Is this some sort of secret? I mean, there's stuff on everyone but him. BobNamataki (talk) 21:18, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

He is the end boss after all. The end boss normally takes extra time to fine tune. Plus, he's the pinnacle of the expansion and the developer's want him to remain a secret. --SFSig-2009 22:47, November 14, 2009 (UTC)
He hasn't been seen on the PTR. Nor will he (Blizz tends to not publicly test the last boss of a raid --Coliseum excluded). Since the line we draw on datamined content is "stuff that has been seen in unmodified game clients", we can't post anything. Yet. --k_d3 22:48, November 14, 2009 (UTC)
Is he on the PTR? Because we had a lot of content added recently.

I'm not going to probably get to see Arthas. I can accept this if someone posts the dialogs. Hope to see it in a few weeksOakpack4 (talk) 04:45, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

If I read the news right, try another four months. --Joshmaul (talk) 04:28, December 10, 2009 (UTC)
Could somebody cite the blue post mentioned? Oakpack4 (talk) 22:01, December 15, 2009 (UTC)


A new machinima cutscene like the Wrathgate one will be played immediately after his defeat.Orisai (talk) 03:18, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, and until tomorrow such content is DNP. User:Coobra/Sig4 03:23, February 2, 2010 (UTC)
Until someone beats him, actually. Which, while it probably will be tomorrow, is by no means certain. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 09:04, February 2, 2010 (UTC)
The cinematic, like the Wrathgate cinematic, is an AVI file in the game directory (Data/[locale]/Interface/Cinematics/WOW_FotLK_[resolution].avi). I doubt that posting a transcript of an easily accessible video clip qualifies as datamining, so I'll add it there. - Sikon (talk) 04:51, February 4, 2010 (UTC)


Any admins online to mark this page as high priority for edits? I REALLY want to see the dialog, I'll get a link to the cutscene as soon as I see it on youtube or any other video sites. I'll be checking up every few hours. Oakpack4 (talk) 22:45, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

If people add content, they add content, we don't mark pages to have a higher priority. User:Coobra/Sig4 23:11, February 2, 2010 (UTC)
The answer is no because, while the encounter is technically in the game, it hasn't been seen on live servers yet and any information regarding it is a result of datamining. As soon as someone beats Sindragosa and starts fighting the Lich King we can start adding the dialogue, and as soon as someone beats the Lich King we can add the cutscene. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 23:12, February 2, 2010 (UTC)
I've pulled the DNP notices from the page. Post away. --k_d3 23:43, February 2, 2010 (UTC)
The admins seem to be rather inconsistent with their rulings on this. PCJ said yes, Gourra said no, you're saying yes... Which is it? -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 00:15, February 3, 2010 (UTC)
If it hasn't been seen in-game, it's not to be posted. If the Lich King hasn't been defeated, the aftermath shouldn't be posted. --User:Gourra/Sig2 00:18, February 3, 2010 (UTC)
The cutscene should wait (nobody's killed him yet). Also because Blizz has already C&D'd Bibi's posting of it... However, I'm most likely going to link it some time tomorrow (after Europe comes up) as it is sitting unprotected in our Data/<locale>/Interface/Cinematics directory...
If you've got tactics, feel free. People are wiping on him as I type this. ;) --k_d3 00:33, February 3, 2010 (UTC)
I've heard reports of him being killed as of 4:20 PM PDT 7:20 PM PDT. If we confirm this can we get it up? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Oakpack4 (talkcontr).
If there's a confirmed kill, yes. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 01:37, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Can an admin revert back the articles and recreate the files that were deleted?

Abilities and StrategyEdit

OK so should we just begin writing strategy from what we observe of the encounter on the kill video? I'm assuming it will be a little while before we have exact numbers on all of the abilities... JakeARoonie (talk) 18:05, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

You can add few lines about the val'kyrs taking members away, the falling ground and whatever else you know :)
IconSmall Hamuul Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 18:22, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
On the abilities, I'm not sure how to get the little images up next to the abilities like what's on other raid bosses... Thaddius for instance. Just not sure how to browse the icons saved on this site to find the ones that match with Wowhead's icons.

