Dialogue[]

Before match

Illidan (present)
▶️The thrill of victory was short-lived. Kil'jaeden caught up with me and demanded to know why I had been growing my forces.
▶️I had to quickly fabricate a tale that I had built the army to defeat the Lich King for him. Being a fool, he bought it.
▶️I left Outland under Akama's watch, and returned to Azeroth, journeying far to the frozen north...

Introduction

Illidan
▶️Hello again, Arthas.
Arthas
▶️You look different, Illidan. I guess the Skull of Gul'dan didn't agree with you.
▶️Anub'arak! See that my work is not disturbed.
Anub'arak
▶️Yes, master.

Emote Response

Anub'arak
▶️All is futile.

Hero Power

Anub'arak
▶️I feed upon your anguish.
▶️Feel the venom of Nerub!
▶️Oblivion awaits!

Idle

Anub'arak
▶️Even in death, battle brings glory!
▶️Arthas has come a very long way. You are no match for him now.
▶️The secrets of Northrend weave endless poisoned webs.

Turn 1

Illidan
▶️Arthas is keeping strange company these days.
Kael'thas Sunstrider
▶️So are you.

Turn 2

Anub'arak
▶️I am the ancient king of Azjol-Nerub, now enthralled to the Lich King.
Illidan
▶️Well, I can certainly understand his desperate need for allies.

Turn 3

Illidan
▶️You're out of your league, old king. You should have stayed hidden underground.

Turn 5

Illidan
▶️I have power of my own. I nearly destroyed the Lich King before, and now I shall finish the task!
Anub'arak
▶️You forget one thing.
Illidan
▶️What is that?
Anub'arak
▶️Arthas.

Death

Anub'arak
▶️Aaagh!
Arthas
▶️Time's running out! I will deal with him myself.
Illidan
▶️Let us finish what we started!

Defeat

Anub'arak
▶️Defeat only brings you closer to us.

Lore[]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Anub'arak was the last king of the nerubian empire of Azjol-Nerub. He was among the nerubians slaughtered in the War of the Spider and later raised by Ner'zhul the Lich King as an undead crypt lord to do his bidding. When the Lich King began losing his powers, Anub'arak assisted Arthas Menethil in reaching Icecrown before Illidan Stormrage's forces. For years, the undead nerubian continued carrying out his master's will in the ruins of his former kingdom until he was slain by adventurers. He was later raised once more and relocated to the caverns below Icecrown to plague the Argent Tournament, but the so-called traitor king met his final end at the hands of adventurers partaking in the tournament.
