Lore[edit | edit source]

Altruis the Sufferer is a former defector from the Illidari. While he reconciled with his brethren in Legion, he still opposes Illidan's methods. He is one of two exclusive Demon Hunter followers in Legion, the other being  Kayn Sunfury.

Altruis the Sufferer is a renegade night elven demon hunter originally brought to Outland by  Illidan Stormrage. He ultimately left the Betrayer's service when he decided that Illidan had become the very thing he was sworn to fight, making camp in western Nagrand with his nether drake mount,  Nethrandamus, and making plans against the Burning Legion encampments there.  Akama admired Altruis for opposing the direction Illidan was taking. He was eventually captured by the night elf Wardens, who imprisoned him along with the other demon hunters in the Vault of the Wardens. Freed during the Third invasion of the Burning Legion and although reconciled with his Illidari brethren, Altruis still does not condone Illidan's methods and wants new leadership for the Illidari.

Altruis' title "the Outcast" is unique to Hearthstone, although almost certainly pays homage to the similarities between his effect and the Outcast mechanic.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Altruis the Outcast's entry music comes from Mardum Music, shared with  Kayn Sunfury and  Jace Darkweaver.
  • Altruis the Outcast went through multiple drastic changes during the development.
    • The earliest design was a 3-mana 3/2 with card text "Outcast: Add a copy of each card you played this turn to your hand."
    • Another design was to change the text into "Cards in your hand have "Outcast: Deal 1 damage to all enemies.""[1]
  • Altruis' flavor text is a reference to a line from Futurama.
