Escape to the docks.

  • Get to the docks


If they weren't angry before, they sure are now. We won't survive a minute up on top o' this tank!

Let's join up with the rest and get out of here!!


You will receive:

  • 34g 20s
  • 20540 XP


Against all odds, here we stand. Still alive, an entire army on our heels.

Our ship is waiting. Shall we depart?


On accept:

Thaelin Darkanvil says: That danged army should be here any minute. Let's move!
Archmage Khadgar yells: The docks. Run to the docks. Run. RUN!

Further along:

Ga'nar yells: Come at me, Hellscream!
Farseer Drek'Thar says: Don't be a fool, Ga'nar - Run! We will fight another day.


Yrel yells: Look out!
Yrel says: Keep moving. I see the ships ahead.


Exarch Maladaar says: Where now?
Vindicator Maraad says: Head for the ships at the end of the road.

At the docks:

Archmage Khadgar yells: This way. Go, go, go!
Grommash Hellscream yells: There is no place to run, outsiders. This is MY world. We will find you!
Vindicator Maraad says: Ignore his threats. We will go to Shadowmoon for reinforcements. This time, the draenei will triumph.

As the player comes up the ramp to the dock proper, the spellcasters combine their defensive abilities into a massive barrier between the two pillars at the top of the ramp, preventing the Iron Horde from pursuing.

On complete:

The adventurer joins the Alliance heroes in rushing the ship.
Archmage Khadgar says: Let's get underway then. We will need to build a stronghold if we hope to end the Iron Horde threat. And we're going to need help from the natives.
Iron Horde are killed or kicked off the dock. Leaping aboard, all the enemy orcs are eliminated.
Archmage Khadgar yells: To Shadowmoon!
Khadgar teleports the rescued prisoners aboard as the ship gets underway.
