Confront Gul'dan.


Gul'dan is in the cave further into the Gloomspire.

We know that he's about to leave for Talador and Shadowmoon Valley. You must capture him by any means necessary, <name>.

I'll see you back at Throm'var. Good luck.


You will receive: 36g 60s


Giselda the Beautiful

Giselda transformed

On accept:

Image of Archmage Khadgar says: Be careful, my friend. Gul'dan is not to be underestimated no matter how prepared you might be.

Run in the cave and foolishly wind up an attack on Gul'dan.

Gul'dan yells: WHAT?! I remember you.
Gul'dan yells: I'm not that easy.
Gul'dan yells: I won't lower myself to fight you, but, I have an idea.
Gul'dan yells: Giselda, my beauty, your time has come.
Realizing what's about to happen, Giselda sprints away from the altar to no avail as Gul'dan throws her back to it.
Giselda the Beautiful says: What? No....
Gul'dan yells: Have fun dealing with this.
Giselda the Beautiful yells: I'm more beautiful than ever.
Giselda is transformed into a shivarra and becomes attackable. Finish her off.
Gul'dan yells: No matter. Soon there will be enough felblood to make thousands for the Burning Legion.
Gul'dan says: DO give my regards to Khadgar. I've a present coming for him.
Gul'dan teleports away.

Back at the mouth of the cave, the Image of Archmage Khadgar is still there:

Image of Archmage Khadgar says: Unfortunate, but now we know more. You can take the portal back to Throm'var.

It's much faster than running back...


Unfortunate, but not surprising. At least we were able to defeat one of the inner council members.

All is not lost, <name>. We know what the Shadow Council is up to and where they're heading.

We'll regroup in Talador. Together, we'll put an end to Teron'gor and his plans for Auchindoun.

Did you hear that?

An assassin!

On complete, a cutscene, the player is sapped.

Archmage Khadgar says: Commander, what's wrong?
Cordana Felsong says: Khadgar - someone's here!
Garona sneaks behind Khadgar and attempts to backstab him, but Khadgar pops his Ice Block just in time.
Garona Halforcen says: Sorcerous coward.
Cordana Felsong says: Assassin!
Garona and Cordana go at it for a few swings, then Garona leaps back up to a small boulder.
Garona Halforcen says: Gul'dan sends his best.
Garona vanishes.
Cordana Felsong says: I knew it. YOu should've stayed back at the garrison, Archmage.
Archmage Khadgar says: Nonsense. I had that handled. Cool as a cucumber.
