The Protectors of Hyjal
85 (Requires 85)
+350 Guardians of Hyjal
- Invader slain at Sethria's Roost x6
We need to place pressure on the assault camp at Sethria's Roost. Ragnaros' minions are using this area as a point to push their battlefront beyond the bounds of Hyjal. I'm putting you in charge of a small squad to deal with them.
I have selected an elite group of fighters to assist you. Travel to Sethria's Roost. Your compatriots have been instructed to meet you once you arrive. Then put an end to the elementals' assault.
I believe your assignment requires you to be in Hyjal, <race>.
A job well done, soldier. While our mission in the Firelands is critical, we must not forget about the well-being of Hyjal.
Speak with my brother again tomorrow, and he will have another squad prepared for you.
You will receive:
- 86750 XP (or 20 67 at max level)
- +350 reputation Guardians of Hyjal
