Kill Tharil'zun and Gath'Ilzogg.


Only the Blackrock high command remains, <name>. They're all holed up in Stonewatch Keep, directly south of our position here at Keeshan's Post. I want you and the rest of Bravo Company to enter Stonewatch and put an end to the Blackrock orc invasion.

<Name>, no survivors.


This doesn't look good.


<The Bravo Company field kit beeps loudly.>

Come in, <name>. Are you there? If you can hear me: Blackrock has the upper hand. I repeat. Blackrock has the upper hand. GET BRAVO COMPANY OUT OF TH...

<Troteman cuts out.>

("It's a trap! Get out!")


Accepting the quest puts the company in the player's party, which is a good thing as the only orcs remaining are elites!

Waiting outside the keep proper at [60.3, 47.5] is Tharil'zun with two guards.

Tharil'zun says: [Broken Common] Death here for you.

Gath'Ilzogg is not in the keep, but southwest of it at [57.8, 56.3] standing on the very edge of the broken bridge.

Gath'Ilzogg says: Your corpses will feed the Blackrock war machine.

He's a death knight, though... That's odd. Killing both of them completes the quest automatically.

John J. Keeshan quotes:

  • If I didn't mention it earlier, <name>, welcome to Bravo Company.
  • The world's gone to hell, <name>.
  • When this is all over I'm gonna buy you a drink, <name>.
  • You're alright, <name>. Not like those no good, money grubbing politicians in Stormwind.
  • I remember a time when there were no orcs. Can you imagine it? No damned orcs!
  • After we clean this place up, maybe we can start rebuilding it. Maybe they'll give it to Bravo Company. We'll call it: BRAVO KEEP!
  • Maybe we'll have peace again someday. And maybe I'll poop gold out my butt.
  • (attacking) You're nothing!
  • (killing Blackrock orc) He won't be gettin' up from that one.
