Wrath Gate Quest Chain   (FORUM POST)


 Part of the Horde questline for the Wrath Gate event. This quest line is very long and spans the entire length of Dragonblight.
Quite honestly, I consider this one of the most important quest lines (thus far) in Wrath. A must-do for any hordeling. :)

In quite a few of these chains there are optional prequests.
I will not list these, despite them being in the quest series list, because they are just that: Optional.
I will list the LATEST quest available that will start the chain, or the one most likely to pick up while completing other parts of this chain.

Additionally, these quests are Horde Only.
I, unfortunately, do not have an Alliance character on the Beta, so I do not have access to any alliance quests. Sorry!

Step names are purely flavor.
They generalize what that part of the chain leads up to/is about.

I highly urge everyone to read the quest text.
This quest line is quite possibly one of the most epic in Warcraft history and is highly worth the time.
Lore lovers and haters alike should enjoy them.

Wrath Gate Quest Chain


For the Alliance! Here are the quest steps you need to go through for this achievement.
"Optional" quests are those that can be done with the main quests with little to no extra effort.  

 Like the Horde version, I cannot recommend enough that you take the time to read the quest text.
Seriously, this is one of the best questlines in the game, hands down.
It's worth taking the extra time to read everything.

Part 1:

1) The Lost Courier
2) Of Traitors and Treason
3) High Commander Halford Wyrmbane
4) Naxxramas and the Fall of Wintergarde
5) Flight of the Wintergarde Defender
6) Return to the High Commander

At this point, the High Commander will give you two quests.

Part 2a:

1) Rescue from Town Square (optional: The Fate of the Dead)
2) Find Durkon!
3) The Noble's Crypt
4) Secrets of the Scourge (obtained from the tome to the right of Necrolord Amarion)
5) Mystery of the Tome
6) Understanding the Language of Death
7) A Righteous Sermon

Part 2b:

1) The Demo-gnome
2) The Search for Slinkin (optional: The Bleeding Ore and Not in Our Mine)
3) Leave Nothing to Chance
4) Understanding the Scourge War Machine

Then, everything meets up again at the High Commander, and you go back to one line of quests.

Part 3:
1) Into Hostile Territory
2) Steamtank Surprise
3) Scattered to the Wind
4) The Chain Gun And You
5) Plunderbeard Must Be Found! (optional: Breaking Off A Piece)
6) Plunderbeard's Journal
7) Chasing Icestorm: The 7th Legion Front
8) Chasing Icestorm: Thel'zan's Phylactery
9) Finality

Part 4:
1) An End And A Beginning
2) To Fordragon Hold!
3) Audience With The Dragon Queen
4) Galakrond and the Scourge
5) On Ruby Wings
6) Return To Angrathar

As soon as you complete the last quest, you will be shown the Wrath Gate cinematic, and when it's over, you'll receive the achievement.

If you want to finish the questline, it's only five more quests:

1) Reborn From The Ashes
2) Fate, Up Against Your Will
3) A Royal Coup
4) The Killing Time
5) The Battle For The Undercity





 XP/Rep through the cinematic (didn't keep track for 'Step 7', doh).
In the interest of not typing as much, I didn't type 'xp' or 'rep'.
First number (the big one) is xp, 2nd one is rep.
Before abbreviating a faction (WO, for instance), I spell it out fully (Warsong Offensive).

(900 from quests, plus half of the total from Taunka/WO/HoV rep gains).
May actually be 2,923, since the total 'spillover' rep is 2,022.5, and I'm not sure how it's rounded.
