We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.
Hellscream's Fist is the Horde gunship that the player first travels to Pandaria with during its maiden voyage. After arriving at Pandaria, the gunship comes under fire by Alliance naval troops and is forced to hover over land - but comes under fire from Alliance ground troops, stationed at Thunder Hold.
Some members of the crew (between them the player, and Dubs) left the airship to attack directly the stronghold but, after being confronted by them, Captain Doren of the Alliance forces escapes with a gyrocopter, managing to deal a fatal blow to the gunship in the meantime. This causes the Hellscream's Fist to crash violently to the ground, leaving half the vessel on the cliff and the other half in the sea (and almost taking down the Morningbreeze sisters' air balloon with it).
Of all the crew members that still were on the gunship, only a few managed to leave it in some way before the crash (namely Kiryn, , Gorrok, and with his pet Snuff; all the others, presumably, died in the crash.
Notes & trivia
- The gunship appears as a subzone in Durotar while on the quest and in the Jade Forest until it's destroyed.
- Early in the Mists of Pandaria beta there was originally another gunship having the same role as this one and called the Sky Shark, while Hellscream's Fist was the name of the location of Strongarm Airstrip.
- There is a catapult seen on the gunship during the beginning cinematic, but it is then nowhere to be seen after the cinematic ends. It is also not present before you head to Pandaria.
