The war against the Lich King (also called the "war against the Scourge" and "battle against the Lich King") is an ongoing war that is played out in World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King. It started when Varian Wrynn prepared to attack the Scourge, but the Lich King had already made his plans and attacked Stormwind before he could send the offensive, at the same time the Scourge invaded Orgrimmar, and so the war began.
