For the Horde version, see Quest:The Battered Hilt (Horde).

This quest is part of the The Return of Quel'Delar quest chain Return of Quel'Delar quest chain.

Objectives Edit

Bring the Battered Hilt to Caladis Brightspear at Quel'Delar's rest, south of the Argent Tournament Grounds.

Description Edit

This battered old sword hilt has seen better days. Before the hilt was snapped from the blade, it must've been a magnificent example of the blacksmith's art.

The graceful symbols and exotic gemstones decorating the hilt suggest that the weapon may have belonged to a powerful person. Surely, the Silver Covenant members would be interested in hearing about the recovery of such an artifact. Seek out their representative at Quel'Delar's Rest, south of the Argent Tournament Grounds.

Rewards Edit

You will receive: 5Gold 80Silver

Progress Edit

What is it you have there?

Completion Edit

<Caladis takes the hilt from you and slowly turns it over in his hands.>

This seems somehow familiar, as though I should know its origins. You say you recovered this in the citadel? Most intriguing.

There are few who possess the ability to make such a blade. Perhaps they can tell us something about your find.


If the script event at Quel'Delar's rest is currently taking place, Brightspear will be unavailable. Wait until he returns to his waiting position before trying to turn in the quest.

Gains Edit

16550 XP
