    I'd say Mograine as he's one of the few still alive. Koltira and Thassarian are alive as well, but pretty much equals and we saw what happened to Koltira.

    I wouldn't pick Arthas even if he was the Lich King. Jaina knocked off 40% of his health in Halls of Reflection by melee swinging on him. When a mage works you that bad without firing off spells, it's time to reroll back to paladin.

    Yup. Was going to say, Arthas was pretty much nothing until he put on the helm and at that point became one with the Lich King and therefore ceasing to be a DK.

    well u gotta look at it this way.
    what iteration of death knight are u asking about?
    guldan's warlock death knights?
    or nerzhuls warrior death knights.

    you cant throw gorefiend and arthas in the same question because they are completely different types of death knight. its like asking whats the better ranged dps, a hunter or a rogue with shuriken toss.
    that being said, ill always deem gorefiend the strongest out of them all. he was the first. death did not stop him multiple times. hes bros with guldan. he 'served' illidan because it suited him. if gorefiend wanted to rule outland, he would have. most likely gorefiend served under illidan to get at all the loose souls in the black temple. being a place of desecration and mass murder, the haunted house restless spirits theory is probably true in this case. gorefiend saw black temple as a gold mine of souls, including the reliquary of souls.

    It's pretty much a duel between Arthas and Teron. But they aren't the same kind of Death Knight, so I'm not exactly sure you can compare.

    If you're talking about modern Scourge Death Knights, then Arthas is clearly the winner here.

    We don't believe in your Horde or your Alliance. We only believe in undeath.

    Teron is Illidans bitch. Arthas is stronger than Illidan. It isn't that hard to see who's stronger...

    Also gotta love the Arthas hate :P

    Teron > Arthas (until he put on the helm)

    During TFT final moments, Arthas defeats (and almost kills) Illidan. Even when he (arthas) was weakened. So it's safe to say that Arthas (DK) was way stronger than Illidan. In TBC we see Teron Gorefiend serving Illidan Stormrage, the same Illidan who almost died by the hands of arthas. So, it's safe to say that Illidan is more powerfull than Teron, otherwise he would proclaim himself the lord of outland and kill illidan in the process.

    So, it goes as Arthas > Illidan > Teron = Arthas > Teron.
    Arthas wasn't weakened when he fought Illidan. Ner'zhul sent him everything he could spare to get him to beat Illidan to the throne. In the book, Arthas was as strong as ever when Ner'zhul did this.
    Perfect example of why "community" forums are poisonous to the health of a development team. These developers are wasting hundreds of hours trying to stem the tide of incessant bitchery that would never, ever abate so long as these entitled, unfortunate human beings don't get their way.

    I had the impression that Teron was just chilling in black temple and Illidan was ok with that.

    He did a lot more than Teron Gorefiend did.

    Yeah he did.That still doesn't make him stronger than Teron, before he put on the crown ofc, until then he was carried by Frostmourne.

    Eh, Teron Gorefiend wasn't the same type of death knight that Arthas was, or that our current Death Knights are.

    Teron, along with the rest of the 'death knights' back then, was more like an undead warlock than the undead warriors we have now and that Arthas was.

    Arthas. Just because Gorefiend was the first, doesn't make him the strongest.
    You now stand before the Countess.

    Even before turning into the Lich King, Arthas was being lent Ner'zhul's strength. He is hands down the most powerful Death Knight in history. Teron Gorefiend was certainly exceptionally strong AND the first but he wasn't the best.

    Jaina is not only the strongest, but in fact the most evil character on Azeroth. By a massive margin. Like, she's worse than all of the old gods combined. Basically every bad thing that has happened since the beginning of the third war can be traced to her.
