Going on a pure numbers stand-point: if our modern tanks (and, heck, tanks at the beginning of the expansion technically) can survive incoming blows from Sylvanas, it means the damage she dishes out can't be that much higher than another modern player. With that in mind, as they're both Boss-level characters, they have an explosively large health-pool. Going back and forth attacking, a fight would take at least ten to fifteen minutes. Thinking like that, with Velen as a Draenei, his racial every three minutes alone would probably be enough to keep him alive indefinitely, if we assume he would never use a healing spell (and if we also assume Smite and the like would treat Sylvanas as a humanoid rather than an undead, and that Velen could also not Shackle her and so on).On one corner we have a ranger-general, and on the other we have arguably the most faithful follower of the Light in existence, who has also survived relentless pursuit from the Legion before Sylvanas was probably even an idea. The dude certainly has her on experience. From a pure lore stand-point, additionally, I think Velen has the upper-hand by virtue of simply being a priest. And sure, she can stay alive a few additional times with her Valkyr ressurections, which would in the end matter very little when all Velen has to do is blink his way through whatever damage Sylvanas dishes out. Unless, of course, Sylvanas decides to deploy the plague on Velen, at which point we have to ask if Velen would be able to cleanse it or not and even if he couldn't, if the damage would be enough to prevent him outing her before him.It's certainly interesting to mull over, but the more and more I think about it the more obvious it just seems to me that Velen would win.
