Gunther Arcanus is a level 53 quest giver located in Gunther's Retreat in the Forsaken starting zone of Tirisfal Glades.


During life, he was a mage and necromancer of the Kirin Tor in Dalaran, and a friend of Bethor Iceshard and Thule Ravenclaw. He was raised as an undead slave to the Scourge, but broke free of the Lich King's control on his own. Thinking he was the only undead with free will, he distrusted all others, but agents of the Forsaken proved to him that they were enemies of the Scourge too. Gunther then joined the Forsaken, reunited with his old friend Bethor.

Bethor Iceshard uses the  [Nether Gem] to communicate with Gunther.

It has been a long time, Bethor, my friend.
When time permits, we must speak at length. For we have much to discuss.
And thank you, <Name>. Without your aid I may never have found my way to the Forsaken.

Although his appearance is that of a usual undead, he is called a Lich by the Forsaken. This may be a title used to refer to him because he is a powerful sorcerer, or his in-game model may not be an accurate representation of what kind of undead he truly is.
