The nefarious Kel'Thuzad awaits at the apex of the soul river, allowing the lich to draw upon an unlimited well of power. All his countless schemes and machinations have led to this final confrontation, where he has plotted the mortal champions' ultimate demise in service of his true master.
On Mythic difficulty, Kel'Thuzad starts with two stacks of Necrotic Surge.
I did more damage dead that alive for real for kt we 2 hit eye ez after 😌😝🤘
I hope we'll see more of KT in the campaign, although there's only one chapter (I guess) that's not on the PTR so far. Without explanation of his motivation behind aiding the Jailer and other meaningful stories he just seems like a token Vanilla reference with no much essence behind (unlike most of the other deceased characters that we meet in SL, they mostly have some relevant story). Not to mention that he's overshadowed by Sylvanas and Jailer's massive roles.
How many more times does he need to be defeated before he's officially too beaten to come back?
Sounds more like a copy/paste than a homage...
This isn't really surprising. Anyone who played through the last chapter of either the Venthyr or Necrolord covenant campaign saw the homage of the Kel'thuzad boss fight from Naxx with the adds approaching the player within a circle, within a necropolis no less! That the new raid will similarly be a homage to that was all but guaranteed.Anyhow, this seems like a more exciting second-last boss than Stone Legion Generals was. The raise dead mechanic in particular will encourage raid groups to play as good as possible.
yeah It's got kel'thuzad in it
Guess he really will die when he's killed this time.
Wait, how'd he get his Phylactery in the shadowlands? I hope we get some serious lore around him and the aftermath Naxx classic instead of just "I'M BACK!"
How many times do we need to teach you this lesson, old man?
Well, being defeated in Naxx he warned us about his return in a more deadly form. That's it. Took mere 15 years.
Pays homage to Heroes of the Storm as well. Glacial Spike, Frost Blast, etc. are part of his kit in-game.
Be cool if there’s an achievement for having Lil KT pet out during fight
Why did KT get sent to the Necrolords? He is AT LEAST Venthyr, probably straight to Maw material. I have a feeling Blizz put him in Necro just because he looks like a Necrolord.
