Northshire Abbey is the eighth mission of the Orc campaign in Warcraft: Orcs & Humans.

Mission briefing

The destruction of Blackhand's outpost has left him in a weak position. The Shadow Council, sensing your rise in power, orders the assassination of Blackhand and elevates you to the position of War Chief. A wolfrider brings you news that our best spy, the half-orc Garona, has been discovered by the Humans of Northshire Abbey and imprisoned there. She has valuable information concerning new and powerful magiks that would aid you in the destruction of your counterpart - King Llane. Trusting no one to complete this vital mission in time, you must find her, and then completely destroy the abbey to protect her secrets.

  • Brigands can only be found in this mission. Interestingly enough, despite being described as ruthless outlaws, they actually help the other humans here, but the same could also be said of the various monsters imprisoned here.
  • Several imprisoned Peons can be found in this mission. They can be rescued, but cannot fight, and their survival has no effect on the mission's outcome. Ruthless players can use them as expendable scouts, or kill them and have their Necrolytes raise them as The Dead.
  • Garona and the imprisoned Peons have only 4 Hit Points remaining. There is no way to heal them.
