Interactions[edit | edit source]

Hero Quote Audio Background
Emoji Yrel Pack 1 Yrel Happy.png

Alliance Hero

  • Anduin: Champions of the Alliance, our time has come! We march to victory!
  • Alliance hero: <hero dependent>
Anduin is the High King of the Alliance and King of Stormwind. His line in the first interaction is a reference to the quest "Hour of Reckoning", in which he says "Champions of the Alliance, the time has come for us to claim what is rightfully ours!" when calling Alliance players to the Battle for Lordaeron.[1]
  • Alliance hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: For Stormwind! For the Alliance!

Hero from Alternate Reality

  • Anduin: Are you–? I mean, you look a lot like... actually, I don't want to know.
  • Alt-reality hero: <hero dependent>
  • Alt-reality hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: Alright, I'm just going to say it... This is weird.
Emoji Tyrael Pack 1 Tyrael Meh.png

Angel Hero

  • Anduin: To fight beside a being of such purity. It is an honor to be your ally.
  • Angel: <hero dependent>
  • Angel: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: An angel?! By the light... I've read texts about your kind! I thought they were apocryphal!
This is a reference to Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, in which the humans' religion contained explicit references to archangels, God, Hell, and other Judeo-Christian concepts. This was drastically toned down and retconned in later games in favor of the humans instead having a nontheistic faith based around the Holy Light (though it's still pretty heavily Christian-themed). There are still references to angels in WoW every now and then, but they're little more than easter eggs. Of course, in Diablo, angels are very much real and present.[1]
Emoji Hanzo Pack 1 Hanzo Happy.png

Archer Hero

  • Anduin: Excellent, we could use an accomplished archer! Steady aim, friend.
  • Archer: <hero dependent>
Emoji Arthas Pack 1 Arthas Meh.png

Arthas

  • Anduin: Arthas? That's not possible. We defeated you... What is this place?
  • Arthas: Silence.

From Anduin's point in the timeline, Arthas has already been dead for about 6 years. Of course, the Nexus doesn't care about the timelines of the various universes or if it makes sense for a hero to be alive or not.[1]
  • Arthas: You..
  • Anduin: You offer naught but slavery and torment. Any true king would see that.

Emoji Auriel Pack 1 Auriel Meh.png

Auriel

  • Anduin: Such wondrous light... It's as if your very presence fills my heart with hope and joy.
  • Auriel: Our hope shall be fulfilled!

  • Auriel: Embrace your hope. It shall lead us to victory in the end.
  • Anduin: Never lose hope.

One of Anduin's farewell quotes in WoW.[1]
Emoji Chromie Pack 1 Chromie Happy.png

Chromie

  • Anduin: Chronormu! (realizing) Oh, wait, I hope this doesn't mean the timestream is out of sorts.
  • Chromie : Don't worry, we make it through this one... I think. You know, all these battles blend together.

As a bronze dragon, Chronormu's (Chromie's) job is to keep the timeways in order. Anduin met and fought alongside her during Garrosh's trial, in which she and her fellow dragon Kairozdormu had the job of using the Vision of Time to show visions of past events.[1]
Emoji Deckard Pack 1 Deckard Happy.png

Deckard Cain

  • Anduin: The magic you wield is fascinating! After the battle would you mind if I stayed awhile and discussed it with you?
  • Deckard Cain: Very well.

Emoji Cho Pack 1 Cho Happy.png

Dead Hero

  • Anduin: I'm sorry, but aren't you supposed to be dead?
  • Dead: <hero dependent>
Many heroes who are alive and well in the Nexus are long dead in their original franchises. Deceased Warcraft heroes include characters like Anub'arak, Cho'gall, Kael'thas, and Zul'jin.[1]
Emoji Diablo Pack 1 Diablo Happy.png

Diablo

  • Anduin: I don't know what you're up to, demon. But I will not allow your evil to spread.
  • Diablo: I would destroy you if I could!

