High Commander Halford Wyrmbane is the leader of the 7th Legion and Wintergarde Keep, a major Alliance base in the Dragonblight.


Wyrmbane served as a knight during the founding of the Knights of the Silver Hand. Believing priestly orders couldn't mix with martial skills, he continued to focus only on combat training. After observing the first paladins, however, Wyrmbane became inspired by the faith and dedication of Turalyon. When the Alliance Expedition was presumed lost following the Invasion of Draenor, Wrymbane realized that warriors could also be devout followers of the Light. Wyrmbane vowed to honor Turalyon's sacrifice by being both a soldier and a paladin.[1]

He has led the 7th Legion in crucial wars throughout recent times, timing back from the Battle of Mount Hyjal, and continues to lead the Legion to this day.

Wrath of the Lich King

Commanding the 7th Legion from Wintergarde Keep he directed the adventurers into freeing trapped villagers from Scourge-occupied town center. His men, Bolvar and the adventurers in the quest A [73] An End And A Beginning defeated Thel'zan the Duskbringer (formerly the treacherous priest Inigo Montoy) who was given the phylactery of Kel'Thuzad which — as it was not destroyed — allowed the Archlich to regain corporeal form.

He is later seen on the Isle of Conquest battling against the Horde, being opposed to Overlord Agmar and his Kor'kron.

Most recently he has been seen in the Ruins of Gilneas, regaining it for the Alliance from the Forsaken, and supporting the Gilneas Liberation Front. Wyrmbane is mentioned in a Horde quest in the Ruins of Gilneas and is seen briefly on the deck of the X-2 Pincer submarine during H [15] What Tomorrow Brings.

He was probably still commanding the Alliance forces in the region.

Halford Wyrmbane greets heroes recently returned from the Battle for Lordaeron in Stormwind Harbor. He expresses melancholy over the number of Alliance soldiers lost in the fight.

On King Anduin Wrynn's orders, the 7th Legion traveled to Kul Tiras with Genn Greymane to ensure that Jaina Proudmoore's mission of getting the Kul Tirans to rejoin the Alliance succeeded.[2] Halford can be found aboard the Wind's Redemption docked at Boralus, where on orders from Anduin he directs the Alliance's operations to secure their position on Zandalar and Kul Tiras.[3] Once footholds are secured, he co-leads the Alliance's war effort on Zandalar alongside Shandris Feathermoon.

We are 7th Legion.

  • Gossip <Stay a while and listen.>
Master Mathias Shaw walks over to Halford Wyrmbane.
Master Mathias Shaw says: Tell me, Wyrmbane, how does a paladin come to lead a force of elite soldiers? Shouldn't you be off consecrating temples or some such?
Halford Wyrmbane says: I served as a knight when the Silver Hand was founded. I was dubious that priestly orders could mix with martial skills, so I remained focused on my combat training.
Halford Wyrmbane says: But the more I observed those first paladins, one in particular inspired me... Turalyon. His faith sustained him, fueled his dedication, and made him a great leader.
Halford Wyrmbane says: When he left with the Alliance Expedition to Outland and was presumed lost, the Light opened my eyes. I realized I could be both a soldier and a paladin. I vowed to honor his sacrifice.
Master Mathias Shaw says: When you learned that Turalyon was alive, did it cause you to question your devotion? Your choices?
Halford Wyrmbane says: Quite the opposite. To witness Turalyon's return, and to learn how the Light had sustained him, transformed him, only strengthened my resolve. I know my faith was well placed.
Master Mathias Shaw says: Your faith in the Light? Or in Turalyon?
Halford Wyrmbane says: The Light will endure long after we are gone. But when this war is over, what will you be left with, Shaw?
Master Mathias Shaw says: The next war. And the one after that.
Master Mathias Shaw walks back to his post.
