Now that we've eliminated the deserters from Theramore, it's time to complete this operation. My local contacts have reported that the deserters base their operations in a ship moored on a small island to the southeast of the docks.
Arresting their leader, Gavis Greyshield, should cause the others to lose their will to fight. Find him within the ship and convince him to surrender. I wouldn't be surprised if he puts up a bit of a fight for show, but then surrenders when he understands that he can't win.

Have you completed your assault on the deserter base?
Gavis' request isn't as outlandish as it might sound. With the proper handling, Lady Jaina can return the deserters to the fold, but that is her decision, of course.
It's been a pleasure working with you, <name>. Without your help, I doubt the operation would've gone so smoothly. When I make my report in Stormwind, it will name you as the <class> who ended the deserter threat.
When players defeat Gavis Greyshield, he says the following:
- Gavis Greyshield says: I surrender! Stay your blade!
- Gavis Greyshield says: I will go with you. Just spare my men. They're good lads who've only made a mistake...
