For the Alliance 15 Alliance version of this quest, see Quest:Pressing Forward (Alliance).

Objectives Edit

Bring the Gob Squad past the northern Dragonmaw Gate to the entrance of Grim Batol.

If you are separated from the Gob Squad, return to Warlord Krogg in Wyrms' Bend to be reassigned.

  • Grim Batol entrance secured

Description Edit

Good work so far. We should find the entrance to Grim Batol just past the next gate.

I was ordered to secure the entrance and block off reinforcements while the rest of our men press through the path we've cleared up the canyon. I'm thinking if we get there soon enough, maybe I can let Ticker have a little more fun.

Let's get moving down the canyon to the southwest - we should find the next gate pretty quickly.


The gate is clear. Once your people finish clearing the canyon, we will speak to your leaders about the next move.

Rewards Edit

You will receive:

  • 9Gold 40Silver
  • 69400 XP

You will also be able to choose one of the following:

Inv gauntlets 124
[Squadron Leader's Gloves]
Inv boots plate cataclysm b 02
[Gate-Breaker Treads]
Inv misc cape cataclysm caster b 01
[Cloak of Valorous Direction]

Notes Edit

  • It seems it is easiest to take the squad up the left side of the area, hugging the hills as close as possible. This minimizes the number of mobs that are engaged.
  • Have some fun with your squad if you feel like making hand gestures.

Dialogue Edit

Upon completion

Ticker says: See you around!
Patch says: Good working with you.
Newt says: I kind of like you. Try not to get killed out there.
