Adventure Guide

When Gul'dan threatened Suramar with destruction if Elisande did not comply with his demands, those were not idle words. A Legion invasion force has burrowed into the tunnels beneath the city, and Xakal leads those forces. He awaits further command, ready at a moment's notice to surge forth and bring death and destruction to the streets of Suramar.


General Xakal periodically summons Dread Felbats and causes the ground to erupt with Fel Fissures. After several waves, he casts Wicked Slam, inflicting damage to all players and knocking them back.
