This gets incredibly annoying...everyone suggests that Garrosh easily won that fight...and I kinda get it. I was there too, I watched the fight but if you look at the extended lore, for example the comic...they paint a VERY different picture of that fight. One where Garrosh is lucky that Thrall didn't snap his neck like a twig. Thrall even mentions to Jaina after the summit at Theramoore that he may have to kill Garrosh if this attitude continues. Just because he's Hellscreams brat doesn't mean he's some all powerful warrior.

This is a huge problem I have with extend sources of lore. If something is supposed to be such a huge part of the story for the GAME then it should appear in the GAME. Just like Varian's story should have been a continuation of the missing diplomat quest chain but is instead it is in a comic book. That fight could have huge implications for the future of the Horde and most people have no idea how it really went down.

@bob But an MMO doesn't really allow for big dramatic moments unless it's in a cinematic like the Wrathgate. The last dramatic moment for Varian or Garrosh was in the trailer for patch 3.1, of all places. I don't think name recognition is the only reason all expansion villains have been from previous games. Developing a new villain into a true threat in the confines of WoW would be almost impossible. I think it's fine that they give you the bare bones of the story in the game and flesh it out elsewhere.
