- Notes and Trivia
The only son of Anasterian Sunstrider, king of Quel'Thalas, Prince Kael'thas was also a powerful mage and member of the Six, the shadowy high council of the Kirin Tor. Prior to the Second War, he and the other members of the high council questioned Khadgar about the orcs and the events in Karazhan that led to the death of Medivh. Two years later, Kael'thas alongside Krasus and Antonidas battled against death knights who came to steal the Eye of Dalaran. However, the death knights escaped with...
As a member of the Council of Six, Kael was present when Kel'Thuzadwas expelled from Dalaran. After a dramatic turn of events, the treacherous Prince Arthas ravaged his own homeland and led an attack on Quel'Thalas. His brutal conquest of the elven kingdom resulted in the utter destruction of Silvermoon City, the defiling of much of the high elven forests, the tainting of the legendary Sunwell (thus forcing a withdrawal-based lethargy on the elves), the total slaughter of around 90% of the hi...
The hunt for Illidan
Following the destruction of Silvermoon, Kael began to notice an emptiness within himself and his brethren, an insatiable hunger and disharmony. However, there was no time to deal with that, as Kael had other duties. Kael and his soldiers were stationed in the Silverpine Forest when a disturbance began to rile up the undead in and around Dalaran. They had begun to raid the outposts Kael had established, so he gathered up his forces to seek refuge in the relative safety on the other side of th...
Kael'thas and his downfall have been referenced several times since The Burning Crusade. Grand Magus Telestra, rumored to be Kael'thas' mentor, defected from the Kirin Tor to the Blue Dragonflight when Malygos reminded her of the unfair treatment Kael received while imprisoned in Dalaran. High Examiner Tae'thelan Bloodwatcher mentioned that the prince's statues still stand within Silvermoon City. He used Kael as an example of past mistakes he feels his people are still living in the shadow of and states that the time has come for this to change. Jaina Proudmoore conjured a vision of the Kirin Tor's past, citing Kael'thas as one of its greatest traitors. Aethas Sunreaver likened the callous leadership of Garrosh Hellscreamto Kael's own in the prince's insanity, viewing their methods similar and their potential effect on the sin'dorei as equally catastrophic; just as the blood elves broke away from Kael'thas, Aethas believed they must heed the lesson learned from the prince's downfall...
Kael'thas was a cunning and powerful mage, as well as a gifted tactician and an accomplished warrior. He was hailed as a true champion of the blood elf people and a defender of their race's ancient heritage, but eventually fell prey to the dark influences of Kil'jaeden while sojourning on Outland,having been enticed by the demon lord with the promise of salvation for his people. Proud and astute, the crown prince of Quel'Thalas could be both an amiable and a ruthless man. He proved himself approachable, but he also advocated drastic measures (such as the extermination of the lethargic orcs) that were at odds with the Kirin Tor's ethics. The prince was imposing to some and charming to others, and almost always regal and composed. The Third War's brutal aftermath had a huge effect on Kael, who would assume the mantle of leadership in his murdered father's place and find himself having to deal with the many problems his equally beleaguered people were faced with. Overcome with hatred f...
Before Kael left shattered Quel'Thalas, he managed to salvage the skull of his father, Anasterian, from the ruins of Quel'Thalas. The skull is among the artifacts that the red and green dragonflights thought would be needed to restore the Sunwell. Illidan gave him black plate armor. Flamestrikeremained in his possession. Kael was a wizard and fighter in the Warcraft RPG, which was changed to a mage and warrior in the World of Warcraft RPG.

This is the call of the paladin: to protect the weak, to bring justice to the unjust, and to vanquish evil from the darkest corners of the world. These holy warriors are equipped with plate armor so they can confront the toughest of foes, and the blessing of the Light allows them to heal wounds and, in some cases, even restore life to the dead. Ready to serve, paladins can defend their allies with sword and shield, or they can wield massive two-handed weapons against their enemies. The Light...