Lich King's EnrageEdit

In the kill video, the Lich King makes his "enrage" quote (Face now your tragic end) and kills a few people before casting Fury of Frostmourne. It appears that his enrage is a buff to his damage output, not a one-shot kill-all thing like Fury of Frostmourne. Can anyone confirm this? Want to check before I correct the statement about his enrage timer in the article. JakeARoonie (talk) 02:59, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Loot typesEdit

This is probably more of a whole wiki standard that needs changing, but shouldn't every item with "melee" in the description actually say "physical." The crossbow's being the best example.. oh well. ~ catbeef (talk) 19:40, February 9, 2010 (UTC)


There's enough video's of him being killed, dang people... SandersP (talk) 21:18, February 20, 2010 (UTC)


Hardest Icecrown boss? He's probably the hardest boss in the game. BobNamataki (talk) 13:07, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Depends how you compare it. Mimiron's easy mode is arguably a much harder fight than Lich King's easy mode. A fight's difficulty usually spikes depending on the number of opportunities for failure or diminished margin of error, and most importantly the amount of individual raid responsbility necessary to complete the fight. Lich King's hard mode can very easily rank very high up on the difficulty rankings considering the increase in raid responsibility and the unbelievably high damage output, causing healers to feel the pain of child labor all fight. Though I would consider Yogg+0 even harder still, but opinion. Furinaux (talk) 01:06, June 22, 2010 (UTC)


When Teranas rezzes the entire raid after Arthas smacks 'em all down, does that include people who died earlier in the fight as well? Or just the people who were alive when the boss hit the magic 10% mark? Tanooki1432 (talk) 23:34, March 18, 2010 (UTC)

Every dead corpse, what ever the reason of its death is, present on the platform (that means no val'kyr-dropped people) will be rezzed.
IconSmall Hamuul Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 08:26, March 19, 2010 (UTC)
Also is it possible to bubble/ iceblock and survive the attack? What would happen if you did?--Sheffi (talk) 12:12, March 19, 2010 (UTC)
Not sure exactly what the reason for doing so would be. You'll be auto rezzed a few seconds later, and since it's supposed to happen, my guess is that there's no durability loss, although that's just a guess as I haven't gotten there yet. Tanooki1432 (talk) 13:29, March 19, 2010 (UTC)
In the Phase 4 section, it says that if the raid decides NOT to take the rez, Tirion Fordring will kill the Lich King in about an hour... Did someone actually sit there and see how long that takes???? Tanooki1432 (talk) 16:24, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
That was written by Nitros14.

His last phrase before dying, "Now I stand, the lion before the lambs... and they do not fear... The cannot fear". I'm pretty sure I've heard it somewhere else, probably a movie.Orisai (talk) 23:20, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
Actually, I was dropped off the side last night due to a bad defile and did not release. I got the resurrection from Terenas. I've edited the entry to reflect that.

Harvest Soul Edit

There's a fair few entries on this move. Can someone with a good idea of what's what polish it up? Identified so far as: - channelled spell cast on player. - debuff on the player inside Frostmourne. - 2 buffs on the LK, 10% per stack stacking to 10 and a 200% increase for 15 sec if the player inside Frostmourne carks it.

... or something.

Rei-gouki (talk) 06:47, May 28, 2010 (UTC)


What is WoWWiki's policy on dialogue that exists in the game files but isn't played in the game? There are a few lines in his quote section that I know were recorded (you can hear them on YouTube, among other places), but which aren't actually used in the encounter. Egrem (talk) 07:23, September 7, 2010 (UTC)

I guess it falls under DNP, because you cannot access them Live or PTR

I've tried to get the thumbnail to show on the page, an easy link the to the LK diagram showing a way to handle Valks and Defiles. I can't figure it out. Please someone get the thumbnail to show. Both the diagrams are mine, and I give this Wiki permission to use them.
