Dialogue

You: Why are the Darkspear in rebellion against Garrosh?

(Vol’jin twists his face into a scowl.)

Vol’jin: Ya wouldn’t understand. What’s de Horde ta ya, (race)? Hm? Diseased? Alien? Betrayers? Demon-blooded? Beasts? I know what ya say ’bout us.

I’ll tell ya what the Horde is. De Horde dat me an’ Thrall built. It be a family. When de whole world try ta put us down, de family come an’ pick us back up.

Hellscream, he don’t see family. Ain’t never had one.

You: What about Hellscream? What does the Horde mean to him?

Vol’jin: For him, Horde be about orcs, an’ buildin’ up orc power. Like he just come through de portal. Anyone stand in his way, anyone tink any diff’rent, he shut ‘em up.

(Vol’jin runs his three-fingered hand across his scar.)

He like an angry dog. Oh, I fight next to Hellscream in battle, sure. But put him in charge? Ya askin’ for trouble. He pick his favorites, start his war, shove me bruddahs aside… He don’t tink he need nobody else. Well, he wrong.

He gonna learn: ya never cross family.

patch-5-3-escalation-alliance-version-voljin-of-the-darkspear-3

You: Why should we help you? What if we kept the Barrens supplies for ourselves?

(Vol’jin cackles, the stench of his hot breath reeking in your nostrils.)

Vol’jin: Oh, ya got anudda plan? I got anudda plan, too. I let ya siege Orgrimmar on ya own. See how far ya get. An’ once da city be filled wit’ corpses, den me shadow hunters come in, we mop up what left, kill Kor’kron an’ Alliance alike. Give ya dead ta Sylvanas. Hmm! I save a lot a Darkspear lives wit’ dis plan!

Mmnn? You don’t like? Then, we stay wit’ da first plan. We work together.

We don’t even have ta like each other.

You: (Call his bluff) Why don’t WE wait until YOU attack Orgrimmar, and then mop up YOUR dead?

(Vol’jin sees his opportunity slipping away. He holds up his hands.)

Vol’jin: Wait now, (race)! Orgrimmar be a fortress. My people, we ain’t gonna crack dat nut on our own. How long we gonna last out here? Days? Weeks? Vol’jin can’t say.

You keep da supplies comin’, an’ I promise, more Kor’kron gonna die. Before ya troops even land! The blood bein’ split ain’t even ya own! Surely dat be worth a few crates of meat?

Battlefield: Barrens

Vol’jin: Ya want we work together on dis, ya gotta earn me trust.

In Northern Barrens, de Kor’kron be massin’ for war. Hellscream’s goons be stockpilin’ lumber, oil, stone, an’ meat. Supplies de Darkspear want ta use against’ ‘im.

Go to de Barrens. Kill de Kor’kron. Bring me dem supplies! Fight dem wherever dey spring up, escort supply caravans, group up ta take down de dangerous ones. Whatever ya gotta do.

Completion

Vol’jin: I need dem Kor’kron supplies ta fuel de Darkspear Rebellion.

(Vol’jin motions to his guards to allow you to come forward and speak.)

Vol’jin: De Barrens be splattered wit’ blood, (race). Ya done right by me.

Tell de Alliance ta rally its fleet. When de time comes, de Darkspear an’ de other rebels will try ta hold de harbor for ya. Hellscream made too many enemies ta fight ‘em all off at once, hah!

(The troll’s face becomes deadly serious.)

Vol’jin: Ya have me thanks, (race). Dis rebellion only gonna get so far wit’ out ya.

Zen’tabra: I take ya to Vol’jin.

Quest Objectives

Accompany Zen’tabra to Vol’jin.

Dialogue

Zen’tabra: Walk wit’ me, (race).

Keep ya hands where we can see ‘em. Everybody be jumpy. We be in a war here, a war against de Warchief hisself.

Hellscream already try ta have Vol’jin killed. Heh. Ain’t so easy ta kill a troll.

What he did? He woke de fury a’ de Darkspear tribe.

Hellscream thought Vol’jin dead, ’til Vol’jin show up at Sen’jin Village. Den de Warchief try to crush de rebellion, but we was waitin’ for ‘im. We fought back de Kor’kron at Sen’jin, and den we took Razor Hill, hah, right under de Warchief’s nose!

patch-5-3-escalation-alliance-version-voljin-of-the-darkspear-2

We turn eyes now ta de final prize – Orgrimmar.

