For the Horde version of this quest, see Girding Our Loins.


Gather 4 Stormwind Spears, 4 Stormwind Breastplates, 4 Stormwind Shields and 4 Stormwind Helms.

The equipment may also be collected from Gilblin Scavengers.


As we struggled to not drown, my men and I were forced to abandon our weapons and much of our armor.

Erunak says to expect a major attack from the naga soon and I'm inclined to believe him.

If we're going to stand a chance, we'll need your help to recover our lost armaments. They should be lying on the sea floor near our shipwrecks.

Hurry, <race>, we're defenseless here.


Have you recovered our gear, <race>?


Well done, <class>!

Thanks to you, my men will be ready to confront the enemy when they attack.


You will receive:

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

Inv pants leather cataclysm b 01
[Leftover Leggings]
Inv shoulder 150
[Scavenged Stormwind Spaulders]
Inv axe 1h cataclysm b 02
[Captain Taylor's Chopper]


  • It seems that most of the items can be found by either looting from the ocean floor or by killing the gilgoblins; the exception are the shields, as they are obtained only by killing the mobs.
