  • 5:22 Why ALLWAYS this song give me chills?

  • Sometimes the video games stories are better than the movie stories

  • Uther has always been my favorite character.

  • Talk about overacting...

  • Wotlk is my love. Still faithful to the ICC

  • Uther: "He was my student." Devos: "Remember what he did, and take your revenge." Uther: "WHAT? HOW CAN YOU CONSIDER THAT, ITS GOTTA BE SOME OTHER WAY."

  • Uther: "He was... my student..." Devos: "Remember that he left your key before it was done, and take your vengeance." Uther: "Not vengeance. Justice!"

    • It was neither.

  • When you play too much warcraft that your way of speaking and your accent sounds exactly like the characters. 🐵

  • Dude uther had the high ground tho

  • He ascended because he was selflis? He said my about 6 times

  • Anti-Vax Parents: My son is ok The son: 0:45

  • uther goes from careing loving to hateful angry and blue

  • 3:24 6:06

  • + Now, cast him into the maw! - ...... No :) + ISILDUUUUR!!!1!!

  • It would be great to see how this storyline continues.....all these months later and nothing.

  • Arthas Forever❤

  • Wait I’m confused..... the legion created the Lich king and Frostmourne right? How is the maw involved?

    • @irij Steve Danuser confirmed that the Dreadlords still stole the Helm and Frostmourne from the Jailer. But it still ultimately worked in his favour.

    • It was changed. The Jailer extracted the plans for Frostmourne and Helm of Domination from the Runecarvers head and created them, then gave them to the dreadlords, who later gave them to Kil'jaeden. So yes, the Lich King itself was created by Kil'jaeden, but not Frostmourne.

  • He was my student 😥

  • Uther is also the guy who says "Justice demands retribution" so... he cannot say he doesnt want revenge because retribution is just another word for it

  • Devos learned; Arthas never did truly give in, he fought to the end. Arthas was suppose to Ascent, but Devos couldn't let that happen, so into the Maw he went.

  • There you go ladies and gents. That is how arthas joined the nexus. His eternal suffering came

  • Would be cool if we could save Arthas from the maw.

  • no Uther. If you need to call it Justice it ceases to be Justice.

  • Never noticed the first few notes of “Tragic confrontation” from WC3 play before Uther is killed

    • 6:04 aswell.

  • when do we burn bastion to the ground. It clear the shadowlands are evil.

    • The Maw is evil, the other Shadowlands all of their own place and are supposed to attract souls that best fit them.

  • This is basically the plot of Pixar's Soul.

  • Anyone know what quest/npc triggers this cutscene?

  • Obviously Devois was working for the jailer the whole time right... Blizzard writing making 0 sense again.

    • Nah there's a pretty clear time skip between Devos trying to convince the Archon something's wrong, and then giving Uther his wings and telling him they were gonna drop Arthas in the Maw. She started working for the Jailer during that time skip.

  • And this is why I do not like bastion. They require you to destroy and forget all that you once were to become something you didn't choose to be.

  • Tell them all that the Lich King is dead. And that WoW died with him.

  • i dont think uther would do this ever. its not like his character at all.

  • 6:18 no. it is vengeance.

  • Ugh. I just got back into wow (haven't played since early bfa). Now I am catching up, and boy I really don't wanna fight against Uther. How can a man like that be both right and wrong at the same time? Ugh these expansion is giving me, a Matrix vibes and I love it!

  • Athas only did what had to be done! Because he loved his people more than anyone. But Uther let him down in the moment he needed him most, just so as not to have to get his hands dirty.

  • Oh Uther. i missd u :)

  • Jaina even admitted it. That if she didnt leave him maybe he wouldnt of turned.

    • True. She was the last one he had to lean on the day he made that decision, but she left him too.

  • As Uther said "there has to be some other way". Righteous Slaughter which Arthas has chosen is still slaughter, there would have probably been a better way to solve the issue even if it meant purifying them in holy light, it might still kill them but it would save them. Perhaps, Uther should have disobeyed Arthas's orders to get out of his sight, and taken his knights ignoring arthas and tried to cleanse the people from turning into undead. Perhaps Uther is partly to blame. Maybe he should not have left.