De Alliance want a second front on Orgrimmar? We can do dat. You can help. We be needin’ resources: Stone, Wood, Oil, Meat. Only den can we move on da city.

Dis ain’t a task for da weak-hearted, stranger. But if ya help us, maybe Vol’jin begin ta trust ya. Either way ya weaken de Warchief’s grasp on his own lands. Tink a soft-skinned Alliance can do it? Ahahahahaaa!

(The stench around Vol’jin’s makeshift revolutionary camp is intolerable. The troll leader allows you to speak first, while his guards eye you warily.)

patch-5-3-escalation-alliance-version-voljin-of-the-darkspear-3

Completion

(The troll does not have a strong grasp of the common tongue, and his throat is still bandaged from a knife wound. But the meaning of his words is clear.)

What de Alliance want wit’ ol’ Vol’jin, hmm? Zen’tabra says we got a common enemy. That don’t make us friends.

But… Maybe we can work together dis once. You want to strangle de Warchief, hm? Shut ‘im out?

(Vol’jin smiles disarmingly, his grin slow and savage.)

The Darkspear Rebellion (Alliance) – Patch 5.3 Escalation

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Uncategorized


The Darkspear Rebellion

Amber Kearnen: The trolls are in open rebellion. This could work to our advantage! If they open up a second front. Garrosh cannot possibly defend the city from us both.

I have a very risky assignment for you. I need you to be the Alliance representative and open up talks with Vol’jin of the Darkspear tribe.

Try finding the troll prisoner that we freed from Kor’kron clutches. Zen’tabra, wasn’t it?

It may be our only chance to bring Garrosh to his knees…

(Zen’tabra narrows her eyes at you.)

Zen’tabra: Why de Alliance seek de Darkspear? We fightin’ de “Warchief,” sure, but dat don’t mean we friends. I never trust de Alliance, an’ I ain’t ’bout ta start now.

Still, dat funny mechanical cat ya have saved me life… so I give you dis. I let ya speak wit’ Vol’jin.

Let him decide if ya words be venom or honey.

Don’t be tryin’ nothin’, (class). Ya lift a finger against Vol’jin, ya life be forfeit.

Gathering Intelligence

Amber Kearnen: Garrosh continues building up his forces in Orgrimmar – this place is like a fortress!

King Wrynn won’t want to risk an assault until we have as much information as possible.

Use Project C4T to navigate through the Blockade. Try to gather as much information as you can. Look for any high priority documents and any weakness we can take advantage of. Keep your ears open and your head down!

Completion

Amber Kearnen: Did you find us anything useful?

  • Kor’kron Supply Lines: The book details the movements of an alarming number of resources being taken through the Barrens

  • Operation: Darkspear Destruction: A detailed plan to brutally attack and decimate the Darkspear in Sen’jin Village

  • Kor’kron Command Posts: A map detailing the locations of various Kor’kron commander’s positions in the Barrens.

Amber Kearnen: Let’s see… the warchief is moving tons of supplies through the Barrens… And what’s this about the Darkspear? The trolls are in open rebellion?! Garrosh certainly has his hands full.

I think I know how we can use this intel. It’s a crazy idea, but it just might work…

Dialogue

Amber Kearnen: You did good, (name). Looks like trouble is brewing within the Horde. Garrosh has a full-scale troll rebellion on his hands.

Sully “The Pickle” McLeary: So the rumors are true? Vol’jin is alive and out for Garrosh’s blood?

patch-5-3-escalation-alliance-version-gathering-intelligence-5

Amber Kearnen: Yes. This is just the opportunity the Alliance needs. We’ll use the trolls as a diversion while the main Alliance fleet assembles. You get what I’m saying, Sully?

Sully: Wait a minute! Are you suggestin’ that we help Vol’jin?

Amber Kearnen: Vol’jin is backed into a corner. With our aid, he’ll be the spear that breaks open Hellscream’s fortress. Let our enemies weeaken one another, while we wait in the wings for our chance to strike.

Sully: That’s my girl, fanning the flames! I like it. Now, which one o’ us is brave enough ta pay a little visit to tha Darkspear? Not it!

