Well I mean, no matter what Arthas went through up to getting Frostmourne it's doubtful he'd abandon his humanity and massacre his kingdom unless magically warped to do that. Never had any doubts that's what happened in WC3. Then the novel comes along and has Arthas act about the same before and after magic death sword.

I already mentioned this here once, but Frostmourne essentially does is that it takes away Arthas' soul, which leaves him unable to feel any deeper emotions, including love, compassion, shame, guilt, and essentially leaves him without conscience.

Sorta like Kerrigan in a way (the infestation amplified things like rage anger and desire for vengeance while suppressing compassion and empathy)

So I noticed in some of your earlier concepts that Quel'Thalas is far enough north that theoretically the Sunwell could have 24 hours of day and night during their respective Solstices, is this something that would be touched on as a part of their culture? Maybe an elf specific tradition surrounding midsummer/winter's veil?

I've moved the line further north actually. Though there are other traditions surrounding the Sunwell.

When reaching adulthood, young female elves are admitted to the society as equals and life-givers by bathing in the arcane waters of the Sunwell, an event public and much celebrated.

I have a question about this.

What works do you include as canon?

Everything, though there are levels of importance and accuracy.
