Objectives Edit

Accompany Lady Sylvanas Windrunner to the Battlefield and defeat the Alliance!

  • Victory: Final and Absolute

Description Edit

Our armies clash across the battlefield. Crowley and his forces are losing ground and they do not yet know the fate of Lorna Crowley. We will meet with Crowley and his compatriots at mid field and I will present them with terms of their surrender. They will either accept or we will kill them all and leave their cities in dust.

As my most trusted soldier, you are to stand by my side during the exchange. Tell me when you are prepared to leave.

Rewards Edit

You will be able to choose one of these rewards:
Inv bracer 10
[Bracers of the Most Trusted]
Inv belt 37c
[Belt of Beginnings]
Inv boots 09
[Slippers of Unturned Loyalties]

You will also receive: 47Silver

Completion Edit

<Lady Sylvanas Windrunner grimaces in pain.>

This... is not over. Godfrey and his traitorous allies will pay for what they have done as will the remaining Alliance forces occupying Lordaeron.

Our work has only just begun.

Notes Edit

Sylvanas begins to sing, increasing movement speed of the party with High Warlord Cromush, Agatha, Arthura and Daschla.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Onward, <name>! We will beat back the Alliance dogs and secure Lordaeron for the Forsaken! For the Horde!
Accompany Lady Sylvanas Windrunner across the Battlefront.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner yells: Lady down your arms and surrender!
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner yells: I will leave your cities in dust and your lives in ruin!
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Look at them, <name>. They scurry like rats, veering headlong to their doom. Surely Crowley and Bloodfang can see the futility in this!
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: To the Greymane Wall! We will force their hand.
The party arrives at the Greymane Wall.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner yells: Crowley, your forces have fallen before my mighty army. You have lost!
Lord Darius Crowley along with Packleader Ivar Bloodfang arrives at the scene.
Lord Darius Crowley says: It's not over, Sylvanas. Not yet.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: You frivolously throw away the lives of your people while your own king sits atop his throne of lies, nary lifting a finger to help.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Is Gilneas worth the lives that have been lost? The lives that will be lost? You cannot win.
Lord Darius Crowley says: We will die trying!
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: And your daughter? You could have saved her... You could have offered her your blood, yet you did not. Why?
Lord Darius Crowley says: LORNA? What... Where is she!? What have you done to her!?
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Nothing, yet...
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: I now present you with a choice - a choice that I was never given.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: I offer you the life of Lorna for your unconditional surrender.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Choose your next words wisely, Crowley.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner yells: Bring her, Godfrey!
Lord Godfrey arrives at the scene, clutching the body of Lorna Crowley, along with Lord Walden and Baron Ashbury.
Lord Darius Crowley says: GODFREY! You deceitful maggot!
Lord Godfrey says: Hello, old friend!
Lord Darius Crowley says: Lorna... I... Release her. I will sound the retreat.
Packleader Ivar Bloodfang says: You can't be serious, Crowley. You miserable bastard!
Packleader Ivar Bloodfang runs back to Gilneas.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Release her, Godfrey.
Lord Godfrey says: Of course, mistress.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Now leave here, Crowley, and never return.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Lordaeron belongs to the Forsaken.
Lord Darius Crowley says: Forgive me, daughter...
Darius Crowley and his daughter runs back to Gilneas.
Suddenly, Lord Godfrey and his group moves toward Sylvanas, pulling up a gun and shoots her at point blank, killing her instantly.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner dies.
High Warlord Cromush says: WHAT HAVE YOU DONE, GODFREY!
Lord Godfrey says: Something that should have been done a long time ago, you filthy animal.
Lord Godfrey says: Gilneas belongs to me, and so soon will the rest of Lordaeron!
Lord Godfrey's group joins in combat, attacking Cromush and the val'kyr. Eventually they are defeated.
Lord Godfrey yells: This land will quiver and shake in the wake of our destruction!
High Warlord Cromush says: Fix her... FIX HER!
Agatha says: We are bound to her, sisters...
Arthura says: It will destroy us, sister...
Daschla says: It is our sacred duty. The pact was sealed, the bargain made...
Arthura says: Then let it be done.
The group of val'kyr resurrects Sylvanas, sacrificing themselves in the process.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: I saw... only darkness.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: And as I drifted towards nothingness, a brilliant light appeared, then another, and another... My dear val'kyr.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: I know now - beyond a shadow of a doubt - that the val'kyr are our future.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: We will never stop fighting for Lordaeron. Never...