A Little Field Work (Alliance) – Patch 5.3 Escalation

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Uncategorized


A Little Field Work

Lorewalker Cho: My dream brew can only tell me so much. Its visions are scattered in time and space. But it is clear that a showdown is brewing at the Horde capital of Orgrimmar.

You should go there, and see these events for yourself!

In my dream brew I see two brave Alliance spies alone in Durotar. I see “Amber” and “Sully”…

Perhaps you remember them? I think they need your help!

Perhaps you remember them? I think they need your help!

You’ll find Amber and Sully in Kalimdor, near Skull Rock, at a place called the Dranosh’ar Blockade.

patch-5-3-escalation-alliance-version-war-is-coming

Quest Objectives

Secure passage to Kalimdor from Gleep Chatterswitch at the Shrine of Seven Stars. Then speak with Amber Kearnen, who is scouting Bladefist Bay near Skull Rock in Durotar.

Dialogue

Lorewalker Cho: So! Even as the Alliance binds itself ever closer together, the Horde is ripping itself apart.

My friend, something is about to give. I wish I could experience the next chapter of the story, but alas, I am just the storyteller.

You, brave hero – you are strong enought to leap into the center of events as they transpire.

Go now! Go to Durotar! Make your mark as history unfurls around you!

Progression

Gleep Chatterswitch: You need ta go somewhere? As long as that somewhere is Ratchet, I’ve got yer fast track right here!

You: I’d like to travel to Ratchet.

Gleep Chatterswitch: Step onto that teleporter. Ratchet, comin’ right up!

patch-5-3-escalation-alliance-version-little-field-work-1

Dialogue

You: Why are you and Sully out here?

Amber Kearnen (SI:7): The High King has no intention of letting Garrosh continue his mad campagin. It is costing too many innocent lives.

We are here to look for vulnerabilities in Orgrimmar’s defenses. The sort of vulnerabilities that an Alliance army could take advantage of.

Unfortunately, it looks like Garrosh has not been idle. He has stepped up recruitment of Kor’kron and turned them into a full-fledged war machine.

You: What are the Kor’kron?

Amber Kearnen (SI:7): They used to be an elite band of orcs created to serve the Warchief as protectors and enforcers of his command.

Now they are an army of incredibly well trained destroyers. Garrosh’s personal legion.

patch-5-3-escalation-alliance-version-little-field-work-2

Completion

Amber Kearnen (SI:7): (Name)! I cannot tell you how relieved I am to have some backup!

King Wrynn himself sent us to gather intel on Garrosh’s activities and Orgrimmar’s defenses, but… things are looking grim.

We need your help.

Battlefield: Barrens (Weekly) – Patch 5.3 Escalation – World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Uncategorized

Ki’ta Arrowtusk: Our work be far from finished, (Name). De flames of change burn, but dey can still be snuffed out.

Bring me more Kor’kron war supplies, and I’ll reward ya well.

patch-5-3-escalation-horde-version-battlefield-barrens-weekly-1

Quest Objectives

(Weekly Quest) Collect 150 Kor’kron Lumber, 150 Kor’kron Oil, 150 Kor’kron Meat, and 150 Kor’kron Stone.

Rewards: Radical Mojo + 200 Valor Points

Completion

ki’ta Arrowtusk: How go the Barrens, (class)?

(Ki’ta Arrowtusk chuckles to himself.)

ki’ta Arrowtusk: I see you made a whole lotta Kor’kron heads roll for dese supplies.

Well mon. Vol’jin was right to commend you. Dese supplies will be lastin’ us an entire week.

battlefield-barrens-weekly-achievement-progress

Description

The weekly version of this quest is challenging, and fun. Go grab some supplies: wood, oil, meat or stone like you did in the normal version. Watch the map after you kill any mob. Check often. Sometimes you will see a red-orc-head icon on the map. This displays the location of a newly respawned Elite mob. They have an irregular respawn timer.

patch-5-3-escalation-horde-version-battlefield-barrens-weekly-2

Additionally, you will see messages onscreen or loud sound effects that alert you to look at your map. These sounds alert you there is a caravan transporting one of the resources. You can kill the mounted Kor’kron attacking the mobile caravan. They drop some resource loot. Continue to follow the caravan until it reaches its destination. A message appears onscreen to inform you have succeeded to escort the caravan. A Surplus Supplies crate will appear in your inventory. Inside are a small random amount of resources.

