Maalus, the Blood Drinker is a legendary ring which could be obtained by level 100 players after completing a lengthy chain of quests for Archmage Khadgar. This ring (and the quest which lead up to obtaining it) have been removed from the game, but players who previously earned this ring on a character can still use the item.


To obtain this legendary ring, players progressed through a lengthy chain of quests, requiring them to enter dungeons and raids multiple times. This typically took a couple of months to complete, even for the most dedicated players. The full chain of quests is as follows:

Upgrading the ring

This ring could be upgraded further from item level 735, to a maximum of 795. This was done by using a [Crystallized Fel], which would upgrade the ring by three item levels each time one is used. One crystallized fel could be obtained each week by players if they defeated Archimonde in Hellfire Citadel on Normal difficulty or higher, provided they already had a legendary ring. Additional crystallized fel could be purchased at any time from either Dawn-Seeker Krisek in Tanaan Jungle, or Zooti Fizzlefury in Talador at a price of 1,250 Valor Points.
