Escape the Vault.


This will take Mayla some time to adjust to.

That being said, we should return to Thunder Totem.

Just south of here is a tunnel that should take us through the old drogbar slave enclave and then to an opening beyond.

We keep a small Skyhorn outpost there to watch and ensure nothing enters or leaves this vault without us knowing about it. They should be able to fly us back.

I always thought it odd that Ebonhorn never seemed to age. Or at least, he always looked old, but he never got older.

Beta version.

Removed from game The subject of this section did not make it out of the beta stages of World of Warcraft: Legion.

During the beta, the quest started with Wrathion instead. He was followed by Left, Right, the Blacktalon Quartermaster, Tong the Fixer and Smuggler Nightfang.


Well, this is no time to overstay our welcome.

I found the passageway behind me will take us all the way to the other side of the mountain.

Once clear of the caves I should be able to get us to high ground.


Well, these tauren and their spirit journeys are quite intimidating.
