The Purge of Dalaran

Just yesterday my head was swimming with questions; Did Jaina really kick the horde from the Kirin-tor? What does this mean for Dalaran? Will we maybe see a phased version much like the current 2 phases of Theramore?

Where am I with the on-going Operation Sheildwall quest chain:

The Purge of Dalaran

The Sunreavers aided the Horde in retrieving the Divine Bell, which was stored in Darnassus, so the Alliance are expelling the Sunreavers from Dalaran.

  • Sewer Cleaning: Kill 16 Sunreavers hiding in the Dalaran Sewers.
  • Unfair Trade: Kill the hidden Sunreavers in Dalaran’s shops.
  • Nowhere to Hide: The Sunreavers who did not accept Jaina’s agreement are now being tracked down and killed.
  • Cashing Out: Prevent a Sunreaver Magistrate from withdrawing gold before escaping.
  • Nowhere to Run: Subdue the Sunreaver Dragonhawks to prevent the elves from escaping.
  • What Had To Be Done: Speak to King Varian Wyrnn.

As you know, our night elven allies moved the Divine Bell you retrieved to Darnassus for safekeeping and study. Moments ago, they portaled some Highbourne mages over here to ask for backup. Details are hazy – some sort of stealth attack on the city? I don’t know what to make of it, but Jaina Proudmoore is already on the scene and I suspect they need all the help they can get. Speak to Seamus Goldenkicks over there for a quick portal to Darnassus. Find Jaina!

The Purge of Dalaran

The Sunreaver’s Sanctuary is still crawling with those Horde-loving Sunreavers. Jaina will have sent the reasonable ones to the Violet Hold. The rest refuse to leave, raising their weapons against us. Show them the cost of their defiance. They now face the judgment of the Alliance, the Silver Covenant, and the Kirin Tor!

Do these Sunreavers look scared? Honestly they appear to be having a lively discussion around a fully laden table of food. I’m sure by this point they must be rehashing who to blame for there hand hand in helping Garrosh steal the Divine Bell?

Nowhere To Hide

Compliant Sunreavers will be sent to the Violet Hold. Defiant ones are put to the sword. NONE are to escape. The Sunreavers keep their dragonhawk mounts on Krasus’ Landing. Take this dust, and use it to render them incapable of flying. Or kill them. I don’t care.

Is it just me being freaky or does watching these dragonhawks circling around look similar to watching a fish tank full of guppies?


I just saw one of the Sunreavers – Brasael, I think his name was – running off in the direction of the bank to the north. No doubt he’s trying to gather whatever assets he can before he leaves. Head him off and make sure he doesn’t steal any resources from our coffers. He relinquished whatever funds he left in the bank when he and his Sunreaver kind betrayed us.

It’s like an ATM, he drops loot-able piles of gold on the ground after you kill him and he respawns quick to do it again!

Cashing Out
The Purge of Dalaran

King Varian Wrynn says: Jaina! What’s happening in Dalaran? Has there been an attack? Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: The Kirin Tor was betrayed from within. I’ve handled the situation. King Varian Wrynn says: How? Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: I’ve purged the Horde from Dalaran. You have what you wanted, Your Majesty: The Kirin Tor belongs to the Alliance. King Varian Wrynn says: But you said-

Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: I know what I said. My trust was misplaced. King Varian Wrynn says: What of the Sin’dorei – the Sunreavers? Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Those that surrendered are being taken to the Violet Hold. I make no guarantees about those who chose to fight. King Varian Wrynn says: Jaina, you need to talk to me before you act-

Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: How I run the Kirin Tor is my business. King Varian Wrynn says: I was trying to negotiate with the Sin’dorei. I was opening discussions to bring them into the Alliance! By attacking their people, you’ve forced their hand-

Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: They chose their own path. King Varian Wrynn says: You’ve driven them back to the Horde. Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: You’re fooling yourself. Once Horde, always Horde. I see that now. I’m mobilizing the Kirin Tor. King Varian Wrynn says: Jaina. We’ve got to work together on this. The Alliance must act as one. Lady Jaina Proudmoore says: Don’t get soft on me, Varian.

The Purge of Dalaran

While the quest chain is intriguing ultimately I have to agree with the following comment; It’s not fun when you, as a soldier of the Alliance, commit acts that you believe are solely in the repertoire of the Horde.

Once again I had mail waiting:
