@TerethalVarian's attempts at peace? Jaina has been the one trying to get Varian to come to some understanding with Thrall, but it's been Varian's xenophobic/racism attitude that ruined the one and only time. Now, to be fair to that jerk, Varian has not had the best of life... to a point where I think he is just plain insane from everything that has happened to him. But don't go justifying that jerk as the one trying to bring peace, when all he ever wanted was to erase the Orcs from the face of Azeroth, only now he wishes to wipe the Horde. If Jaina was the one running the Alliance, things might just be different, with perhaps Stormwind fighting alone the Horde.And I have to agree, the comic had a better interpretation of the fight. There was actually dialogue, the in-game event was a joke, to say the least. I am not saying Thrall whooped Garrosh, because in the end I think Garrosh would lose, but I am saying there was more to that fight than the developers did. Thrall was waging a fight on two fronts, physical which he was on par with Garrosh, and mental, where he was lecturing Garrosh the entire fight. BUT, this fight depends on your point of view. If anyone has seen TMNT, there is a fight that is exactly like Garrosh and Thrall fight, even ends more or less the same. During the fight Leo was lecturing Raph on his attitude, anger, impatience, all the things that Garrosh suffers, but in the end Raph over powered Leo and pinned him to the ground, much like Garrosh overpowers Thrall in game, but the thing is, Raph reflects on what happened and realized how weak and how stupid he was, he realized he did not win that fight with Leo, and proved everything Leo was lecturing him about. Even though he overpowered Leo, he lost. The significance of the comic is just that, it illustrates the fight between Garrosh and Thrall much better, because Thrall was lecturing the entire fight, trying to make Garrosh realize the errors of his ways. You may say Garrosh won, but in reality, and due to the laziness of the Devs for not making it in game like this, Thrall proves in front of the Horde why Garrosh is unfit and his ways wrong. But, before Garrosh has time to reflect, the attack on Ogrimmar occurs.Garrosh can be a great leader, and Thrall knows this. Garrosh is strong, passionate and loyal to his people to a fault, which is an admirable quality. But he needs patience, compassion and humility if he wants to become as great as a leader as Thrall and Cairne. And if Thrall leaves teh Horde before Garrosh can acquire these traits of a great leader, I don't see the Horde fairing any better than the Alliance with Varian. When those two kindred spirits collide, all hell will break lose. Because that is what they are, Varian and Garrosh are soul mates.
