Hidden Enemies is the first in a small Horde quest line that involves infiltrating the Burning Blade Clan at the request of Thrall. In this quest, players must acquire a token identifying the bearer as a ranking member of the demon cult.


Bring a Lieutenant's Insignia to Thrall in Orgrimmar.


One thing I will not tolerate are traitors in our midst, <name>. But I would be a fool to play my hand so early—it would not sufficiently cut the corruption out of our lands and only cause the infection to grow worse.

But you, a young adventurer, could go places my agents could not... could learn the truth... could find the true head of the beast.

If you are brave enough, then enter Skull Rock to the east of Orgrimmar, find a lieutenant's insignia off one of the Burning Blade there, and return to me.


Do you have the insignia yet, <name>?

It will be a vital tool in infiltrating what I believe is the greatest threat to the Horde, and finally finding peace in our new home.

You will learn how intricate a web men and orcs alike can weave when they are motivated by greed and power. The hidden agendas, the corruption, all of it will become clear. You will find yourself in the midst of a war you never knew existed.


Good, <name>! The spirits be praised, perhaps you are the one who will finally put my greatest fears to rest! Who would suspect someone so young and so brave would rise up and champion our cause? You remind me of myself when I was younger. I will ensure that you are justly rewarded for your efforts if we both survive the coming storm.

But there is time for more praise later. You've not accomplished anything in comparison to what you will face... but this is a good start.


You will receive: 2s 50c



  • This quest becomes avaliable only after you meet two conditions: you must reach level 10 and you must already have completed Report to Orgnil.
  • You may wish to complete this quest along with the Skull Rock quest, as both require you to enter this cave.
  • You may also wish to find and kill a Burning Blade Orc named Gazz'uz and retrieve the Eye of Burning Shadow from his corpse. This item will allow one to receive the Burning Shadows quest.
