Too bad you miss great piece of interesting lore if you don't have that sword... Although it makes you feel very special if you have it. I wish there was more such weapons in WoW.
Remember to unequip this before you go to Light's Hope, it makes you temporarily Hated with Argent Dawn.
This drops from the Four Horsemen in Naxxramas. This sword isn't that great especially because of the -25 stamina. However, it begins a quest that should take you to Outland where you can get the purified version which is a great sword that is legendary. It has a cool story to it and is an enjoyable quest to undertake. Especially when you go into Scarlet Monastery and everyone bows down to you if you have it equipped. Make sure you go to the cathedral instance and talk to Mograine =).
very much dissapoints me that this can only be used by two handers... there is no such other weapon like htis and the only reason id want it is cause several of my freinds just walk past the mobs in scarlet monastary and when they get to the boss pull out better weapons... why can they do this for a 1 hander? and if there already is a 1 hander plz tell.
The sound files, which actually sent a chill up my spine. Genuinely creepy stuff. The voice is Morgraine's, with Kel'thuzad underneath it.
1. I was pure once.
2. Fought for righteousness.
3. I was called Ashbringer.
4. Betrayed by my order.
5. Destroyed by Kel'Thuzad.
6. Suffer pain to serve.
7. My son watched me die.
8. Crusades fed his rage.
9. Truth is unknown to him.
10. Scarlet Crusade is pure no longer.
11. Balnazzar's crusade corrupted my son.
12. Kill them all!
For cleansing the blade, you need to remake it.. Fairbanks said that the old was too corrupted, so we had to find his 2. son and make a new..
The first was crafted from a evil crystal from a orc warlock, that came from Dreanor..
The only place I can think of is back in Illidans Black Temple.. Since he has taken use from corrupted fell orcs, I guess a VERY low droprate, maybe close to same droprate as Bindings or Eye of Sulf, just from some special mobs...
When you got that tainted crystal from fel orcs that original came from Dreanor, just like the the one the first Ashbringer was made of, then it will start a quest..where you will have to gather a lot of mats.. Maybe some sort of Black Temple mats.. Very sure that a lot of Primal Nether.. and a big load of Holy things..
The tainted crystal can maybe only be seen or taken from those who have the sword..
"Once the sword is acquired, equipping it will curse the owner, turning the Argent Dawn faction to Hated (temporarily). However, visiting the Scarlet Monastery with the sword equipped yields interesting results! All the NPCs in the Cathedral instance will turn and bow before the person who has the sword. After you reach the Cathedral and talk to Scarlet Commander Mograine, the ghost of Highlord Mograine, the Ashbringer, enters and speaks with his son.
"Father... But... How?"
"Did you think that your betrayal would be forgotten? Lost in the carefully planned cover up of my death? Blood of my blood, the blade felt your cruelty long after my heart had stopped beating. And in death, I knew what you had done. But now, the chains of Kel'Thuzad hold me no more. I come to serve justice. I AM ASHBRINGER."
"Forgive me, father! Please... "
<The Ashbringer smites his trecherous son with a blast of light.>
"You are forgiven..." "
This was taken from ashbringer.com in the Lore section of the ashbringer...
From what i have read this sword will have almost nothing to do with recieving the ashbringer as if you posses this sword and talk to Fairbanks he clearly states that "The sword is beyond clensing" so the only thing this will have to do with the ashbringer is that you will have to have CA to obtain Ashbringer
I'm currently looking for a "Ashbringer Set" just for the rp-effect. Already got the Scarlet Chain set and a nice helm. Now I'm looking for some cool shoulders like the Imperial Plate Shoulders (
) but in red.
Anyone knows where to get some?
Ok this is the part were i'm confused
On wowmodelview, I looked up Ashbringer, it had 4 items.
Ashbringer, Cleansed Ashbringer, Corrupted Ashbringer and The Cleansed Ashbringer.
Ashbringer looked sorta holy-ish, smaller, and instead of the skull on corrupted it had a light glowing ball thing.
Corrupted looks better imo
Is there anything you can do with the reputation you get with the Scarlet Crusade?
sad lose 250hps
If you type the sound effect out in chat can other party memmbers hear it?
(In Reply to Mariachei) No, i have typed the sound files while playing and none of the members in my party could hear it.
(In a semi-related matter) Will you have to get reattuned to naxxramas once it is remade? If so will it be with a new faction or still with Argent Dawn? (Kind of like the Cenerion Expedition faction with Burning Crusade)
Does anyone know if when WotLK comes out and Naxx moves will there be 2 Naxxs EPL and Northrend Naxx or just the Northrend one?
If it's just the one I guess that all previous loot from Naxx will be unobtainable after the E2 and therefore anyone who wishes to get this (for loregasm's sake) will have to get it before WotLK. (therefore will also have to try and convince guild to do some Deathknight wing runs to get it.
This sword makes such a grand appearance in Tales of the Past III.
I have the Sword, i always play with WoW-Sounds and i did a LOT of PvP back in the 60ies + even Leveling with it, believe me, it never ever spoke on Life Servers. And you know what?
Check this Allakhazam link (sorry to wowhead, but you're up to date):
This are the old stats the sword had, before anyone had it. Linked from PTR. The LIFE-STATS can be seen above (lifeleech, Hit Rating, no more Call of the Ashbringer).

The CHANCE ON HIT has never been on life-servers, trust me. Allakhazam got the Data leaked from PTR and it seems they never bothered to update. The Sounds came from that Chance on Hit.
I read all the posts about going into, obviously, Scarlet Monestary with this equipt, and it make me wonder.. What about Strat Live? There's Scarlet Crusade in there too, infact -the- Grand Crusader himself (really a demon, but thats a whole 'nother lore story) resides there. Or even non-instance places like Hearthglen and Tyr's Hand. There's even SC at Light's Hope Chapel that talk about the Ashbringer, though I'm not sure how safe it would be to go there while being hated with AD. ;>.> Just curious how those areas would play out. Something new to ponder.
Nothing happens in either Stratholme, I've taken the blade in just about everywhere. Only SM.
how many pple lvl 70 with tier 4 gear would be needed to do this
my take about the dowrated guy is simple.
Naxx will move to northrend while another CItadel,
ruled by another lich will remain to look after the scourge's job on
As allways blizz will just rename some things around.
Like Kazzak, he moved in outlands and another lieutenat got his spot...
Whether and there is a quest on clarification of this sword? From Corrupted in sacred. I simply heard that there is a special quest...
As stated, t makes you temporarily hated with the argent dawn.. im wondering if you can go to argent dawn unarmed and be friendly with the crusade and them..
and i did not know they had a rep bar and turned green or something.
PS: do the guys still attack other members of your party after theyve seen you? or do they just go friendly?
Does anyone else feel it should be classified as an artifact or legendary item not necessarily because of power, but because of significance? Not that it matters, hardly no one does Naxx anymore.
Fascinating, thanks for posting.
Does it say: Minus 20 sta?? O.o???
I have recently begun delving into the lore of WoW and searching for weapons with lore behind them. Are there other weapons in WoW with this much lore behind them?
there is no living side in Scolomance so i guess u mean Stratholme, but if u read a post just a few inches up someone has tested taking it through all o Strat and other places and nothing happens except in the Scarlet Monestary.
And regarding other weapons with lots of lore behind them, do not forget Atiesh, gretstaff of the guardian. Medivh's old staff and before him his mothers (aegwynn).
only real event thing i can think of about atiesh besides transporting party members to kara is that when engaging Shade of Aran in Karazhan he does some emotes like "where did u get that? did HE send you?!" referring to his son Medivh ofc. But he only does that if someone has the atiesh staff equipped during the start of the battle.
If Naxx was to be moved to Northrend and the lvl 60 version was destroyed in the process would it be possible to aquire the sword pre WOTLK and have it already at lvl 80 once blizz reitemizes the items from Naxx to scale with the new lvls
Guessing that I'm the first, and maybe even only BE Paladin with it. Had it since 8th of September. :)
There is no such character on the live servers named Piuslol (either on the EU or US servers). That's a private server screenshot.
There are rumors that when Naxx moves to Northrend, the level 60 Corrupted Ashbringer will still be a drop from the reworked Four Horsemen event. Probably a very low drop rate, but I think Blizz wants to keep the content alive for the ability to get the legendary weapon.
In Tales of the past III they say that if you kill the old Ashbringer with the sword, the killer becomes the next ashbringer. Pretty sweet, huh?
