Location: Near Brill, Tirisfal Glades
Two days later, at her base camp in the newly formed Plaguelands, Sylvanas ponders her newfound freedom and her future as one of hte cursed undead.
Banshee: You seem troubled, mistress.
Sylvanas Windrunner: Aren’t you, sister? Only days ago, we were the Lich King’s slaves. We existed only to slaughter in his name. And now we are … free.
Banshee: I don’t understand, mistress. I thought you’d be overjoyed.
Varimathras: Greetings, Lady Sylvanas. My brothers and I appreciate the role you played in overthrowing Arthas. I’ve come to offer you a formal invitation to join our new order.
Sylvanas Windrunner: Varimathras. My only interest was in seeing Arthas dead. I have no time for your petty politics or power mongering.
Varimathras: Careful, milady. It would be unwise to incur our wrath. We are the future of these … Plaguelands. You can either join us and rule or be cast aside.
Sylvanas Windrunner: I lived as a slave long enough, Dreadlord. I won’t relinquish my freedom by shackling myself to you fools!
Varimathras: So be it. Our reply will come soon.
– Destroy the Red Undead Base
Varimathras has been dispatched here to lure Sylvanas to the three Dreadlords’ cause. Sylvanas has her own plans for Arthas and will take Lordaeron for herself without the help of these pathetic Demons. Destroy Varimathras and his Undead Army.
NEW UNIT AVAILABLE
Obsidian Statue – You may now build Obsidian Statues from the Slaughterhouse. Activate Spirit Touch to replenish mana in nearby friendly units.
NEW UNIT AVAILABLE
Nerubian Tower – A ziggurat can now be upgraded into this tower, which damages and slows enemy units.
Sylvanas Windrunner: Be ready. Varimathras will attack soon. With only our sister banshees and a few ghouls to aid us, it will be difficult to fend him off.
HINT – Deactivate Curse to conserve your Banshee’s mana for Possession
Banshee: Mistress, we’re under attack!
HINT – Sylvanas can auto-cast Black Arrow on enemy units. If a unit dies while affected by Black Arrow, a Dark Minion will spawn from the corpse to serve her. Sylvanas can use Silence to prevent enemies in a target area from casting spells.
Banshee: The Dreadlords’ forces have arrived!
After defeating this wave of attacks, Sylvanas leaves the camp to explore the area for resources to counter the Dreadlord Varimathras’ forces taking a cadre of Banshees with her to possess unsuspecting victims. Their first target were Ogres
Sylvanas Windrunner: These curs were hardly worth the effort.
Banshee: Perhaps, mistress. But there are more of them out there. If we could lure them to our side, they would be a great help against Varimathras’ Forces.
Sylvanas Windrunner: How very clever of you, sister. Possessing these lowly creatures could turn the tide in our favor! We’ll start with their leader. Once we have him, subverting his warriors will be child’s play.
– Possess the warlord Ogre Mug’thol
Mug’thol the Warlord is preparing his Ogres for a battle in the hills. Find Mug’thol and possess his soul so that his war preparations are not wasted on the wrong enemy.
Banshee: Our base is under attack! We must bolster our defenses.
Sylvanas Windrunner: Those mangy gnolls could bolster our forces.
Snarlmane (Gnoll Leader): Back, you dead! No one trespasses our territory!
Elsewhere, near a Murloc settlement …
Sylvanas Windrunner: These slimy wretches could serve us well!
HINT – Attack the rock wall to reach Mug’thol the Ogre Warlord
Mug’thol: Me warlord Mug’thol! Me crush weak dead!
Sylvanas Windrunner: I think not.
A Banshee approaches Warlord Mug’thol and possesses him.
Sylvanas Windrunner: Feel any better, Mug’thol?
Mug’thol: Me serve pretty ghost now. Mug’thol’s warriors serve too.
Sylvanas Windrunner: Glad to hear it. Let’s move out!
OPTIONAL QUEST COMPLETED
HINT – You can now purchase Ogres from the Mercenary Camp. These heavily muscled fighters are more brawn than brain, but they can absorb and inflict a lot of punishment
Sylvanas Windrunner: That brute must be Zul’rogg the troll chieftain. Forest trolls! I hate them even more than those cursed dreadlords. Slaughter them all!
Elsewhere, Sylvanas finds an encampment of Human bandits.
Sylvanas Windrunner: These bandits will serve me well. Let’s find their ringleader and steal his mind.
– Possess Blackthorn the Bandit Lord
With Lordaeron in ashes, the few remaining HUmans have turned on each other. The ruthless Bandit Lord in this region could prove to be an invaluable asset. Find this Bandit Lord and possess him to further bolster your forces.
Sylvanas Windrunner: You may as well surrender now, cretin. You’ll be my slave one way or another.
Blackthorn: Never! Ugh, Lady Sylvanas is master here. We fight for her, brothers!
Sylvanas Windrunner: Hmm … my own band of assassins. Intriguing.
OPTIONAL QUEST COMPLETED
HINT – You can now purchase Bandits from the Mercenary Camp. These unscrupulous troops are at their best when attacking from a safe distance preferably from behind.
Sylvanas Windrunner: Your scheming brothers can’t help you now Varimathras! You underestimated me, dreadlord. Now you’re going to pay.
MAIN QUEST COMPLETED
Sylvanas Windrunner: Any final words, demon?
Varimathras: Sylvanas, spare my life. I beg you! I can be of service—I swear it!
Sylvanas Windrunner: Just like a demon. You’d sell your brethren out just to save your own skin. I’m listening.
Varimathras: I know what my brothers’ plans are. I know where their forces are based. Just let me serve you, and I’ll help you defeat them!
Sylvanas Windrunner: All right, Varimathras. I’ll let you prove your loyalty to me. But be warned—I’m keeping you on a short leash.