Creation screen description
Paladins do battle to protect the world from the forces of shadow. Powerful warriors in their own right, they can also call upon the Light to heal wounds, create shields of force, and incinerate evil creatures. Although paladins were once exclusively human, a number of stout-hearted dwarves have recently been welcomed into the Order of the Silver Hand. Paladins are champions who call upon the Light to heal wounds and combat evil. The draenei employed such holy warriors for millennia before ar...
Limited to the Alliance, Paladins are bastions of divine light, meting out justice with magic and might.
The first paladins may have been draenei, who were introduced to the Light by the Naaru after fleeing their home planet of Argus. Zandalari troll prelates are paladins who worship the loa Rezan.
Paladin stats vary by role. Secondary stats can be optionally obtained after primary stats have been met.
In PvP, the paladin's most well-known strength is his/her ability to outlast his opponent(s). With plate armor, their ability to heal themselves and allies, and a near-complete invulnerability every few minutes, they are a hard target to take down. Paladins can also do a surprising amount of burst-damage and have good access to stun abilities. Paladins also make great supporting characters, buffing and healing team-mates while being able to survive the enemy's attention. Paladins are particularly vulnerable to [Silence] and Interrupt effects, as all of a paladin's abilities are part of a single magic school (Holy). In addition, dispeleffects are powerful against paladins.
A paladin must be good and will lose all Light-given abilities if he ever willingly commits an evil act. Additionally, the paladin's code requires that he respect legitimate authority, act with honor (not lying, not cheating, not using poison and so forth), help those in need (provided they do not use their help for evil or chaotic ends), and punish those who harm or threaten innocents. While he may adventure with others from different organizations, a paladin will never knowingly associate with evil persons, nor will he continue an association with someone who consistently offends his moral code. A paladin may accept only henchmen, followers or cohorts whose intentions are good. A paladin who violates this code, becomes an ex-paladin, and loses all Light-given abilities until he atones for his violations.Their description during the Warcraft III alpha was as such: "The noble warriors of humanity employ both a strong military and powerful magics in the defense of their kingdoms.

Those now known as blood elves were once high elves. With the great power and protection of the Sunwell at their beck and call, the elven kingdom of Quel'Thalas thrived for a strong 7000 years. Masters of magic, and with a natural affinity for wielding it, the high elves championed the belief that they were the "sun blessed." They basked in the Sunwell's might, using it much like the Highborne they descended from used the Well of Eternity. Life for the high elves changed during the Third War, when King Arthas' Scourge attacked Quel'Thalas and shattered the elven race. The Scourge slew almost 90% of the high elven population, devastating their kingdom, and slaying King Anasterian Sunstrider. His son and heir, Prince Kael'thas Sunstrider, was thankfully studying magic in Dalaran at the time of the disaster and quickly rushed to his people's aid. He returned to find Quel'Thalas in ruins, and thirsting for vengeance, gathered the survivors and renamed them "blood elves" in honor of thei...
Ten thousand years ago, during the reign of the night elf Queen Azshara, there was an elite magic-using sect known as the Highborne, who dabbled in magics that many other elves considered heretical by drawing upon the power of the Well of Eternity. Fiercely loyal to their queen, the Highborne opened a number of portals under her direction that brought forth the Burning Legion, triggering the War of the Ancients. Sometime after the Great Sundering, most of the surviving Highborne were exiled from Kalimdor and settled in the eastern continent, founding the kingdom of Quel'Thalas. They became known as high elves. During this time, they created the Sunwell, and switched to a diurnal waking cycle. Their purple skin eventually faded to a pale peach color, like that of some humans and dwarves. Some sources imply this was a near-instantaneous transformation that occurred during the Sunwell's creation. The elves prospered for thousands of years in their enchanted kingdom, under the rule of t...
