Duke Maxen's return after captivity in Blackrock Mountain was celebrated throughout the Kingdom. The Lich King had fallen, but many Scourge outposts remained--and many enterprising necromancers were eager to take advantage of the disarray. The first regiment was tasked with purging Zul’Drak of the remaining undead. While deep in the Frost Troll capital, the regiment engaged the Cult of Ner'zhul in their floating citadel. The Cult of Ner’zhul was soundly defeated, but an offensive by the Drakkari trolls brought the campaign to an early close.
