Jul 26th 2009 10:19AM Sorry but you're totally wrong there pal. Shattrath was a wreck of a city with a handful of the Aldor Priests squatting in it when the Naaru came along. It was certainly not a case of the Dreanei "giving up a city". Nor Dalaran, they declared independence from the Alliance, so nobody "gave up" anything.
And as the other guy said, the Orcs take in the majority of the entire Forsaken population during the Battle for Undercity events. This despite the fact a lot of Orcs don't trust the Forsaken as far as they could throw them.
Jul 26th 2009 10:13AM Disclaimner: I'm firmly a Horde player but I also very much enjoy the Alliance side of things as a fan of the books and the lore itself in general. (My first toon was actually Alliance, rank 11 back in the day \o/ )
I want to see Vol'jin and the Darkspears become far more active in the story. I mean look at Battle for the Undercity, Vol'jin just sits outside the damn place the entire time. ¬_¬ Same for Cairne Bloodhoof, I'd like to see him finally put an end to Magatha Grimtotem's schemes and plots. Preferbly with a swing of that peace pipe he carries...
I'd also love to see Shandris Feathermoon take a more active role in Alliance leadership, she was awesome in the Ancients Trilogy despite only being a fairly minor character. Maybe alongside that they can bring back her loverboy Jarod Shadowsong, who was one of *the* characters of the same trilogy. Though I see him more likely as a Neutral leader at some point, seeing as he's less xenophobic than the majority of Night Elves.
Flavor NPCs like Captain P making cameo returns would be great aswell.
Personally though, and I realise this is very unlikely due to game mechanics, here is where I'd love to see the Horde story go;
Garrosh and Thrall's differences finally come to a head and civil war amoungst the Orcs breaks out. Garrosh becoming the new Blackhand-type figure (the original, not his pathetic son Rend) and leading the Orcs that wish for conquest and superiority, while Thrall as ever strives for honor and equality. You'd have factions of all the Horde races splitting too. It's no secret that many Darkspears wish a return to their "old ways" of Dark Voodoo and Cannibalism/Humanoid Sacrifice. Grimtotem Tauren firmly disagree with the direction of Thralls Horde. Many Forsaken and Blood Elves would much rather wage bloody war on the Alliance (Humans especially due to their respective histories)
The problem with this is due to game mechanics as I said. It's almost certain Blizzard would never allow us to choose who to side with, and it would just end up being a cliche "hero kills villian" yet again.
I want to see more shades of Grey in Warcraft, and I want to get back to good old WAR itself. Horde VS Alliance.
If it's done over ship-to-ship in naval combat with the Maelstrom expansion, I'll be all the happier. 8)

Cenarius had it coming, to be frank, his arrogance towards the Orcs was unwarranted. "You're nothing but demon spawned wretches." or something to that effect, nice compassion there pal. The Elves need to wake up and realise he, nor they, ain't perfect.
The Trolls are only allied with the Horde out of honor, the Darkspear Tribe would've been wiped out if it weren't for the meeting of Thrall and the Orcs. Otherwise Troll Tribes are well known for their hate of other races, even other Troll tribes/races. Through their friendship and respect with the Orcs, the Trolls trust the Tauren but they have little time for the Forsaken or Blood Elves. Blizzard themselves say about the Darkspears "though they cling to their shadowy heritage, the Darkspears hold a place of Honor in the Horde." so suggesting Alliances between Elves/Trolls/Dreanei based on "nature" is foolish. The Trolls are not so much a "nature" worshipping race, they worship the spirit world. The Shamans believe in the Spirits of the Elements. The rest of them believe in the Spirits of their enemies, their ancestors and themselves. Quite a complex and complicated belief structure actually.

"Probably", look it up.
The majority (again, keyword) of these kiddies won't be Hunters (not level 70 ones anyway) no, that's not an especially bold assumption now is it?
May 29th 2008 5:47PM Oh yes please - flame me all you want for bashing one of your raiding "idols" (Yes, I lol at you people) but it doesn't change the fact I'm right. Any Hunter (read: probably non of you dipshits) worth their salt knows it and knows why. I'm happy for the scrub, but it's just a little disappointing seeing it go to someone with no idea how to play their class right.
May 29th 2008 5:46PM It's so cute, all these little asskissing children trying to defend someone they don't even know nor will ever know. He really doesn't care you do understand? (About any of this) I very much doubt he will even read WoW Insider.
Sadly some of you (Hi George!) can't read very well. It's all about making the (imba) Meta socket work George, now who's the one who need's to go back to Kara?
May 29th 2008 5:17PM Yes, of course you do. Children like you view the world in such a jaded light. *Pat*
God forbid someone can give critisism without it being based on envy. GOD NO!
