    Bringing Arthas back in Shadowlands will ruin his character

    His story arc in complete in WOTLK. Bringing him back just sours his story and death. Illidan's story wasn't complete, Arthas was with his death. Let Shadowlands be about Bolvar don't let Arthas return in any way besides flashbacks and just one little cameo like he made in BFA

    I mean, if we see his soul getting shredded in the Maw as deserved eternal punishment for his being evil long before he ever sailed to Northrend, I'd be ok with that.
    Do not ask questions for which you do not want the answers.

    Well, so far we know that a) Arthas did get sent to the Maw and b) we're the second of two people capable of leaving said Maw, and Arthas is not one of them.

    So unless he gets freed during Shadowlands somehow, we have no reason to believe he isn't.

    I want him back. Arthas' story as The Lich King is complete.

    Arthas' story as a Paladin still has some meat the Blizzard hyena lore team can scrape off the bone.

    My assumption was that we'd be seeing him dangling there suspended all knocked out and then we view some old memories of his or something. I don't expect them to actually do anything with him critically.

    Except it was. Illidan got his ass kicked by Arthas, went mad, then subsequently fled to Outland (to avoid KJ's wrath) where he became the tyrant we killed in TBC.

    His character arc was about power corrupting even noble intentions, and his story was done. Turning him into a heroic character in Legion ruined him.

    The titles of Warchief, Leader of the Forsaken and Lich King are currently vacant. Arthas could be used for any of them. (I won't go over spoilers here)

I imagine a K'aresh ocean & maybe some islands contained in an eco dome or a snow-capped peak with some jungle valleys in another. Flesh version of Ethereals that never got altered. Space platforms as in Starcraft. Just a totally fantastic tileset & theme that I'd be very keen to explore. They could do some wild things.

    Arthas, Leader of the Forsaken and new Warchief of the Horde. I like it.

    The expansion is set in the afterlife. Whether it's Arthas or not, we're going to see characters whose story arcs have long since ended.

    Good to finally see someone who agrees with me on Illidan. Did not like him being brought back at all, and hopefully Arthas doesn't make appearance in Shadowlands either.

    Well get ready its happening.

    Warcraft is just Star Wars now, where every new iteration of a product is just fanservice pandering and, "zomg remember this!?"

    That's the same feeling I got as well. It's as if the writers were huddled together and were like "welp, we've gone to well of time travel a few too many times and screwed the pooch with WoD. How do we go about cherrypicking our favorites now? Oooh! How about if we invade the afterlife!"

    Shadowlands is all about banking on nostalgia. Seems Blizz is entirely unable to create new names, so they do Shadowlands, find a way to bring back tons of heroes/villains, and here you are ready for 15 other years of fighting Onyxia

    I disagree. Illidan's story in tbc was terrible, if we can even call it a story.

    Legion fixed it.

    If they bring him back it will be a tormented tortured souls in a cell in torghast not a main character

    Closure is not an option in the current culture.

    When we stop buying things because it has the guy we already know on it's cover, we can start getting stories that end again.
    So prepare for the shocking revelation that Arthas is actually Illidans half brother and has been playing all of us all along!!1.

    'If' they bring Arthas back, then I hope Calia is the one to put him down for the crimes he committed against their people. It would be a good way for Calia to be brought in as Queen of the Forsaken of Lordaeron.
