  • Take Your Orphan to Visit Red Rocks

Provided item:


Matron Battlewail says that when Cairne Bloodhoof died, the Horde lost a 'voice of wisdom'. I don't know what that means, but I always wanted to meet him. Some of the other orphans even have his hoofprint.

Would you take me with you to Mulgore? Our tutor says tauren bring their dead to a place called Red Rocks to honor them. We should go there and see if we can find Cairne.


I want to visit Mulgore more often.


Someday, I'm going to be a great warrior, just like Cairne or the warchief. Everyone will remember my deeds, and the ancestors will welcome my spirit too!


The Red Rocks are in the northeast part of Mulgore, directly east from Thunder Bluff.[60.8, 22.9]

Upon entering the area:

Orcish Orphan says: So this is how a chieftain is honored!
Baine Bloodhoof says: Elders of Thunder Bluff, I have called you together in the sight of the ancestors to honor my father, Cairne Bloodhoof.
Baine Bloodhoof says: Father, you were a man who led wisely, who battled skillfully, and who always sought the best for your people.
Arch Druid Hamuul Runetotem says: When my druids and I were ambushed by renegade orcs, you challenged Warchief Garrosh to trial by combat to answer for their deaths, chieftain.
Hamuul Runetotem places his torch on the pyre.
Kador Cloudsong says: You fought bravely, chieftain, but Grimtotem treachery poisoned Garrosh's weapon and denied you fair combat.
Kador Cloudsong says: May your spirit know peace. Magatha and her kin were driven from the city and your worthy son carries on your legacy.
Kador Cloudsong places his torch on the pyre.
Baine Bloodhoof says: May your spirit continue to guide us, father, as you did in life.
Baine Bloodhoof places his torch on the pyre.
The spirits of Elders Bloodhoof, Runetotem, Skyseer, Mistwalker, Stonepire and Dreamseer appear.
Elder Runetotem says: We know you, Cairne Bloodhoof, and your people have told us of your deeds. You are welcome at the hearth of the ancestors.
The elders bow before Cairne Bloodhoof as his spirit rises from the pyre and they walk away together before vanishing.
