The Ebon Watcher at the Valley of Echoes in Icecrown wants you to kill 3 Forgotten Depths High Priests, 3 Forgotten Depths Underkings, and 8 Reanimated Crusaders.

  •  Forgotten Depths High Priest slain (3)
  •  Forgotten Depths Underking slain (3)
  •  Reanimated Crusader slain (8)


The Scourge have sent their armies at the Argent Crusade and have been repelled. What they do now is called a 'slash and burn.' All prisoners that they hold at Scourgeholme will be executed and raised as servants of the Lich King.

Undoubtedly the Argent Crusade will request that you give their soldiers a proper farewell. I'll ask no such thing of you. To succeed we must kill Scourge indiscriminately.

Venture to Scourgeholme, northwest through the Breach, and lay waste to all that stand in your way.


Do not waste time, <name>.


You have done well, <name>. Keeping their numbers down will give the Argent Crusade the time that they need to set a foundation.


This quest combines well with The Restless Dead and The Scourgestone.
