"Quiconque s'empare de cette lame s'empare d'un pouvoir infini. Tout comme la lame tranche la chair, le pouvoir balafre l'esprit."
—L'inscription sur le piédestal de Deuillegivre

Deuillegivre était la lame runique que Ner'zhul, le roi-liche, a expulsé du Trône de Glace, jusqu'à ce qu'Arthas Menethil — son hôte involontaire — la découvre sur le continent du Norfendre. Elle fut ensuite portée par Arthas, le nouveau roi-liche, jusqu'à ce qu'elle fut détruite suite à sa défaite dans la Citadelle de la Couronne de Glace. Nul ne sait où se trouvaient les vestiges de Deuillegivre et sa garde bosselée pendant un tempss.[1][2]

Durant les événements de World of Warcraft: Legion, un un chevalier de la mort Givre récupère les fragments de Deuillegivre et les reforge en deux nouvelles puissantes lames runiques - Porte-Givre et Fauche-Givre, les lames du prince déchu.

Histoire[modifier | modifier le wikicode]

Origines[modifier | modifier le wikicode]

Quand Ner'zhul fut transformé en roi-liche par Kil'jaeden, son esprit désincarné fut enfermé dans une armure magique tout comme l'épée runique Deuillegivre, et piégé dans un tombeau gelé appelée le Trône de Glace. L'armure et l'épée ont toutes deux été forgées par les nathrezims[3] de la Légion ardente[4] dans le but de contenir et contrôler le roi-liche.[5]

Plan d'évasion de Ner'zhul[modifier | modifier le wikicode]

Arthas s'empare de Deuillegivre.

Ner'zhul n'était pas satisfait d'être un pion à la solde de la Légion ardente, cependant, et commença à travailler à un plan d'évasion. La première étape de son plan fut mise en action quand il utilisa ses pouvoirs pour expulser Deuillegivre hors du Trône de Glace, et la jeta dans les neiges du Norfendre, attendant que quelqu'un s'en empare et devienne l'agent du roi-liche. Ner'zhul trouva son agent en Arthas Menethil, le jeune prince de Lordaeron venu en Norfendre dans une quête pour mettre fin à la peste.

Muradin Barbe-de-Bronze, un explorateur nain basé à cette époque en Norfendre, était à la recherche de l'arme après avoir entendu parler du pouvoir de Deuillegivre quand Arthas et ses hommes arrivèrent.[6] Quand les forces du seigneur de l'effroi Mal'Ganis commencèrent à les encercler, Arthas et Muradin partirent à sa recherche.[7]

Au plus profond d'une grotte cachée et sans nom, Deuillegivre était gardée par le Gardien et plusieurs revenants qui tentèrent d'avertir Arthas du danger, mais il ignora l'avertissement et les détruisit. Quand ils trouvèrent l'épée, Muradin lit l'inscription sur l'estrade :[7]

"Quiconque s'empare de cette lame s'empare d'un pouvoir éternel. Tout comme la lame déchire la chair, le pouvoir balafre l'esprit."[7]

Muradin réalisa ensuite que la lame était maudite, mais Arthas dit qu'il endurerait avec joie n'importe quelle malédiction pour sauver sa patrie. En disant ces paroles, la glace enfermant l'épée se brisa et explosa. Un éclat dentelé toucha Muradin, qui s'écroula. Arthas, ignorant la perte de son ami, jeta son marteau, Vengeance de la Lumière, et se saisit de l'épée.

Entre les mains d'Arthas[modifier | modifier le wikicode]

With the sword in hand, Arthas returned to his base and staged a counterattack against Mal'Ganis, quickly destroying the dreadlord's base. Mal'Ganis confronted Arthas, telling him that Ner'zhul had known he would take the cursed sword, and that it had now stolen Arthas's soul. He spoke as if he believed Arthas was now on his side, but to his surprise Arthas used the runeblade to slay the dreadlord on the Lich King's command. With his soul forfeited to the Lich King, Arthas ran off into the frozen wastes of Northrend.[7]

Now a death knight of the Scourge, Arthas killed and converted his former army before returning to Lordaeron, where he was hailed with a royal welcome. Arthas proceeded directly to the throne room, where he killed his father, King Terenas, and set the Scourge loose throughout the city.

