    Wow's overall Best Bad Guy

    Wow, both past and present, has its assortment of bad guys, some with long standing lore, others with very short.

    Lets talk about given everything that has happened in the story, and so many villains who have parted world of warcrafts story, who do you feel has had the best story, the best development, the best send off, and overall the best impact on the overall wow genre.

    this isn't a vote for who is most powerful, its who is overall the better villain.

    Lich King.

    I was HOPING Deathwing would be an amazing Villain but..

    Well, yeah. Story kinda fell apart.

    I am saying the lich king too.

    As far as all over bad guys in the story, Arthas had the best development, he truely became an intimidating force in wrath, and in general he was done perfectly and had the best send off.

    I like the sha, it may be new, but it's interesting to me. The story with Emperor Shaohao is really cool to me.

    My vote would go for Illidan. I like the lore revolving around him and I liked how he were presented in-game. So, yeah. Arthas is also way up there. So it is more or less Illidan and Arthas, but for me Illidan did pick the longest straw.

    illidan was cool too, but I just don't feel he was given a great send of, and his presentation in wow was crap.

    Deathwing had the whole " im going to end the world", wich is the badest.
    But IMO Azshara with her vision the cleanse the world of lesser races with the means of bringing the legion to Azeroth is on my top.
    Doesn't matter whatever picture I post here, "Scrapbot" will allways infract me for it.

    ^

    My runner up is the Sha. They're honestly fantastic.

    The Sha of Fear is actually..menacing.

    Gul'Dan. Hands down. I still hope that they'll ress him somehow, i want to fight him. Maybe now when Garrosh have Mogu Technology, could it be possible with Spiritbinding? Garrosh wants power and Gul'Dan could surely help him.

    EDIT: Why so much love for The EMO King?

    Not just that with the Lich King but the actual fight against him was profusely difficult and rewarding. Every second of that fight felt like it was hardfought and story driven.

    How can u ask this? I just chose Illidan because it had no votes lol. For me every boss is so for a reason and all of them certaintly lived up to the expectations of all mortals that fought them =P

    Azshara also gets my not on poll vote.she might not be the strongest but she is pure evil and self absorbed that when she finally does come into play she will become an ultimate villain.

    Mal'Ganis. In my opinion, half the shit that went down with Arthas wouldn't have been remotely possible without Mal'Ganis pushing his buttons, guiding him towards Kel'Thuzad and all the other crazy shit.

    I'm a fan of plenty of the Warcraft villains. Gul'dan was the most treacherous, and so he's up there. I'd put Kael'thas up there too, if just because he was just a misguided little brat gone wrong.

    But the Lich King's definitely the overall best bad guy. Warcraft III built him up well, and World of Warcraft (as far as I'm concerned) didn't disappoint with his time in the spotlight.

    From the 3.3.0 ICC trailer...

    The transition from an army of seasoned veterans noisily preparing to storm the gates of the citadel, to the eerie ghostly silence of the Halls of Reflection, and the footsteps of the King echoing send a shiver down my spine each time I watch it. Terenas' monologue, calm and collected at first, soon becomes angry and threatening, while Arthas' cocksure attitude leaves me feeling that this Warcraft boss could make it out alive.

    Then of course, the final line "Frostmourne hungers" leaves a delightful taste of nostalgia. Long live the King!


    Seeing him sitting upon his throne...
    The eerie feel of the top of the citadel...
    The icy chill of Northrend all around you...
    His massive armor and legendary runeblade, gripped firmly by its master's hands...

    Now that was epic.

    He's the only boss EVER to have killed the "heroes" (players), and not counting ALL those he's killed in his lifetime.


    And here's his massive kill list: http://www.wowpedia.org/Arthas_Menethil#Kill_count

    Don't forget Ner'zhul's kill list, too!

    Lich King: I spy, with my little eye, something beginning with a ...s...
    Arthas: Snow...?
    Lich King: Yeah...
    Arthas: God, I'm sick of this game.
