Horde Gorka wants you to accompany her to Mor'shan Ramparts and report to Horde Kadrak.

Speak to her when you are ready to depart.


There will be no help coming from Splintertree.

The elves have launched a major assault on our stronghold there and they have the place surrounded!

We must inform Kadrak or die trying!

Your kodo has been loaded up with the wood you collected. Let me know when you're ready and we'll charge the enemy lines.


You will be able to choose one of these rewards:
Inv shoulder 25.png [Mourner's Stole] Inv pants leather 21.png [Leggings of Loss]
Inv shoulder 14.png [Burden of Sacrifice] Inv pants leather 21.png [Griefbearer Leggings]

You will also receive:



We must always be prepared for losses. Her honorable service to the Horde will not be forgotten.

And her sacrifice shall not be in vain!


This quest would frequently bug-out and become uncompletable if multiple players tried doing it at the same time. As if to rectify this, Patch 8.3.0 changed this quest entirely into a single cutscene, detailed below.

Brutusk charges from the Warsong Lumber Camp on the western road, the adventurer and Gorka on its back. Several Ashenvale Bowman appear from the woods and begin firing at the kodo to no avail. Ashenvale Skirmishers attempt to leap onto Brutusk, but Gorka cuts them down. Eventually, an Ashenvale Commander appears in front of Brutusk with a squad of sentinels.

Ashenvale Commander says: That's far enough, orc! Dismount and submit or die!

Gorka says: Out of our way, fools!

Despite a rain of arrows, Brutusk barrels through the sentinels, knocking the commander aside. Finally, the party arrives at the Mor'shan Rampart, but it is revealed that Gorka did not make it, having been shot through the chest by one of the elves' arrows.
