"The Ashen Verdict is a select group of the most talented craftsmen in the Ebon Blade and the Argent Crusade. Its creation symbolizes the unity of our forces as we mount this final assault on the Lich King and his minions. It is through the Ashen Verdict's efforts that we have discovered how to bend saronite to our will."
At friendly reputation with the Ashen Verdict, Ormus the Penitent, the death knight Tier 10 vendor, will offer the quest [80R] Choose Your Path, which will allow the player to choose one of the five paths. Like the rings provided by the Violet Eye, these will become progressively more powerful as the reputation increases.
Most trash mobs in Icecrown Citadel give 15 reputation (plus the bonus for Diplomacy if you're human). Some of the larger mobs, such as the Deathbound Wards and Deathspeaker High Priests, give 49 or 50. Most bosses give 250 (except for Gunship Battle, which gives 100), and defeating Sister Svalna, the miniboss who guards the entrance to the Frostwing Halls, gives 450, The Lich King gives 1500. The mobs of the opposite faction that you face between Lady Deathwhisper and the Gunship Battle don't offer any reputation.
