Article NameEdit

Unless there is an official source that refers to Anduin Wrynn as "Anduin Wrynn VI", we shouldn't either.--Aeleas 13:02, 30 April 2006 (EDT)

Vanished Edit

Is there anymore information on his vanishing? His status is listed as "alive" rather than "vanished", and it's possible he's dead if no one has seen him. Kimera757 14:50, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Never mind. It's his dad who is missing. Kimera757 11:33, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

CommonerEdit

Why is he a "commoner"? Because he's just a young kid and hasn't grown old enough to specialize into the diplomacy, intrigue, and what not that the "aristocrat" class is known for. Aristrocrat class would just give him too many skills he doesn't quite have yet.Baggins 02:01, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

And yet his wisdom surpasses his age. Garm 21:15, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Actually not quite, its Katrana and Bolvar who are really in charge and making all the decisions. Also as for wisdom you can find wise commoners and wise aristocrats. Wisdom isn't specifically part of the skillset of either. Its certainly not part of the RPG's skillsets heh heh.Baggins (talk) 06:07, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

The Boy King's Fate? Edit

Now that Varian appears to have returned, what'll happen to Anduin? The only good way to run a kingdom with two kings is if you kill one of them...then again, the Twin Emperors seem to rule together well enough. --Joshmaul (talk) 21:34, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

He couldn't kill his own son, either Lo'Gosh will be where his statue is in Northrend, or he'll go back to SW and his son will go back to 5th grade. Now of course you could argue in RL that tons of fathers have killed their sons for power, but WoW is only rated "T" so I don't see that one happening. Plus players can't kill kids why would NPCs?  IconSmall HighElf Male Mr.X8 Talk Contribs 21:38, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Can't believe that question was actualy asked. He's his son. He goes back to being prince. He's not gonna off him. This is Varian and Anduin not Aiden and Aliden.Warthok Talk Contribs 22:33, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
Besides which, the only reason Anduin was even crowned king was to create stability after his father went missing. With Varian returned, the former status quo will quickly reassert itself. Varian will go back to ruling Stormwind, Anduin will go back to playing with other kids, and Bolvar will go back to... Well, actually, he'll probably keep doing the same thing he's doing now. Same job, different king. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 22:36, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Well, in game Varian will probuly sit in the Stormwind Harber with one of the three Bolvar's(Hes in northrend, by the kid, and in the harber) So they'll probuly be both Kings depending on where you'r at. Hehe Airiph/T/C/B 15:59, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

The comic pretty well established that when "Varian" returned, Anduin went back to being the prince. But we'll have to wait to see what happens when the real Varian comes to Stormwind. Blackhawk003 (talk) 06:25, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

In Varian's Absesnce? Edit

I was wondering when Varian was missing how did this impact Horde raids? Did they now have to raid Stormwind?

Sincerily, D Long ownz U (talk) 21:02, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Bolvar Fordragon formerly acted as Stormwind's boss. And young Anduin has never been attackable (like any other child in the game).

The upcoming leader of the human hunters? Edit

Judging by the pictures from the manga, he's seen carrying a bow and arrows... Which has my guess that he might be the upcoming leader of the human hunters.--Dedokire (talk) 17:17, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

He also once wielded one of Valeera's daggers, does that make him a rogue? ~ Nathanyel (talk) 17:49, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
He is a Warrior (in-training), and Warriors are capable of wielding any weapons except wands and relics. Anduin is young, so I can see how Bolvar and his tutors would focus more on his archery and defensive swordplay than offensive melee like his father. (and as the comics show, he's more than capable of just using his two swords) If you had a kid, would you risk having him in the enemy's face, or safe at a distance with a bow? I'd give him the bow.--Blayaden (talk) 03:25, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

Becoming a Paladin? Edit

Could Anduin become a Paladin in Honour of Bolvar Fordragon? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by ChroniclerXII (talk · contr).

While he sure honours him (and other important adults) he doesn't strike me as the type who goes "When I grow up, I wanna be just like <insert hero>!" ~ Nathanyel (talk) 21:40, August 24, 2010 (UTC)

Still it would be good considering the fact that the Paladins were once the most powerful warriors in the original alliance (the Alliance of Lordaeron) and they need strong warriors for the current Alliance. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by ChroniclerXII (talk · contr).

And what exact purpose would him becoming a paladin serve? Would it make him cooler? ~ Nathanyel (talk) 15:55, August 27, 2010 (UTC)

I'm just saying it would probably be a good choice for him and plus Having a Paladin for a future King would also make things more interesting for the storyline.-30 August 2010, ChroniclerXII

Well aside from your theory, there currently isn't anything suggesting that he is going to become one. No offense, but this section is pointless. You might as well have suggested that he MIGHT become a Worgen since he's standing near Greymane in the Cataclysm Beta... or that Sylvanas MIGHT become the next Lich King. This is a place to discuss things about the article; not make wild theories about a character that is already well established. If he decides to become a paladin, blizzard will make it so... until then, he's still what he is. (also, if he was going to become a paladin, his new model would look more... paladinish.)--Blayaden (talk) 02:31, August 31, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for removing my post, Nathan. I decided to put it back anyway.--Blayaden (talk) 13:44, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

