Stealing the Horde's Flames

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

Knifey may be retired now but he is still around to share some wisdom with the rest of the guild. During last year's midsummer festival Knifey dared to enter the four Horde capital cities to steal their flames, being rewarded with a neat crown for his efforts.

Extreme Mining in Wintergrasp