Blood elves are 5–6 feet tall. Blood elven males typically have slender, muscular, and athletic bodies. They also possess long pointy ears, acute senses and keen sight in the darkness. Night elves have long, slanted ears while blood elves' ears are shorter and tend to point upwards. Blood elven females can possess much the same, albeit typically sporting a slim elven physique. Like all elves, blood elves are considered highly attractive by the standards of most mortal races.They typically have fairly long hair, generally do not grow their facial hair to gigantic proportions until old age, and generally stand slightly taller than their human gender counterparts. As a general rule, blood elves are also slim, athletic, strong, and graceful. Furthermore, they all have large pointed ears that tend to be greeted with admiration (or mockery) by other races. Blood elves are, biologically and physiologically, high elves. Blood elves who were most loyal to Kael'thas Sunstrider were gifted by...
The term "blood elf" itself is a cultural identity: a show of respect and honor for the fall of the high elves, the destruction of the Sunwell, the near-annihilation of their kingdom, and their rebirth from its ashes. It is also a reference to their royal lineage - their bloodline. As a culture, the sin'dorei have retained the look and feel of their fallen high elven kingdom, though have developed a greater penchant for the color of crimson: the color of their namesake. Crimson-red robes, decor, and armor have become far more commonplace within blood elven society prior to the fall of the high elven people, a reference to the blood of their many brethren who had perished in the Third War. The iconic and traditional blood elven colors are red, gold, and to a lesser extent, blue – all of which can be seen on their racial crest, the Icon of Blood. In general, the blood elves are a proud, pragmatic, and somewhat jingoistic people; they place great emphasis on their love for their homela...
Prior to the Third War, Quel'Thalas was ruled as a monarchy, with High King Anasterian Sunstrider as the last high elven monarch. Anasterian's long rule, which lasted at least roughly 2,800 years, was complemented by the Convocation of Silvermoon, a high council of elven lords who had vowed to assist the Sunstriders in keeping Quel'Thalas safe. However, during the Scourgeonslaught, Anasterian was killed and the entire Convocation was eradicated. In the wake of the utter destruction of Quel'Thalas' leadership, Prince Kael'thas Sunstrider went on to become the sole leader of the newly named blood elves. Though still essentially a monarch, Kael'thas did not appear to officially take the elven crown, instead styling himself as the "Lord of the blood elves" and "The Sun King." Kael'thas decided not to revitalize the Convocation, and instead commanded Lor'themar Theron, the former second in command to Ranger General Sylvanas Windrunner, to act as Quel'Thalas' regent in Kael's physical abs...
The blood elves of today descended from the night elves. Though the sin'dorei style themselves as having been "reborn" from the ashes of the shattered quel'dorei, in biological essence the two groups belong to the same race.Blood elves are the hosts of several other newly-emerged races, each stemming from sin'dorei roots as the sin'dorei did from the kaldorei - though not by conventional means: 1. The Wretched - If a sin'dorei fails to control their addiction, they will often succumb to the thralls of it and gorge themselves excessively on power without thought for constraint. Physically warped from their elven appearance, this savage sin'dorei offshoot represents itself via a primal form of "society" and serves as a warning to the blood elves - if their magical addiction is not controlled, then this pitiful fate may await them. Though generally disorganized, some followed Kael'thas Sunstrider to the Isle of Quel'Danas, where the last of them were put to the sword. Ironically, Kael'...
In the December 2005 issue of Computer Gaming World, Metzen had said blood elves are not an evil race. Tensions from the aftermath of the Second War have become burning hatreds. The high elves officially withdrew from the Alliance after the Second War under the belief that not enough troops were sent to protect Quel'Thalas, and thus led to a needlessly engorged amount of slaughter and destruction. A few high elves remained under their own volition to continue serving the Alliance, but the loyalty of even these voluntary troops waned after the second sacking of Quel'Thalas by Arthas — who had recently destroyed his own kingdom — to which the remnants of the Alliance of Lordaeron took no steps in intervening. Finally, with Lord Garithos's dismissive treatment of blood elven troops and attempt to execute many blood elves for accepting boats from naga, even more fell under the sway of Kael'thas' new vision for his people. As a result, blood elves are fierce jingoists, believing that the...
The name sin'dorei may be a reference to Sindarin, the elvish language most commonly spoken in Middle-Earth during the Third Age in the Tolkien mythos. This, however, may not be the reference since...
