Deliver Anduin's deployment orders.


Saurfang maintains that the key to taking Orgrimmar is to exploit its multiple points of entry. He led the city's defenses for years, and knows its vulnerabilities better than anyone. We are spread thin as it is, but I trust his judgment in this matter.

We must also fortify Thunder Bluff in case Sylvanas plans to assault it while our forces are committed here.

Deliver these deployment orders to our officers. We will assail all of Orgrimmar's gates at once while also defending Thunder Bluff.


You will receive:

  • 23g 40s
  • 17,850 XP


So much rests on the outcome of this battle.


Our forces are in place. All that is left is to begin the battle.


On accept:

Anduin Wrynn says: Genn, we need you and your best soldiers to flank the city from the western gate.
Genn Greymane says: And leave you here, unguarded? With them?
Varok Saurfang says: If I wanted to harm him, I'd have done it in the Stockades.
Anduin Wrynn says: No one knows Orgrimmar's defenses better than Saurfang. We need to trust each other if we are to succeed.
Genn Greymane says: Very well. But the Banshee is clever. Dividing our forces might play right into her hands.

Jaina is to the east of Anduin's location, standing with First Arcanist Thalyssra and a group of Nightborne and 7th Legion battlemages.

Speaking with Jaina
It is time to end this cycle of hatred.

Gossip I have deployment orders from Saurfang and King Wrynn.

Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: First Arcanist, we are to shield our forces from magical assault as they lay siege to the city.
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: A wise decision. We can do so more effectively from higher ground.
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: Lord Admiral, might I ask about the spellcraft you employed at Lordaeron? The levitating warship?
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Would you believe me if I told you it was a Kul Tiran trade secret?
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: Summoning the ship, perhaps... but as for the enchanted cannons...

Shandris is at the center of the army line, next to Lor'themar Theron.

Speaking with Shandris

At last, Sylvanas will face retribution for Teldrassil

Gossip Saurfang and King Wrynn have assigned your forces to the northern gate.

Lor'themar Theron says: So we are to strike from the north. A sound plan... but there is no telling what treachery Sylvanas has in store for us.
Shandris Feathermoon says: She fought beside you for many years, both in life and in undeath. You must know her well.
Lor'themar Theron says: Perhaps I did, long ago. But now...
Lor'themar Theron says: Hmm... Our forces are few in number. We must make use of the surrounding terrain when we assault the gate.
Shandris Feathermoon says: The sentinels have made use of that terrain for millennia. Our knowledge of the land was old when the Farstriders were young.
Lor'themar Theron says: Yes, of course.

Mayla is at the rear, flanked by Highmountain Skyriders.

Speaking with Mayla

The Legion, the naga, now each other... How much must war cost us before we bring it to an end?

Gossip High Chieftain, you have been tasked with defending the skies above Thunder Bluff.

Mayla Highmountain says: There is little my eagle riders can do while Sylvanas controls the skies. But we can still defend Thunder Bluff.
Mayla Highmountain says: Ji is already there, tending to Baine's wounds. He said he has seen Orgrimmar under siege once before, and does not wish to relive it.
Mayla Highmountain says: We will stand beside our tauren kin and await further orders from Saurfang. Earth Mother watch over us all.

Return to Anduin.
