The battle

Tyrande Whisperwind and her night elf Sentinels managed to set up a base near Moonglade Isle. The Sentinel scouts found that the only way to Moonglade Isle was blocked off by a crude Horde settlement. The scouts also found that Malfurion's barrow den was in danger of being discovered and destroyed by the Scourge forces in the area. Ghouls from the nearby outpost were harvesting lumber from trees that were the only barrier between the barrow den, and therefore, its only protection.

The Sentinels attacked the Orcs. Soon the Orcish base was leveled and the Orcs were routed. Tyrande rallied her forces and defeated all three of the Primal Guardians and then proceeded to seize the Horn of Cenarius from its pedestal.

Tyrande sounded the horn and Furion Stormrage awoke. Furion then summoned an army of Treants which attacked the undead outpost, butchering them with ease.


Main Quests

Availablequest BTNBattleRoar.png Furion Stormrage

  • Reach Moonglade Isle behind the Orc base
  • Slay the Primal Guardians
  • Bring Tyrande to the Horn of Cenarius
  • Slumbering Furion Stormrage must survive

The Undead are about to encroach upon the Barrow Den of the slumbering Furion Stormrage. Tyrande cannot reach the Undead to stop them; she must go past the Orc base and retrieve the Horn of Cenarius from the Primal Guardians to awaken the Arch-Druid.



IconSmall Tyrande.gif Tyrande Whisperwind: With Cenarius dead, it falls to us to awaken the druids. We must recover the demigod's horn from the sacred Moonglade Isle. Only its clarion call can awaken the druids from their slumber.
IconSmall NightElf Female.gif Archer: But, Priestess, the orcs have established a crude settlement upon the isle. We'll need to fight our way through them to reach Cenarius' horn!
Two huntresses run up to Tyrande.
IconSmall NightElf Female.gif Huntress: Priestess Tyrande, thank Elune we found you. The undead are advancing upon the nearby Barrow Dens! The Dens seem abandoned, but--
IconSmall Tyrande.gif Tyrande Whisperwind: There is one druid sleeping within them, sister... Furion Stormrage. He is the wisest and most powerful of all the druids. He must be warned that the Legion has returned!
IconSmall NightElf Female.gif Huntress: Then we'd better hurry. If the undead overtake his Den before he's awakened...
IconSmall Tyrande.gif Tyrande Whisperwind: Let us make haste, my sisters! All our hopes rest on Furion's awakening!

During the Mission

IconSmall Orc Male.gif Raider: Strike fast! Ensnare them all before they regroup!
IconSmall Orc Male.gif Grunt: Lok-Tar Ogar! For Warchief Thrall!
IconSmall Orc Male.gif Grunt: These elves are stronger than we thought!
IconSmall Cenarian Female.gif Dryad: Priestess, the undead draw near the Barrow Den! Shan'do Stormrage will be defenseless!
15 trees remaining
IconSmall Cenarian Female.gif Dryad: Priestess, the undead have nearly reached the Barrow Den! You must hurry and recover the horn!
All trees are cut down (Mission Failed)
IconSmall Cenarian Female.gif Dryad: Priestess, the undead have surged forward! The Barrow Den has fallen!
IconSmall Tyrande.gif Tyrande Whisperwind: Furion, my love, I wasn't fast enough to save you. I have failed us all.


IconSmall Tyrande.gif Tyrande Whisperwind: At last! The horn of Cenarius! Now we can awake Furion!

Tyrande blows the horn and it echoes throughout the land. Furion awakens before the undead reach him.

IconSmall Malfurion.gif Furion Stormrage: The horn has sounded, and I have come as promised! I smell the stench of decay and corruption in our land. That angers me greatly.

Furion turns some nearby trees into treant warriors.

IconSmall Malfurion.gif Furion Stormrage: Come forth, you defenders of old! Crush these invaders as you did in ages past!

The treants run off and attack the undead.
