The Mithril Order is an association of Mithrilsmiths — artisan blacksmiths who specialize in working with Mithril. Members of The Mithril Order can be found in Horde, Alliance, and Neutral cities. The Order appears to be a part of the larger Thorium Brotherhood faction, but you do not gain reputation with the larger faction by helping them or doing their quests. The leader of the order is Galvan the Ancient.
