<Grimand wipes sweat from his brow, beaming with a sense of pride.> There you are, my friend. This is some of my finest work - as good as the barding I personally made for Lord Shadowbreaker when he went for his own charger. I thank you for your trust in me to provide for you the best. No doubt Grayson will want to see the work for himself as well. Take your barding to him, and give him my thanks for his honorable business.
You're progressing along nicely, <name>. Once you have made your barding, you'll be well on your way to the next task.
This is most impressive work. It seems that as Grimand gets older, his craftsmanship continues to improve. That's quite the feat when his work was already some of the finest you'd find anywhere when he made my barding back in the day. While this barding would be a fine addition to any normal steed, we are not dealing with such a mundane beast. You'll need this barding blessed by an appropriate source for it to be worthy of resting on a <class>'s charger. I'll hold onto it for you until then.
Upon completion of this quest you will gain:
- Patch 1.5.0 (2005-06-07): The end of the Paladin Epic Mount quest "Grimand's Finest Work" now makes it clearer that Lord Shadowbreaker's acquisition of the Arcanite Barding is only temporary.
