    Having watched an uncompressed version of the video, I see what people are seeing now - was literally 'blink and you miss it'. I initially thought that people were saying the shot of him before he heads up the stairs was Arthas (that's the shot the link shortcuts to) and I sat here like... how the hell does anyone think that is Arthas.

    If you look at the hair when he's going up the stairs, it is Anduin's hair. Arthas' is slick and all one length where as Anduin has... bangs/layers? that are still visible as he goes up the stairs. But for some reason he is missing the brown cloak that he has before heading up, and is still wearing at the top.

    That's definitely a production error. Its like they switched to the standard version of his model, then switched back to the cloak at the top. I'm honestly surprised that got past Terran Gregory & crew.
    The amount of people who are supposedly over WoW/hate WoW, yet continue to spend every day of their lives whining about it here on the forums, never fails to astound me.

    Now the question is: what could it be alluding to? We already had the parallel with Anduin entering Lordaeron the same way Arthas down to the exact same frame. Maybe those few seconds are referencing Arthas climbing the Frozen Throne, like the second cinematic with Saurfang and Sylvanas referenced Angrathar?

    I mean , we all noticed that at blizzard they have Arthas in mind constantly with all the references they have been placing here and there , but this is just too weird
    I think that is more selective thing. I see Anduin's model. There is various impressions of light and animation but I see Anduin's model.

    If that is Arthas's model, it wasn't a slip. It's such a short, obscured angle scene that they could have used Arthas's model to save on time and money when animating it since they already had those assets and probably used it as a placeholder when first animating it until Anduins model was ready and then realized it didn't matter for that specific scene.

    Well idk if its me but..... you can see the hammer in the left hand and yeah.... just put the video on 0.25. Its not Anduin its Arthas model. Or maybe blizzard did it, because you know the entire scene its a WC3 reference...... the horde banner, the storm, the remnants of the past// the chains of the past, yara yara.

    I'm not sure if it's Arthas' model but there is definitely something glowing behind his backside on the left side of his body as he walks up the stairs that isn't there prior to or after ascending the stairs.

    Now, perhaps it's from the flashes of lightning playing tricks on your eyes but even that as an explanation is a stretch.
    The thing is they've been doing this a lot over the course of the expansion, it's either an eye tease of "what could have been" for Arthas or it's a "this is his path" for Anduin. It's like when he was walking down to confront Sylvanas in the Battle for Lordaeron. They're doing a lot of Arthas eye candy for viewers with CGI this expansion. I wouldn't be too surprised if they try to pull off "the ghost of Arthas is enhancing Anduin's Holy Power" with some kind of "I got you back Sylvanas" garbage.

    Just slow it down and you easily see its Anduin, its the same colored cloak with same pattern as Anduin has when jumping of the Horse and at the top of the tower, it just start to glow a little blueish when he walks through the moon light.

    They have had allusions to Arthas several times when it comes to Anduin. Like when the Alliance walk into UC during the attack Anduin mirrors Arthas' moves from Warcraft 3.

    Just so it's more clear:

    There's a few seconds before I start framing through, but you can very, very clearly see that this is anduin's model, with his double cuff thing and the little bits of cloth sticking out to the side, particularly at the end it is crystal clear.

    They're both human and both a bit stiff in their animations so I suppose they could be reusing some old assets with a new coat of paint. Not that I noticed or have a problem with it myself. Stuff like that happens all the time, while you could mistake the two from each other in bad lighting and in similar clothing, they're really not, nor does Arthas appear in this video.

    While I do see anduins model, the animation and lighting puts him squarely in a fixation that resembles Arthas in silhouette. It's also a reference to Arthas' ascension of the spire in Icecrown when he becomes the new Lich King. I highly doubt it was simply coincidental in any way.

    I'm not saying it isn't a potential reference one way or the other, just that it is very firmly Anduin's model.
