The Dusts of Outland is an interlude in the campaign Curse of the Blood Elves.
- Kael'thas - What is this desolate place, Vashj?
- Lady Vashj - This shattered world is called Outland, young prince. It is all that remains of Draenor, the former homeland of the orcish Horde.
- Kael'thas - Amazing. I remember when Khadgar led the Alliance Expedition here, years ago. He almost succeeded in wiping the orcs out for good. In an attempt to escape, Ner'zhul opened a number of massive dimensional gateways, but all they succeeded in doing was tearing their planet apart.
- Lady Vashj - Yes. And now, amongst the ruins of this dead world, we have come to find the master.
- Kael'thas - Illidan... why here? What could possibly interest him in this barren wasteland?
- Lady Vashj - That I do not know. Regardless, we should seek him out quickly.
- Kael'thas - Agreed. Actually, I am anxious to meet him again. If he can cure my people of their hunger for magic, I will gladly pledge myself to his service.
