High Commander Halford Wyrmbane is the leader of the 7th Legion and Wintergarde Keep, a major Alliance base in the Dragonblight.


Wyrmbane served as a knight during the founding of the Knights of the Silver Hand. Believing priestly orders couldn't mix with martial skills, he continued to focus only on combat training. After observing the first paladins, however, Wyrmbane became inspired by the faith and dedication of Turalyon. When the Alliance Expedition was presumed lost following the Invasion of Draenor, Wyrmbane realized that warriors could also be devout followers of the Light. Wyrmbane vowed to honor Turalyon's sacrifice by being both a soldier and a paladin.[1]

He has led the 7th Legion in crucial wars throughout recent times, timing back from the Battle of Mount Hyjal, and continues to lead the Legion to this day.

Wrath of the Lich King

Wrath of the Lich King This section concerns content related to Wrath of the Lich King.

Commanding the 7th Legion from Wintergarde Keep he directed the adventurers into freeing trapped villagers from Scourge-occupied town center. His men, Bolvar, and the adventurers defeated Thel'zan the Duskbringer[2] (formerly the treacherous priest Inigo Montoy) who was given the phylactery of Kel'Thuzad which — as it was not destroyed — allowed the Archlich to regain corporeal form.

He is later seen on the Isle of Conquest battling against the Horde, being opposed to Overlord Agmar and his Kor'kron.

During the Cataclysm, he was headed into the Ruins of Gilneas, regaining it for the Alliance from the Forsaken, and supporting the Gilneas Liberation Front. Wyrmbane gave orders to Master Sergeant Pietro Zaren.[3] And was seen briefly on the deck of the X-2 Pincer submarine.[4]

He was probably still commanding the Alliance forces in the region.


Legion This section concerns content related to Legion.

During the events of Legion, Halford Wyrmbane appears when an Alliance player reaches Prestige rank 2, alongside several other wartime leaders of the Alliance. There, he can be found among the procession using a sword similar to that of  [Admiral Taylor's Greatsword].

Learning that Turalyon was alive, how the Light had sustained and transformed him, and witnessing his return to Azeroth only strengthened Wyrmbane's resolve and devotion, feeling that his faith and his choice to become a paladin had been well placed all those years ago.[1]

Battle for Azeroth

Battle for Azeroth This section concerns content related to Battle for Azeroth.

Halford Wyrmbane greets heroes recently returned from the Battle for Lordaeron in Stormwind Harbor. He expresses melancholy over the number of Alliance soldiers lost in the fight.

On King Anduin Wrynn's orders, the 7th Legion traveled to Kul Tiras with Genn Greymane to ensure that Jaina Proudmoore's mission of getting the Kul Tirans to rejoin the Alliance succeeded.[5] Halford can be found aboard the Wind's Redemption docked at Boralus, where on orders from Anduin he directs the Alliance's operations to secure their position on Zandalar and Kul Tiras.[6] Once footholds are secured, he co-leads the Alliance's war effort on Zandalar alongside Shandris Feathermoon.

A version of Halford appears in the Vision of Stormwind.

Gossip in Dragonblight

  • Through the valleys and peaks of Mount Hyjal, across the shifting sands of Silithus, against the Legion's dread armies - we have fought. We are the nameless, faceless, sons and daughters of the Alliance. By the Light and by the might of the Alliance, the first strike belongs to us and the last strike is all that our enemies see.
We are 7th Legion.

Conversation with Mathias Shaw on the Wind's Redemption started with Mathias
  • Gossip <Stay a while and listen.>
Halford Wyrmbane walks over to Master Mathias Shaw.
Master Mathias Shaw says: How many campaigns against the Horde does this make for you, Wyrmbane?
Halford Wyrmbane says: I've stopped counting. I go where the Alliance orders me... and where the Light calls me. But then, you are no stranger to battle.
Master Mathias Shaw says: SI:7 was built to work behind the scenes. I prefer to stay in the shadows where I am not so... exposed.
Halford Wyrmbane says: I must admit... as a paladin, I have questioned the need for spies and assassins within the ranks of the Alliance. But the honor and loyalty you have shown our king is beyond question.
Master Mathias Shaw says: Kind of you to say, but if I had to choose between satisfying honor and getting the job done, I'll pick the latter every time. For the Alliance, of course.
Halford Wyrmbane says: Oh, of course.
Halford Wyrmbane walks back to his post.
Conversation with Mathias Shaw on the Wind's Redemption started with Halford
  • Gossip <Stay a while and listen.>
Master Mathias Shaw walks over to Halford Wyrmbane.
Master Mathias Shaw says: Tell me, Wyrmbane, how does a paladin come to lead a force of elite soldiers? Shouldn't you be off consecrating temples or some such?
Halford Wyrmbane says: I served as a knight when the Silver Hand was founded. I was dubious that priestly orders could mix with martial skills, so I remained focused on my combat training.
Halford Wyrmbane says: But the more I observed those first paladins, one in particular inspired me... Turalyon. His faith sustained him, fueled his dedication, and made him a great leader.
Halford Wyrmbane says: When he left with the Alliance Expedition to Outland and was presumed lost, the Light opened my eyes. I realized I could be both a soldier and a paladin. I vowed to honor his sacrifice.
Master Mathias Shaw says: When you learned that Turalyon was alive, did it cause you to question your devotion? Your choices?
Halford Wyrmbane says: Quite the opposite. To witness Turalyon's return, and to learn how the Light had sustained him, transformed him, only strengthened my resolve. I know my faith was well placed.
Master Mathias Shaw says: Your faith in the Light? Or in Turalyon?
Halford Wyrmbane says: The Light will endure long after we are gone. But when this war is over, what will you be left with, Shaw?
Master Mathias Shaw says: The next war. And the one after that.
Master Mathias Shaw walks back to his post.
Vision of Stormwind
