Before match

Gul'dan (present)
▶️I was no stranger to suffering. Since my youth, I was burdened with the misplaced cruelty of my people.
▶️But months of deprivation brought me to the brink of death. Only then did I accept that I needed the safety of a clan.
▶️As the old shaman's words rang through my mind, I used the last of my strength to reach the Throne of the Elements.

Stage 1: Throne of the Elements[]


▶️Spirits of the natural world! I... offer myself... to your service.

▶️I... will do anything.
Gul'dan (present)
▶️I was true to my word. And in return, he gave me what he had promised...
Forgotten Warrior
▶️How dare you return here! You may never rejoin your people.
▶️My people? I have no people!

Emote Response

Forgotten Warrior
▶️Is that how you beg for mercy?

Hero Power

Forgotten Warrior
▶️Pathetic wretch!
▶️No one wants you here!


Forgotten Warrior
▶️Your own kin have turned against you.
▶️There is no future for you here.
▶️Our clan lives or dies based on who is the weakest. And I will not die for you.

▶️Thank you, shaman. I found my destiny.
Gul'dan kills Forgotten Clan Shaman
▶️Never again will I grovel before the world. Instead, the world will grovel before me!

After months of starvation and wandering alone through the wastes, Gul'dan began to consider that the safety of a clan might be better than endless suffering. He finally heeded the old shaman's words and, dragging himself to the Throne of the Elements, offered himself in the service of whatever would end his anguish. The spirits of fire, earth, water, and air approached him but, sensing the darkness and fury within the orc's heart, violently recoiled from him. However, in the absence of the furies, Kil'jaeden began to whisper to him. The demon lord offered Gul'dan power in return for becoming the harbinger of his fury.
Kil'jaeden needed a public figure to unite the orcs against the draenei, but Gul'dan could not inspire or lead his people by example. Kil'jaeden ordered him to ally with someone who could, but first he would need to eliminate everyone who knew of his past. Gul'dan returned to his village, draped in tattered robes. When the chieftain furiously reminded Gul'dan that he was never allowed to return to his people, Gul'dan roared that he had no people and obliterated the chieftain with fel energy. Gul'dan then went on a rampage, killing all of his former brethren. As the village burned, Gul'dan spotted the village shaman - the only source of any relative kindness in his life. Gul'dan earnestly thanked the shaman, saying that he had found his destiny, then killed him as well. Claiming the shaman's staff and a ring, Gul'dan left the burning ruins of his birthplace behind forever. Its name and existence would be lost to history - just as the vengeful Gul'dan preferred.
