Lore

After Arthas Menethil reached Northrend, he and his men were beset on all sides from the Scourge. When Arthas met unexpectedly with his old friend Muradin Bronzebeard, he told Arthas of the runeblade's power, Arthas set out on a journey to find the Frostmourne thinking that the blade was the last hope he had of defeating the Dreadlord Mal'Ganis and saving his people.

When warned of the dangers of the blade's power by the remant guardians protecting it, Arthas slew them and soon came upon the sword's pedestal. On it, the inscription read:

"Whomsoever takes up this blade shall wield power eternal. Just as the blade rends flesh, so must power scar the spirit."

Muradin was now aware of the blade's curse, and told Arthas to turn back and return to his men. Fueled by vengance, Arthas paid no mind to Muradin's warning. The ice tomb surrounding the blade shattered; a shard struck Murdain but merely rendered him unconscious. Arthas threw aside his mace and claimed Frostmourne and any curse it held.

When Arthas returned to his base, he quickly led his men on a counterattack against Mal'Ganis. While wielding Frostmourne, Arthas easily defeated the Dreadlord. Mal'Ganis confidentaly told Arthas that the Lich King had planned for him to take up the cursed blade. In further accordance with the Lich King's command, Arthas killed Mal'Ganis and usurped his position.
 
The sword stole his soul, robbed him of his free will and compelled him to kill his own father.
