- Glory of the Ancestors — Resurrects all fallen allies within view.

- "From this moment, until the end of days I live and die - For the Horde!"
It has been many years since my people swore our loyalty to the Horde.
The Horde aided my people in our time of need, and I am here to speak well of that accord.
The Highmountain tribe is known even to us in the North, and respect must be paid.
Notes and trivia
- During the Legion alpha, Roanauk appeared before Mayla Highmountain along with Baine Bloodhoof and Sunwalker Dezco to ask for help to battle the Burning Legion on the Broken Shore. This was scrapped before the official launch.
- Roanauk is possibly a reference to the Roanoke Colony, the lost British colony on an island off the coast of North Carolina, and the nearby Native American tribe the colony was named after. This could possibly be a reference to the idea that taunka are a forgotten tribe of tauren that colonized Icemist Village in Northrend some time in the distant past.
- Patch 3.0.2 (2008-10-14): Added.
