You will not escape your fate.. Stacey Crosby. However, as they neared an empty spot in the forest, Arthas received another vision from the Lich King, who told him he'd been betrayed.
Sylvanas then appeared and shot him with a paralyzing arrow. Kel'Thuzad stepped in and chased her off at the last moment. But the Lich King's mental cries pierced Arthas' mind - he was told to return to Northrend, for demonic forces later revealed to be Illidan and the naga were working to destroy the Frozen Throne and end the self-proclaimed king's reign. Immediately, Arthas prepared his fleet and set sail for Northrend, leaving Kel'Thuzad behind to watch over Lordaeron.
Three weeks later, Arthas landed upon the familiar coast of Northrend, and unexpectedly found himself being attacked by blood elves led by Kael'thas , hungry for vengeance at their kingdom's destruction. Arthas was unexpectedly saved by a large crypt lord who introduced himself as Anub'arak , the former king of Azjol-Nerub. Kael'thas warned that though the preliminary scouting force may have fallen, their main army would not be so easily defeated, before teleporting away to safety.
Arthas worried that he may be right, and that they would never reach Icecrown Citadel before Illidan, but Anub'arak thought differently. He suggested that they delve into the shattered kingdom of Azjol-Nerub, using the underground passageways to beat Illidan to the Glacier. Seeing little other choice, Arthas agreed.
Anub'arak suggested raiding the hoard of Sapphiron , an ancient blue dragon and servant of Malygos , and equipping themselves with the dragon's treasures. Not only did they slay the dragon, but Arthas used what power he had left to raise Sapphiron into a powerful frost wyrm.
When he came to the doors of Azjol-Nerub, Arthas found himself being fired upon by dwarves, who revealed themselves to be followers of Muradin who had remained there when their leader appeared to die. Now, they were led by Muradin's second in command, Baelgun Flamebeard. Leaving Sapphiron outside, Arthas battled through not only Baelgun's dwarves, but also the Nerubian survivors, as he delved into the broken Spider Kingdom. Anub'arak's aid was invaluable, as he circumvented many traps which would have cut Arthas' stay fatally short.
As Arthas faced Baelgun, the dwarf warned that the shifting earth had released an ancient evil from below the kingdom. As Arthas and Anub'arak delved deeper into the kingdom, that evil became apparent - the Faceless Ones , a powerful, vicious race thought only to exist in legend. Arthas and Anub'arak even managed to defeat the incredibly powerful Forgotten One. As they made their way to the Upper Kingdom, an earthquake collapsed part of the passage they were in, separating Anub'arak from Arthas.
The young king had to rely upon his wits to see himself through several daunting booby traps before Anub'arak dug his way to Arthas. Once reunited, the crypt lord complimented the young death knight, saying he now understood why Ner'zhul had chosen him as his champion. As they climbed out of Azjol-Nerub, the Lich King contacted Arthas once again, and explained that he was losing his power, because the Frozen Throne had been cracked, and energy was seeping from it.
Ner'zhul replenished Arthas' powers, knowing he would need them in the coming battle. When they finally reached the surface, they immediately had to contend with Illidan's forces. Vashj's naga and Kael's blood elves were there to contest Arthas' minions at every turn.
Arthas, with Anub'arak's help, battled his way through their forces and magically activated the four Icecrown Obelisks around the glacier, opening the doors to the Frozen Throne. However, Illidan was waiting for him. Arthas warned Illidan to leave Azeroth and never return. Refusal from Illidan initiated a short but intense duel, with Illidan inadvertently leaving himself open.
Arthas pressed the advantage, slicing open the demon hunter's chest with Frostmourne. Illidan collapsed in the snow, as Arthas turned towards the gates of Icecrown triumphant. Arthas entered the hollow glacier and beheld a winding pinnacle chained to the ice. As he strode up the stairs towards his destiny, the voices of those he had forsaken flooded through his mind.