The level 60 version of the sword won't be a likely drop. I would be hella *!@#ed if I was running the new and improved Naxx and got a weapon with a level 60 req and a 90 DPS. Consider the fact that Naxx is likely to be a pretty high end raid. It probably won't be the second highest, but it will be pretty up there. Kel'Thuzad is a powerful opponent, and Lieutenant of the Lich King. Current Tier 6 weapons have between a 139 and 149 DPS. Corrupted Ashbringer was a VERY nice weapon back in the day. In fact, it had the second highest 2h weapon DPS in game, only beaten by Might of Menethil, which had a 95.3 DPS. Now consider that for a second. A 53 DPS boost from the best 2h weapon in game Pre-BC to the best in BC. If this keeps up, level 80 instances will be looking at around 200 DPS. Having an item drop on a low droprate, with 110 DPS less than the other 2h weapons dropping, simply for the memories attached for only a small number of players? No, there's going to be a Corrupted Ashbringer, as well as a likely quest line to get your new, fancy Ashrbinger Reborn (or whatever they call it), but it won't be the level 60 version. It's gonna be a nearly 200 DPS monster of a weapon.
One of the only items that gives a negative "bonus" to a stat.
Im curious if you would be able to get this sword after WOTLK has launched, now that Naxx is gonna fly away... if not, im gonna be sad :( When it dropped another guildmate got it over me, i really really want it!
on our server there has been weekly naxx raids and so far 2 ppl have gotten this item thats a total of 3 ppl on our server now
In the Final quest in the line of Death knight starting quest, in which the Death knight along with a large Scourge force lead by Highlord Darion Mograine attack Light's Hope Chapel. After a number of defenders are killed, he will appear and Highlord Darion Mograine will surrender after a great number of the Scourge force is killed. The Lich King will appear and briefly fight with Highlord Darion Mograine and he attempts to kill Tirion. Highlord Darion Mograine uses the last of his strength to throw the Corrupted Ashbringer to Tirion, which upon catching it is seemingly purified. He then with Ashbringer in hand confronts the Lich King, who in turn retreats shortly after. Afterwards he revives Highlord Darion Mograine and then promises that Arthas, the Lich King will be defeated and call for a union of the Argent Dawn and the Knights of the Silver Hand.
Tirion battles with Arthas. This is the story how new Ashbringer will born.
in case some didn't noticed the ashbringer that in wotlk comes in hand of the New Highlord of the Argent Crusade (yeah argent dawn and scarlet crusade merged) is from the other son of Alexandros Mograine (aka Highlord Morgraine) who died in "an attack by Light's Hope Chapel' which is veryfied by the Death Knight quest line where instructor Razuvious mentions "even the mighty Naxxarmas couldn't sustain an attack by light hope's chapel" so the new ashbringer is the one forged by the new Mograine,Darion Mograine leading the Knights of the Ebon Blade the death knight order which betrayed Arthas. In the cinematic you see the guy with the New Ashbringer try one shot the Lich King but he fails and so Arthas challenge him to go to Northrend where " the next time we meet is not going to be on a holy ground "
And to conclude the whole matter the CORRUPTED is staying that way the new one was given to an NPC . /cry
Now Downrate me cause I' m one hell of a Spoiler
so we see that Mograine's family had a Father who was a Raid Boss , one son that became a Raid Boss and a son that stayed all his life a 40 level Dungeon paladin style boss.
Good thing he killed him XD
Has anyone tried taking this to Old Hillsbrad? In the Southshore Inn there is a group of NPCs that talk about the Ashbringer.
isit juz me or do i see a minus sign in front of the 25 stam? does it reduce ur stam by 25?
*** WRATH SPOILERS***
Currently in the beta, a Corrupted Ashbringer is wielded by Darion Mograine, the other son of Alexandros. Darion is now a Death Knight, and a lieutenant of the Lich King. During the Final quest of the DK starting zone, he leads a charge upon Light's Hope Chapel, during which he finds the blade is resisting his commands. When Darion arrives at the Chapel, he is defeated by Tirion Fordring, who shows him how devoted to the Light he used to be in a mini-cutscene kind of thing. The Lich King turns up, and Darion tries to attack him, but is easily knocked aside, and the Lich King curses Tirion, who starts to die. Darion throws the Corrupted Ashbringer to Tirion, and upon Tirion catching it, it is purified, and Tirion, now healed, fends off the Lich King, who flees.
During this, it is mentioned that there is some extremely powerful holy artifact underneath LHC, which may or may not have contributed to the cleansing of the sword.
this wep gives 2 % crit and has a proc.for lifestealing . can someone tell me can that damage be raised with spell damage or healing bonus please post. if it can this will be the best 2 h wep for paladi n on 60 level.
Get this and Atiesh while you can guys, looks like Naxxramas40 will be closed for good after Naxx is moved to Northrend for the xpack :)
yeah verry nice sword verry cool looking one 2 :p
Oh, there IS NO BETTER SWORD THEN FROSTMOURNE!1! That sword as immortalized by Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. Also, imao, WoW is more fun if you have played the original warcraft games.
Here is the video of the last Ashbringer droped before the Naxx removal from a patch.
Its edited so you can see what son and his *dad* are talking.
It wasn't removed , you are just unable to get it anymore ,still have it on my hunter anyway .
And how are you supposed to dualwield a unique item ? Loot system made you pass on it if you allrdy had it. That was before patch 3.0 and Naxx was removed after the patch which means you cant obtain a second one even if they would have removed "unique-euqipped" tag.
So even in WOTLK you wouldn't be able to obtain it at all?
And where exactly are you hearing rumors about the pally/ death knight quest for it?
not questioning it relevance just want to see for myself.
Blizzard moving Naxx and destroying the level 60 loot tables was BY FAR the WORST decision they have EVER made. Ashbringer... GONE. Atiesh... GONE. Both precious pieces of lore destroyed by their creators... Just... Why Blizzard?
I just talked to a gm and he said Ashbringer is obtainable but they will not give any leads
to be honest they probably haven't found a good spot to put it in the game other than where it was but...sadly the loot tables were destroyed... /cry :'(
Yeah deleting this from the game is just a waste imho .No matter this is 60 lv item i is still the most lore item in this game ,and after not geting it the first two times it droped for my paladin i was hoping there will be a 80 lv version of this in Northrend ,but probably there can be .
Let's not hope a huge lore figure like Tirion dies, perhaps he might just come and do the old Maiev, Illidan thing, and Tirion doesn't die, but Arthas does.
Can you even get this items now that naxx has been reopened?
I havn't seen any form of recreation of this naxx weapon like the others... Tell me if you have some info about it.
I hate it when ppl doesnt read any *!@#ing info/posts at. You know what ? That makes you look stupid. Besides, Mograine aint even in Naxx anymore so can you plz tell me who would drop the Corrupted Ashbringer ? Theres two freaking pages with info and you want ppl to tell you if they know anything +
It didn't get deleted from the database, it just isn't available to players anymore (or rather the boss that drops it doesn't exist anymore) . The ones that got it back in the day still have it afaik.
This is the only weapon from the original Naxxramas that wasn't renamed for the new Naxxramas in WotLK. I imagine this is for lore reasons and to make the old version that much more special.
this does not drop anymore :(
What happens if you had this sword pre bc, do you keep it in wotlk lol... would be intresting to see any1 with it.
This sword has unique traits to it making one of the most renowned item in game and it is no longer obtainable. I wish Blizzard can do this to the Frostmourne or some other lore item that has "The will of The Ashbringer" with all the nicely done whispers when you equip it.
Tigole has stated that it was a "mistake" to ever let this get in the hands of players.
Unfortunately the blade does not speak to you. And it never has... I got the blade way back and have used it every now and then and not a single whisper has been heard :/
So unless they fixed this in 3.x.x the blade remains silent even though the whisper files themselves are pretty much the coolest thing in the game.
To be honest.. I think how the Ashbringer became pure in tales 3 was way better than in the game. To release Mograine's soul by stabbing him is soo much better than Darion Mograine jus throwing the sword, and Tirion Fordring strangely turns it pure jus by catching it. I kno there's probably more to it, but I still think there's a lack of creativity...
That's crap they need to bring this back for the love of the game. The lore alone is worth the trouble to get this epic item. Come on Blizz bring it back!
This no longer drops...your better off getting
Now I was just wondering...does it drop? I know it says it doesnt but...i just want to know.Please dont '-' this it's just a question.
in alterac valley the bg if u either kill an enimy player or a enimy gurd a piece of paer drops somthing to do with extereme angeling when u read this it tells u about the ashbringer is in a lake haha not so simple there is only 1 page and big suprise it doesnt tell you were it is and there has to bee over 100 lakes and rivers in wow so i thought there has to be somthing in ah that tells your or a clue btw to verifiy lellik0147 the light of power under lights hope name isnt mentioned the main quest objective was to discover the light of dawn but that was just to watch the lickh king betray u and get wounded by ashbringer
ive noticed in lights hope chapel there is a box at the very back so maybe if there is a way to purify the ashbringer
*sigh* such a shame it's no longer available ... I'd love this on my DK >.<;;
yeah i agree i think i think know why u cant get ahbringer from nax anymore coz at the end of dk quest line tiron gets the ashbringer obvously anf mograin gets hngering cold or somthing
It appears one is friendly with the folks in SM now, even with the sword unequipped. It needs to be put into the bank, if you want to run SM. I haven't tested it at LHC yet.
