Making the Rounds



Lady Sylvanas Windrunner: Are you familiar with vrykul? Towering, brutish warriors from an ancient stock. Subtlety is not a value they hold in high regard. Their legends speak of the Aegis of Aggramar. To claim it, one must undergo some kind of trial. One must be… worthy. I trust you are more than capable of handling whatever trials stand between you and the Aegis. Truthfully, Stormheim holds another treasure. One that I will be pursuing by my own means.


Lady Sylvanas Windrunner: The new catapults are faster and more powerful than ever before. I have our goblin allies to thank for that.

Inspect Catapult: 1/1


Lady Sylvanas Windrunner: Nathanos has been helping me train a new generation of rangers. They represent both our past, and our future. I think often about our future, hero. My people cannot reproduce. Are we not destined, then, to wither away eventually? No. The Forsaken will never stop fighting. Not while I reign. Not when there are still beings out there with the power to stop death.

Dread-Captain Tattersail: News from Captain Dreadwake, my lady. They have found the temple. The Oblivion has landed nearby. They are building fortifications now and will be ready to lay siege at your command.

Speak with Dread-Captain Tattersail: 1/1



Lady Sylvanas Windrunner: Good. Send a bat – tell them we are leaving shortly.


Lady Sylvanas Windrunner: Do you understand the gravity of our task? If we do not fight for our future, we will not have one.


NOTE: Strangely, completing the quest starts the scenario.


Scenario: The Maw of Nashal

STAGE 1: The Windrunner – Report to Lady Sylvanas Windrunner.


Dread-Captain Tattersail: Damnit! We’re sitting ducks out here! Show yourselves you cowards…

Lady Sylvanas Windrunner: The Alliance will be upon us soon, and we have nowhere to run. Organize our defenses beginning with the rear. I want bat-riders in the air and catapults at the ready!



Nathanos Blightcaller: My Queen, your safety must be our first concern. Surely we can leave a few ships behind to–

Lady Sylvanas Windrunner: Do not question me, Nathanos. Now go – make for the Eternity, and bring this hero with you.

Nathanos Blightcaller: Yes, of course. Come along… “hero.”


STAGE 2: The Eternity — Ride with Nathanos to the Eternity and use a Forsaken Catapult to shoot down Skyfire Gryphon Riders.


Nathanos Blightcaller: A single gunship? Are they insane? Gryphons incoming! Man that catapult!

NOTE: Click the catapult in the back of the Eternity ship, upstairs. Hit yellow or red tagged gryphons flying around. Green ones are friendly.


A 7th Legion Battlemage freezes the catapult solid!

NOTE: When this happens, there is a 7th Legion Battlemage behind you attacking the Forsaken crewmen. Kill it, and the catapult thaws and becomes operational again. You get bombarded often. Move away or it stuns you. The Battlemage also casts Ice Storm (5940K damage per tick)


STAGE 3: The Blightcaller: Ride with Nathanos to the Blightcaller and slay incoming 7th Legion forces.


NOTE: Mount Bloodwing, the bat (Nathanos Blightcaller’s pet).



Nathanos Blightcaller: The bold fools are boarding my ship. Come on!



Knight-Captain Brimley: Concentrate fire on the Blightcaller!



STAGE 4: The Black Rose — Ride with Nathanos to the Black Rose and rid the ship of worgen.


Nathanos Blightcaller: We must take the fight to them. But it would be rude to show up without a gift… The apothecaries will have just what we need. Beasts all over the ship! Put them down!



NOTE: After killing the worgen, Abigail the Huntress will start shooting Steady Shot (9,944K damage). Eventually, she disengages to the other side of the ship to cast [Explosive Rounds]. Close to melee range to disrupt this ability.



STAGE 5: Boarding the Skyfire — Ride with Nathanos to the Skyfire and assault the gunship by placing Volatile Flares and slaying Alliance crew.


Nathanos Blightcaller: Filthy worgen… A beast in a hat is still a beast. The mixture in those vials is extremely volatile. Once you pop the cork, there’s no containing it. Place a few vials near their ammunition – before long, the ship will be tearing itself apart from the inside. Meet me on deck when the vials are in place. There is someone here I want to kill personally…


FINAL STAGE: Queen Takes King — Battle Genn Greymane on the deck of the Skyfire.


Nathanos Blightcaller: Slay them all! For the Dark Lady!

Genn Greymane: Monsters! You have no place in this world!

Nathanos Blightcaller: You call us monsters? How rich. Stop holding back, old man! Show us the real you.



Genn Greymane: Rrgghhh… ENOUGH!

(Genn transforms into a worgen)



Nathanos Blightcaller: Ah, there you are!

(Outro cinematic of Skyfire flying away in flames, shaking from explosions.)


Black Rose Apothecary: It worked! He’s alive!

Apothecary Withers: Of course it worked! I’ve woken up things that were twice as dead for three times as long. This one was easy.


NOTE: Genn Greymane doesn’t die in this scenario. He’s later found unconscious near the Weeping Bluffs, at a 7th Legion camp where the Skyfire crashed.
