Thassarian was the first death knight to rejoin the Alliance. He was first encountered in Acherus: The Ebon Hold as a level 55 standing next to Orbaz Bloodbane and Koltira Deathweaver. In phase two after completing Neutral 15 [55] Victory At Death's Breach!, he relocates to the Scarlet Tavern with Bloodbane, where he is involved in the following quests:

  1. Quest Avail 16x16Neutral 15 [55] Brothers In Death
  2. Quest Complete 16x16Neutral 15 [55] Bloody Breakout
  3. Quest Avail 16x16Neutral 15 [55] A Cry For Vengeance!
  4. Quest Complete 16x16Neutral 15 [55] A Sort Of Homecoming

He shows up at the Battle for Light's Hope Chapel as a level 60 elite taking part in Neutral 15 [55] The Light of Dawn.

He next appears for all classes at the Wailing Ziggurat in Borean Tundra, where he is involved in the following quests:

  1. Quest Complete 16x16Alliance 15 [72] Thassarian, the Death Knight
  2. Quest Avail 16x16Quest Complete 16x16Alliance 15 [71] Finding the Phylactery
  3. Quest Avail 16x16Quest Complete 16x16Alliance 15 [72] Buying Some Time
  4. Quest Avail 16x16Quest Complete 16x16Alliance 15 [72] Words of Power
  5. Quest Avail 16x16Quest Complete 16x16Alliance 15 [72G3] Last Rites

Thassarian can later be found aboard the Alliance airship Skybreaker above the skies of Icecrown. He is involved in quests that unfold The Shadow Vault among others. He also plays a part in the unfolding storyline of the Wrath of The Lich King.



Even while he was in service of the Lich King, Thassarian seemed to be a noble person. After sending the player to rescue Koltira Deathweaver — against the code of the Scourge death knight — Orbaz Bloodbane asked why he cared, also insinuating his dislike of Koltira as he was a blood elf. Thassarian replied that, though they may have been hated enemies in life, "In death, we are brothers."

He appears to dual wield the Two-Handed Sword, Endbringer.


Warcraft: Death Knight, a new manga from TokyoPop, will reveal the untold story of Thassarian. The manga is due for release in December 2009. [1]

The quest Last Rites
See Dialog between Thassarian and various others atop Naxxanar.

To Tanathal: Speak, Lich! Undeath won't save you from what I'll put you through!

All I ever wished was to serve my king once again. For humanity, against a common enemy. Instead, I find that our numbers have been infiltrated by cultist scum.... and all of the signs point to Naxxanar as the origin of this rot.