Some time after the Burning Legion's defeat at Mount Hyjal, the demon hunter Illidan Stormrage used a powerful spell to attack the Frozen Throne, where the Lich King was imprisoned. Though the spell was unsuccessful, it widened the crack through which Frostmourne had been thrust, and the Lich King's power began to wane, so he recalled Arthas to Northrend to aid him. Arthas defeated Illidan and ascended the spire to the Frozen Throne. He then used Frostmourne to shatter the ice, donned the helmet that was sealed within, and became the new Lich King.

    A copy of Frostmourne appears in the game files, but has never dropped and is not available to players.

    The Frozen Halls[modifier | modifier le wikicode]

    Just after he is defeated in the Pit of Saron, the undead gnome Krick lets it slip that Arthas leaves Frostmourne unattended in the Halls of Reflection, his private sanctum in the Frozen Halls of Icecrown Citadel.

    After surviving the Pit of Saron, the guides for the adventurers braving the Halls (Jaina Proudmoore for the Alliance or Sylvanas Windrunner for the Horde) lead the way into the Halls of Reflection. As Krick promised, Frostmourne stands alone, floating serenely above an altar in the center of the entry chamber. Jaina or Sylvanas attempt to commune with the souls trapped within the blade to find the key to the Lich King's weakness. They are contacted by the spirit of Uther the Lightbringer, who warns them that another must take the Lich King's place in order to keep the Scourge under control.

    Fall of the Lich King[modifier | modifier le wikicode]

    During the final battle against the Lich King at the Frozen Throne, Frostmourne was shattered by Ashbringer, wielded by Tirion Fordring. The thousands of souls trapped within the blade swarmed the Lich King, suspending him in the air, where he was finished off by the champions assembled to defeat him.

    On the Dedication of Honor monument at the center of Runeweaver Square in Dalaran, a bust of the shattered hilt of Frostmourne is shown at the feet of the statue of Tirion Fordring.

    At Blizzcon 2011, it was stated that the shards of Frostmourne were taken by "someone smart" and put "somewhere safe"... at least until someone gets it in their head to try to reforge it.[8]

    Legion[modifier | modifier le wikicode]

    According to the announcement at Gamescon 2015 for the 6th expansion, Legion, a Frost Death Knight will return to Icecrown Citadel and gather the shards of Frostmourne and reforge them into two new, powerful runeblades- the Blades of the Fallen Prince.

    Curse[modifier | modifier le wikicode]

    The RPG Icon 16x36.png Le contenu de cette section est exclusif au RPG Warcraft et ne constitue pas une référence.

    Frostmourne has the ability to drain life from its victims — and to drain the soul of anyone whom it connects to. The Lich King is capable of seeing through the eyes and hearing through the ears of anyone who wields Frostmourne; this ability cannot be stopped by any mortal means. The Lich King can communicate with the wielder at will telepathically, on any plane and at any distance. The Lich King uses this ability to try and corrupt the wielder over time. This has several effects. An individual who wields Frostmourne will not part with it willingly. Over time the person will go from good to neutral and finally to evil. A non-undead evil wielder will then become undead. Finally the sword is able to suck the being's soul into the sword. Frostmourne then retains the memories and skills of its victim. In fact, as long as the wielder's original body remains within one mile of Frostmourne, the sword maintains control of the body, and he may not be completely aware that his consciousness has shifted to the weapon. Beyond one mile, the sword cannot control the wielder's body, and the wielder of course finally becomes quite aware of his current state (if he is not already).

    The Lich King can take possession of a soulless body that comes in contact with him and Frostmourne at the same time. The soul within Frostmourne is destroyed unless it willingly merges with the Lich King, becoming lost as a separate entity for all eternity. If a soul merges with the Lich King, he gains all the skills and memories of the victim. He has only done this one time, with Prince Arthas Menethil.[9]

    Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos[modifier | modifier le wikicode]

    WC3RoC logo 16x32.png Le contenu de cette section est exclusif à Warcraft III.

    In Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, Frostmourne increased Arthas' base damage by 22 points and allowed him to deal chaos damage, which was fully effective against all types of armor (including that of buildings and divine beings). For balance reasons, this effect was only applied during the Frostmourne mission and not during the Path of the Damned or Legacy of the Damned campaigns.

