A Fishy Peril
While you're not sure you'd have better chances than Remy, you do as he has asked. Marshal Dughan tells you that he can't justify sending more troops to deal with the murlocs without some sort of military report.
Since you persist, Marshal Dughan tells you to find Guard Thomas in eastern Elwynn, and bring back a report from him about the murlocs.
Guard Thomas confirms that yes, murlocs have arrived. And they're troublesome. Thomas is working on his report, but has been waiting for the return of Rolf and Malakai, two guards he had upriver to scout out the situation. They've not returned back yet. You want a report, he wants to know where his guards are. Easy enough.
You journey upriver, and just shy of the lake you run across human remains. Around the neck of the half-eaten corpse you find a medallion: "Footman Malakai Stone".
You look around for Rolf, but only find webbed footprints leading east along the lake. You resolve to look there for further signs.
Between two huts in the murloc village, you find the corpse of another guardsman, identified by the medallion "Footman Rolf Hartford".
You return to Thomas with the two medallions, and describe the fate of his footmen. Thomas agrees that the murlocs are a danger that can no longer be ignored.
Thomas instructs you to tell Marshal Dughan about Malakai and Ralf's deaths, and to report that more troops are needed.
- You will later find that troops are scarce all over.
Marshal Dughan receives the report with dismay, but recognizes that he'll have to scrape up the forces from somewhere lest the fighting spread clear to Goldshire. He thanks you for your valor, and gives you a marker for a piece of armor, to be taken to Sara Timberlain at the Eastvale Logging Camp.
You go back again to the logging camp, and Sara honors the marker. She only has cloth and leather armor to choose from, but it's the same armor she sells to the army.
