Warcraft lore does die with Arthas, I'm sorry to say. Aside from Illidan, I don't remember another villain in the original Warcraft series.I don't read the books. I play the games. Nobody will care aside from the biggest of fanboyz and girlz.

Unfortunately, he's right to an extent.Enemies invented in an mmo don't carry much weight, since it's known from the beginning that they were designed to be hunted down by the players. Taking someone down that existed in another medium (aka , now that carries a little more significance.On the other hand, wow has been around long enough that perhaps it can generate its own legitimacy.I won't mind if they bring back Gul'dan, even though I normally hate that sort of thing. I'm not sure about the lore plausability of it, though.

Yeah, seeing as Illidan nommed on his skull his chances of showing up as anything more substantial than a shade is unlikely. And considering the forces that killed him his soul probably got destroyed as well.

Deathwing, Sargeras, and Kil'jaeden (Take two!) are still out there and all three have been in Warcraft lore for a lot longer than Arthas. Even Azshara, while never appearing in a game, has been known about for as long as the Lich King.
