Notes[]

  • This is a two-stage battle. At the first stage the player has to lower Akama's health to 15 or less; at the second stage - to survive for 4 enemy turns.
  • The player always gets Eye Beam, Parasitic Shadowfiend, Spectral Sight on mulligan.
    • These cards can be replaced with Stolen Vengeance, Acrobatics, Skull of Gul'dan. The replacement takes place from left to right (i.e., if the player replaced one card, they will receive Stolen Vengeance regardless of whether Eye Beam or Spectral Sight was replaced).
  • The player always draws the cards in next order at first nine turns:
  • When Akama's healith is 15 or less, the second phase of the battle begins. After that:
    • Akama is replaced by Maiev Shadowsong.
    • Nightblade and four Huntresses appear on the board
    • Maiev Shadowsong gets a new deck of 30 cards and draws the cards.
      • If the first stage has ended with Akama at 1-15 health, Maiev will draw so cards that their quantity in hand will be equal to 9.
      • If Akama's health was 0 or below, Maiev will draw 4 cards.
    • All minions' triggers are queuing and resolving.

Dialogue[]

Before match

Illidan (present)
▶️Arthas became the new Lich King, absorbing power even I could not surpass. I returned to Outland, taking up residence in the Black Temple.
▶️I expected Kil'jaeden to again confront me, and I raised a brutal army to meet him. Perhaps... I went a little too far in the eyes of my former allies.

Stage 1: Akama[]

Introduction

Illidan
▶️Akama! Your duplicity is hardly surprising.
▶️I should have slaughtered you and your malformed brethren long ago.

Emote Response

Akama
▶️You are no 'lord' of mine.

Hero Power

Akama
▶️Feel the pain you have wrought!
▶️Suffer, Betrayer!
▶️We've endured enough!

Idle

Akama
▶️Mine is a broken world and a broken race... but I have not lost hope.
▶️Long have I silently schemed to overthrow you!
▶️You have become no better than the demons you claim to resist.

Turn 1

Akama
▶️We've come to end your reign, Illidan. All of Outland shall be free!
Illidan
▶️Boldly said. But I remain… unconvinced.

Turn 3

Akama
▶️We strike now!
Illidan
▶️I will not be touched by rabble such as you!

Turn 4

Akama
▶️The Betrayer must fall!
Illidan
▶️You are calling me the Betrayer? That's rich.

Defeat

Akama
▶️The Light will bless these dismal halls once again... I swear it.

Stage 2: Maiev Shadowsong[]

Akama is killed

Illidan
▶️Is this it, Akama? Is this all the fury you can muster?
Maiev Shadowsong
▶️Their fury pales before mine, Illidan.
Akama is replaced by Maiev Shadowsong
Nightblade and four Huntresses appear on the board
Illidan
▶️Maiev... How is it even possible? I defeated you long ago.
Maiev Shadowsong
▶️I told you... to the ends of the earth. And I meant it.

Emote Response

Maiev Shadowsong
▶️I wish the demons had taken your tongue instead of your eyes.

Idle

Maiev Shadowsong
▶️Centuries in a cell are nothing compared to your treachery.
▶️Your brother Malfurion has always been too soft on you.
▶️How long can you avoid your responsibilities to your homeland? Your people?

Death

Maiev Shadowsong
▶️It is finished. You are beaten.
Illidan
▶️You have won... but the huntress is nothing without the hunt. You are nothing without me.
Illidan (present)
▶️I believed it was over... that my long and miserable journey had met a swift and vengeful end.
▶️But no. As often as I have been misunderstood, so did I misunderstand the number of chances I would get... the endless hidden tricks of fate.
▶️I did my best to play them well, to overcome my many flaws, and to remember... there is always more to the story.

Defeat

Maiev Shadowsong
▶️It is finally over. My watch can end.

Lore[]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
The elder sage Akama is the leader of both the Ashtongue tribe and the elite of said tribe, the Ashtongue Deathsworn, a faction of Broken draenei supposedly in the service of Illidan Stormrage. Offered a chance at revenge against the orcs who decimated his people, Akama allied himself with the night elf/demon hybrid and aided in the overthrow of Magtheridon, only to later find that Illidan was no better than the pit lord. To all outward appearances, Akama remained a loyal servant of Illidan and led his Ashtongue Deathsworn in his service — but away from his prying eyes, Akama sought to end Illidan's reign.
Allying with Maiev Shadowsong, whom he had been charged with keeping imprisoned, Akama rallied a group of adventurers to enter the Black Temple, leading up to the final battle with Illidan himself — the battle that ended the Betrayer's life. With Illidan gone, Akama hopes that the Holy Light will fill the dismal halls of the Temple once more...
