I'm glad that Varian is at least getting some attention in this book, since he was given very little time at all in Cataclysm itself (and that was mostly just to get you to interact with Anduin). I don't think comparing the Horde to the Burning Legion is biased at all. In fact, I think the Horde is MORE evil now than when they were under the Blood curse. In the latter situation, they were more like wild animals, just lashing out at whatever was nearby.Now it seems like they are going out of their way to do evil things, like the Broken Front incident, turning humans to goo in Gilneas and Southsore, and the bombing of the druid school in Stonetalon.Here's hoping for this book (or even the next expansion) they'll take the kid gloves off the Alliance for some sweet retaliation :)

Southshore and Gilneas wasn't even the orcs. And the orcs ordered Sylvanas to stop using the Blight, but she's continued to use it secretly.The orc responsible Stonetalon also killed tauren, and was personally executed by Garrosh for his warcrimes.There's no doubt that the orcs were more evil when they were led by the likes of Gul'dan, slaughtering and pillaging and even completely destroying Stormwind.More importantly, something a lot of Alliance players seem to neglect is that the orcs desperately need resources, and the night elves abandonned the agreements that allowed the orcs to trade for lumber.Orgrimmar was pretty much completely burned in The Shattering. The orcs of durotar are suffering from drought and are actually *starving*. From Garrosh's point of view, he simply won't allow his people to suffer like that when there's ample resources to the north in Ashenvale and to the south in Dustwallow.

If Thrall and Garrosh wanted to trade with the night elves, perhaps they shouldn't have sanctioned a suicidal sneak attack on the Alliance forces fighting the Scourge at the Broken Front.And maybe they should have kept a better eye on the Forsaken.

If the orcs wanted peace, they'd have sat on Garrosh when he said "all Kalimdor belongs to the Horde". Go through Ashenvale and Stonetalon - either side - and you'll have characters telling you he's said that.No compromise with the enemy - Kalimdor belongs to the Kaldorei!