At another times, you might see an icon near one of the water pools, or on the edge of cliffs in the Northern Barren. These overturned wagons have boxes of resources: oil, wood, stone and meat.

Collecting 150 of each resource allows you to obtain a Radical Mojo per week. With this item you can merge one of the new leg, shoulder, boot, belt items into an iLevel 489 gear with two upgrade bonuses. These can be upgraded up to iLevel 502 with Valor points. Sort of a quick way to get high level gear without going through raids.

These are sold by Ravika (Darkspear Rebellion Quartermaster), but it seems there’s a chance to loot one of these from mobs. Combine them with a Radical Mojo to convert it into a useable gear iLevel 489.

Path of the Last Emperor – Patch 5.3 Escalation – World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Uncategorized


Path of the Last Emperor

Seer Hao Pham Roo: In his time of uncertainty, the last emperor walked a lonely path up this mountain, until he had at last found his answers.

I am here to walk the same path, and it seems you have questions of your own to be answered. Perhaps you will join me, and we can both be satisfied?

Oh, but I am getting old, and this blizzard is proving too much for my bones. Could you climb ahead and anchor this rope? I can hoist myself along from there.

Together we shall walk the path of the last emperor.

patch-5-3-escalation-horde-version-path-of-the-last-emperor-2

Quest Objectives

Attach the climbing rope to each Rope Anchor along the path to help Seer Hao Pham Roo reach Seeker’s Point.

(Seer Hao Pham Roo hands you the end of his climbing rope. Tie it to the next Rope Anchor and help him up the mountain!)

Seer Hao Pham Roo: Heh, do not get angry with the elements. Violence is their nature. I conquered my own anger long, ago.

Note: Kill the Summit Guster mobs as you climb the mountain. Interact (click) the rope anchors to attach the rope harness. This triggers Seer Hao to ascend the mountain toward that stick.

patch-5-3-escalation-horde-version-path-of-the-last-emperor-3

Step on the Summit Guster’s corpse to gain a movement speed buff. Run down the hill, and stand next to Seer Hao. He will also get the movement speed buff.

(Zephyr increases your movement speed – share this effect with Seer Hao Pham Roo by walking beside him.)

patch-5-3-escalation-horde-version-path-of-the-last-emperor-4

(First Anchor: 1/1)

Seer Hao Pham Roo: My, you are strong! When I was young, I might have doubted that we could do this. But now, I have no doubts at all.

(Second Anchor: 1/1)

Seer Hao Pham Roo: Such wind! Such cold! Once, it would have filled these old bones with despair. But on this day, I am filled with hope.

(Third Anchor: 1/1)

Seer Hao Pham Roo: Such a patient one! When I was young, I would have hated this task. Nowadays, I am filled with love.

(Fourth Anchor: 1/1)

Seer Hao Pham Roo: Do not fear the heights, as I did when I was young. Fear can drive us to terrible deeds. Ah, but I see that like me, you have learned the lessons of courage!

(Fifth Anchor: 1/1)

Seer Hao Pham Roo: Ah, here we are. Oh – oh, these old bones are tired. More than you can imagine.

Seer Hao Pham Roo: You surprised me. I expected a hero such as yourself to balk at the task of carrying an old man up a mountain. Most are too proud.

Completion

Seer Hao Pham Roo: We made it, (class)! Thank you so much. Please, help yourself to some of my old knick-knacks.

But… I am afraid I have not been completely honest with you…

(Achievement Progress: The Path of the Last Emperor)

Dialogue

Seer Hao Pham Roo: I was going to teach you a lesson but instead, it is you who have taught me. You see, when I was young… when I was young… when I was young…

I was EMPEROR.

Emperor Shaohao: The realm you see all around you was mine to command. I conquered my doubts, my fears, my anger… I buried all of it within the land.

But I held on to one vice. The one sha I never conquered. PRIDE.

My pride cloaked this land in mists! I thought we were better than the rest of the world.

I thought we could solve our own problems. But for ten thousand years, we stagnated, our doubts and fears buried in the land, rising up to fester whenever we allowed them.

