I'm not familiar with the Wow lore,though I've been playing Hearthstone recently... Could we say that Uther(the paladin) is alike Jim Raynor?

I've clearly walked into a place where people are clearly more interested in talking about this Varian character (I honestly don't even know who he is) but I love Jim Raynor. He is probably one of my all time favorite video game characters. I really hope he gets a great pay off in the end. He's definitely earned a hell of a vacation over the last two games.

Would you trust a people who in the past has nearly wiped your own species and has broken nearly every single peace treaty or ceasefire for no apparent reason?

And would you also trust a people who knowingly accepts groups whom you would consider to being twisted and evil and having no respect for life?

Also would you trust a people who have turned their own planet into a wasteland from your perspective?

So you base an entire species on one Orc rather than upon the actions of the majority?

By the way Thrall did a piss poor job at "keeping the peace"

So All of the Orcs that do his bidding are killing Humans so that garrosh doesn't kill Humans?

What great Logic!

No, when Varian first showed up, I hated him because he was arrogant pissant who expected everyone to just shut up and follow him, Blizzard had him singlehandedly kill Onyxia, he instantly took over the alliance and pushed all of their other leaders out of the spot light while everyone talked about how awesome he was.

MygoodGovernor Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2013

So you hate him because he stole what you consider as your kill? that's rather petty of you and how was he arrogant? he did not make himself out to being better than everyone else, nor did he think himself as being above the other nations of the Alliance,  if anything he was the ONLY Alliance leader who did not bend over and let the horde fuck him in the ass like everyone else pretty much did which is one of the reasons why he is currently its High King.

Because he was the only one who was Willing to not let his people or the other Alliance kingdom's people be killed off and lose land little bit by little bit over time.

AND he was the only leader who actually wants to restore Lordaeron to its former Pure state, and back in the hands of the Living Humans of Lordaeron who are still alive, yet scattered throughout the World, but mostly living in Stormwind. 

 

And he did not push over the other leaders, they can leave the Alliance whenever they choose,  Varian is their overall leader because Stormwind is currently the most powerful Alliance Nation, it has the largest Military, the most people, and since the Alliance of today is the successor to the old Alliance of Lordaeron which was an Alliance between the Human Kingdoms primarily. it makes sense that Stormwind, being one of its Original founders, and currently the only Human Kingdom still capable of being a world power, would have the most political leverage over the other nations and races in the Alliance.  

The other Alliance nations are still their own nations, and they can do as they please,  it is not the Horde and Varian is not a Blue Warchief.   

 

Remember one of the main themes of the Alliance is Tradition, so in turn Stormwind gets the most power in the Alliance by being the oldest of the Original Alliance Kingdoms when it was first formed, and by all the other reasons I stated above.

No, I dont think of Onyxia as 'my' kill. I rarely play the game and am mostly interested in the lore. What irks me about it is that he killed what was one of the most difficult bosses singlehandedly just to establish he was a bad ass (After reading all those comics where an amnesic Varian is an unstoppable gladiatot who barely got hurt, that wasnt necessary.)

What I said was "pushed the alliance leaders out of the spot light." And he did. As soon as he showed up, NO ONE else in the alliance mattered. If you were lucky, one of them would show up yo praise him, but that's it. Aside from Malfurion, but that's a different story.

Also note that I said "when he first showed up". Now that Blizzard has rounded Varian's character beyond "exists to facillitate conflict" he's my second favoritr alliance leader.

I'm not going to argue this any further. You obviously don't care that other people can have different opinions on Varian Wrynn. So, goodbye.

That is pretty true. I haven't been able to play WoW in a long time, so I haven't been completely aware of what has been happening (though I've been trying).
Ok, I guess 'hate' is too strong a word. I do kind of like Varian, but I also just find him annoying in general...

:iconmygoodgovernor:
MygoodGovernor Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2012
Blizz have been trying to change him a bit so people will like him more, but there are still those who hate him for the sole reason that he hates horde and that hes not a Jaina proudmoore who till recently was more or less stupid good and basically kissed the Horde's ass to preserve peace even though the horde still did what it wanted regardless. peace is all well and good but not at any cost.

Anyway just look up Varian's lore on Wowpedia to learn all you need to know about him. it reveals much. sadly, most people don't bother learning about him, they go at face value and they see a tyrant. its depressing because Varian is not a tyrant at all if one knows his lore, course then people bring up the whole statue of him in front of the keep yet the rest of the city is still damaged, as well as the whole Westfall fiasco but what people don't bother to do is think about how the statue got there, like was it always there in lore?

Did The people Build it? according to the lore the vast majority of the people Love Varian, even though Westfall would show otherwise, but thats because westfall is an example of a bandit gang using propaganda, Murder, Fear, and starvation to cause the homeless to become desperate and willing to follow almost anyone as long as it will get them out of the hole so to speak, basically useing Terrorisim to get their way just without the suidice bombings.

It is a tragic set of events but the war in northrend had to be fought or else everyone would have been turned into undead and thier souls harvested like crops. and the war caused Stormwind to almost go bankrupt and when people could not pay the tax they got evicted, and if the Treasury of Stormwind does not become replenished then how will the Troopers get paid? how will the marchants get thier wares? how will the people eat? and with Deathwing, the Twilights hammer, the Blackrock Orcs and the Horde attacking the Alliance almost contantly, the Alliance and Stormwind for that matter simply cannot afford to let up on thier Military yetthe Defias twist the truth by saying that Stormwind and King Varian abandoned them and cares for nothing about them only Varian's Ego and Glory and nothing more.

I mean hell If one reads Varian's lore they would see that after his son, his people are the most important things in the world to him even if there is a war going on and because of that lore one should think that it pains him that there are so many homless but if the Military is not kept in tip-top shape then the enemies of the Alliance will kill or enslave everything and everyone because there is no defense to defend them. But the Defias under Vanessa only care about themselves or more accuratly, only about Vanessa herself, see shes a crazy bitch, I mean the words she said at the ending of the westfall questline just reeks of crazy woman.

Did the Military build it? The Alliance Military largely credits Varian with leading the Alliance to Victory in Northrend and as a sign of respect could have placed the statue there and they know as well as Varian does that if the war was not fought then everyone on the planet would be undead or worse.

Did The Nobility have it built? They could have had it commisioned with thier own Gold to try to please Varian's ego, "everyone has an ego", to gain more political power afterall rich snobs are the same power hungry assholes in any universe.

Sorry for the little book chapter in this post, but I needed to say this much to explain things. I know that people hate long reads online and for that I apologize.

I finally got myself to read this. I'll admit I was not expecting such a long reply.
So yeah, I see that you are right. And even though I was slightly annoyed, I found this interesting to read. I might go on that WoW Wiki and read Varian's bio, but it's really long, so...it can wait (though I did read enough to understand why he hates the Horde so much).
Thanks. :D

Wowpedia is more up to date, WoWikki is rather slow these days at updating the lore.

I must say that I am rather surprised, pleasantly but still surprised that you are actually going to read Varian's lore.

Most Varian haters just ignore me or insult me for trying to get them to at least try to Understand him.

So because you are willing, I must say that you are a cut above most.

And believe me Wowpedia is like a goldmine in regarding Warcraft Lore.

:D
