The Firstborn Rises

- Nazgrim raised
General Nazgrim was one of the finest warriors our world has known, and his loyalty was unsurpassed... even for an orc.
He deserves the peace of death, but this world cries out to be saved. The time for rest is over...
Come, Deathlord... let us welcome Nazgrim into the arms of the damned.
General Nazgrim will make a fine Death Knight.
Well done, Deathlord. One of the Horde's greatest generals in life now serves you in undeath as your first horseman!

- Nazgrim says: I live again... How long has it been since I tasted death?
- Thassarian says: Long enough, my friend. The Burning Legion has returned and you have been called to the battle.

For Alliance players, it will be more time-consuming to get to Durotar than for Horde players. The shortest way is probably to teleport to Stormwind City and then take the portal to Mount Hyjal. The closest Alliance flight point is Forest Song in Ashenvale.
