Uther was also a heroic paladin who only did what he thought right and was generally the most righteous human this side of Lothar, his questionable actions regarding Tirion aside. Granted, yes, he probably should have done something about Stratholme, but what COULD he do? Fight Arthas' troops using only the (significantly fewer) ones who refused to go along with their prince? About all he could do in that situation is try to get outside assistance to stop Arthas, which is quite likely exactly what he did. He just didn't make it in time, and never really had a chance at doing so.As for Grom...yes, Grom was too bloodthirsty and did some foolish things. Ultimately, however, he recognized this and made amends, sacrificing his life to kill Mannoroth and end the Orcish blood curse for the foreseeable future. I've said it before, but Grom was what Garrosh COULD be - a badass who recognizes his mistakes when they're shown to him and isn't beyond accepting he's wrong. Unfortunately, Garrosh doesn't seem to be maturing very quickly. Maybe with time.

You don't understand. Our toons should only be honoring fallen heroes that were absolutely perfect in every way.Since nobody really qualifies under these standards - being less than gods and all - they really shouldn't be honoring anybody. Right? :P

Garrosh is proof of the Peter Principle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Principle) - people are promoted to the level of their incompetence.

@EccentricaNot really. Grom was the leader of the "Warsong" Clan. He pretty much exemplified everything they stood for. I mean really, diplomacy and...well, thinking in general...were *never* considered valuable attributes amongst them.

Er....dammit, you said Garrosh. Sorry. :X

@EccentricaI believe you're thinking of Michael Scott
