The Swift Vengeance
The Swift Vengeance is a battleship of the Forsaken navy used during the Fourth War. Some time after Sylvanas Windrunner raised Derek Proudmoore and attempted to torture him into subservience, she had him moved from Dazar'alor onto the Swift Vengeance. Baine Bloodhoof, Thomas Zelling, and a Horde champion attacked the ship and stole it. The ship then sailed to the ruins of Theramore where Baine returned Derek to his sister, Jaina. Afterward, Thomas took the ship near Chandlery Wharf to leave it under the guise of an Irontide pirate raid gone wrong while the champion was sent to Nathanos Blightcaller to report that they saw a Forsaken vessel in that area.
Notes and trivia
- This is the second newer-type Forsaken battleship seen, the first being the Death's Advance, Sylvanas' flagship. Though the distinction was not made in game, the two were stated to be different by the Blizzard creator.
- Notably, the Artstation preview to show off the Death's Advance includes the Unexpected Reunion cinematic; where the vessel in the cinematic would actually be The Swift Vengeance.
- During and of the Horde War Campaign, the ship is considered a subzone in Tiragarde Sound and Dustwallow Marsh respectively, as well as during of the Alliance War Campaign in Dustwallow. It is not present there after the questline is finished.
- Patch 8.0.1 (2018-07-17): Added.
