Uther's Tomb

[52, 83]

is a monument dedicated to Uther the Lightbringer, at Sorrow Hill in what is now Western Plaguelands - the only bastion of Light in a dying land.


Uther and some of the remaining paladins of The Silver Hand had taken control of Andorhal after the fall of Lordaeron until Arthas (who had become the greatest of the Lich King's death knights) came to find a magical vessel to carry the remains of Kel'Thuzad to the Sunwell in Quel'Thalas in order to resurrect him. Arthas led an army of undead minions to kill those defending the city and confront Uther. They engaged in combat, Uther had nearly defeated Arthas at one stage, but with the might of Frostmourne, Arthas killed Uther and took the urn of King Terenas for himself.


Uther's body was retrieved by his remaining soldiers, and buried in a great tomb built for him to the south of the ruins of Andorhal, vigilantly guarded by defenders of the Alliance. The headstone shows him in a heroic pose, a tome of Light in one hand, his warhammer in the other. The marker stone before it, written in the Common tongue, reads:

Here lies Uther the Lightbringer

First Paladin - Founder of the Order of the Silver Hand.

Uther lived and died to defend the Kingdom of Lordaeron. Though he was betrayed by his most beloved student, we believe that his spirit lives on. He continues to watch over us, even as the shadows close in around our ruined land. His light is the light of all humanity - and so long as we honor his example, it shall never fade.

High Priest Thel'danis is the caretaker of Uther's Tomb.
