As you might have noticed from my Twitter the hashtag for our Warrior Week is taken so we decided to use #AltsWarriorWeek instead.
But for this week I’ve again chosen some of the famous Warriors from WoW’s lore.
He is the former Lord of Outland, a pit lord who conquered the ruinds of the orcish homeworld following its destruction.
His reign was ended by the arrival of Illidan Stormrage, who took his throne at the Black Temple for himself. Deciding that Magtheridon would have a further part to play, Illidan had Magtheridon’s body dragged to the Hellfire Citadel where he imprisoned the pit lord.
“Illidan is an arrogant fool! I will crush him and reclaim Outland as my own!”
The Ravencrest clan was a noble one, but it was not of the Highborne caste. On the contrary, Kur’talos, like most of the night elf populace, regarded the Hghborne with suspicion and dislike. He was levelheaded man, a skilled warrior, and an inspiring leader on the battlefield. It was a matter of both honor and practicality for him to fight alongside his soldiers, his presence inspired others to greater feats of courage and skill. Even so, Kur’talos had many of the ancient night elves’ prejudices against other races.
In the altered history of the War of the Ancients – which was created when Rhonin, Krasus and Broxigar were huled backward in time and changed past events by their presence – Ravencrest became the formal patron of Illidan Stormrage after recruiting Illidan to help him track down Broxigar. Kur’talos was deeply loyal to Queen of Azshara and could not believe she had been involved in the Burning Legiond’s arrival on Azeroth. Indeed, he led the night elf forces against the demons into battle time and again, shouting queen’s name as rallying cry.
was the Warchief of the Fel Horde and Chieftain of the Shattered Hand Clan. He earned the sobriquet “Bladefist” after he cut off his own hand when he reached the station of grunt, replacing it with a deadly scythe.
The outpost of Kargath in the Badlands was named in his honor. In addition, the shore south of Orgrimmar has been dubbed Bladefist Bay, and the headquarters of the Warsong Logging Camp in Ashenvale is known as Kargathia Keep.
He was the Chief og the united tribes of the Tauren, chieftain of the Bloodhoof, and leader of Thunder Bluff. Allying with the Horde upon its arrival on the shores of Kalimdor, Cairne stood as one of its wisest and most venerated leaders. He wielded the shamanblessed Bloodhoof Runespear.
Shocked at the rumors that the new Warchief slaughtered innocent druids, Cairne challenged Garrosh Hellscream to an honorable duel in the arena of Orgrimmar. Prior to the battle, Magatha Grimtotem offered to bless Garrosh’s weapon, Gorehowl. However, unknown to Garrosh, Magatha secretly poisoned the weapon with a potent toxin. During the course of the fight, Cairne appeared to have the upper hand until his ancient Bloodhoof Runespear is shattered by Gorehowl. Garrosh attacked again, cutting Cairne along the duration of his chest. As Cairne began to retaliate, the poison from Gorehowl sank into his blood, weakening him. As he died from the poison he realized Magatha’s betrayal, his final thought “And so, I, who have lived my whole life with honor, die betrayed”. R.I.P my friend <3
