Frostmourne in WoW Armory

Been away for about a year, and just happened to hear from a friend that the frostmourne is in wow armory inventory...

So looked into it and also ashbringer, and shard of the defiler a legendary dagger with no stats other than swing time and dps.

if anyone knows about this or why this is...please feel free to spam me with useless name calling and etc.

You're confused why in-game items would be listed by a site that tracks in-game items?

I think he's more confused about why items that are and have always been unobtainable are able to be viewed on the armory.

Are you saying I can try on gear in the armory?

I've seen Frostmourne being linked in Trade lately as a gold-colored item. Since it isn't an heirloom item, I'm assuming it's data left over from when gold items were planned to be artifacts, a level above Legendaries. The stats aren't very impressive, but the item model shows up in the Dressing Room window when you Ctrl-Right Click on it.

GM items are also gold-colored, I hear, but are not under any circumstances to be in the hands of players.

Lore-wise, anyone holding Frostmourne is going to be immediately corrupted and become the new Lich King, a position currently held by Bolvar Fordragon. As a result, I don't see the item coming into the game at any point in the near future.

Which just makes me all the more curious how its files are still in the game, and how those files even have an attached weapon model for the Dressing Room.

actually the sword doesnt make you the lich king, the helm and armor does because that's what contains the original lich king. the sword is evil, just not immidiate LK evil.

bolvar just has the helm, the shattered sword is actually in dal
