Strategy[]

Because of the many secrets he uses, one viable strategy is to use Rise of ShadowsArchmage Kalec (after another minion if he have a minion) to lower his health with LegacyPyroblast and to use The Boomsday ProjectLuna's Pocket Galaxy very soon. This wont work for long, but will make your life easier for the rest of the boss fight and this strategy. Your goal is to kill all his minions as fast as you can, and LegacyCounterspell as much secrets as you can at the end. When he uses Aluneth, your goal will be to play Arcane Giant and Violet Warden, so he can't deal damage to your hero while he tries to kill them. Because of the great damage the two mentioned minions do above, he will not use durability of this staff, wich will lead him to get to many cards. Resulting to this, he will in a few turns be out of cards (because most drawn has been burned) and take a lot of damage (first turn 10 damage, second 26 damage and third 42 damage) Like that you'll be able to get rid of him in less than 3 turns, not including damage done before or with Rise of ShadowsArchmage Kalec.

Dialogue[]

Before match

Jaina Proudmoore (present)
Kalec stayed my hand that day, however, it was only a matter of time until the Horde betrayed me again.
I became the leader of the Kirin Tor, and, as such, was authorized to expel them from the city of Dalaran. Permanently.

Introduction

Jaina Proudmoore
You've betrayed the Kirin Tor, Sunreaver. Your kind is no longer welcome here.
Aethas Sunreaver
This is OUR city too, Proudmoore.

Emote Response

Aethas Sunreaver
What do you mean?

Hero Power

Aethas Sunreaver
Anar'alah belore!
Diel fin'al!
Time to light a fire!

Idle

Aethas Sunreaver
I don't know who turned on you, but it wasn't me.
Please come to your senses, Archmage!
The Sunreavers have always served the Kirin Tor honorably.

Turn 1

Jaina Proudmoore
Hah! I see. I will remove you by force, then.

Turn 2

Aethas Sunreaver
You are mad.
Jaina Proudmoore
No, I have finally accepted the truth.

Turn 4

Aethas Sunreaver
The Kirin Tor is beyond the Alliance or Horde.
Jaina Proudmoore
Not when you stab me in the back!

Turn 5

Jaina Proudmoore
You aided Garrosh, and I will never forgive you for that.
Aethas Sunreaver
Honestly, I don't even know what you're talking about.

Death

Aethas Sunreaver
(yell)

Defeat

Aethas Sunreaver
I suppose now I have betrayed you... unfortunately.

Completion

Jaina Proudmoore (present)
At last, I was free of the Horde and the burden of supporting an impossible peace.
There were times I still dreamed of the ideals I held in the past, but that time has gone forever.
Now I have changed into the person the world needs me to be—one who leads with conviction, not appeasement—in the face of endless war.

Lore[]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Archmage Aethas Sunreaver is the leader of the Sunreavers, a group of sin'dorei magi who sought the readmission of their people into the Kirin Tor. Aethas, despite his youthful age, quickly carved out a high rank in the Kirin Tor, eventually serving on its Council of Six. A heavy proponent of neutrality, Aethas worked hard to repair and uphold the millennia-old alliance between Silvermoon and Dalaran, though his eternal optimism and enthusiasm were tested when the Horde, now under Garrosh Hellscream's rule, began attacking the Alliance after the Cataclysm.
Some time after Cosmetics - PNG logo.pngJaina Proudmoore came into power, Aethas and his people were expelled from the Kirin Tor, though Aethas' refusal to abandon Dalaran led to his faction's incarceration within the city instead. Grand Magister Rommath saved many of them from this fate, Aethas included, and Aethas pledged the service of both himself and the Sunreavers to Quel'Thalas once more. Aethas eventually sought out Felo'melorn, high blade of the Sunstrider dynasty, and with the help of his friend Archmage Modera was able to rejoin the Kirin Tor.
