Role: Melee Warrior
Muradin was introduced in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos (available in the Warcraft III Battle Chest) when Prince Arthas found him in Northrend. Muradin helped Prince Arthas fight the Undead Scourge, and shortly after reprimanded his former disciple when Arthas ordered mercenaries to burn down the Alliance fleet to prevent his men from retreating after recall orders from King Terenas’ emissary. Muradin disliked how Arthas ordered his men to kill the same mercenaries that helped him burn the ships. However, continued to help him search for the fabled Frostmourne runeblade.
When Muradin translated the inscription in the dais holding Frostmourne, he quickly warned Prince Arthas the runeblade was cursed and that they should leave immediately. Arthas chanted a plea to the sword Frostmourne. The ice covering the dais exploded, and a large chunk hit Muradin on the head. Prince Arthas wielded Frostmourne and left Muradin behind thinking him dead.
Muradin awoke shortly after without a trace of his memories as revealed in a vision at the Frostmourne Cavern in the Dragonblight (World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King). Time later, the amnesiac Muradin was sheltered by the Frostborn (Frost dwarves) and became their leader. During an escape from the Engine of the Makers in Storm Peaks, Brann Bronzebeard and a hero flew away and landed on Frosthold. Brann recognized his brother Muradin. Their talk caused Muradin to recover his memory and helped the Argent Crusade and the Alliance to fight against the Icecrown Citadel.
Shortly, after the Shattering, King Magni was transformed into a diamond during a ritual meant to allow him to become one with the earth to commune and find out what caused the earthquakes preluding the Cataclysm. Prince Muradin Bronzebeard returned home and took a role in the Council of Three Hammers representing the Bronzebeard house.

Basic Hero Quests
Basic Hero Quests are unique to each Hero. Usually they are focused on using a spell/ability “X” amount of times against any enemy Hero; and the last one asks you to play 10 games with your Hero.
Epic Hero Quests
The Epic Hero Quests are not available until you reach level 10, and until your Hero has completed the 3 Basic Hero Quests. These are not unique for each hero. All Heroes must complete the same Epic Hero Quests.
