Forums: Index Warcraft lore The Skull of Gul'dan (and Illidan)

Fact: The Skull of Gul'dan contained at least part of his (Gul'dan's) soul after he died.

Fact: Gul'dan's soul continued to communicate with the skull's possessors.

Fact: Illidan Stormrage absorbed the power of the skull, gaining lots of power.

Fact: The Skull does not communicate with players who loot it from Illidan.

Speculation: When Illidan absorbed the skull's power, he actually merged with the soul of Gul'dan, similar to what happened to the Lich King.

Is this theory reasonable? --Inv misc orb 04Xavius, the Satyr Lord 19:54, September 30, 2009 (UTC)

I don't believe Illidan merged with Gul'dan, I would say he absorbed the small residue left in the skull.

I think it's reasonable, in fact this is one of my fav ideas for what SHOULD have happened. Ner'zhul with Arthas' body vs Gul'dan in Illidan's body in the ultimate showdown which Azeroth has never seen... *sigh* and never will see... Max Krist (talk) 22:43, September 30, 2009 (UTC)
a fight between the lich king and illidan? are you serious? did you play the frozen throne? arthas fights illidan as a lvl 10 dk and 2 shots him -_- ... --Nazgren (talk) 23:49, November 4, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I always saw like that, too, Max Krist xDDD.
I think that Illidan could have absorbed his memories, but that's all. The Skull should keep Gul'dan still inside, just like I'm sure Ner'zhul still has some presence in the helm or Frostmourne, which wasn't lost to the fusion with Arthas.--Lon-ami (talk) 14:59, October 1, 2009 (UTC)

Actually it is very plausable, other wise how else would he know of the location of the Eye of Sagares?--The last Alterac (talk) 08:19, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

The Skull of Guldan held Guldan's memories. When Illidan consumed the skull in Felwood in the events of the Night Elf Campaign in Reign of Chaos. He not only gained Guldan's power and became a Demon Hybrid. He also gained or inherited Guldan's memories which one was the location of Sageras's Tomb where the Eye of Sageras was kept. On his mission to eliminate the Lich King by order of the Demonic Warlock Kil'jaeden, he came up with an idea to use the Artifact to shatter the Frozen Throne. And from What I think is that Guldan was already dead and Illidan can't probably have merged with Guldan like when Arthas and Ner'zhul merged their spirits together to form the Lich King. Is that there was a portion of Guldan in the Skull and Illidan only claimed it.----Arthas113 (talk) 21:53, April 7, 2012 (SG Time)