During a quest in which you unmask a Twilight's Hammer infiltrator in the king's court, he puts a Priest-like Shield in his father to protect him from Major Samuelson's blows. Varian later gives his thanks to the player and says something about Anduin's priest abilities. Orisai (talk) 06:04, September 6, 2010 (UTC)

Now that sounds interesting... I wonder when he picked that up?--Blayaden (talk) 13:46, September 6, 2010 (UTC)
Here is the picture of it,but what does Varian says about his priest abilities? Sl2059 (talk) 14:06, September 6, 2010 (UTC)

Even with that photo, how can anyone be sure Anduin's a priest or if the photo is real? The photo doesn't have any comments that have Varian mention Anduin's possible priest abilities. If the photo is real and from beta, can Anduin be considered a priest just because he protected his father with one Power Word: Shield? I know from the comics, he can fight and use an bow which is something priests can't normally do. Could this be something that nobles are taught or have special trinkets that can do that type of thing. He technically shouldn't be labeled as a priest until there's a quest text that mentions it. Nightowl088 (talk) 13:32, September 7, 2010 (UTC)

Exactly. Ingame priests can't use bows and hunters can't heal (themselves) but that doesn't mean a human(oid) being cannot pick up and try to use a bow, or utilize some holy relic that enables them to tap into the powers of the Light even without years of study. Heck it could even be a red herring as Blizz noticed Anduin's growing popularity due to the comics, and on live servers he were to "simply" intervene and parry that attack. ~ Nathanyel (talk) 15:22, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
I think this goes along the lines that NPC's are not restricted to player classes. As I recall, Ranger Lord Hawkspear has Auto Shot, Kick as well as Heroic Strike. Does that make him a Hunter/Rogue/Warrior combo? Lor'themar Theron has a mass Charm ability... does that make him a Succubus? --Blayaden (talk) 15:59, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
Absolutely not... that would make Lor'themar Theron an Incubus. =P User:Coobra/Sig4 20:45, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, looks like even I am prone to using the "running gag" of blood elf males being mistaken for females. Like Johnny Awesome.--Blayaden (talk) 14:31, September 8, 2010 (UTC)

I forget where I heard this, but people seem to think that Anduin will grow up being the prince Arthas could've been were it not for Frostmourne and all that fun undead stuff. Now to read too much into this...maybe his class will be some kind of healing Hero Class? :O Saberd of The Shattered Sun (talk) 14:45, September 8, 2010 (UTC)

I remember reading something similar or probably the same in a thread on mmo-champion, it was a user speculating this though. I wouldn't compare him to Arthas though, that kid was too ambitious even without his quest for Frostmourne. ~ Nathanyel (talk) 22:13, September 8, 2010 (UTC)

This is a video confirming his skills as a priest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLnNJZwXuLs&feature=player_embedded Sl2059 (talk) 19:40, September 22, 2010 (UTC)

Um... where, just watched the whole thing and I didn't see him do anything.. maybe you can point of a timestamp for us to look at specifically. User:Coobra/Sig4 21:08, September 22, 2010 (UTC)
In the Prequest to Twilight Highlands in Stormwind,It is revealed he is a priest,after he protects his father from the faceless disguised as Samuelson,Varian says "I've underestimated how much Anduin has grown,his command of the holy light just saved my life,if not the entire kingdom.",7:26 on 720P quality,full screen,from the quest log.combine it with the image I added before as a reference(although it can also be seen in the video a few seconds before the time I specified),it is telling you he is a priest.He is also wielding a wand. Sl2059 (talk) 21:42, September 22, 2010 (UTC)
Ok.. Holy Light, so there's many types of soldiers of the light. Doesn't mean he's a priest. User:Coobra/Sig4 21:48, September 22, 2010 (UTC)
That what the Power Word:Shield and Wand telling you,even if you believe he is a paladin,paladin can't put bubble(bubble,not hand of protection) on others,and paladins cant use wands.Sl2059 (talk) 21:52, September 22, 2010 (UTC)
He's a priest in training. Here's a sreenshot of him admitting it in the quest My son the prince. http://img178.imageshack.us/i/12237585.jpg/ (Sports72Xtrm (talk) 22:29, September 22, 2010 (UTC))
Now you got the perfect evidence Coobra,it wasn't in the video I putted because the guy who did it was a shaman.Sl2059 (talk) 22:35, September 22, 2010 (UTC)
And that is a source, thank you Sports72Xtrm. User:Coobra/Sig4 23:47, September 22, 2010 (UTC)

Still he was trained to be a warrior and has some warrior experience. furthermore since he has a lot of holy/light powers as a priest then becoming a Paladin is also very/Quite possible as some Paladins use to be both warriors and Clerics/Priests before taking up the sword(or in this warhammer).

Personality Edit

I think Anduin's presence has become significant enough to warrant a 'personality' section. The comics do a lot to flesh him out, despite the game being lacking in including him in anything. Also The Shattering features him centrally, and so all that together I think makes him worthy of a more complete page. Meganerd18 (talk) 09:01, November 19, 2010 (UTC)

I like him i want to be his personal bodyguard but the thing is he is now roaming free in pandaria.Thats starting to worry me.

Commoner 2 Edit

Should Anduin really be a commoner? It did say so in the RPG book, but these aren't necessarily canon, and when has a prince ever been called a commoner?Tankingmage (talk) 01:51, July 31, 2013 (UTC)
