Lord-Commander Arete wants you to deal with Grand Admiral Westwind. Return to the lord-commander upon Death's Rise after you have done so.

Suggested Players [5]

Provided Item:


When High General Abbendis was confronted at New Hearthglen, the grand admiral protected himself within an impenetrable sphere of magic before making his escape.

I am particularly adept at nullifying magic.

Take this to use against him inside Hidden Hollow when he puts the sphere up. I wish that I could be there to see the look on his face when you do it.

Deal with him and then return to me on Death's Rise.

<The lord-commander laughs with abandon.>

The fools were taken in by the demons yet again and now they are destroyed!

I trust that my favorite <class> will stick around long enough to help us finish off the rest of them? Perhaps one of these would convince you?

Grand Admiral Westwind yells: WHAT?! No matter. Even without my sphere, I will crush you! Behold my true identity and despair!
Westwind transforms into the Dreadlord Mal'Ganis. While he gains a mana bar and more health overall, he will still be down the same percentage from his Westwind form. He has 3994 MP and at 100%, he would have 327,000 HP. He gains at least three abilities: Carrion Swarm, Sleep, and [Vampiric Touch].
Dreadlord Mal'Ganis yells: Gah! I spent too much time in that weak little shell.

Dreadlord Mal'Ganis yells: ENOUGH! I waste my time here. I must gather my strength on the homeworld.
He opens a portal and walks to it, then turns around.
Dreadlord Mal'Ganis yells: You'll never defeat the Lich King without my forces. I'll have my revenge... on him AND you!
He turns back and walks through the portal, which closes behind him.
