  • This item drops from any Champion Icebrood Quaggan. For example, it will drop from the Champion Icebrood Quaggans that can spawn during the second phase of Defeat the Claw of Jormag if the event is sufficiently upscaled.
  • In order for the Champion Icebrood Quaggan in Leopard's Tail Valley to spawn, the preceding event Rescue the quaggan from the Sons of Svanir must fail. Going after this champion may require warning off other players, looking for a relatively empty map, or waiting for a suitable distraction to see if the event is active.
  • The original Phial is not consumed by the corruption process and may be reused.


  • Prior to July 26th, 2016 the only way to obtain this item was from the champion at the listed event; you couldn't use champions from other events.
