Take a hit from Varok Saurfang, then report to Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner in Orgrimmar.

  • Take the hit
  • Report back to Lady Sylvanas Windrunner in Orgrimmar.


I have two things to ask of you, and I do not ask them lightly.

First, I need you to retain the favor of the warchief. She will undoubtedly have questions, and seeds of distrust may begin to grow, but she cannot lose you as an ally. Not now. She would not so willingly part with one of her greatest champions.

In order to do so, it will have to look like you faced me in combat, and lost. I trust you can take a hit.

Second, I ask you not to follow me further. I must make this journey alone.


You will receive:

  • 46g 80s
  • 22,300 XP


I have not heard back from Lyana since I sent her on her last mission.

Are you here to complete her report?


Quest accepted
Varok Saurfang says: If you are to remain in the Banshee's favor, she needs to believe that I defeated you. But it has to look like you put up a good fight.
Varok Saurfang says: Ready? Take a deep breath. I fear I lack practice in pulling my punches.

Speak with Varok.

Ready? Take a deep breath. I fear I lack practice in pulling my punches.
Gossip I am ready.
Varok strikes the pay. You get the [Convincing Blow] debuff.
Varok Saurfang says: Ah, good. You are still alive. Bruised... but alive.
Varok Saurfang says: Return to the Banshee Queen. Tell her that I will be no one's pawn.
Varok Saurfang says: Zekhan, I need you to remain in Orgrimmar. Let those who wish to restore the honor of the Horde know that they must not give up hope.
Zekhan says: No way, mon. I'm comin' with ya! Where da high overlord go, I go.
Varok Saurfang says: Not today, my friend. This path I must travel alone.
Varok Saurfang says: Go with honor. You will see me again.
Zekhan says: We betta'. We be countin' on ya.
Zekhan says: Okay, hero. We best get back ta Orgrimmar... before more enemies show up!
Varok runs towards the tower, and Zekhan mounts a bat.

Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Let me see if I have this right... Saurfang single-handedly slew my elite forces and a veteran dark ranger?
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: How fortunate that you escaped with little more than a bruise. Fortunate... but disappointing.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Let me be perfectly clear. You will find the traitor Saurfang. You will deliver him to me. And you will not fail me again.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Now go. Remember your duty to the Horde. We have a war to win.
