Arcanist Taelis at the Argent Tournament Grounds wants you to bring him Winter's Edge.


The Ironforge grand champion's squire told me an intriguing story.

In the center of Winter's Breath Lake in northern Howling Fjord, you will find a maiden encased in ice. She is the guardian of an ancient sword and waits there for the blade's new bearer to free her.

South of here, overlooking the exit to the Crystal Vice, you will find Lord Everblaze. Kill him, take his everburning ember, and use it to set the maiden free. Prove your worth and earn the weapon that she has guarded for so long, <name>.


You will receive: 2x  [Aspirant's Seal] and 22,050 experience (or 13g 23s at level 80).


Did you win the blade?


The blade is as fine as the squire said it would be, but where did he find out about it? No matter; it will serve its new owner well. Perhaps it's only fair that Ironforge's grand champion be the one to wield it.


The Crystal Vice is at the northern edge of Dragonblight bordering Crystalsong Forest. Lord Everblaze is situated just to the east of the path coming out of Dragonblight high up on the ridge at [54.8, 75.0]. He drops the  [Everburning Ember].

Take the Ember to northern Howling Fjord. Players with slower flying mounts may want to take connecting flight paths to Camp Winterhoof or Fort Wildervar. Winter's Breath Lake is the newly-named lake south of Gjalerbron and Camp Winterhoof. On a floating patch of ice at the center of the lake ([42.2, 19.7]) is the Maiden of Winter's Breath Lake, a frost nymph encased in a block of ice. Use the Ember to free her from the Curse of Ice and retrieve  [Winter's Edge].

Maiden of Winter's Breath Lake says: Thank you, mortal, for freeing me from this curse. I beg you, take this blade.
