The Alliance Expedition,[1] also known as the Draenor Expedition,[2] or the Alliance expeditionary force,[3] was a military venture to the orc homeworld of Draenor following the Second War, with the goal of reclaiming the Book of Medivh from Ner'zhul, and stopping the orc from opening portals to other worlds.


Heroes of the Alliance Expedition

The expeditionary forces were led by:

While the expedition was ultimately successful in retrieving the Book of Medivh following a string of military victories on Draenor, Ner'zhul had learned enough from the book to succeed with his plan to open numerous portals. Knowing that this would cause the destruction of Draenor, the Alliance forces chose to close the Dark Portal in order to protect Azeroth from the forces Ner'zhul had unleashed. Their fate was unknown to those on Azeroth. They were last seen entering a portal to escape the destruction of Draenor. When Ner'zhul and his forces entered a different portal, they were immediately captured by the Burning Legion, though the fate of the Alliance Expedition was unknown.

The heroes of the expedition are commemorated by statues in the Valley of Heroes in Stormwind.

The Burning Crusade

The aging surviving members call themselves the Sons of Lothar (coined by Turalyon), and there is a monument at Honor Hold to remember those who were not so fortunate.


Though Turalyon was the Supreme Commander of the Alliance following the death of Anduin Lothar, the Alliance Expedition itself was led by Khadgar, who had called for the army to be rallied at Nethergarde and led into the Dark Portal to Draenor. As Khadgar's task was by far the most important - to retrieve the Book of Medivh and seal the Dark Portal to save Azeroth from destruction - Turalyon and his lieutenants deferred to him when it came to ways to achieve that task. Otherwise, the command of the Expedition's forces fell under Turalyon's purview.
