Darlaran Agent will give you the Ariden’s Sigil, which you need to use to locate and defeat seven Dark Rider Elites. When you equip the Ariden’s Sigil and see the Dark Presence buff that is an indication of the presence of a Dark Rider.

Maelstrom Weapon Rune (Belt) – Shaman Class

Your character needs to be at least level 30 for you to attempt to obtain the Maelstrom Weapon Rune. If you meet the requirement, head to Razorflank and defeat Charlga Razorflank to receive a scroll and initiate a quest. Once you have successfully defeated Charlga Razorflank and obtained the scroll, go to Rau Cliffrunner in Freewind Post, Thousand Needles.

Then go to Tarren Mill, following the River north. Find Bath’rah the Windwatcher at /way 80.4, 66.8. Before talking to him, do /pray and he will give you 3 quests to find elemental items. To start the elemental items hunt, go to Desolace and collect 10 Wind Orbs from Wind Elementals. Then head to Dustwallow Marsh and collect 10 Water Orbs from Water Elementals.

Finally, venture into Bad Lands and collect 10 Earth Orbs from the Earth Elementals East of Kargath. 

Once you have obtained all 30 orbs return to Bath’rah the Windwatcher North of Tarren Mill, and bring Crystal Vial x1. Bath’rah will fill the vial for you. Take the vial and return it to Freewind Post. Give the filled vial to Rau Cliffrunner. Drink the vial and talk to the flight master in Freewind Post. Then defeat the Closest Caster, the Elite Water Elemental, and loot the eye. Return to Bath’rah the Windwatcher north of Tarren Mill to receive the Rune.

Sheath of Light Rune (Belt) – Paladin Class

The first step in obtaining the Sheath of Light is starting the Broken Hammer Quest. For that, you need to locate a Broken Hammer on the ground in Mannoroc Cove, Desolace /way 52.6, 84.8.

Once there, you will receive the A Lost Brother quest and then you need to go to Menethil Harbor in Wetlands. At the harbor speak to Harold Riggs on the docks, and then go to Newman’s Landing /way 18.0, 74.5 in Dun Morogh (you can reach there by swimming south from Wetlands along the coast). 

As soon as you get there, you will be attacked by enemies and will be required to kill them in order to loot the Orders from the Grand Crusader from them. Accept the Orders from the Grand Crusader quest and return to Stormwind to speak with Katherine the Pure.

After talking to Katherine the Pure, go inside the Scarlet Monastery Cathedral and defeat High Inquisitor Whitemane.
