Use the shredder to destroy the Talrendis Ancient. Emergency Backup Shredders are available at the Orgrimmar Rear Gate if you lose yours.


How's that shredder holding up? I think I can bring your emergency power supplies online - that'll recharge you when you're wounded.

Listen, these night elves are being strengthened by an ancient of war who's taken root just west of the gates. he's a big, giant tree. You know what to do! Take him out!

You were made for this!!

You did it, <name>! The invaders have pulled back and they told me I was crazy for installing a grenade launcher on a woodchipper...

Great work with the Shredder. With an impressive showing like that right here on the Warchief's doorstep, the Horde can't doubt what goblin technology can do for them. I owe you a big thanks!


The shredder gains one last ability

  • Recharge — Tap emergency power reserves, healing the shredder for 70% of its maximum health. Instant (12 sec cooldown)

Head west along the path to the Ancient Grove. There, at [21.5, 75.9], the Talrendis Ancient awaits, initially friendly. Getting too close will turn it hostile, however:

Talrendis Ancient yells: Keep your machines away from me, goblin! You'll be cleansed from this land like the weeds you are!

Get about 20 yards away and spam the grenades, using fling blade ability when it's off cooldown. The new ability is a heal, so take advantage of it!