He heard Muradin Bronzebeard , Uther , and Jaina calling out to him, yet he ignored them, continuing his ascent. Finally, he reached the pinnacle and before him he saw an icy cask. Inside was a suit of armor, arranged as if seated on a massive throne. With a great cry of strength, Arthas brought Frostmourne to bear against the Lich King 's icy prison and with a haunting scream, the Frozen Throne exploded, and shards of the crystal scattered on the ground.
In that moment, Ner'zhul and Arthas' spirits fused into a single mighty being, just as the Lich King had always planned. Arthas as a single being ceased to exist, now one half of one of the most powerful entities Azeroth had ever known, the new Lich King. Arthas dies in the arms of his father's spirit as Tirion Fordring looks on. While he dreamed, Arthas banished his humanity and suppressed Ner'zhul's spirit, allowing him to become the dominant personality of the Lich King.
In doing so, he lured powerful heroes to Northrend and placed many challenges before them, seeking to weed out the weak and make the strong question their own morality. He planned to raise the world's greatest fighters as his new champions, and use them to spearhead attacks on their homelands, in a reflection of his own journey. His plan nearly succeeded when a group of adventurers led by Tirion Fordring finally ascended to the Frozen Throne and did battle with him after Horde, Alliance and Ashen Verdict forces assaulted Icecrown Citadel.
The Lich King froze Tirion in a block of ice, and in the middle of the battle, he suddenly killed the adventurers in a single mighty blow. Ultimately, the Lich King's plans were foiled when just as he was about to raise the would-be heroes into undeath, Tirion called upon the Light and freed himself from the ice, shattering Frostmourne with the Ashbringer , releasing all of the souls inside, including Arthas' soul.
The Lich King was severely weakened, and Terenas resurrected the adventurers who defeated him alongside Tirion. After striking a mortal blow against the Lich King, the Helm of Domination was knocked off of Arthas' head as he reached for it in desperation before collapsing on the ground. As he lay dying, the spirit of his father appeared before him as the glow brought on by his fusion with Ner'zhul faded from his eyes. With his soul freed and his connection with the Lich King severed, Arthas was returned to his former self, albeit in his dying moments.
Arthas asked his father if it was over, to which Terenas placed a comforting hand over Arthas' and replied "At long last. No king rules forever, my son. Arthas was a man of action - brave, impulsive and straightforward. He was an inspiring leader, leading his men by example. In conversations with other characters, he appeared witty and easy-going, yet able to hold true to his decisions and make others accept them.
Arthas also has a strong sense of loyalty to his men and his kingdom. On the other hand, Arthas was vindictive, occasionally lost control as described in the letter below , and never took well to losing. He always sought the approval of others such as his father and often felt underappreciated. He could not stand the thought of others betraying his trust, going as far as making Jaina promise never to deny him anything. Though he took up the blade in an effort to defend his people, this was all for naught, as he became the destroyer of that which he sought to protect.
After the death of his father, Arthas claims he no longer feels remorse, shame, or pity, which is explained by him losing his soul to Frostmourne. As a death knight, Arthas was not above mocking his enemies and gloating over their defeats. Despite this, somewhere deep inside him a portion of him still existed that fought against the darkness.
The Lich King later destroyed this small remnant of who he was, and only at the end, when Frostmourne was broken and the Lich King was defeated, was his soul finally released. Arthas was friends with Jarim Balnir , despite their differences in station. Arthas also became good friends with his mentors, Uther and Muradin.
Jaina and Arthas were close friends for many years and eventually became lovers. Though Arthas abruptly ended their relationship when he decided he wasn't ready to marry yet, he was determined to remain friends with the sorceress. As a death knight, Arthas seemed to enjoy conversations with his new allies, Kel'Thuzad and Anub'arak. He was not above expressing gratitude to Kel'Thuzad, and one of his final phrases before departing to Northrend was "You have been a loyal friend"  , something rarely heard from a dark lord addressing his minion.
After his death his old friends, Muradin, Uther, and Jaina forgive him. Muradin gives Arthas a touching eulogy, defining him as his brother, and ruing the day he had ever mentioned the sword to the prince.
