Objectives Edit

Retrieve the Moldy Tome and Tattered Manuscript for Krom Stoutarm in Ironforge.

Description Edit

It was lost, but there's some idea as to where it might be found. There was only one copy ever made and it was vandalized at some point, a large portion of it ripped from the binding. Rumor has it that it somehow passed into the hands of the centaur of Thousand Needles. The rest was lost off the coast west of Southshore, where it was to be transported to Menethil Harbor by boat. It never arrived. In exchange for this knowledge, all I ask is that if you find it, bring it to me to see.

Progress Edit

Did the rumors prove true, <name>?

Completion Edit

Fantastic! Now I may join the ranks of the few that have spied its contents. I can't wait to further peruse this text. This is a great day, <name>! If you will just allow me to glance at it before you leave. I'm sure that Strahad will be willing to send me a copy.

Gains Edit

Upon completion of this quest you will gain:

  • 2450 XP (or 15Silver at level 70)


The Tattered Manuscript is in Splithoof Hold (entrance at 44,37) in Thousand Needles. Follow the right side path until it loops back and looks like it joins. It is in a battered chest found inside, on the high level of the cavern.

The Moldy Tome is in the Hillsbrad foothills, south of the Azurelode Mine (west of Southshore) at a murloc camp on the beach located at 27,72.
