Warchief of the Horde concludes the storyline of Battle for Azeroth.


Witness the gathering of champions.


The meeting to decide the next Warchief of the Horde is about to begin.

The other leaders of the Horde have already arrived. They are waiting for you inside the embassy.

Speak with me when you are ready, and we will greet the others together.


You will receive:

  • 23g 40s
  • 17,850 XP


Speak with me when you are ready, and we will greet the others together.


It has been decided, then. There will no longer be a Warchief of the Horde.

It seems that we have been made witnesses to the beginning of a new era...


Speak to Valeera.

If history has anything to teach us, it is that peace between the Alliance and Horde is perillously short-lived.
Gossip I am ready to meet with the other champions of the Horde.

A cutscene will play.

Valeera is seen sitting against the wall, with the adventurer standing next to her. Both watch on as the meeting commences.
Lor'themar Theron says: The Alliance has sent word. They have agreed to the armistice. This bitter war is finally over.
Baine Bloodhoof says: At last we can begin to heal our wounded Earth Mother... and the wounded Horde as well.
Lor'themar Theron says: One question remains. Who will serve as warchief? Perhaps, you, Thrall, would--
Thrall says: No. I told Saurfang I would not lead the Horde again.
Thrall says: But perhaps the question is not who should become warchief... but whether there should be one at all.
Lor'themar Theron says: Though the Horde has changed through the years--for good or ill--we have always looked to a warchief to guide us forward.
Baine Bloodhoof says: That legacy must end. The war nearly cost us everything. There is no place for a warchief in a time of peace.
Thrall says: It is true--the Horde has changed. Our ranks have grown, and new voices have stepped forth to lead.
Thrall says: This is what makes us strong. All of us, building a new future--together.

After you've turned in the quest, you can follow up with some of the participants outside the embassy.

Lor'themar and Thalyssra
Warchief of the Horde - Lor'themar and Thalyssra

Lor'themar and Thalyssra

Lor'themar Theron says: Thank you again for leading our forces in Nazjatar alongside me, Thalyssra. Your insight and courage were key to our victory.
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: It was an honor, Lor'themar. I am relieved the war is finally over. Now you have no excuse to refuse my invitation to visit Suramar.
Lor'themar Theron says: Well, uh... I have been away from Silvermoon for some time. No doubt my people require--
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: Halduron has assured me that Quel'Thalas is quite secure. And Rommath said that if you put up a fuss, he will teleport you to the Nighthold himself.
Lor'themar Theron says: It seems my closest allies are conspiring against me!
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: Would it really take a conspiracy for you to spend time alone with me?
Lor'themar Theron says: No, my lady. It would be my pleasure.
First Arcanist Thalyssra says: A suitably chivalrous answer, Regent Lord. There may be hope for you yet! Perhaps I can even teach you to relish the... simpler joys of life.
Lor'themar Theron says: Perhaps you can, First Arcanist. Perhaps you can.
Overlord Geya'rah and Lilian Voss
Warchief of the Horde - Lilian and Geya'rah

Lilian and Geya'rah

Overlord Geya'rah says: The Mag'har have never known life without a warchief. It will be hard for them--and for me. But it seems your people have lost a queen as well.
Lilian Voss says: The Forsaken are torn by turmoil and doubt. Many still love Sylvanas, even after all she has done. Others believe their home remains in the Horde.
Overlord Geya'rah says: And you? Where do your loyalties lie?
Lilian Voss says: Where they always have--with the Forsaken. To be raised into undeath is to be forever haunted by the ghosts of your past. A caring hand can offer comfort through the pain.
Overlord Geya'rah says: I see no crown upon your head. Are you the new queen they seek?
Lilian Voss says: No. I'll speak on my people's behalf, but I won't rule them. There is another I believe will prove better suited to that task... when the time is right.
Overlord Geya'rah says: The love you hold for your people burns as bright as my own for the Mag'har. I wish you good fortune, Lilian Voss.
Lilian Voss says: To us all, Overlord.
Baine Bloodhoof and Rokhan
Warchief of the Horde - Baine and Rokhan

Baine and Rokhan

Rokhan says: Since da death of Vol'jin, da Darkspear been lookin' ta me ta guide dem.
Rokhan says: I been fightin' for dem a long, long time... but dat don't mean I deserve ta be deir chieftain.
Baine Bloodhoof says: I felt much the same when my father died. It happened suddenly, and I feared that I was unprepared to take his place.
Baine Bloodhoof says: But I was ready, just as you are. You proved that in Zuldazar and at Stromgarde. The Darkspear have faith in you, and so do I.
Rokhan says: Heh. Ya best be stoppin' da flattery, Baine, before it be goin' ta me head.
Rokhan says: But... da Darkspear do be needin' a leader. A voice on da council. And if it gotta be me... den it be me.
Baine Bloodhoof says: Trust your judgment, Rokhan. It has led you this far.
Rokhan says: It be havin' a lotta help. From da Darkspear, from da loa... and from da Horde.
Thrall and Gazlowe
Warchief of the Horde - Gazlowe and Thrall

Gazlowe and Thrall

Thrall says: Gallywix has fled the city along with the rest of Sylvanas' inner circle. That leaves the Bilgewater Cartel without its trade prince.
Thrall says: Gazlowe, it was your cleverness and ingenuity that built the walls of Orgrimmar. I cannot think of anyone I would trust more to take over as leader.
Gazlowe says: A cartel ain't a clan or a tribe, Thrall. Steamwheedle, Bilgewater... it don't matter who supplies the cash--so long as the pay's good.
Gazlowe says: "Under new management" is just another way of sayin' "opportunity's knockin'". So, sure... you got yourself a deal!
Thrall says: Can you be sure that none of the goblins here are still being funded by Gallywix?
Gazlowe says: Oh, I guarantee they are. That's why I'm gonna pay 'em more than that cheapskate.

Outside of the embassy from the Valley of Strength, Dark Ranger Velonara can now be found.

Warchief of the Horde - Velonara

Dark Ranger Velonara

Greetings, <adventurer>.
These are interesting times.
Gossip I see you remained in Orgrimmar.
We dark rangers were fiercely loyal to Sylvanas. We trusted her... followed her commands.
It is clear that our loyalty was never truly reciprocated.
Some of my sisters and brothers have chosen to remain at the Dark Lady's side. I, and many others, have not.
<Velonara's expression becomes steely. Determined.>
I refuse to be a slave to this torment.
Both the sin'dorei and Forsaken are my kin. I stand with them, and with the Horde.
