- Grand Champions – The Lich King is relentless, his undead armies pouring forth to overwhelm his foes. To prepare would-be champions against him, Highlord Tirion Fordring presents a test of courage, endurance, and teamwork. His hardened veterans will weed out those who lack the stomach to face the ravening throngs of undead.
- Eadric the Pure – Before heroes can challenge the forces of darkness, they must defeat agents of the Light. Highlord Tirion Fordring has selected a formidable paladin from the Argent Crusade to test combatants' mettle. Eadric will go to great lengths to cull those without the moral conviction to enter Icecrown Citadel.
- Argent Confessor Paletress – Before heroes can challenge the forces of darkness, they must defeat agents of the Light. Highlord Tirion Fordring has selected a formidable priest from the Argent Crusade to test combatants' mettle. Paletress will do everything in her power to ensure that only those with strong faith will confront the Scourge.
- The Black Knight – The Lich King is cunning and will use treachery to thwart his enemies. To that end, he has dispatched the Black Knight to eliminate promising candidates from Highlord Tirion Fordring's army. The undead's mere presence defiles the Crusaders' Coliseum, and those who prevail against him will prove their worthiness.
