Kill 12 Stonesplinter Troggs or Stonesplinter Scouts.

We need to protect the Loch, <name>! With so many of the King's soldiers fighting valiantly on remote battlefields, we've become overwhelmed on the home front. Troggs are tunneling up from every crevice! The trogg infestation poses the largest threat to Ironforge.

We need you, brave adventurer, to venture forth and lay waste to the trogg threat. Slay twelve stonesplinter troggs and venture back.


You will be able to choose one of these rewards:

Loch Modan is under siege, <name>! We need every able-bodied member of the Alliance to aid our cause. Have you killed those troggs yet?


Well done, <name>! You demonstrated uncanny courage on the battlefield. Our war against the Troggs will be won with efforts such as yours. You have served King Magni well.


Pick up A [5-30] The Trogg Threat before heading out. Head northwest between the two statues and take the first right to enter Stonesplinter Valley, trogg country. Then go on a genocidal rampage.
