The Old Knight
110 - 120 (Requires 110)
Meet with Cyrus Crestfall.
- Enter the Harbormaster's Office
- Speak with Cyrus Crestfall
- Hear Cyrus' tale
These days Cyrus is the Harbormaster, but he used to be one of Daelin Proudmoore's most trusted knights!
I lost my mother when the Scourge hit Lordaeron. My father sent me here to be raised away from the war. I don't know much about him... just that he was a Stormwind knight who gave his life fighting the Lich King.
Daelin hand-picked Cyrus to raise me and forced him to take a desk job. It's the only reason he wasn't at Theramore.
He's probably checking in that other Alliance ship. Let's go!
You will receive:
Sorry, I should have mentioned he can be a bit... long-winded at times.
I've never seen Cyrus fired up like this!
Sounds like we have work to do.
- Taelia says: You'll feel at home here in no time. Now let's check in with Cyrus!
Jump down a level, and take a right to enter the Harbormaster's Office.
- Taelia says: Come on! The harbormaster's office is just through here.
- Taelia says: Wait... What's going on?
- Just on the other side of Cyrus's office, Harbor Guards are preventing passengers of the Alliance ship, including Genn Greymane, from disembarking. Cyrus is less than pleased.
- Cyrus Crestfall says: Stand down! Don't you know who that is?
- Harbor Guard says: But sir... Lady Ashvane ordered--
- Cyrus Crestfall says: Lady Ashvane? Do you serve Lady Ashvane? Is that Lady Ashvane's crest upon your shield?
- Harbor Guard says: N-no, sir.
- Cyrus Crestfall says: No! You serve Kul Tiras! You wear the crest of Proudmoore! And you take your orders from ME.
- Cyrus Crestfall says: Now stand down and let them pass. We shall parley in my office.
- Harbor Guard says: Aye, sir!
- The lead guard turns to the others.
- Harbor Guard says: Let them through!
- Cyrus, Greymane, and the party walk into the office.
- Cyrus Crestfall says: King Greymane, it is an honor. You are free to remain in the harbor on my authority.
- Cyrus Crestfall says: Taelia! Prepare a full briefing for our guests.
- Taelia says: Aye, sir!
Speak with Cyrus:
- You must be the Alliance emissary. I'm glad Flynn and Taelia were able to get you out of that damn prison.
- I am Sir Cyrus Crestfall. On behalf of the Proudmoore Admiralty, I welcome you to Kul Tiras.
- <Cyrus extends his massive hand warmly.>
<Shake his hand.>
- Genn Greymane says: Katherine Proudmoore turned us away and had her own daughter cast out as a traitor.
- Genn Greymane says: Why would you help us?
- Cyrus Crestfall says: Hmph... Humor an old knight for a moment, would you?
- Cyrus Crestfall says: I was in a battle many years ago. It was... the Second War? Tough to keep them all straight.
- Cyrus turns and walks to the fireplace behind him.
- Cyrus Crestfall says: An orcish juggernaut struck our transport. Splinters from the gunnel ripped across the deck and tore into a friend of mine.
- Cyrus Crestfall says: Should have been his ticket home, but he was a stubborn one. Refused to leave before the war was won. So he patched himself up and told the healers he was fine.
- Cyrus Crestfall says: A few days later, he woke up screaming and drenched in sweat. Infection had eaten away at his insides. My friend never saw another sunrise.
- Cyrus tuns to face Genn.
- Cyrus Crestfall says: By the time he asked for help, it was too late.
- Cyrus Crestfall says: Kul Tiras still bears the scars of the Third War. No one feels this more deeply than Katherine Proudmoore.
- Cyrus Crestfall says: But she is misguided. Her advisors have kept her blind to the infection that has spread throughout our kingdom.
- Cyrus returns to his previous position in front of Genn.
- Cyrus Crestfall says: The land I love is falling apart... so I'm asking for your help. Kul Tiras needs the Alliance just as badly as you need us.
- Genn Greymane says: I see. Than we shall prove to Katherine Proudmoore the same truth I learned at great cost...
- Genn Greymane says: In unity, there is strength.
Speak with Taelia to continue.
These days Cyrus is the Harbormaster, but he used to be one of Daelin Proudmoore's most trusted knights! Until I came along. You see, my mother was from Lordaeron and my father was a Stormwind knight. When he lost my mother to the Scourge, my father sent me here. Then he... well, all I've been told is that he gave his life to defeat the Lich King. Daelin hand-picked Cyrus to raise me. He would have never taken a desk job otherwise. Anyway, he's probably checking in your other ship. Let's go!
Pleased to meet you.