  • Diablo: Ugh, you.
  • Anduin: All new demons... same old mindset.

While different in many ways, most Diablo and Warcraft have similar ambitions of invading, corrupting, and destroying worlds.[1]
Emoji E.T.C. Pack 1 E.T.C. Happy.png

E.T.C.

  • Anduin: A-are you real? You're nothing like any tauren I've met...
  • E.T.C.: You know it, bro.

As a peaceful tribal race in tune with the earth and nature, most tauren aren't exactly known for being avatars of rock music, unlike Elite Tauren Chieftain who is semi-unique to HotS and more of a joke character.[1]
Emoji Garrosh Pack 1 Garrosh Happy.png

Garrosh

  • Anduin: Garrosh Hellscream. I should never have wasted my words on you.
  • Garrosh: Your people are weak and fragile. Do not become a liability in this fight.

Anduin had a few run-ins with Garrosh, most notably when trying to stop him from using the mogu artifact called the Divine Bell. During Garrosh's trial in Pandaria, Anduin (on the orc's request) began regularly visiting him in his cell in the hopes of convincing him to change his evil ways. However, this proved futile, as at the end of the trial Garrosh gleefully declared that he regretted nothing before escaping with the help of Kairozdormu.[1]
  • Garrosh: Treacherous Alliance dog. Get in my way, and I'll cut you down.
  • Anduin: No, Garrosh. I'm afraid you're the one who gets cut down to size.

Same as the above.
Emoji Greymane Pack 1 Greymane Happy.png

Greymane

  • Anduin: Genn, ready to step into the breach once more, my friend?
  • Greymane: You're one of the few around here I trust, you know.

Genn Greymane was a close friend of Varian and began acting as an advisor and almost surrogate father figure to Anduin after Varian's death (Genn had previously lost his own son, Liam, during the fall of Gilneas).[1]
  • Greymane: If I am to accept help, then I am it comes from you.
  • Anduin: And as long as I live, I shall gladly give it.

Same as the above.
Emoji Gul'dan Pack 1 Gul'dan Happy.png

Gul'dan

  • Anduin: Gul'dan. When this is over, you will pay for every life you've taken. All of the anguish you've caused.
  • Gul'dan: Never.

The main universe's Gul'dan engineered the creation of the original demon-corrupted Horde that destroyed Stormwind in the First War. The alternate Gul'dan was sent to Azeroth by the Burning Legion to usher in the greatest demonic invasion ever, with the warlock personally killing Varian at the Battle for Broken Shore.[1]
  • Gul'dan:You..
  • Anduin: Try me, warlock. Stormwind will never fear you or your ilk again.

Same as above.
Emoji Rexxar Pack 1 Rexxar Happy.png

Horde Hero

  • Anduin: There are members of the Horde with honor and those without. Let's see which you are.
  • Horde Hero: <hero dependent>
Though the Horde are the main enemies of the Alliance, Anduin still respects many of their members and hopes to one day create peace between the factions, while also acknowledging that some (like Warchief Sylvanas) will never change their ways and will always be an obstacle to that goal.[1]
  • Horde Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: Put your grievances aside. We have a common enemy to deal with. Again...
Pokes fun at how "the Alliance and Horde putting aside their differences to unite against a common threat" is a plot that's been repeated so many times throughout the series since Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos that it's almost become a meme at this point.[1]
Emoji Illidan Pack 1 Illidan Happy.png

Illidan

  • Anduin: Illidan? If you're here, who's watching over Sargeras?
  • Illidan: What do you think?

At the end of the Argus Campaign, Sargeras—ruler of the Burning Legion—was imprisoned by his fellow titans at the Seat of the Pantheon. Illidan volunteered to stay behind and become Sargeras' jailer for eternity.[1]
Emoji Imperius Pack 1 Imperius Happy.png

Imperius

  • Imperius: Are you ready to slaughter these vermin?
  • Anduin: Being brave doesn't mean you have to seek out trouble, you know.

