Siege of Vanguard (WC2 Human)
|Siege of Vanguard|
|Location||Vanguard, Hellfire Peninsula|
|Result||Alliance Expedition victory|
|Previous||The Heart of Evil|
|Next||Dance of the Laughing Skull|
Although the Fortress of Ner'zhul has been destroyed and the Death Knights scattered, neither the Shaman nor the Book of Medivh has been found. As Khadgar and Turalyon use their magiks to search the ruins for some clue as to the location of the mystic tome, a Gnomish flying machine descends, bringing news from the Hellfire Peninsula and the Portal.
You must take command of the Alliance armies at Hellfire and break the siege before our troops are pushed back through the Dark Portal. We must withstand their charge long enough for the Book of Medivh to be recovered and the rift forever sealed.

- The Bonechewer clan's AI is scripted to spam poorly-upgraded basic units, as indicated by the mission briefing. The Shattered Hand and Thunderlord clans have more traditional behaviors, being able to use advanced units like (respectively) death knights and dragons.
