Location: Hellfire Peninsula, Outland
After three days of fruitless searching, Prince Kael’thas and Lady Vashj realize they are lost in the barren wilderness of the Hellfire Peninsula.
Prince Kael’thas: :This place is unnerving. We’ve marched for three days and seen no signs of life. Still, I can’t shake the feeling that we’re not alone out here.
Lady Vashj: We aren’t. I caught the scent just as the wind shifted …
Night elves! What could they be doing here?
Prince Kael’thas: :The warden, Maiev, swore to capture Illidan at any cost. She must have brought her warriors here to hunt him! There! Illidan lies chained in that cage! The night elves must be taking him to their stronghold.
Lady Vashj: Then we must rescue him before they reach safety.
The Demon Within
– Use your Heroes to recapture Illidan’s cage
– The cage must not reach the NIght Elf base
Lord Illidan has been captured by the cunning Warden in a cage of magical enchantments. Slay the guardians of the cage and take it from the Night Elves before they reach the safety of their base.
NOTICE – You are only able to control Prince Kael’thas and Lady Vash, while attempting to retrieve Lord Illidan. The rest of your army will automatically engage Maiev’s forces.
NEW UNIT ACQUIRED
Pandaren Brewmaster – This warrior Hero is available to you on this mission as a reward for defeating all 30 waves of the Secret Mission.
HINT – While Maiev is away, you can seize control of Illidan’s cage by moving Prince Kael’thas or Lady Vashj near the cage.
Prince Kael’thas: :Illidan is unconscious, and this magical lock will take too long to open out here!
Maiev Shadowsong: Blood Elves and naga! Your bastard races are an affront to everything the night elves stand for! Death to all who side with the Betrayer! I grow tired of these games! Illidan will be mine!
MAIN QUEST COMPLETED
Though free from the Warden’s grasp, Illidan remains weak, and the enchantments on the cage cannot be broken easily. You must escort Illidan’s cage to the Blood Elf base, where the protection of Kael’s army will give you time to break the magical locks.
Illidan Stormrage: Lady Vashj, your rescue was most timely. The thought of spending another ten thousand years in Maiev’s prison was not a pleasant one.
Lady Vashj: We could not forsake you, Lord Illidan. But you owe your freedom to them.
Illidan Stormrage: Who are they, Vashj? The young elf looks familiar, but …
Lady Vashj: They call themselves the Blood Elves, my Lord. They are the last mortal descendents of the Highborne who served you long ago. This is Prince Kael’thas. He and his brethren have come to bask in your wisdom—and pledge themselves to your will.
