Before match

Uther Lightbringer (present)
From that day forward, a darkness came over Arthas that could not be lifted. He turned against his own father, King Terenas.
At that moment, I realized my worst enemy was the small lad I had raised to follow the Light. But still, my faith held.


Uther Lightbringer
Your father ruled this land for seventy years, and you've ground it to dust in a matter of days.
Prince Arthas
Very dramatic, Uther. I'll make sure you die quickly.

Emote Response

Prince Arthas
Haven't we talked enough?!

Hero Power

Prince Arthas
Frostmourne hungers...
You will know endless torment.


Prince Arthas
I will shake the very foundations of the world.
You should have obeyed me.
You were right, Uther. I am vile… even more vile than the orcs.

Boss' turn 1

Prince Arthas
None can stand between us and our fate...

Turn 3

Uther Lightbringer
I would have done anything for you. Given my life, even.
Prince Arthas
You still might...

Turn 7

Uther Lightbringer
What could have changed you so?!
Prince Arthas
Perhaps you're a bad teacher.

Death - end of boss' turn 12

Prince Arthas kills the player's minions and removes the cards in hand
Uther Lightbringer
I dearly hope that there's a special place in hell waiting for you.
Prince Arthas
We may never know. I intend to live forever.
Prince Arthas kills Uther with Frostmourne
Uther Lightbringer (present)
You may think this was a defeat. But when I closed my eyes, there was only Light.
I remembered everything I fought for... everyone I had loved and pledged loyalty to.
And I knew I had lived up to my charge - to fight in the name of faith. I was blessed to do so.


Prince Arthas
Strange, I thought I would feel something at a moment like this.

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 Uther Lightbringer and was inducted into the Order of the Silver Hand. Arthas also had a romantic relationship with the kind sorceress Jaina 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 Kel'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 Frostmourne, Arthas was able to defeat the demon Mal'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 The 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 Uther 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.
