Iron Horde Weapon

Obtain 30 Blackrock Weapons.


There's nowhere to hide up here. We need to keep moving, and to do that, we need to pass right through the heart of the Iron Horde.

It's time to turn this unarmed group of prisoners into an army.


You will receive one of:

Item level 510 shoulders
Inv leather draenorquest95 b 01shoulder.png [Quarrier's Spaulders] Inv plate draenorquest90 b 01shoulder.png [Quarrier's Shoulderplates]
Inv cloth draenorquest95 b 01shoulder.png [Quarrier's Mantle] Inv shoulder mail draenorquest95 b 01.png [Quarrier's Pauldrons]

You will gain the following spells:

  • Cooldowns

You will also receive:

  • 11g 40s
  • 13700 XP


These prisoners are no less brave than you or I, <name>. Give them a weapon and an ounce of hope and they will fight like the storm.


Great work, <name>.

Don't put away your weapon yet - now's when the REAL work begins.


Before heading out to complete the quest, Thrall gives the freed slaves elemental blessings, while Yrel and Liadrin use the Light to treat the injured.

  • Thrall yells: Fury of Earth, grant these heroes your protection!
  • Thrall yells: Fury of Fire, ignite our fists and weapons!
  • Thrall yells: Fury of Wind, honor these soldiers with your presence!
  • Thrall yells: Fury of Water, heal our injured!

Loot weapons off the ground and kill Blackrocks for more. Weapon racks hold a half-dozen.

After gathering 30
Blackhand yells: What's this? What's going on down there?
Exarch Maladaar yells: Come, my brothers and sisters! We will bring justice to our dead by sending these orcs to the darkness beyond!
All of the freed slaves charge forward to the pile of weapons, preparing to fight, then gather down at the end of the road.
