Escape the Ruins of Gilneas with Arthura and the corpse of Lord Godfrey.

  • Escape the Ruins of Gilneas.


With our mission objective secured, the time has come for us to make our escape. Though Gilneas is lost, with the aid of Godfrey and his lieutenants we will have it back in no time at all.

Go now, <name>. Fly back with Arthura to the Forsaken Front in southern Silverpine Forest. The Banshee Queen awaits your arrival.


You will be able to choose one of these rewards:
Inv boots chain 06.png [Treads of the True Plan] Inv belt 02.png [Godfrey's Belt]
Inv misc cape 14.png [Cloak of Secret Purpose] Inv belt 02.png [Godfrey's Waistband]

You will also receive:


I had no doubt that you would success, <name>. I hope you can understand why I kept the true purpose of your mission a secret. Should Crowley and Bloodfang have found out about our plan, they would have surely gotten to Godfrey first and disposed of the body.

Stand by, <name>. The time of their rebirth is at hand.


Arthura says: What about you, Belmont. How will you get back?
Deathstalker Commander Belmont says: I'll be fine, Arthura. The worgen lost our scent. It's doubtful that they even know we're here.
Deathstalker Commander Belmont says: I'll probably make it back to the Forsaken Front before you two, er, three.
Deathstalker Commander Belmont says: Now move out! You must not keep the Banshee Queen waiting.
Arthura says: So be it. Farewell, Belmont.
As you fly up from the shore, a group of worgen cast Frostbolts on you!
Arthura says: Oh my... hang on tight!
Arthura keeps on flying, passing the Forsaken Forward Command where the worgen are howling, the Forsaken slain, the 7th Legion marching down the road and the structures burning.
