Meet with High Overlord Saurfang at Krasus' Landing.

  • Speak with High Overlord Saurfang


<name>, Saurfang has not been the same since our loss at the Broken Shore. Though he led well and slew many, he has taken our defeat hard.

I fear he is determined to return to the Broken Shore. Will you speak to him?


You will receive: 1g 54s


Very well, let us see what awaits us on that ill-fated shore.

At the very least, a lot of dead demons! Hah!



As you walk around Dalaran over the Broken Isles, Eitrigg will eventually appear, offering this quest.

Eitrigg says: <name>, I must speak with you, the matter is urgent!
Eitrigg says: It concerns High Overlord Saurfang! I fear he plans to bring doom upon himself!
Eitrigg says: This matter cannot wait, we must speak now!

On accept:

Eitrigg says: My thanks, champion. I will seek out Thrall and see if he can help.

When approaching Saurfang, who gazes upon the Broken Shore:

High Overlord Saurfang says: Ah, I'll wager Eitrigg sent you. His concern is noble, but unnecessary.

Speak with Saurfang to continue.

Recent events weigh heavily on me. There is something I must do.
Gossip What must you do?
That battle, I can find no glory in it. Too many died, but I did not. The anger within me grows every minute I stare at that storm.
I will return to the Broken Shore, for those under my command. I will kill demons until their glory is found and my honor restored. Do not seek to counsel against this, I am set in my wars.
Gossip Then I will go with you. No one should fight alone.
High Overlord Saurfang says: Death is our likely end on those shores. You know this, yet I can see the determination in your eyes. Perhaps you have honor to regain there as well.