    The Warcraft RPG[modifier | modifier le wikicode]

    The RPG Icon 16x36.png Le contenu de cette section est exclusif au RPG Warcraft et ne constitue pas une référence.

    In Manual of Monsters, Frostmourne is an artifact-level bastard sword with the following abilities: an increased chance to hit (+5), increased damage (+5), an increased chance of scoring a critical hit (keen), an increased attack speed (haste), the ability to strike incorporeal creatures as though they were fully corporeal (ghost touch), the ability to cause bleeding wounds and reduce the victim's stamina (wounding), bonus damage against good-aligned beings (unholy), bonus damage against living beings (2d6), and a life-draining effect that heals its wielder whenever he deals damage.[5]

    The Warcraft TCG[modifier | modifier le wikicode]

    Modèle:Tcg-section In the Icecrown Citadel raid deck, Frostmourne has a "Harvest Soul" ability. When it deals fatal damage to an opposing ally, its attack power increases by 1 and it deals 2 frost damage to each opposing hero.

    In the Reign of Fire set, when one of your own allies is destroyed, Frostmourne's attack power increases by 1 and your hero recovers 3 points of health. When your hero is at full health and damages an opposing hero, Frostmourne allows you to bring one of your dead allies back into play.

    Arthas: Rise of the Lich King[modifier | modifier le wikicode]

    WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png Le contenu de cette section est exclusif aux romans et aux nouvelles de Warcraft.

    In Arthas: Rise of the Lich King, Arthas is able to wield the runeblade almost effortlessly, despite its size and weight. It slices through most opponents with minimal resistance, and shatters most weapons it comes in contact with. Those slain by Frostmourne have their souls drawn into the weapon.

    Its greatest challenge was clashing with the legendary elven blade,  [Felo'melorn], which the sin'dorei scion Prince Kael'thas had reforged to combat Frostmourne. Though able to put up a defense against Frostmourne's merciless onslaught, its fiery origins proving a good counter to the icy runeblade, Kael'thas ultimately abandoned the battle, leaving Frostmourne undefeated.

    BlizzCon[modifier | modifier le wikicode]

      Frostmourne at BlizzCon.

      Theoretical stats for Frostmourne as a World of Warcraft item were shown during the Lore Panel at BlizzCon 2007, likely as a joke. The quote on the item tooltip, "Hail to the King, Baby!", is a phrase popularized by Bruce Campbell's Ash at the end of Army of Darkness.

      The developers said they were "still working the fine details" and that the Equip effect was "shot down by various powers-that-be" (illustrating the potential problem with a screenshot of the new Lich King, Private Ownusohard). However, they closed with "we'll get something to you guys, we promise."

      During a Class Panel Discussion at BlizzCon 2009, Blizzard developers revealed that the "something" in Icecrown Citadel was a new legendary axe, Shadowmourne.

      List of souls[modifier | modifier le wikicode]

      The following notable characters were slain by Frostmourne or otherwise lost their souls to it. With the possible exceptions of those brought back as undead creatures, it is presumed that their souls remained trapped in the sword until its destruction.

      According to King Terenas Menethil II's spirit, there were thousands of souls contained within the blade. Countless souls were freed from the broken blade, but others were not so fortunate.[10]

      In other media[modifier | modifier le wikicode]

      • A hidden cave can be found in the action game X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Inside the cave, Wolverine finds a skeleton with a yellow exclamation point (Quest Avail 16x16.png) above his head, like a WoW questgiver, and a sword which is a replica of Frostmourne. Finding this room unlocks the "WoW!" Achievement/Trophy, depending on whether the game is being played on the Xbox 360 or the Playstation 3. The description of the Achievement confirms the reference: "You feel cold as you examine the skeleton and read the name "Arthas" etched into the nearby sword."
      • In "Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock" both Arthas (as the Lich King) and Frostmourne (his guitar) are unlockable after earning 1600 stars and reaching level 71.
      • Icemourne is an obvious reference of Frostmourne from the new patch, 1.2 of Terraria. The skin is pixelated to look like a pixel version of the sword and is unobtainable unless used a third party application but the sword will change into an Angel Statue upon entering game.
