Enemies at the Gate | Warcraft III: Reforged

With the heroic sacrifice of Grommash Hellscream, the pit lord Mannoroth was slain, and the demon curse that had plagued the orcs was put to an end. However, the combined human and orc forces have moved deeper into Ashenvale Forest to ascertain whether a demonic threat still lingers in the land.

Tyrande Whisperwind, the leader of the night elf Sentinels, believes that the outlanders will bring only doom to her enchanted homeland.

CUTSCENE

Shandris Feathermoon: Pardon, Priestess, but you’ve been staring out across Ashenvale for hours.

Tyrande Whisperwind: I sense something dark stirring within the forests, Shandris. It feels as if it’s heading this way.

Shandris Feathermoon: The greenskins who killed Cenarius?

Tyrande Whisperwind: Perhaps. Perhaps something more.

Duke Lionheart: Put your backs into it! Jaina and the orc warchief expect this base to be built swiftly!

Footman: Agh! We shouldn’t even be here! Or siding with the orcs.

Grunt: We’re here to hunt the remaining demons, human. You’re lucky our goals are the same.

Duke Lionheart: All right, you men! Mind your business! Back to work!

Tyrande Whisperwind: So, these orcs and humans presume to run rampant through our lands? They will regret ever stepping foot into Ashenvale. We will establish a base and deal with these outlanders as they deserve.
