Varian Wrynn, High King of the Alliance, is a melee multiclass hero from the Warcraft universe. Few would have expected that the gladiator known only as Lo'Gosh was in truth the missing ruler of Stormwind, Varian Wrynn. Now the High King of the Alliance, his every action shapes the destiny of Azeroth itself.

Varian is an adaptable fighter who can become either a shield-bearing warrior or a life-ending assassin based on his talent choices in-game.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

Warcraft This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft universe.

Never one to back down from a difficult task or shy away from the front lines, King Varian Wrynn of Stormwind has always sought to do what he believes is best for his people. Without question, he is eager to pick up a sword and shield in defense of the Alliance, Azeroth, and now... The Nexus. There is no opponent too great nor battlefield too harsh to stop Varian from leading those around him toward victory.

Great leaders know that a successful conquest requires the flexibility to adapt to any new challenges that may arise on the field of battle. Through talents, Varian can be built to fit several different disciplines and is the first multiclass hero to enter the Nexus. Be the shield your team needs by taunting enemies and soaking tons of damage, or split Shalamayne into its component swords, Ellemayne and Shalla'tor, and lead with your blades to cut down any who stand in your way.
