- Alliance war effort still ongoing
Greetings, <race> <class>. I am Commander Stronghammer, the ambassador representing the Alliance here. If you have and questions concerning the status of Alliance collections for the Ahn'Qiraj war effort, <lad/lass>, don't hesitate to ask.
What is the Ahn'Qiraj war effort?
- We are united in cause, <race>. An ancient evil threatens to extinguish all life on Kalimdor and consume the world with its depravity... Its hatred of all things born of the great Shapers: The eternal Titans.
- We are the first and last line of defense against the armies of C'Thun. If we do not rise up and strike at out enemy, our enemy will surely destroy us.
- The war effort needs you!
How many metal bars have the Alliance collected so far?
- A very good question, <class>. When last I had heard, the Alliance had managed to smelt <number collected> out of 90000 copper bars, <number collected> out of 28000 iron bars and <number collected> out of 24000 thorium bars needed for the war effort.
How many herbs have the Alliance collected so far?
- Let me see, let me see. I had those numbers here somewhere. Ah yes, here they are! To date, the Alliance has collected <number collected> stranglekelp, out of 33000 needed. It also says here that we have <number collected> of 26000 purple lotuses and <number collected> out of 20000 arthas' tears needed.
How many leather skins have the Alliance collected so far?
- Funny you should ask... I just received an update on that. Thus far, the Alliance has gathered <number collected> of 180000 light leather, <number collected> out of 110000 medium leather and <number collected> our 80000 thick leather skins.
How many bandages have the Alliance collected so far?
- Bandages you say? Yes, well, if memory serves from the last time I was told, it would appear that the Alliance has created <number collected> of 800000 linen bandages, <number collected> of 600000 silk bandages and <number collected> of 400000 runecloth bandages.
How many cooked goods have the Alliance collected so far?
- That reminds me, I'm going to need to find something to eat soon. As to what the Alliance has been cooking up, I'm told that <number collected> out of 14000 rainbow fin albacore have been packed away. As well, <number collected> of 20000 roast raptor and <number collected> out of 17000 spotted yellowtail have been prepared and are currently in cold storage awaiting transport to Cenarion Hold in Silithus.
- Alliance war effort completed before Horde
While it is true that the Alliance has completed all of their war effort tasks, don't let that discourage you, <race>. Time is of the essence, but we would much rather that you help in the Horde's collections carefully and thoroughly. That seems better to me than making a mistake that could cost someone their life once this war truly begins. Wouldn't you agree, <class>?
- Both war efforts completed
That's right, um, <lad/lass>, all of the war materiel is being transported to Silithus and the last of it should get there within 5 days. After that, we'll all just have to wait and see who puts forth a hero to reconstitute the Scepter of the Shifting Sands and ring the gong on the Scarab Dais. Only when that occurs will the war begin to open the gates of Ahn'Qiraj.
- He was only available during the Ahn'Qiraj War Effort world event.
- Interestingly, If Alliance players infiltrated the city and attacked the guards near Stronghammer, He would join the Alliance on their assault on the nearby NPCs. General Zog, his counterpart, acted the same.
He may be related to Azar Stronghammer.
