Blizzard is celebrating 30 years of fandom glory this year and a small part of the celebratory festivities includes a first look at an impressive Arthas Helm of Domination replica. This collectible comes at a good time, considering Sylvanas destroyed it in the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands DLC.
While the in-game helmet is used to control the Scourge, this replica (seen above) just looks really cool in your house. Still, it’s an impressive take on an important aspect of World of Warcraft lore and its painstakingly detailed finish makes this a worthy trophy for any hardcore fan (or a casual one, since collectibles are for everyone).
The helmet itself comes in at over 15 inches – 17 if you count the stand – and is an exact replica of the powerful WoW artifact. Forged according to the Jailer’s will, the Helm of Domination was meant to be the vessel of Death’s influence on Azeroth. The Nathrezim imprisoned the spirit of the orc chieftain Ner’zhul within the helm, giving the chieftan command over a vast army of undead Scourge. The fallen Prince Arthas Menethil freed the Helm from the Frozen Throne, donning it to take up the mantle of the Lich King. That was until Sylvanas Windrunner said “haha, just kidding, I’ll take that.”
This Blizzard-exclusive replica will be available to purchase during this year’s BlizzConline virtual event on February 19 starting at 3:00 P.M. Pacific Time. To make sure to nab yours, and to learn more, you can check out Blizzard’s post about the upcoming event right here.
Though BlizzCon is doing something a little differently this year because of COVID-19 restrictions, the company is still aiming to recreate that same fan-driven and community-focused atmosphere. The virtual event will take place February 19 and 20, and promises a new look at Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 alongside a few other surprises.