Emoji Jaina Pack 1 Jaina Happy.png

Jaina

  • Anduin: Jaina! Thank the Light you've come! You are sorely needed in this fight.
  • Jaina: Anduin, you've changed so much. What happened to you?

Another example of Nexus anachronisms: the default version of Jaina in HotS is a much younger version than the one Anduin's used to, from a time when she was still known as a woman of peace (and still had blonde hair, not yet bleached white by the mana bomb that destroyed Theramore). Anduin's quote in the first interaction is taken from a line he says to Jaina after she arrives to the Battle for Lordaeron.[1]
  • Jaina: Anduin! Is that you? I can't believe how much you've grown!
  • Anduin: Jaina? Is that you? You seem... different. It's like I'm looking through time.

Same as Above.
Emoji Jaina Dreadlord Pack 1 Dreadlord Jaina Happy.png

Jaina with Dreadlord skin

  • Anduin: You think you can break us through deception? Our Alliance is stronger than that...
  • Dreadlord Jaina: Still just a child.

Nathrezim like Dreadlord Jaina usually rely on manipulation and deception to destroy mortal civilizations.[1]
  • Dreadlord Jaina: The boy king. The Legion does not spare children.
  • Anduin: Strong words from one whose master is now imprisoned. Or were you unaware, demon?

Emoji Jaina Pack 1 Jaina ROFL.png

Jaina with Theramore skin

  • Jaina: Anduin! Is that you? I can't believe how much you've grown!
  • Anduin: I've got your back, Jaina. Always will.

Though not related by blood, Anduin and Jaina have long shared a close bond, with Anduin fondly calling her "Aunt Jaina". Before the destruction of Theramore turned her much more bellicose, Jaina served as a role model for Anduin as they both had a love of peace and diplomacy over violence.[1]
Emoji Junkrat Pack 1 Junkrat Happy.png

Junkrat

  • Anduin: Ah, you're certainly an... interesting... personality.
  • Junkrat: Why so serious?

Emoji Li Li Pack 1 Li Li Happy.png

Li Li

  • Anduin: Li Li! Are you ready for your next adventure to begin?
  • Li Li: I am so excited right now!

Emoji Li-Ming Pack 1 Li-Ming Happy.png

Li-Ming

  • Anduin: Ah, the wizard! I've never seen arcane spell like those before. Absolutely fascinating.
  • Li-Ming: Wait until you see what I can do.

Since she hails from a different franchise, the arcane magic used by Li-Ming is different from the arcane used by the Warcraft mages Anduin is used to.[1]
  • Li-Ming: This'll be a fun battle, I can tell!
  • Anduin: Fun? Do you do this a lot?

Li-Ming is one of the older heroes in the nexus when compared to Anduins relatively recent arrival, as such she has in fact done this a lot.
Emoji Lúcio Pack 1 Lúcio Happy.png

Lúcio

  • Anduin: Such... eclectic music. How are you doing that without an instrument?
  • Lúcio: Oh, they have no idea what's about to hit 'em! (laughs)

Emoji Lunara Pack 1 Lunara Happy.png

Lunara

  • Lunara: What are you staring at?
  • Anduin: Uh, nothing! I-I've just never actually spoken to dryad before. Uhm... hi!

Emoji Malfurion Pack 1 Malfurion Happy.png

Malfurion

  • Anduin: Well met, Archdruid. May Elune grant us strength.
  • Malfurion: Come friend, the field of battle lies before us.

As co-ruler of the night elves, Malfurion is one of Anduin's fellow Alliance leaders. Elune is a moon goddess worshipped by the night elves, and "May Elune grant us strength" is one of Malfurion's poke quotes in Cataclysm.[1]
  • Malfurion: I hope you're ready to begin.
  • Anduin: The Light is with us, Archdruid. We will not falter.

