Roleplayers have known for a long time Blizzards devs don't really care about lore that much, it is a secondary afterthought at best. As you pointed out in the article, why do these relics, supposedly gathered from people who never set their foot on Northrend, have amazingly undead-themed staves, maces and bows? Right, I gather they'd get glossed over with ice in a few years but I really don't think Antonidas would have had a staff that looked like it belonged to a long dead Nerubian.

Roleplayers have also known for a long time that many so-called "roleplayers" don't have the imagination the Light/Elune/puzzle piece space Jesus/insert divine entity of choice here gave them and are constantly QQing over nothing.

If you read the article yesterday where the designers talked about the LK loot, they specifically mentioned that they wanted the players to have access to all the weapons Arthas has picked up and then corrupted during his life. So it makes sense he would have these neat weapons from The Silver Hand and Quel'thalas, seeing as he was once a prince and did a fair amount of conquering in his day.The key word here is "corrupted". I imagine that even the holiest of weapons can only sit so long in the Lich King's company before it starts to become unholy, remember they've been sitting there for a good couple years now.

Yep, they're supposed to be corrupted. Doesn't excuse the non epicness of their appearance but explains the 'Northrend' look to an extent.
