This dam thing is tougher than it looks.


Khadgar destroying the dam

Dam destroyed

It's a good thing you got to high ground.

Look at the dam!


On accept, a cutscene. The camera tracks southwest up to the top of the fortress.

Blackhand says: What good are a handful of slaves against the Blackrock war machine?
Blackhand says: Blackrocks... CRUSH THEM!
Archmage Khadgar says: You three! Follow <name> onto the battlefield, and listen for my call.
Archmage Khadgar says: I have a plan.
Khadgar teleports away, the energy flashing forth until he reappears at the base of the dam and starts attacking it. Yrel joins him to watch his back.
Cordana Felsong says: We are yours to command, <name>.

Cordana Felsong, Lady Liadrin, and Alliance Qiana Moonshadow / Horde Olin Umberhide join the party.

After killing the requisite numbers
Archmage Khadgar yells: We don't have much more time! Everyone, get to high ground!

Khadgar is at the base of the dam, winding up a massive attack. Find Farseer Drek'Thar uphill to the east of the dam.

On complete
Khadgar finishes winding up his spell by combining orbs of fire, frost, and arcane into one and hurls it, destroying the dam. He quickly runs off in the other direction as the water floods the low ground.

On approaching Cordana, a portal appears beside her. A small mass of water and some Unlucky Fish comes through with Khadgar.

Archmage Khadgar says: Gah!
Archmage Khadgar says: Ugh - oh!
Archmage Khadgar says: Well now.
Archmage Khadgar says: I'd say we made an impact.
