Notes Edit

Accept the quest, then swim outside. There's a few phases. Stick close to Erunak and watch what the captain says. When he says to 'save yourself', swim away. Players will be caught by a Zin'jatar Abductor and taken away to be saved by Erunak and a few other members of the Earthen Ring.

On accept:

Captain Taylor yells: To battle, men!
Stormwind Soldier yells: For Stormwind!

After fighting for a while, Taylor will call for help:

Captain Taylor yells: There are too many! Shaman, do something!
Erunak will float up and kill all of the naga in one shot.
Captain Taylor yells: Rest while you can, men. That wasn't the last of them...
The next wave attacks!
Captain Taylor yells: Brace yourselves, men!
Captain Taylor yells: Make them pay!
After some time, a SEAL or two gets captured.
Captain Taylor yells: Stay alert! Don't let them drag you away!
Stormwind Seal yells: No! Ahhhh....
Captain Taylor yells: Don't give up! Fight! Fight for the Alliance!
Stormwind Seal yells: Gah! heeelp!
Captain Taylor yells: Their numbers are... endless...
Captain Taylor yells: My men - they're all taken... Go! Save yourselves!
Erunak swims off. The last stragglers, including the player, are stunned and captured.
Zin'jatar Abductor says: What a fine ssspecimen you are.
Zin'jatar Abductor says: My Lady will be most grateful for my effortsss.
After swimming for a bit, Erunak and two other members of the Earthen Ring appear to save the player by killing the abductor!
Erunak Stonespeaker says: We were most fortunate to escape, <name>. Follow me.
The party swims to Shallow's End.
