The Stormwall Blockade is the eighth encounter in the Battle of Dazar'alor raid. It is a battle between two Tidesages and then Laminaria.

Adventure Guide

Brother Joseph and Sister Katherine are devout worshippers of the waves. These proud Kul Tirans would gladly risk their lives to ensure the safety of their compatriots. Their command over sea and storm is awesome to behold, as are the ancient and powerful rituals they practice.

Overview

Working to cover the main portion of the Alliance fleet as they fell back, a cadre of Stormsong tidepriests have established a blockade and summoned an overwhelming elemental to wash away Dazar'alor's port area. Re-establishing a foothold on the docks, overrun the alliance and return the summoned monstrosity back to the deep before they destroy a large portion of the city.