Pride. It is the most insidious of sha. It is good until it is bad. And then it is more dangerous than all the others combined.

patch-5-3-escalation-horde-version-path-of-the-last-emperor-1

Beware of Pride! Be humble! The world is plunging into chaos. Old enemies must work together. Proud races must admit they need help.

Things are going to get worse before they get better. Only by working together can we overcome the darkness.

All that stands in our way… is pride.

 

Check out “The Seven Burdens of Emperor Shaohao” in the Lorewalkers section. It seems the origin of the mists and the disappearance of the mists are tightly linked to the disappearance and reappearance of Emperor Shaohao. Once he buried the seven burdens, the Emperor became the mists in order to save Pandaria and its people.

Once Shaohao acknowledged he had allowed the Sha of Pride to blind him, and that his people and all of Azeroth needed one another, and cast away his pride — Emperor Shaohao reappeared and the mists vanished. It’s implied.

The Old Seer – Patch 5.3 Escalation – World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Uncategorized

Chen Stormstout: Years ago, I helped put the Horde together on these very sands. My … how times have changed.

You: What are you doing here, Chen Stormstout?

Chen Stormstout: (Name)! So strange to see you here, far from the green forests of Pandaria.

When I first sailed away from the Wandering Isle, years ago, this ragged shore was one of the first places I visited. Ahh! The air still smells the same!

But times have changed. Back then I helped Thrall, Vol’jin, Rexxar and Rokhan to lay the foundation of Orgrimmar. Today, I hardly recognize the place.

(Chen’s face falls.)

So much needless bloodshed. I just don’t understand. Has Pandaria taught us nothing?

The Old Seer

Chen Stormstout: Hellscream is using Pandaria’s secrets to wage war against the world – and even his own people.

Is this really what the last pandaren emperor had in mind when he cloaked the continent in mists? And why did the mists suddenly disappear? I must have answers!

In my travels, I met an old scholar, an expert on the last emperor.

Please, seek out Seer Hao Pham Roo. Last we spoke, he was planning to retrace the emperor’s steps by scaling Mount Neverest… but he was far too old to attempt such a climb.

patch-5-3-escalation-horde-version-battle-of-razor-hill-3

Vol’jin: You set one foot in Orgrimmar, Hellscream gonna bury a knife in ya neck!

Thrall: It is a risk I have to take. But if I am killed, please watch over Aggra and my boy.

Kor’kron Deadeye: Darkspear animals will be put down like the filth they are!

Gar’Thok: The Warchief should’ve never crossed the Darkspear. He tore the Horde apart.

Tarshaw Jaggedscar: I have trained hundreds of young warriors. The Warchief sheds their blood recklessly. He is no longer MY Warchief. Now I see why the Darkspear are fighting back!

Vol’jin: Lor’themar be ready to strike once he finish wit da Isle of Thunder, and da Banshee Queen need no excuse, but they both across da sea. Without ya strength, we can’t breech the city. I need tauren arms.

Vol’jin: Hmm?

If you run into trouble with more mobs than you can chew, run toward the west. The Darkspear guards will aggro and kill the bunch of mobs for you.

Ki’ta Arrowtusk: Walk wit’ me, (class). Vol’jin be seein’ ya in just a moment. De “Warchief” still believes Vol’jin be dead, slain by his Kor’kron assassin in Kun-Lai Summit.

Vol’jin survived, but he still remember da sting a’ Hellscream’s betrayal. Darkspear never die.

When Vol’jin come back ta us, I saw he was changed. Da light a’ revolution be burnin’ in his eyes!

Now, look around you. De Darkspear rebellion begins. Hellscream’s worst nightmare.

Thrall: Not quite, old friend. Times have changed. The line between friend and foe is not so clear.

patch-5-3-escalation-horde-version-voljin-of-the-darkspear-3

You: What happened to you in Pandaria?

(Vol’jin runs his three-fingered hand over his scar.)

Vol’jin: It been a long road, friend. Garrosh tried ta take me life wit’ a knife in de throat. Left me for dead. I crawl out dat cave, couldn’t even speak. It was Chen Stormstout who found me, nursed me back from de brink.

We travelled to de Shado-Pan monastery, an’ dey help me do some soul-searching. Figure out who I was. Who the Horde was. Me father …

I made up me mind. I’m takin’ de Horde back. No matter de cost.

Darkspear never die.

You: Does Garrosh know you’re alive?

