Q for zeh Q: What happened to Arthas's body? Can't imagine it laying in front of Bolvar forever.

I have a tin foil hat wild guess for that.Go to the graveyard behind the Stormwind Cathedral, out by Tiffin's grave. Next to it is a small mausoleum that contains a small sarcophagus that has no markings on it beyond Lordaeron's emblem.Varian and Arthas were close friends before Arthas became a Death Knight, so I believe that Varian recovered his body and had it buried in Stormwind. There is no name on the sarcophagus because a grave labelled "ARTHAS MENETHIL" would just be an open invitation for everyone to piss on it. Putting Lordaeron's emblem on it allows him to spin it as a generic memorial to the fallen of Lordaeron so no one starts wondering why there's an empty mausoleum in the middle of the graveyard.

Sylvanas probably has it tucked away for a rainy day.

@DeathpaladinI've heard that that tomb is more likely to be Anduin Lothar's tomb, than Arthas'.

I think that tomb is actually Varian's wife, not sure without checking in-game but I read somewhere that she had a special grave on the park so that's probably it.

Namus: Hers is marked. The one mentioned above is an unnamed gravesite, emblazoned simply with the Lordaeron crest.

Burn it! Burn it with Fire!!!

@Namus:Varian's wife was Tiffin, who I mentioned as having the plot next to the unmarked mausoleum.@LaVache:I suppose it could very well be Lothar's grave, but that begs the question as to why such a legendary figure would be buried in an unmarked grave in the very city that practically worships him. Seriously, Anduin Lothar is the only person who ever succeeded in grinding *past* Exalted with Stormwind. If he was in that sarcophagus, there's be a statue of him probably about as tall as the Cathedral towering over it.Humans in Azeroth are not particularly shy about their hero worship. Look at the Valley of Heroes. Look at Uther's tomb. Hell, look at all the statues of Tirion and Varian that started popping up like marble mushrooms after Arthas died. Something as conspicuously low-key as that mausoleum makes me suspect that it contains someone unpopular, and the Lordaeron crest coupled with recent events makes me think Arthas.

That's an interesting idea DeathPaladin. I'll go with that one ;)
