The spirit of Arthas, formerly the Lich King, has wandered Azeroth for two years until finding his way to the Dark Portal. He has passed through and gone to Netherstorm, where he summoned all his remaining power and cut through the fabric of space. He has now crossed the Twisting Nether and landed at a lost and forgotten shard of Outland. It is called Shatterland, true home of the arakkoa. He has corrupted a majority of the remaining arakkoa and taken hold of the spire in which the arakkoa council once ruled. He has named it the Shattered Spire and plans to take control of Shatterland, proving to be far more satisfying than Northrend.
