Return to Angrathar concludes the main Scourge questline for the Horde in Dragonblight, culminating in an impressive cutscene at Angrathar the Wrathgate. After the cutscene is complete, the Alliance, Horde and Scourge forces at the gate are all gone. In their place is Alexstrasza and Korialstrasz.


Speak with Saurfang the Younger at the Kor'kron Vanguard and tell him of your victory over the Scourge.


With Antiok slain and the scythe in our possession, the frost wyrm assaults upon your forces at Angrathar will halt. The wyrms that remain in the Dragonblight will be hunted and destroyed, their bones returning to the earth.

The time to make your final stand is now, <name>. Return to the Kor'kron Vanguard and notify Saurfang the Younger.


My father was right about you, <name>. Everything that he said has come to pass - only one final duty remains unfulfilled. I will now lead the Kor'kron to the front line. The time to end this war is at hand. The Lich King's tyranny ends today!

Take my post now, <name>, and stand guard over our forces.


Completing this quest will display a rather impressive cutscene, and awards  Veteran of the Wrathgate.

On completion:

Korialstrasz says: My Queen, do they know?
Alexstrasza the Life-Binder says: No, my beloved.
Alexstrasza the Life-Binder says: [Draconic] Ashj zila gul kirasath lok ante il lok buras danashj Gul gul
Korialstrasz nods.
Korialstrasz says: They will not.
Alexstrasza whispers: Come to me, <name>.

The line in Draconic means "They must not discover the fate of the young paladin. Not yet." when run through the in-game translator. This was the first clue that Bolvar had survived... one way or another.

Originally, this quest was simply one more step in the quest chain. However, with changes to Kalimdor for the Cataclysm expansion, those further quests were removed. The reputation gain for this quest was increased as well.
