Find Balthule Shadowstrike near the Tower of Althalaxx in Darkshore.
Hail, young [race]. I am Elissa Starbreeze, and it is my charge to protect Auberdine from harm.
To this end, I sent Balthule Shadowstrike to observe the strange happenings around the Tower of Althalaxx to the northeast.
It is past time that he should have returned. I worry that he has encountered some unforeseen danger in the forest. I would be most appreciative if you would find him and see that he is doing well.
