History[edit | edit source]

Warcraft This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft universe.

Arthas Menethil, the crown prince of Lordaeron, was the son of King Terenas Menethil II, and Queen Lianne Menethil and brother of Princess Calia Menethil. He joined the Order of the Silver Hand led by Uther the Lightbringer, and was trained as a paladin. Arthas was a promising knight, though he eventually spiraled down a path of vengeance.

Arthas's downfall began at Stratholme, one of the first cities to be struck by the plague. Upon discovering that the grain stores in the city had been infected, Arthas ordered Uther and a Kirin Tor mage named Jaina Proudmoore to help him purge the city in order to prevent the plague from spreading further. Uther and Jaina refused to follow his demands, however, and Arthas went on to purge the city without them. In Stratholme, Arthas encountered and fought a dreadlord by the name of Mal'Ganis. Before Mal'Ganis fled, he told Arthas to meet him in the arctic land of Northrend.

Arthas gathered an army and set sail for Northrend. Upon his arrival, he encountered an old friend by the name of Muradin Bronzebeard. After Muradin told Arthas of an ancient and powerful runeblade called Frostmourne, which had the potential to slay Mal'Ganis, the two friends set out to look for the weapon. Upon finding Frostmourne, however, Muradin realized it was cursed and said they should leave it be. Arthas, willing to pay any price to save his people, did not heed Muradin's warning. He claimed the blade and seemingly killed his old friend in the process.

With Frostmourne in hand, Arthas set out to find Mal'Ganis. He fought through hordes of undead before reaching the dreadlord. Mal'Ganis revealed to Arthas that the whispers he was hearing from Frostmourne were actually the voice of the Lich King, and asked him what the Lich King's next instructions were. Arthas replied that the voice was telling him to enact his vengeance. Striking the astonished dreadlord down, Arthas abandoned his men and began wandering through the frozen wastes, where he lost what remained of his sanity. When Arthas returned to Lordaeron, he killed his father in cold blood and conquered the kingdom in the name of the Scourge.

Some time later, following the destruction he had wrought on the continent, the Lich King ordered Arthas to return to Northrend. Illidan Stormrage, who had been instructed by the Burning Legion to destroy the Lich King, raced Arthas to the immobile Lich King's seat of power in Icecrown. Ultimately, the two fought and Arthas emerged victorious. Arthas shattered the Frozen Throne and placed the helm of the Lich King upon his head, allowing the two to become one single being.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Arthas is an aggressive Tank who who can be played both as a Bruiser and as a Tank. Arthas excels at slowing and rooting several opponents at the same time, which allows him to either chase down retreating enemies or to peel for threatened allies. The ability to reduce the Attack Speed of nearby opponents, makes him an excellent choice against Melee Assassins who are dependent on Basic Attacks.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Arthas first appeared in the novel Warcraft: Of Blood and Honor (January 2001). His first in-game appearance was in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos (July 2002).
  • In Warcraft III, Arthas is voiced by Justin Gross. In subsequent appearances, he is voiced by Patrick Seitz (paladin/death knight Arthas) and Michael McConnohie (Lich King Arthas).
  • Arthas was one of the 18 heroes revealed at BlizzCon 2013.
  • Arthas's model was designed first and his role in the game was decided upon later.[2]
  • Blizzard considered giving Crown Prince Arthas a hammer, but that would have required additional animation work, in addition to conflicting with Uther and creating confusion. They also considered making paladin Arthas a skin for Uther, rather than Arthas, but that would have opened another can of worms. Ultimately, they decided to depict paladin Arthas immediately after he picked up Frostmourne. That meant his animations could stay the same, and since he still had his sword he was still recognizable as Arthas.[3][4]
  • NECA revealed the Heroes of the Storm Arthas action figure at SDCC 2015.[5]
  • Arthas's "hail to the king" quote references a line spoken by Ash Williams in Army of Darkness (February 1993).
  • Arthas's "looking for a few dead men" quote references a 1985 United States Marine Corps commercial.
  • Arthas's "my condition has left me cold" quote references a line spoken by Mr. Freeze in Batman & Robin (June 1997).
  • Arthas's "no man can defeat me" quote references a line spoken by the Witch-king of Angmar in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (December 2003).
  • Some of Arthas's quotes reference the running joke about Darkness.
