Zelaria on Reddit also published a list of Anduin’s jokes!

  • Greetings, friend.
  • A king is only as noble as the cause he serves.
  • Please, now is not the time for that. Also, it will never be the time for that.
  • The Light will abolish the Shadow in all its forms! I personally would never resort to its dark methods.
  • Except when playing Hearthstone. Sometimes that game brings out the worst in me.
  • A lot of people don’t realize how difficult and …awkward it is to grow up in the spotlight, your every success and every failure laid bare in front of the entire world…..of warcraft.
  • Mhh? Oh! Actually, I am still wearing the helmet, it’s just transmogrified to “hidden.”
  • You know those Shadow Priests are a bad influence. If one mind controlled you and asked you to jump off a bridge, would you do it? The answer is “yes,” by the way. Yuck!
  • Oh crud! I forgot to cast fortify on the group. Eh. I’m sure one of the other Priests on the battleground will get it.
  • When you really think about it, isn’t every race in the Alliance and Allied Race?
  • In Pandaren board games the goal is for both players to win. In Hearthstone the goal is for me to beat you to death. With your own minions.
  • There will be peace. One day. At least I think there will. How many WoW expansions are left again? ….Oh… ohh.. oh. Well. Well then.
  • Why did the Priesthood call it a Leap of Faith? No one leaps and it certainly doesn’t require faith. I’ve always thought “Lifegrip” would be more accurate.
  • A Paladin, a Medic, a DJ, the Archangel of Hope, and a Priest walk into a bar. The bartender stops them and says “Ey! No support groups!”
  • My father always said everything the Light touches is our kingdom. But not Deadwind Pass. We don’t go there.
