A banshee? No, he was a LICH ever since he was revived via the sunwell. Sylvanas Windrunner was the one who became a banshee when Arthas killed her and then raised her up as one. Morberis (talk) 19:45, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
A lich a powerful undead sorceror, possessing tremendous magical power That sentence proves my point.
I think he is told to be a lich because he regained his will on his own without the intervention of Sylvanas or any other forsaken. In fact liches as kel'thuzad seem to remain loyal to ner'zhul though preserving indipendent will and thought in their undeath. Any opinion, idea? --N'Nanz (talk) 19:37, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
