  • Boss starts with 1 Mana Crystal instead of 0.
  • At Start of Game Sklibb, Demon Hunter, Karnuk, Demon Hunter and Shalja, Demon Hunter are shuffled into the player's deck.
  • The player can win by either killing Illidan Stormrage or survive until the start of Illidan's turn 10.
  • At Illidan's turn 10 before the player's victory he turns into Demonic Illidan and his Health is set to 100. If Illidan is defeated by the player before the start of turn 10, his Health is set to 30.


Fueled by hate for the Rusted Legion, Illidan seeks annihilation. For all under the tyrant's command and even the wailing souls of Outland. Only she can stop his rampage, save them all from his unyielding rage. Aranna has come a very long way, from being lost and led astray. Banding outcasts together as one, saving a world from being outrun. It pains her so to come to this, but she must cut away his hubris.

Impossible to rush: Health is too high. Focus instead to survive. Control the board, withstand his attacks. Try and keep your health intact. Build your board, make good trades. But do beware of his Burning Rage. It's very important that you heal, lest Illidan gains lethal. Keep your health above 8, and the rest? It's your fate. Enough of rhymes- they're getting plain... Survive 10 turns and win this game!


Before match

Aranna, Unleashed
Shan'do, teacher, I've heard your call. But blind you are, blind to your fall.


Illidan Stormrage
I've taught you well, my wisdom shared. Still you fight me - are you prepared?!
Aranna, Unleashed
Shan'do, please listen, I beseech! This final lesson, mine to teach...

Emote Response

Illidan Stormrage
Fight, Aranna! We'll settle this with blades!

Turn 1

Illidan Stormrage
I'll meet your challenge, blow-by-blow. I taught you every move you know.
Aranna, Unleashed
And sister taught me: Thick and Thin, A Starseeker must NOT give in!

Turns 2-8

Illidan Stormrage
These rusted scum still bark and crawl! We must destroy them, crush them all!
Aranna, Unleashed
Without Jaraxxus, they are free! We must protect, or leave them be...
Illidan Stormrage
No half measures! No shades of grey! This is the demon hunter way.
Aranna, Unleashed
Ours is the power, but be just- Some are half demon... just like us!
Illidan Stormrage
You hold me back, you're soft and slow. Just like Tyrande long ago.
Aranna, Unleashed
You rage and boast your scars amassed... Live your life NOW, not in the past!
Illidan Stormrage
I'll use the power my suff'ring bought, else all my pain has been for naught.


Aranna, Unleashed
If all you hold is hatred dear, the pain you feel lasts year on year...
What's diff'rent 'tween your slashing blades, Jaraxxus and his cruel crusade? (Illidan Stormrage becomes Demonic Illidan)
Demonic Illidan
Silence, student! My role is clear! I'll live this pain – yes, 'year on year!'
Who am I? I am Legion's end! Who are you!? A nuisance -
Aranna, Unleashed
Your friend.
If all you see is what broke you, you're blind to hope, and worlds anew.
Demonic Illidan
Ten thousand years I cursed my fate. Now I see... a life without hate.
(Illidan Stormrage is defeated)


Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
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.
