Meet Illidan Stormrage. Seek out Barthamus in the Lower City of Shattrath should you survive.

You will need:

  • Meeting with Illidan Stormrage


Come, highlord <name>. Illidan himself awaits us!


I was the first, you know. The abandoned child of a monster...

<Barthamus shakes his head.>

We owe you everything, <name>. You have single-handedly shattered the Dragonmaw empire and gathered enough information to keep my brethren occupied for ten lifetimes.

It is not much but there is something that we can offer... My kin have each offered to join you on your mission in Outland. Simply ask and they will bond with you.

Quest Dialogue

During this quest, Overlord Mor'ghor summons an image of Illidan at the Dragonmaw Base Camp to meet the "Dragonmaw orc" (the player in disguise) who will be their champion:

Overlord Mor'ghor says: Come, <name>. Lord Stormrage awaits.
Overlord Mor'ghor yells: Warriors of Dragonmaw, gather 'round! One among you has attained the rank of highlord! Bow your heads in reverence! Show your respect and allegiance to Highlord <name>!
Overlord Mor'ghor says: Lord Illidan will be here shortly.
An image of Illidan appears.
Overlord Mor'ghor yells: All hail Lord Illidan!
Overlord Mor'ghor says: Lord Illidan, this is the Dragonmaw that I, and others, have told you about. He will lead us to victory!
Illidan Stormrage says: What is the meaning of this, Mor'ghor?
Overlord Mor'ghor says: But... My lord, I do not understand. <name>... <He/She> is the orc that has...
Illidan Stormrage says: SILENCE!
Illidan Stormrage says: Blathering idiot. You incomprehensibly incompetent buffoon...
Illidan Stormrage says: THIS is your hero?
Illidan Stormrage says: You have been deceived, imbecile.
Illidan Stormrage says: This... whole... operation... HAS BEEN COMPROMISED!
Illidan immobilizes you.
Illidan Stormrage says: I expect to see this insect's carcass in pieces in my lair within the hour. Fail and you will suffer a fate so much worse than death.
Overlord Mor'ghor says: It will be done, my lord.
Illidan's image vanishes.
Overlord Mor'ghor says: So you thought to make a fool of Mor'ghor, eh? Before you are delivered to Lord Illidan, you will feel pain that you could not know to exist. I will take pleasure in exacting my own vengeance.
Yarzill the Merc says: You will not harm the <boy/girl>, Mor'ghor! Quickly, <name>, climb on my back!
Yarzill the Merc transforms into a nether dragon!


Riding off into the sunset on Yarzill's back

At the end of the dialogue sequence, Yarzill transforms into a nether dragon and carries the player to Shattrath City. The trip is slow, as Yarzill flies at about walking speed. It is advised to have the necessary time before triggering this quest, although as of patch 2.3.0 the speed has been raised.

For hunters, Warlocks, and Death Knights (Unholy), when the script runs its course and the player gets the debuff, this buff isn't transferred to the pet as well, making every guard in the vicinity kill the pet. To avoid this, dismiss the pet.
