Light's Vengeance was an enormous, heavy-looking hammer, its silver head etched with runes and its sturdy haft wrapped in blue leather.[1] It was given to Arthas by Archbishop Faol when Arthas completed a ceremony held in the Cathedral of Light and joined the Knights of the Silver Hand.[2]

When he took up Frostmourne, Arthas discarded Light's Vengeance, leaving it in Frostmourne Cavern in the Dragonblight. Players can see a flashback of this scene in the quest Official alliance mini-icon  [71] Frostmourne Cavern.

The Sacred and the Corrupt

Darion Mograine wants adventurers to collect Light's Vengeance for the quest Neutral 15  [83] The Sacred and the Corrupt. He wishes to create an artifact to rival Frostmourne, and believes only the hammer of Arthas himself will provide a worthy model.[3]

When reforged with saronite, Light's Vengeance is transformed into Shadow's Edge, the unfinished form of Shadowmourne.
