Of course, people are going to vote for Godfrey AGAIN, despite the fact that he is completely undeserving of his popularity (and now that I've played through both the Worgen starting zone, all of the Silverpine quests and Shadowfang Keep on both level 20 normal and 85 heroic, I can say this with complete certainty), but let's ignore that for a moment and look at the current match-up.Arcurion's got a hefty advantage here. He can immobilize Godfrey with Chains of Frost, keeping the Gilnean out of melee range and rendering him unable to dodge the ice boulders thrown by Arcurion's minions. This distance is, of course, no issue for Arcurion, who can just spam Hand of Frost all day. And in the event that Godfrey does somehow manage to get his health low, Arcurion can simply start channeling Torrent of Frost and (frost)burn Godfrey down with ease.Game, set, match. Begone with you, Godfrey.

A hefty advantage? lolololol, ur funny. Ok, I know we're not supposed to focus on mechanics that heavily, but lets face it, at least some pugs had a chance of wiping on Godfrey. Nobody wipes on Arcurion. Nobody, not even on the day 4.3 dropped.Here's how the fight REALLY goes. So he immobilizes Godfrey with Chains of Ice, fine. Godfrey can just respond by casting Cursed Bullets and following up with Pistol Barage. Rinse, repeat. True, he can't dodge the ice boulders, but Thrall will be protecting him anyway, so they won't matter. Now lets assume Arcurion is spamming away with Hand of Frost, Godfrey is immobilized with Chains of Frost, and Thrall has just been trapped in his Icy Tomb so he can't protect Godfrey from the boulders. Godfrey has three options: Keep firing at Arcurion, turn his bullets on Thrall's ice, or, and this is my favorite, summon his ghouls to break Thrall out and keep hitting Arcurion with his bullets.Undeserved or not, Godfrey is gonna win this on both popularity AND mechanics.

Do note that Arcurion can dodge Pistol Barrage. Cursed Bullets hits hard, but Hand of Frost hits pretty hard too. And not only would the Ghouls be locked down by Chains too, but even if they were free, they're very easily killed and aren't a huge threat.But hey, we both know this is a popularity contest and that logic barely factors into it.
