For the Alliance draenei group, see Light's Vengeance (island expedition).

Light's Vengeance was Arthas Menethil's warhammer during his life as a paladin.

Light's Vengeance was an enormous, heavy-looking hammer, its silver head etched with runes and its sturdy haft wrapped in blue leather.[1] It was given to Arthas by Archbishop Faol when Arthas completed a ceremony held in the Cathedral of Light and joined the Knights of the Silver Hand.[2]

When he took up Frostmourne, Arthas discarded Light's Vengeance, leaving it behind in Frostmourne Cavern. Players can relive the scene in A [15-30] Frostmourne Cavern.

Darion Mograine wanted adventurers to collect Light's Vengeance in order to create an artifact to rival Frostmourne, believing that only the hammer of Arthas himself would provide a worthy model.[3][4] Reforged with saronite, Light's Vengeance was transformed into  [Shadow's Edge], which would later become  [Shadowmourne].
