    You mean Bolvar? He became the new Lich King. He's still up there, encased in The Frozen Throne, keeping the Scourge in check.

    That was Bolvar Fordragon. He is immolated because the Lich King tortured him. He sacrificed himself by taking up the helm, becoming the next Lich King. In doing that, he can keep the Scourge in check, preventing them from destroying Azeroth. He is still encased inside the Frozen Throne.

    Very good thing. There always has to be a Lich King. With no Lich King, the Scourge would run rampant across the globe and destroy everything. He's keeping that from happening.

    He's a cliffhanger for upcoming redoing of Northrend.

    Actually, he is immolated because the red dragons burned his corpse while trying to clear out the Forsaken toxin.

    For now, who knows how long he will remain as noble as he is, I would say it is neither really good, nor really bad.
    He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.

    True, there's always the possibility of corruption. As of right now, though, it's a good thing he's there. Time will tell if he turns. Hopefully not, I don't want to deal with another Lich King. lol

    I would imagine we have bigger things to worry about with the burning legion on the move and Illidan set to make a comeback

    That was Bolvar Fordragon, he was the Regent-King of Stormwind in the absence of King Varian when he was kidnapped. He acted as king alongside with Katrana, which could be seen in the Vanilla till the end of Burning crusade.

    When the call to arms for the war against the scourge, Bolvar commanded the fleet to northrend, from there he led an assault at the Wrath-Gate, where a combined might of both horde and alliance attacked.

    In that moment, The Lich King (Arthas) came out and started a fisco, and just before things started getting heated, a Forsaken group attacked all three factions, killing bolvar in the process.

    Through that, when Alextranza came to purge the plague caused by the rebel forsaken, his body lit up in fire, but was captured by the scourge.

    Hence he ended up there.

    I thought he was motlen from the dragons that burned him, now cause of Lich King torturing him? Atleast that's what i think he said ingame in the end cutscene when you kill arthas

    He WAS tortured by the Lich King, but yeah, he was glowing like that because he was burned by the red dragonflight's fire.

    Funny thing, personally I think he might be the Cure for the forsaken, the undead plague was turning him undead, while the flame of the red flight is essentially a burning breath of life, so now the "life" in him is in a constant struggle with the Undeath,thus causing the immolation making him neither living nor undead. and don't bring physics into this! my fantasy Logic is not based on reality!
    I believe he will become a neutral faction should the game ever progress so far he needs to make a return.

    The theory was that without a Lich King to keep them in check, the Scourge would run rampant over the world and destroy it right? So why doesn't Bolvar, as the new Lich King and commander of the Undead, just create some large "last man (or undead in this case) standing" contest and let them destroy one another? If he then proceeds to not resurrect Undead further, the "race" will then go extinct? (Until you know, more necromancers decide to dabble in the arts...)

    Funny how if it wasnt for alexstraza and her red dragons maybe tirion fordring couldve been the next lich king

    As bolvar said "The dragons flame sealed my fate the world of the living can no longer comfort me"

    Though tbh if tirion did become the next lich king could he have become more powerful than arthas as the lich king ever could?

    Wouldnt it have been badass to see the lich king duel weld frostmourne and the ashbringer (obviously he would have to reforge frostmourne but still would be pretty badas)
