The very forests of Lordaeron whispered the name… Arthas.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the founding of Blizzard Entertainment; and what better way to celebrate this epic milestone, than by casting one of the company’s most iconic characters in a 14 foot, 4,000 pound, truly one-of-a-kind statue. The statue is located on the Calligraphy Greenway in Taichung Taiwan, so if you find yourself in the neighborhood, be sure to check it out!
To coincide with the introduction of Arthas to the real world, we are also bringing an epic new Mystic Kingdoms Arthas skin and Crimson Hare mount combo to the Nexus based on the iconic East Asian hero, Guan Yu! The new Mystic Kingdoms Arthas skin embodies Guan Yu’s honor, loyalty, and strength and has been made a reality thanks to a collaboration between the artists at Blizzard Entertainment and our partner in China, NetEase Games. Check out the video below to get a preview of these two new items hitting the Americas shop on July 26.
Be sure to stay tuned for more details about the Arthas reveal ceremony, including an incredible behind-the-scenes video of how the statue was made. Until then, we'll see you in the Nexus!
