TranscriptEdit

  • IconSmall Dreadlord Detheroc: "It's been months since we last heard from Lord Archimonde. I grow tired of watching over these rotting undead! What are we still doing here?"
  • IconSmall Dreadlord Balnazzar: "We were charged with overseeing this land, Detheroc. It is our duty to remain here and ensure that the Scourge is ready for action."
  • IconSmall Varimathras Varimathras: "True. Though we should have received some kind of orders by now."
  • IconSmall Sylvanas Sylvanas Windrunner: "The Legion was defeated months ago. How could they not know?."
  • IconSmall Lich Male Kel'Thuzad: "Impossible to say. But the longer they remain in command, the more they run the Scourge into the ground."
  • IconSmall Sylvanas Sylvanas Windrunner: "What? Who could possibly..."
  • IconSmall ArthasDK King Arthas: "Greetings, dreadlords. I should thank you for looking after my kingdom during my absence. However, I won't be requiring your services any longer."
  • IconSmall Varimathras Varimathras: "Prince Arthas!"
  • IconSmall Dreadlord Balnazzar: "This land is ours. The Scourge belongs to the Legion!"
  • IconSmall ArthasDK King Arthas: "Not anymore, demon. Your masters have been defeated. The Legion is undone. Your deaths will complete the circle."
  • IconSmall Dreadlord Detheroc: "Never!"
  • IconSmall Dreadlord Detheroc: "This isn't over, human."
  • IconSmall Lich Male Kel'Thuzad: "We knew you would return to us, Prince Arthas."
  • IconSmall ArthasDK King Arthas: "I have returned, lich, but you will now address me as King. This is, after all, my land."
  • IconSmall ArthasDK King Arthas: "Now, we must secure the kingdom by scouring the last remnants of humanity from it!"
  • IconSmall Lich Male Kel'Thuzad: "But, my king, the humans have begun to abandon their villages."
  • IconSmall Lich Male Kel'Thuzad: "They're fleeing to the canyon passes! If they escape into the mountains, it will be impossible to hunt them all down."
  • IconSmall ArthasDK King Arthas: "Then we must slaughter them before they escape! Their deaths will be a fitting tribute to Ner'zhul!"

  • IconSmall ArthasDK King Arthas: "Aarrghh... The pain is unbearable. What is happening to me?"
  • IconSmall LichKing Lich King: "Danger draws near! Power is fading. Time is running out!"
  • IconSmall Lich Male Kel'Thuzad: "King Arthas, do you need assistance?"
  • IconSmall ArthasDK King Arthas: "No. The pain has passed, but my powers are diminished. Something is terribly wrong here."
  • IconSmall Lich Male Kel'Thuzad: "Shall we recall our forces?"
  • IconSmall ArthasDK King Arthas: "No. I will finish the hunt. We'll solve this mystery once our business is done."
Paladins.
  • IconSmall Human Male Halahk the Lifebringer: "Arthas, you wear your father's crown as if you earned it. You may kill me, but my brethren will never stop hounding you!"
  • IconSmall ArthasDK King Arthas: "I can't believe that any of you survived the first purge. No matter. After today, your self-righteous order will cease to exist."

  • IconSmall LichKing Lich King: "It is I, the Lich King. Danger draws near the Frozen Throne! You must return to Northrend immediately! Obey!"

TriviaEdit

  • If the cheat code to see the entire map is used, you can see the Frozen Throne and Lich King just to the south of Little Timmy. The Lich King appears there because he has to be present on the map in order to be seen in the cinematic.