  • Do you really think Uther would leave Stratholme that way? He wouldnt. But yes, unfortunately for Uther, Arthas was right, There was no time. Infections spread quick and those people would stay undead for a very long time suffering. In my opinion, Arthas made a tough decision, but the right decision.

  • When Uther says. "He BETRAYED US ALL." You know that Uther doesnt know anything about how arthas picked up frostmourne to save his people and that is possessed him. Because if he had known, he would of said that "the lich king possessed my student". "Arthas didnt betray us. The Lich king betrayed Arthas". See? He would of said that. Uther doesnt know. Devos made a critical mistake.

  • Uthers perception of arthas would change if he knew the truth. I like Devos, but sadly she screwed up. Uther said "Theres got to be another way" He would have definitely had tried to figure out another way to save the infected but I do believe even though he left Arthas, its because he was suspended and had no choice but to leave. Uther was definitely coming back with the aid of Terenas and any new ideas on eliminating this threat.

  • Devos should have found how Arthas came to be before sentencing him. She should of jailed the Lich king Nerzhul. Not Arthas, she should of shown uther that arthas was possessed by frostmourne and uther would of been shocked. Uther doesnt know the full story. You really think someone who wasnt there is going to know everything?

  • Devos also doubted Uther, she made pretty bad mistakes. She should have found how Arthas came to be before sentencing him. She should of jailed the Lich king Nerzhul. Not Arthas, she should of shown uther that arthas was possessed by frostmourne and uther would of been shocked. Uther doenst know the full story. You really think someone who wasnt there is going to know everything? Uthers perception of arthas would change if he knew the truth. I like Devos, but sadly she screwed up.

  • Frostmourne had been controlling arthas all along, you can see arthas's eyes go from blue to normal just as frostmourne did and before he became the lich king arthas killed everyone with frostmourne so it was the runeblade that CONTROLLED him and possessed him which is why the monster guardians told arthas, we are trying to protect you from it. Arthas obviously wasnt able to handle frostmourne like clint wasnt able to handle loki's powers.

  • It is true that Arthas did do the most vile of things, however NO he did NOT deserve the Maw. Frostmourne had been controlling arthas all along, you can see arthas's eyes go from blue to normal just as frostmourne did and before he became the lich king arthas killed everyone with frostmourne so it was the runeblade that CONTROLLED him and possessed him which is why the monster guardians told arthas, we are trying to protect you from it. Arthas obviously wasnt able to handle frostmourne like clint wasnt able to handle loki's powers.

  • Sure he was at fault for not listening to Muradin but he was desperate. Imagine seeing your people turn to zombies or undeads and you had to kill them so they wouldnt be slaves to a demon. Clint killed many many agents and Frostmourne Drove Arthas mad to the point where it made him lose his sanity by whispering maddening things to him. He wakes up and asks his father, its it over? as in is the nightmare over? The vessels of domination (The blade and the helm) overwhelmed him.

  • Arthas is in a situation very similar to the Avengers hero Hawkeye in the Avengers 2012 when Thors brother Loki mind controlled him into killing everyone. Should we hate on Hawkeye too? He wanted to protect his homeland from MalGanis. If Arthas knew what all of that would lead to he would of NEVER had taken up Frostmourne.

  • He wakes up and asks his father, its it over? as in is the nightmare over? The vessels of domination (The blade and the helm) overwhelmed him and UTHER even told Jaina, Wake up GIRL arthas is gone, theres maybe a tiny glimpse of him fighting off the Lich King because something tells me he could of killed Jaina instantly with that choke like grip but he didnt instantly or Arthas was merely body controlled rather than just mind controlled and he couldnt do anything, he was completely 100% like CLINT was with Loki. Clint said "How many.. how many did I kill?" and Natasha Romanov said something very important similar to what Jaina would tell Arthas, She told him "Dont do that to yourself Clint, this is monsters and magic and nothing we were ever prepared for". And only abit of Arthas was possibly left and the Lich King made him rip out his own heart and take more of him away. However in the fall of the lich king cinemtic the Lich King said FROSTMOURNE HUNGERS, which was the exact same thing Deathknight Arthas said before he became the Lich King which may imply Blizzard had Arthas merged with the Lich King, instead of the Lich King taking over his body completely like Clint, But the "is it over?" IMPLIES HE WAS IN A NIGHTMARE HE WAS TRAPPED IN LIKE CLINT.

