Anduin Wrynn represents the Priest Priest class in Hearthstone.

Official overview[]

Levelheaded and compassionate, the young King Anduin of Stormwind holds a different view of the world than that of his father, the warrior king Varian Wrynn. Where Varian has a taste for combat, Anduin instead found his calling in the Holy Light—a calling that would lead him to play a critical role in the recent conflict on Pandaria. Gather ’round as we tell you more about Anduin’s story. . . .

Anduin Llane Wrynn is named after two legendary figures from Stormwind’s history: his grandfather King Llane Wrynn and Anduin “The Lion of Azeroth” Lothar.

While Varian earned a reputation as proud, skilled swordsman, Anduin lacked the warrior’s instincts required to follow in his father’s footsteps, and demonstrated an empathy and calm that his father sorely lacked. The young King’s deep connection to the Light and affinity for the healing arts would ultimately lead him to train with High Priest Rohan and the draenei Prophet Velen. Under their guidance, he would grow to become an accomplished priest and peacemaker in his own right.

As war between the Alliance and the Horde escalated, Anduin embarked on diplomatic mission to the mysterious continent of Pandaria, determined to help put an end to the deadly conflict brewing there. Outside the shelter of Stormwind, Anduin dared to delve deeper into the mysteries of Pandaria, bringing level-headed rationality to every dangerous encounter and good-natured assistance to everyone he came across on his travels.

Along the way, Anduin proved to be instrumental in helping the Alliance establish friendly relationships with various factions on Pandaria, and he was critical in cooling the flames of war that threatened to consume the continent.

The brave and noble King of Stormwind will stop at nothing to ensure peace and security for his kingdom and its people. Someday, he will make a fine king.

In World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, Anduin drew upon one of the Priest class’s more shadowy skills to force a character into having a sudden change of heart. In Hearthstone, you can use Mind Control to make a minion change their tune, too. Mind Control allows you to take possession of any minion in play . . . and that minion will fight for you until the bitter end![1]

Background[]

Anduin as a boy with Bolvar Fordragon and Katrana Prestor

Young King Anduin carries a heavy burden, but it is the preservation of uneasy peace, not the stratagems of war. The son of Tiffin and Varian Wrynn, Anduin Llane Wrynn is the heir to the throne of Stormwind. Years ago, when his father disappeared, young Anduin was crowned king of Stormwind. Due to his age, he was unable to rule, and the task of regency was given to Highlord Bolvar Fordragon, a venerated paladin of the Alliance. Once King Varian returned to reclaim his throne, the King began to focus his efforts on spiritual matters and diplomacy, traveling throughout Azeroth to understand how he might heal lands and souls ravaged by war. Anduin's spirit and empathy--so unlike his father's warrior impulses--enabled him to form strong bonds with the draenei Prophet Velen and even a few members of the Horde.[2]

During Vanilla WoW, Anduin was the boy-king of Stormwind, when his father was kidnapped by the Defias rogues, led by Edwin VanCleef. Lady Katrana Prestor convinced Bolvar Fordragon to make the boy King in his father's absence.

Anduin was said to be 10 years old upon the release of World of Warcraft — making him about 12 by the end of Wrath of the Lich King, and 15 by the end of Cataclysm. Following Cataclysm, Anduin pulled away from traditional combat training to study the Light; ultimately choosing the path of a priest after being encouraged by King Magni Bronzebeard and High Priest Rohan. During Mists of Pandaria, Anduin traveled to the Vale of Eternal Blossoms to study alongside the night elves.

Anduin possesses remarkable skills with a knife, thanks to Valeera Sanguinar. She served as both his bodyguard and his teacher. King Magni bestowed upon Anduin a mace by the name of Fearbreaker. According to Magni, the mace had been passed down in his family for several hundred years.
