World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King – The Battle For Undercity (Alliance)
1. (73) Into Hostile Territory
REBORN FROM THE ASHES
Our fate is emblazoned upon our souls at birth. Bolvar’s fall, while tragic, was unavoidable.
All that you can do now is honor your hero,
He mustn’t lose faith. Go now, (name). Your people need a hero. They need you.
(Gather Fordragon’s Shield from the field of battle at Angrathar the Wrath Gate and return it to King Varian Wrynn at Stormwind Keep in Stormwind City.)
FATE, UP AGAINST YOUR WILL
At the behest of Lady Proudmoore, I will allow a diplomatic mission to Orgrimmar to question the Horde’s Warchief, Thrall. You will assist her in this journey and keep her safe from harm. Return to me with news from Orgrimmar.
Speak to Jaina when you are ready to leave.
Assist Lady Jaina Proudmoore in Orgrimmar. Speak to the Warchief of the Horde, , Thrall, at Orgrimmar on the continent of Kalimdor.
A ROYAL COUP
Your champion, Bolvar, died in defense of our world. The Horde is saddened by the loss of such a great hero, but the Horde was not responsible for the cowardly attacks made by Putress at the Wrath Gate. We have also lost mighty heroes because of this betrayal.
Tell your king that we will do everything in our power to bring the perpetrators of this cowardly act to justice. We will do all that we can to avoid conflict with the Alliance, but we will not hesitate to defend ourselves if provoked.
(Use the portal in Grommash Hold to return to Stormwind Keep and deliver Thrall’s message to King Varian Wrynn.)
I sent Broll and Valeera to the Undercity before you left for Orgrimmar. In fact, they’re now stationed outside the sewer entrance to the ruins, awaiting orders.
Lady Proudmoore will open a portal to our forces outside the Undercity. Go there and report to Broll. Jaina and I will be close behind.
(Use the Portal to the Undercity inside Stormwind Keep to teleport to the Undercity. Report to Broll Bearmantle when you arrive at your destination.)
Deep inside the bowels of the Undercity hides the assassin responsible for the deaths of Bolvar and our brave soldiers at the Wrath Gate.
Varian has brought the full might of the Alliance with him to assist in the take down. Join him and Lady Proudmoore in the manhunt and earn your place among the greatest champions of the Alliance!
Speak to King Varian Wrynn when you are ready.
(Assist King Varian Wrynn and Lady Jaina Proudmoore in bringing Grand Apothecary Putress to justice! Report to King Varian Wrynn should you succeed.)
NOTE: I don’t have a level 75 Alliance character to test this. Here is a rough transcript submited by Zato and Tito from Blizzard-rus for our article.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: Thrall, what has happened? The King is preparing for war.
Thrall: Jaina, what happened at the Wrath Gate, it was a betrayal from within…
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner: Lady Proudmoore, the Warchief speaks the truth. This subterfuge was set in motion by Varitmathras and Grand Apothecary Putress. It was not the Horde’s doing.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner: As the combined Horde and Alliance forces began their assault upon the Wrath Gate, an uprising broke out in the Undercity. Varitmathras and hordes of his demonic brethren attacked. Hundreds of my people were slain in the coup. I barely managed to escape with my life.
Thrall: The Horde has lost the Undercity. We now prepare to lay siege to the city and bring the perpetrators of this unforgivable crime to justice. Know this Jaina: War with the Alliance is not in our best interests. If we are forced into a conflict, the Lich King will destroy our divided forces in Northrend. We will make this right, Jaina. Tell your king all that have learned here.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: I will deliver this information to King Wrynn, Thrall but… Bolvar was like a brother to him. In the King’s absence, Bolvar kept Alliance united. He found strength for our people in our darkest hours. He watched over Anduin, raising him as his own.
I fear that rage will consume him, Thrall. I remain hopeful that reason will prevail, but we must prepare for the worst … for war. Farewell, Warchief. I pray that the next time we meet it will be as allies.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: What’s happened here? There are corpses everywhere… the stench.
King Varian Wrynn: Horde. By the looks of the struggle, they are here in force – somewhere. Stay alert and on guard. There’s no telling what horrors await us. ONWARD!
Note: After Putress’s death.
King Varian Wrynn: What say you now, Putress? Look around you, brothers and sisters. Open your eyes! Look at what they have done to our kingdom! How much longer will we allow these savages free reign in our world? I have seen the Horde’s world. I have been inside their cities. Inside their minds… I know what evil lies in the hearts of orcs.
Thrall: [Orcish] Mog Osh’kazil gul’rok il mog Ro’th zaga maza TOV’OSH
King Varian Wrynn: THRALL! Here? ONWARD! We end this now!
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: Varian. stop! I won’t help you do this!
King Varian Wrynn: The orcs have a battle cry: LOK’TAR OGAR! It means “Victory or death.” Fitting… To the throne room! I was away for too long. My absence cost us the lives of some of greatest heroes. Trash like you and this evil witch were allowed to roam free—unchecked.
The time has come to make things right. To disband your treacherous kingdom of murderers and thieves. Putress was the first strike. Many more will come. I’ve waited a long time for this, Thrall. For every time I was thrown into one of your damned arenas… for every time I killed a green-skinned aberration like you… I could only think of one thing. What our world could be without you and your twisted Horde… It ends now, Warchief.
ATTACK! FOR STORMWIND! FOR BOLVAR! FOR THE ALLIANCE
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: VARIAN. NO! STOP!
(Jaina freezes everyone in the room. And teleports the Alliance back to Stormwind)
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: It did not have to be like this…
King Varian Wrynn: For too long have the Horde been left unchecked. We allowed their territories to prosper and in return for our generosity they plotted and planned our demise. Peace? Useless… It’s gotten us nowhere. We have lost some of our greatest heroes ‘to “peace.” Let us see what battle brings…
Return to Northrend. Conquer it for your king – FOR THE ALLIANCE!
