All I can say is, I'm glad I'm not the only one who has noticed that the Horde has gotten progressively more militaristic, brutish, & rash ever since Garrosh was introduced as Northrend expedition leader and later Warchief!Don't get me wrong, Varian Wrynn believes in war and orders the Alliance to fight the Horde too, but the Alliance really seems far more empathic, they really fight because they want to do the RIGHT thing. IMO it's hard to really feel SORRY for most of the Horde lorewise atm...Having said that, I think Garrosh Hellscream was intended to be as bellicose & domineering as possible to fit one of the major themes of Levels 80-85 that there is a growing rift between the two factions' military forces & characters such as Thrall & Malfurion who are more peaceable, but focused on pushing the fight towards the Twilight Cult, Ragnaros, etc. When you think of it that way, leveling as Horde is a LOT better.

Also Varian Wrynn is not incapable of giving honor to a fallen enemy. After Deathbringer Saurfang in ICC, he lets Saurfang the elder take his son's body away, saying 'I... I was not at the Wrathgate. But the soldiers who survived told me much of what happened. Your son fought with honor. He died a hero's death. He deserves a hero's burial.'Does anyone really think Garrosh would have done the same for an alliance soldier?
