Burning Crusade – Caverns of Time – Old Hillsbrad
Andormu: To the west is the timeway to Hillsbrad of the past – 7 years to be exact.
Forces are working against the Horde warchief, Thrall, attempting to prevent him from ever escaping Durnholde Keep.
If Thrall never escapes, this world – as you know it – will cease to exist.
Gather a group of adventurers and take the timeway to old Hillsbrad. Two of our agents await you inside.
Speak with Erozion on the other side.
Andormu at the Caverns of Time has asked that you venture to Old Hillsbrad and speak with Erozion.
Erozion: You must use the incendiary bombs at the barrels inside the internment lodges of Durnhold Keep. Once five bombs have been ignited and the diversion has been set, find Thrall in the basement prison of Durnholde and set him free. Follow him and make sure that he does not die!
OLD HILLSBRAD (Part 2)
Erozion: Our worst fears might soon be realized. The forces at work behind this temporal disturbance are a new flight of dragons known as the Infinite. We do not know where they came from or why they are destroying timeways.
In this pocket of time, they have kidnapped Taretha Foxton, daughter of Tammis Foxton, the secretary of Aedelas Blackmoore, ruler of Durnholde and overseer of all internment camps on Azeroth.
NOTE: This is the first quest inside the Old Hillsbrad instance. However, many a curious fan will skip it to explore how Hillsbrad looked like in the past. Don’t bother going west. You will get a blue haze blinding your sight if you go too far. The gate of Thoradin Wall is closed. There is a blockade of rocks on the path to Hinterlands. The Ravenholdt Manor cave doesn’t exist yet. To the north, the Alterac Kingdom has a wall and a gate blocking your path. Dun Garok – the dwarves stronghold – will greet you with its gates closed. So stick with Tarren Mill, Southshore and Durnholde Keep for your exploration.
Be careful exploring Tarren Mill. Guards are set to enemy. They have large aggro radius. Guards by the towers and on the road are neutral and won’t attack you unless you attack them. At Southshore, everyone is friendly. You will recognize many NPCs there including Kel’Thuzad, Hercular, Mograine, Tirion Fordring, Taelan, and many others.
