Head to the Southern Rocketway Terminus in Azshara and board the Redhound Two-Seater prototype at the top of the tower.

  • Take Your Orphan to Ride the Rocketway

Provided item:


I heard that the newest members of the Horde, the goblins, built a crazy road in Azshara and it's just for rockets! Can you imagine? Ever since I heard about it, I've wanted to pay a visit. I asked Matron Battlewail about it and she said it's called the Rocketway!

She even told me they're working on a prototype rocket with two seats. D'you wanna go there and see if we can try it out? I bet the experimental rocket is near the Secret Lab at the south end of the Rocketway...


This is gonna be the best Children's Week ever!


That was great! I even learned how to control the rocket and everything! Did you see how I saved us? I'm gonna be a rocket pilot when I grow up!


The Southern Rocketway Terminus is directly south of Bilgewater Harbor.[51.2, 75.6]

When jumping on the rocket:

Orcish Orphan says: This is gonna be fun!
Orcish Orphan says: I've seen goblins riding these things. I know they can go faster!
Orcish Orphan says: I wonder what this button does...
The rocket speeds up.
Orcish Orphan says: Now THAT's more like it!
The rocket suddenly jumps off the track!
Orcish Orphan says: I've figured out how this works. I'm taking control!
Orcish Orphan says: Hang onto your, um... helmet!
The rocket spins in midair, seemingly out of control.
Orcish Orphan says: I'm losing control!
Orcish Orphan says: No, rocket! Don't go that way!
Orcish Orphan says: I think I found the emergency button. Rockets have those, don't they?
The rocket jumps back on the track!
Orcish Orphan says: I did it! I got us back on track!
Orcish Orphan says: This is the only button I haven't pushed yet. Let's give it a try!
The rocket speeds away, launching the orphan and the player into the air!
Orcish Orphan says: Whooooooooooa!
