I think this is the right choice. Personally i wouldn't mind seeing him for some brief moments, maybe lending us some tips on how to deal with the Jailer or something, or bringing his soul to the Arbiter to be judged and see him peacefully move onto his judged covenant but nothing more than that.His story was and will be perfect. Exploring, detailing it further won't damage it.I love it!
My son. The day you were born, the very forests of Lordaeron whispered the name...Arthas...
I would love to see him as a tortured spirit grieving at what he had done now he is free of influence.
One day the one true king will rule again over the throne of Lordaeron.
Danuser is OBSESSED with Sylvanas. I don't think I'm going to like what he has to say.
I think it's better if they mention Arthas but we do not interact with him directly. I have a strong suspicion we are going to meet him but he's not going to become a relevant character like Illidan did in Legion. I like what they did with Illidan because I felt like his writing in BC was kind of lazy, so he being "re-worked" during Legion was wonderful. But as Danuser says, Arthas's story concluded with Wrath of the Lich King, so trying to force him back into the storyline would definitely feel forced and would probably ruin the character.
No thanks. I already hate what they did in Rise of the Lich King when they decided to make Ner'zhul less than a footnote of the Lich King's evil because they just could not stop the Arthas/human fangirling. I am not interested in anything Steve Danuser has to add. Removed
really can't tell this story without at least touching on him, it would feel like an elephant in the room
They already ruined his story with wotlk when he was turned into a scooby doo villain with no personality who got his place stolen by &*!@ing Bolvar
it's a shame if there is no Ner'zhul anywhere
Arthas is so overrated.
Arthas is too popular to only be mentioned in Shadowlands. Blizzard know that bringing Arthas back would likely even bring back players out of nostalgia. Saying that his story was finished in WOTLK is no excuse. Illidan's story was also finished in BC, and yet his return was seen as a great thing in Legion, and one of many reasons why the Legion expansion was a success. I expect Arthas to return, and he's going to play more than a cameo role. I want to see him interact with Uther, Jaina, Muradin, and Sylvanas.
My life for Ner'zhul
