He still seems a bit too much Mary Sue to me. What would be needed is to introduce a chracter flaw in our young prince. I think a perfect situation would be to reinvestigate the deadmines with a group of adventurers, only to discover that not only Vanessa Van Cleef survived the detonation of the ship, but that Anduin and Vanessa falls madly in love with each other at the end of a new 5 man heroic, deadmines 2.0

You use that word, I do not think you know what it means. Mary Sue means an over powered, creator-driven character that overrides others contributions - say Ronhin, he seems to be so powerful as to face down Deathwing. Solo. Anudin was a blank slate. He was the kings son and... nothing. In Cata, they wrote on it - he's got priestly abilities, and he's noble and doesn't hate the Horde outright. He's willing to judge people individually.

That's gotta be a joke-post, you first rage against Anduin being a Mary Sue and then suggest an idea that will definitely make him one....One of the key things whether a character ends up Mary Sue or not is the execution of the idea, not just the actual idea. There's plenty of popular characters that, when distilled down to their components, wouldn't pass any Mary Sue Litmus tests, but when you place them in their world and give them decisions to make, end up perfectly fine characters.Anduin in particular shone in the Shattering because, despite being a friggin multiclassing Prince, also was the audience stand-in, the person the reader could relate to.
