The Monastery was once a proud bastion of Lordaeron's priesthood - a center for learning and enlightenment. However, with the rise of the undead Scourge during the Third War, the peaceful Monastery was converted into a stronghold of the fanatical Scarlet Crusade. Under Whitemane's command, the members of the Scarlet Crusade have become ever more extreme in their battle against the Scourge. Their grasp on reality was slipping and as time moved on, Whitemane and her followers no longer trusted anyone that was not part of their own Scarlet Crusade, considering them plagued. Large numbers of innocent men and women were tortured and eventually killed because of this.
It is known that both Raleigh the Devout in the Hillsbrad Foothills and Varimathras in the Undercity are determined to eliminate the leadership of the Scarlet Monastery, albeit for different reasons. The dreadlord of the Forsaken wishes to end the continued threat of the Scarlet Crusade so close to his capital and the human in Southshore believes the only way the Scarlet Crusade can be brought back to its original purpose is to remove the corrupted leaders.
She is raised into undeath to be part of the Four Horsemen by the Deathlord, leader of the Order of Death Knights in the Legion invasion, along with Nazgrim, Thalas Trollbane, and Highlord Darion Mograine.
Before the High Inquisitor enters the fight, players will first have to defeat Scarlet Commander Mograine. The second he falls down Whitemane will emerge from the room behind the altar and immediately join the battle. Note that like most bosses she is immune to stun effect. If kept in combat long enough, she will mind control a random party member.
When she has about 50% health left she will shield herself, sleep the entire party, and begin to resurrect the Scarlet Commander. Before the sleep spell wears off she will heal Mograine to full health and he will use a Lay on Hands on her, so they will both be at 100% HP when you wake up. A common tactic is to then remain focused on killing Whitemane before dealing with Mograine again.
