Good, now I know I want to play a goblin AND a worgen.Still, my ties to the Horde could fade completely if we really get Garrosh as leader.

I'm kind of shocked at how many Horde -- even diehard Horde -- players I'm running into who want nothing more to do with the Horde if Garrosh takes the reins.Actually, not that shocked. Pretty seriously considering rerolling if that's the case myself. :(

If Garrosh kills Cairne, as was posted on MMO-Champion, I will weep. And probably reroll as well.

Do not worry my friends. I think when Garrosh kills Cairne(*sniff*), Saurfang's gonna cleave his head in (I hope!)
I'm not that shocked that Horde players would re-roll. Thrall is such a big part of the Horde, he took them to success. I'm an Alliance player, but I've always considered leveling my little Tauren druid some because Thrall makes me respect the Horde. But it Garrosh takes over... No thanks.

@Allison: I'm feeling that way myself, and I'm as diehard as they come (nothing so zealous as the converted). I always wanted to be Horde and was forced to be Alliance to play with my then-BF, and I swore nothing would ever make me go back to the blue side.Garrosh taking the reins would do it. :(

I won't re-roll entirely, because I like the Horde races. But if what MMO-Champion posted happens and Garrosh becomes leader and/or kills Cairne I'll be really disappointed at Blizzard.Still, I'm an Alliance man myself (even though I prefer Horde lore/ways) My main is Alliance and I'll be trying out the Worgen before the Goblin.

I play both Horde and Alliance. In terms of "belonging" though, it's definitely for the Horde (or, as they say, FOR THE HORDE). But Thrall is a huge part of that. There's a difference between being savage beasts whose blood-thirst is tempered with pride, and even nobility, and just bein' angry, like Garrosh and Varian are.I can only assume Blizzard understands this, but who knows what they might do.

You rolled the Horde because you wanted to be a bloodthirsty semi-bad guy, why leave now when they're just starting to get actual bloodthirsty and semi-bad? You wanted to be bad, but not too bad? Garrosh's direction sure beats the Mary Sueism of the Horde under Thrall. For once the Horde actually has some flaws that are less than admirable.

@RogueJedi86I'm sure that in your 23 years of life you've come to understand the difference between being "bad" and being unsuited for leadership. People don't mind Garrosh because he's "bad." We mind him primarily because he's dumb (see Garrosh/Saurfang exchange) and a poor leader (see him pouting in Outland).

@RogueJedi86:"Lok'tar ogar! Victory or death - it is these words that bind me to the Horde. For they are the most sacred and fundamental of truths to any warrior of the Horde.I give my flesh and blood freely to the Warchief. I am the instrument of my Warchief's desire. I am a weapon of my Warchief's command."Not all of us are 12 yo Billy Badasses. A lot of us rolled Horde because we believed in the ideals of strength, honor, and looking out for your brother/sister in arms. A great deal of us rolled Horde out of respect and admiration of not just Thrall, but Saurfang, and Cairne. Yes, even we Belves. I can only speak for myself but there is no way in hell I could be a weapon of Garrosh frelling Hellscream's command.

I can't reroll alliance, durotar >>> dun morogh for dueling.But man Thrall was the reason I originally decided to play horde, Thrall represents everything I love about the horde.And I hate Garrosh. Its not that I don't like him I completely hate him.First he was all down and sad then he's reckless and aggressive, this guy is a complete victim of his emotions.He's a fool kid.Hey Thrall my man you are the only warcheif I will ever salute.

Hadn't really thought about it, but if Garrosh kills Cairne as is the rumor, and Grumblecakes' assumption is right about Saurfang kicking his *** in, that could cause some serious discomfort and rumblings through out the horde ranks.Could it lead to a third faction forming?

@ Bludstorm if Garrosh does kill Cairne.. Then i sure as hell do hope Saurfang lops Garrosh's head off. :3 And put's it on a steak so people remember not to try to consume Tauren, as they are not steak. They are a holy beef now.