  • I also dont blame Uther for throwing Arthas into the Maw. I blame Devos because she should have studied the cause of Arthas doing all of this before encouraging Uther to throw intense judgement on Arthas by throwing him into the Maw. The Achon was right. She should of ignored it and studied what led Arthas to do this and then told Uther how all of this happened. Kind of like the Flood attacking Captain Keyes and Seargent Johnson in Halo 1 recording Master Chief sees that leads him to be shocked. It would of shocked Uther if he knew how Arthas came to be and Uther would of felt sorry for Arthas. Uther merely doesnt know the whole truth and the pain of his soul being ripped is beyond any pain so he demands justice. It is very normal to feel this way especially since his soul is ripped and that sort of pain is beyond anything we in out world feel so we cant really judge Uther. His pain is probably 1000 x worse than cancer. He is also a superhuman so he would be very strong. So his pain must be so bad, and his people suffered. Uther didnt know exactly how Arthas came to be. I dont blame Uther. I blame Devos. She was too hasty and just punished someone without understanding how he came to be. Arthas was POSSESSED. How can you do that Devos? And push Uther who didnt know Arthas did it to save his people. Uther was not fully aware of how Arthas came to be.

  • The vessels of domination (The blade and the helm) overwhelmed him and UTHER even told Jaina, Wake up GIRL arthas is gone, theres maybe a tiny glimpse of him fighting off the Lich King because something tells me he could of killed Jaina instantly with that choke like grip but he didnt instantly or Arthas was merely body controlled rather than just mind controlled and he couldnt do anything, he was completely 100% like CLINT was with Loki.

  • Am i the only one that hates Uther? I mean dude sits there talking about betrayal yet the reason Arthus was corrupted was because he abandoned him when he needed him the most. and Lived a life of selflessness? I call bullshit. Athus' choice to purge Stratholm was not an easy one but it was the correct one, those people were beyond saving and leaving them alone would have bolstered the undead forces, dooming even more people. Uther just didn't want to get his hands dirty, and lacked the conviction to what needed to be done. I mean how "selfless" can he be? It's one thing to refuse to partake in the purge, but he didn't do anything to try and save them. He could have tried to forcefully stop Arthus, he didn't. He could have tried to plead with him, he didn't. He could have tried to use the light to try and help the infected people, he didn't even attempt or try to confirm that they were beyond saving. No, he jus got all pissy and stormed off.

    • @Exodia the Forbidden One i disagree, he knew Arthas was about to begin the purge, theres no way he could have believed he could come back with reinforcements in time to prevent it. To be fair though it didn't help that Arthas did not react well to Uther not respecting his authority. As for him being "suspended", back to the part about him not being selfless, he knew what was going to happen when he left, and further more he didn't respect Arthas' authority to make the decision to purge Strathholm why would he respect his authority to banish him.

    • Jaina even admitted it. That if she didnt leave him maybe he wouldnt of turned.

    • As Uther said "there has to be some other way". Righteous Slaughter which Arthas has chosen is still slaughter, there would have probably been a better way to solve the issue even if it meant purifying them in holy light, it might still kill them but it would save them.

  • Dang Uther! That was a tough one to digest!!! That’s like a second son feeling.

  • when you've grown up and became uther -rip-

  • so all the ascended only know how to carry people by the neck

  • Kudos to the VA on the Uther Scream really sounds like his soul is being ripped out of him

  • 6:03 "He was my student" *cries*

  • Arthus chose his father, not the king , but the father.

    • that is why his name is 'U ther' it was his father.

  • arthas makes me sad af. didnt he go sort of back to his old self in his last few moments?

  • Devos did nothing wrong

  • 6:04 seeing arthas like this always makes me cry a bit

  • Nono it isent revenge is just justice! *cough* bullshit *cough*

  • Sees BASTION I'm like wait Overwatch???

  • Funny At 3:38 you can see that Froustmourne could not take whole of the Uther's soul, and that is really strange

  • devos is cute

  • Both became illogical antagonists, Devos and Uther alike. And I will never understand.

    • Uther was misled but didn't end up an antagonist, he's one of the "good" guys now.

  • The other afterlives cinematics are available in-game too, where do you find this one?

