They didn't ignore him at all! They came with Arthas to Stratholme and were prepared to fight Mal'ganis, but Arthas sent them away for refusing to murder everyone in the city.Arthas never even -considered- other options. He was sworn to protect his people, but pride and lust for vengeance made him blind to what he was doing. He tried to justify his own deeds by claiming "it was better to kill them himself" but in the end all he did was betray his oaths as a paladin and fall right into the Lich King's trap. The Scourge was created to break the human kingdoms, but the Lich King set Arthas up to become his tool right from the very start. He pushed Arthas further and further until he finally snapped at Stratholme where he abandoned the teachings of the Light and gave in to his desire for vengeance - by the time he got to Northrend, he didn't even care about his own men anymore.A -good- prince, and more importantly, a good PALADIN would've tried his best to save those who could be saved. Arthas chose the easy way out by condemning the entire city to death. He betrayed his people and his oath to the Silver Hand and damned himself all in one fell swoop.
