|Title||<The Argent Dawn>|
- The time has come for Horde and Alliance to look towards Northrend and the invasion of the Lich King. In recent days, territories across Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms have come under attack. Will you take up arms to save your land from destruction at their hands?

The tides of war have come again. From the cold north, the Lich King's necropolises have laid siege to our lands. He sends flying necropolises to invade across the world.
What can I do?
- The Scourge are establishing small staging points in the places under attack, receiving communications and other assistance from the necropolises that fly overhead. From what we can tell, the only way to root them out is by killing the ground forces that surround the points.
Where are we battling the Scourge?
- The Lich King brought only small forces to bear against each of Azeroth's capital cities, while their main forces periodically attack the following lands:
Azshara, the Blasted Lands, the Burning Steppes, the Tanaris Desert, the Eastern Plaguelands and Winterspring.
