Granted he is a powerful wizard but Stormwind also has an entire district full of magi, in many ways WoW has shown mortal mages to be as capable if not sometime better than dragon mages, oh and we also have Jaina.
But showing him in a way that put's players favorite characters in a negative light isn't going to make him likable OR respectable. Instead, it's going to do exactly what happened. Make people resent him as a character AND say the only reason he got he job is because Blizzard dumbed down the other characters.
Maybe. But so far it seem like Blizz is doing ok if thread if to be believed. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/7924333475
