For the Alliance version of this quest, see A [90] The Measure of a Leader.

The Measure of a Leader begins the Patch 5.1 portion of Wrathion's legendary quest chain. Before he will offer this quest, players must have completed N [90] Breath of the Black Prince (and all of its prerequisites), and set up Domination Point off the southwestern beach of Krasarang Wilds by completing H [15-35] Domination Point.

Completing this stage of the legendary quest will require the champion to reach revered standing with The Black Prince by killing Alliance units and players in Krasarang Wilds, to kill High Marshal Twinbraid, a raid boss at Lion's Landing, and to win matches in the new battlegrounds Silvershard Mines and the Temple of Kotmogu. Once all of those tests are complete, Wrathion will award his champion the  [Eye of the Black Prince], which adds a prismatic socket to any of the nine Sha-Touched weapons.

For now, share a snack with Wrathion.

We've progressed to a new part of the Pandaren campaign. Your Warchief aims to impress the Pandaren with the full might of the Horde's military. He will lay claim to the resources of this land, with or without Pandaren aid.

I understand your leader's aims, but I really want to understand the Warchief himself. What drives him? And where is the Horde ultimately going? I'd like to talk to you about this leader of yours.


You will receive: 9g 92s 50c


Like all great leaders, Garrosh has greatly extended himself. Just what is he ultimately capable of?

More importantly, what YOU are capable of? Fresh bloodshed along the coast gives us an opportunity to find out...


Talk with Wrathion to start the script event:

Gossip Let's talk!
Wrathion says: Tong! Something to eat, please.
Wrathion says: Garrosh Hellscream! Warchief of the Horde.
Wrathion says: He did not always command such power.
Wrathion says: On Draenor, he was a miserable wretch. The actions of his father hung heavy on his heart.
Wrathion says: I understand you, Garrosh. I know what it is like to bear the weight of your father's deeds.
Wrathion says: A warrior like Garrosh comes to power with something to prove.
Wrathion says: Your Horde finds itself at a turning point. This war will define you.
Wrathion says: What IS the Horde?
Wrathion says: Is it an instrument of vengeance, hellbent to carve out a future for its people?
Garrosh roars.
Wrathion says: Is it a refuge for those who need shelter, a commonwealth of the downtrodden, built for mutual support?
Thrall appears to the side of Garrosh, summoning lightning.
Wrathion says: Or is it an alliance of convenience, a confederacy of unlikely partners free to pursue their own agendas?
Sylvanas Windrunner appears.
Wrathion says: This is my question to you: What is the SOUL of the Horde?
Wrathion says: We will find the answers here in Pandaria.
Wrathion says: Show me what your Horde is made of, Champion!
Wrathion says: Prove to me that your Horde is worthy of ruling over Azeroth.
