Charging the battlefield:

Genn Greymane yells: Brothers and sisters of the Alliance, hear me!
Genn Greymane yells: The Horde's cowardly attack on Teldrassil brought war upon us... and made clear what is truly at stake.
Genn Greymane yells: Their warchief's goal was not to capture a single city, but to destroy our way of life... and snuff out hope for generations to come.
Genn Greymane yells: To secure our future, the Banshee Queen must answer for her crimes. Her dark reign ends today!
Genn Greymane yells: Together we will drive her evil from this land... and raise our banners above Lordaeron once more!
Genn Greymane yells: Stand as one! FOR THE ALLIANCE!
Dwarven Rifleman yells: For the Alliance!
Stormwind Footman yells: For the Alliance!

Genn Greymane yells: These goblins must be stopped! Focus on the shredder!
Anduin Wrynn yells: All units, to the gates! Victory for the Alliance!
Brother Gareth says: Heroes! We're overrun! I can't... keep them alive much longer.

Stage 3: Clearing the Way

Anduin Wrynn says: It's over Sylvanas! The walls of Lordaeron will soon come crashing down around you.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: You have no idea what you're up against, boy king. We've only just begun!
The Azerite War Machine attacks.
Genn Graymane says: I've never seen anything like it...
Anduin Wrynn says: Anything made can be broken! Genn, follow me!

Stage 5: Blighted Grounds

  • Description: Evacuate wounded soldiers before they are infected by blight gas.
  • Defend King Anduin and evacuate the wounded.
Anduin Wrynn yells: She's raising their bodies! We must evacuate the wounded!

Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: DESTROY THEM!
Anduin Wrynn yells: The Alliance leaves no soldier behind!
Anduin Wrynn yells: Not this time...

  • Infiltrate the keep with King Anduin
  • Assist Jaina
Anduin Wrynn yells: Jaina! Thank the Light you've come! You are sorely needed in this fight.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore yells: I stand with you, my king. The Horde will pay for its crimes. I'll block off the entrance so our forces can regroup.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: I don't know how long these walls will hold. We should not linger here.
Anduin Wrynn says: Sound advice. We didn't give Sylvanas much time to prepare for this attack, but we can't afford to underestimate her.
Anduin Wrynn says: Everyone, fall into position. We strike on my command!
Anduin Wrynn says: Genn, I need you to cover our backs. It's too risky to funnel everyone through the side of the keep all at once. There will certainly be traps.

Anduin Wrynn says: If we turn tail now, we just become prey. No. We'll fight - and die, if we must - for what we believe in!
Nathanos Blightcaller yells: Your time is up, King Anduin!
Nathanos Blightcaller yells: VICTORY FOR THE FORSAKEN!
Alleria Windrunner says: Let us even the odds, King Wrynn!
Anduin Wrynn says: Alleria! Thank the Light you've made it!
Alleria Windrunner says: I am known for my timing, your majesty. Mekkatorque, are you ready for battle?
High Tinker Mekkatorque says: Indubitably! I brought some extra machines for backup. Feel free to give 'em a spin!
Anduin Wrynn says: Jaina, Genn, help me with Blightcaller and Lor'themar.
Anduin Wrynn says: Alleria, take the rest of our troops and focus on routing the enemy army.
Alleria Windrunner says: As you wish. Champions, with me!
High Tinker Mekkatorque says: My machines are at your command!

  • Find Sylvanas Windrunner
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: The Horde is falling back again? What is the strategy here?
Genn Greymane says: That accursed blight blocks our path. Our forces can't follow her.
Anduin Wrynn says: We can't let the warchief escape. Capturing her is the only way to win this war.
Alleria Windrunner says: Understood. We will not let you go alone.
Anduin Wrynn says: Mekkatorque, can your flying machines get us past this blight?
High Tinker Mekkatorque says: I don't have many of them, but the ones I do are at your disposal.
Anduin Wrynn says: So be it. Champions, with me. Mekkatorque, backtrack through the keep with the rest of our forces, and station them at Brill. Be ready to strike on my command.
High Tinker Mekkatorque says: You've got it.

Stage 12: She's Getting Away!

  • Description: Pursue Sylvanas in the Gyrocopter.
  • Use the Gyrocopter to Pursue Sylvanas

Stage 13: The High Overlord.

  • Description: Defeat High Overlord Saurfang.
  • Confront High Overlord Saurfang
Anduin Wrynn says: Stand aside, Saurfang. This war is not yours to bear alone, and there is no honor in killing you.
High Overlord Saurfang says: Your father was a man of honor, boy. You know nothing of the sort.
High Overlord Saurfang says: I will NEVER stand down! I eat, sleep, and die by the sword. What price have you paid for your people?
Anduin Wrynn says: My father gave everything for the Alliance. The question is, are you willing to do the same?
High Overlord Saurfang yells: MY LIFE FOR THE HORDE!

Stage 14: The Dark Lady

  • Description: Pursue Sylvanas
  • Confront Sylvanas Windrunner
Anduin Wrynn says: Alliance... hold!
High Overlord Saurfang says: No! I demand an honorable death!
Anduin Wrynn says: My father once said that Varok Saurfang embodied what was best about the Horde -- its sense of honor. He admired you for that, and so do I.
Anduin Wrynn says: Listen to me. There is no honor in this.
High Overlord Saurfang says: That is not for an Alliance king to decide!
Anduin Wrynn says: At this moment, it is.
Anduin Wrynn says: Take him to the Stockades. Treat him with the respect he is due.
Anduin Wrynn says: When I return, we will speak of honor... and how it may yet be reclaimed.
High Overlord Saurfang says: If... you return.
Anduin says: We've done it. Sylvanas will finally answer for her crimes. Champions, to my side...


Scenario completed, players will appear at the Stormwind Harbor in a med tent. Halford Wyrmbane is nearby.
