The Warchief Awaits begins the War of the Thorns world event from the Horde perspective. This quest is offered automatically on login to players who have completed the Legion epilogue storyline, at least up through H [45] The Blood of Azeroth.


Report to Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner in the Undercity.



There are important matters I would like to discuss with you, but discretion is of the utmost importance.

Meet me in my chambers in the Undercity where I can assure our privacy has not been compromised.

Ensure that you are not followed; Orgrimmar has become riddled with SI:7 spies. It would seem that that King Anduin and Mathias Shaw are desperate to know what our next move is. How admirable.


You will receive:

  • 1g 94s
  • 1,650 XP
  • +10 reputation with Horde


Glad you could make it so quickly, <name>.


On accept
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Though our long war against the Legion has ended, the Horde cannot afford a moment of respite.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Meet me in my chambers in the Undercity, where we can discuss our next move... discretely.

Upon arriving into the Royal Quarter of the Undercity, Sylvanas is surrounded by Horde leaders, Lor'themar Theron, Baine Bloodhoof, Jastor Gallywix, as well as Nathanos Blightcaller and Royal Dreadguards behind her. Sharlindra and Aleric Hawkins also turned to face Sylvanas while Bragor Bloodfist is absent.
