Skeletal Fragments is part of The Key to Scholomance quest chain quest chain.


Bring 15 Skeletal Fragments to Apothecary Dithers at the Bulwark, Western Plaguelands.


The key to Scholomance is called a Skeleton Key. It must be forged from the remains of a skeleton - several actually - and hardened by only the strongest of metals within a suitable mold. A signet of power from a being who naturally can open the portal to Scholomance will make the key ultimately function.

First thing's first though, <name>. We'll need skeletal fragments for the key's forging. Skeletons inside Andorhal should yield what we need, but the ones outside the walls might work too.


Kill many and kill often, <class> - we'll need a decent supply of suitable skeletal fragments to make up the outer layer of the key.  They don't call it a Skeleton Key for nothing, you know.


This'll work, <name>!  My turn now - I will imbue these with a suitable temper that will allow them to survive the intense forging process they will eventually go through.

The next step will be to get an appropriate mold for the key.  I know a goblin blacksmith in Tanaris that has in the past made molds for similarly macabre items.  He works for whom goblins usually work for - the highest bidder.


Upon completion of this quest you will gain:

  • 6500 XP (or 39s at level 70)
