Army of the Damned
This quest allows you to play as Arthas and slaughter a regiment of your soldiers, including a Lordaeron Captain. It was believed prior to now that the captain here was Falric, however with the new lore introduced in the Death Knight manga, this has been debunked, as Falric had been made a death knight soon after chasing Arthas out into the frozen wastes.

You probably think you're quite strong—fighting these undead and crushing their bones beneath your war machines.
That is nothing compared to the strength it took to create them.
I saw the prince do it himself. I can show you how it happened... if you'd like.
Did you see, <name>?
The prince's true power wasn't his ability to make armies out of corpses... that was easy.
But killing his own men, with whom he'd shared many battles... the prince's true power was ability to do what had to be done.
Accepting the quest will send players a few years back in time as they see through The Prodigal Leader's eyes.
