By Demons Be Driven | Warcraft III: Reforged

Three days later, near the edge of the Barrens…



CUTSCENE

Cairne Bloodhoof: If the prophet was correct, then the Warsong encampment lies just over the ridge. We should ready ourselves for battle.

Thrall: I know, Cairne. It’s just that I never thought I’d live to see the day… when I had to fight my own people.

Jaina Proudmoore: Just remember, Thrall, with this soul gem you can capture your friend’s spirit without hurting him. But you need to bring it back to my base immediately, so we can free Hellscream from the demons’ control.

Thrall: I… appreciate your help, Miss Proudmoore. Yet another day I thought I’d never live to see.

Jaina Proudmoore: That makes two of us. I’ll return to my base and aid you as best I can. Good luck… gentlemen.

Cairne Bloodhoof: The spirits rage around you, young warchief. They sense your anguish… your grief.

Thrall: Hellscream is like a brother to me, Cairne. But he and his clan have fallen under the demons’ influence. If I can’t save him, then my people might be damned for all time.

CUTSCENE

Thrall: Hellscream! You’ve got to come with me!

Grommash Hellscream: And where would you lead me, boy? Destiny is at hand! Lord Mannoroth is our master now.

Thrall: Who? You’re not talking sense!

Grommash Hellscream: Ah, Thrall. You always believed that the demons corrupted our race, but that’s only half true. We gave ourselves up willingly on Draenor! The other chieftains and I… we drank Mannoroth’s blood, Thrall. We brought this curse upon ourselves!

Thrall: You did this… to our people… knowingly? Arrgghhh!


Now you can attack Grommash Hellscream.

HINT – Use the Soul Gem to capture Grommash. It is the only way to save him.

Throw a couple of Healing Wards (E) to sustain your troops alive.

Use Cairne’s ability to stun them.

When Grommash is around 20-30% he heals to full health and splits into 4 mirror images.

Grommash Hellscream: Ha! You’ll have to do better than that, little brother!

When he is this 4-mirror image mode, use the Soul Gem on each of the mirror images. You will be able to capture the real Grom. Otherwise, the battle goes on forever.


MAIN QUEST UPDATE

CUTSCENE

(Shamans and Priests successfully undo the Fel Orc curse off Grommash)

Thrall: Hellscream?

Grommash Hellscream: Thrall… I see clearly now. I’m… sorry. I am so sorry.

Thrall: To hell with your apologies! Right now, I need you to help me save our people!

Grommash Hellscream: Mannoroth… We must face Mannoroth in the canyon.

Thrall: Then let’s go. I don’t want to keep the bastard waiting.


CINEMATIC

Mannoroth: Heh heh heh…

Mannoroth: So predictable. I knew you would come. And I see you’ve brought the mighty Hellscream. His blood is mine, as is your misbegotten race.

(Thrall smashes the Doomhammer against the ground charging it with elemental power and hurling it at Mannoroth)

(The hammer makes no dent on Mannoroth and laughs it off)

Mannoroth: A worthy effort, but futile.

(Mannoroth charges forward and slams his lance against the ground, sending Thrall against a wall, knocking him out).

Mannoroth: The boy believed you could be saved, but he didn’t know what burns within your soul when in your heart you know we are the same.

Grommash Hellscream: Noooo!

Grommash Hellscream: Thrall… The blood haze has lifted. The demon’s fire has burnt out in my veins. I have… freed myself.

Thrall: No, old friend. You’ve freed us all.

(Thrall howls in mourning of Grom’s death)
