"You don't share the taurens' unease over their future with the Horde or qualms about Garrosh's methods."Uh, I'd actually have to disagree with you on this. The trolls as a whole seem to be pretty well aware of Garrosh's incredibly low opinion of them, and his denigration of their efforts to aid the orcs' war efforts abroad ("What do you mean "our" victories?") was blatent as hell. Vol'jin himself has threatened to shoot Garrosh down when the time comes, and it's only Thrall's efforts to pacify him that have the guy waiting and watching..."for now."Even with Thrall's plea for unity, when Vol'jin went to war with the Zandalari, it wasn't just because of his Horde loyalties, but his hatred of the Gurubashi and the recognition that the Zandalari intended to wipe out or enslave the other races of the world, something Vol'jin (being a fairly decent guy, all considered) held no truck with. He undercut Garrosh pretty severely in the ensuing conflict, reaching out to both the high elves and the Alliance as a whole in his efforts to thwart the Zandalari without bothering to ask permission from his Warchief.What's most telling, look at the Horde military during the invasions of Vashj'ir and the Highlands - all orcs, straight up. The traditional blending of troll and orc into one seamless fighting force that's been the norm since vanilla is gone, or at least heavily played down. That's a pretty devastating blow to the symbolism of unity in the Horde.

Yeah, but Vol'jin isn't uneasy about the future with the Horde or have qualms with Garrosh's methods. Vol'jin has qualms with Garrosh being an idiot, but they now keep sufficient distance that they can do what each of them like. If Garrosh approaches Vol'jinn like he did Sylvanas, he will be dead. In the meantime, his methods are his own and don't really interfere nor rely upon the trolls, so Vol'jinn is cool with that until their home city is secure and the zandalari and whatever else is dealt with.Vol'jinn isn't uneasy about the future with the Horde either. He's laid back and either he'll make amends with Garrosh when the time is right, or Garrosh will finish with the trolls and cut them off and be killed for it. There isn't really unease. There are too many other things to do than worry about it.Vol'jinn takes things in the long run and doesn't rush. He's in a position where he can wait to see what should happen and will act then. Despise, hate, whatever all they want, there is no hurry to reconcile differences or worry about them.
