Sometimes when reading these articles, I totally have to pull a Keanu Reeves and say, "Whoa." I love this stuff and you (Anne Stickney) have done a great job writing this stuff up. I might have to bill you for the acetaminophen that I have had to consume to headaches, though :P.The part about the Lich King is intriguing. Especially considering Uther's revelation or theory in Halls of Reflection that possibly the only thing holding back Azeroth's annihilation by the undead was the remnant of Arthas' humanity: "I suspect that the piece of Arthas that might be left inside the Lich King is all that holds the Scourge from annihilating Azeroth."Could Ner'zhul be in a similar state? For some reason, I cannot let go of the minute chance that he could come back in some way. Maybe his soul was also released when Frostmourne was shattered and Arthas was killed.

Okay, let's pretend Ner'zhul didn't die and indeed his spirit was released when the Frostmourne was shattered. It went to where? Ner'zhul has no body anymore, not even a corpse like the Forsaken had, not even a pile of ashes. His body was dematerialized, shattered in a molecular level in thousand pieces. So, we have a spirit roaming around with no corpse. Isn't that pretty much the same as being dead? ;)

Somehow this got put at the bottom of the page when I replied:Ner'zhul is nothing if not resilient. Plus he has commanded a vast amount of power as a shaman, warlock, and the Lich King. Hell, with what happened to Kael's body when he was "killed" in TK tells us that with enough power, will, and an avenue someone can come back.

A wandering spirit sounds like a ghost to me. Ghosts can kill in Azeroth so he would only have to kill someone and take over its body like a Forsaken (difference is that it's not his own body while the Forsaken claimed the body they had in life)

Don't forget that you don't have to be stuffed into your own body. Think back to the very first death knights:souls of dead or warlocks raised in the bodies of humans.Also remember, Sargeras hitched a ride in two other bodies.

Thinking on this, Arthas killed Ner'zhul in the Lich King plane of existance, (not really a dream) this would mean that Ner'zhul died in the plane where his being was, and should be really dead. Of course when speculating on things like this, there is always a lot that can not be accounted for, but I think this is part of it that can be speculated upon based on the article.