You cant get it because it was the freakin weapon of man called "The Ashbringer" (obviously). Hes not even in Naxx anymore, so even if Ashbringer would remain corrupted, there wouldnt be a new one from the lvl 80 Naxxramas.
Blizzard cares about Cashbringer more than Ashbringer nowadays :>...
Are you guys thinking that "Corrupted Ashbringer" gonna come again? i hope so, becaus i want it to my Death Knight! :3 I hope i gete answer of my question ^^
can some one tell me how to get this item (please send me a something telling me where to get it please))
Can nobody tell me about "Corrupted Ashbringer" Is comming again? I really hope so :P Pleas answer my question ^^
No you will not ever see a corrupted Ashbringer ever again. They may let us have the purified version, but my guess is that if they do it will be like TK weapons where you lose it after you kill Arthas or something like that.
After all, it's Tirion's sword now, and if I were him I wouldn't give it up. But who knows? Maybe he comes to aid the raid in Icecrown and sacrifices himself to help kill Arthas after we do the dirty work, then someone gets to loot the sword. Just speculation of what could be.
looking back on the ashbringer brings up the question (at least for me) what will become of frostmourne? will blizzard allow it to players just strait up? or will they make you go through some huge chain to purify it (after all ner'zul would be dead so it should be purifiable right?) or would blizzard just not allow it? i cant wait to see what blizzard does to continue the legendary blade's lore
I wish players could use it.
I don't think it'll be purified, nor do I even think Arthas will die. Arthas "is" the Lich King (He did merge with Ner'zhul upon putting on the helmet), if the Lich King would die, all of the Scourge would get a free will, and eventually would die out. The game's not really whole without it, and what becomes of everything in Northrend when almost everything but a few zones and some other stuff are of the Scourge? Sure, there are a few living races among the Lich King's ranks, like the Vrykul.
I don't even think Frostmourne will drop at all. Arthas might be a raidboss in later content, though he never will be killed, I'm sure of it. Frostmourne won't drop either. What could be possible is that Arthas leaves a chest with some stuff inside that you get to take when you've "defeated" him. Because of the shattering of Arthas' heart, he is already weakened (Went down from like 30 mil to 8 mil or so as seen in the Tirion's Gambit quest). When the Icecrown Citadel raid comes, I think Arthas' HP will be about 8 mil on 10-man and about 30 mil on 25-man, reason I find for such is that 25 man is done later than 10 man and by that time Arthas may have regenerated his full strength.
This is all speculation and shalln't be counted for.
What more would support this is that, stated a bit above, Tigole said it was a mistake to ever let the Corrupted Ashbringer in the hands of players. This probably means Frostmourne won't be available either.
Then i know that :P but i have seen Frostmourne stats -.- and it have 200+ Sta. and 150+ Int. :P pretty nice state ^^ and have a hard damage :P
World Changing Item would be hilarious for a joke actually. They could make it so... if your guild downs Arthas, the killing blow of Arthas gets the Frostmourne, equips it....
They have to be the Raid Boss for a week... or until they get killed, and the cycle continues... So that person goes -> another instance and waits for someone to come into the citadel :D :D HAHAH anyway... would teach you to kill the damned king ... Everytime you wipe a raid, you get epix from the players XD You have to play Bejeweled while you are Arthas, because your actions are not under your control. You then just kind of... live or die by the sword :D
Its cool, the scene you see at SM actually happens to Darion Mograine (High Lord of the Knights of the Ebon Blade) when he was a palladin while he was part of the Argent Dawn and during the Arthas fight Blizz could bust out sooo many people to help you fight Arthas
my list of people to help you kill the Lich King:
And depending on who they use you could get Frostmourne and the Ashbringer, but they will most definitely out in Frostmourne... hello Warglaives of Azzinoth and I doubt that Illidan could be vanquished that easily
How did Garrosh Hellscream die? I was told the person who died at the Wrath Gate was not Garrosh Hellscream
Garrosh is his son, and i've beaten Warcraft III several times
Garrosh is alive and still arguing with Saurfang senior.
I'm wondering, does this sword have any influence on the Argent Crusade and the Scarlet Onslaught factions in Northrend? Making you respectively hated and friendly?
"Old Naxxramas" should be implemented in a future patch (or expansion), accessed via the Caverns of Time, and Corrupted Ashbringer should be strengthened to be lvl 80 (or 90, who knows). I would love to carry this blade, even in it's corrupted form, with pride...
Is this still there after naxx was bumped to lvl 80 and the date i posted this?
If you stand next to High lord Darion Morgraine in the starting quest area for Death Knights, you are able to hear the Corrupted Ashbringer whisper every once in awhile
No disenchanting tab? I HOPE THERE WON'T BE.
: This weapon, along with all T3 gear, is no longer attainable because 40-man Naxxramas does not exist. I does not loot anywhere in 10-man or 25-man. But, the actuall Ashbringer (
) can be seen held by Highlord Mograine at the Argent Vangaurd in Icecrown. (Can also been seen when the Argent Crusade is created during the Battle for Light's Hope Chapel (only available on Death Knights).)
I am sure (99% :P) that Darion Mograine will defeat the Lich King in the final battle .. with the Cleansed Ashbringer.
As known from the final scene of the DK questchain Alexandros Mograine said to his son, that one day he will weild the Ashbringer, but that day was not today. And Darion himself said this, before throwing the corrupted blade to Tirion Fordring.
I think that Tirion Fordring will be defeated in the battle against Arthas or at least he'll be disarmed, and so Darion will take his father's blade and say:
"Now the time has come, father." ( xD) .. or sth like that ^^
You know the rest .. power of light etc. --> peace ^^ --> Rebirth of Lordaeron.
The End. ;)
They should keep the Corrupted Ashbringer because it has alot of lore behind it.
Also people who get to 80 and dont have it want to get it...I don't know it's blizzes game they can change lore all they want.
Can anyone tell me the steps to get this sword, or can you not get it anymore?
I am as sad as you all about that fact, but noone can get it anymore!
It dropped in Old Naxxramas above the Eastern Plaguelands from the 4 Horsemen. Now that Naxx was taken to Northrend and Mograine has been replaced by Baron Rivendare, the Corrupted Ashbringer cannot drop and noone is able to pick it up.
The same happened to Atiesh, Grandstaff of the Guardian. Its fragments also dropped in Old Naxx.
The only way to get one of them is to be GM on a privet server ^^
i wonder what would happen if someone took this and stood in front of tirion fordring while he had the uncorrupted one?
nothing, I think ^^ .. no event or something else...
I'm not very sure, if there still exist the effect of fraction changing...
a friend told me that he has tested the Scralet Monastery Event some days ago on his server. Actually he said, that he hasn't notice anything different when he entered the cathedral dungeon, which means that the NPCs still be enemy targets.
because of that fact Ibelieve, that the event has been patched out some time ago. And so it could be possible that you don't become unfriendly or else with the fraction Argent Dawn or Argent Crusade (which are in any case two different things) by equipping the Corrupted Ashbringer.
Moreover It's no RP if you stand with the Corrupted Ashbringer beside Tirion holding the Cleansed one ;) ... it doesn't fit :P
Darion: "I can feel it...Its power is... unexplainable..."
Ashbringer whispers: " Take it..."
Darion: "By the..."
Darion wields the Ashbringer.
Darion drops Ashbringer off hands,falls on his knees,and looks upon Arthas.
Arthas: "NOO! NOT THE CARPET!"
Arthas looks at Darion,and cowers his face with a palm.
Jaina walks inside the room,and looks at Darion.
Jaina rolls on the floor laughing.
Tirion wakes up.
Tirion starts arising from the floor.
Arthas: "Your little friend over there still cant hold it..."
Arthas points at Darion.
Tirion looks at Darion.
Tirion questions Arthas.
Arthas: "Look lower..."
Tirion looks at Darion.
Tirion cowers his face with a palm.
Arthas: " I told you to give me more time but nooooo,u haave to kill me ..."
Tirion: "Oh shut up...Jaina what are you doing here?"
Jaina: "I couldnt...haha...wait in the...haha...carriage...hahaha..."
Tirion: "Oh control yourself girl...speak fluently...."
