The best part about characters like Garrosh is when their fatal flaw kills them, which turns a comedy into a tragedy in classic literature terms.We hated Garrosh. He was a wimp, then a rude bastard. It's hard to like someone who changes like that simply because someone told him his father wasn't a bad guy. Because of it, we see he has one huge, huge character flaw: his pride. Throughout his development, no matter what he's doing, his pride is what drives him. Whether he's declining help from humans or arguing with Cairne, his pride is there pushing him.Now we love Garrosh, because that same pride that made him spiteful and hurt now make him a better warchief than Thrall was, simply because his pride now extends over his people, making him assume his race, deserves more than what Thrall settled for. After all, it's the best race ever that his father saved from eternal servitude.And it's probably this pride, that will ultimately kill him. It's been mentioned somewhat in other articles he will probably be backed into a corner, which is very viable considering how he is. His pride won't let him admit he's wrong, or that his people are weak.So to me, if he dies, I'll mourn the passing of a well-developed character, but I won't think it's unjustified. Not saying he has to die, but it'll feel flat if he just submits to whatever powers show him he's wrong.

Saying Garrosh is a better Warchief than Thrall is like saying George Bush (the younger) is a better president than George Washington.

Such a good point, from a classical literature standpoint, he should die. Nobody ever really deserves to die in a Greek tragedy, but that, or everyone you love dieing while you go mad and gouge your eyes out and go into exile, are the wages of pride.