Same as above.
Emoji Muradin Pack 1 Muradin Happy.png

Muradin

  • Anduin: Thane Bronzebeard. Can't believe I get to see the legend in action...
  • Muradin: C'mon let's go bust a few heads, eh?

  • Muradin: So... Ya ready to bust a few heads, eh?
  • Anduin: You first, Muradin. I'll be right behind you.

Emoji Murky Pack 1 Murky Happy.png

Murky

  • Anduin: I am so sorry for what others have done to you, young murloc... I pray that there can be peace between us one day.
  • Murky: <Response indicating he is excited and ready to fight>
Murlocs are one of the most repeatedly killed species in the entirety WoW as most early game quests require eradicating their beachfront towns, multiple times even!
  • Murky: <Playfully questioning the person next to him>
  • Anduin: Hearing that sound come from my ally is a surreal experience.
The iconic murloc attack noise, "RwlRwlRwl", is feared by many WoW players as it's usually associated with being ganged up on and killed by swarms of the little fish men.[1]
Emoji Nazeebo Pack 1 Nazeebo Happy.png

Nazeebo

  • Anduin: A human witch doctor? Interesting... Well, may the loa protect you my friend!
  • Nazeebo: My soul is prepared.
Unlike Diablo, Warcraft witch doctors are almost exclusively found among trolls and not humans. "Loa" is the collective term for the various gods and spirits worshipped by the troll tribes.[1]
Emoji Nova Pack 1 Nova Happy.png

Nova

  • Anduin: Nova. ...So uh, n-nice weather today... isn't it?
  • Nova: Couldn't agree more.

There's a bit of a running joke in the WoW community about Anduin having crushes on various women (he is only 18, after all). As far as I know, this mostly stems from the novel The Shattering, in which Anduin forms a close bond with the pretty dwarf warrior Aerin and, in one scene, is briefly enraptured by the beauty of an unnamed draenei shaman.[1]
  • Nova: Look who it is. This ought to be interesting.
  • Anduin: Look, I'm not Valerian. Or "Stormwind Valerian." Whatever that means!

Valerian Mengsk is a character from StarCraft who is similar to Anduin to an almost silly degree: they're both human princes with benevolent personalities and blond hair that they inherited from their mothers (in contrast to their dark-haired, aggressive fathers), they both become rulers after the deaths of both their parents, and they both even have the same same voice actor, Josh Keaton.[1]
Emoji Orphea Pack 1 Orphea Happy.png

Orphea

  • Anduin: You carry a great darkness, in more ways than one... but I believe you will do what's right with it.
  • Orphea: You still have a lot to learn about these realms.

  • Orphea: I don't recognize you from any of the battles I've seen. Are you new here?
  • Anduin: Oh, thank you. You're not so bad yourself. I-uhmm... I mean... I-I didn't mean it like... uh... sorry.

  • Orphea: I don't recognize you from any of the battles I've seen. Are you new here?
  • Anduin: I am, actually. Is it that easy to tell?

Emoji Tracer Pack 1 Tracer Happy.png

Overwatch Hero

  • Anduin: Amazing! Are you from the future?
  • Overwatch hero: <hero dependent>
Emoji Probius Pack 1 Probius Happy.png

Probius

  • Anduin: Aww, aren't you a curious automaton? Where is your artificer at?
  • Probius: <beeps>
Possibly a reference to draenei artificers, the engineers and craftsmen of that race's society.[1]
Emoji Tassadar Pack 1 Tassadar Happy.png

Protoss Hero

  • Anduin: Well met, warrior. Are you ready to serve the Alliance?
  • Protoss: <hero dependent>
  • Protoss: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: And... you... I-I'm sorry, but are a draenei? Maybe with some extreme mutation?
The protoss of StarCraft and draenei of Warcraft share many similarities, from their appearance and story themes to their culture and technology. Anduin isn't the first to make this mistake, either; in one his HotS interactions, Fenix mistakes Yrel for a protoss. It's worth mentioning that Anduin has a particularly close ties with the draenei after having lived and studied with their leader Velen for months.[1]
Emoji Qhira Pack 1 Qhira Happy.png

Qhira

  • Anduin: Think you can train me in the ways of the sword? I'm... still getting accustomed to mine.
  • Qhira: Some causes are hopeless. Stick with what you're good at.

