Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Boss always has 1-2 mana minions in his starting hand and always draws Voidwalker on turn 1.
  • The player always draws the cards on first six turn in next order - Ray of Frost, Frostbolt, Flame Ward, Fireball, Blizzard, Frost Nova.
    • If any of these spells were got on mulligan, the player will draw a random card instead on respective turn. The spells above may be one of these randomly drawed cards which leads to another random draw on turns 1-6 accordingly.
  • Boss is programmed to give preference to playing cards for 5+ mana, despite that they are all weaker than two minions 6/6 from his hero power.
  • The battle ends with the player winning when Archimonde's health reaches 10 or less.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Before match

Jaina Proudmoore (present)
I was right. Destiny had brought us together just in time to face a mighty demon: Archimonde.
The night elves united with us as the demon moved to corrupt their World Tree.
This was our one chance to lay a trap for him... and ensure his destruction.

Introduction

Archimonde
The time for reckoning has come!
Jaina Proudmoore
Indeed. But the reckoning will be yours.

Emote Response

Archimonde
Pathetic mortal!

Hero Power

Archimonde
All creation will be devoured!
This world will burn!
Your resistance is insignificant!

Idle

Archimonde
All of your efforts have been in vain.
Mourn the passing of all you have ever known.
You are nothing in the face of my power.

Turn 2

Archimonde
You are very brave to stand against me.
If only your countrymen had been as bold, I would have had more fun scouring you from the world!
Jaina Proudmoore
Is talking all you demons do?

Turn 4

Archimonde
If I'd known that this mortal resistance would be so weak, I would have launched this invasion centuries ago!
Jaina Proudmoore
Hm, he doesn't suspect anything.

Everything we hoped for came true. Archimonde didn't see the trap until it was too late.

Our spirit is stronger than he ever knew.
Archimonde
(roar)

Defeat

Archimonde
Soon the heart of your world will beat no more...

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Archimonde was one of the three leaders of the eredar, ruling his people on Argus alongside Kil'jaeden and Velen in peace and harmony. He eagerly joined the fallen titan Sargeras who promised them knowledge, power and, most importantly, the answer to the question "what is the one underlying flaw of the universe?", in exchange for loyalty. While most eredar, a knowledge-seeking race, joined the Burning Crusade because of their thirst for knowledge, Archimonde joined Sargeras for power.
He loyally served his master and the Burning Legion for thousands of years, though he was defeated during the Third War by the mortal armies. Sargeras' right hand, he was heartless, brutal, cunning and far sighted. The colossal demon wielded limitless fel magics and primal strength to lay waste to any who would oppose his fiery will, and had destroyed countless worlds. In his heart of hearts, he sought to become a god and wield powers that rivaled those of Sargeras himself. He was described as powerful, elegant, smooth, and intelligent.