Jaina: "Im..im sorry...it wont happen again..."
Tirion: "Now repat it..."
Jaina: " I couldnt wait in the carriage...and u two stayed for too long ..."
Tirion: " Oh dont worry,were chatting...right Arthas?"
Tirion looks around the room.
Tirion: " Arthas! Where did he go?"
A sound comes out of one of the doors,simmilar to water falls...
Doors open and Arthas runs out.
Arthas:"Sorry sorry,i couldnt hold it anymore..."
Tirion sighs at Arthas.
Arthas:"Oh cmon better out that inside,right Darion?"
Darion still in shock,nods.
Jaina rolls on the floor laughing.
Tirion:"Oh dear god,not again..."
Tirion looks at Jaina,and cowers his face with a palm.
Arthas:"The girl is nuts,thats why i love her,heh."
Tirion:"Oh well,where were we?"
Arthas:"Oh chill Tirion,you dont see..."
Arthas whispers:"You dont see her breasts sticking out every day dont you?"
Arthas winks at Tirion.
Arthas:"What? Oh cmon,im still young...younger than some other people present..."
Arthas:"Well youre getting old mister..."
Tirion:"As long as i can wield a sword,im young as a stallion!"
Arthas:"Well some gay kinda stallion,seems like..."
Tirion:"Were not here to talk about my private life!"
Arthas:"So you dont denie it,eigh?"
Arthas:"Okay,okay,where were we?"
Tirion:"Ehm...we fought,than ehm the cook hited the gong,while i was near it,so i passed
out...than ehm..that happened i guess...."
Tirion points at Darion.
Arthas:"Ah,right,well ehm can we talk after dinner,oooor?"
Arthas:"Damn...we have chicken...."
Arthas:"Okaaaay....damn...im starting to hate horses...especialy the ones with...special
Arthas points at Darion.
Darion shakes his head dejectly.
Jaina rolls on the floor laughing.
Tirion:"ENOUGH! Go outside and wait in the carriage! Youre driving me crazy!"
Jaina heads to the door.
Arthas:"Ill walk her out,if you dont mind...."
Arthas grabs Jaina for her rear.
Jaina slaps Arthas in the face!
Arthas falls on the ground,shocked!
Tirion:"THATS IT! Im ^&*!ed!"
Tirion starts walking towards Arthas,and grabing his Ashbringer.
Tirion slips on the wet carpet.
Tirion pulls the carpet,and Jaina falls on the vacuum cleaner.
Jaina gets hited by a power circuit.
Arthas:"Fried breasts....nice....oh %^&*...."
Jaina grabs Arthas by his leg.
Arthas gets hited by a power circuit.
: Oh shut up,i have a soulstone >.>
: Mind telling me next time? -.-'
: I think ill need new panties :<
I got this weapon on a private server (no longer obtainable in retail) and the event will not trigger in sm...anyone know if it was removed or something?
nice .. here's the proof
just as I said. The event has been removed ... I'm sad about it :(
I think it was removed when WotLK came out (patch 3.0 or earlier )
Actually, it did make its way into wrath of the lich king, just not as many players expected it. (Warning: If you by some chance have not made a death knight there are a number of spoilers, so read on at you digression =D!)
Once you create a Death Knight you are under the command of Highlord Darion Morgraine (Second Son of Scarlet Command Morgraine, aka "The Ashbringer" (from whence the sword draws its name)) who is under the command of the Lich King. You work your way through a series of quest and you find yourself at the end with The Battle for Lights Hope Chapel. You and your fellow Death Knights along with hundreds of other scourge minions fight on against The paladins of the silver hand and the argent dawn who are defending the chapel. Eventually you and your fellow Death Knights are defeated after the appearance of Highlord Tirion Fordring. Once it is just you, Morgrane, and a handful of other Death Knights remaining you find out that Scarlet Command Morgraine is buried here and you see a short cutscene which is a memory from Darion's Childhood and is a short discussion between him and his father. This is also where you find out you were just used as tools to draw out Highlord Fordring from hiding so that the Lich King may kill him. There is a short discussion between the Lich King and Fordring and then the Lich King Proceeds to cast a spell greatly wounding and crippling the paladin, encasing him in a dark sphere. Darion Morgraine is furious at how he and the other death knights were used and sent to their own death, he then proceeds to throw the "Corrupted Ashbringer" at the Tirion Fordring (Still within the black sphere) and this shatters the sphere freeing Fordring. This causes Darion to fall to the ground and then Fordring takes up the ashbringer some how cleansed by this action and Fordring uses the newly cleansed blade to force the lich king to retreat. It is after this confrontation that Fordring declrares a unification of the knights of the Silver Hand and the Argent Dawn to join as one and form a new Argent Crusade, furthermore Highlord Darion Morgraine renounces all ties to the Lich King and vows that he and his fellow Death Knights will fight against the Lich King and his scourge.
~ I hope this is clear and follows the lore... If anything is wrong please just let me know and ill gladly edit it ^.^!
I went to SM cath, with my corrupted ashbringer a few weeks back, and it worked perfectly.
Silly people claiming it doesn't, just because it doesn't trigger on a private server (of suck).
Actually there is a possiblility that a person could get this and the old naxx gear, in strat UD there is the old raid portal to the left of the slaughter house. Blizzard never deletes anything major they design, in case they ever want to use it again. I would look at a way of getting into it. (Without hacking would be smart).
Not much of a correction, but I think the first line it whispers is "I was pious once." instead of "pure".
Does this sword proc the whispers for anyone anymore? I always use mine with ambiance maxed with decently high volume and it doesn't proc :[
i personaly think blizzard should have keeped this wepon available for players at the lv 60 version or make a new lv 80 version of it just cuz i think this wep looks so cool and players who havnt experianced the SM scripted event are missing out on alot
look at gorehowl, too
would be epic for a DK :(
Looks like its
for all the corrupted ashbringer holders ]:
Blizzard changed the lore that Darion went to Naxxramas and killed his father and looted the sword and well we all know what happened then..
So now all your swords just sit in the bank like
.. Would be nice if they made the Old ashbringers into Hierloons :)
Ashbringer Quest chain
blizz should add a new short rewardless quest for the players who missed the scripted SM event now that the corrupted ashbringer is not attainable anymore.
my guess is that when players reach......... say............. lvl 50, they could talk to some nameless NPC outside of SM, it could be called "Ghost of the past" this ghost offers a 1-time only quest where you enter the cathedral, and you see a living version of Darion Mograine with the corrupted ashbringer, walking down the halls of the cathedral.
and when he get's to where renault is, the ghost of Mograine senior does the whole scripted event of death and redemption, after all of this darion talks to fairbanks, and after the player has the dialog, darion ports you out and that's it, the ghost is phased out so u can't take the quest anymore.
to make it fair, this quest won't have any rewards, only the chance to see this nice event.
why I want this? because I like many other players started playing wow after WOTLK, and thus, I have missed one of the finest events on the game.
by adding this "ghost" that allows players to relive the scripted event in the cathedral, blizz ensures that all players get to enjoy their lore, and not just those that were arrount in vainilla wow doing naxxramas (wich were very few actually)
The Ashbringer is the sword of former Highlord Mograine of the Scarlet Crusade. The blade was named after Mograine and his uncanny ability to smite the undead to nothing but a flurry of ash. Mograine was betrayed and murdered by his son, Renault, with the sword. Recently it has been discovered that Mograine was reincarnated as a Death Knight by the lich Kel'Thuzad, and he still possesses Ashbringer, although it has been defiled by his murder and transformed into Corrupted Ashbringer.
After the Silver Hand was dissolved following Arthas' betrayal, the remaining leaders formed the Scarlet Crusade. Mograine was appointed to the head position of Highlord, and Ashbringer became the most lethal weapon in the Crusade's arsenal - so much so that it quickly garnered the attention of Kel'Thuzad.
Balnazzar, in the newly possessed body of Grand Crusader Saiden Dathrohan, sought to use the Crusade as a machine against the Scourge and rectify the Burning Legion's past failure to defeat the Lich King. Mograine, however, potentially jeopardized his plans. Balnazzar made a pact with Kel'Thuzad to eliminate the Highlord: the bane of the Scourge would be destroyed, and Balnazzar's reign would continue unchecked. He corrupted Mograine's son, Renault, and made plans to set a trap for the Highlord. Renault led his father and High Inquisitor Fairbanks to Stratholme, where the legions of the Scourge awaited them. Renault fled and hid while Mograine and Fairbanks fended for themselves. Fairbanks eventually became trapped alive under a pile of corpses. Mograine alone continued to smite thousands of the undead with ease, but was eventually wearied and dropped his blade in fatigue. Renault came out of hiding to exploit his father's vulnerable state. He took up Ashbringer and slew his father, which simultaneously corrupted the blade by using it for such a treacherous act.
