In this guide, you are going to learn how to obtain and use Shadowmourne for transmogrification in Visions of N'Zoth.


How to Obtain Shadowmourne

Shadowmourne Icon Shadowmourne is a Two-Hand Axe that you can obtain from Icecrown Citadel. Expect to spend at least a couple of weeks before completing the quest line. The rewards definitely make it worth your while, because on top of obtaining the weapon, you will also receive cosmetic rewards which you can keep or sell on the Auction House for Gold. Note that you will not be able to obtain the weapon alone, because one step requires the input of at least two other people.


Reaching Friendly with the Ashen Verdict

Switch raid difficulty to 25 Heroic and kill all trash at the entrance up to Lord Marrowgar. Leave the raid and right-click your portrait to reset all instances. Enter Icecrown Citadel and repeat this step again until you have reached Friendly with the Ashen Verdict.


The Sacred and the Corrupt

Talk to Highlord Mograine located on the right side of the room as you enter Icecrown Citadel. For The Sacred and the Corrupt quest, you will need to:

  • Obtain 25 Primordial Saronite Icon Primordial Saronite which you can buy on the Auction House or from Legacy Justice Quartermasters in Dalaran and Icecrown Citadel for 135 Gold each at Friendly.
  • Retrieve Light's Vengeance Icon Light's Vengeance from a cave in Dragonblight (74, 24).
  • Kill Festergut and loot Festergut's Acidic Blood Icon Festergut's Acidic Blood.
  • Kill Rotface and loot Rotface's Acidic Blood Icon Rotface's Acidic Blood.
    • Try to avoid killing trash, because you will need it for the next quest.

Use the teleporter and head back to Highlord Mograine to turn in the quest and receive Shadow's Edge Icon Shadow's Edge.


A Feast of Souls

For A Feast of Souls, you must feed 50 souls to Shadow's Edge Icon Shadow's Edge which is why you have kept the trash alive. Unequip all your gear, equip Shadow's Edge Icon Shadow's Edge and start killing trash mobs until you complete the quest.


Unholy Infusion

Shadow's Edge Icon Shadow's Edge must next be infused with Unholy power and this quest involves Professor Putricide. You must have Shadow's Edge Icon Shadow's Edge equipped and start the encounter. Hit the boss once, but do not damage him below 80% because that will trigger the next phase. Wait for Putricide to spawn three Slime Puddles. Then, head over to his table and drink the concoction. Trigger Phase 2 by slightly damaging him below 80% and when you are transformed into an Abomination, press the First Ability (1) on the Action Bar until you fill the bar on the right to full. Then, click the Fourth Ability (4) to infuse Shadow's Edge Icon Shadow's Edge with Unholy power.


Blood Infusion

Involves Blood-Queen Lana'thel and this portion of the quest line cannot be soloed, so you must bring in at least two people. We recommend bringing at least one class with self-resurrection capabilities. The objective is to bite three people and then kill the boss. Have Shadow's Edge Icon Shadow's Edge equipped and tank Blood-Queen Lana'thel. Wait one minute after the boss puts a debuff on you and bite the first person. The bitten person becomes mind-controlled and must be killed. Then, wait another minute and bite the second person. The first person needs to resurrect in the meantime. After that, you will bite the first person again (third bite in total). Kill the boss as you normally would to complete the quest after the third bite.


Frost Infusion

Have Shadow's Edge Icon Shadow's Edge equipped and stand before Sindragosa. The boss must perform her Frost Breath ability four times on you. Afterward, kill Sindragosa.


The Splintered Throne

Collect 50 Shadowfrost Shard Icon Shadowfrost Shards from Icecrown Citadel bosses to receive your Shadowmourne Icon Shadowmourne. This step is going to take a few weeks. Always complete the raid on 25 Heroic difficulty to increase the number of shards that drop each week.


The Lich King's Last Stand

Finally, defeat the Lich King who will drop a Sealed Chest Icon Sealed Chest. Go back to Highlord Mograine who will give you an Unsealed Chest Icon Unsealed Chest which contains:

  • Alexandros' Soul Shard Icon Alexandros' Soul Shard which is turned in for Reins of the Crimson Deathcharger Icon Reins of the Crimson Deathcharger;
  • Arthas' Training Sword Icon Arthas' Training Sword which is turned in for Muradin's Favor Icon Muradin's Favor;
  • Badge of the Silver Hand Icon Badge of the Silver Hand which is turned in for Tabard of the Lightbringer Icon Tabard of the Lightbringer;
  • Blood of Sylvanas Icon Blood of Sylvanas is turned in for Sylvanas' Music Box Icon Sylvanas' Music Box;
  • Jaina's Locket Icon Jaina's Locket which is turned in for a locket which opens a Dalaran portal.

All the items above can be sold on the Auction House.


How to Transmogrify Shadowmourne

If you own Shadowmourne Icon Shadowmourne you can visit a transmogrifier in any major city to use the weapon's appearance for transmog. Certain restrictions apply.


Transmog Restrictions

Shadowmourne Icon Shadowmourne can be transmogrified by Death Knights, Paladins, and Warriors. The character must be of level 70 or above to use the weapon appearance.
