Notes

  • This quest was slightly bugged at release, with the parachutes sometimes not spawning on the sides of the ship.

Upon accepting the quest, Sky Admiral Rogers gives a speech to a group of nine Alliance Paratroopers standing in formation before her on deck.

Sky Admiral Rogers says: Men, you've trained for this. You're among the elite. You are Skyfire men!
Sky Admiral Rogers says: This is the ship that took down Deathwing. You think some raggedy little Horde outpost stands a chance against the pride of the Alliance fleet? NO!
Sky Admiral Rogers says: Those green dirtbags down there plagued your homes in Southshore, laid siege to your children in Redridge, and massacred every man, woman and child in Theramore.
Sky Admiral Rogers says: It. Is. PAYBACK TIME!
The paratroopers cheer.

Run to the side of the ship and interact with a parachute. The adventurer will put it on and jump off, circling over Garrosh'ar Point before landing to the north next to Sully. He's tinkering with a busted Garrosh'ar Shredder.

  • Sully "The Pickle" McLeary mumbles to himself while tinkering with the shredder.
  • Sully "The Pickle" McLeary says: Gah, this thing's a death trap!
  • Sully "The Pickle" McLeary says: Is that... a cherrywood drive-shaft? Who does that?!
  • Sully "The Pickle" McLeary says: I'm pretty sure this "valve" is a toenail. Goblins...
  • Sully "The Pickle" McLeary says: Yeesh! Me great nan could build a more reliable manifold than this. An' she has!
  • Sully "The Pickle" McLeary says: Look at this - total amateur hour! Doesn't even have a second-stage turbine blade.
  • Sully "The Pickle" McLeary says: Level two grappling done. Now to tighten up level three...
  • Sully "The Pickle" McLeary says: Wait and see, lads. We'll have ourselves a fine killin' machine in no time.
