Enter the Violet Hold through Khadgar's portal, and defeat Hakkar the Houndmaster.
We have everything we need to set the trap for Hakkar.
Archmage Khadgar will summon a portal to the Violet Hold. Once inside, he will begin to channel his essence into the arcane vessel at your command.
Our allies will be armed with the weapons you brought them, ready to fight when Hakkar takes the bait.
You shall be granted the title: Huntmaster <name>
We must defeat Hakkar!
You have no idea how relieved I am to see you!
- 24,680 XP

Stage 4: Defeat Kreenam and Czaadym
Defeat Hakkar's felhounds, Kreenam and Czaadym.
Hakkar's favored felhounds will immediately aggro to you once they enter the area. Despite their non-elite status, together they inflict heavy damage and so it's recommended that you use a Tenacity pet. Use immediately when it becomes available for use and interrupt their spell when possible.
- Shandris Feathermoon yells: Demons are near! Sentinels, ready your blades!
- Vereesa Windrunner yells: Archers, mark your targets!
- Shandris runs down to engage the felhounds with her fellow Sentinels, while Halduron and Vereesa fight at range alongside their respective groups.
- Hakkar appears from the main fel portal at the back of the Violet Hold as his felhounds engage you.
- Hakkar the Houndmaster yells: So we meet again.
- Hakkar the Houndmaster yells: Your presence was not accounted for, but I believe my hounds will enjoy making a meal of you nonetheless.
- Hakkar the Houndmaster yells: When they are done tearing you apart limb from limb, they will begin their feast on the magical prisoners within these cells.
- Hakkar the Houndmaster yells: Once sated, my hounds will charge the city, slaughtering everyone in their path.
- Hakkar the Houndmaster yells: Dalaran will fall to the Burning Legion!
- The hunter adventurer slays Kreenam and Czaadym.

Final Stage: Speak to Archmage Khadgar
Let Archmage Khadgar know that Dalaran will be safe, thanks to your heroic actions.
- Speak to Archmage Khadgar
- Halduron Brightwing says: The portals are closing! Rangers, lets finish off the last of these felhounds.
Once Halduron is finished with speaking the above, you can complete before leaving the scenario. If you choose not to, you can still talk to him outside the main building at Trueshot Lodge.
- Archmage Khadgar says: You have done what the Kirin Tor could not do for ourselves. The Houndmaster's death will deliver a crushing blow to the Burning Legion's forces.

- Archmage Khadgar creates a portal to Highmountain.

- Emmarel Shadewarden says: In times like these, our oath is more important than ever.
