Oct 20th 2010 7:41AM The fact is, player characters make up an insignificant fraction of the Horde. The orcs are the most numerous race, and young trolls and tauren are being brought up as Horde. NPCs don't think the same way as players, and they don't have the same facts as we do. As far as they know, Garrosh is a great hero. Therefore, the Horde loves Garrosh.
Maybe his tactics were less than brilliant. No-one who never went to Northrend will ever know that. The fact is, Garrosh was put in charge of the Northrend offensive, and he won.

Meant to be a reply to a post several pages back...
Sep 22nd 2010 10:13AM This is the same Arthas that murdered his father and slaughtered most of the population of Lordaeron and Quel'Thalas, right? Not the Lich King, although he did it on the orders of the Lich King. The fact that he was holding back implies that there was some good in him (or of course that he was gathering strength), showing potential for redemption. But portraying him as completely good and pure, even before his corruption, would be misleading to say the least.
Sep 20th 2010 7:06AM It was Detheroc as I recall... but the point stands. It is telling that Garithos' last act was to order the banishment of the Forsaken from Lordaeron, an act that, while completely unfair and bigoted, considering Garithos' rank, the Forsaken could hardly deny his will without declaring war on the Alliance.
Not saying Sylvanas is a force for good, only that her act in killing Garithos was not necessarily evil.
Also note: it is likely that Garithos' men would not have just said "Oh well, our leader is dead, let's all just get along" had Sylvanas not chosen to attack them.
Apr 27th 2010 8:30AM Because they are trying to make it so everyone gets a shot at the endgame, not just hardcore raiders. Otherwise it's like "Join us in the fight against Deathwing, but unless you can put together a 40 man raid group who can co-ordinate perfectly, you probably will never even know what he looks like!"
The game is supposed to be fun for everyone, and the storyline is for everyone, not just those who can put their time an effort into hardcore raiding.
Apr 7th 2010 6:08AM also (why no edit button. it's been requested enough) remember, if you are blood and do not wish to become a tank come cata, talents are always reset after a big patch. Assuming, of course, that patch revamped the talent trees.
Apr 7th 2010 6:06AM I switched from frost to blood because I was giving up on tanking. This must be a sign that I am meant to be a tank!
But seriously, I would have thought they would make Frost the tanking tree, what with it being the tanking presence and all.
Mar 17th 2010 7:42AM "Except the Forsaken Death Knights. Those guys suck."
Only those who cannot control their lust for vengeance. Many of us (i.e. me and maybe one or two others 0.o) retain compassion and honour from our previous lives.
If you really want to see an evil death knight, go see Koltira Deathweaver. He's a blood elf, and he's seriously messed up.
Mar 16th 2010 10:45AM I would like to point out that my Forsaken Death Knight commonly does charity work, and would be shocked to discover any of her fellow Knights of the Ebon Blade committing such cruelty to such a poor, cute little animal.
Mar 11th 2010 11:42AM Heh, obviously you've never heard Lord Garithos talking. He makes the average blood elf look humble and amicable.
