorts.

For those using mapping mods, look for [77, 61].

There is a short cut scene after completing this quest, where Tormus pounds on his anvil a bit, then offers up a Grey Iron weapon.
