 Chapter Introduction
Early the next morning at Arthas' new base camp…
 Mission Objectives
- Main Quest - Burn the Boats
- Destroy the five ships
- The timer must not reach 0:00
You start the mission with Arthas, Muradin and two Mortar Teams. Follow the path west and you'll encounter six Ghouls. Kill them and continue to two more Ghouls, a Crypt Fiend, a Necromancer and a Spirit Tower. Note that in this chapter, Necromancer have Necromancer Master Training, making them a priority to kill. Use Arthas and Muradin to kill them quickly, since the Necromancers may Cripple your Mortar Teams, making the time limit harder to beat. The Necromancer drops a Potion of Mana. Continue along until you reach a Mercenary Camp where you can hire Ice Trolls, Ice Troll Priests and Ogre Warriors. This guide suggests hiring as many as gold allows. Note that while you don't control the Peasants, you still get the gathered resources. Continue until the road forks.
If time allows, choose the high road and continue west at the second fork. At the end there's two Skeleton Archers and a Skeletal Marksman. The Marksman drops a Goblin Night Scope. Return to where the road forked.
Choose the low road to encounter an oblong group of Undead enemies. In total there are six Ghouls, three Crypt Fiends, three Spirit Towers and a harmless Ziggurat. On hard, there are also two Necromancers, one on each end, it's recommended to kill them quickly. One of the Crypt Fiends drops a Ring of Regeneration. The first Ship is just beyond this group.
Contine the path, and meet two Spiderlings and a Nerubian Warrior. The Warrior drops a Potion of Healing. Continue unto a Spiderling, a Nerubian Webspinner, a Nerubian Seer and a Nerubian Queen. On hard there's also a Nerubian Warrior and a Nerubian Spider Lord. The Seer drops a Potion of Greater Mana, while the Queen drops Claws of Attack +12. The second Ship is just beyond this group.
Continue on to another Mercenary Camp. Here you can hire Ice Troll Berserkers and Ogre Magi. Just beyond the Mercenary Camp there are a several pockets of hiding Murlocs. On easy and normal difficulties there are four Murloc Tiderunners, two Murloc Huntsmen and three Murloc Nightcrawlers. On hard difficulty there are four of each of the three types. On all difficulties, one of the Nightcrawlers drop a Mana Stone. Continue until the path to the next Ship is blocked by trees. If the Mortar Teams are still alive, have them attack the trees to clear a path. If they aren't, go up the ramp and to the north-east. You can hire Goblin Sappers at the Goblin Laboratory to Kaboom! the trees (and themselves) for you.
If time allows, go up the ramp to the Goblin Laboratory and break through the trees to the south-west. Beyond the trees resides a Frost Revenant that drops a Sobi Mask.
Once the path has been cleared for trees, destroy the third Ship.
Continue on to the north-east, but notice the narrow way that takes off to the north-west. Send either Arthas and Muradin to the Mercenary Camp there and hire Ice Troll Trappers, Ice Troll High Priests and Ogre Maulers. Bring back your new mercenaries and continue north-east unto two Blue Dragon Whelps and two Blue Drakes. The Trappers' Ensnare is useful here, as is the Trolls' ability to hit flying units. One of the Drakes drop a Potion of Greater Healing.
If time allows, destroy the trees east of the Drakes. Behind them is a Pandaren that drops a Pendant of Mana.
Continue on until you get a cinematic showcasing a gauntlet of eight Spirit Towers. A Goblin Merchant is nearby, conveniently selling Amulets of Recall. Have Arthas run the gauntlet with Divine Shield and use the Amulet to Recall everyone else. Alternatively, run everyone through the gauntlet at once, since the Spirit Towers won't be able to kill everyone. Another alternative, which is slower, is to use Muradin as bait and the Mortar Teams to destroy the Spirit Towers one by one. The Mortar Teams will miss quite a few shots when shooting uphill, but they can always target a Spirit Tower while it's firing at Muradin. Regardless, the fourth Ship is situated at the end of the gauntlet.
The path leading away from the gauntlet leads to three Graveyards, each guarded by two Necromancers. On hard, they're also guarded by two Skeleton Warriors each, but it's likely that the Necromancers will summon Skeleton Warriors on all difficulties. Beyond the Graveyards lies the final battle, four Ghouls, two Crypt Fiends, two Necromancers, three on hard and two Abominations, three on hard. If you're pressed for time, rush past them and destroy the fifth and final Ship.
