The rugged terrain of the Hinterlands is not only home to the Wildhammer dwarves and their gryphons, but also to a number of forest troll tribes.
The trolls view the Wildhammers as squatters on their ancestral lands and spare no opportunity to accost the dwarves by attacking the gryphon aeries. One way to prove ourselves in the eyes of the Wildhammer is to help staunch these attacks by killing a Witherbark leader, Witch Doctor Mai'jin, who shelters in a cave at Bogen's Ledge, to the west of Shadra'Alor.
Well done, <name>. The Wildhammers will be heartened to know that they don't stand against the Witherbark trolls alone. Showing them that the Alliance can prove a reliable partner in protecting the gryphons should lend more weight to our proposition.
