Free 15 Alliance Slaves and kill Forgemaster Garfrost.


They're put our captured soldiers to work in the quarry! Kill their captors and set them free, hero, and do it quickly. We will need their aid when we confront Scourgelord Tyrannus.


You will receive: 29Gold 60Silver


You've done well this day. With many of the slaves freed and now with access to the forges, it will not be long before I have a strong force to aid in delivering us from Scourgelord Tyrannus and this foul pit.


Before Jaina offers the quest, she and a host of Coliseum Champions zone in as the player party advances on the two Deathwhisper Necrolytes guarding the entrance and the Scourgelord Tyrannus, hovering above them on a frost wyrm, Rimefang. The following event then takes place:

Scourgelord Tyrannus yells: Intruders have entered your master's domain. Signal the alarms!
Lady Jaina Proudmoore yells: Heroes of the Alliance, attack!
The champions charge.
Scourgelord Tyrannus yells: Hrmph, fodder. Not even fit to labor in the quarry. Relish these final moments for soon you will be nothing more than mindless undead.
Scourgelord Tyrannus slaughters the champions with Necromantic Power by levitating and strangulating the coliseum champions.
Scourgelord Tyrannus yells: Your last waking memory will be of agonizing pain.
Tyrannus raises the dead champions into undeath as Corrupted Champions.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore yells: NO! YOU MONSTER!
Scourgelord Tyrannus yells: Minions, destroy these interlopers!
Lady Jaina Proudmoore yells: I do what I must. Please forgive me, noble soldiers.
The champions begin the counterattack. Jaina freezes them with Empowered Blizzard, then strikes with Ice Lance Volley while the archmages pick off stragglers with Frostfire Bolts.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: You will have to make your way across this quarry on your own.
Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Free any Alliance slaves that you come across. We will most certainly need their assistance in battling Tyrannus. I will gather reinforcements and join you on the other side of the quarry.
