Before match

Malfurion (present)
▶️In the chaos of Archimonde's war, Tyrande chose to free Illidan, hoping he would help us against the demons.
▶️Instead, he continued his dangerous pursuit of power, becoming ever more corrupted. Reluctantly, I banished him.
▶️Maiev went to recapture him, but soon called to us desperately for reinforcements.


▶️Brother! What are you doing here?
▶️I've come to stop you, Illidan. Again.

Emote Response

▶️I cannot trust anything you say.

Hero Power

▶️I do not fear you.
▶️Hardly a challenge!
▶️My fate is my own!


▶️Still you refuse to see me for what I truly am.
▶️Ten thousand years in darkness… only to fight with you again!
▶️I will take more care with my alliances from now on.

Turn 1

Maiev Shadowsong
▶️Tyrande, I'm surprised you came. Are you here to absolve your guilty conscience?
Priestess Tyrande
▶️I did what I had to do, Maiev. You are in no position to judge me.

Turn 2

▶️Tyrande! This battle does not concern you.
Priestess Tyrande
▶️I was wrong to set you free, Illidan. You've become a monster.
▶️Monster? Is that what you think of me? I have always... cared about you, Tyrande.
▶️I sought only to prove my worthiness - my power!

Turn 3

▶️Soon you - and the whole world - will understand just what I'm capable of!


▶️I was lenient with you before, but no longer!
▶️I have sworn allegiance to a new master, brother. I have a great task to perform in his service.
▶️I'm sorry, but I cannot allow you to stand in my way.


▶️How many times must we fight to the end before you are satisfied?

Illidan Stormrage is the first of the demon hunters, the former self-proclaimed Lord of Outland, former ruler of the Black Temple, and the original leader of the Illidari. He is the twin brother of Malfurion Stormrage and was, like his sibling, in love with Tyrande Whisperwind. Though born a night elf and renowned as a powerful sorcerer, Illidan officially betrayed his people as he temporarily sided with the demonic Burning Legion during the War of the Ancients, though his reasons for doing so were noble as he secretly aimed to repel the Legion's invasion. Due to this betrayal, as well as having secretly created a second Well of Eternity after the first one was destroyed at the end of the war, he was dubbed "the Betrayer" and imprisoned in the Barrow Deeps below Mount Hyjal. There, Illidan remained for over 10,000 years, watched over by the warden Maiev Shadowsong and her Watchers.
