I think I understand crazy lady now...Sylvanas is clearly still batshit insane and has some of the same issues of playing with fire that she's always had. I have no doubt that she DOES genuinely care about her own Forsaken, however rough around the edges she might be. Since the Lich King died, her drive is now on finding a home for her people and keeping it. When I first read the dialogue between her and Garrosh and having no voices to hear I thought she might be turning into a sarcastic back-hander, but listening to her here makes me think maybe her interest isn't in overthrowing the Horde or killing the living.She loves/loved her homeland more than anything else. Having it ripped in two like it was is what defined all of her actions in the future. Her people have just regained their homes and are, in a sense, rebuilding it. The Alliance refuses to acknowledge their hold. Her deepest fear is that once again The Forsaken will have to watch their nation sacked, destroyed, and taken from them, which is why she feels she NEEDS the reinforcements. To her, nothing would be worse than the ones loyal to her losing their homes when she could have done something about it.She's not a goody goody, but I've become convinced that her actions are not necessarily intended to annihilate everyone. Just those who don't recognize the Forsaken's sovereignty, or indeed even their free will.

Then explain the plague which had to make sure that "not even their bones would be left"? O.O

@NielsdeJONG Would you fight someone with your arms tied behind your back, because your mom said so?The Plague is the best weapon the Forsaken have, and frankly they are the least populated race in the Horde. So why waste few precious soldiers and warriors fighting by Garrosh's terms when a simple plague barrel would do the job faster, more thoroughly, and with little to no loss of life on the Forsaken side.

There is no place for honor or fairness in war, imo. Both in the real world and the virtual battlefields. And the forsaken were never idealists in the first place.
