Inv qiraj hiltornate
  • Battered Hilt
  • This Item Begins a Quest
  • Requires level 80
  • "This scratched and dented hilt once belonged to an ancient sword."

Battered Hilt starts the epic quest chain The Return of Quel'Delar quest chain.

It is the hilt of Quel'Delar, the high elf version of [Quel'Serrar].


This item drops randomly from both elite trash mobs and bosses in the Frozen Halls instances on heroic mode.


Since it yields by far the best weapons available outside of raids, this will commonly sell for large amounts of gold at the auction house.
