    Not quite. The original Paladins were a mixture of Priests and Knights who combined their skills into a single discipline. Arthas was a second (or third, maybe) generation Paladin, and thus was trained as one from the get-go.

    I kinda like Varian and kinda dislike Anduin, so hopefully we'll be through many expansions before the old ponytail kicks the bucket.
    Now you see it. Now you don't.

    He doesn't have to die for Anduin to take the throne. There are plenty of reasons for it to be plausible for him to let his son rule.

    Does the Horde kill him? Sylvanas rips him and raises him as a forsaken? Maybe Wrathion thinks he's not the guy to lead the Allinace against the Legion?

    My guess would be that Jaina goes full Batshit Human Supremacist Nazi and kills Varian in a power grab.
    I highly doubt Jaina is going batshit - they made it clear in the book that she was tired of being peaceful, but not out to wipe out an entire race. They've had enough main characters go that route, I think it's been played too many times.

    Idgaf how Varian dies, I never liked his story or how he was introduced. The comics we're great but still felt very, I don't know, "me'dan".

    I'd love this, tbh :P An evil Anduin/Arthas 2.0 could potentially be so much more interesting than his current, rather one-dimensional, character.

    I imagine that Varian will have a more heroic death when it comes time for him to die. He'll end up sacrificing himself to save someone else (maybe Anduin or Jaina).