Uther says that he will choose to forever remember him as the hero who always defended his people, no matter the cost. Arthas cared deeply for his people and sought their approval in return. He rarely let his title stand in the way and often treated commoners as near-equals. It was Arthas's empathy that would ultimately lead to his downfall, as he was driven to the edge by the sight of his people falling before the Scourge.
Once Arthas was convinced the only way to save his homeland was to destroy Mal'Ganis, he became determined to accomplish that at any cost. After learning Frostmourne had stolen his soul, one of the first things Arthas reflects on is whether he truly saved his people by taking it up. He is described as feeling a form of sadness as he releases some badly damaged minions from his grip during the battles of Quel'Thalas, and he was outraged when Anasterian damaged his steed, Invincible .
Even as the Death Knight, Arthas remains somewhat naive; he treated Sylvanas as a trusted general despite the fact they clashed when Sylvanas was alive, the fact he destroyed her homeland, and the fact the only reason Sylvanas aided him was because the Lich King's mental powers essentially made her a slave. Even as the Lich King, Arthas seems proud of his ability to "stir the hearts" of his "people. Mimblis Evermorne was a fellow paladin of Uther Lightbringer.
This letter was sent in the year The young Arthas fills me with hope. He recently became a full paladin, and is nearly all I could hope for in a Knight of the Silver Hand. He is strong and powerful, with a devotion to his people that borders on zealousness. Arthas has some growing to do, so I hope King Terenas will remain here for some time.
The only thing that bothers me about Arthas is that he has a disturbing quality in him. Sometimes, in training, I have seen him go a little far while sparring. He is so dedicating to winning the match that he forgets that it is only for training. He lacks control; I suppose it's a sense of ruthlessness that lies under his honorable exterior. I have full confidence that he will use this dedication to battle for his people, and I look forward to testing him.
Once he really wets his sword, I can begin to teach him control. Arthas loves his people very much. We recently visited some of the poorer villages outside of Lordaeron, giving healing to those in need. I wanted to test his healing powers, as well as see how he interacted with his people beyond the wealthy nobles in the city. He was full of pity for these people, weeping for a woman who had lost her leg in a wolf attack.
After healing her pain, he set out on horseback, searching for the wolf. He slew three, bringing the pelts back to the woman to serve as her blankets. I was touched, but again, a little alarmed at his singlemindedness. She was grateful, and as we were there to serve the wounded and sick, our work was completed. His relationship with Jaina Proudmoore is one I must watch. Perhaps it will be a good union of magic and politics, or at least bring the mages and paladins closer together.
I will watch them carefully. A good thing about Jaina is that she will soften his hard edges. While she attacks her obstacles with a firm and unyielding mind, she is more diplomatic and cerebral in her approach, while Arthas may simply hammer on something until it disintegrates. They will make a strong union: He is the naked steel of a sword, and she is a fist in a velvet glove. I have confidence that they will receive public support, and I will lend them my support as well.
I watch Arthas training on the field, and feel he can take on anything. He attacks with a single-mindedness that I know he will apply toward anything in life, be it physical confrontations or political. King Terenas has a good son. I have total confidence in Arthas. Arthas from the Ghostlands book. It is my sad duty to bring you very grim news. We fought together against the Scourge, and although I survived, Muradin fell to the undead and demons.
I grieve for my brave friend and your valiant brother. I shall be returning to Lordaeron soon. With Frostmourne in hand, I come to reestablish order and bring forth a shining new age. You cannot know how deep are my sympathies. You have lost a brother, and I have lost a valued friend.
Arthas in Old Stratholme. This section concerns content exclusive to World of Warcraft. A purple flowering plant is named after the dark Prince, " Arthas's Tears ". A potent alchemical concoction made from these flowers is also named after him, the " Gift of Arthas ".
As you stand in the throne room of Lordaeron [if you turn your volume up] , you can hear the voices of Terenas Menethil II arguing with his council, also you can hear him outraged at what Arthas was about to do This section concerns content exclusive to Wrath of the Lich King. The player accompanies him through the town as he kills its plagued population and agents of the infinite dragonflight attempting to kill him. The player can also see him in flashbacks on the Forgotten Shore , when the Alliance Emissary arrives to order the troops home in the quest  The Truth Shall Set Us Free and in Frostmourne Cavern , where he claims the cursed runeblade Frostmourne.
