In the new 5.1 patch notes, the last bullet in the "General" information section struck me as odd.
"Players who are truly dedicated to their faction can spend their commissions on an item that will give their fellows an extra reputation group quest for the day. Horde players can speak with Ongrom Black Tooth, while Alliance players can contact Proveditor Grantley for details."
Obviously you can't say it's real or not, only assume, but is the Horde letting in all the old orc clans now?
What does this have to do with the NPC you ask? His surname is Black Tooth, which might mean that he's from the infamous Black Tooth Grin clan, which is an elite sect of orcs, originally part of the Blackrock clan, who derived from the Blackrock to start a new clan, which was led by Rend and Maim Blackhand. Members of the clan had to knock their own teeth out to show loyalty to the clan. The Black Tooth Grin clan was the major ruling clan during the Second War, leading the full might of the Horde behind them during the second charge on Azeroth, since the clan leaders, Rend and Maim, were also the tentative dual "Warchiefs" commanded by Nerzhul, before Orgrim took up the throne.
As we read in Tides of War, that Garrosh has started to accept other orc clans into the Horde as long as they pledge full loyalty, as seen with the Blackrock orc Malkorok, who was made the personal bodyguard of Garrosh and who was confirmed to be added in 5.1 (yay! ).
What do you guys think? Should the Horde accept the older corrupted clans now as long as they rid themselves of their old mindset and pledge themselves to the Horde, as Malkorok did? I personally am totally for more diversity in a faction. I'm big on having lots of NPCs in places like Orgrimmar and seeing more then just regular orcs, trolls, tauren, etc, such as the Stonemaul ogres joining the Horde, as well as the old Mag'har, the Dragonmaw, etc.
