I still think you Alliance fellows got all the love in Wrath. Your questing experience in Northrend was just beautiful. I watched Arthas pull out Frostmourne and learned that Muradin was alive!! I reunited the Bronzebeard brothers in Storm Peaks and got to ride on a plane with Brann, fighting off Iron Dwarves. That was just spectacular. As Horde, we didn't experience any of this.. the leveling experience is a bit lackluster, specially Storm Peaks.. Ah well, and in the end? The Alliance saved the world. I only saw Tirion and Bolvar fighting over who would be the Lich King. Not even Sylvanas participated in the fight against her mortal enemy!! c'mon!! a few arrows or something! nothing :(.. only Tirion being frozen and then pwning Arthas. Now, you'll say "Tirion is neutral", sure, but he is still a human, which is painful for us. So I don't see any Horde up there, fighting over who would save the world. Saurfang could've been there, after the loss of his son, he could've taken the mantle of Lich King.. but no.. So in the end, the world was saved by a human. I, as a Blood Elf, owe my life to your greatest heroe ever, Bolvar Fordragon. That doesn't make me feel quite right. Anyway, the Cataclysm hits and suddenly the spotlight shifts back to us. We get the super cool quests this time around and Thrall is important for the first time in his life and suddenly everyone starts hating on him and calls him a Mary Sue and whatnot. I think this is only natural considering the previous x-pac. You got all the love before, now we get some attention, though we trade Thrall for Garrosh and he becomes neutral. People are even saying he gives the finishing blow to Deathwing, which is just stupid, considering he is just holding the Dragon Soul, infused with the power of the Aspects and just channels the energy, something only he can do because he is a shammy. Though I'm sure you'll feel just like I felt when I fought the Lich King and saw the cinematic. So people, please, this is just how storytelling goes. On MoP I'm sure you are getting all the love again, the whole Theramore incident will bring great consequences for the Horde and I'm sure you'll see lots of your faction leaders being very active, specially Jaina. I might even roll an Alliance toon to see all this. Varian will be important too and maybe even Tyrande will take revenge for Ashenvale and return to her old self, where she was simply badass and not Malfurion's useless wife. Please, have faith, I'm sure it's happening and you will all be happy. I don't see a Horde bias, maybe from Metzen, sure, because he is in love with Thrall, but to be fair, Thrall wasn't developed AT ALL until the Cataclysm. Let him get his Thrall fix, I'm sure next x-pac he won't be the focus anymore, since Garrosh is prolly going to be doing all the killing and we will all hate him together :D MoP will bring justice to both of us, we might even get equal epicness on both factions... let's wait and see!!
