Defend Neutral Captain Vanessa Beltis, her crew and the Horizon Scout's passengers against the naga attack. Captain Vanessa Beltis must survive.

  • Protect Captain Vanessa Beltis from the naga attack


We were just off the coast looking for a safe haven to make anchor. The sun hadn't been down for more than an hour when they attacked... those damned naga!

I'm not sure what they were looking for, but it's clear they didn't find it—they've already come back once. A couple of my scouts are on watch at the entrance of the valley to give us fair warning when the next attack comes.

I'm sorry you've come along now, <name>, but it's out of my hands.

Are you ready for the fight of your life?


You've done it! Thank you! Surely this was one of the most brutal battles I've ever taken part in. I can't thank you enough.

I only wish more of my crew could have lived through this trial.

I would ask you to speak to any surviving passengers from the Horizon Scout. Some of them had business in the area, and may have a request or two of you if you're willing. Again, thank you for all your help.


6 waves of naga, mixed Raiders (warriors) and Witches (casters) come from around the far corner towards the barricade.

This quest was implemented at least as far back as early 2006, and is part of content that was never completed. While it promises the availability of other quests, these other quests are not available as of mid-2009.

After completing it once, it becomes a repeatable quest with a Availablequest

This quest does not count toward B  [Loremaster of Kalimdor].

As of Patch 4.0.3a, this quest appears to be no longer available due to the absence of Captain Beltis.
