This quest unites the Horde and Alliance versions of the Mithril Order quest chains.

Objectives

Speak with Galvan the Ancient in Stranglethorn Vale.

Description

Most of our recruits never make it to Booty Bay, <name>. The shine of the insignia is enough to trigger the loot lust in even the staunchest of blacksmiths. Fools they be, as the insignia is a drop in the bucket compared to the wealth of items you'll see!

Find Galvan the Ancient and show him this pin. His residence is far to the north, between Zul Gurub and the Mosh'Ogg ogre mound.

Completion

Ah, many years it has been since one has been worthy of the Mithril Order's initiation. We will start now!

Rewards

  • 3150 XP (or a 26 40 compensation at max level)
