Anduin Llane Wrynn, King of Stormwind, is a ranged Healer hero from the Warcraft franchise. As a young man, Anduin sought peace as a priest of the Holy Light and an envoy of the Alliance. After his father, Varian, fell to the Burning Legion, Anduin took up the crown as High King of the Alliance. He soon learned that peace must be fought for, even in the Nexus.

Background[edit | edit source]

Warcraft This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft universe.

Anduin Wrynn is the son of Varian Wrynn and heir to the throne of Stormwind. Anduin was for a time following his father's disappearance the king of Stormwind, but following Lady Prestor's unmasking and Varian's return, the latter took up the mantle of king again. His relationship with his father has always been somewhat strained: although he loves and respects his father, he prefers a more peaceful approach to foreign relations, and does not agree with the king's more aggressive tactics. However as time wore on, he began to rub off on his father, who became more appreciative of diplomacy and peaceful tactics. He is also close with Jaina Proudmore and views her as a family member, affectionately calling her "aunt", and was dismayed by her change in personality and world-view as a result of Garrosh Hellscream's actions. He was subsequently relieved when she finally returned to her senses during the Blood War.

In his teenager years, Anduin took up training in the ways of the Light and became a priest, and soon after became a pupil of the Prophet Velen, leader of the draenei. Anduin becomes the King of Stormwind after his father dies heroically against Gul'dan and the Burning Legion, during the Battle for Broken Shore. After taking the throne, Genn Greymane became his second-in-command and military advisor.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Anduin is a ranged Healer that excels at protecting himself and his allies at the same time using shields and heals. His trait is Leap of Faith, which can be activated to pull an ally to Anduin's location. His basic abilities include Flash Heal, a heal on a short channel and very short cooldown; Divine Star, a heavenly bolt that damages enemies then returns to Anduin and heals allies; and Chastise, a swell of light that damages and roots the first enemy hero hit.

His first heroic is Holy Word: Salvation, which surrounds Anduin in a holy field that rapidly heals nearby allies and protects them from all damage. His second heroic is Lightbomb, which imbues an ally with the Light, causing them to damage and stun nearby enemies after a delay then gain a shield that scales based on how many enemies were hit.

Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • Strong burst healing
  • Can protect himself quite well
  • Both Heroic Abilities are viable choices
  • Powerful late game
  • Leap of Faith counters crowd control

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Limited mobility
  • Delayed Healing
  • Low area of effect healing
  • Has limited synergy with most heroes
  • Fixed talent builds.
