Notes[edit | edit source]

  • For some reason boss uses a hero power before playing the minions thus often losing its effect.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Before match

Jaina Proudmoore (present)
I couldn't tell Kael'thas that there was another prince I loved - Arthas. We'd just reunited when a plague broke out across the lands of Lordaeron.
We worked together to investigate. But the further we went, the clearer it became that I was losing him.

Introduction

Jaina Proudmoore
I'm worried about you, Arthas. You haven't been yourself lately.
Prince Arthas
Don't you think I have enough on my mind without your accusations?!

Emote Response

Prince Arthas
That won't work on me this time.

Hero Power

Prince Arthas
I'm under a lot of pressure!
No one understands!
Try to see it my way.

Idle

Prince Arthas
I hate arguing like this.
This plague is the worst thing I've ever seen. Lordaeron is on the verge of ruin.
We have to get along, Jaina. Our future together depends on it.

Turn 1

Jaina Proudmoore
I'm not accusing you of anything! There's no need to attack me.
Prince Arthas
You started this. We'll settle it by sparring.

Turn 3

Jaina Proudmoore
You're a man of faith. You don't have to hate the enemy so fiercely...
Prince Arthas
You sound like Uther.

Turn 4

Jaina Proudmoore
Uther cares about you... so do I.

Turn 5

Prince Arthas
I will fight for my kingdom. People expect that from me.
Jaina Proudmoore
I know. But this plague might not be something you can resolve with force.

Death

Prince Arthas
I'm sorry. When this is all over, everything will be fine again. I promise.
Jaina Proudmoore
If you say so.

Defeat

Prince Arthas
Part of me knows you're right… I just don't know what else to do.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

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 the 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.
Ruling as the Lich King for years afterward, Arthas had the last remnants of his humanity destroyed and was ultimately defeated in combat by Highlord Tirion Fordring and his champions of the Light. Cradled by the spirit of his father, Arthas Menethil died, leaving the mantle of the Lich King to be taken by a noble soul who would contain the power of the Scourge.
