Why Hearthstone’s Frozen Throne expansion matters to Warcraft fans
To understand why people care about frozen throne, have to go back to Warcraft III. It’s hard to remember these days, with the success of World of Warcraft and home stone, but the franchise was once in the real-time strategy game. Warcraft III was a big hit when it was released in 2002. It featured heroic units, an idea that custom map makers used to create the MOBA type.
Warcraft III, but also expanded the franchise tradition, with new characters like Illidan, the demon hunter and the human wizard Jaina Proudmore. He also introduced us to Arthas.
Arthas was a human prince and a paladin. Much of the plot in Warcraft III revolves around his initial quest to save his kingdom from a plague of undead, a quest that would eventually lead him to take the cursed sword Frostmourne and become a commander of the knight’s death by himself Army dead death
The Frozen Throne campaign focuses on finding Arthas in Northrend and joining the Lich King. The origins of the Lich King are a bit complicated.
Burning Legion, an intergalactic demon army that wants to destroy entire worlds, transformed the spirit of a dead orc shaman, Ner’zhul, into the King Lich. His job was to raise mortal armies and control with telepathy.
Ner’zhul was sitting on the frozen ice making throne sitting on top of a peak in north-eastern peninsula Nothrend.
Arthas Ner’zhul screamed, asking him to join the Ice Throne and release at the same time that he based himself as a being that can destroy things without having to respond to the Legion.
Arthas continues to do this, breaking part of the Ice Throne with Frostmourne and donning the inner armor. Arthas and Ner’zhul then merge into a King Lich. The Ice Throne ends with the image of the King Lich sits on the Ice Throne
At first, players have not yet heard of Arthas while Warcraft has become the new online world. We were fighting the dragon and we traveled to the wrecked Outland planet to fight Illidan, but did not leave the King Lich. It was the biggest question asked by Warcraft III. Players have speculated that Blizzard should address this.
And he would. Blizzard has revealed that the second expansion of World of Warcraft players lead to Northrend and the journey against the Lich King (who is also often called Arthas at that time, Ner’zhul half ignored).
The expansion also introduced the first new class since its release, the Death Knights. The death knights of ice use magic, summon the monks-dead and heal with the blood of their enemies.
The wrath of the Lich King was a great success and helped propel World of Warcraft turn most popular among subscription numbers peaking at 12 million by the end of the Lich King campaign in 2010.
Many players still enjoy Wrath of the Lich King, with polls often cast as game expansion. The Death Knight was a great new class, Pip was a beautiful new continent and they understood the conclusion of Warcraft III.
Arthas appear at random to confuse players through Wrath of the Lich King, but players were not able to fight until the Citadel Ice Crown incursion entered into force in late 2009. The citadel of the Crown Ice Crown is A large Arthas tower was built around the Pic holding the Ice Throne.
To join Arthas the summit, groups of 10 or 25 player players had to fight along the way, going against memorable bosses like Mad Scientist, Professor Putricide and Sindragosa Dragon, Undead.
Learning and mastering the fighting could take months, but the reward for patience and good play was a final test against Arthas at the top of the Ice Crown Citadel. Here the King Lich descends from the Ice Throne and would fight the players.
At the end (and with a little aid paladin Tirion), to defeat Arthas, and a new King Lich, Bolivar Fordragon, sitting on the frozen throne to prevent dead dead hordes to become the stirrups.
