Muradin Bronzebeard, the Mountain King, is a melee Tank hero from the Warcraft universe.[1] Once a mentor to Prince Arthas, Muradin was unable to prevent him from becoming the Lich King.

Muradin is a sturdy Tank that can do well in a multitude of situations.

Background[edit | edit source]

Warcraft This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft universe.

During the Second War, Muradin served as official liaison between Lordaeron and Khaz Modan, and accompanied the Alliance armies shortly before the battles at Blackrock Spire and the Dark Portal. During that time period he grew close to the Royal Family, and befriended the young Prince Arthas. As Arthas grew up, Muradin took it upon himself to teach the lad all he knew about fighting with blades and the two became close companions on many adventures.

Muradin was also one of the founding members of the dwarven Explorers' Guild, which was dedicated to exploration and archaeology across the world. In his travels, Muradin visited Northrend and became fascinated with the desolate continent. He returned to it often, observing its ferocious natives and sketching its ruined architecture. It was during one expedition to Northrend in search of the runeblade Frostmourne that Muradin met Arthas for the final time. In his obsession to destroy the Dreadlord Mal'ganis, Arthas had Muradin lead him to Frostmourne, betraying his own men in the process.

The older and wiser Muradin was distressed by the change he saw in the young prince, but Arthas refused to listen to his counsel. Muradin gave a final desperate warning about the cursed blade, and was thought then to become its first victim when the ice imprisoning it shattered and impaled him. It seems that there are some accounts which claim it was Arthas who caused Muradin's "death" when claiming the sword[1][2] (which is true from a certain point-of-view if one stops to consider that it was Arthas who caused the explosion and didn't care in the least). But unbeknownst to everyone Muradin had survived his wounds and currently suffers from amnesia.

Muradin was eventually tracked down by a group of Frostborn dwarves, who followed his trail of blood-soaked snow during an extremely harsh blizzard. These Frostborn just happened to be on their way home to Frosthold from a trek across the Dragonblight. Not about to let their new-found cousin freeze to death, they took him along with them, and a short time later they came under attack by a jormungar. After slaying the worm single-handedly and saving the dwarves, they took him in and gave him the name Yorg Stormheart, after a legendary Frostborn warrior. Eventually, Muradin/Yorg became King of the Frostborn and brings his people into the Alliance, which had begun journeying into Northrend to do battle with the Lich King, the renegade blue dragonflight, and the iron dwarves. Despite his people befriending the Alliance and the Explorers' Guild, he expressed concern over involving his people in wars that would result in their deaths.

Muradin, after some help from some alliance heroes, is reunited with his brothers Brann and Magni which jogs his memories to come back to him. After regaining his memories Muradin leaves the Frostborn to hunt down Arthas. During the assault on Icecrown Citadel, Muradin commands the gunship Skybreaker eventually leading to Arthas’ defeat.

Soon after the defeat of Arthas, Muradin is informed his brother King Magni was turned to diamond performing a ritual in Old Ironforge. Muradin, along with Moira and Falstad Wildhammer, now rule Ironforge as the Council of Three Hammers
