There are actually various offhand items sharing the same model as the Eerie Stable Lantern, which are listed below. However, the reason for picking this particular model is that it is the lowest level item of the bunch which is available to both factions.
Since the Cataclysm revamp of Shadowfang Keep, then Lantern now drops from Lord Walden approximately 25% of the time, in normal mode.
Formerly the Lantern dropped from Fel Steeds in Shadowfang Keep. This may or may not still be the case, give that the item has now been assigned to a boss.
Here are the alternatives to the Eerie Stable Lantern which share the same appearance:
- Nolkai’s Lantern – An Alliance-only quest reward from Nolkai’s Words, started by Anchorite Paetheus in Bloodmyst Isle. The quest requires level 13.
- Beacon of Hope – A BoE drop zone drop from Uldaman. The drop chance is rather low, so be sure to check the Auction House before committing to an instance farm-fest.
- Lantern of Enchanted Flame – Considerably higher level than the other off-hands with this particular appearance, the Lantern of Enchanted flame is a quest reward available to both factions, from Valduran the Stormborn in The Storm Peaks.
The following shares the same appearance, but is no longer available:
- Explorers’ League Lodestar – Another Alliance-only quest reward, this time from Uldaman quest, The Hidden Chamber. The quest is available insisde Uldaman itself, from Baelog.
