Fight the waves of Charred Invaders on Nordune Ridge until the portal is opened.

  • Open the portal to the Firelands.


We appear to have everything under control. Our invasion portal to the Firelands will be opened momentarily, and the elementals have not put up much fight.

Assist our druids by dispatching the last few of these elementals. Then, once the gate has been opened, we can make our move.


Continue the fight, <name>. Only a short while longer now.


Leyara... she lives. I sense Fandral's hand at play here...


You will receive:


A progress bar will appear on accept and must reach 105 before completing. This appears to be timed, and not tied to kills. The NPCs can handle the invading fire elementals easily on their own, but help out to potentially speed up the process. Once the objective is complete, a voiced script event starts!

Leyara walks out of the portal.
Hamuul yells: Druids, hold your fire! She is unarmed!
Malfurion yells: Wait a moment... I know that girl. Leyara, is that you?
The friendly NPCs run up to her.
Leyara yells: Minions of the Firelord, lay waste to these invaders! The Guardians of Hyjal shall burn for their arrogance!
Leyara yells: You will all suffer the wrath of Ragnaros!
Leyara yells: DIE!!!
Leyara turns attackable by opening with a Fire Nova that hits for 20,000 Fire on players and 300,000 on NPCs, one-shotting all but the named elites. Leyara has 5.4 million health, but the NPCs hit hard. When she is nearly defeated...
Leyara says: No matter. I shall watch Hyjal burn from afar.
Leyara shifts into flight form, taking the form of a phoenix.
Hamuul says: A flame druid... she is dangerous, Malfurion. You know her?
Malfurion says: Yes, Hamuul. And she's more dangerous than you know.

Speak to Malfurion to continue.