Unable to wield the corrupted sword, he left it with his father's body, and reported to the Crusade that it had been lost.
Renault's betrayal was witnessed only by the unseen Fairbanks, who could only listen in horror as Renault murdered his father. Fairbanks remained there until he regained enough strength to leave the besieged city. He fled to the Scarlet Monastery where he told of Renault's actions to anyone who would listen. Those who believed broke away from the Crusade and formed the Argent Dawn. but alot of guys wouldn't believe him and killed him. His body was thrown in a hidden chamber in the Scarlet Cathedral. That is the story of the ashbringer. Yes i copy and pasted, but thats the info for ya!
Too bad you can't get it anymore QQ.
Wanted this on my DK =(
Cant get these anymore:(
It's a shame to lose the Ashbringer event. Blizzard decided it has to be removed, because the player basically takes the role of Darion and that's a big lore no-go.
Though i still think it could be remade into a great CoT 5-man or maybe use the Caverns of Time for one-man quests? Joining Darion as AD volunteer/s to Naxx where he fights the Four Horsemen and takes the Ashbringer. And then go to SM with him and see the scripted event. (All while fighthing off interfering Infinite dragonflight yadayadayada). Or play as Darion, i don't know. There are lots of possibilities with a great tool like the Caverns of Time, i don't see a valid reason not to preserve this event.
I cant believe it. the most lore based weapon ever and bliz stop us fom getting it. :(
where do you get the corrupted ashbringer?
"You will never be able to cleanse the Corrupted Ashbringer."
Taken from Q&A of the Class Discussions panel @ Blizzcon 2009.
and you cant get this sword it's No longer available to players what i know it was quest reward
just have to hope blizz make a CoT for the old 40 man naxx realy so we can get the sword again but that would be doing something right for a change so it prob never happen they not that nice.
So whay did they take this weapon out its like the coolest weapon in the game i want it!
I think they should bring it back as a lvl 80 weapon increase damage and effects, then put out tons of mission for YOU to purify the thing back to the ashbringer to add to the story not just take it away and laugh at those who almost got it. BRING IT BACK BLIZZARD!
Who was it dropped by?
People who love to learn about WoW's Lore say .. ME! :D
It's just exciting to know about your favourite game history and visit some cool places or maybe watch those clips included in the game!
I Like the Lordaeron sign on that. ;)
The Frostmourne will Not drop in the incoming Patch, you will get Shadowmourne ( Legendary 2h sword with x3 red socket gem rooms:o ) Or it will just be part of the long long way long questline you have to do. mmo-champion.com read about Shadowmourne there and other stuff
Question: Can you get corrupted Ashbringer ?
this would have been a brilliant DK sword
Screwattack.com added this baby to their hall of fame of weapons; THE ARMORY!
No Idea how he got this
The Ashbringer is a weapon that has interested me since I first heard of it, back in Pre-BC (which was when this game was the best in my opinion, but I'm getting off topic). Unfortunately, original Naxxramas was closed after the release of Wrath of the Lich King, which sucks cause my shaman just hit 60 and I wanted to gear him for pvp, but whatever.
The Ashbringer would be a cool sword to enter into this game with a quest chain that requires you to do all the original Raids (40mans) but they are re-vamped to make them a lot more powerful (taking about 25 80s in ICC gear, etc) to be able to get the required items to create the Ashbringer, then when you have this Corrupted Ashbringer (a more powerful version of this of course), to kill the Lich King with it would cause Mograine to be set free, blah blah blah, and he will pass down the Ashbringer to you, making you the new ashbringer, and giving you the title of "<NAME>, The Ashbringer". Would be pretty sweet, till everyone got this item and just /facerolled over everyone in PvP.
I can understand why Blizzard isn't going to release this to anyone (or Frostmourne) but it would be awesome to have either one of these swords. I think that more weapons such as this should be introduced to World of Warcraft. The Corrupted Ashbringer let you do a side-quest lore thing in SM, where you were friendly with the Scarlet Crusade (a reputation unattainable without this sword) and it caused everything to be completely different when using it (in this instance and when around people of the Argent Crusade, which NO other weapon does). I think it would be a really cool idea for Blizzard to release something like this either just before we are able to fight the Lich King, or shortly after the release of Cataclysm.
Blizzard, thanks for releasing this awesome weapon, but I'm curious.. Why enter this item into the game, then when you re-release Naxxramas as an 80 raid, why did you remove this item, and the weilder from the game entirely?
Would be epic to have the world first on Arthas encounter be with a killing blow from a Corrupted Ashbringer.
this is true, however it wasnt taken away from the people that got them, thus still letting the event in SM to be played
The Ashbringer's handguard is the Lordaeron crest.
A video of the actual event in Scarlet Monastery
. Pretty badass in my opinion.
while goofing off making a new DK just now, I went AFK standing next to Darion Mograine while inside Acherus before you even leave it to start questing and heard all the Ashbringer quotes that the sword would make. Its nice to see they kept these useful in game somewhere.
Want. This. Sword. So. God. Damn. Bad.
As much as I hate to, I agree with Bliz for keeping it out in WoLK, noobs everywhere would be running around with what is pretty much one of the strongest blades lorewise...but still want this #$%^& on my warrior. ><
ok this may be a redundant question but im 2 lazy to read all the comments how did you get this in game was it a drop or a quest reward
i lold at the video of the ashbringer when the dwarvs said " One beer per kill" and then "Okay you greedy bastards 2 beers per kill!"
I have a few questions:
1. The Scarlet Monastery/Corrupted Ashbringer Event works only once?
2. If you're in party, everyone can watch the event?
3. If you don't have the achievement kill count for Scarlet Commander Mograine, the fact this event one-shots him will count for the achievement?
4. Do the Argent Crusade members also get temporarily Hated when using the sword?
it would be so epicly awesome if they re-introduced this blade in cataclysm, and maybe upgraded it a little (;
I would think -25 stamina is a small price to pay for the best weapon in Vanilla WoW.
Awww... I don't get why it isn't available to players anymore. I really wanted that sword. I mean, can't it be a reward from some quest that Highlord Darion Mograine gives out or something? I get that Tirion is supposed to get it, but if you haven't noticed, some things conflict like that. Like how Taelan somehow aged 15 years in a decade:
"Taelan's age seems to have undergone a retcon, given that he is only five at the time of Of Blood and Honor, yet an epilogue shows him at the age of 20 being inducted into the Knights of the Silver Hand. However, given that less than a decade passes between Of Blood and Honor and World of Warcraft, exactly how Taelan could have aged 15 years in this time is a mystery. This is further compounded by Tirion stating in a quest line that he gave Taelan the toy hammer when he was seven, the circumstances of which indicate that Taelan was aware that his father was still alive. During the time of Lands of Conflict, which occurs around a year before World of Warcraft, he was said to be 34 years old."
Copy and pasted from WoWWiki.
I hate that you cant get this anymore, i got WoW just before LK launched and was very disappointed when i found out you wouldn't be able to obtain this after LK
Someone with this item get 2 low level people to join a random for Scarlet Monastery, one as a leader, and have the other log off, kick them, then invite the person with the ashbringer
I'd love to see the reaction on the peoples faces heh
this item doesnt exists anymore:(
i dont know if anyone noticed this but while you are a death knight and mograine has this sword you occasionaly hear the whispers of the sword however there very faint i think it might be because your doing the will of the litch king through darion mograine meanding that by being associated with it you are under the will of the ashbringer
This item will currently bug under extreme circumstances when putting random enchants on, giving it the appearance of the original Ashbringer wielded by npc's. Due to the obscurity of this item I'm sure it just hasn't been seen enough, but odds are it will be fixed sometime soon... enjoy roleplaying as Mograine while you can and don't relog!
Ok i understand is not aviable in Cataclysm.. but cna i get it in Wot LK? Because i want it :D if someone can tell me please i really want this sword :S
i dont think this would be a very good sword to have if your a paladin
am i the only one who wishes they could have for their Death Knight? :\
I kept my DKs starting gear just because i liked the looks of it
even though its "impossible" to obtain now, and DKs never had a chance of getting it :(
I hope Tirion passes the sword along.. or dies thus becoming Corrupted again. The sword should be in the players hands!
With the upcoming service of
, I hope to see this item once again.
I wonder if you can duel wield a unique weapon skin like this as a fury warrior.
-25 Stamina? Is that to counterbalance the proc or is it supposed to be +25?