  • Qhira: You are a king, are you not? Finally someone who can afford my services.
  • Anduin: I am accustomed to the ways of mercenaries and adventurers. I have some gold around here, um, a blue item at least.

Anduin's response is a reference to him (along with other World of Warcraft characters) being a Quest giver that rewards the Adventurer with gold and items.
Emoji Ragnaros Pack 1 Ragnaros Meh.png

Ragnaros

  • Anduin: The people of Azeroth will not suffer your burning rage any longer, Fire Lord.
  • Ragnaros: MY FLAMES ARE ETERNAL!

  • Ragnaros: ARE YOU PREPARED TO SERVE ME, MORTAL?
  • Anduin: No.

Emoji Raynor Pack 1 Raynor Happy.png

Raynor

  • Anduin: Ah, Commander Raynor! I've heard tales of your bravery. I look forward to seeing you in action.
  • Raynor: This ought to be good.

Emoji Sylvanas Pack 1 Sylvanas Meh.png

Sylvanas

  • Anduin: Sylvanas. You will answer for your crimes.
  • Sylvanas: Hold your tongue, or I'll tear it out.

As Warchief of the Horde, Sylvanas serves as Anduin's main opponent in the ongoing Blood War, and he has sworn to bring her to justice for crimes like burning the World Tree Teldrassil and all the night elves in it. Anduin's first line is a reference to "Hour of Reckoning", in which he says "The Horde and their Warchief must answer for their crimes!", as well as the later Battle for Lordaeron during which he states "Sylvanas will finally answer for her crimes."[1]
  • Sylvanas: I thought I was done suffering fools.
  • Anduin: Better to be a fool, than an honorless monster.

Same as above.
Emoji Tyrande Pack 1 Tyrande Happy.png

Tyrande

  • Anduin: High Priestess! With you at our side, we'll be unstoppable. For the Alliance!
  • Tyrande: Together, our victory is assured.

  • Tyrande: It gladdens my heart to see you once more, friend.
  • Anduin: And mine as well, Tyrande. I know I failed your people... that will not happen again.

As the other co-ruler of the night elves, Tyrande is another of Anduin's fellow Alliance leaders. During the War of the Thorns, Anduin and the Alliance were unable to stop Sylvanas from burning Teldrassil, destroying the night elf homeland and committing genocide against the race.[1]
Emoji Uther Pack 1 Uther Happy.png

Uther

  • Anduin: Lord Uther! The Alliance has gained a powerful ally this day!
  • Uther: Glory to the Alliance!

Despite his death during the Third War, Uther is remembered to this day as a great hero of the Alliance.[1]
  • Uther: Always proud to serve alongside another soldier of the Alliance.
  • Anduin: Here here! For the Alliance!

Same as above.
Emoji Valla Pack 1 Valla Happy.png

Valla

  • Anduin: Are you sure you're a demon hunter? Don't you need a blindfold or... something?
  • Valla: I sure hope not.

Diablo demon hunters differ drastically from Warcraft demon hunters, who are typically elves that bind their spirits to a demon. The process causes the elves to see visions of the Burning Legion so horrific that they rip out their own eyes, after which they usually wear blindfolds, but in the process they also gain a magical ability called spectral sight.[1]
Emoji Varian Pack 1 Varian Happy.png

Varian

  • Anduin: Father!? How is this possible? We've... I've had to endure so much without you...
  • Varian: I will always watch over you, my son. No matter what.