Blood elves have no permanent settlements on Azeroth; the only blood elf communities are located in Outland, the extradimensional wasteland of Illidan's exile. Despite this, a number of them can be found at Quel'Danas under the leadership of Aquel'Luer'Thala.
Blood elven priests are more of a quandary, however, as comparatively little is known about their own outlooks on the Light. Some viewed the Blood Knights' opinion on the Light's abandonment as "folly," and continued to embrace it as priests and priestesses as the Light regardless of the new direction their society was heading in. Blood elves have green eyes, but a blood elf warlock in the TCG has purple eyes. Mages, paladinsand others have been seen with golden eyes. Furthermore, a blood elf mage is seen with glowing red eyes while casting an invisibility spell. Whether the eye color has any correlation with arcane, or the specific spell being used, is unknown.

Arthas: Rise of the Lich King
Prince Arthas Menethil was born to King Terenas Menethil II and Queen Lianne Menethil, four years before the start of the First War. The young prince grew up in a time when the lands of Azeroth were ravaged by war, the Alliancewas crumbling, and darker clouds still loomed on the horizon. As a young child, Arthas became best friends with Varian Wrynn and often sparred with him, though Arthas was less experienced. He also watched as his future steed, Invincible, grew up. As a youth, Arthas was...

By doing so, he lured powerful heroes to Northrend and placed many challenges befo...
Culling of Stratholme
1. Main article: Arthas (Stratholme)#Abilities
As a human, Arthas was a man of action - brave, impulsive and straightforward. He was an inspiring leader, leading his men by example and more than once leading charges in his campaigns against the Plague. In conversations with others, he appeared witty and easy-going, yet able to hold true to his decisions and convince others to accept them. At the same time, Arthas was vindictive, quick to anger, and exceptionally arrogant, often being reprimanded by Uther for his hastiness (as at Stratholme) and even naming his horse "Invincible" as (it is implied) a symptom of his self-aggrandizement.He never took well to losing and had difficulty admitting his mistakes. He always sought the approval of others (such as his father) and often felt underappreciated. He could not stand the thought of others betraying his trust, going as far as making Jaina promise never to deny him anything. After he murdered his father, Arthas claimed he no longer felt remorse, shame, or pity, which may be explaine...Arthas died at the age of 31.At some point, Arthas "blessed" some ground in Stratholme for the sacrifice and raising as a lich of Ras Frostwhisper.The fight between him and Illidanis the only time Arthas came close to dying before he became the Lich King.Before World of Warcraft: Chronicle Volume 3, after the Legion left to invade Kalimdor, Kel'Thuzad told Arthas about Illidan Stormrage.

In an alternate timeline visited by Thrall, Arthasnever became the Lich King. Instead, he married Jaina and became a father.An enemy named Lord Arrgthas appears in AdventureQuest. His description says he is "not a lich king just yet".In Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, both Arthas (as the Lich King) and Frostmourne (his guitar) are unlockable after earning 1600 stars and reaching level 71.Arthas appears in Snow Fight, a children's book written by Chris Metzen and illustrated by Wei Wang.Arthas is a playable character in Heroes of the Storm.
Arthas could be seen as a "reverse" version of King Arthur. Frostmourne is comparable to the Sword in the Stone/Excalibur, Ner'zhul (or Kel'Thuzad) could be seen as roughly equivalent to Merlin(the wizard figure behind the king), and Uther shares his name with King Arthur's father. In contrast to Arthur, Arthas destroyed a Camelot-styled kingdom and built its opposite. Arthas also has many similarities with Michael Moorcock's Elric of Melniboné character and his sword Stormbringer. Both are rulers who betray their own lands, and both are cursed by their runeblades. Hernan Cortes, a Spanish conquistador, made a very similar decision to Arthas in Warcraft III. When Uther convinced King Terenas II to send ships to Arthas' expedition in Northrend as a way to tell them to go back home to Lordaeron, Arthas decided to burn the ships to continue his campaign against Mal'Ganis. Due to half of his men protesting and wanting to go back to the mainland, Cortes decided to burn his ships until vi...
