34g 20s



Side turret
An attacking Iron Horde tank
Bomb cart
Firing controls

Enter the Worldbreaker Side Turret and destroy 200 Iron Horde troops.


The way I see it, there's two ways to keep this tank from going through the portal: break the tank, or USE the dang tank ta' BLOW UP the dang portal.

I can get 'er workin', I just need time. Hop in that turret off the starboard bow and keep 'em off my back.


You will receive:

  • 34g 20s
  • 20550 XP


Almost there, <name>.


Takin' away Gul'dan was one thing, but blowin' up the whole damned portal? That's my kind of solution.

Now, I think we'd better get out of here before that army gets to us.


Start the quest and bedlam reigns:

Thaelin Darkanvil yells: Orcs off the starboard bow!
Archmage Khadgar says: Looks like we arrived just in time.
Thaelin Darkanvil says: Hop inta that turret and keep 'em away!
Thaelin Darkanvil says: I'll see if I can get this thing goin'. Khadgar, buy me some time!
Archmage Khadgar says: We will do what we can, Thaelin.
Archmage Khadgar says: <Name>, keep these orcs off of us!

Use the vehicle UI to blow up anything that moves. At first blood:

Hansel Heavyhands yells: Ahh ha ha haaa! Nice shot!

At 25 kills:

Yrel yells: Tank coming over the rise! Look out!

At 30:

Thaelin Darkanvil says: These controls don't make SENSE. Remind me never ta drive a tank built by an orc.

An Iron Horde Obliterator starts attacking - take it out before going back to the footsoldiers. At 40, two tanks appear:

Thrall yells: Hold strong, everyone. Here they come!

At 75:

Hansel Heavyhands yells: They're bringin' up explosives! <Name>, destroy those carts before they get close!

Hitting a cart will kill just about everything within 20 yards, drastically inflating the kill count. At around 120:

Vindicator Maraad says: There's so many of them...
Farseer Drek'Thar yells: Don't you give up yet, paladin.
Drek'Thar casts [Bloodlust].

At 200:

Thaelin Darkanvil says: That's it! I've got 'er runnin'! Let's finish this.

Run up to Thaelin and press the Main Cannon Trigger.

A cutscene takes place.

The cannon fires and successfully destroys the Dark Portal. All the Warlords (excluding Gul'dan) appear at a high peak. Their leader comes from behind them.
Grommash Hellscream: Are you so eager to meet death? Look then upon the countless faces of your demise.
Grommash Hellscream: Rise up, Iron Horde! Bring your warchief their heads.
