23g 40s


H [120] Ever Eastward


H [120] Grim Tidings (Side with Varok) / H [120] For the Queen (Side with Sylvanas)


Drink the Humanizing Potion, then question Hunter McAlister at Redridge Pass in Redridge Mountains.


Look there, down the hill. One of the Alliance hunters that roam the area.

No one knows these pathways like them. If our quarry passed through here, that hunter would certainly have seen the tracks. His dogs may even have caught Saurfang's scent.

Here is another dose of the potion. Let us question this one while he is alone.


You will receive:

  • 23g 40s
  • 17,850 XP


Let's find out everything we can.


Thank you for your assistance in this investigation, champion. We have all but confirmed Saurfang's current location.

I must report back to the warchief before we make any further moves. We will summon you if we require your assistance again.


Potion drank
Marion Sutton says: Ugh! I'll never get used to the taste of this vile concoction.
Approaching McAlister
Marion Sutton says: My good sir, can you help us?
Marion Sutton says: A filthy orc raided our farm in the night. He stole a priceless family heirloom!
Marion Sutton says: Have you seen any signs of such a monstrous brute travelling over the pass?
Hunter McAlister says: Found some huge tracks just this morning. They led over the mountain pass and into the swamp.
One by one, the dogs slowly approach Marion Sutton.
Franklin says: Grrr...
Hunter McAlister says: If that was your orc, he's a big one. Best watch yourselves.
Danger says: Rrrr... rouf!
Hunter McAlister says: Must've been your orc that got my dogs all riled up last night.
Drooble says: Ar-ooof!
Hunter McAlister says: They were barking and growling up a storm. They do that whenever one of those Horde scoundrels comes around.
Wallaby says: Rrrrrr...
Franklin says: GRRRR...
Hunter McAlister says: Come to think of it, sorta like they're doing right now...
Danger says: ROUF!
Bernard says: Bark!
Hunter McAlister yells: Hey! You're with the Horde, aren't you!? Get 'em, boys!
  • McAlister throws a flare, removing the disguise, and he and his dogs immediately attack you. If McAlister is killed, and the dogs are alive, they run away.
Franklin says: Yipe yipe yipe yipe yipe!
Danger says: Yipe yipe yipe yipe yipe!
Drooble says: Yipe yipe yipe yipe yipe!
Wallaby says: Yipe yipe yipe yipe yipe!
Bernard says: Yipe yipe yipe yipe yipe!
Quest completion
Dark Ranger Lyana says: I must report back to the warchief. You are to take no further action until you hear from me again. Understood?

Lyana rides away, but Zekhan appears!

Zekhan says: Ey mon, over here! I be needin' your help!

The choice

Now you are presented with a choice of how to continue the questline. After choosing one option, you will NOT be able to do quests from the other side. You can either:

  1. accept the quest Zekhan offers, H [120] Grim Tidings, and side with Varok. End of the questline rewards  [Worn Cloak].
  2. choose the dialogue option and side with Sylvanas. End of the questline rewards  [Glowing Azerite Geode].
Speak with Zekhan to make a choice.
Da Battle for Lordaeron was me first fight. Seein' dat Alliance army outside da walls be... Well, it got me nerves up, dat's for sure.
Den I saw Saurfang. Dat orc won him a thousand battles! Dem eyes of his didn't look scared... But maybe jus' a bit empty.
Da High Overlord, he give me courage. We remind each other dat da Horde be worth fightin' for.
No way I be lettin' him stand alone. Saurfang need us, champion!
Gossip I will not betray my Warchief, troll

Choosing the dialogue option instead of the quest shows the following window:

WARNING: This choice will prevent you from completing the main Fate of Saurfang quests, and will grant you an alternative quest instead.
You will not be able to obtain the Worn Cloak toy, but other rewards will be obtainable.
Zekhan will remember this, are you sure?
