Coast of Bones is the eighth mission of the Alliance campaign in Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal.

Mission briefing

Seeking out the artifacts needed to seal the rift has given the Horde time to mount a strike against us. A great Orcish armada threatens the coasts that you have captured, and the armies of the Alliance have been hard pressed on many fronts.

Our only chance for victory now lies in obtaining the Book of Medivh.

All knowledge of the Portal rests in the keeping of Ner'zhul and his Order of Death Knights at the Fortress of Shadowmoon. You must storm and raze the strongholds that guard the coastline of his lands so that our forces may be brought to bear in an effort to isolate and destroy his cursed sanctuary.


  • Destroy all enemy forces