(Vol’jin allows a grim smile to creep across his scowling features.)

Vol’jin: Ya still call him “Warchief,” (class)? Is he still YOUR Warchief? What of de spoils of his war? I don’t see you fat an’ happy like his Kor’kron. His Horde be an orc Horde. Do ya still feel welcome here, (race)? Are ya a part of his plan? Or are ya trash he gonna do away wit’ once he has his way? He promise glory, but bathes our Horde in blood, an’ steps on anyone who see it diff’rent.

Ya wanna know how I see de Horde? De Horde dat me an’ Thrall built?

You: How do you see the Horde?

Vol’jin: Horde be a family. When de whole world try ta put us down, de family come an’ pick us back up. We all each other got, see?

Hellscream, he don’t see family. Ain’t never had one. All he see is power, like he just come through the portal.

(Vol’jin stares off into the distance.)

We stand against him – together, here, now – or he stome us out. One. By. One. I got de scars ta prove it.

Who do ya trust, (name)? Where be your loyalty now? Hellscream? Or family?

Patch 5.3 Escalation – Storyline Transcript and Videos – World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Uncategorized

The World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.3 adds new content to the progressive Garrosh Hellscream storyline. The Landfall (Patch 5.1) confrontation between the Alliance and the Horde at the Krasarang Wilds’ shore is over, and the Thunder King has been defeated.

What’s next? Well, Patch 5.3: Escalation is the intermediate content prior to engaging Garrosh Hellscream as the final boss of Mists of Pandaria.

The Horde and the Alliance are preparing their path toward Orgrimmar through the Barrens and Durotar.

Note: Over the next weeks, I’ll be updating this page with the quests text, NPC dialogues, images and videos. This will serve as a lore repository for those who rushed through the quests without reading, or for those who unsubscribed to World of Warcraft months ago, and wish to know what’s new. Who knows — what you see in this archive might bring you back to World of Warcraft.


Patch 5.3 Intro – Horde version

When players approach Sunwalker Dezco and Taran Zhu at the Golden Terrace of the Shrine of Two Moons capital in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, we see a conversation between both characters concerning Garrosh and the actions of the Horde.

Taran Zhu: Tauren! What have your people done? You have dredged open a scar within our sacred Vale!

Sunwalker Dezco: Lord Zhu, please understand – the orc “Warchief” who ordered the deed no longer speaks for the whole of the Horde. Many voices are rising up against him.

patch-5-3-escalation-horde-intro-1

Taran Zhu: Your politics are no concern of mine. Your Horde has disrespected the sanctity of this place. You are no longer welcome here – leave at once!

Sunwalker Dezco: Give us time, Lord Zhu. Give us the opportunity to bring Hellscream to justice.

Taran Zhu: Sunwalker, I respect your people. You have aided us in our campaign against the Sha, and the Thunder King. Otherwise, I would’ve already ordered the Shado-Pan to purge this entire shrine. But my patience is at an end. The Horde must leave.

Sunwalker Dezco: Please. Give us time to make this right.

Taran Zhu: Very well. You have until season’s end. No longer. We pandaren are no strangers to dealing with tyrants. The coming battle will try your souls. May the celestials guide your actions.

The King and the Council – Scenario: Blood in the Snow – Patch 5.3 Escalation

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Uncategorized


The King and the Council

Lorewalker Cho: I am glad you are here, (name). I have been using my dream brew to experience events around the world, but the more I learn, the more confused I become.

For instance, King Wrynn has asked the dwarves of Ironforge for more troops, but they do not all support him.

I will tell you more, but I would also like to hear from your experience firsthand…

Quest Objectives

Complete the “Blood in the Snow” scenario. You can queue from the dungeon finder or use Lorewalker Cho’s Dream Brew.

Progression

Note: A hologram / vision plays out behind Lorewalker Cho.

Lorewalker Cho: Once upon a time – moments ago, in fact – a great king sought the help from a trio of powerful dwarves: The Council of Three Hammers.

The King’s scouts had discovered that Zandalari trolls threatened the dwarven capital.

Surely, the king thought, if he helped them with their troll problem, they would give him more troops for his campaign against the Horde.

patch-5-3-escalation-horde-version-the-king-and-the-council-1

But what the king did not realize is that the dwarves did not trust one another!

