|Death Knight Darkreaver|
|Character class||Death Knight|
Once a celebrated paladin, the man who would come to be known as Darkreaver was seduced by the call of the Lich King, and became an insidious death knight. His corruption spread to his steed, who was transformed into an undead horse. Darkreaver was sent to the Scholomance. Today, in the dungeon below the Great Ossuary, he attempts to bend the spirit realm to his whim, summoning and corrupting spirits to do his bidding. Sagorne Creststrider, a powerful shaman of Orgrimmar, has discovered this deviation in the sacred spirit realm. He is searching for a courageous shaman to venture into Scholomance and face Darkreaver.
Meanwhile, Lord Grayson Shadowbreaker, a paladin in Stormwind, wishes to redeem Darkreaver's innocent mount, and put it to use with a truly devoted paladin. He, like Creststrider, is looking for a volunteer to battle Darkreaver.
Because the Divination Scryer is only given to shamans and paladins, the party must have at least one player of that class who has taken the appropriate quest. This player can then start the battle by using the scryer, which summons spirits that must be defeated by the party. The battle goes on for approximately 15–20 minutes before Darkreaver himself appears, astride his horse. Once he is killed, the paladin can claim the Charger's Lost Soul and redeem it, gaining the Charger as his or her own mount. The shaman, meanwhile, is able to loot Darkreaver's head to take back to Creststrider in Orgrimmar. Creststrider will reward the shaman with a Skyfury Helm.
