I love redemption stories--I love to see a character you think is lost come back from the edge. But as so many have pointed out, the fallen Prince has long past that point. People have all compared him to Vader, but I think Macbeth is far more apt.

"I am in blood
Stepp'd in so far, that, should I wade no more,
Returning were as tedious as go o'er." - Macbeth, Act III

The would be king was tempted and corrupted by all sorts of outside forces but no one chose the path save himself.

Still there's a sense of tragedy (obviously) to watching a character who was not evil fall to such depths. Another parallel that I drew was how Macbeth could find no rest (he murdered sleep after all) and Arthas's line of "Is it over?" and then "I see... darkness." There's the sense that whatever of left of Arthas is weary and full of regret.

To my mind, he allowed to sleep in death, rather than suffer further, and that's as much as he's been granted by the mercy of the Light.

Dec 28th 2009 3:37PM Utterly random question that I've been pondering while running around the crusade grounds-- What are those little black and white beetles running around? I can't click on them and I don't remember seeing them anywhere else.

The OverAchiever: Guide to Hallow's End achievements {WoW}

Oct 24th 2009 5:04PM That's exactly where I was stuck at the end. I'd even had a second squashing drop from a treat bag before I finally got that stupid toothpick!

Breakfast Topic: Pick a title, any title {WoW}

Mar 5th 2009 12:06PM Like a lot of others I would love to see class titles. I'd love my Death Knight to be 'Feryn of the Ebon Blade'

Oct 7th 2008 3:10PM That's all true, but that basically would make this a $600 expansion which is silly. I like my mac; I like it alot, so when I upgrade that computer it will be with another mac and until that time I'll just find some other way to spend my extra time and money every month.

Oct 7th 2008 2:41PM Oh that stings somewhat--I hate that my G4 laptop is only 2 years old and suddenly pushing obsolete. We'll see how this plays out with my playing WoW since I certainly can't afford a new computer anytime soon.
