Arthas Menethil, The Lich King, is a Melee Warrior class hero in Heroes of the Storm that specializes in serving as a damage sponge in fights and in providing strong chasing potential in engagements. He was first introduced in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos where he was a playable Paladin who eventually, while under the influence of the mighty sword Frostmourne, turned into a Death Knight. He returned as a playable character in the expansion, The Frozen Throne during which events he turned into the Lich King. Eventually, he served as a boss in the World of Warcraft expansion Wrath of the Lich King. He was one of the initial 18 heroes in the Technical Alpha phase of the game.
