Observe Sylvanas's discussion with Princess Talanji.


I'll admit, I did not think the Little Lion had it in him to kill King Rastakhan. Blood has been spilled, and vengeance must be had.

Give me a moment to express my condolences, then come with me. We have more to do to win this war.


You will receive:


Derek Proudmoore will be twisted to become a weapon against Katherine and Jaina Proudmoore.

The Allliance[sic] brought an army to kill Rastakhan. All we'll need is one Forsaken to kill their leaders.

I will contact you when your aid is further needed. In the meantime, continue the fight against the Alliance, we must survive until this plan is ready.


Upon acceptance
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: My condolences on your loss, princess. Excuse me... Queen Talanji.
Princess Talanji says: Titles mean little to me now. I must know... with de Zandalari navy in ruins, does de Horde intend to abandon us?
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: We do not turn our back on our allies, Talanji. The war campaign has taken an unfortunate turn, to be certain... but our cause is not lost.
Nathanos Blightcaller walks to Sylvanas.
Nathanos Blightcaller says: My queen... reports are coming in from all outposts. The Alliance is tightening its grip. Victory is within their grasp.
Baine Bloodhoof says: Perhaps we can open negotiations--
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: The Alliance slays the leader of the Zandalari, and you speak of negotiations?
Sylvanas turns and steps closer to the crowd.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: No. This war will not end until we stand victorious. Until the Little Lion kneels before my throne.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Meet me aboard the Banshee's Wail. I have a plan to ensure the Proudmoore family pays dearly for Rastakhan's death.
Sylvanas leaves, followed by Nathanos and Baine. Baine made a salute to Talanji before leaving.
Aboard the Banshee's Wail
Sylvanas, Nathanos and Kyra gather around the coffin which contains the corpse of Derek Proudmoore. Eitrigg is also present.

Speak with Sylvanas:

Good, you're here. We will begin.
The Proudmoore family was behind the death of King Rastakhan.
It is only suiting that we deal with them first.
Gossip What are you planning to do?

Baine appears.
Baine Bloodhoof says: Sylvanas!
Baine Bloodhoof says: What reason could you possibly have for this madness?!
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Derek Proudmoore was a hero to the Kul Tirans.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: They are sure to stage a rescue attempt when they learn of his fate.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: And once his mind has been properly conditioned, we will allow the Proudmoores to recover their long-lost prince...
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: ... so he can slaughter them in their sleep.
Baine Bloodhoof says: This is too far!
Baine Bloodhoof says: How many times must we forsake our honor?
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: There can be only victory or death for us, Baine.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: And death is mine to master.
Kyra resurrects Derek.
Derek Proudmoore says: What...what is this? Why am I... What have you done to me?!
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Why Lord Proudmoore, I've given you a chance to reunite with your family.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: You should be grateful.
Derek Proudmoore says: <Derek Wailing>
