Part of the Scourge Invasion was fought in Stormwind, this battle is also called The Winds of War[2] and Echoes of Doom.

The battleEdit

The battle began swiftly as Frost Wyrm Raptors disabled key Alliance defenses such as cannons and war glaives.Abominations moved in to fight to raze Stormwind, but faced fierce resistance from the Stormwind City Guards and the Alliance adventurers, veterans of a recently hard fought campaign in Outland.

The Frost Wyrm Raptors strafed the fighters below with icey breath, occasionally swooping down from the sky to bite and claw the defenders, picking up guards with their massive talons and dropping them to their deaths. King Varian Wrynn urged his champions to prevail, participating in the battle himself and killing Frost Wyrms and Abominations singlehandedly alongside Bolvar Fordragon. In the end, the Alliance won victory over the Scourge, demolishing the abominations on the ground, as aid arrived in the form of the Ironforge Airforce, which drove back the assault along with aid from the Mage Quarter and cannonfire from the ramparts and fleet.

The battle for Stormwind was over...but the battle against the Lich King and his Scourge army was just beginning...
