Warcraft 3: Frozen Throne - Human Campaign - Chapter 3: The Dungeons of Dalaran

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Warcraft III: Frozen Throne

Location: Dungeons of Ruins of Dalaran

Two days later, within the magically shielded dungeons of Dalaran, Kael’thas and his blood elf brethren languish in their cells, awaiting their inevitable executions.

Prince Kael’thas: How could I have let this happen to my brethren? Locked in these cells, our thirst for magic will devour us.

Guard Marcus: It’ll all be over soon, traitor. Lord Garithos plans to execute the lot of you at dawn.

Guard Trogdar: Sunrise can’t get here fast enough. These elves give me the creeps.

Guard Marcus: Don’t worry. This prison was built by the Kirin Tor to keep their pets from getting loose. The elves’ magic is useless inside those enchanted cells.

Unknown to the Human guards mocking Kael’has, Lady Vashj and some naga are just arriving behind them. Their carelessness became their deaths.

Lady Vashj: Greetings, Kael. I assume we’re not too late.

Prince Kael’thas: On the contrary, Vashj. Your timing is impeccable. Once again I am in your debt. But even if we free my brethren, there is nowhere to run. Garithos’ forces outnumber us ten to one.

Lady Vashj: You stand at a dangerous crossroads. You can either stay here and be slaughtered by human hands … or choose a darker path … to freedom.

Prince Kael’thas: What is this darker path?

Lady Vashj: In the city above us stands a portal—a gateway that leads to other worlds.

Prince Kael’thas: Yes, I know it. The Lich, Kel’Thuzad, opened it to bring Archimonde here.

Lady Vashj: Yes. My master, Illidan, awaits us on the other side of that portal! Lead your people to him, and he will forge you a new destiny. He will sate your people’s burning hunger.

Prince Kael’thas: Side with a rogue demon … or lead my people to their certain deaths. There is no choice here, Vashj. We’ll have to free my lieutenants first. They’ll be able to rally the others while we assault the exit.

Lady Vashj: As you will.

MAIN QUEST
Blood Elf Lieutenants
Free the Blood Elf Lieutenants (0 of 4)
Kael and Vashj must survive

Garithos has imprisoned your Blood Elf Lieutenants within special magical cages. Break them free so that they can release your brethren and prepare for the upcoming battle with Garithos.

Navigating through the dungeons of Dalaran, underground, Kael’thas and Lady Vashj search every cell hoping to find the other four Blood Elf Lieutenant Warriors.

Blood Elf Lieutenant: Prince Kael! We knew you’d come!

NEW UNIT ACQUIRED
Blood Elf Lieutenant – Powerful melee unit with the Defend ability. Lieutenants are also immune to magic, and Flamestrike can be cast upon them without harming them.

Prince Kael’thas: That guard means to sound the alarm! Stom him! The alarm’s been sounded! Prepare yourselves!

An assault of Human guards attack Kael’thas and Lady Vashj. The Lieutenants help greatly in defending their leaders while they range spells at the guards.

Prince Kael’thas: I sense powerful spirits stirring nearby. Arthas murdered a number of Archmagi when the Scourge ravaged this land. Now the wizards’ invisible spirits can find no rest. Perhaps we should track them down and give them peace. I sense something … elusive. Outstanding!

OPTIONAL QUEST
Ghosts of Dalaran
Slay the Ghostly Archmagi (0 of 4 Slain)

The ghosts of the Archmagi slaughtered by Arthas during the destruction of Dalaran still haunt the decrepit ruins of the prison. Find their trapped spirits and slay them to release their tormented souls and give them peace.

HINT – Standing a unti on each rune in a set of matching runes can reveal secrets and open locked doors.

NEW ITEM RECEIVED – Ring of the Archmagi
This artifact increases in power as you collect each Gem Fragment.
A powerful artifact with a sliver of a fragmented gem inset. Increases the Strength, Agility and intelligence of the Hero by 1
.

Searching the other remaining Lieutenants, Kael’thas, Lady Vashj and some of their Lieutenants get ambushed by Undead Scourge within the corridors of the Dungeon.

Prince Kael’thas: The undead fled into these tunnels when we retook the city!

After killing the undead, further in the dungeon Kael’thas sees Human guards blocking their way.

Prince Kael’thas: Hmm. That switch on the other side of the wall will release the creatures upon the guards.

One of the guards manage to run away.

Prince Kael’thas: If he trips the alarm, they will send in elite troops to stop us. Be wary! We’ve been discovered!

Guard Seth: The blasted elves are free! We can’t take’em alone!

Guard Troy: We don’t have to. We can loose these creatures on’em!

Guard Troy pulled the handle, opening the gates and setting loose 3 powerful War golems upon Kael’thas and Lady Vashj. They barely stood a chance in destroying them. Beyond the hall, they find another of the Lieutenants.

Blood Elf Lieutenant: It’s good to see you alive, my prince. What are your orders?

The Lieutenant joined their team and kept searching their way out. Along their journey they find a Vault protected by any Human Guards and a War Golem. Inside they find relics of power and other items.

NEW ITEM ACQUIRED
Essence of Aszune
Legends speak of an intelligent Orc who found the Heart of Aszune. This is the essence of her heart, precious to the NIght Elves. It has the power to heal the Hero that wields it. This item is permanent.

NEW ITEM ACQUIRED
Frost Wyrm Skull Shield
This Ancient Frost Wyrm skull has been equipped with handles, turning it into a powerful shield. Increases armor by 2 when worn and reduces Magic damage dealt to the Hero by 33%

On their way out, they found the fourth Lieutenant, and set to leave the damned dungeons.

MAIN QUEST COMPLETED
Blood Elf Lieutenants

MAIN QUEST
Slay Jailor Kassan
Slay Jailor Kassan and his guards
Kael and Vashj must survive

The old Jailor of the sewer prison of Dalaran blocks the final gate barring you from the surface. Kill him and those guarding the gate with him so that the wrongfully imprisoned Blood Elves can push the fight into the city.

Jailor Kassan: You’ve gone as far as you’re going to go, Prince Kael. Make it easy on yourself.

Prince Kael’thas: You served the Kirin Tor well, Kassan, but the old order has passed away. My people and I are leaving his damned prison one way or another.

Jailor Kassan: It’s a shame to see a good wizard gone bad. Do what you have to do, lad.

Prince Kael’thas: My brethren are assembled, Vashj. Now all we need to do is reach this portal of yours and—

Lady Vashj: Hold, good prince. We will need to keep the portal open long enough to usher everyone through. But Garithos’ forces will likely attack it before we can make our escape.

Prince Kael’thas: Then I will hold him at bay. I’ll buy you all the time you’ll need.

The Lieutenants find the other Blood Elves and rally them to meet Kael’thas and Lady Vashj above—preparing to enter the portal to Outland.
