The World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King Classic comes with gorgeous 4K remastered walkthrough animations and an amazing replica sword for the lucky ones…
Wrath of the Lich King is one of the most anticipated and beloved expansions in World of Warcraft history. Now that it’s coming to World of Warcraft Classic, players everywhere can relive one of the most memorable chapters in the MMO’s history.
The Wrath of the Lich King cinematic itself is a chilling introduction to the power of the Lich King. This haunting scene, rendered in 4K, is as incredible as it was when it was initially released.
World of Warcraft fans were treated to a wealth of fantastic cinematics in the week leading up to the release of Wrath of the Lich King Classic. Just a few days earlier, WoW unveiled the official “Journey” trailer. This rendered cinematic was created by Hurricane, a renowned World of Warcraft artist who has created unique cinematics for many raids throughout the game’s history. The amazing cinematic captures the nostalgic essence of Wrath of the Lich King and features characters from the World of Warcraft community.
World of Warcraft fans have welcomed the remastered trailer for Wrath of the Lich King. The original was so good that many fans said they could barely tell the difference and confirmed that the trailer still left them breathless. Many have claimed that the Wrath of the Lich King cinematic is not only the best WoW animation but one of the best in gaming history.
Like Frostmourne? Now you can have it!
World of Warcraft has finally unveiled the official replica of Frostmourne, the infamous blade of the Lich King, to be available for pre-order in time for the release of Wrath of the Lich King Classic. However, just as Arthas has taken it upon himself to get his hands on this incredible World of Warcraft collectible, it also comes at a hefty price.
The Frostmourne Premium Replica and matching wall mount is currently available for pre-order on the Blizzard Gear Store and is expected to ship in February 2023.
The Frostmourne will cost $1,500 for players, and the wall mount will cost $200, bringing the price of the two collector’s items to nearly $2,000 after taxes and shipping.
The World of Warcraft replicas themselves are of insane quality. The Frostmourne reproduction is over four feet long and weighs almost seventeen pounds! Made of stainless steel, zinc-copper alloy and genuine leather, this officially licensed collector’s item comes with a certificate of authenticity. The blade itself is made with a wax-loss process, engraving, mill-finishing and hand polishing. The wall holder is cast in metal and resin and weighs approximately seven pounds.
Given that Frostmourne has been around for over 20 years, it’s no surprise that many other Frostmourne replicas have been made in the workshops of various companies and cosplayers. This premium replica is Blizzard’s first officially licensed version of the fearsome rune sword. However, the official certification comes at a high price: the Frostmourne Premium Replica costs two to four times as much as off-brand versions.
The pre-order of the Frostmourne Premium Replica was released at the perfect time.
The Wrath of the Lich King Classic launches today, and players can once again take to the frozen northern continent to take on the forces of the Lich King.
