Nope. He killed him with frostmourne, cinematic and all. Youtube search warcraft 3 human campaign outro.
" WAIT A SECOND!!! That trailer just showed Arthas killing his father as the Lich King. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if memory serves, Arthas killed his father before he found Frostmoune! "
Damn... A year later and the shit is about to hit the fan. Blizzard made their last expansion pack last a whole damn year! Not bad for $15 a month. Not bad at tall!
The big question is... When the Lich King falls, will Arthas fall too?
I think you deserve to be stabbed. Simply for the embolden lettering and use of the word "epic" "I apologize if my use of real words and the exclusion of 4chan meme pics has in any way confused or offended you. In the future I suggest you use an online dictionary to learn the meaning of words that intimidate you. I have a policy against posting stupid pictures so I'll have to communicate my message using just text.
" Haha wow, that trailer was epic. I was disappointed until I realized the spirit Terenes (his father).I think you deserve to be stabbed. Simply for the embolden lettering and use of the word "epic"
So far I've been very pleased with Icecrown Citadel, they have done a good job of making progressing through the dungeon feel more like an actual assault with a lot of cinematic moments and encounters. "
I stopped playing at level 60 and In the original game there was no in game cutscenes everything is told through quest text. Also adding 1 or 2 in game cutscnes I don't think makes WoW all of sudden some great story driven game.

I see a lot of haters here, frankly unjustified.
1. There have been trailers for wow patches for like 5 years now, this is not new. Welcome to the internet.
2. I can pretty much guarrantee that if you took Warcraft 3 Arthas at max level (with Frostmourne and all) and put him up against 25 non-hero knights, he would lose.
3. 12 million people playing this game doesn't say anything about whether this game is good or bad. It only proves this game is popular. Any of your comments about the player quantity, however, also do not prove if the game is good or bad. For that, you need to log in, play the game (preferably more than just run around naked), and then come here and write in your completely subjective terms what you liked or didn't like about the game. Until then, your argument is zero.
4. In my completely subjective opinion, the trailer is mediocre. They could have done a lot better than your standard "prepare to fight boss - fight boss - kill boss - rejoice" plotline, and they could have done a lot better than "hey look it's a massive army at my gates, all my teritory in Northrend has been lost, my castle is under attack, the spirits in my blade are likely going to wake up and backstab me, 90% of my undead army is now no longer undead, my allies have been thoroughly defeated and humiliated every day, my enemies have been organizing championships of who gets to kill me which i thoroughly failed to stop, BUT WHO CARES ABOUT THE DETAILS I CAN STILL KILL THEM. DURR.". You have to wonder if reducing Arthas to stardard-game-villain#54536 dumbs down the plot's credibility and complexity a bit.
And in my opinion based on 3 years of experience, WoW is a lot better MMO than any other out there. It's still an MMO though.
Whys the WoW hate?...
Pft... you are not prepared!
I have never played WoW, so it's very hard for me to imagine why anyone would get excited for something that looks this bad. But i guess that's MMO addiction for ya.
" @trimon said:Me too xD" Read it as Fail of the lich king XD "exactly the same as me, especially in how it looks in the trailer. fail is still correct in that context thou. "
Yes, yes they can. Haven't played in like, 2 years (stopped right before Burning Crusade) but damn, this is an awesome trailer. Makes me want to play again.
" Oh man, Blizzard, you can make a goddamn trailer! "
"Patch 3.3" may be the best subtitle ever.
Nice trailer won't go back to WoW untill the next Xpac. FROSTMOURNE HUNGEEEEEEEEEERRRRS for pancakes."
I think it looked pretty good for a patch trailer (they did one for the Sun Isle, too), but having seen it now, I know in reality what it really means to be a grunt among that setting. For me it involved running from one area to another and then back again while spamming heals on the tank and trying to maintain my mana regeneration...which I read is harder again with the pally nerfs. Ugh, just when I get a very slight inkling of going back someday, Blizzard kills it off again.
