Mounts[edit | edit source]

Alarak's default mount is "Highlord's Ascent", a state where he floats above the ground. He is otherwise limited to mounts he can stand on (such as Blackheart's Doubloon, Champion's Nexagon, Championship Banner, Hearthstone Card, Magic Carpet, Star Chariot, and Void Speeder) - this is because the weight of his armor is too much for a stallion to bare.

  • Backstory: Should he choose to float only an inch off the ground, you would still be beneath the Highlord.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Alaraks kit revolves around his theme of vengeance as he moves his enemies around the battlefield and extractes a ton of damage afterwards.[3]
  • Alarak first appeared in the short story Ascension (October 2015). His first game appearance was in StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void (November 2015).
  • Alarak is voiced by John de Lancie.
    • Alarak's Q ability, Discord Strike, is also a nod to de Lancie – he played a character named "Q" in Star Trek, and he voices another named "Discord" in My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic.
  • Alarak was one of the two heroes revealed at Gamescon 2016.
  • The second tint of Alarak's default skin makes his eyes and the gems on his armor a forest green color.
    • It is also reffering to the Red Dragon from Highschool DxD.
