Kill Darkmaster Gandling within Andorhal.


The Scholomance is one of the few Scourge holdouts remaining west of the Thondroril. The headmaster of Scholomance, a cultist by the name of Darkmaster Gandling, has made an appearance on the battlefield.

This will be his final mistake.

You will find Gandling in a square near the southern end of town. I want you to fight and weaken Gandling. I will join you to help finish him off.


You will receive: 1g 10s

You will be able to choose one of these rewards:

Inv shoulder 136v3.png [Burden of Time] Inv gauntlets 106.png [Gandling's Gloves]


Excellently done, <name>. And now, with the leader of the Scourge forces eliminated from Andorhal, we bide our time.


On accept
Thassarian says: Gandling is strong, but do not worry. I will join you shortly after you begin to fight him.
On engaging Gandling
Darkmaster Gandling says: Prepare to die, <race>!
Nearing Gandling's defeat
Darkmaster Gandling says: Your life is forfeit.
Thassarian yells: For the Alliance!
Koltira Deathweaver yells: For the Horde!
Darkmaster Gandling says: Enough of this. The Cult of the Damned doesn't need Andorhal. This worthless city is yours to fight over.
Thassarian says: Koltira! I had heard rumors that you were here in Lordaeron.
Koltira Deathweaver says: You heard correctly, Thassarian. I wanted to give you a chance to kill me again.
Thassarian laughs
Thassarian says: It looks like it may have to come to that.
Koltira Deathweaver says: Yes, it may... but not today. With the Scourge out of the way, I plan to pull my troops back and regroup.
Thassarian says: I see. Then I will do the same.
Thassarian says: But you must be aware, Koltira: we are brothers no longer. You are a member of the Horde now, and I of the Alliance.
Thassarian says: Eventually, we will fight this battle for Andorhal, and only one of us can walk off the battlefield victorious.
Koltira Deathweaver says: Yes, I know. And don't think I'll go easy on you.
Thassarian laughs
Thassarian says: Very well. I look forward to it.
Thassarian whispers: You are not to speak to ANYONE about the agreement that was made today, <name>. Consider this an order from your direct superior.
