Horde Adventurers at last see the fruits of their labors. Kingslayer Orkus' sacrifice has allowed High Warlord Cromush's plan to come together, leading to the Stormpike Apocalypse. Adventurers simply need to watch as Hillsbrad is delivered to the Horde...


Witness the Stormpike Apocalypse.

  • Witness the Stormpike Apocalypse.


Before we continue, let us have a moment of silence for our fallen brother, Orkus, for without him, we would have been destroyed by the Stormpike onslaught. This is for you, brother!

<Cromush takes a knee.>

Now, <name>, do not think that I forgot your part in all of this! That is why you get the honors of detonating the goblin pocket-nukes.

Are you ready? FOR THE HORDE!


You will be able to choose one of these rewards:
Inv misc cape 14.png [Cloak of Treason] Inv belt 18.png [Pocket-Nuke Belt]
Inv gauntlets 18.png [Broken Fingers of Hillsbrad] Inv gauntlets 18.png [Nuke Resistant Gauntlets]

You will also receive:


With the fingers destroyed and the hand shattered, the Stormpike will have no choice but scurry back to their cave in Alterac Valley.

<Cromush spits.>

Warchief Hellscream will hear about your bravery, <name>.

And rest assured that he will know of the Frostwolf clan's treason!


The camera switches to Gavin's Naze. Magruder and Lieutenant Jan Lagrave inspects a nearby Goblin Pocked-Bomb.
Magruder says: Holy... What in the hell is this?
Lieutenant Jan Lagrave says: Ye can defuse it, right Magruder?!
Magruder says: Are you kidding me? Look at all this crap! There's like a million wires. I'm a three wire kind of guy...
Magruder says: RUN!!!!!!
The camera zooms out, seeing the goblin pocket-nukes detonating at Gavin's Naze, the Headland, Corrahn's Dagger and Sofera's Naze.
High Warlord Cromush yells: LOK'TAR! HILLSBRAD IS OURS!
