Why is Arthas so bad?

Hero and Skin Suggestions
Arthas is the most trash character in the game. He is not effective at all. His ability to do damage is trash, his ability to take a hit is trash. He needs major revamping.
well you're probably playing him wrong then, you probably talented him wrongly.
He's not the best tank but neither is he the worst tank.

Agreed. Arthus isn't the best tank but he is good in the right hands with the right talents
He does need a buff. But you aren't making a very compelling argument as to why OP.
The problem is not Arthas. The problem is that people are not playing melee assassins much anymore. Arthas still destroys them pretty well. Arthas suffers against the ranged mobile poke heros which are common these days. If you buff him, you make melee assassins even less desirable to play.
I like how you specifically describe your issues with Arthas in great detail with "trash" many times.
Arthas and his role in games is to slow down enemies in order to facilitate your team to get kills. He countered by ranged heroes or high mobility heroes that movement speed can be irrelevant (Tracer, Genji and others). I say Arthas is not broken but the current meta counters his core competency well.
