- Speak to Wrathion
Garrosh Hellscream is propelling the Horde headfirst into battle, but King Varian Wrynn is a little more of a mystery to me. Do you have a moment? I'd like to talk to you about this leader of yours.
I love a good chat.
I am curious to see how King Wrynn rises to the occasion.
I am even more curious to see what YOU are capable of. Let's find out...
Wrathion offers this quest upon completion of - the phase-changing quest of the Pandaren Campaign that spawns Lion's Landing, Domination Point, and all of the associated areas in Krasarang Wilds. is not required to be completed.
Speak with Wrathion:
- Let's talk!
- Wrathion stands up.
- Wrathion says: Tong! Something to eat, please.
- Wrathion summons an image of Varian Wrynn and walks towards it.
- Wrathion says: The High King. Varian Wrynn - Leader of the Alliance.
- Wrathion says: Did you know, he was once a gladiator? Oh yes, I've been doing my research.
- The image of Varian changes. He assumes an unarmed combat stance and is now wearing a leather gladiator outfit instead of his usual heavy armor.
- Wrathion says: Suffering from amnesia, he fought for his life in Horde arenas.
- Wrathion walks in a circle around Varian, who makes some punches into the air.
- Wrathion says: There, he earned the name "Lo'Gosh," or "Ghost Wolf."
- Wrathion says: He IS a fighter. But... is he a leader?
- Varian changes back into his usual King of Stormwind self.
- Wrathion says: Think about it! His enemies took advantage of my father's Cataclysm.
- Fire blazes all around Varian.
- Wrathion says: Horde soldiers thundered across the realm in the wake of the devastation.
- Wrathion says: Varian Wrynn didn't use the disaster to gain a military advantage.
- Two Stormwind banners spawn at Varian's sides. Wrathion walks from Varian's right to his left.
- Wrathion says: Is this because he is weak...? Or because he is principled?
- Varian again assumes a battle stance, this time wielding a Stormwind flag.
- Wrathion says: Here's the bigger question: Can principles win a war?
- Wrathion says: Make no mistake. Pandaria will challenge your King.
- Wrathion says: Let us see what he is truly made of.
- Wrathion says: Let us see if your Alliance has what it takes to rule Azeroth.
Speak with Wrathion again to complete the quest.
