How to get Winterspring Frostsaber from Rivern Frostwind

Rivern Frostwind is the primary NPC and quest giver for the Wintersaber Trainers, and he will also sell you the Reins of the Winterspring Frostsaber, once you hit Exalted reputation. He lives on top of a hill at 49.8 // 9.8:

Rivern Frostwind - Wintersaber Trainers
Rivern Frostwind – Winterspring Frostsaber Vendor

Neutral to 1500/3000

The reputation for the Wintersaber Trainers can only be increased with 3 different repeatable quests. At this point, only one of those quests is available:

  • Quest: Frostsaber Provisions
  • Objective: Collect 5x Shardtooth Meat & 5x Chillwind Meat
  • Reward: 50 Reputation

You can find the beasts that drop these meats in the plains just south-east of Rivern. If you want to get to Exalted with only this quest, you will need to complete it 420 times until you can buy your Winterspring Frostsaber.


1500/3000 to Exalted

Once you hit 1500 out of 3000 reputation with the second quest will become available. This quest is great because you can easily combine it with the Timbermaw Hold reputation grind. See the Timbermaw Hold guide for accurate locations for these monsters.

  • Quest: Winterfall Intrusion
  • Objective: Kill 5x Winterfall Shaman & 5x Winterfall Ursa
  • Reward: 50 Reputation

Honored to Exalted

Upon hitting honored reputation, you are about halfway towards your Winterspring Frostsaber! Another quest, this time elite, is available now:

  • Quest: Rampaging Giants
  • Objective: Kill 4x Frostmaul Giant & 4x Frostmaul Preserver
  • Reward: 50 Reputation

These giants can be found in the south, just north of the entrance to Darkwhisper Gorge. One big advantage of this quest is that the giants can drop the Recipe: Greater Frost Protection Potion. This Recipe will become more expensive and will be farmed more once Naxxramas and Phase 6 hit.
