I miss all those times he would pop up out of nowhere and yell
"Next time Inspect...I mean Stom. I will get you!!!!
Your favorite end boss was Kel'thuzad?!?!
Are you insane? It was the most boring, horrible fight ever. You had that easy ass, impossible to fail phase 1 that took like 10 minutes of killing abominations to end. It was so pointlessly time consuming. By the time phase 2 started you were ready to gouge your own eyes out.
I like ponies and I really don't care what you have to say about that.
a ittle but draenor looks great

The rose tinting is strong in this thread.
Arthas during the questing was just stupid, he was over done and essentially played the role of Dr. Claw; "I'll get you next time, adventurer!"
He makes a brief and trivial appearance in Yogg's brain and yet another Dr. Claw moment in TotC and that was it before the patch you kill him.
The actual fight with him was good, but only in that it was a good challenge. Mechanically, he was rather dull.
WotLK was the pinnacle of wow. thru TBC and WotLK the game was in awesome place, immensely playable and FUN and interesting and addictive and had so many friends playing too,, the community was also a shit ton nicer than now, the community was what this game was all about for me, having to form your own groups was what made wow so awesome, now with LFR and LFG its just awful. but TBC and WotLK was the best time ive ever had playing a game
since then wow has become a chore, everythings gone to pot.. a boredom fest of uninterestness and blandness and rehashness (lots of ness ;p) im holding no hopes of WoD reigniting my passion for the game. too much crap has gone by since Cata.. the game will never be what it was for me even if WoD does end up being fukkin amazing, I doubt ill play like I used to...
- - - Updated - - -
all thru Cata you would never know DW was the baddy cos he never did chuff all really to let you know he was there, by the end I was like pfff I don't care for killing this cunt.. deathwing who??? same goes for MoP..
The lich king was, by far, the best portrayed villian in the series.
He had a great lead up since WC3, his presence was known in wow way before WotLK was released, and when he did appear, his presence across the vast wastes of northrend was felt everywhere, like he could be watching you, and could appear at any time. He toyed with us as adventurers, when he appeared, he just oozed power and fear, and having to fight though endless armies of undead climbing the massive pinnacle that was icecrown to face him on his throne, it was an epic feel to stand against him, fighting isolated at the top of the world.
Illidan was underplayed and his story was over quickly. Kil'jaeden popped out of nowhere so had no build up. Deathwing was made a joke of his character and just seemed ridiculous in the end, and Garrosh was just a disappointment of final boss and its outcome.
Yes, Arthas, the lich king, was the absolute best.
"When i am done with you, you won't trust your own mind."
I do enjoy the LK as a character though and am interested in seeing where they take the LK's character now that righteous Bolvar is the host. Looking forward to seeing him in the future again at some point. I just love how the Lich King always brings that long term strategy and deception to the table that other main villains in this game have lacked so far. Even Deathwing didn't show a fraction of the kind of foresight and planning that the LK did.

The generalist looks outward; he looks for living principles, knowing full well that such principles change, that they develop. It is to the characteristics of change itself that the mentat-generalist must look. There can be no permanent catalogue of such change, no handbook or manual. You must look at it with as few preconceptions as possible, asking yourself, "Now what is this thing doing?" -Children of Dune
The portrayal of Lich King in the game is so out of place it hurts.
His obese model and voice that doesn't make sense neither for Arthas (at all) or Ner'zhul was so distracting for me. It's just awful, it's way too deep and wannabe-evil.
They had the perfect voice: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2IvDjY3CtQ and then they fucked it up.
It felt like he had no real goal than being "the ultimate bad guy".
One dimensional caricature of his former self.

Strip out WC3 entirely. We're not playing WC3. We're playing WoW. Not WC3. Which isn't WoW.
What are you left with? A guy who all he does is "toy" with us, being beaten every step of the way, to finally encounter him where he toys with us again and we beat him anyway.
If your argument is due to his involvement in WC3, think about what you're saying for a second. WoW is so inept at telling its own story, you have to rely on another game entirely. That is abysmal story telling.
