"So now Garrosh is pefectly poised to repeat his father's mistakes, because they've been changed into virtues in his eyes."All you really need to know right here. Blizzard loves to take a character and make them crazy/corrupt them. Had he gotten even slightly nuanced guidance about his father's life, instead of a one sided pep talk he might have turned out alright.As is, I wouldn't give it two expansions before Garrosh is on the wrong end of a raid.

/agreeBlizzard's lore writers are definitely on the darker side of things. They love corruption. For example: The most well-done cinematic sequence in WoW so far in my opinion is the intro to WotLK. But what is it? It's a glorifying of Arthas's corruption and twisting his GOOD father's words. And you leave the video thinking, "That was AWESOME." But it is not awesome. It's actually horrible. Very rarely do they have the opposite happen.Having Garrosh as the Horde leader and Varian as the Alliance leader is only fitting for Blizzard. It makes sense considering what they usually want to do, and it make sense for their profit from WoW. What better way to have WAR continue in WARcraft than to have those two WARmongers lead both factions?

I could see Garrosh turning to the Legion for help to defeat Deathwing, then getting beat down by Thrall, the new Guardian.
