The quest Escape from Durnholde asks you to help Thrall free his friend Taretha.


When you are ready to proceed, let Thrall know. Follow Thrall out of Durnholde Keep and help him free Taretha and fulfill his destiny.

Speak with Erozion in Old Hillsbrad should you complete this task.

  • Thrall's Destiny Fulfilled


After starting this quest, talk to Thrall to get the escort stage started. You will follow Thrall, battling whatever crosses his path, until you reach Tarren Mill. Inside the Tarren Mill inn, you will find Taretha, imprisoned, at which point Epoch Hunter will appear outside. Follow Thrall back out and engage Epoch Hunter. If Thrall dies, it's game over.


You look upon me now and see only a boy, but in my heart and soul I hide my dreams. I have plans for my people, stranger. One day, they shall overthrow their oppressors and rise as one. They will break free from the bonds that hold them and from that uprising shall be born the orcish Horde.

I promise you, stranger, should we make it out of here alive, when I have the means to reward this selfless deed, I will seek you out... I will find you.

<Thrall nods.>

We will leave when you are ready.


Upon completion of this quest you will gain:

  • 17950 experience (or a 10Gold 77Silver compensation at level 70)
  • 1000 reputation with Keepers of Time


You have done a great thing, <name>. Alas, the young warchief's memory of these events must be as they originally were... Andormu awaits you in the master's lair.
