Before match

Illidan (present)
▶️Perhaps you have heard of my fate... I defended my people from a demonic invasion, only to be imprisoned for ten thousand years.
▶️But my story does not end there. It was Tyrande who freed me, pleading for my help. My heart leapt at the sound of her voice...
▶️However, my brother, my own flesh and blood, still shunned me as a villain.


▶️I'll show them all! Demons have no power over me. I repelled them once, I will do so again.
Prince Arthas
▶️Are you certain your will is truly your own?

Emote Response

Prince Arthas
▶️Fine words, demon hunter.

Hero Power

Prince Arthas
▶️You've never seen a blade like this!
▶️Strike for strike!
▶️Death is the greatest power.


Prince Arthas
▶️Everything you want is nearly within your grasp… Yet you hesitate.
▶️The darkness within me goes deeper than you could ever fathom.
▶️Demons march on your lands. Will you be a victim or a victor?

Turn 1

▶️You'll regret approaching me.
Prince Arthas
▶️I think you'll find that we're evenly matched.

Turn 2

▶️You reek of death.
Prince Arthas

Turn 4

▶️Corruption lingers in these forests...
Prince Arthas
▶️It is the work of Tichondrius. He bears an artifact of tremendous power, the Skull of Gul'dan.

Turn 6

▶️You only say this to tempt me to steal it... But why?
Prince Arthas
▶️The lord I serve would... benefit from your assistance.


▶️We could go on fighting like this forever. Still, I have no reason to believe you.
Prince Arthas
▶️My master has seen all. He knows the power you've sought your whole life. Seize it, and your enemies will be undone.


Prince Arthas
▶️You will have to do better than that to face the Legion, night elf.

Arthas Menethil, Crown Prince of Lordaeron and Knight of the Silver Hand, was the son of King Terenas Menethil II and heir to the throne. He was trained as a paladin by Cosmetics - PNG logo.pngUther Lightbringer and was inducted into the Order of the Silver Hand. Arthas also had a romantic relationship with the kind sorceress Cosmetics - PNG logo.pngJaina Proudmoore. Committed to the protection of his people, Arthas was determined to stop the plague spreading throughout Lordaeron.
Despite his promising beginnings, Arthas became one of the most powerful and evil beings Azeroth would ever know. Although he killed the necromancer NaxxramasKel'Thuzad, Arthas was unable to stop the spread of the plague and resorted to increasingly desperate methods, such as purging the city of Stratholme. Taking up the cursed runeblade Knights of the Frozen ThroneFrostmourne, Arthas was able to defeat the demon Goblins vs GnomesMal'Ganis, but he lost his soul in the process. Becoming a death knight of the Scourge, he led the undead in destroying Lordaeron, Quel'Thalas, and Dalaran. Arthas later made his way to the Frozen Throne of Icecrown and merged with Knights of the Frozen ThroneThe Lich King.
Kel'Thuzad's remains were badly decomposed and needed to be taken to the mystical Sunwell in Quel'Thalas to be revived. Tichondrius sent Arthas to recover a mystical urn, which could be used to transport Kel'Thuzad's remains. However, the urn was in the keeping of the Knights of the Silver Hand. Arthas killed two paladins, Ballador the Bright and Sage Truthbearer, who both condemned Arthas' betrayal. He then faced Cosmetics - PNG logo.pngUther Lightbringer, who explained that the urn held the ashes of his father, King Terenas. The two engaged in a duel with Uther initially having the upper hand, knocking Arthas down and sending Frostmourne flying from his hands. As Arthas awaited the killing blow, the sword seemed to find its own way into his hands and he was granted more power by the Lich King. The battle began to turn in Arthas' favor. Eventually, Uther, covered in blood from his wounds, fell to his knees and told Arthas he hoped there was a special place in hell waiting for him. Arthas replied that they may never know because he intended to live forever, then delivered the killing blow. He seized the urn and abandoned his father's remains, which suddenly swarmed on him with the wind, choking him and burning his eyes. Arthas had the remains of Kel'Thuzad placed within the urn, and then began the long journey to Quel'Thalas.