You now see the Hilt of this sword as the L from the Lorderon Crest, you cannot unsee
This sword has been my favorite 2h sword since i started playing this game in vanilla, sadly i was never fortunate enough to get the blade, now i can only hope that blizzard does a Caverns of time event in which you protect the younger Mograine as he kills his horsemen father and takes the blade, hopefully having a model of the sword as loot so that my death knight can finally hold the blade of the High Lord while riding on his son's crimson death charger
Corrupted Ashbringer won't be available for transmogrification.
Well thats too bad news for you guys on patch 4.3. HAH
Too bad, "Corrupted Ashbringer won't be available for transmogrification."
I'm sure the comment said
won't be available for transmogrification from any vendor.
from any vendor
being the prominent part meaning it wont be obtainable but still could be used if you already have was how I looked at it
I'm not seeing anything in the current rules that would exclude
from being transmogrified, or from being the source of a transmogrification.
There's a Paladin in my guild who has this. He's looking forward to 4.3 :p
Its a terrible shame this sword is no longer available... One of my favorite swords in the entire game. :\ Give anything to bring it back.
I can confirm that the
does in fact proc the whispers that you can manually listen to via scripts. I was swinging on a target dummy for several hours with a guild member nearby and he heard it as well. So I guess it is not broken, just a very low proc rate. This is as of patch 4.2.2 on live realms.
I can confirm that Corrupted Ashbringer is Transmogable. Omok from Burning Blade is dual wielding them, transmogged over Masterwork Elementium Deathblade.
this is a comment on iamtheomen's thing... i just seen a dk with this standing in stormwind today. one question i have is how was he able to get it?
i wish blizz have a patch in MOP expansion called the return of the ashbringer and both corrupted and ashbringer drops aah i wish they would do that like it if u want to make blizz see that
(good old days never die)
poeple there is a chance of bringing back this weapon in MOP there will be Scarlet Monastery heroic mode i think they will this weapon back plz vote this comment so everyone can see it thank you
Imagine if you had this to transmog. in 4.3 +
It should be a way to get this sword or go to old naxx. There are a lot of items to cool transmogrification like this one.
And this is a lvl 60 raid from classic wow. I don think a lot of people today have this sword. Isnt unique becouse they try hard to get it, is unique becouse they played first or could get the chance to do it.
ran into a pally named ash with this weapon transmogged and he looks epic just reminds me the 2 times it dropped on my server at lvl 70 was the weeks i didnt make the raid..
one of the players who got it was nice and showed me the SM cath event that procs when u walk in with this weapon on.
i want this sword- ive wanted this sword since i first laid my eyes upon it, @#$%ing blizzard, id buy a toon if they had this sword, ive never delete it not even for a billion $, this is a 1 one a kind now and the rarest thing youll ever see
why did they remove it?
EDIT: He has apparantly removed or leveled it up, he used to have it transmogged on his heirloom.
The character "Alexandròs" on outland realm EU has this item transmogged on his level 60 DK, don't really know how this possible tho.
(He approved of me using his name on wowhead, have it on printscreen)
He has it transmogged on his heirloom sword, that is bound to battle net account and have sent it after he transmogged it on his other char, brilliant! :)
Looks really nice I have to say!
So now we have proof, it is "transmogable"! ;)
Good news for people that owns it, the rest of us simply has to drewl lookin at people with it! :<
I wish there was a way to isolate the freaky background audio behind Alex's whispers; lore says that's the Lich King murmuring back there, and I would so love to hear what trollan he's getting up to.
The NPC Highlord Darion Morgraine in the DK starting zone has this sword equiped, and if you stand by him long enough you can hear it speak.
If you enter the Scarlet Monastery having Corrupted Ashbringer equipped and go near Fairbanks you will revive him to his former human condition. :)
Pretty cool :D
Note: Due to the update in MoP to SM, this no longer happens.
POSSIBLE SPOILER ::::
hopelfully they will make this an item that will be popping up on the new "Black Market Auction House"
i would pay 100.000 Gold to get my heads on one that is for sure
if people want to know about it some more there are some spoilers on MMOchamp
Kwazi on frostmourne is rocking this, Saw him the other day in LFR, Think he's in there a bit so keep an eye out for him
Ashbringer exists in WoW?
Why, oh why, did they have to take this out of the game?
It *is* transmog-able. Both Greengoo (A) and Omok (H) have one on Burning Blade USA, both have it transmogged. The buff and the whispers do NOT activate on a transmogged weapon though.
I really want! :D
ashbringer is no longer in the game it is now a GM thing
Don't know if you wanted picture proof or anything, but here is "Necri" on Outland-EU with that blade transmogged. Looks pretty awsome if you ask me.
how come Corrupted Ashbringer it not a leagendery?
Sound script for " Kill, them, ALL! "
i hope they add this to the black market auction house
They should have made it again in the new Naxx, i
blizzard for doing this to me... im a major collector and this would be a awesome weapon in my collectoin along with my thunderfury+warglaive, and my outfits, bring it back blizz! or make to regular ashbringer obtainable!
Heres me wielding ashbringer, hope you like it.
Used to be a hunter weapon XD
Hey you guys should make the dark purple crystal craft an new weapon also i got an birthstone is like an well it look like 100% like the tale of past..purple crystals hey my crystal.., look like what made the ashbringer the pink quarts thhat i wear around my neck oh my gosh it look like the ryzbal crystal in tale of past... like my birth stone.. O.o
Why dont blizz make Ashbringer replica like about some items in darkmoon island i really hope they make replica in mop
This can actually be used to Transmog Soulbound drop items in instances and then traded to others Xrealm who are eligible for the loot without losing the look
I tried it earlier with my hunter who has the sword and a random
sucks for those of us that are not warrs or pally. would love this on my dk but dks were not around before it was removed and my 60 lock and shaman couldn't use this
Oddly enough this weapon was buffed in the latest patch for some reason. It is currently -24 stamina as opposed to -25.
Sadly the event in Scarlet Monastery Cath that was triggered by a player wielding this weapon was removed with the introduction of 5.0.4.
The only remaining *nod* to the event or the weapons lore can be found in 1 NPC in the new Scarlet Halls instance.
I will miss taking people on tours :(
I weep for not having this on my warlock now, that my *pet* could show his badassery.
this will probably get downrated cause it gose against the story line which is understandable but i relay think they should make way to obtain the uncorrupted ashbringer, perhaps through a caverns of time raid, make it a legendary(obviously) i was sooooo disapointed to see both that it wasnt on the BMAH and no longer was able to start that small event in the scarlet moastary, wish they just left that dugeon alone completely...
I would gladly spend one million gold if they added this to the black market...
Now that Scarlet Monastery has been revamped in MoP, can anyone confirm if the scripted event still exists? I will be so incensed if they took this epic interaction out of the game!
I've heard that Corrupted Ashbringer is now on the black market AH but I've yet to use BMAH yet so I can't confirm that. Someone said they saw it for 550k gold O.o
They should bring this back into the game XD
having this on my 60 twink warrior would be awesome, then i could have something to show off, since i havnt got legendarys. my brother took them...lucky bastard
people who leveled past 60 doesnt deserve this blade, if you have something like this you stay 60!
If you guys are wondering why the debuff went from -25 stamina to -24 stamina it's because the gun/relic slot has been taken away from the classes that could wield it (Warriors and Paladins NOT HUNTARDS), relics and guns almost always have stamina on them and blizz didn't want people to lose more stamina so they let you keep 1 stam point!
Where can I find Corrupted Ashbringer?
i clicked "find upgrades". a hand reached out of the screen and slapped me.
Imagine the gold this would cost if it was ever put on Black Market.
I hope they never add this to the black market AH...
Do I have it? - No.
Would I like to have it? - Yes.
Do I think it's too epic item to be given to anyone just for gold? - Yes.
I really get quite disappointed when I see that people want this weapon in the black market auctionhouse.
Do you guys honestly want to turn one of the most epic items in the game into a stick that screams "Look at how much money I am able to spend!"?
All the weapons character would be stripped away from it and then be known as just another item from the black market instead of an old and interesting relic of the past.
I dont know about you guys, but i rather have the corrupted ashbringer be a symbol history and mystery rather then a shallow symbol of wealth.
And belive me, i aint saying this because I have some unique snowflake syndrome, I simply think that this game could use a little depth once in a while.
Just to clarify, I do not own the sword myself, I just think it would be a shame to end the long storyline involving the weapon by having some random npc just out of the blue sell it on the black market just because some people think it looks cool or want yet another bling icon for their character.
And I really do wonder how that npc is supposed to sell a weapon that does not even exist in the first place in current lore.
This is not confirmed but... I don't see how else this death knight would have it: Link removed... she/he no longer has the mog :) But I swear it was there!