“We cannot help you,” said the Bronzebeard dwarf. “For if we turn our back on the Dark Irons, they will defeat the Wildhammer and take over Ironforge!”

“We cannot help you,” said the Wildhammer dwarf. “For if we turn our back on the Dark Irons, they will defeat the Bronzebeard and take over Ironforge!”

patch-5-3-escalation-horde-version-the-king-and-the-council-2

The king was furious. “If none of you help, then Ironforge will fall under siege!”

Only one dwarf offered to help the king. “We will lend you our strength,” said Moira, of the Dark Iron. “We will trust our dwarven brothers, and we will show them what loyalty means!”

And so Moira and the High King set out into the snow to save the city, leaving the others to think about their actions.

What happens next? I must know!

Scenario: Blood in the Snow

patch-5-3-escalation-alliance-version-scenario-blood-in-the-snow-stage-1

King Varian Wrynn: This is where my agents tracked the Zandalari.

Moira Thaurissan: Shimmer Ridge. I know it well. The Frostmane trolls breed and plot atop that snow-blown mesa.

King Varian Wrynn: I can only imagine what foul business the Zandalari have with them …

patch-5-3-escalation-alliance-version-scenario-blood-in-the-snow-1

Moira Thaurissan: We’ve lost many mountaineers to this freakish storm, or the trolls slithering about in it.

King Varian Wrynn: Yes. This weather is not natural.

patch-5-3-escalation-alliance-version-scenario-blood-in-the-snow-stage-2

Moira Thaurissan: Aye. I am loath to send my men into that. It reeks of ambush and bloody disaster.

King Varian Wrynn: My champions will go. They will see what can be done, and rescue who they can.

Moira Thaurissan: If they can stop that storm, I’ll lead the Forgeguard to the top myself.

King Varian Wrynn: It’s heartening to see you here, Moira. You have my thanks.

Moira Thaurissan: Indeed. With the aid of your champions, the Dark Irons will put an end to the Zandalari threat in Dun Morogh.

We will prove our loyalty – to the Council, Ironforge, and the Alliance – here, today, and with our own blood.

King Varian Wrynn: Hrmmm. Fare well, Queen Regent.

Moira Thaurissan: I’ll see you when it’s done, King of Stormwind.

I saw ‘em draggin’ Boldbrew, kickin’ and bitin’ towards some hut south o’ here. Now if ye hurry, ye can help her, and she might know more.

Scout Boldbrew: Oh, that was a CLOSE one, thank ye! There’s only a few of us left; the ones they don’t eat, they butcher at some big altar. It’s just northwest o’ here; if ye hurry, ye might be able ta save some! Sorry I don’t know anythin’ more …

There’s a cave, north o’ here, across a bridge. If ye can slay the elemental within, the storm ought ta stop.

Moira Thaurissan: The king’s champions have done it: The storm has ended! Forward, Dark Irons! TO BATTLE WE MARCH!

Hekima the Wise: You may have stopped the storm, but you cannot stop the will of the Zandalar! You will DIE, here … ALL OF YOU! Trolls of the world will unite against you! We control the sand, the seas, the winds … We will bury you in your mountain! There … will be more! Zandalar … will never fall …

[Scenario Complete: Blood in the Snow]

King Varian Wrynn: Well fought. I see the Dark Irons are as formidable as ever.

Moira Thaurissan: That they are, King Varian. And at the service of the Alliance, I might add.

King Varian Wrynn: Hah! For that, I’m glad. The Bronzebeards and Wildhammers will regret not having been here to share in your glory.

Moira Thaurissan: Better they’re grateful for the clansmen spared death on this miserable hillock. We sought to protect and impress, not to shame.

patch-5-3-escalation-alliance-version-scenario-blood-in-the-snow-7

King Varian Wrynn: Well, you’ve done just that. Come; let us return to Ironforge, and announce your victory to the Council.

Moira Thaurissan: My thanks for your assistance, champions. I will tend to the slain and wounded here before returning to Ironforge.

patch-5-3-escalation-alliance-version-scenario-blood-in-the-snow-8

 


The King and the Council

Lorewalker Cho: So, King Wrynn and the Dark Iron dwarves saved the city, and the bitterly divided Council of Three Hammers gained a new unity under the Alliance banner. How interesting!

But what is happening within the Horde?
