- Urn of King Terenas
- Formerly the container of King Terenas' ashes, this magically enchanted urn was chosen by Tichondrius to preserve Kel'Thuzad's remains.
As part of a plot to summon the demon lord Archimonde, the dreadlord Tichondrius ordered the death knight Arthas to revive the necromancer Kel'Thuzad. However, a being of Kel'Thuzad's power could only be reanimated using the energies of the Sunwell, and Kel'Thuzad's remains were too badly decomposed to survive a journey to Quel'Thalas. Tichondrius therefore charged Arthas with stealing an enchanted urn from the Knights of the Silver Hand, in which the remains could be stored and protected. After killing Uther the Lightbringer, Arthas dumped his father's ashes out of the urn, then had Kel'Thuzad's remains placed inside it.
