the Ashbringer... **SPOLIERIFIC! DON'T LOOK!**The suggestion proposed that the blade clensing when thrown to Tirion as a sign of Darion's alliegence change is probably the most logical/symbolic answer. People have complained after doing that event that they still really didn't understand how the DK's could leave Arthas so uneventfully.If you put it into the perspective that one of Arthas's protege's, possibly the greatest DK aside from the Lich King himself, "saw the light" and turned, that could be significantly awe inspiring for all the soliders and DK's under Darion to follow their commander to fight for their eventual redemption as they saw Ashbringer come back to the light and to life.The whole event is more symbolic than with which the masses would be pleased, but rationalizing it, I feel better about that whole scenario now.As for what's under LHC, one could only speculate. As the Ashbringer will probably have its story revised for the comic, WotLK, AND for whatever quests the player will do to eventually GET the Ashbringer, one could argue that someone of importance's ashes are under LHC.HOWEVER, I don't think the ashes would 'fit' to be Terenas Menethil II's or Uther the Lightbringer's as BOTH were killed in cold blood by the DK Arthas. To argue that they somehow make him lose his powers after he murdered them could suggest a curse, but that would continue to be speculative. I'm honestly still REALLY hoping they'll bring back Lothar somehow, and that's whose ashes are under LHC, as he was basically the 'man' prior to his death.It also could be something with Calia Menethil, Arthas's sister, but I could continue like this all day. Everything's just as much speculation as the last. Ironically enough, I've enjoyed some of the player theories much more than the actual lore at points. App to be lore writers for Blizz!! ;P
