As the wielder of Shadow's Edge uses it to steal souls from the Lich King's minions in Icecrown Citadel, the Lich King will occasionally speak to them.
- The Lich King whispers: Take them, mortal. These souls will again be mine, soon enough.
- The Lich King whispers: Soon, mortal, you too shall have a blade for a prison.
- The Lich King whispers: Remember hero: I, too, once sought a weapon of great power...
- The Lich King whispers: I see you too are gathering souls for your own ends. Are we really so different, champion?
- The Lich King whispers: The Light will abandon you, hero, just as it did me.
- The Lich King whispers: Yes, do it! Create your monstrous new weapon. It too will serve me when your soul is mine!
- The Lich King whispers: Bring me your weapon, champion, that I might feed it the soul of its master.
- The Lich King whispers: Look at you, child, would-be wielder of souls! You cannot fathom the power that lies at my command!
- The Lich King whispers: Come to me, pretender! Feed MY blade!
- The Lich King whispers: My challenges have strengthened you, champion! You shall serve me well!
- The Lich King whispers: Never have I had cause to regret sparing your life, mortal. Always, you find ways to amuse me.
- The Lich King whispers: The moment is soon at hand, mortal. You shall toil for eternity in a new Azeroth!
- The Lich King whispers: More souls, yes, more! You shall find it hard to stop.
- The Lich King whispers: The hunger your weapon feels is but a shade of what awaits. Do you want to see real hunger? Real power? Continue onward, hero! I am waiting.
- The Lich King whispers: You stumble about in darkness. There is no light here. No mercy. Icecrown has claimed the souls of better heroes than you.
- The Lich King whispers: Your heart... its incessant drumming disgusts me. I will silence it, as I did my own.
