Patch 3.2: Argent Coliseum 5-man story and encounters, Pt. 3

THE CHAMPIONS

Tirion's next challenge is to pit you against the familiar faces of the opposite faction's city Champions!

Horde players will fight:
Ambrose Boltspark (Gnome, class unknown)
Colosos (Draenei, likely paladin)
Lana Stouthammer (Dwarf paladin)
Marshal Jacob Alerius (Human, likely warrior)
Jaelyne Evensong (Night elf, so of course she's either a hunter or druid)

Alliance players will fight:
Deathstalker Visceri (Forsaken rogue)
Eressea Dawnsinger (Blood elf paladin)
Mokra the Skullcrusher (Orc warrior)
Runok Wildmane (Tauren druid)
Zul'tore (Troll shaman)

I unfortunately don't really have information on what spells or abilities the other faction's champions will use. They're likely to be beefed-up versions of existing class abilities, though, given some suspect entries in the spell list.

After you take down the Champions, an old acquaintance from the Tournament crashes the party.


THE BLACK KNIGHT

The Black Knight: You spoiled my grand entrance, rat. Did you honestly think that an agent of the Lich King would be bested on the field of your...pathetic little tournament? I've come to finish my task.

Hey, it's that guy! I'm not sure who he's talking to at the beginning, there -- it may be the herald or it may be a Silver Covenant or Sunreaver rep. The reason I bring those up is because of the following spells:

Raise Dead Arelas Brightstar (Silver Covenant)
Raise Dead Jaeren Sunsworn (Sunreaver)

It's possible that he raises either as a ghoul during the fight. He appears to use a number of stock DK abilities, like Blood Strike, Plague Strike, and Obliterate. In absence of a full list of moves, though, here are some interesting voice clips:

The Black Knight: My rotting flesh was just getting in the way! (this clip is marked as SkeletonRes.)
The Black Knight: I don't need bones to best you! (this clip is marked as GhostRes.)

So it appears that first you beat him so hard he resurrects as a skeleton, and then in phase 3 he resurrects as a ghost. He's pretty dedicated! And this voice clip upon defeat sounds downright miserable:

The Black Knight: I must not fail...again...

That's the end of this roundup -- the next article will be a rundown of what we (and I) know about the Coliseum raid encounters.


Patch 3.2 will bring about a new 5, 10, and 25 man instance to WoW, and usher in a new 40-man battleground called the Isle of Conquest. WoW.com will have you covered every step of the way, from extensive PTR coverage through the official live release. Check out WoW.com's Guide to Patch 3.2 for all the latest!
