How to unlock Death's Bargaining Chip vendor?
Zackett Skullsmash is a vendor that exchanges Scourgestones for Death's Bargaining Chips. Zackett is located on the rafters above Thaddius's room and requires grappling through the room to reach. So, the first thing you need to do in Naxxramas is create a Makeshift Grappling Hook, which will be used to grapple around several points in Naxxramas. To create a grappling hook, you need to collect a few materials around Naxxramas:
Once you reach Zackett, he will be "sleeping", bored of life. You can try poking at him, but that won't do much. To wake him up, toss a Stratholme Holy Water on him. Once Zackett wakes up and berates you for it, he will give you a quest, Inconvenience Fee, which requires you to collect the following:
- x20 Invader's Scourgestone, drops from bosses in Stratholme and Scholomance;
- x10 Corruptor's Scourgestone, drops from bosses in Naxxramas;
- x3 Dark Rune, drops from mobs in Scholomance and Corrin's Crossing, can be purchased from the Auction House;
- x1 Black Coffee, sold by vendors in Shattrath/Stormwind/Dazar'alor, can be purchased from the Auction House.
Once you complete the quest, return to Zackett in Naxxramas and wake him up with another Stratholme Holy Water. Once the quest is completed, Zackett will move to the central ring of Naxxramas, where he will start selling wares.
Death's Bargaining Chip exchange
After Zackett Skullsmash moves to the central ring of Naxxramas, he will start taking Scourgestones looted from Naxxramas, Stratholme and Scholomance in exchange for Death's Bargaining Chip:
Make sure you have your Argent Dawn Commission equipped at all times to obtain Scourgestones of any type! If you dont have Argent Dawn Commission you will need to find Cracked Argent Dawn Commission. Cracked Argent Dawn Commission is found on a bone pile in the south-west corner of Rattlegore's boss arena in the Memory of Scholomance. If you already obtained your Argent Dawn Commission before it was lost to the Cataclysm, and you don't see the cracked commission, you can receive your original repaired commission from one of the Argent Dawn quartermasters, Argent Quartermaster Lightspark at Chillwind Camp or Argent Quartermaster Hasana at The Bulwark and selecting the "I need another Argent Dawn Commission" dialogue option. Otherwise, you must spend you will have to repair it with x1 Righteous Orb (drops from Scarlet Crusader mobs in Stratholme) and x4 Truesilver Bar (made by miners or alchemists).
Death's Bargaining Chip rewards
Zackett has a lot if items to sell for Death's Bargaining Chips:
How do i Craft Tier 3?
Creating Tier 3 pieces requires a lot of gold, luck and someone with an actual Tier 3 FoS Drop Dead, Gorgeous! Here's what you need to do in order to craft a Tier 3 piece.
First of all, you will need to buy Dented Raider's tokens from Zackett Skullsmash for x3 Death's Bargaining Chip per piece. Dented Raider's token give you a chance to get Lamented Crusader needed for Tier 3 transmog craft. The time you spend obtaining Lamented Crusader may vary depending on your luck. That is why you will need a lot of Death's Bargaining Chip. If you don't want to spend all of your time farming Death's Bargaining Chip for a random chance to get Lamented Crusader from Dented Raider's tokens, buy Death's Bargaining Chip Farm.
After you get your Lamented Crusader piece, you will need to repair the Lamented piece of gear by using one of the cursed Naxx items (Cursed Cloth, Languished Leather, Scourged Scales, Undeath Metal). The recipes to craft them can be obtained from Zackett Skullsmash for x20 Death's Bargaining Chip per recipe only by someone who has the achievement Drop Dead, Gorgeous from collecting a full Tier 3 set, but you can work order for these if you don't have the achievement. This will turn the piece into a Desecrated piece of gear.
Once you have a Desecrated piece of gear, you can purify it by using Phylacterweave (you can buy it for 2000 gold from Zackett Skullsmash) and Righteous Orb (drops from Scarlet Crusader mobs in Stratholme):
A complete set of Tier 3 armor will require 1400 Phylacterweave (or 2.8 million gold in vendor mats), 80 Righteous Orb.
