    Yea, we definitely need him. Like we gonna deal with many old characters coming back so I would love to see Medivh and Khadgar too.

    Kind of weird that Sylvanas/Jailer didn't try to kidnap him and get him to the Maw? Surely they should see him as the most capable adversary?

    Blizzard is probably cycling characters - the ones that "guide us through" expansions - like Lorewalker Cho and now Bolvar. We could definitely expect to see him again once we go into the Light/Void expansion.


    I fully expect to see Medivh and his son Med'an in that expansion, so it would make sense to also see Khadgar.

    The Shadowlands, the after-live, is more the domain to a Priest or Shaman, then a Mage, how exceptional he is.
    Also the Void and Shadow using classes (DK, Warlock...) would even make more sense then a mage...to me...

    DK's don't use Void/Shadow magic.


    For game play purposes, many of their abilities deal Shadow damage. But they are not a Void/Shadow based class.

    He is for sure a Super Saiyan Mary Sue, but alas, he is still canonically "out there" as the developers put it during a 'Legion Summit' interview.

    I stopped believing when they replaced his boring ass with Thrall in Cata.

    ...Me'dan was supposed to be in Cataclysm? If so we dodged a supermassive bullet.

    Speculation only. But judging by the cut C'thun and Cho'gall content in 4.1 and the oddly misplaced presennce and usage of Thrall as a superhero (Which has literally never been used again) I think it is safe to assume that.

    Metzen officially denied that on Twitter a few years back (source). There were plans for Med'an at some point following his appearance in the comics, but what they were isn't known - and thankfully they seem to have opted not to pursue them.

    His fall was not a small one.
    We did but build his pedestal,
    A narrow and a tall one."

    Looks like he did get removed from lore

    He’s been a controversial figure since he was first introduced, and now, he’s been quietly shown the door. Med’an, that omni-powerful New Guardian of Tirisfal last seen in the World of Warcraft comic book, is no longer canon in the Warcraft setting. As we mentioned in this round-up of the Chronicle Volume 3 preview, if you search for Med’an’s name in the index, you are directed to page 404. It’s a reference to a 404 error when looking for a webpage that doesn’t exist.

    I liked Khadgar, so that would be nice. Although I would like to see Medivh instead. Where did he even go in Legion with his urgent business?

    Yeah yeah, I know.
    I messed it up.

    Just very curious about DK's role in SL .... and Vol'jin's play in it.
    Cheers

    I certainly hope not, tired of human mages ruling the roost, we have Jaina and Khadgar and they've got constant mage attention, I'd like to see a night elven and blood elven one rise to prominence, more of Rommath and Farondis when it comes to Global affairs, with Thalyssra and Umbric when it comes to local affairs.

    We've had enough human ones,a nd they're not supposed to be the most talented magical race, elves are. Why give night elves, blood/high elves, Void elves and Nightborne such incredible magical pedigree and fail to use them?
    • We have Rommath, Aethas and Voren'thal the seer ( or Archmage Lan'dalock for a high elf alternative)
    • We have Umbric and the majority of the core void elf group being arcane void users.
    • We have Thalyssra, Occuleth and Valtrois - Nightborne ancient magi from the elven empire of old remaining in Suramar, still around and modified by the Nightwell
    • We have Farondis, Mordant and Estulan - living genius-level mages from the kaldorei elven empire of old, still around (not the forest ones that gave up magic)


    See, lots of options, use them instead.

    I like Khadgar more than I like the current writers, so... best for him to stay away from the plot.

    Kadgar - Legion
    Magni - BfA
    Bolvar - SL
    There must always be a guy who give you the main quests, and then they expire.

    Technically he's not dead anymore, and he's also somewhere off in the Twisting Nether.

    I don't think new writers are aware of his close friendship with Turalyon and Alleria. BfA clearly showed us that they don't care about lore from old books.

    I wouldn't put too much stock in the Chronicle indices being canon. In Book 2, it lists "Jaina Proudmoore: See "Dreadlord.""