This one speaks for itself, I think. Also, I want to know who started cutting onions in here.[1]
  • Varian: Anduin, my son. You've grown.
  • Anduin: Father? It's really you!? I don't believe this...

Dammit I had just recovered from the first one now I gotta go cry in the corner for like 5 more minutes.[1]
Emoji Sonya Pack 1 Sonya Happy.png

Warrior Hero

  • Warrior: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: Uh, priest, actually. Despite the armor... and sword... eh, you know what, it's fine.
Emoji Whitemane Pack 1 Whitemane Happy.png

Whitemane

  • Anduin: End this myopic crusade of yours, Whitemane. Come back to the Light!
  • Whitemane: I do not answer to you.

While the Scarlet Crusade wield the Light and consider their cause to be righteous, most others—including the Alliance—see them as dangerous, corrupted extremists.[1]
  • Whitemane: Hm. You are unworthy of the Scarlet Crusade.
  • Anduin: And I consider it an honor.

Same as above.
Emoji Xul Pack 1 Xul Happy.png

Xul

  • Anduin: Xul! When this is over I'd love to learn more about the Balance... Good necromancers are such a strange concept.
  • Xul: Come, we will uphold the balance together.

Xul's order—the Priests of Rathma—seek to maintain a Balance between light and darkness, believing that if either side ever defeats the other, it'll mean the doom of humanity. Diablo necromancers stand in sharp contrast to Warcraft necromancers, who are almost always evil and sadistic.[1]
Emoji Yrel Pack 1 Yrel Happy.png

Yrel

  • Anduin: Come, Exarch. We have a battle to win. For the Alliance!
  • Yrel: For the Alliance!

Yrel's people, the draenei of an alternate universe Draenor, were saved from the rampaging Iron Horde by Alliance adventurers from the main universe. "Exarch" is one of Yrel's titles, denoting her position on the ruling Council of Exarchs. Anduin's second line is a reference to "In the Light, we are one", a quote usually associated with Yrel.[1]
  • Yrel: My people owe the Alliance a great debt. Today, I repay it.
  • Anduin: Through unity, our Alliance grows stronger. We are one in the light, afterall...

Same as above.
Emoji Zagara Pack 1 Zagara Happy.png

Zerg Hero

  • Anduin: The Sillithid of the Nexus look very strange... further Old God corruption, perhaps..
  • Zerg: <hero dependent>
The silithid are a vicious insectoid race that inhabit southern Kalimdor and act as some of the many servants of the eldritch Old Gods. They come in a wide variety of forms, some of which look kinda like zerg. It's worth mentioning that Cho'gall also mistakes zerg characters for silithid in one of his HotS interactions.[1]
Emoji Anduin Pack 1 Anduin Happy.png

Emoji Anduin Pack 1 Anduin Meh.png

  • Anduin: Diplomacy is never easy. Less so with you around.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: I cannot say I approve of this particular alliance.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>

  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: Have you considered keeping your opinions to yourself? I hear it does wonders.

  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: Evil will never prosper as long as good remains vigilant.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: I despise even being associated with you.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: Your behavior will remain in check, or I will keep it in check, myself.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: What was that? Are... are you trying to have a conversation? Uhm, hello?
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: You know I'm king now, right?
One of Anduin's irritated poke quotes in Legion.[1]
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: You'll have to expound upon that later.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: Now, is the time to stop... you're making a fool of yourself.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: You are absolutely miserable to be around... you know that?
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: That, will not be happening.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: (scoffs) Very well.
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: I'm sorry, but I believe you may have mistaken me for someone else...

  • Anduin: Has anyone ever conveyed how exhausting you can be?
  • Hero: <hero dependent>
  • Anduin: I've heard enough from you!

