Fall of the Lich King Ending

  • Published: 07 May 2011
  • After years of tyranny and suffering, Arthas' reign as the Lich King has come to end.

    In reward for their service, players who defeat the Lich King encounter in Icecrown Citadel will bear witness to this epic in-game cinematic and learn the fate of some of Azeroth's most notable heroes. This video can also be replayed in-game after the Lich King's death when players inspect the fountain's plaque in the center of the floating city of Dalaran in Northrend.

                    wasn't it said/implied in W3 that the undead are made by the lich king? in other words: no lich king = no "magic" to awaken the dead?!

                                          These comments give me a headache. The scourge must be controlled thus there must always be a Lich king (the quote's right here, in this bloody video), and now they will run rampant. I am not defending Blizzard's writing, I agree it's been downhill since Wrath, but using misinformation to make a "joke" is just boring and it's not even a joke, it's basically this: https://i.imgur.com/6kGliTj.jpg

                                                              Ya know, after watching the Shadowlands cinematic and watching this, I feel like that isn't Bolvar speaking. Unless his vocal chords were burnt with the rest of his body, he doesn't sound like that. Or at least, in the Shadowlands cinematic, he doesn't sound like this. It's possible that this "Jailer" guy was speaking through Bolvar, and maybe that's why he spoke in third person towards the end. "Tell them only that the Lich King is dead, and that Bolvar Fordragon died with him."
