The subject of this article or section is part of Children's Week, a seasonal event that lasts one week. Once the event has run its course, this will no longer be available until next year, but there are no guarantees.

This quest is part of the Children's Week quests where you escort the orcish orphan Grunth.

All of H [10-60] Ridin' the Rocketway, H [10-60] The Fallen Chieftain, and The Banshee Queen must be completed to progress to the next pair of quests.


Take your orphan to meet Lady Sylvanas Windrunner in the Royal Quarter of the Undercity. Call for your orphan if he is not present when you arrive.

  • Meeting with Lady Sylvanas Windrunner

Provided item:


Lady Sylvanas, leader of the Forsaken, is s'posed to be one of the best warriors in the Horde, maybe that's why she is warchief!

I've always wanted to meet her, <name>. Maybe an adventurer like you could get an audience with her! Would you take me to the Royal Quarter of the Undercity to meet Lady Sylvanas? It's a long way away and I bet the guards would never let me in by myself!


Children's Week is the only time I get to leave the orphanage or Orgrimmar.


She's just as fierce as I thought she'd be! But that ambassador sure got real mad when I started talking to Lady Sylvanas.


Orcish Orphan says: Wow, so you're the Banshee Queen? I kind of expected you to be taller!
Orcish Orphan says: My friend at the orphanage said you'd always pick the Forsaken above the Horde and abandon us. Is that true?
Ambassador Sunsorrow says: You forget yourself, child! Do you know who stands before you?
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: I do not require defending, ambassador. Young one, the mantle of warchief is heavy, but I was chosen to bear the burden.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Now I stand for the Horde.
Orcish Orphan says: So it's not true? Thank the ancestors! I wouldn't want you to be my enemy, Lady Sylvanas.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: You needn't worry, child. I am your warchief.
Removed from game The subject of this section was removed from World of Warcraft in patch 7.0.3.

Original version: "...maybe even as good as the warchief himself!"

Orcish Orphan says: Everyone says you had a fight with the warchief and you're going to abandon the Horde. Is that true?
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: I do not require defending, ambassador. Young one, as I have told the warchief, my loyalties have never been in doubt.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: The Horde embraced my people when we stood alone and we Forsaken never forget a debt...
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: You needn't worry, child. The warchief's "observers" are here to make certain of that.
