Wrestling control over the Scourge from a trio of dreadlords (Varimathras, Detheroc, and Balnazzar), the self-appointed King Arthas begins to solidify his hold over his homeland by wiping out the last remnants of humanity from it. During the battle, the death knight experiences agonizing pain and weakness, accompanied by a warning from the Lich King about grave danger. Arthas realizes that he has to leave for Northrend as soon as possible, yet his departure is interrupted by a massive insurgency among the Scourge ranks sparked by the three dreadlords. With the Lich King's grasp over the undead growing weaker, Sylvanas Windrunner regains her free will and betrays Arthas, yet he still manages to leave the continent. Sylvanas coerces Varimathras to join her cause and eventually defeats his two brothers, gaining control over the former Capital City of Lordaeron, establishing herself as the leader of the liberated Undead, who would thenceforth be known as the Forsaken.