It's on the BMAH = /
This blade is truly amazing. The most legendary weapon in game. This is a bold statement, but its true. Proof? Well, for 1, it has more comments than Ashes of Al'ar, which is easily THE most hunted mount in the game. It is also has more lore than any single weapon in game (arguable with Frostmorne, but Frostmourne isn't obtainable by players). Furthermore, it got its legendary reputation because it dropped from one boss from a raid that was discontinued at the start of wrath. Now, you take into consideration that less than 2% of the world of warcraft player-base even experienced the original Naxxramas. And for those that DID experience the raid, who's to say who got to the 4 horsemen (bosses that drop the blade). And those that did, what if the blade didn't drop? So the rarity of this sword, combined with its lore, fame, and its special power that you gain when entering the scarlet dungeon, makes the single most legendary blade in the World of Warcraft.
Lvl 60 warrior with T3 and
this blade should have it's own "feat of strength" achievement...
I actually read the comic books that have to do with this weapon/story!
Ashbringer and Scarab Lord
best weapon model ever simple as that
they definately should not bring it back nor mogable, this along with the black qiraji resonating crystal and talisman of binding shard should remain vestiges of old and unobtainable
Its weird that no one has said this yet so I guess I must say it.
Adding this to the Black Market would be pretty epic
I'd pay every single gold on the black market AH to get this cool sword... why can't blizzard put this back ingame and make it a new part of the legendary quests that will come?
i would disenchant it :P
blizz should add a way to get this for vetren player like players that have played sence vinilla being that there is no real reword for playing sence then
Where did this weapon come? How does I get it? I saw Darion using this when I made my noobish DK! Was it Vanilla?
The weapon came from the four horsemen chest back when Naxxramas was a 40 man raid and required you to raid hardcore back in Vanilla and was slightly still difficult for endgame mains in Burning Crusade. (Not as difficult as AQ40 for BC)
You could HAVE gotten it back in World of Warcraft <-> Burning Crusade.
Darion Mograine has some long history with this weapon in a way. Papa Mograine wielded this weapon in a way not really, he actually practically created this weapon with the help of a dwarf. (You can see the scene in which Mograine complains about the Dark Shard burning his one hand though turning the undead around him into ashes in Southshore in the Caverns of Time; 70 BC instance.) Papa Mograine then wielded this ashbringer to slay the undead, he was the leader of the scarlet crusade back when they weren't ruled and corrupted by Balnazzar. He was then betrayed by his other son, who was originally the end boss of Scarlet Monastery before it got changed. The Priest who used to be in the "closet" was the priest who saw this betrayal as he hid under a hunk of corpses to save himself. Kel'Thuzad then resurrected Papa Mograine as a Death Knight to fight for him as one of the four horsemen. (Lore-wise) Darion raids the naxxramas with the champions of the light (You and the argent crusade) as he slays his own undead father, he picks up the corrupted ashbringer. Darion somehow becomes undead blah blah and that is how he wields as of now and then gives the only possession of his father now to Tirion. Terrible %^&*ing son.
Indeed, the Ashbringer was implemented in Vanilla, and kept until WotLK because it was unlorewise for players to have it. (People who have obtained it, still have it on them.)
DO NOT mention, or encourage private servers again.
With Corrupted Ashbringer
It is said that the core of the ashbringer (the yellow shining thing levitating cicle in the blade) is actually the core of a Naaru!Divined power creatures that in the end of their lifes become completely corrupted(with black color) In the tale,Ashbringer core was nothing but a BLACK crystal before it become pure by great power scarlet crusaders,the same black crystal appears in the roleplaying of Swp on death of Kil'Jaeden when Draenei leader appears,it appears to be the dark crystal of Entropius,a Naaru who got corrupted and died ,then the draenei leader achieve to purify it and a big light appears all over the place(just like while ashbringer core purification proccess),In conclusion,i am 99% sure that the ashbringer core is a Corrupted naaru crystal who got purified,so asbringer gained naaru's divine power and that's why it can kill any undead creature
Call me crazy but for some reason I feel as if the Devs would leave a way to get Corrupted Ashbringer in game for someone to one day stumble upon it just for laughs since everyone wants it so badly. Sort of like how people tried everything in Classic to try to find a way to Purify the Corrupted Ashbinger even though there wasn't really a way.
Clearly a DK weapon, just kidding hunter i mean.
Just saw a gnome warrior with it as transmog SO COOL :D
I am looking for a hord eplayer EU that have this sword, PM me plz
I just saw a person with Corrupted Ashbringer and a mogged one, the new Scarlet Monastary does NOT react, so a great piece is removed from game, Argent Crusade still hates you tho...
Recently I found a Death Knight on the Wyrmrest Accord server transmogging a lvl 20 axe to this, the Corrupted Ashbringer. As it was removed in WotLK and is not up on the Black Market Auction House, I'm perplexed by this. Anyone here know how the player could've gotten his Weapon transmogrified to look like this? I would love to re-aquire it on my warrior.
In my opinion best sword to have been in WoW. I would pay so much for them to bring it back!
Steel your heart, and your soul will shine brighter than a thousand sons! -
Says the man with a pre-corrupted sword.
Does anyone know why did the Argent Dawn hated (lore-wise) the holder of the Corrupted Ashbringer?There is no official answer for that.
My guess is that,since the Argent Dawn consists of ex-Scarlet Crusaders who heard Fairbank's warning (including that Renault Mograine stabbed his father with this weapon) ,they considered this weapon as a symbol of corruption.
Edit: Also,why all those downvotes?Did i broke a specific unwritten law or something?
is the most known vanilla weapon exluded from Naxx40 and everyone obviously wants this weapon back. it sucks that blizz replaced the horsemen that carried this.. fortunately, most of the weapons that drop here is remade into 200's-213's (sarcastically said) because they are easily replaced by Onyxia Lair gear, which is also remade for the 80's. Thnx Blizz, we liked this change.
anyone who still has this weapon automatically has over 9000 e-peen score
It would be a great transmog item
Seeing a DK with this would truly be a Feat of Strength, cough*
I would honestly give away all my gear for this item. Its a shame that it was removed.
Equipping this now would be beneficial, since the lifesteal is pretty amazing n.n
this weapon still in game
you can transmogrification
check this name in armory Gramtarzul
Well, this is odd. Mists of Pandaria, 5.4; Suddenly the Corrupted Ashbringer has +Hit rating on it.
Okay then! :V
It would be nice to have this on the BMAH.
Looking for the uncorrupted Ashbringer? Clicky ----->--->
I am almost positive that this can be bought in the BMAH, because in screen shot 34, that's a DK wielding it, look at the eyes, and he's also wearing the Acherus Knight's Hood. So either it's a hack, or he bought it off the BMAH.
"... the penalty for betrayal... is death!" -Renault
"Betrayal... You know a great deal about betrayal, son..." -Alexandros
"Father... It can't be! F-forgive me Father, I beg you!" -Renault
"You are forgiven..." -Alexandros
That scene in the comic was so bad@ss.
.......So much Jelly
I still have this on my Pally. Needless to say I have ppl lined up to kick my ass considering Paladin NEVER did DPS back then. Still xmog it to this day.
A sword with great lore behind it. Although the monastery event isn't working anymore, they should make this availabale in WoD through a long epic quest chain ( which leads you of course to Outlands ), and, if I may go further, the end of the quest chain should be cleansing it, thus receiving the Ashbringer. All quests could take place in Caverns of Time ( for obvious reasons, traveling to old Outlands and such ).
So i have Benediction on my priest... Can i please trade the staff for the sword to my paladin somehow :D ?
I have seen some death knights transmoged this i dont know how they did it this one for example.
Pretty sure I read somewhere (a Dev Diary maybe) that the author considered the inclusion of this item as a lootable reward "one of the biggest mistakes s/he had ever made over the ongoing development of World of Warcraft".
That's a pretty intense sentiment, but understandable given the lore behind the weapon, and that a player looting it doesn't really fit within canon. If I ever manage to find the link again, I'll attach it.
I wonder, this may be a dumb question, does this item pop in black market?
this sword appeared in the black market (EU Dun'modr) july 29 2014
i just found 1 character on outland who have it moged at hes sword...
Let it load hes profile plz
why is that sword removed :( its cool one or why old naxx is removed
I want that so bad for my warrior!
If you search this on blizzard's official site, there's a tab that says 'disenchants into'
U WOT M8?
