Slay Captain Doren.


You didn't see Captain Doren while you were out there, did you?

That sniveling Alliance leader must be in hiding somewhere. If he wasn't in that airbase, he can't be far. Search the perimeter - try searching the cave southwest of the main airfield. I want the Alliance gone from here!


You will receive: 19g 60s


The Alliance have been routed. You, Nazgrim, Kiryn, Gorrok, Shokia, and Rivett need a base of operations.

These flags will have to be changed.

For the Horde!


When first engaging Doren:

Captain Doren yells: Filthy animals! Keep your stink away from this land!

When Captain Doren is on low health, he transforms into a hideous form!

Captain Doren says: NO... I've let my king down. I... I...
Captain Doren says: AAAHHHHH!!
Captain Doren yells: Your Horde has no power here.

After killing Doren:

General Nazgrim says: You finished him - well done!
General Nazgrim says: What is this... shadow? What is the Alliance playing at?
Taran Zhu says: Your foe was overwhelmed by a dark energy we call the "Sha." It thrives on negative emotions, such as doubt.
Taran Zhu says: It has been many years since I have seen it manifest so dramatically.
General Nazgrim says: You again. Do you see it now? Alliance arrogance!
General Nazgrim says: Help us rout them from your land, and your kind can stand tall and proud with the Horde!
Taran Zhu says: My people have stood tall without you for thousands of years.
General Nazgrim says: Are you afraid to fight?
Taran Zhu says: We are not afraid to fight. Our warriors, while few in number, are extremely skilled.
Taran Zhu says: But we will not participate in this... race war... bloodbath of yours.
Taran Zhu says: Your conflict will have immense consequences here. Do NOT bring your war to these shores!
General Nazgrim says: This is a hostile land, and we have no reinforcements. We're going to have to improvise, champion.
General Nazgrim says: But our orders stand - Hellscream will have his foothold here. We will NOT allow the Alliance to lay claim to this new world!

Feel free to read Doren's Logs that are on the table in the cave.
