Patch 5.1 Operation: Shieldwall – The Purge of Dalaran
Admiral Taylor: As you know, our night elven allies moved the Divine Bell you retrieved to Darnassus for safekeeping and study. Moments ago, they portaled some Highbourne mages over here to ask for backup. Details are hazy – some sort of stealth attack on the city?
I don’t know what to make of it, but Jaina Proudmoore is already on the scene and I suspect they need all the help they can get.
Speak to Seamus Goldenkicks over there for a quick portal to Darnassus. Find Jaina.
Speak with Jaina in Darnassus.
You may speak with Seamus Goldenkicks in Lion’s Landing to be ported to Darnassus.
You: I need a portal to Darnassus.
Jaina Proudmoore: No, no, no! The Bell!
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: The Bell is gone.
At the scene of the crime, we found traces of arcane magic … I may be able to use my skills to track the thieves.
Tracking the Thieves
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: We WILL get to the bottom of this.
(Name), you’re coming with me. We’ll search every inch of this city if we have to, but we’ll find out how they took the bell … and where.
I’m picking up traces of arcane magic here … we need to follow the trail!
Follow Jaina to help her discover who took the Divine Bell, and where they took it. You may speak with Seamus Goldenkicks in Lion’s Landing to be ported to Darnassus.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: I had Darnassus LOCKED DOWN! Every fumbling rogue that tried to sneak into the city, I CAUGHT them! I snatched every two-bit charlatan that attempted to teleport through my traps!
They couldn’t possibly have gotten through … this was an inside job. Somebody inside the city has the Bell, unless … no …
These portals connect to Dalaran. That means the Kirin Tor … MY OWN Kirin Tor … helped the Horde commit this atrocity.
I will NOT be betrayed again! Those responsible for this will be punished!
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: I’ve decided.
Certain members of the Kirin Tor have put their allegiance to the Horde above the order, and I will NOT tolerate it. This is nothing short of a betrayal.
(Jaina’s eyes flare with rage.)
Come with me, (name). We’re going to clean up Dalaran.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: For too long, I have tolled to mend fences between Alliance and Horde. Time and time again, I’ve given the Horde the benefit of the doubt – and time and time again, they stab me in the back.
I refuse to be betrayed again! If the Horde intendes to use the Kirin Tor as a weapon against the Alliance, then they have no place in Dalaran.
Come with me, (name).
Use the portal from Darnassus to Dalaran, then speak with Vereesa Windrunner on the other side.
(Take the portal from Darnassus to Dalaran: 1/1)
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: Aethas Sunreaver!
You’ve betrayed the Kirin Tor, Sunreaver. You’ve allowed Garrosh to move his forces through MY city.
Aethas Sunreaver: You have it all wrong, Jaina. I did nothing.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: You looked the other way. You and your insubordinate kind are no longer welcome here.
Aethas Sunreaver: This is OUR city too, Proudmoore.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore: Hah! I see. I will remove the Sunreavers by force, then.
You, Aethas, will be coming with me.
Vereesa Windrunner: I will instruct you from here on out.
Jaina will be going down into the city to enforce our new rules.
I have long waited for an opportunity to deal with the Sunreavers. I asked my late husband to remove them from the city, but he believed too firmly in the neutrality of the Kirin Tor.
He was wise, but he was short-sighted. This has always been the destiny of the Kirin Tor: to serve the Alliance.
Nowhere to Run
Vereesa Windrunner: Compliant Sunreavers will be sent to the Violet Hold. Defiant ones are put to the sword.
NONE are to escape.
The Sunreavers keep their dragonhawk mounts on Krasus’ Landing. Take this dust, and use it to render them incapable of flying.
Or kill them. I don’t care.
Render 5 Sunreaver Dragonhawks incapable of flying.
vereesa Windrunner: Now, the Sunreavers have to answer to us. Jain or death – their fate is in their own hands.
Nowhere to Hide
Vereesa Windrunner: The Sunreaver’s Sanctuary is still crawling with those Horde-loving Sunreavers.
Jaina will have sent the reasonable ones to the Violet Hode. The rest refuse to leave, raising their weapons against us.
Show them the cost of their defiance. They now face the judgment of the Alliance, the Silver Covenant, and the Kirin Tor!
Slay 16 Sunreavers in the Sunreaver’s Sanctuary.
