Smart argument.I'm sure just about everyone would like to see Tirion and Garrosh taken down a few notches. :)

Yeah, there have been times I've wanted to punch Garrosh in the throat. There are a few other Northrend Horde leaders (in Dragonblight and Grizzly Hills, in particular) who could also do with a sound thumping. And as for Alliance... Don't get me started on your human king.

To be quite honest, the only character I'd really love to be taken down a notch, is Varian Wrynn.Or killed. Brutally. And let someone sensible take over the Alliance, such as Magni.On second thoughts, It would be even better if he were to become infested by the spirit of Ner'zhul after we kill Arthas, so I could personally slay him and spit on his corpse, and get phat loot for doing it.Damn, i hate that man.

I want Varian and Garrosh dead ASAP!How about they fight and both die?The Alliance has so many good candidates for faction leader... why do they have to stand such a douchebag.

Because Eternauta, they are only human.The rest of us are gnomes, dwarfs, night elves, draenei, orcs, trolls, undead, tauren, and blood elves. Big difference.

Why does every faction leader need to be a shining bastion of goodness and decency? Varian Wrynn is a HUMAN king, and humans have shown throughout history that they are far from perfect. Varian is a flawed King who does what he does because he truly believes in his heart that the Horde is an abomination that cannot be trusted and needs to be wiped off the face of the planet, or else it'll be the humans who will suffer for it. All the Horde assaults on he and his family throughout his upbringing only solidify that. Spin it however the hell you want - blame rogue factions of the Forsaken, the demon crazy horde, not the current horde and whatever else all you want. The concrete fact remains that IN VARIAN'S EYES, every time there has been some human tragedy, it has been at the hands of a race currently protected by the Horde. He is doing what he feels necessary to protect his people - which should be his first responsibility as faction leader - even if it borders on blind racism. If Orcs murdered my father before my eyes, burned down my home, kidnapped me, etc., I can't say I'd feel any different than he does. Anybody else who says differently is lying.

@ All Varian HatersI personally think that Varian is probably the best leader the Alliance can have. Unlike the other candidates, Varian is the only one so far that I've seen, get off his his arse and do something.One of you recommended Magni. Magni, really? What has he done except prove he's unable to control his angst ridden daughter so she ran away? Throw whatever lore you have at me to disprove what I said but that's basically what happened. And btw, no, I'm not a horde hater. I just think that after years of the Alliance's inaction, aside from sending troops to one place to another whenever a threat appears, would finally be stirred by a king who only wishes to see all potential threats to his kingdom be destroyed.

And Jaina doesn't count because when she does something, and it goes wrong, she says "Oops, I'm outta here." And teleports.

How the hell is Varian a good leader? We're engaged in a life-or-death struggle across 2 continents and another planet. So our wise leader, upon returning, decides to invade Northrend. /clap?

"How the hell is Varian a good leader? We're engaged in a life-or-death struggle across 2 continents and another planet.

If a lot of you would learn a bit about lore, there would be a lot less dispute.. Human's are flawed, yes, yes they are, that doesn't mean elves and dwarves are perfect but they sure as hell can see the big picture better than Varian can. As a KID Varian saw his own father be assasainated by a (half-)orc, one he trusted. Then as he grew up he was forced through gladatorial combat against orcs and with orcs alike. His "masters?" Orcs. Being a human you should figure out why he might have a bit of a grudge. He is clouded, don't just say you want him dead. Understand why he's like that.

@Overwelm That reminds me a bit of Thrall's upbringing.. if you read the books. And Thrall is far more of a thoughtful and decent person then Varian.
