The plethora of runes added to World of Warcraft: Classic during its Season of Discovery all have new and intriguing ways of obtaining them. The methods of obtaining these ability-granting items include: finding hidden treasures, killing unique monsters, and performing obscure rituals. Additionally, some runes can be discovered through doing covert favors for NPCs, or even completing secret quests.

Unlike some other rune-rewarding quests, the Dark Rider questline is not class specific, nor does it reward only one or two certain runes. The final quest of this line awards a rune specific to the class of the character that completes it.

The Rune Rewards

Where To Start The Dark Riders Quests

World Of Warcraft: Season Of Discovery - Dark Rider Questline Walkthrough

In order to find the Dark Riders and obtain your precious runes, you first need to travel to the place of their inception: Deadwind Pass in the Eastern Kingdoms.

The tower looming in the south of this zone, Karazhan, was where these former con-artist salesmen were cursed into their current state by Medivh, the last Guardian of Tirisfal. Suitably, the quests that send you to seek them out begin in the abandoned camp of their leader, Ariden's Camp.

Ariden's Camp is found at the back of a crag in the northeast corner of Deadwind Pass, just north of the road running through the zone. The entrance to this crag has direct access to said road, and the crag itself is short and free of any hostile mobs.

Once you reach this abandoned camp, you will find a friendly human mage NPC investigating the site. This Dalaran Agent will lament the theft of certain Dalaran Relics from the Kirin Tor's magical city by the Dark Riders, and will ask you if you'd like to help her recover these artifacts.

If you agree to her offer through her dialogue options, she will give you the Ariden's Sigil trinket,

which will allow you to find and confront the Dark Riders.

There are seven Dark Riders to find, and seven Dalaran Relics to retrieve from them. They are scattered across both the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor.

How To Use Ariden's Sigil

World Of Warcraft: Season Of Discovery - Dark Rider Questline Walkthrough

While the Dalaran Agent doesn't offer any official quests concerning the Dark Riders, she does say that they have dispersed across Azeroth, and that they normally will only be seen if they wish to be. Luckily, the trinket she gives you, Ariden's sigil, will force the Dark Riders to reveal themselves and become attackable when you use it.

All the Dark Riders are level 41 elite mobs, so bring a friend or two on your journey, or be several levels higher than them.

At each location where a Dark Rider lurks, they will be invisible. You will only know that they are present by two subtle phenomena occurring if you have Ariden's Sigil equipped. First, a greenish-purplish ghostly face will flash above your character's head.

Second, a buff will appear in the top right of your screen called Dark Presence. If you encounter these, use Ariden's Sigil to pull the lurking Rider out of hiding, and be prepared to fight.

The Dalaran Relics

World Of Warcraft: Season Of Discovery - Dark Rider Questline Walkthrough

With each Dark Rider dropping a different Dalaran Relic, we thought that a list of which Rider drops which Relic would be helpful in tracking which ones you need, should you split your journey up into different play sessions.

The Dalaran Relics are:

Dalaran Relic

Dropped By

Creepy Dalaran Relic

Dropped by the Dark Rider of Desolace

Curious Dalaran Reli

Dropped by the Dark Rider of Deadwind Pass

Glittering Dalaran Relic

Dropped by he Dark Rider of Duskwood

Heavy Dalaran Relic

Dropped by the Dark Rider of the Barrens

Odd Dalaran Relic

Dropped by the Dark Rider of the Swamp of Sorrows

Slippery Dalaran Relic

Dropped by the Dark Rider of the Badlands

Whirring Dalaran Relic

Dropped by the Dark Rider of Arathi Highlands

While none of these relics start a quest to bring them back to the Dalaran Agent in Deadwind Pass, upon bringing them to her, she will offer seven versions of the "Curious Dalaran Relic" hand-in quest.

Once all seven are handed over to her, she will then offer the quest "A Service to Dalaran". This quest is simply her showing you her thanks, as just talking to her completes it, awarding you one gold coin and a Supply Bag. Within this bag is your runic treasure.

You do not need to hand-in all of the Dalaran Relics at once. "A Service to Dalaran" only becomes acceptable once all seven are accounted for, however.
