I'm probably just showing my bias here, but I'm really think that the conversations at the beginning between the faction leaders and Tirion are very revealing. We see Garrosh reveling in the last fight he instigated with Varian and basically saying that he wishes he could kill at least Varian, if not just humans and the other alliance races completely. Varian, on the other hand, seems more concerned with the safety of his people, by not completely putting his trust in the Argent Dawn to handle the Horde, like he did with the Kirin Tor during the Ulduar opening trailer. And we all saw how that went, with Garrosh running in and attacking him.So anyway, it seems that while Garrosh wants to just go crazy and kill the Scourge and the Alliance and probably pretty much anyone else, Varian is more contained, wanting to handle the Scourge first, and then worry about the Horde separately, rather than starting a second major conflict in the middle of the campaign in Northrend. At least, that's what I got out of this.

Not biased at all. The conversation of Varian supports how he is shown in lore and the comic, which is a good guy. Despite what the blind Horde fanboys try to depict.

I'm a huge Horde fangirl, and I'm glad to see Varian being given a chance to come off as a good leader. It's Garrosh that's the utterly hopeless case, and he has been ever since we first met him in Outland. Varian's too hot tempered and tends to see his hardline approach to the Horde as the only thing standing between the Alliance and a mob of slavering monsters, but Thrall's doing the Horde a disservice too by allowing Garrosh to speak up so often that Varian's justified in seeing Garrosh as the "face" of the Horde.I do think Varian honestly cares about his people, and he's looking like the better man here, which I think is indicative of Garrosh not being long for this world. Varian's learning and is able to see the big picture, while Garrosh isn't. There's hope for a reconciliation between Varian and Thrall, who actually have quite a bit in common--but not while Garrosh has any power in the Horde whatsoever.
