There are two pieces of information that always bugged me about Ashkandi being Anduin Lothar's sword. First is the dragon motiff. Second, I'm fairly certain Turalyon picked up the broken sword and used it to defeat Doomhammer and the orcs. I doubt he would have just tossed it aside due to the sentimental value he had to it.However, there are two possibilities: One: I believe I read somewhere that Lothar had two swords. It's possible that Doomhammer detroyed one, and the other was lost in the battlefield after Lothar fell to eventually be picked up and possibly reforged/refitted and ending up ultimately in Nefarian's grasp.Two: The sword fragments minus the hilt were reforged into Ashkandi. Turalyon would have had the bottom half of the sword. The problem with that theory is why would A.L. end up etched at the bottom of the sword? But I share your concern. It seems a bit too Draconic for a sword to have Anduin Lothar's initials etched on the hilt.
