Dialogue[]

Before match

Gul'dan (present)
▶️My dark master had many plans. At his bidding, I corrupted the Throne of the Elements and spread a pox across the land.
▶️The orcs grew desperate and easy to manipulate. Hiding my true power, I sought out the shaman of the esteemed Shadowmoon Clan.

Introduction

Ner'zhul
▶️What brings you here, stranger?
Gul'dan
▶️Word has spread of your power, Chieftain. I wish to witness it.
Ner'zhul
▶️Very well.

Emote Response

Ner'zhul
▶️You are an interesting one.

Hero Power

Ner'zhul
▶️Elements, answer me!
▶️Glory to Shadowmoon!
▶️Spirits of nature, bend to my will!

Idle

Ner'zhul
▶️The Shadowmoon Clan is revered by all, and I mean to keep that legacy.
▶️Thanks to the red pox, many clans have sent their sick warriors to a village to recover.
▶️The ancestors have been so quiet of late. It worries me.

Turn 1

Ner'zhul
▶️What clan do you hail from?
Gul'dan
▶️Alas, it was destroyed... by ogres.

Turn 2

Ner'zhul
▶️I am sorry for your loss. You have not been accepted by another clan?
Gul'dan
▶️No. It has proven... difficult.

Turn 4

Ner'zhul
▶️You could be an impressive shaman. Why has no one seen that?
Gul'dan
▶️Perhaps they lack your wisdom, great chieftain.

Turn 6

Ner'zhul
▶️I know the pain you must feel...
Gul'dan
▶️Do you?
Ner'zhul
▶️I lost my beloved Rulkan. Every day I miss her.
Gul'dan
▶️Ah, yes. The grief is indeed a burden.

Teron'gor

Gul'dan
▶️You have excellent shaman here.
Ner'zhul
▶️Yes, Teron'gor is among our finest.
Gul'dan
▶️How interesting.

Death

Gul'dan
▶️If I have at all impressed you, allow me to learn more.
Ner'zhul
▶️The Shadowmoon Clan is slow to trust outsiders, and yet...
Gul'dan
▶️We have both lost much. And the orcs stand to lose even more with the elements in chaos and the red pox spreading.
Ner'zhul
▶️These are trying times, Gul'dan. You may stay.

Defeat

Ner'zhul
▶️Outsiders like you are a rare sight in these lands. Few last long on their own.

Lore[]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Ner'zhul was the chieftain and elder shaman of the Shadowmoon clan as well as the Warchief of the Horde of Draenor, the clans of Draenor that remained uncaptured after the Dark Portal was destroyed in Azeroth. He was tricked into making a Blood Pact with Kil'jaeden the Deceiver; one that bound the orcs into the service of the Burning Legion. Following the Second War, he opened several portals on Draenor in an attempt to seek out new lands to escape to and conquer but was immediately captured by Kil'jaeden. His mortal form was destroyed and his spirit was transformed into the spectral Lich King, which was then encased in the mystical ice of the Frozen Throne atop the Icecrown glacier in distant Northrend.
Eventually, Kil'jaeden instructed his agent, Gul'dan, to find a suitable leader for the Horde that would be, and Gul'dan decided on Ner'zhul due to the respect and admiration he demanded from all the orcs, seeing him to be the perfect person for such a role. Gul'dan arrived at Shadowmoon Valley, telling a false tale of how his village was destroyed by ogres (it was, in fact, Gul'dan himself who did that) to gain the sympathy and pity of the Shadowmoon clan. He succeeded, and Ner'zhul took him under his wing as his apprentice.
