You people are still complaining about Me'dan like he has some form of relevance to the story, but clearly he doesn't, and people who have not read the comics will know nothing about him.
So, why are you making such a massive deal of it when he isn't even effecting the lore ingame?
The players should be the last gaurdians of tirisfal by now. Whatever theyre saving him for wont be as epic considering if we (the players) didnt stop the elementals, c'thun, neferian, the demons, illidan, the undead, (some) of the old gods, the lich king, some of the elementals again, neferian again, deathwing and more, then he wouldnt be able to be there in the end (or whenever they decide to use him) to upcomingly be the spotlight hero and save the day.
But Im sure Blizzard will come up with some kind of "I have been training in hiding to become OP and save the world" excuse for him, to throw him in the spotlight in one of the upcoming expacs.

"If the people who are trying to destroy this world aren't taking a day off, then why should I?"
I truly hope Me'dan has been dropped because he was an awful character and the biggest, most infuriating mary-sue I've ever seen (and I don't use that word often). Both of his parents are pretty big lore characters (one being perhaps THE biggest lore character), he is a hybrid of 3 different races which is bad enough but he also has all of their strengths and none of their weaknesses (the ability to use light, shaman and arcane magic all at once for example), new Guardian of Tirisfal, instantly impresses every major lore character he comes across, total powerhouse etc. Seriously, it's like Blizzard plucked him straight off some teenager's Deviantart page.
If they've forgotten about him it can only mean good things for WoW's storyline but I doubt they have. He'll likely turn up when the Burning Legion start acting up again.

Perfection is so horribly dull, don't you think?
I really feel like whatever role they intended me'dan to fill was taken over by thrall / anduin / wrathion.
If they were going to add him, it would have been during Cata, there was all that build up between him and cho'gal / the twilights hammer and they wrapped up that story line without even mentioning Me'dan once so I take that to mean that hes out of the story forever.

Me'dan is Sargeras.
Calling it here.
Blackrock Foundry was probably the best part of WOD, but that's really just a blackhanded compliment.
It's not his heritage and shit that makes me dislike him... it's the that fact that he's a paladin/mage/shaman hybrid... I mean... really? How could he not be overpowered?
Good riddance. Awful character.
Your comments are duly noted and ignored.
I punch a hobo every time someone says 'it's not a rotation it's a priority list lol'.
"When the child of the three realms becomes as light, the ancient power will be released. The earth will tremble. The seas will rise up in answer, and all will be madness. A new day will dawn, bringing with it chaos or peace."
Would be cool if it was the rebirth of Draenor prophecy. Land pieces tie together, the seas rise between them, and it finally can have a sun rise as it's not a continent floating at the Nether.
