The whole "The Curse of Flesh/Fate of the Watchers" was kinda lack luster on the Horde side to be honest. Listening to the text in Halls of Stone is really the Horde's first real "in" to that whole thing. It's not really played upon much at all really in their quests. Yes you fight the iron dwarves a lot. And the Vrykul. But why the vykrul are following Arthas is not really touched. I guess the Taunka were supposed to be the balancing act to the Iron dwarves, a kinda "Origin of the Tauren" thing. But I was surprised that the Tauren and the Taunka seem kinda indifferent to each other. I thought a common type heritage would have played a lot more like the Orcs in Nagrand with Thrall, but it doesn't come close to that. It ended up with the Taunka just being a Northrend race with similar architecture and mannerisms to the Tauren. Not really much more then that. I mentioned in the comments of the "Mount Hyjal" preview that it seemed very weighted to alliance concerns. (Which is fine, because its Mount Hyjal, a Night Elf lore hot spot) It was from my questing experiences in Wotlk and the rather bland (Compared to alliance quests) lore connections the Horde had in this xpac. I hope thats not the case in Cata.

I was waiting for someone on the Horde side to point this out. I mean after all, Horde come from a different planet where there are no "Old Gods" out to corrupt and create chaos. But the Horde are flesh just the same as everyone else. So how do you resolve that Curse of Flesh concept thingy with Azeroth and Draenor now?I'm sorry if I'm a nit-picker. But these little things drive me mad sometimes......