Eliminations[edit | edit source]

Hero Quote Audio Background
vs. Alliance hero A regrettable outcome. As High King of the Alliance, it obviously doesn't sit right with Anduin to kill members of his own faction.[1]
vs. evil hero A great malady has been expelled from this place.
We have done good here.
The darkness has been expelled.
vs. Garrosh You had every chance to change. This was your doing. Another reference to Anduin's attempts at redeeming Garrosh during his trial (see Garroshes Interaction for more details).
vs. ghost Be cleansed, spirit. Reference to the Mists of Pandaria quest "Rest in Peace", in which Anduin says this when putting Tortured Spirits to rest.[1]
vs. holy hero Oh, may the Light forgive me.
vs. Horde hero For the Alliance! The battlecry for most, if not all, alliance members.
vs. Jaina Aunt Jaina, if you're holding back for my sake, don't. Jaina and Anduin are not biologically related, but they still fondly consider each other "Aunt" and "Nephew".[1]
vs. machine-user Anything made can be broken. Anduin says this during the Battle for Lordaeron when Sylvanas unleashes an Azerite War Machine on the Alliance forces.[1]
vs. Sylvanas It's over, Sylvanas. When confronting Sylvanas in her throne room during the Battle for Lordaeron, Anduin tells her "Sylvanas Windrunner, you have led the Horde to a place without honor. Lordaeron is ours. It's over."[1]
vs. Thrall A leader cannot abandon the fight for peace. Likely a poke at how Thrall, once known for promoting diplomacy between the Alliance and Horde, has (so far) been absent from most recent world events, even as the world was threatened by the Burning Legion and the Horde he himself founded ended up getting involved in a new, brutal war against the Alliance.[1]
vs. Varian You almost had me there, father. Let's duel again!
vs. Whitemane We must take caution not to become the monsters we face.

