@Lemons: I leveled an Alliance to 80 recently--I've done the Wrathgate questline on both sides--I ran around the cities and did all the little random quests. Varian's personality rubbed me the wrong way. Like Garrosh, he jumps before looking, but I just can't stand his attitude. Don't get me wrong, I've wanted to punch Garrosh in the face MANY times doing the quests in Nagrand and in Northrend--Garrosh is as emo as they come. BUT...that being said, I'd rather have the emo orc than the yambag Human. Jania? Sure--I'd back her, but I just can't get behind Varian leading the Alliance. I can't really get behind Garrosh either--neither "tug" at the heartstrings, but Varian seems to continuously be clouded by rage--Garrosh is just an a'hole--no questions asked. I figure we're going to see a massive lore change/update before Catacylsm--Blizzard has to give reason for the Horde to support Garrosh--whether it's something he does in ICC or what--I don't know. But I think Blizzard realizes that 1/ Garrosh isn't liked, 2/ They'll need to do SOMETHING to make us at least, begrudgingly like him. I'm not going to be waiving my "Go Warchief!" flag for Garrosh like I do for Thrall, he hasn't proven himself to me yet.@Johan: Fan girl TYVM. It's not blind support--it's me having observed both personalities. Garrosh I can phase out without issue--Varian just makes me want to choke him anytime I have to do anything with his name associated with it.As Sgtrama mentioned, Anduin is like Thrall--both based on diplomacy. I support Thrall as my leader for the Horde, I liked Anduin when he was the "mini" ruler. Blizzard will REALLY have to sell Garrosh to me, and I won't be dashing to the throne room to protect his azz when the Alliance come to get their kill, but I still would take Garrosh over Varian. I can avoid his part of Org =)/Still willing to vote for Basic Campfire if it ever became an option...
