Deathstalker Commander Belmont says: Excellent. Now, to plague this area and move on to-
High Warlord Cromush ports in.
Deathstalker Commander Belmont says: Cromush! What're you doing here? This is a covert operation!
High Warlord Cromush says: Unless I'm mistaken, the Warchief explicity forbids using the full plague, no matter the circumstance.
Deathstalker Commander Belmont says: My apologies, Cromush, but I assure you there is no problem. We are using an extremely diluted plague.
Deathstalker Commander Belmont says: In fact, it really only serves to scare off the worgen from trying to follow us in here. It's completely harmless.
High Warlord Cromush says: Then I'm sure you won't mind if I accompany you on your mission.
High Warlord Cromush says: Be warned, Belmont. If I find out that you're lying...
High Warlord Cromush says: You'll see the Warchief's wrath firsthand.
Deathstalker Commander Belmont says: But of course. We have the Horde's best interests in mind, sir. These heroes were just about to continue on and kill Springvale for us.
