The next morning, within the subterranean Barrow Deeps of Mount Hyjal…



Malfurion Stormrage: These Barrow Deeps have remained untouched for nearly three thousand years. Still, there is no telling what creatures may have taken up residence after we sealed these tunnels shut.

Tyrande Whisperwind: There is nothing to fear in this place. The only enemy that has ever given me pause is now corrupting the lands above us. Let us be done with this business and get back to the surface.

Malfurion Stormrage: Agreed. Just be carefull. There is no telling how the druids of the claw will react to us after all this time.


Awaken Druids

  • Discover the location of the Barrow Deeps
  • Tyrande must survive
  • Malfurion must survive



Druid of the Talon – Powerful Druid who can cast Faerie Fire and Cyclone.

NOTICE – Tyrande’s Scout ability cannot be used in underground caverns.

Go west to kill this Kobold Tunneler level 3 and 4 Kobold level 1. Drops Potion of Healing: Heals 250 hit points.

Go straight east, and up to kill this Elder Wendingo level 6 and Wendigo level 4 — drops Scroll of Healing: Heals 150 hit points to all friendly non-mechanical units around the Hero.

Go south to kill this Brood Mother level 6 and the two Spider level 1.

Malfurion Stormrage: These cave spiders are enormous!

Tyrande Whisperwind: I sense a strange darkness tainting them. They have been transformed by a great evil!

Go west to kill 4 Skeleton Warriors and a Frost Revenant level 4. The revenant casts Blizzard.

To the west edge, there is another Revenant level 4 and two Skeletal Marksman level 3 — drops Wand of Lightning Shield: Allows the Hero to cast Lightning Shield on a target unit. Lightning Shield surrounds a unit with electricity, dealing 20 damage per sec to nearby units. Contains 3 charges. Lasts 20 sec.

To the north, you will find a treasure chest that contains Potion of Greater Healing: Heals 500 hit points.

Back to the main road, there are two Spider level 1 in this corner, and curiously, there is a hidden critter behind these mushrooms named Jimmy the Seal.

Use Malfurion’s Force of Nature on the Mushrooms to turn them into Treants. Now you have a path to kill Jimmy the Seal and loot him. He drops Manual of Health: Permanent +50 hit points.

To the east, there is a Giant Spider level 4 and a spider level 1 — drops Spider Ring: Increases the Agility of the Hero by 1.

Further east, following the wall, there is a Spitting Spider level 3. Spider level 1 (3). Egg Sacks (3). Destroy the egg sacks for a Scroll of Healing: Heals 150 hit points to all friendly non-mechanical units around the Hero.

A few yards southeast — command Malfurion to cast Force of Nature on these Mushrooms for a secret.

Once the path is open, go to the deadend to kill The Largest Panda Ever level 10 — drops Necklace of Spell Immunity: Renders the Hero invulnerable to magic.

Go back to the main road, and steer to the southeast. There are two Brood Mother level 6 surrounded by several Egg Sacks. Some of the egg sacks spawn Spitting Spider level 3 which apply poison to the target.

Tyrande Whisperwind: Demon bile! This must be what cursed the spiders!

Malfurion Stormrage: If the corruption can do this to these simple creatures, I dare not imagine what it could do to the beasts who live above!

Tyrande Whisperwind: We must put an end to this corruption, no matter the cost!

To the southwest, there is a Furbolg Chieftain level 8 with an Optional Quest. He is accompanied by 4 Furbolg level 4 and a Sick Furbolg level 7.


Furbolg Chieftain: Hold, Priestess! We need your help! Our shaman was bitten by a strange spider and has become deathly ill. Our tribesmen have run off, leaving us to fend for ourselves.

Tyrande Whisperwind: What would you have us do?

Furbolg Chieftain: The waters of the nearby fountain of life can save him, but we dare not leave him in this state. If you can fill this vial with its waters and return it to us, our shaman’s life will be saved.

Tyrande Whisperwind: If his wisdom will prevent you from turning feral like your tribesmen, I will gladly save your shaman.


Bear Necessities

  • Get water from the Fountain of Life
  • Return the filled vial to the Furbolgs

Note: If both your Heroes’ inventory is full, don’t forget to pick the Empty Vial from the ground.

Empty Vial: A special vial adept at containing the magical healing waters of a Fountain of Life.

Before going for the optional quest, kill this Skeletal Marksman level 3 and two Skeletal Archers level 1.

Near them, to the north, there are 3 Ghosts level 3.

Go further west and upward to kill this Thunder Lizard level 6, and 3 Lightning Lizard level 2.

Tyrande Whisperwind: This must be the fountain of life. I need only place the vial in the fountain’s waters.


  • Get water from the Fountain of Life (Complete)
  • Return the filled vial to the Furbolgs


Furbolg Chieftain: Elune be praised, Priestess. Truthfully, we doubted that you’d return. Now, our shaman has a chance.


Bear Necessities

NEW ITEM RECEIVED – The Talisman of the Wild can be used three times to temporarily summon a Furbolg to aid you.

Go west to reach the main road, then south. Stop at this spot and command Malfurion to cast Force of Nature on these mushrooms. This opens a path to several crates. Or not… because all the is… is a sheep. Doesn’t drop anything when killed. The Dryad’s Abolish Magic does no effect.

Bring your Heroes south to trigger a cutscene that plays onscreen.


Tyrande Whisperwind: The pathway cuts off to the south, but this doorway looks promising.

Malfurion Stormrage: Oh, no. How could I have forgotten?

Tyrande Whisperwind: What is behind this door that worries you, my love?

Malfurion Stormrage: This door leads to Illidan’s prison, Tyrande. We should go… now!

Tyrande Whisperwind: Illidan? It’s been ten thousand years! Could he still be alive? We should free him! He would be the perfect ally against the undead and their demon masters!

Malfurion Stormrage: No, Tyrande! That beast must never be set free!

Tyrande Whisperwind: But he is your brother!

Malfurion Stormrage: Be that as it may, he is far too… dangerous. I forbid it.

Tyrande Whisperwind: Only the goddess may forbid me anything. I will free Illidan whether you like it or not.
