Help Yrel escape from Shaz'gul.


I've failed, <name>...

My squadron was caught by a wandering patrol. We fought fiercely, but the alarm had been raised. The rangari forced me into hiding before surrendering themselves to the enemy.

They were under MY command, and they gave their lives... for what? I... I'm not sure what to do, <name>.

We need to get out of here, but how?

Speak with Yrel:

It's hopeless. How are we going to get out of here?
  • Gossip We can't give up now! Heroes learn from their mistakes.
    Yrel says: A hero? Hardly! I am just an initiate, and not a very good one at that.
    • Gossip You must choose, Yrel. Will you rise and fight, or fall here to doubt?
      Yrel says: You are right, <name>. My choices do matter. I choose... to fight!
    • Gossip We all start from humble beginnings. I began this life in the service of the Lich King. (Death Knight)
    • Gossip We all start from humble beginnings. My life began after I emerged from the wreckage of the Exodar. (Draenei)
    • Gossip We all start from humble beginnings. I once hunted troggs in the cold mountains of Dun Morogh. (Dwarf/Gnome)
    • Gossip We all start from humble beginnings. I took my first steps outside an abbey in Elwynn forest. (Human)
    • Gossip We all start from humble beginnings. I began my journey in the tranquil boughs of Teldrassil. (Night Elf)
    • Gossip We all start from humble beginnings. Once, I was just a trainee on a faraway isle called Shen-zin Su. (Pandaren)
    • Gossip We all start from humble beginnings. My story began on the streets of Gilneas. (Worgen)
      Yrel says: I see, <name>. You have never backed down from a challenge. I must strive to do the same.
    • Gossip Pull yourself together, Yrel! You can do better than this!
      Yrel says: Oh! I needed to hear that, <name>. I must not fall prey to my own fears.
  • Gossip Believe in the Light! Despite setbacks, it will always prevail.
    Yrel says: Is it true? Good doesn't always triumph over evil.
    • Gossip The Light is only as strong as its champions. Believe in YOURSELF.
      Yrel says: You are truly wise, <name>. I must beleive in myself, for I carry the Light within me.
    • Gossip 'Doubt the Light' just doesn't have the same ring to it.
      Yrel says: You choose the strangest times for humor, <class>. Nevertheless, you have a point, I must have courage.
    • Gossip Your people have triumphed over endless persecution. Will you let their hopes die here without a fight?
      Yrel says: You are right, <name>. I will not bow quietly to these enemies. I must fight!
  • Gossip Think of your people. The captives still need our help!
    Yrel says: Why? What is the use of saving them? Only death awaits us all in the end.
    • Gossip You cannot abandon them to this fate. If we forsake our friends now, we are no better than Ner'zhul.
      Yrel says: You're absolutely right, <name>. Samaara and the others are depending on us. For them, I must survive!
    • Gossip It is not our deaths that matter in the end, but how we live. How will you live, Yrel?
      Yrel says: I will live to protect the righteous, the helpless, and the hopeless. You are a wise teacher, <name>.
    • Gossip Your allies' lives will mean nothing if you give up here. Let their sacrifice inspire you.
      Yrel says: Let us do this.
Yrel says: Detonating the explosives... now!
Shadowmoon Voidaxe says: Look! Fire!
Shadowmoon Voidaxe says: Aaauuughh!
Ner'zhul says: There are still enemies among us. EVERYONE TO ARMS!
Ner'zhul says: Seal the exits! No draenei scum leaves this village alive!
Ner'zhul leads the Voidaxes away toward the buildings.
Yrel says: Now's our chance. Let's go!


  • Shadowmoon Ritualist yells: Stop them! No one gets out of the city!
  • Shadowmoon Voidaxe yells: You thought you can get away so easily? Attack!
  • Shadowmoon Voidaxe yells: This is the end of your race, Draenei!
  • Shadowmoon Voidbinder yells: Get those peons under control! You heard Ner'zhul, no one leaves this village!
  • Shadowmoon Voidbinder yells: There is no escape!
  • Shadowmoon Peon yells: Aaaah!
  • Shadowmoon Peon says: Someone find water!

Fight through several waves of orcs, culminating with a fight against Terrorfang at the gates.

Shadowmoon Reaver yells: Terrorfang will put an end to you.
Yrel says: Thank you, <name>. I will meet you back at Twilight Glade.


I could never have done it without you, <name>. Your words unlocked something within me which I have not felt before.

Call it what you wish - resolve, conviction, faith. I will not soon forget this, <class>.
