The Battered Hilt
|This is wear the guards get there clothes washed.
The hardest part about the entire quest is going to be running all 3 Icecrown instances and doing a quest item in the middle of each. "Hold on group, got the hilt quest to do."
Pit of Saron can be done in Normal mode (all can be done on normal.. Highly suggested, at least on my server because this was an immediate entrance. (Not the normal 15-minute Heroic random time for DPS.) I did not find all 5 infused sarronite until right before Ick, and it would have added a few minutes for me to run back. I wasn't about to hold up my group, so I ran back after killing Scourgelord Tyrannus to the forge and completed the quest. (not sure if this was because someone stuck around in group with me.) Just make sure to loot the quest item off Garfrost after the kill. All dead npcs disappeared after the completion (live ones we skipped did not).
|Frozen Halls turning in quest. Remember this place? I forgot.
Next Forge of Souls. This was easy. No interruption in the instance, no gathering. Simply toss the sword in the forge after the last boss fight, before zoning out.
