Before match

Kurtrus' wife
▶️Sha'ha lor'ma...
▶️In my dreams... they are still alive.
Young Kurtrus
Kurtrus' wife
▶️Wake up, Kurtrus. Wake up!


▶️Ah! Where am I? Back on Azeroth.
▶️Begone, demon! This does not concern you.

Emote Response

▶️You face the shogun of Orgrimmar!

Hero Power

▶️Taste my blade!
▶️Meet your death!


▶️Without a hand to wield it, even the sharpest blade is worthless.
▶️True patience requires bearing the unbearable.
▶️I fight for the honor of my clan.

Turn 1

▶️Those orcs have that paladin surrounded.
▶️You are a long way from Stormwind, human.

Turn 2

Cariel Roame
▶️I will fight to my last breath. And know this — my comrades at Northwatch will avenge me!
▶️I hope they try.

Turn 4

▶️I will aid you, paladin. You are an enemy of the demon armies, are you not?
Cariel Roame
▶️Demon armies? I’m just on patrol out here.

Turn 6

▶️I am Kurtrus Ashfallen, wayward deserter of the Illidari, survivor of the Felwood, and hunter of demons...
▶️I have returned to Azeroth to stop Anetheron at any cost.
Cariel Roame
▶️Who in the Light's name is Anetheron?

Turn 7

▶️Anetheron... Nathrezim Dreadlord of the Burning Legion, emissary of Archimonde, and brother of Tichondrius.
▶️He destroyed... everything I hold dear.

Turn 8

▶️There is a warlock in the Barrens who seeks to bring Anetheron back to this realm. I must find and stop this warlock.
Cariel Roame
▶️I'm also looking for someone. If we get out of this alive, we should travel together — help each other.

First attack with Glaive

Cariel Roame
▶️You should get a real weapon.
▶️This will do.

Blade Dance

Cariel Roame
▶️You're pretty good.
▶️Your moves are also... effective.


▶️vFall back. Fall back! Keep our blades sharp for another fight.
Cariel Roame
▶️I am Cariel Roame of the Silver Hand, stationed at Northwatch. You have my thanks and my hammer. Lead on.


▶️Dying to a blademaster is a great honor!


Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Samuro is the last remaining blademaster to wear the banner of the Burning Blade. He is on a warrior's pilgrimage in search of vengeance and redemption for his fallen clan.
Samuro once lived in a village with his brethren. Unfortunately for him, a bloodthirsty wildkin known as Bloodbeak destroyed his village. With vengeance in mind, Samuro hunted Bloodbeak until he finally met with success. Bloodbeak was slain, and Samuro could pay attention to his newly assigned task of sabotaging a Kul Tiran base camp near the coast.
Samuro was successful in this as well by using stealth to place demolition charges near vital structures of the Kul Tiran base (likely Tiragarde Keep). With his mission accomplished, Rexxar, Rokhan, and Chen Stormstout could continue with a mission of their own, and Samuro was free to continue as he wished.
