Level / boss status doesn't really relate to strength within the lore.Dar'khan Drathir, the leader of the Scourge in Quel'thalas, was a major villain in the Sunwell Trilogy, a nearly immortal half-lich that was able to hold his own against Sylvanas, Halduron, Lor'themar, Jorad, Kalec, Tyri, and Krasus... simultaneously. And yet he's fodder for level 20 blood elves questing through the Ghostlands (and doesn't look nearly as cool in-game as he does in the books).I think they simply wanted people to be able to fight Anub'arak. His encounter is, in my opinion, a really good representation of him, and his instance is really short and cool. He might not have been a level ?? raid boss, but I think the instance does him justice.And, while I wouldn't rule out the possibility that he could return, I don't think it's likely that he'll be re-raised by the Lich King, as his dying words are something to the effect of, "Finally, I'm free of him..."
