For the Twilight Highlands quest by the same name, see Quest:Breach in the Defenses (Highlands).

Objectives Edit

Kill 5 Lava Bursters.

Description Edit

Lava worms are bursting through the ground behind our lines, breaking our formations and allowing elementals to slip through. You'll find them scattered throughout our entire front to the north, and upon the Ashen Fields further out.

Stomp them back into their holes.


We're grateful for your support. Your presence on the battlefield gives us the time we need to refortify. Your efforts make all the difference.

Rewards Edit

You will receive:


Be especially mindful of the Bursters' Lava Shower ability, as this will eat away at health very quickly!