Well i Just saw one Today with my OWN TWO EYES
Blizzard should make a replica of this sword. Ok, i understand that you can't get the Corrupted Ashbringer anymore because it was used in Wotlk's story with dks and blah blah blah. But the players should be able to transmog this cool sword (the best in my opinion and perhaps not only in my opinion, considering that other players also want this). However, this replica shoudn't be too easy to get (so that we won't see everyone with the weapon jumping around Goldshire) and we should do a long quest chain in order to get it or it should be a reward from the chalange mode dungeons. What do you say? C'mon stop removing all the cool stuff in the game, please. This could be also a reason for some former players to leave the game. Items in Mop were ugly as hell and the removing of old cool items was a big mistake.
I am not worthy to bask in his grateness!
Recorded this last night, in Stratholme after you've defeated Rivendare. As soon as I equipped the C.A they attacked me, just like in Light's Chapel and Menders Stead.
Corrupted Ashbringer was looted on patch 6.0.3! ---- type this on Youtube search to see the video (can't put the link here, sorry). Video uploaded by Takuhatsu
LINK IN THE REPLY
Recorded this last night on Eu server Outland. Just filmed my Stratholme solo...
Looted Corrupted Ashbringer from Lord Aurius Rivendare.
I don't know how it possible... I think it's some incredible lag or something...
Not sure that it still in my bagkpuck, as my gametime was expired. Hope Blizzard will not delet it.
Also, there was a whispers... But I heard that it was deleted and even player from vanilla don't hear it anymore.
This is so many players favourite weapon, it sure is a shame it is not longer available. What i would love to see if they against the odds should add a replica: Make it very hard to get, something in the Insane style, so it is available to those who REALLY wants it. Because it would not be so nice to see everyone running around with it transmoged.
Fun fact: if you have this sword equipped in ICC, when initiating the Lich King encounter, Tirion Fordring will be hostile to you and is killable.
Doing so bugs the encounter and the Lich King will never engage you, however.
Can now drop from Big Create of Salvage
I was wondering if, with the salvage crates bringing back old items that were removed, if anyone had happened to get this sword yet?
this item makes me so incredibly sad. why? because my hunter has it. in bc we did a lvl 70 naxx raid for fun and it was ffa. i did the SM event a couple of times and wore the sword. and what did blizzard do?
they removed the sword AND the event and then went ahead and took melee weapons away from hunters.
so i would give my left nut to transfer this item to my paladin, considering that you can even transmog it now.
i am the saddest owner of a corrupted ashbringer. it is indeed a curse and i wish i had never gotten it.
back in vanilla/mid to end Mists of Pandaria this item used to be able to be disenchanted to
(The wow armory is still bugged saying it is still disenchant able)
Also this weapon used to have the stat that stated (-25 stamina) then later on it was reduced to -15 and then was just completely removed.
If someone thinks that this is removed from the game, you are wrong. There are still people who actually have this and are transmoged. I didn't saw one in the game but I saw it in the armory and it was fury warrior who had these in both hands. So keep believing guys :D
Corrupted Ashbringer was added to Diablo 3 as a legendary 2 handed sword in patch 2.2.0!
Special effect: Chance on kill to raise a skeleton to fight for you. Upon accumulating 5 skeletons, they each explode for 1000% weapon damage and the sword transforms into Ashbringer for a short time. Attacking with Ashbringer burns your enemy for 5000–6000% weapon damage as Holy.
You can watch it here:
they seriously need to bring this back for a limited time, with the quest to purify the Ashbringer and to get the legendary.
Vanilla Naxx in patch 6.2 :D
i saw one guy with this sword on draenor-eu :o
Has become a 2hander available in Diablo 3 :)
Our prayers have been answered ( well , sort off ).
This item's stat bonuses were recently changed. The item used to give -25 stamina as a part of the blade being corrupted. This has now been removed.
in the next expansion, Legion (expac #6), not this rendition, but a whole new version of the Ashbringer will be available to players as an Artifact weapon, a new type of weapon different from the old gm ones. It will be available to Retribution paladins and according to gamescon 2015 it will be picked up from where it fell on the Broken Shore in the Broken Isles. Tirion's fate atm is unknown but it would be best to assume the worst given the wording.
Blizzard cares about Cashbringer more than Ashbringer nowadays :>...
Unfortunately for anyone that was able to get their hands on this sacred item before it was removed...get ready to see clones of it in Legion. The item is still precious but the looks are about to become near pointless to have as a transmog anymore :/
Figured I'd have that quote from way back then because it makes that much more sense nowadays.
RIP all the major lore weapons.
Something that makes me sad is the fact that you can get pretty much everything from Vanilla Naxx off the BMAH
A new version of this blade has been found in the Legion alpha data files:
I saw someone in LFR today with a weapon transmogged to this.
Is there ANY way anything can make it back to live servers from PTR or alpha testing - or is this just a player who has been around a long time & was very lucky, a long time ago ?
Yes - I did inspect his gear - I didn't just see something that looked like this.
Ah, the sweet irony of Blizz to remove this from the game, give it to Tirion Fordring and then in Legion giving it to every single ret paladin.
I wish we could go back and see the events that have been removed from the game (this amongst other events) in Caverns of Time. Please, Blizz ?
More like ass bringer. The swords a fun toy. :3
For all those who have been searching for the script for this weapon, here is the basic one:
I literally JUST saw a death knight (Adonse-Moon Guard) with this weapon.
back in vanilla, the stats from before, it said "-25 stamina" and wikipedia says "this is a good weapon because of its high stamina and usefull for warriors and paladins" i didnt really get it, because its a minus not a plus, and it was my first time seeing a negative stat on gear
enables a proc for the deceased Highlord Mograine to whisper one of twelve sayings to the wielder:
"I... was... pure... once."
"Fought... for... righteousness."
"I... was... once... called... Ashbringer."
"Betrayed... by... my... order."
"Destroyed... by... Kel'Thuzad."
"Made... to serve."
"My... son... watched... me... die."
"Crusades... fed his rage."
"Truth... is... unknown... to him."
"Scarlet... Crusade ... is pure... no longer."
"Balnazzar's... crusade... corrupted... my son."
"Kill... them... all!"
Fair warning: If you see anybody trying to sell this transmog now, it is 100% a scam.
Since 7.0.3, the infamous transmog glitch that would allow you to trade transmogged items will no longer work.
How it was done: The person with CA would party with another player
on another realm
, enter a dungeon looking for a two-handed weapon, the CA wielder wins the weapon, mogs the weapon with CA, then trades it to the other player, exploiting the 2hour blue text trade eligibility. This only worked cross-realm and didn't work on the same realm.
Unfortunately, they've created extra countermeasures to transmog in-that you must equip the weapon to transmog it, and by doing so forces the weapon to be bound to the character, removing the blue text. Additionally, you may now only place a transmog on an item that is bound to the character. You cannot place a transmog on an item that is not soulbound i.e. some white/grey vendor item.
I still have This sword, and with The introduction of wardobe, its just brilliant...
How I wish my Paladin could wield this, listening to the whispers of the tainted Mograine. I know that we've been given out Ashbringer and it has a secret
, but it's just not the same. Heck, I am not sure if I even like the updated model more than this. This blade is so unique, in so many ways. I can only hold onto my futile hope!
Just wondering if this sword made it into account-wide transmog system of Legion. Would love to see some pictures of an actual Death Knight running around with the Corrupted Ashbringer, Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade and Crusader title.
these comments make me chuckle, especially the ones praying for a comeback.
much better corrupted look for it than the one you get for the artifact.
Does somebody have this in their transmog system? I have not seen anybody with this
Someone needs to visit Paladin Order Hall with this one, just for the sake of it.

When wielding the Corrupted Ashbringer, players could hear the whispers of both Alexandros Mograine and

12 whispers can be heard, telling the sad tale of betrayal and sorrow that befell Alexandros Mograine, the "Ashbringer".

Whispers of the Corrupted Ashbringer
The whispers can be heard ingame, by typing scripts, those are in the description of the video above. (I did not type them here, because they are lengthy)
Imagine being one of the few people in the world with this prestigious transmog item, I have nothing but respect for those who have it.
Can you obtain this Item through Black Market Auction House?
Sometimes I just get nostalgic or whatever and I come here to look at it, read the comments, and sometimes cry a bit. xD
In Wrath there was a warrior who had Scarab Lord mount and even this weapon and he brought me along to the Scarlet Monastery, so even though i never had the chance to get this weapon, I did manage to see the secret event it unlocked "in person" really cool memory from Wrath. Hoping I will get a chance in getting this someday with Classic looming in the horizon.
I tried looking up the warrior since then on armory but he either changed his character name or quit the game. If you ever see this and recognise my character name, thank you for taking me along on the journey :)
Soon, my love. Soon.
Give us corrupted ash bringer appearance, I will return to the game :) 2023
Literally everyone wants this item so Blizzard gives everything except the CA. They had to know this would only serve to raise everyone's anger instead of happiness for the old xmogs.
