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.

"Ye got my attention, laddie."
"I'll take swords for three hundred."
"I was never dead, alright? I was just restin' me eyes!"
"It ain't wise to poke a warrior so much, sonny. We might just poke ya back."
"The only drinkin' problem I have is when me mug is empty!"
"Anyone got some gold I can borrow? I'm a bit short. Get it, short? 'Cause I'm a dwarf? Haha!"
"Ye never toss a dwarf. Ye... ye hurl a dwarf, there's a difference."
"Aw, out o' booze! Wait a tick. (Liquid pouring) Ha, I knew this beard was good for somethin'!"
"Ye can take the king out o' the mountain, but ye cannae take the mountain outta the king!"
"You're the dwarf now, dawg."
"Rumor has it my grandpappy was a Silverbeard. Dyed the thing his whole life!"
"Oh no, Blizzard killed your favorite character! Bah, don't fret; odds are they'll turn up in an expansion or two. Trust me, I know."
"Ye know it's tragic and all, but me brother Magni really does make one fine statue. All sparkly and stuff."
"Back when Brann was a wee dwarf, we'd constantly catch him lookin' at Explorer's Guild Magazine. Said it was for the articles. Bah, we all knew it was really for the paintings of the tuskarr women!"
