I'm not sure what they were thinking with this comic.

Anduin and Sylvanas kill each other, and then the murder hobos that are our characters become king of stormwind/warchief of the Horde.

First we were the Commander, then we were the leader of our class. All that's left is the big chair, baby!

I've always thought that comic had some weird status in canon, what with it taking place in the reasonably distant future. I don't like the idea of locking the story into any kind of preset trajectory.

Sure, they probably weren't ever going to kill off Anduin or Velen, but if that comic's to be believed, any situation in which they appear immediately sees its stakes disappear, given that we know they're going to pull through.

I'd like it to be Vanessa or Moira, but I doubt anyone even cares about the Stonemasons Guild (or whatever it was called) anymore, and Moira isn't pretty or pure enough.

This is more likely than I'd like.

Any chance of a Stavromula Beta?

I see two long celebrated trends converging on this one.

1. Shacking up important human characters with High Elves.
2. Turning the Night Elves into discount High Elves.

Maiev Shadowsong is your next queen of Stormwind.

How foolish. If he doesn't end up as Wrathion's concubine, he'll obviously marry his mentor's adoptive daughter and heir, Yrel.

If we are using a discount elf to marry off to Anduin, it'll be Shandris. If Tyrande is the ruler, and Shandris is the adoptive daughter...

Edit: obviously we need the Bachelor: Azeroth edition.

Yrel! Tess! Shandris! Vanessa! Moira! Jaina! Sylvanas! who will win the young kings heart and become the next queen of stormwind!

Well having a non-human leader of the Alliance might even shut Lena up. Points for that.

Whomever is betrothed to Anduin I hope the marriage ceremony occurs outside of the game; I don't want another Thrall/Aggra with sworn enemies gathered to watch or part of a cross faction quest line.

Next to Warlady Jaina he seems to be the only voice of reason in the Alliance (since frankly i have a hard time seeing Velen ACTUALLY consider his people part of the Alliance, seeing how he gives zero fucks about working with the Horde if it gets shit done - which is what things SHOULD be like) so he's going to bite it sooner or later. And all-out war is a likely candidate for that, especially if they kill off someone on the Horde side too.
As for who'd lead Stormwind... i mean, who cares? For all of Vanilla, the Stormwind king was a stock boy-NPC with Bolvar Fordragon being head of that faction in all but name. For quite a while we didn't even know who was leading the Orcs after Thrall died. And who's the Trolls' leader right now? Point is: as long as there's an NPC to kill for the pvp mount, it doesn't matter who leads a capital. My money'd be on Jaina though.

I think Vanessa would make for the most interesting romance story. They both have a lot of baggage with each other which would be fun to see them work through. It would work as a nice redemption story for her and would be good see Anduin make up for the mistakes of his father.

I'm more miffed about Army of Light still being a thing 30 years from now.

I always liked hi marrying Vanessa VanCleef. It's poetic, even.

Also, they'd make a great pair: while he heals everyone, she saps and assassinates anyone trying to get to him.

Crack? Yrel, because she kinda shares his character theme of "young and slightly insecure chosen of the light" and he's on record about finding Draenei women quite attractive. Or Sylvannas, because it would be ROTFLMAO material to see the ensuing rage.

Realistically, though, Yrel is never going to show up again and Sylvannas is far too gone to care about anyone that isn't herself and, maybe, Nathanos.

By my calculations, Jaina is supposed to be on her late twenties to early forties by now, and she was about the same age as Arthas, who was in turn younger than Calia. Calia's model seem to be rather youthful, though, so maybe they kind of retconned that part specifically with this in mind. She also became a priest out of nowhere...

I wouldn't like to see a Calia pairing, though, because frankly it would be predictable and boring. Same reason I don't want to see Anduin and Tess. The prince and the princess, whose parents/grandparents were brother in arms. Blergh. Not to mention that inevitable succession crisis.

The best option, IMHO, is Lorna Crowley. She's minor nobility, so it would avoid both the "prince and princess" cliche and the "prince and charming commoner girl" one. Plus, she seems to be a warrior, and quite an aggressive one at that, if her appearances in Legion are to be believed, which could be a nice balance for Anduin's more passive and idealistic behavior.

I still put my money on Blizzard failing to address the issue of succession altogether.

The last time WoW focused on a romantic plot it went over so well with the general public.

Yes, and after they put so much effort into making it so interesting and tasteful.

Might as well marry Calia Menethil -even though she seems to have abandoned her family name- so that King Anduin can shore-up the Alliance's claim to Lordaeron in Battle for Azeroth. Plus Calia is, you know, human - so she can actually provide heirs unlike many of the other names mentioned here.

You know that biracial kids exist and that Blizzard has never said X and Y races can’t breed.

Interbreeding... Do you want another Medan? Because that's how you get another Medan.

I agree, this is the most likely scenario. And I'm OK with it.
