Death is an inevitability.


We must wait for Saurfang to return before we proceed.


Sylvanas mounts up and rides south on accept, so head back to the Blackwood Den and speak with her:

In death, we are reborn.
Gossip Where do we go from here, Warchief?
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Windbend River is locked in a stalemate, and Malfurion knows it.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: We must stay the course for now.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: I will continue leading our soldiers through the wall while we await word from Saurfang.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: In the meantime, we will do all that we can to keep the kaldorei under pressure.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: We shall not afford them the luxury of a peaceful night's rest. This is war.
