Use explosives to fend off the Alliance army in Darkshore.


Malfurion knows that his wisp wall is a temporary measure. He is buying time for reinforcements to arrive in Teldrassil.

It is imperative that we find a way through that wall, and quickly.

I want you to take our explosive reserves and apply pressure. You will not be able to bring it down, but you may be able to find us an opening. I will have a squadron ready to strike once you break ground.

Zarvik Blastwix should have a few bombardiers for the job.


You will receive:

  • 19g 40s
  • 16,450 XP
  • +250 reputation with Horde




How did it go?


On accept:

Nathanos Blightcaller says: A wall of wisps? Surely it is nothing our dark rangers and a few demolishers cannot overcome, my lady.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: The scouting party I led to Malfurion underestimated the wisps. They paid the price for doing so.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: We cannot destroy the wisps... not in numbers enough to matter. But we may be able to disperse them.
High Overlord Saurfang says: Interesting. The wisps respond to Malfurion's call. But what if more of the forest were to cry out for help?
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Precisely what I was thinking. <name>, would you be so kind as to test our theory?

Head just northwest to speak with Zarvik Blastwix:

The warchief wants to scare off the wisps, eh? I have just the thing.
You wanna fly this thing? Or do you wanna drop the bombs?
Gossip Let's fly.
Zarvik Blastwix says: You want explosions? Buddy, you got it. Hop into one of these beauties and take it for a spin.

Marked trees and wisps

The player is taken on a fixed ride above the wisp wall over Blackfathom Deeps up north to the Twilight Vale. Once there, players full movement control and have access to one ability:

  • Inv misc missilesmall red.png  Anti-Air Cannon — Blasts enemies within 12 yards of impact. Instant (1.5 sec cooldown)

Use the Goblin Hellion's ability to destroy wisps and the three glowing, golden trees just north of the wisp wall. On completing the objective, the flying machine will automatically return to Zoram'gar Outpost.

Flying too far away will prompt the message "Return to the Twilight Vale!"
