Kill High Marshal Twinbraid at Lion's Landing in Krasarang Wilds. You will need a group.


There's an Alliance dwarf I've been keeping a close eye on. High Marshal Twinbraid proved to be a nuisance in Southern Barrens when he struck back at the Horde after the loss of Bael Modan. He's now entrenched within the Alliance stronghold in Lion's Landing, helping to orchestrate the Krasarang counter-offensive.

Only a legendary group of Horde heroes could possibly defeat him.

If you wish to finish him off, bring friends. Lots of friends.


You will receive: 24g 72s


What of Twinbraid?


<Wrathion grins.>

You were being tested, <class>. I knew you were capable of great things by yourself.

But you have proven to me that you have the makings of a leader, cobbling together support among a group of strangers in the midst of a battlefield.

The Horde is fortunate to have you.



As of Patch 5.3, this quest only requires a few helpers to complete, and not a raid. He could even be soloed by very well-geared players, as he now only has 13.1M health, down from 130.8M. High Marshal Twinbraid can be found upstairs in the northern keep of Lion's Landing. He is a boss-level dwarf that will need one tank, and a handful of damage-dealers and maybe a healer. Twinbraid is not flagged for PvP, but controlling the graveyard at Lion's Landing is ideal to lessen the time required to run back in case of deaths. Pull him to one corner of the room and have all ranged and healers stack up behind him with the melee DPS. Any units at range can be charged for a massive amount of damage. This quest can be completed with a cross-realm group, and doing so is strongly recommended if the opposing faction is dominant.

After killing Twinbraid and returning to Wrathion:

Wrathion says: So, General Twinbraid is dead? He was a pivotal figure in the Alliance push through Southern Barrens. Impressive work.
