Class Defining Characters

Story Forum
She's the icon of her WC3 class, which didn't make it into WoW.

Certainly, she must be a Priestess (with warrior/hunter elements), but she does not define that class. It's just the place she fits best considering her station.

I'd actually elect Anduin Wrynn as becoming the most iconic priest. While Velen is obviously wiser and more powerful, his story is dominated by the prophetic part. Anduin meanwhile has a very fundamental compassion that put him on the road. He's got spark.

...
Death Knight- Arthas
Druid- Malfurion
Hunter- Rexxar
Mage- Medivh
Monk- Chen Stormsnout
Paladin- Turalyon
Priest- Velen
Rogue- not sure really (granted, for rogues, that's probably a good thing)
Shaman- Thrall
Warlock- Gul'dan
Warrior- Grom

Also, if its only characters that appear in WoW, replace Turalyon and Grom with Uther and Saurfang.
Anduin isn't seasoned enough to be an icon of anything. He's a precocious teenager and still leveling. His gear isn't gemmed or enchanted and his glyph selection not optimal. He only just picked up dual spec for shadow and is still practicing mind control.

One day he will make a damn fine priest, I'm sure. Then we'll chat.

Garona?

Garona?

Forgot about her.
I thought Lor'themar was a hunter?

He's a ranger. Though he does run around with a sword so he might be a huntard.
I'm surprised no one's mention Cairne for Warrior.

He's iconic, but I'd never say he was more powerful than several of the people he's competing with.
Cairne is certainly powerful. Not Grom powerful. Maybe Saurfang powerful. But I'd say he's stronger than Garrosh and Varian.

I miss that guy, i remember why i want Magatha Grimtotem to implode into bloody chunklets.

Cairne


He's the only horde character I never wanted to see dead =(

I'd have been horde only because of him RIP my dear Cairne.
Death Knight: Arthas
Druid: Malfurion
Hunter: Alleria Windrunner
Mage: Jaina
Monk: Chen Stormstout
Paladin: Uther the Lightbringer
Priest: Velen if Tyrande doesn't count
Rogue: Garona
Shaman: Thrall
Warlock: Gul'dan
Warrior: Anduin Lothar
Mage....you're all saying Jaina Proudmoore..

i see your mage of Dalaran and raise you Queen Azshara

to quote how powerful she is

" but quickly realized the folly of such an attempt when he realized that Azshara kept inside her a power to which only Sargeras, Kil'jaeden or Archimonde would prove superior"

^ basically...Mannoroth sensed her power was only right under that of some of the most powerful demons in wow.... period....

TLDR : "Queen Tentacle schmexy times" beats "lady I dated the lich king"
PRiest: Anduin Wrynn

Let's face it. He is the only priest in lore who has used both shadow and light alike. where as Velen only displays Foresght, smite, healing, and staff strike.
As for warlocks, I really feel as if you guys are missing the real flavor of our class. A more modern lore aficionado would say that Kanrethad is the iconic warlock. Perfect aspirations, humble enough to ground himself, and a real consequence of our power hungriness.
