Another Northrend-related question then.. about the Lich King. Does he/it have any special powers? I mean.. it's some sort of odd combination of human body + corrupted (?) orcish soul + demonic armor. I mean, I am sure he will have all sorts of shadow/frost related stuff going on as a boss fight, but lore-wise, did we see him do anything other than melee with Illidan?I seem to remember at least some of the Lich King's power actually comes from Frostmourne itself. Didnt the sword 'tempt' Arthas to come to it?Another question, concerning some of the non-playable Azerothian races. Especially the Kalimdor ones. As an Alliance player, I don't remember getting much lore concerning centaurs and quillboar. Is there a particular reason why both these are kill-on-sight? Especially the centaur look to be reasonably intelligent beings that aren't necessarily 'evil'. I understand they are historical enemies of the Tauren, but are there any redeeming qualities to these guys? The quillboar look to me like a slightly dimwitted, but very shamanistic/naturalistic society. They may be in territorial conflict with the new Horde, and some of them are under control of the Scourge, but it seems they do have a few things in common with the Tauren.. again.. is there anything good to say about the little pigmen?Oh, and this just popped in my head... what's the deal with the gnome robot in Serpentshrine Cavern? Are we to assume there is an evil faction of gnomes in cahoots with Queen Azshara and/or Vashj?

Arthas presumably would be able to weild the combined powers of a shaman, warlock, paladin, and death knight. Maybe a few more powers thrown in. The old RPG Monster Guide gives a rundown of his abilities and fighting style, but it may not be something one should consider canon.The centaur are essentially barbarian conqueror abominations, descended from the breeding of an Elemental Lord and a Demigod. They're reasonably intelligent, sentient, and all, but they're basically just filthy, savage, brutal warmongerers.The quilboar are similar to kobolds and gnolls. Not particularliy intelligent who are fighting for their land. And yes, some have joined the Scourge and/or are working with the Grimtotem.The Quillboar
