Lantresor of the Blade -half-orc – Leader of the Boulderfist
To access this chain quest you must complete all quests from Jorin Deadeye at Garadar. Jorin is son of Kilrogg – Warchief of the Bleeding Hollow. He will eventually send you to Lantresor of the Blade. He reveals to be a half-breed: orc and draenei lineage.
Lantresor is leader of the Boulderfist Ogres in Nagrand and used to serve under Blackhand and Orgrim Doomhammer as a veteran Blademaster of the Burning Blade. He presummably fled to Draenor during the Second War when Blackrock Spire fell to Turalyon and the Alliance forces.
Lantresor: Who so boldly stands before Lantresor of the Blade? Do you not know death by sight?
You: I have killed many of your ogres, Lantresor. I have no fear.
Lantresor: Then you are a fool. Do you not know what I am?
You: Should I know? You look like an orc to me.
Lantresor: An orc ..
I am a blademaster of half-orc descent.
You: And the other half?
Lantresor: Draenei … And because of this, I am neither. Not orc, not draenei. My own kind are a rare breed. Most having been killed decades ago … I live because of my strength of will.
You: I have heard of your kind, but I never thought to see the day when I would meet a half-breed.
Lantresor: Bite your tongue. I have seen things in my lifetime that you have only heard about it in legends. I have killed man, woman and child without remorse. Under the banner of two Warchiefs of the Horde I have served … And now, I rule Boulderfist.
You: My apologies. I did not mean to offend. I am here on behalf of my people.
Lantresor: And what do your people want of Lantresor?
You: My people ask that you pull back your Boulderfist ogres and cease all attacks on our territories. In return, we will also pull back our forces.
Lantresor: (Lantresor laughs heartily)
Do you know where you are, fool? This is ogre land. Before orc, before draenei, there was ogre. Yet, you wish to start a war that you will inevitably lose? Boulderfist does not destroy you. Warmaul will …
But I think your leaders already know this …
You: We will fight you until the end, then, Lantresor. We will not stand idly by as you pillage our towns and kill our people.
Lantresor: (Lantresor glares at you as if he were looking through you.)
Perhaps there is another way … I will agree to your leader’s demands, only if you do exactly as I ask.
With your assistance, we may be able to help each other out greatly.
You: What do I need to do?
Lantresor: So what is your decision? Will it be war or will you lend your assistance?
You will stage a series of events that will lead the Kil’sorrow orcs of Kil’sorrow Fortress to believe that the Warmaul ogres have attacked their base and then another series of events to make the Warmaul ogres believe the Kil’sorrow orcs are attacking their base.
Do this and you solve both of our problems.
The Boulderfist will have their territory back and your people will be free from attack from Boulderfist, Warmaul and Shadow Council.
ARMAMENTS FOR DECEPTION
Lantresor: You will need to steal Kil’sorrow armaments from Kil’sorrow Fortress if my plan is to work.
Search the fortress for crates of Kil’sorrow armaments. Bring whatever you can find to me.
Kil’sorrow Fortress is located directly south and a little to the west of the Burning Blade Ruins.
Lantresor of the Blade at the Burning Blade Ruins in Nagrand wants you to collect 20 Kil’sorrow Armaments.
Lantresor: We will ignite a hatred heretofore unseen between the two clans!
Excellent! Our next target will be the Laughing Skull Ruins.
(Lantresor hands you a pack full of banners.)
Lantresor: These are Warmaul ogre banners that I recently acquired.
I want you to travel to Kil’sorrow Fortress, directly south of here, and kill as many of the Kil’sorrow filth as you can find. Drive a Warmaul ogre banner through the heart of each fallen Kil’sorrow soldier. Return to me when you have completed this task and the other that this plan requires.
Lantresor of the Blade at the Burning Blade Ruins in Nagrand wants you to drive 20 Warmaul Ogre Banners through the bodies of Kil’sorrow members at Kil’sorrow Fortress.
(Lantresor’s eyes open in bewilderment.)
Lantresor: Is it done?
Can you imagine their puzzlement over what is happening? This will be glorious.
RETURNING THE FAVOR
Lantresor: Now you must plant the seed of war in the fat, useless heads of the Warmaul. To the northwest, near the mountains, you will find the Laughing Skull Ruins.
(Lantresor points into the crate of armaments you brought him.)
Do you recognize those banners? They are Kil’sorrow banners. I want you to take a stack of Kil’sorrow banners and plant them on the corpses of Warmaul ogres. Remember, northwest is where you will find the ogres.
Lantresor of the Blade at the Burning Blade Ruins in Nagrand wants you to drive 20 Kil’sorrow Banners through the bodies of Warmaul ogres at the Laughing Skull Ruins.
Return any unused Kil’sorrow Banners.
Lantresor: Can you predict what will happen next?
The plan is perfect. I am already seeing the fruits of your labor.
BODY OF EVIDENCE
Lantresor: Your rampage through Kil’sorrow Fortress has provided us with a special opportunity. We have enough bodies to make it appear as if a great battle has taken place.
Travel to the Laughing Skull Ruins and find the Laughing Skull Courtyard. There should be a blazing pyre in the courtyard. Make sure the area is secure and then use this blanket to send up smoke signals. When my ogres see the smoke, they will sneak in and plant the bodies of slain Kil’sorrow soldiers.
That should be the final straw!
Lantresor of the Blade at the Burning Blade Ruins in Nagrand wants you to use the Damp Woolen Blanket at the Blazing Warmaul Pyre in the Laughing Skull Courtyard to signal his ogres.

Lantresor: Do you now understand why you could never win a war against me?
I must admit. I have not felt this alive in decades. You have performed well.
MESSAGE TO GARADAR
(Lantresor points to an unmarked crate.)
Lantresor: Take it. It is my offering to your people. You have single-handedly saved my clan from extermination.
You may tell your leader that I Lantresor of the Burning Blade and his Boulderfist ogres accept the offering of peace.
Take the Burning Blade Peace Offering to Garrosh at Garadar.
You will receive:
Burning Blade Cultist Band
You will also receive:
(Garrosh seems unmoved by the offering.)
(Garrosh kicks the crate aside.)
Garrosh: You waste your time. Take whatever you desire from the crate. I nor Garadar have any need for these useless trinkets.
