Malyfous Darkhammer is a Dark Iron dwarf quest giver located in Everlook in Winterspring.

He originally crafted three epic items for you via quests:  [Breastplate of Bloodthirst],  [Leggings of Arcana], and  [Cap of the Scarlet Savant]. When The Beast in Upper Blackrock Spire was killed and skinned, Finkle Einhorn appeared. He offered a quest that could be turned in to Malyfous to allow you to take these quests from a catalogue on a barrel next to him.

The Thorium Brotherhood does not waste time on ants. Be gone!

Gossip Tell me about the hide.

It's a simple process for a craftsman of my caliber.
The most difficult aspect of crafting items out of beast hides and carapace is the actual acquisition of said parts. Now, if you could bring me a pristine hide from this beast, I could make several different powerful items from the flesh.

Gossip What are the chances of obtaining such a hide?

I reckon that the odds of obtaining such a piece would be a one in a million! A once in a lifetime skin! Even the most disciplined artisans of the craft would no doubt fail several hundred times in the process of skinning the beast before a pristine sample was recovered.

Gossip So let us pretend I get this hide, what else would you need and what could you actually make?

If you actually brought me the hide of the beast? Well... Let me show you...

Gossip Ok!

Malyfous turns and points to his catalogue on the barrel.
Malyfous Darkhammer says: Read through my catalogue, <name>.


He was also involved in three quests which you could gain by reading his catalogue. Each of these quests requires a  [Pristine Hide of the Beast] among other items from high-level instances.

The Pristine Hide can be skinned from The Beast in Blackrock Spire. The Beast requires 310 skill to be skinned, but drops  [Finkle's Skinner] which provides a +10 bonus to Skinning, thus enabling any skill 300 skinner to skin it (except paladins, who cannot equip daggers). The only other item in the game that adds +10 skinning is the  [Zulian Slicer] from High Priest Thekal in Zul'Gurub, along with  [Skinning], which gives only +5 to skinning.
