Captain Vilethorn is an orc quest giver located in several locations throughout the Shimmering Expanse, though most notably in the Horde outpost Legion's Rest. He is first discovered by Horde adventurers inside Nespirah, where he is looking to find weapons and gear for the survivors of the Horde parties inside her. Later, he is seen as a busy and strict Horde captain who is working on the assault against the naga in the Shimmering Expanse, later leading the assault in the Ruins of Vashj'ir, and witnessing the ultimate battle loss against the naga.

He is killed during an attack at the forward post.



Inside Nespirah

  • If you have a naga blood on your hands, then you're an ally of mine.

A long time ago, I swore I'd never be anyone's slave again, and I kept that bargain until Idra'kess captured us. Now I can barely contain my fury. All I want is blood...not food, not sleep, not ever victory...only blood.

At Legion's Rest

  • Naga

<vilethorn spits on ground in disgust.>

It was foolish of them to think they could make an orc labor at their whip. We will make every last one of them regret not killing us when they had the chance.
