Objectives

Secure passage to Kalimdor from Gleep Chatterswitch at the Shrine of Seven Stars. Then speak with Amber Kearnen, who is scouting Bladefist Bay in Durotar, far away in Kalimdor.

Description

My dream brew can only tell me so much. Its visions are scattered in time and space. But it is clear that a showdown is brewing at the Horde capital of Orgrimmar.

You should go there, and see these events for yourself!

In my dream brew I see two brave Alliance spies alone in Durotar. I see "Amber" and "Sully"...

Perhaps you remember them? I think they need your help!

You'll find Amber and Sully in Kalimdor, just outside the gates to Orgrimmar, at a place called the Dranosh'ar Blockade.

Rewards

You will receive: 19g 84s 50c

Completion

<Name>! I cannot tell you how relieved I am to have some backup.

King Wrynn himself sent us to gather intel on Garrosh's activities and Orgrimmar, but... things are looking grim.

We need your help.

Gains

  • 236000 XP

Notes

On accept:

Lorewalker Cho says: So! Even as the Alliance binds itself ever closer together, the Horde is ripping itself apart.
Lorewalker Cho says: My friend, something is about to give. I wish I could experience the next chapter of the story, but alas, I am just the storyteller.
Lorewalker Cho says: You, brave hero - you are strong enough to leap into the center of events as they transpire.
Lorewalker Cho says: Go now! Go to Durotar! Make your mark as history unfurls around you!

Head to the upper level of the Summer Terrace, and speak with Gleep Chatterswitch at [85.8, 59.5] between Pera Firestone and Sara Finkleswitch:

Never had an unsatisfied customer! Try Chatterswitch Travels today!
Gossip I'd like to travel to Ratchet.
Step onto that teleport. Ratchet, comin' right up!

After standing on the teleport, players appear at the receiving end teleporter at [70.1, 73.0] on the dock of Ratchet in Northern Barrens. Mount up and fly northeast through Durotar to reach the Dranosh'ar Blockade outside of Orgrimmar. East of the blockade, immediately above the entrance to Skull Rock at [54.4, 9.8] is a smoke cloud hiding Sully, Amber, and Boots.

Amber has some gossip text:

I've been in the middle of a few messes in my day, but this is ridiculous!
Gossip Why are you and Sully out here?
The High King has no intention of letting Garrosh continue his mad campaign. It is costing too many innocent lives.
We are here to look for vulnerabilities in Orgrimmar's defenses. The sort of vulnerabilities that an Alliance army could take advantage of.
Unfortunately, it looks like Garrosh has not been idle. He has stepped up recruitment of Kor'kron and turned them into a full-fledged war machine.
Gossip What are the Kor'kron?
They used to be an elite band of orcs created to serve the Warchief as protectors and enforcers of his command.
Now they are an army of incredibly well-trained destroyers. Garrosh's personal legion.

So does Sully:

This ol' cloaking chicken better not fail. She's been actin' up lately.
Gossip Where did Project C4T come from?
Ol' Boots? He's a creation all my own. After Socks, may he rest in peace, I needed a more durable companion.
It was Amber that decided to use him for our mission, so try not to blow him up!
