"Unlike Arthas, however, Ner'zhul turned his face away from ultimate evil once he recognized it for what it was."And this is why Ner'zhul should be the new (old) Lich King. Uther was probably wrong when he attributed the aspect of the Lich King holding back the Scourge to Arthas.Have the Lich King fight end with Ner'zhul's baby ghost avatar Matthias-counterpart thingy help utterly destroy Arthas' soul, then reaffirm control over the Scourge. All the Scourge are either killed, or recalled to Icecrown. Thall stays in Icecrown to help Ner'zhul recover, but then the Cataclysm comes and makes the northern oceans untraversable, cutting them off from the rest of the world. At Blizzcon '10, they announce that since then, Ner'zhul's created a series of new dark portals, and the fourth expansion will involve travelling to planets such as K'aresh to free them from the rule of the Burning Legion.

And then they can finally tell us where Turalyon and Alleria are. I like it! :)

Ner'zhul is evil. The point of the article is that he didn't used to be, but years of being a prisoner in his own political position, of being abandoned by the spirits and left "alone" on Draenor with the remaining Alliance Expedition closing in, TURNED him evil.He didn't just create new portals to find worlds to escape to, he wanted to conquer those worlds and regain the power he had in the early parts of the war on the Draenei.When Kil'Jaeden twisted him into the Lich King, he burned away whatever good remained. When Ner'zhul betrayed the Legion, he didn't do it to save Azeroth. He didn't withdraw all Scourge forces to Northrend and sink into quiet restitution.He betrayed the Legion because he wanted Azeroth for himself. And once the Legion was out of the way, he continued pressing his attacks against Lordaeron, and continued with his ultimate plot to free himself from the Frozen Throne by corrupting and then merging with Arthas.Likewise, nothing good remains of Arthas. The both of them are completely evil and completely fused together into the Lich King.The whole entity of the Lich King needs to die, then an entirely new one needs to take his place, one who will keep the Scourge in Northrend and run it into the ground until it's no longer a threat.
