Beyond the Dark Portal Walkthrough

Orc Campaign – You are to lead the armies of Orcs to reopen a rift between the worlds. First you must subjugate the Death Knights as they have knowledge of how to open the rift. Then you’ll need to recover powerful artifacts such as the Skull of Gul’dan and Eye of Dalaran. You’ll have powerful Dragons, Death Knights and Ogres to aid you in your quest. Should you succeed untold worlds will be yours for the taking.

Human Campaign – Lord Khadgar has sensed a dark power growing around what remains of the rift and believes the Orcs are attempting to break through to the world of Azeroth once more. He urges the Alliance to come together so the Orcs can be defeated. You’ll need to fortify your positions and hold firm as wave upon wave of Orcs seek overwhelm you. Should you triumph over the dark powers the rift between Azeroth and Draenor will be sealed forever.
