As always, let's start off with the ground rules:
Mal'Ganis (The Culling of Stratholme) Mal'Ganis
- Assume that the opponents and their minions share similar levels, health pools and comparative overall damage output.
- This deathmatch takes place in neutral territory, which shall not hinder either boss from using his usual encounter abilities.
- All the usual minions will be available to each boss.
- Don't get caught up in gameplay mechanics and what actual players might do in each encounter.
- Focus on the three S's: style, story and scale.
slammed through his first-round match against Varos Cloudstrider (The Oculus)
with a definitive three-quarters of the reader vote. After all, he's not merely the last boss in The Culling of Stratholme – he's one of the Nathrezim
sent by Archimonde
to head up the plot to turn Prince Arthas
to darkness and make him the Lich King's
Note that while we do allow minions into the ring with our Two Bosses Enter competitors, Prince Arthas Menethil will not be attending this particular battle.

.Ormorok the Tree-Shaper (The Nexus) Ormorok
also smashed through his first-round oppenent, Meathook (The Culling of Stratholme)
, garnering 65 percent of the reader vote. Ormorok and his creations were captured and put into the Nexus to serve as guards. Ormorok himself is the sentinel to one part of Keristrasza's prison. Over time, exposure to the Nexus' massive Arcane energies has rendered Ormorok and his creations completely mad.
Ormorok summons assistants during battle, which we'll allow for this fight.

Remember: no game-mechanic nitpicking. Vote for the spirit of the battle as set forth above. Set aside differences in opponents' health pools, game level and actual damage output, and size up these villains based on their fighting style.
