I still get shivers when I think of the first time (only about 6 months ago) I stood in the throne room in the ruins of Lordaeron, with my headphones on and ambient sound turned way up, and heard the ghosts of Arthas and his father...and Arthas's cold, "succeeding you, FATHER" right before the betrayal with the sword....brrr goosebumps.And I've been playing the game for years by this point, and rather sick to death of Northrend and everything Lich King-related, but that brought it all home to me again, the scope of the story, the years, the pain. Then to stand in that same throne room and see the blood stains on the floor, and the faint echo of the bell tolling in the courtyard, there are really no words for it.After that I went to King Menethil's tomb and paid my respects, and finally rode out to the empty grave where Invincible used to lay, before Arthas reanimated him. And yes, being somewhat of a lore geek, I took screen shots along the way.It made me so sad, in a way that just playing the game and running the instances never did. Ever since then when I think of Arthas I just get this pain in my heart, that he hurt so many people only to lose everything in the end.

Where did Invincible lie? I haven't heard of that bit of lore.

He was buried at the Balnir farmstead in Tirisfal Glades, close to the Bulwark. If you go there you can still see his empty grave, with a marker on the stone that reads, "INVINCIBLEBeloved steed of Prince Arthas MenethilLoyal and great of heart in life, may you find peace in death.Pure streams and green pastures, devoted friend."Oh lord now I'm sniffling again.
