- Class: Rogue

How to Get the Deadly Brew Rune
To obtain the Deadly Brew rune, you will first need to reach level 20. You will receive a letter in the mail, “An Offer” from someone named C. It is recommended that you wait until at least level 22 to proceed so you can learn Distract and Vanish, which will make your mission much easier. Putting 5 points in Master of Deception will also make this easier, especially if you choose to go right at level 20.
Having received the mail, head to Pyrewood Village in Silverpine Forest. Near the entrance there will be a small house with a chest inside (47.1, 71.1). Loot it to start the quest The Horn of Xelthos.
Next, Head to Stonetalon Mountains and speak with Veenix, a goblin on the western side of Windshear Crag (58.2, 51.7).

Bring the work order back to Veenix and he’ll give you a Breaching Charge.
Head back to Silverpine Forest and enter the Shadowfang Keep dungeon. You must be alone for this – the mobs you need will not spawn if you are in a party. Alliance players will want to be extra careful here because the closest graveyard is at Southshore in Hillsbrad Foothills, which is quite a run.
Stealth your way through the first part of the dungeon to the closed door that leads to the courtyard and use the Breaching Charge to open it without killing the first boss. Continue to stealth through the courtyard and enter the kitchen. Distract can be useful here for getting past some of the mobs.
You are looking for two new rares: Gemela and Gefell.
When you have both half-keys, you can combine them into a Twin Key. Be sure to do this somewhere safe since using the item will take you out of stealth.
Head back down to the courtyard and enter the stables. Look for a chest and use the key on it to loot the Horn of Xelthos.
Go back to the house in Pyrewood Village where you started the quest and turn it in. The next time you’re in a city, you will receive another letter from C telling you to return for your reward. Head back to the little house at Pyrewood Village one more time to pick up your rune. (Unfortunately you do need to go to a city and then return to the house, the letter doesn’t seem to arrive otherwise.)
