[10-45] The Call of Icecrown
Crafted by the Burning Legion to corrupt the world of Azeroth, the soul-stealing runeblade Frostmourne was shattered by Ashbringer atop Icecrown Citadel. Countless souls were freed from the broken blade, but others were not so fortunate. Today the shards of Frostmourne can be recrafted and infused with even more power. However, the spirits still trapped within must first be subdued and bent to the wielder's will.

Memory of Arthas will occasionally appear. Clicking on him will cause him to speak to you, and then grant you a small amount of Artifact Power.
Memory of Arthas whispers: See the spirits writhe and twist...
Memory of Arthas whispers: The numberless shades forsaken by time. Memory of Arthas whispers: The dead outnumber the living, and always will.
Memory of Arthas whispers: You believe that you are in control, that your will is your own...
Memory of Arthas whispers: Yet you do as He commands.
Memory of Arthas whispers: You exist by His whim alone. Memory of Arthas whispers: You imagine yourself to be free, but you will always be His instrument...
Memory of Arthas whispers: So many fallen kings, silent in their numberless graves...
Memory of Arthas whispers: Even the mighty are rendered nameless by time. Memory of Arthas whispers: Every king must kneel before death.
Memory of Arthas whispers: The darkness does not die, <name>.
Memory of Arthas whispers: Rage against the Nightmare. Struggle as you will. Memory of Arthas whispers: The infinite darkness is patient. We will all be claimed in the end.
Notes and trivia
Temple Priestesses comment that the blades are cursed, and order the death knight who wield them to not bring the chill of death in the sacred Temple of Elune.
Muradin Bronzebeard considered it blasphemous to see a death knight wielding those cursed blades, as they were forged from the remains of Frostmourne, the cursed blade that damned Lordaeron and it's prince.  At the gamescom 2015 event, the twin blades were introduced as Icebringer and Soulreaper. When the artifact previews were revealed on the main World of Warcraft website on the first day of BlizzCon 2015, Soulreaper was changed to Frostreaper. Frostreaper was initially the name of the offhand blade while Icebringer was the main hand, but the two were later switched.