Nice trailer won't go back to WoW untill the next Xpac. FROSTMOURNE HUNGEEEEEEEEEERRRRS for pancakes.
Now only if this was rendered in CG, "Frostmourne Hungerrrrrssss!"
Could not be more wrong. Millions of tickets in sale for movies like Transformers 2 and G. I. Joe does not automatically mean they are good entertainment, but it is rather likely that people have bad taste. Should've quit while you're ahead.
"Actually thats not proof of that at all. What it is closer to actually proving, is that things aren't bad just because YOU think they are. When it comes to entertainment, if a lot of people are watching the movie/playing the game/reading the book/listening to the music, chances are it IS good, regardless of if you like it or not. Also, owned. "
I really enjoy the fiction of Warcraft, its definitely found a nice little place in my heart. WoW was something I put huge chunks of time in like millions of other people, but like what has been mentioned, the player base really detracts me from continuing to play it. I would love to play with people that appreciate the game as I do, but the MMO crowd kinda scares me sometimes. Now its just single player games for me. Cool trailer though, almost makes me want to go back... almost.
Alright, I'm kinda tired of seeing some of you bitching about wow, without knowing what you're talking about
@SuperSecretAgenda: As I said before, Arthas is dead already. Players in WoW "stabbed" his heart in a special and somewhat epic questline. It is only The Lich King that inhabits the body of Arthas, and there will always be a Lich King, so he might return again. And yes, he might be easy to kill on normal-mode but now that they invented the hard-mode system I doubt that many are gonna kill him the first 2-3 weeks, since its hard, really hard.
He is considered weakened in WC3:TFT because Illidan was trying to destroy The Frozen Throne. When Arthas stopped Illidan in doing that and became The Lich King he reclaimed his power.
@jakob187: It was probably easy because it was normal mode. They made normal mode so everyone could see and experience the instance. You can go hard-mode if you want a challenge. And, you can't get Frostmourne, but something similair: Shadowmourne.
The haters are out in force, I see. Myself, i'm a firm believer that if a game entertains a bunch of people then good for those people and good for the developers responsible.
That's also one hell of a trailer. I expect a lot of companies wish they had some of that editing talent on hand when it came time to make their own game's trailer.
Oh man, Blizzard, you can make a goddamn trailer!
Kind of makes me think of Frostmourne as the new Master Sword
All this does is make me want Warcraft 4.
Looks a little like LOTR: The Two Towers shot at the end.
" Read it as Fail of the lich king XD "exactly the same as me, especially in how it looks in the trailer. fail is still correct in that context thou.
finally this fucking douche dies
hated him ever since WCIII
The story of Warcraft was better served when it was a RTS it's hard to care about it in WOW when it's all through text boxes.
Warcraft has an epic storyline. You could easily make a trilogy of films about it.
Blizzard has never ruined Warcraft Lore. It's their own universe (although copied in most aspects.. heh) and they can do what they want with it.
I'm more excited for The Old Republic... WOW is old news.
You know, its funny how many people hate WoW here in Giantbomb yet its the second most played game, but yeah its gonna be awesome too bad we got to wait like 3 months to fight Arthas lol
Guess I'll have to watch the Arthas fight on youtube since I don't have a subscription anymore. Even I did, well.... I wouldn't get back into raiding.
Saw my buddies raiding IC last night. Looks alright, but they downed three bosses in less than two hours. Kind of a joke. Waiting to see the Arthas fight. Personally, I think it's bullshit that you can attain Frostmourne and not have any negative repercussions for doing so.
" ... Arthas should not be killable. In fact, he should be impossible to kill. Because 25 guys shouldn't be able to solo him. The guy is considered 'weakened' in Warcraft 3: TFT, and still kicks ass. If he's at full power, 25 guys shouldn't stand a chance against him or his army of the dead. "25 man solo?