The flashback itself is essentially the cutscene from Warcraft III where he claims Frostmourne — with an ending revealing that after Arthas left the cavern with Muradin supposedly dead, Muradin awakened with amnesia and wandered outside the cavern. In a quest chain given by Matthias Lehner an anagram of "Arthas Menethil" in Icecrown , the player can actually take on the role of Arthas in two critical moments in his history: When he turned on his own men and raised them as the undead  Army of the Damned and his epic duel with Illidan  The Hunter and the Prince.
This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm. Arthas also appears in the new quest in Felwood, A Destiny of Flame and Sorrow , as a flashback given by Feronas Sindweller , where players help Illidan defeat him. The quest depicts their first conversation in Felwood. At some point the model in Felwood was given the Helm of Domination , though he didn't wear it at that point. This section concerns content exclusive to Mists of Pandaria. Images of Arthas and his father King Terenas briefly appeared during the quest  Gods and Monsters.
This section concerns content exclusive to Heroes of the Storm. Arthas is a warrior hero in Heroes of the Storm. Arthas in Lament of the Highborne. Though his body was undone, his evil side might linger on, continuing to advise and corrupt Bolvar Fordragon as Ner'zhul did to him.
This might classify his status as either "eternal" or "ghost", but however, this hasn't been clarified by Blizzard, seeing as they haven't brought the new Lich King into play. It might also be possible, seeing that many evil characters who were thought gone for good have returned i. Deathwing was thought dead at least twice, Ner'zhul returned as the original Lich King, Kael'thas came back in a deformed appearance, etc. After Arthas made his case and explained why the citizens of Stratholme needed to be purged both Uther and Jaina abandoned him.
This decision by Uther and Jaina is undoubtably the cause of Arthas's eventual path to become the Lich King. Had they stood by him and thought about the situation rationally like one would expect from a master Paladin and a Mage of the Kirin Tor, then Arthas would not have faced one of the most horrific moments in his life without his closest friends. With the weight of abandonment by his partner and his mentor on his heart Arthas dedicated his life to chasing down Mal'Ganis believing he had nothing left to lose.
Hence, if Jaina and Uther had listened to his plight and sided with Arthas. Arthas would have never chased down Frostmourne. Muradin would've encountered it in Frostmourne's cave and left it alone as he suggested Arthas to do leaving the blade there, unlikely to be found soon. This in turn would prevent the scourge from ever entering Quel'Thalas and Silvermoon. Leaving the Sunwell intact and the High Elves uncorrupted.
Kael'thas and Illidan would never have met and thus the Blood Elves would never have reinforced Illidan's crusade against Ner'zhul. How Illidan's march on Icecrown would have ended without the Blood Elves is hard to predict. However, this turn of events would have shifted the power balance heavily in favor to the Alliance as the Forsaken and Blood Elves would never exist.
Aside from that, Jaina most likely would've never met Thrall. Dooming the new Horde before it could even get started. Another piece of this hypothetical puzzle would be that Arthas was the one that pointed Illidan in the direction of Tichondrius and the Skull of Gul'dan. Without those directions Illidan may have never absorbed the fell powers of Gul'dan and remained a Night Elf. Then again, with Kel'Thuzad dead and the Scourge invasion of Lordaeron failed it could be that Illidan and his Naga would've just steamrolled the now championless Nerzhul.
Illidan wouldn't have had to hide his failure from Kil'Jaeden. This alternate universe must have some flaws though, most likely the lack of strife after the troll wars and the wars against the Horde would've made the Alliance soft enough to either fall against C'tun or the united Zandalari Empire.
Not to mention Deathwing's return. The implications of this change to the history would've caused an immense ripple in the timeways and the Bronze flight is probably preventing that as you're reading this. WoWWiki Explore. WoW info.
