it's not about the lore of RPH, it's about the lore of the phase. question is, what was the story in question?

 

phase owners can ban you for any reason, by the way

Game mechanics are not lore. You would not 'normally kill the lich king in a raid' learn to RP.

It has little to do with game mechanics.

 

Rather that it's rather presumptuous to say that out of everybody on Azeroth, you're one of the few 'player characters' that successfully defeated and took down the Lich King. Not only is this appropriating Blizzard's lore to suit your personal benefit, but it's an incredibly important role that doesn't really have a place in most RPH contexts. For example, the player character would never go to Rhinestone, or Sanlow, or Eastmoon - it's simply not something they'd be doing. At the moment, canonically, they're on Argus anyway.

 

So it really is bending the lore to your own advantage to say that you were one of the 25 heroes that took down The Lich King.

Honestly it would in-universe be waaaay more than 25 and dozens would die all the way until the actual fight with Arthas.

As stated above. The ingame mechanic is NOT entirely what happens lorewise. The best of the best of Azerothian heroes took down, together with a great variety of npcs, the Lich King in a long ass campaign that took longer than 1 year ( on Northrend itself) and some months outside Northrend. It always happens like this. Nameless heroes, whom you play on retail, are the unsung heroes cuz they are a mystery yet they "slay" every great foe. They are now icly rulers over their class hall. Unless you rp as said hero, it would also be done through a long fight, not with simple game mechanics.

 

Hope this helped.

Kind regards,

Vis

If you were telling this IC, you fully deserve the kick. Not only should you NEVER be one of the Retail Adventurers, only Tirion, The Adventurers and the Ebon Blade really know what happened up there, so yeah. You were breaking the lore with your IC act.

Except the fact that the adventurers all died and were never mass-resurrected by Terenas anyway, so....

Is this something I missed or some kind of a joke? I don't remember reading anything like that anywhere.

In Sylvanas's chapter there's a description of the Frozen Throne after the Lich King's death:

"His broken armor lay in pieces on the white peak before his throne, surrounded with blackened cakes of frozen gore, the remains of those who had finally brought him to his knees."

It might be that just some of them died, but its really unclear, Blizzard being vague isn't anything new.
