Accept the quest, then swim outside. There's a few phases. Stick close to Erunak and watch what the legionnaire says. When he says to 'save yourself', swim away. Players will be caught by a Zin'jatar Abductor and taken away to be saved by Erunak and a few other members of the Earthen Ring.

On accept:

Legionnaire Nazgrim yells: Blood and Thunder!
Hellscream's Vanguard yells: For Hellscream!

After fighting for a while, Nazgrim will call for help:

Legionnaire Nazgrim yells: They swarm us, shaman! Make yourself useful!
Erunak will float up and kill all of the naga in one shot.
Legionnaire Nazgrim yells: Keep your wits, warriors! There are naga yet to kill!
The next wave attacks!
Legionnaire Nazgrim yells: Axes ready! The enemy approaches!
Legionnaire Nazgrim yells: Warriors! Make 'em Bleed!
Legionnaire Nazgrim yells: For the Horde!
After some time, a vanguard or two gets captured.
Legionnaire Nazgrim yells: Stand your ground... fight!
Hellscream's Vanguard yells: Nazgrim! They have me....
Legionnaire Nazgrim yells: Fight like the orcs you were meant to be! There is no retreat!
Hellscream's Vanguard yells: Grahhhh!
Legionnaire Nazgrim yells: Thrall's balls! They're everywhere...
Legionnaire Nazgrim yells: We are... beaten. Escape if you can...
Erunak swims off. The last stragglers, including the player, are stunned and captured.
Zin'jatar Abductor says: What a fine ssspecimen you are.
Zin'jatar Abductor says: My Lady will be most grateful for my effortsss.
After swimming for a bit, Erunak and two other members of the Earthen Ring appear to save the player by killing the abductor!

The party swims to Shallow's End.