Vereesa Windrunner: This is a bloody day, (name), and this is bloody work.
But do not forget what the Sunreavers did to bring this on: They used neutral Kirin Tor resources to aid the Horde in their fight against the Alliance.
Do no hesitate to believe that they would do the same to us, given the chance.
Vereesa Windrunner: Jaina’s doing a good job taking care of Sunreavers above ground, but there’s still plenty rooting around in the sewers.
Go find those lying rats and exterminate them!
Slay 12 Sunreavers in the Dalaran Sewers.
Vereesa Windrunner: It’s nice to have those rats out of here for good. Well done, hero.
Vereesa Windrunner: Most shopkeepers in the Magus Commerce Exchange have sided with the Silver Covenant, but there remain a few holdouts that must be taken care of.
(Vereesa shows you a list of names.)
They will not go easily.
Slay Inkmaster Aelon, Tolyria, Gearmage Astalon, and Sintharia Cinderweave.
Sintharia Cinderweave: So it’s come to this, eh?
(Sintharia Cinderweave slain: 1/1)
Gearmage Astalon: You’ll have to wrench me out of here!
(Gearmage Astalon slain: 1/1)
Tolyria: For the Sunreavers!
(Tolyria slain: 1/1)
Inkmaster Aelon: I’ll scribble you out of existence!
(Inkmaster Aelon slain: 1/1)
Vereesa Windrunner: While I can’t say I agree completely with Jaina’s methods, I do understand her motives.
Sometimes, you have to fight back.
Vereesa Windrunner: I just saw one of the Sunreavers – Brasael, I think his name was – running off in the direction of the bank to the north. No doubt he’s trying to gather whatever assets he can before he leaves.
Head him off and make sure he doesn’t steal any resources from our coffers. He relinquished whatever funds he left in the bank when he and his Sunreaver kind betrayed us.
Slay Magister Brasael.
Magister Brasael: Blast … the Silver Covenant’s here.
Vereesa Windrunner: I suppose it wasn’t enough for him to be a coward and a backstabber … he had to be a greedy thief as well.
Hmph. The Horde and the Sunreavers aren’t all that different. They deserve one another.
What Had To Be Done
Vereesa Windrunner: Thank you for your aid today, (name). I will be handling the purge from here on out.
Jaina has gone off to Stormwind, to meet with Varian. She asked for your attendance.
Speak with King Varian Wrynn in Lion’s Landing.
You: I’m ready to return to Pandaria.
King Varian Wrynn: I can’t fault you for following orders. In fact, I can’t really fault Jaina for acting on her own behalf, for once.
But still … we aren’t playing a game here. We are dealing with war, with people’s lives, with the future of the Alliance itself.
At the very least, we now have the Kirin Tor on our side. Today will be remembered by all as a victory for the Alliance.
(Operation: Shieldwall Achievement Progress – The Purge of Dalaran)
King Varian Wrynn: Jaina! What’s happening in Dalaran? Has there been an attack?
Jaina Proudmoore: The Kirin Tor was betrayed from within. I’ve handled the situation.
King Varian Wrynn: How?
Jaina Proudmoore: I’ve purged the Horde from Dalaran. You have what you wanted, Your Majesty: The Kirin Tor belongs to the Alliance.
King Varian Wrynn: But you said-
Jaina Proudmoore: I know what I said. My trust was misplaced.
King Varian Wrynn: What of the Sin’dorei – the Sunreavers?
Jaina Proudmoore: Those that surrendered are being taken to the Violet Hold. I make no guarantees about those who chose to fight.
King Varian Wrynn: Jaina, you need to talk to me before you act-
Jaina Proudmoore: How I run the Kirin Tor is my business.
King Varian Wrynn: I was trying to negotiate with the Sin’dorei. I was opening discussions to bring them into the Alliance! By attacking their people, you’ve forced their hand-
Jaina Proudmoore: They chose their own path.
King Varian Wrynn: You’ve driven them back to the Horde.
Jaina Proudmoore: You’re fooling yourself. Onece Horde, always Horde. I see that now. I’m mobilizing the Kirin Tor.
King Varian Wrynn: Jaina. We’ve got to work together on this. The Alliance must act as one.
Jaina Proudmoore: Don’t get soft on me, Varian.
