This quest was part of the Scourge Invasion which was a world event in Patch 3.0.2 that heralded the release of Wrath of the Lich King. Once the event has run its course the quest will no longer be available.


Grand Apothecary Putress wants you to give the Inv misc head scourge 01 [Dual-plagued Brain] to Apothecary Karlov in Orgrimmar.


We have a breakthrough! Our zombie specimens have given new insight into the nature of the Scourge's plague. They have born rotten, delicious fruit...

Take this box to Orgrimmar. Inside is a head that is infected with the zombie plague, and something else... an anti-plague. The two plagues battle within the zombie brain, and that brain is the key to a cure, I am certain of it.

Bring the box to my assistant, Apothecary Karlov. He attends Thrall in Orgrimmar.


You will receive: 2Gold 20Silver


Salutations, <name>. You come from Shattrath? You have instructions from Grand Apothecary Putress?


Ah, very good. The diseases this rotted head carries are deadly, but we must not shy from danger or from what we find distasteful. Some day, <name>, you will learn that damnation is the path to salvation...
