I really wish they'd write Anduin with a bit more grit. I've tried to like the kid, I really have... but damn me if he isn't the blandest, most naive character I've ever met. His "I think love outlasts everything" attitude just makes me feel like I'm five years old again, coming home from school at 12:30 to watch cartoons that teach me about sharing and being polite. I really hope that he grows up and gets his illusions shattered and becomes a proper, believable royal.

According to the Lore panel, they had NOTHING written for him until Golden wrote this book and pulled him into the storyline. So there really is a lot of room for him to grow up.Don't mistake idealism for naivete though. This is a kid brought up in a world of politics and court intrigue, with Onyxia on one side for a good chunk of time. He figured out something was wrong with Prestor and "Varian" before many others did. He's watched his father struggle with his split personality--and is really set up opposite of it so far, a very different person from his warrior father.Anduin's young enough to believe in a better world and hope, all optimistic and idealistic. It does need tempered with experience and practicality, but I don't think as much naivete as some think. I for one hope he doesn't turn as growly and hateful as his father can be.

I Fear I disagree on this one:Really, do we want to dis-regard Anduin just because he's a Teen that is smart and sensitive? REALLY?I work with youth (teenagers) on a regular basis and... O.M.G. Many of them do not fit the shallow stereo-type of teens!!There are kids that are Wise Beyond Their Age. Get over it! Anduin is NOT a total mutant!
