Siege of Orgrimmar - Garrosh Defeat: Horde Cinematic
Spoilers ahead! This version is very similar to the Alliance version, but shows the conversation that was taking place across the room that you can't hear in the Alliance version. Congratulations to Apophasis for getting the 4th kill, the second Horde kill, and being the first to stream the Horde cinematic!

    So, a Horde hero goes neutral, and then returns Horde? Why can't an Alliance hero do that? And don't even say "Derp, Malfurion", as he was NEVER Alliance. He was asleep, and woke up neutral. I don't even think he attacks any Horde.

    Still, good cinematic. And Vol'jin as warchief I like. Also liked the Alliance cinematic. One thing that kinda bothers me. Why did Garrosh calmy follow Taran Zhu? Would have made sense for him to struggle, since he was all about orc superiority.

    About the Orc racial leader: I am surprised noone has mentioned Zaela yet. She would be by far the most interesting choice to lead the Orcs. This might sound strange, but listen. She was loyal to Garrosh and fought for him in the Siege. This should make it certain that Vol'jin will keep her in Orgrimmar either as a prisoner initially or just to make sure she doesn't do anything bad. But Zaela is what keeps the Dragonmaw Orcs under the Horde banner, and Vol'jin simply cannot afford to remove Zaela if he doesn't want to lose the Dragonmaw. Furthermore, Zaela would also be an acceptable choice for most other Orcs because she is a fierce, strong warrior.

    And having Zaela as leader of the Orcs also creates plenty of potential for future tensions, conflicts between her and Vol'jin. And that by itself should be reason enough to make her Orc leader.
    And on a side note, it would add another female leader to the bunch.

    I am very much happy with this result. The alliance and the horde worked together to stop Garrosh, I wonder where we've seen something like this before?

    It's only fitting for Garrosh to be put on trial. It's only natural for Go'el to not want them to take him away in chains and keep him in a cage, that was what started the horde in the first place. Orc slaves of alliance. And obviously this peace won't last long, since it appears that Sylvanas has other ideas. Whether they come into action or not, will be seen in the future. Even though these cinematics weren't in the best form like their MoP cinematic, I like the charm that comes with the in game models.

    I don't think that's the reason why it will change, the peace won't last because after the cinematic you can talk with Varian and he tell you that they have to find a way to take out the plague to retake Gilneas and contain Sylvanas..., that WILL create a new conflict between the horde and the alliance

    All I know is, quest continuity is going to be a huge nightmare for anyone leveling a new character. Unless Blizzard phases Garosh--->Vol'jin as you progress. For example, does the Horde questline in Stonetalon Mountains involving Garosh still exist after this? I know we've had this before with Outland/Northrend etc. But those were self contained on another continent. This is going to involve the main Horde capital city and a prominent quest hub/characters

    Garrosh is the one who sends Horde characters to MoP to wipe out the Alliance Forthrallsake. You can't have Vol'jin do that

    As a troll main, I'm ecstatic to see Vol'jin as the new warchief. I wanted him to take over after Thrall departed in Cataclysm, not the brain-dead Garrosh. Vol'jin represents what the Horde was about under the leadership of Thrall and should return it to its roots.

    I'm also incredibly happy to see the Alliance becoming more badass. Though I now main Horde, I've always had a respect for the Alliance and it always kind of irked me that they played second-banana for so long. I love Jaina seeking to destroy the Horde immediately, and I love that "we will end you" line from Varian. Definitely makes me feel like the next expansion or so will have that awesome tension but not full out war between the two that we felt during BC and Wrath and then hopefully another major explosion between the two after a few more expansions.

    I must also add that it was nice to actually see Gallywix in the Horde cinematic. I mean seriously..where the heck has he been since the opening cinematic of Cataclysm? It's nice to know he still exists.....

    Because they were terrible. Thrall acting completely out of character (suddenly he's judge, jury, and executioner, all so the Pandaren can come in and act all Thrall like). Then there was the dialogue that was apparently written by an 11 year old who thought he was being epic and awesome, but really wasn't. Not even remotely. Except to an 11 year old.

    The only thing that remained a constant was Varian -- the original Thrall 2.0 -- being a useless douchebag full of hot air. But that's to be expected, especially with the 11 year old writing staff.

    Can we please kill Varian already? I'm tired of his cocky "We will end yuuuu.." crap.

    So what's next in WoW? This was the final boss right, and they haven't announced a new expansion?
