Obscure Varian being the posterboy for the Alliance? Why not just as well make Gorkan Bloodfist the Warchief of the Horde while we're at it? Bolvar's fine as it is.
Varian had more backstory in Vanilla when he was missing than Bolvar ever did
just sayin...

Was Varian's backstory in Vanilla anything more than "missing king?"

And Arator's backstory is "son of Turalyon and Alleria." Blizzard could've given him more, if they wanted. They gave Varian a comic, a book, a couple quest chains, etc.

Arator could've easily filled Varian's current spot as "face of the Alliance."

Aw. He just wants a hug.


In all serious, I kinda would want to see Med'an in game from sheer morbid curiosity. I wonder if any of his involvement would be basically as a joke character based on how much (justified) fan-hate he gets or if they'd actually try to seriously do a story with him.

His character would probably work better in game than it did in the comics. Not that I particularly want to see his character anywhere.

He should tell players to do useless quests only for him to say it was pointless anyway all the while having that face from the picture

If Med'an was to be a part of the game, then I'd have been happy if he were just part of the Cho'gall fight in Bastion of Twilight. But he really is a terribly unlikeable character and I think Blizzard is starting to agree with that sentiment.

Funny how he has both his arms armored up but his torso's naked.

Silence. I like Med'an plenty.

Med'an was easily the weakest member of the New Council. He's their guardian because he works well as a conduit, not because he's some master of multi-classing.

Funny. I like Med'an too, I was a bit bummed out that he didn't show up in the Cataclysm.

Med'an should've been what was shot out of the Dragon Soul.

Sadly its a overused phrase by internet trolls who think there setting the curve. More's the case there people who just copy what someone else says and goes with it rather then forming a creative thought in there unimaginative minds.
