He can be found standing under an arch, not far to the right of General Hammond Clay.
During the Remembrance Day shortly after the Cataclysm, it was Afrasiabi's honor as a field marshal to introduce king Wrynn to begin his speech but the king was missing. Afrasiabi had to delay the crowd by speaking about what he knew the best - steam-engine siege tactics.

Notes and trivia
- Afrasiabi does not like it when plans go off track. One of his favorite topics is the fascinating history, and little-known nuisances, of steam-engine siege tactics... which is apparently unbelievably boring.
- He is named after game designer Alex Afrasiabi.
- He holds the same rank and originally served the same single purpose as Varok Saurfang (ending the quest from Nefarian's head), although the latter's popularity and thus function and lore has since expanded greatly.
