World of Warcraft: Is Arthas Menethil In Shadowlands? from buzai232's blog

The newest and eighth WoW expansion, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, has finally arrived, taking adventurers through the various realms of the afterlife. While the biggest story points focus on characters like Sylvanas Windrunner and the Jailer, players will encounter at least one of the Lich Kings, Bolvar Fordragon, early on. But since Shadowlands focuses on death, does that mean players should expect to see both Bolvar and the previous Lich King, World of Warcraft's Arthas Menethil, in the game?To get more news about buy wow classic gold, you can visit lootwowgold official website.

During the pre-launch event for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, Bolvar had an important role. Sylvanas confronted and defeated the Lich King and then shattered the Helm of Domination, effectively setting up all the events for the main expansion. Not long after, Bolvar (and players) go to the Shadowlands to try to stop Sylvanas.
After venturing to the realms of the afterlife, players are first introduced to the Maw, a location that serves as World of Warcraft: Shadowlands' endgame. Although events cause players to leave the Maw upon first arriving in Shadowlands, they'll eventually be brought back to the zone by the expansion's end. Famously, Arthas Menethil was cast into the Maw after his death as the Lich King over a decade ago. Because of this, fans speculated that Arthas could be in the new WoW: Shadowlands expansion.

The Maw primarily serves as Shadowlands' endgame content, so it makes sense that WoW's Arthas Menethil will be there. Most of this will likely relate to Sylvanas, since she was killed by Arthas in Warcraft 3 before Arthas resurrected her. Since Sylvanas is such a major character in WoW: Shadowlands, with such a storied history with Arthas, then it makes sense he'll show up at some point.

Close to the beginning of the endgame content for Shadowlands, Sylvanas reveals her plans to change the way the afterlife works. While her reasoning isn't completely explained (Sylvanas is still Sylvanas, after all), it certainly opens the door for players and Sylvanas to meet World of Warcraft's Arthas Menethil again. It's reasonable to assume Arthas will appear at some point in Shadowlands, even if it's in a future update after launch.

An iconic character like Arthas Menethil will surely appear in the expansion at some point. He's already been sent to the Maw, so it makes sense that players would run into him there. However, it may be that his appearance is being saved for after the initial events of the game, since that would be a huge reveal. If Arthas isn't in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, it will be a major missed opportunity. Chances are good, though, that he'll finally show up at some point.