Quote Audio Background
Greetings friend. His "Hello" Emote from Hearthstone as well as a general poke quote from WoW. [1]
A king is only as noble as the cause he serves. A poke quote from WoW (specifically his appearances from Legion onwards).[1]
Please, now is not the time for that... Also, it will never be the time for that. One of Anduin's "irritated" (triggering from being repeatedly clicked) poke quotes in WoW is "Now is not the time for that."[1]
The Light will abolish the shadow in all its forms. I, personally, would never resort to its dark methods. The Light and the Shadow (AKA the Void) are the two main cosmic forces of the Warcraft universe, manifesting in the physical world as holy magic and shadow magic, respectively. Wielders of holy magic usually distrust the dark, vampiric shadow magic as evil and unholy, but while the two forces are archenemies, one cannot exist without the other.[1]
Except when playing Hearthstone, sometimes that game brings out the worst in me. Canonically, Anduin has almost always exclusively used the Light. However, in Hearthstone (where Anduin is the default priest hero), the priest class has access to a number of Void-themed abilities used by Shadow priests in WoW. The non-canon Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion (a "what-if" scenario exploring what would happen if the heroes of Warcraft became death knights) takes this a step further with Shadowreaper Anduin, a death knight version of Anduin that has fully embraced the power of the Void.[1]
A lot of people don't realize how difficult and awkward it is to grow up in the spotlight. Your every success, and every failure laid bare in front of the entire world... of Warcraft. Obvious pun on World of Warcraft, and also probably a joke about how WoW players have watched Anduin grow up over the years, going from a 10-year-old boy king in classic WoW, to an idealistic teenage prince in Cataclysm and Mists of Pandaria, and finally the 18-year-old High King he is today.[1]
Hmm? Oh, actually, I am still wearing the helmet. It's just transmogrified to hidden. Anduin normally wears a distinctive lion helmet in battle, but it's notably absent from his HotS model. Transmogrification is a cosmetic system in WoW in which players can pay gold to change the appearance of their armor and weapons to look like other items of the same type, or hide them from view altogether.[1]
You know, those shadow priests are a bad influence. If one mind-controlled you and asked you to jump off a bridge would you do it? The answer is yes, by the way... Yuck. One of the more notable Shadow priest abilities in WoW is Mind Control, which allows them to control the actions of a hostile creature for 30 seconds. It's especially useful in PvP combat to force pesky enemy players to jump off cliffs or bridges to their deaths. This quote is slightly ironic since Anduin himself is known for having once used Mind Control to escape SI:7 agents in Pandaria.[1]
Oh, crud! I forgot to cast fortitude on the group! Ehh, I'm sure one of the other priests on the battleground will get it. Refers to Power Word: Fortitude, a WoW priest spell which increases a friendly target's Stamina for an hour. Like with similar buffs, if Power Word: Fortitude is cast while in a group (such as a raid or PvP battleground), all members would receive the buff, regardless of which priest cast it.[1]
When you really think about it, isn't every race in the Alliance an allied race? Allied races are special playable races in WoW that can only be unlocked after completing certain max-level requirements and mostly consist of alternate "subraces" of existing playable races. More generically, the term "allied" can obviously also be used for all members of the Alliance since they are allied together.[1]
In pandaren board games, the goal is for both players to win. In Hearthstone, the goal is for me to beat you to death... with your own minions. The first part of this is a reference to the Mists of Pandaria legendary quest line, specifically a conversation between Anduin and the Black Prince Wrathion over the pandaren board game jihui. Anduin explained that "It's a Pandaren board game. The object is for both players to win", a concept Wrathion found ridiculous. In Hearthstone, many priest cards revolve around taking control of or copying the opponent's deck, cards, or minions to use their own arsenal against them.[1]
There will be peace, one day. At least I think there will... How many WoW expansions are left again? Oh? Oh! Oh... Well... well, then. "There will be peace. One day" is one of Anduin's signature quotes. The nature of WoW's storytelling means that Azeroth is constantly threatened by new enemies or new conflicts between the Alliance and Horde, plunging it into war once again and making Anduin's goal of world peace seem a bit... unrealistic at times.[1]
Why did the priesthood call it a leap of faith? No one leaps, and it certainly doesn't require faith.... I've always thought "life-grip" would be more accurate. A reference to Death Grip, a WoW death knight ability which instantly pulls a target enemy to the player, similar to how Leap of Faith pulls an ally. Leap of Faith is sometimes nicknamed "Life Grip" by WoW players for this reason.[1]
A paladin, a medic, a DJ, the Archangel of Hope, and a priest walk into a bar. The bartender stops them and says: "Hey! No support groups!" Unfortunately this joke doesn't make much sense anymore since in the curent role system, Uther, Lt. Morales, Lúcio, Auriel, and Anduin are all classed as Healers, not Supports. Ah well.[1]
My father once said that everywhere the Light touches is our kingdom... But not Deadwind Pass. We don't go there. A reference to the 1994 Disney film The Lion King, where Mufasa tells his son Simba the same thing about an elephant graveyard. Deadwind Pass is a region on the eastern outskirts of Stormwind that notably houses Medivh's tower of Karazhan, and fulfills a role similar to the elephant graveyard in The Lion King by being a shadowy place outside the borders of a land ruled by "lions" (House Wrynn).[1]

Event Quote Audio Background
Start of a Match Players spawning Champions of the Alliance, the conflict will erupt shortly. Ready yourselves for battle!
Players spawning (playing as the same hero) Wait, that armor... Did I commission a second?
May the Light guide you to victory, priest.
That hero looks exactly like... me! Is this one Onyxia's tricks? Or am I imagining things? Onyxia, daughter of Deathwing, was a black dragon who tried to destroy Stormwind from within by magically splitting King Varian into two separate beings embodying different parts of his personality, with the intention of using his passive side as a puppet ruler. Eventually, the deception was unraveled, Varian's two halves were reunited, and Onyxia was killed by the king, saving Anduin (who had been kidnapped by the dragon) and the kingdom.[1]
