Kidnapping children for the Tuskar. I love the the Tuskar and I really hope that their motives are good but stealing kids from their partents and shoving them in sacks just seems wrong. I enjoy killing allaince so that can't be evil.

Yeah, I ran across the puppy-stealing quest right after the Stolen Generations had been in the news a bunch, the Aboriginal children who were forcefully taken away from their parents and brought up "white." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stolen_Generation I did it with my first toon but have avoided it with the others. I loved taking my wolvar orphan out there to play with one of those puppies later.On a different note, as a child of the 90s and the Save the Whales era, I hated killing orcas in Borean Tundra. The game has pretty much made me insensitive to killing all sorts of sentient creatures, but nothing prepared me for killing whales!

And you know that they're just eating the pups anyway. I know because it takes forever to harvest those crabs in dragonblight because there aren't enough traps. I mean really who taught those guys how to harvest crabs? hey, here's an idea let's just wait for an adventurer to come by and pay him to get the crabs.

^ThisOf all the things I've had to do in the game, this was the one thing I really disliked. Torturing the guy in Borean, for me, wasn't bad because you don't see him suffer. Had there been some graphic with the torture I probably would have that seared into my brain but it felt like the myriad of other times we've had to go beat someone up to get information; what's his name in Menethil as an example. But this, stealing children by killing their caregivers, made me quite upset. I did it the first time and I have never, ever done it since. If I fly in there to go fishing at the lake to the northwest of Moa'ki, I avoid killing the wolvar. I wasn't expecting to be that emotionally involved in a quest. I guess it's the whole stealing children aspect of the quest that really bothers me.

@Moorit: "On a different note, as a child of the 90s and the Save the Whales era, I hated killing orcas in Borean Tundra."I have to look away when my toon is killing giant turtles and gorillas.

The Kalu'ak are preparing to go in and raise the Tuskarrs' village (aka... kill them all off), so in a way, the 10 you kidnap are going to be the only survivors... they're meant to repopulate the species. It's a last-ditch effort to save a few before the genocide. Which, makes me feel better about what I'm doing.

The children's week quest only makes it worse. You take a wolvar pup around buying him ice cream and showing him the world and the entire time I am simply thinking 'ya and I am the one who killed your parents!' It was the only time children's week got to me, and I am *not* looking forward to it this year.But dammit, that wolvar pup is getting all the ice cream I can give him. It's got to be bad where he ended up though, he freaking crammed himself into a mail box to get away from them.
