Later that evening, near the Moonglades of Cenarius...


Tichondrius suggests that Mannoroth should spill his blood into a pool. Tichondrius believes that the orcs will find the corrupted pool and drink from it.


Tichondrius and Mannoroth teleport into a clearing housing a pool surrounded by furbolgs. The furbolgs flee at Mannoroth's approach, but the pit lord kills one who is a bit too slow.

IconSmall Nathrezim2.gif Tichondrius: Yes. Lord Archimonde demands that Cenarius be destroyed before we launch the invasion of Kalimdor.
IconSmall Mannoroth.gif Mannoroth: I would relish the chance to face him again in combat, but he is crafty and rarely appears in the open.
IconSmall Nathrezim2.gif Tichondrius: Fateful as it sounds, your pet orcs have recently despoiled these forestlands and incurred his wrath. Lord Archimonde and I believe that the orcs are capable of killing Cenarius for us.
IconSmall Mannoroth.gif Mannoroth: They would have little chance against Cenarius. If memory serves, his powers were quite formidable.
IconSmall Nathrezim2.gif Tichondrius: Yes, but so are yours. The blood pact that you made with the orcs long ago still binds them to you. You need only recharge their energies.
IconSmall Mannoroth.gif Mannoroth: Just what are you suggesting, dreadlord?
IconSmall Nathrezim2.gif Tichondrius: Spill your burning blood into this pool. Its corruption will lure the orcs to it, and once they've tasted your blood again, they will be unstoppable!
Mannoroth walks up to the pool and taints it with his blood, causing its purple waters to turn red.
