The Siege of Dalaran is chapter 7 of the Path of the Damned campaign.

Critters

(Antonidas appears twice on this map; the southern Antonidas speaks during the cinematic and is removed upon the start of the mission.)

Battle

In preparation for the undead attack, a small group of wizards (which included Antonidas) prepared a special that would do damage to any undead that entered the city. Kel'thuzad however was able to sense them and revealed to Arthas that the auras causing the damage to the Scourge would disperse upon the death of the wizards. With a clear target in the mind for their mission of claiming the Book of Medivh, the Scourge began the invasion of the Dalaran and quickly slew the first wizard and freed the first level of Dalaran of the aura harming them. Additionally the Arthas and Kel'thuzad freed creatures that the Kirin Tor had caged for studying and they engaged the Kirin Tor in battle as well.

With their new unexpected allies in tow the Scourge was able to locate the second wizard (who had hidden himself) and destroy the second Kirin Tor outpost in the city. With the outpost destroyed the Scourge began to ready themselves for their final push against Antonidas. However while the first wizard was camped in the entrance of Dalaran and the second hidden (each with a few defenders), Antonidas had a whole army defending him as he kept up the final aura.

With no other course of action the Scourge engaged said army in battle and after a fierce intense battle the Scourge were victories, Antonidas slain, and the Book of Medivh in hands of Kel'thuzad.

Transcript

Prelude

As Arthas demanded the Kirin Tor's surrender, Antonidas came to greet him.
IconSmall ArthasDK.gif Arthas: Wizards of the Kirin Tor! I am Arthas, first of the Lich King's death knights! I demand that you open your gates and surrender to the might of the Scourge!
IconSmall Antonidas.gif Antonidas: Greetings, Prince Arthas. How fares your noble father?
IconSmall ArthasDK.gif Arthas: Lord Antonidas. There's no need to be snide.
IconSmall Antonidas.gif Antonidas: We've prepared for your coming, Arthas. My brethren and I have erected auras that will destroy any undead that pass through them!
IconSmall ArthasDK.gif Arthas: Your petty magics will not stop me, Antonidas.
IconSmall Antonidas.gif Antonidas: Pull your troops back, or we will be forced to unleash our full powers against you! Make your choice, death knight.
Antonidas teleports away.
IconSmall Kel'Thuzad.gif Kel'Thuzad: I sense that three separate wizards are maintaining these auras. If you find and kill them, the auras will disperse.

During the Mission

  • IconSmall Kel'Thuzad.gif Kel'Thuzad: The Archmage has been killed. The first aura is dispersing.
  • IconSmall Kel'Thuzad.gif Kel'Thuzad: The Kirin Tor keeps these creatures caged for studying. If they were to be released, they would cause our enemies a great deal of pain.
  • IconSmall Kel'Thuzad.gif Kel'Thuzad: The second wizard has fallen. Only one cursed aura remains.
  • IconSmall Kel'Thuzad.gif Kel'Thuzad: The wizards keep many enchanted items within that vault. Shatter it, and we can use their own weapons against them.

Mission Completed

IconSmall Antonidas.gif Antonidas: It pains me to even look at you, Arthas.
IconSmall ArthasDK.gif Arthas: I'll be happy to end your torment old man. I told you that your magics could not stop me. (Arthas kills Antonidas).
Arthas and Kel'Thuzad retrieve the Book of Medivh.
IconSmall ArthasDK.gif Arthas: The spellbook is all yours, lich. Let's take it and leave before the wizards amass for their final attack.
IconSmall Kel'Thuzad.gif Kel'Thuzad: Indeed. I will begin summoning Lord Archimonde at sunset.