  • Tragic that ultimately Devos’ downfall was paved by compassion

  • Death knight armed with the blades of the fallen prince: "The power of the maw in hand, you say? Runes, you say? Oh, gosh. Um. That would be real bad, wouldn't it." *shifts awkwardly, hides runeblades*

    • What me? Nah, I'm good haha, don't worry *secretly throws runeblades into the maw*

  • Looks like Uther just re-rolled and became a retribution paladin.

  • By the way, Uther here is kinda fallen paladin, time to serve your king. Imagine expansion ending - Arthas new king/jailer with Uther his right hand(as he destined to).

  • It feels like this time Arthas is a victim again, more so he'll become the savior and most likely stop silvanas or kill the jailer with her.

  • waiting for the rightful king to return and sit on the frozen thone

  • JUSTICE

  • Whoever made this, is a GENIUS in our digital era, no less than any other Geniuses like Einstein or Leonardo Da Vinci... GG!

    • Sorry, We have duality Dissociative Identity Disorder, but we definitely agree!

    • me too!

    • I agree with you!

  • Can someone explain what is going on here to a mere mortal who has only played Warcraft 3?

  • Sooo even in the afterlife I gotta quest. ...perhaps they went to that well to many times

  • What happened to "Light" that he served? Feel like all the faith he has trained for have wasted :(

  • 4:22 what is an eternal charge

  • 0:25 who is that

  • We never get to know Devi's but few lines during quest. We will never get to know uther except his death since he erased most of his memories (so we won't see his past before w3, his family, relations with silver hand, etc)

    • He didn't yet erase his memories though, he's only recently returned to Bastion, and the Archon said something to the effect of the kyrian having to re-think the worth of mortal burdens.

  • Justice demands RETRIBUTION

  • 1:57 I swear, I hear Ridddle when Thenios talks.

  • Uther is such a valiant and noble human up until his death. Even in the afterlife, he still cares for Azeroth, and serve the true "Light". He is one of the humans that I admired the most.

  • If there comes a time, and it will, where we have to fight Uther, i will skip that content for he is right.

  • I kinda feel bad for Arthas. Because he tried to save his people no matter the cost, and sought vengeance, he lost his will to resist frostmourne. Probably only few mortals could resist the cursed blade. The fact that he didn't get a trial in front of the arbiter and got sent straight into the maw made me really sad. I wished Uther had a moment of clarity, that in his eyes, he would see Arthas before he got corrupted by the blade, the paladin prince he mentored.

    • The world of Warcraft is full of these "injustices". Come to think of it, Arthas wasn't wrong at Stratholme or up to the point he touched Frostmourne. There was no other way. Devos wasn't wrong as well. If Uther had shed his mortal life's memories, they'd never know indeed that agents or artifacts from the Maw were finding their way into mortal realms (Frostmourne in this case). But the Archon simply chose to shut her up and ignore it. Now look at the shitfest that happened. These are a couple of examples but they are true. Such is life as well, I guess...

  • Arthas will wake sooner or later.

  • Whoever makes these animated shorts is the reason i go back to wow

  • yeet

  • So is artas coming back to live?

  • Kinda useless to cast him into the maw when he served the maw to begin with. I guess what ever makes uther feel better.

  • Uther is going to rescue Arthas and make him “ascend” by giving him his wings. Then we’ll see Winged Arthas with the Primus/Runecarver essence inside him vs the Jailer. Badass.

    • Nah, Arthas understands that he doesn't deserve to become light/angel, most likely he'll sacrifice himself to close the maw, or become jailer to help to redeem souls that fallen to the maw but deserve redemption(like himself).

  • We all know Arthas is going to inherit those wings and maybe the Primus/Jailer essence inside him

  • See this is what happens when it costs nothing to respec...Uther went from Holy to Retribution paladin real quick

  • Not vengeance. JUSTICE! Actual goosebumps.

  • daaam i dont even play this game but uther, uther is my man

  • bastion go brrr

  • Arthas must be in the maw somewhere right? He has to make an appearance at some point shouldn't he?

  • Bring back Arthas 😅

  • No one's ever really gone

  • Democrats on the 20th of January, 2021 be like: Harris : Now cast trump into the maw, reurn him to the darkness he served... his eternal suffering awaits... Biden : He was... my... president Harris : Remember what he did, and take your vengeance... Biden : Not vengeance... justice!
