Arthas (as Death Knight not Lich King)
Dranosh Saurfang the Deathbringer
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.
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.
I see dead people and blood in my blades.
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.
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
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.
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.
“To who do you reward the right to decide which speech is harmful, or who is the harmful speaker? Or to determine in advance what are the harmful consequences going to be, that we know enough about in advance to prevent? [...] It may not be determined in advance what words are apt or inapt. No one has the knowledge that would be required to make that call.”
- Christopher Hitchens, 1949 - 2011
Arthas. Just because Gorefiend was the first, doesn't make him the strongest.
You now stand before the Countess.
A story of Firsts from around the world:
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.
