Accompany King Varian Wrynn to find Marshal Troteman, Hilda Hornswaggle, and slay 25 Horde.


There's no time to waste, we need to find Troteman and secure the beach.

We should check on the dwarves, too - the Explorer's League is tough, but they're no army. They should be along the cliff just north of here.

Let us ride, <class>. For our friends. For the Alliance.


You will receive: 19g 84s 50c


The Alliance will be a shield, protecting Pandaria from the Horde.


I'm satisified with this site, it's time to bring in our fleet.



On accept, Varian joins the party. A boss-level NPC with 590 million health, he flies the Banner of King Varian Wrynn, increasing health, healing and absorption effects, and damage dealt by 25%. Slaying members of the Horde will trigger King Varian Wrynn to release a warcry, restoring 20% of total health and mana.

Head northwest along the beach and start killing Horde Raiders, Horde Priests, and Horde Hunters past the roots.

West along the beach is Marshal Troteman and a few 7th Legion Scouts. On approach:

Marshal Troteman yells: Brace yourselves, they're coming back around!
A squad of Horde troops swarm Troteman and his scouts.

Help fend them off. When Troteman's out of combat:

King Varian Wrynn says: Troteman, you old dog, I knew I'd find you stirring up trouble.
King Varian Wrynn says: The survey team has done well. This is an ideal deep-water port.
King Varian Wrynn says: I want to see a tower built right here.
King Varian Wrynn says: Marshal, see to it that you hold this position until construction is complete.
King Varian Wrynn says: Now, let's see to our supplies...

Hornswaggle and her team of Explorers' League Surveyors are fending off more Horde troops at the northern end of the cove in front of a small cave called Seaspittle Nook.

Hilda Hornswaggle yells: Heads up, more Horde!

Help clear out the troops:

Hilda Hornswaggle says: Explorer's League reporting in, sir!
King Varian Wrynn says: I'm glad to see you contribute to the war effort. But I need supplies. What have you got?
Hilda Hornswaggle says: Plenty of stone, aye. But no sign of major ore veins in this whole area.
King Varian Wrynn says: I'll take it. Anything else?
Hilda Hornswaggle says: Somethun' even BETTER. History! Artifacts from an ancient an' powerful race!
King Varian Wrynn says: I'll make a deal with you, Hornswaggle. Help my men get a stone quarry running, and we'll protect your dig site.
Hilda Hornswaggle says: You mean it? Oh, I cannae WAIT to see the look on Brann's face when he finds out I got an excavation green-lit by the King himself! You'll have your quarry by next sundown!
King Varian Wrynn says: Hm. I used to think leadership was all about strength. I see things more clearly now - it's a little bit of give, a little bit of take. It's about binding people together. A bundle of sticks is not easily broken.

Once the quota of kills is met, speak to Varian again to turn in.
