    I actually like both names.

    If WoW was real, I'd probably would prefer Go'el since Thrall means slave, so yeah, I think I'm going with Go'el.

    Thrall no doubt about it. What hapened to him in Cata was abomination.

    Doomhammer armor -toting, Aggraless Warchief Thrall. His incompetence was recently realized to me, but I still prefer him over the rag-toting World-Shaman Go'el.

    I prefer 'Medium Rare'.

    Thrall because Go'el sounds stupid. He has intentionally taken the name of Thrall to spite the Alliance. He wants to make them feel guilty for all they have done to him. Someone who was meant to be their weapon now is their biggest enemy.

    So yes, Thrall if you ask me.

    This pretty much sums it up for me. I can't stand that name or that voice after doing those quests for the 365-cloak on all my alts back in cata.

    I actually like the couple between Goél and Aggra.
    PM me for my Friend Code, Battletag, ETC...

    I don't know about anyone else, but even knowing what "Thrall" means and the reason why it was given to him, I don't consciously associate him with that meaning when I refer to him. I just see it as his name. Plus, 'Go'el' is...dorky. It's dweeby.

    He'll always be Thrall among everyone except Aggra.

    But if he were to pull off something that would cause Garrosh to tremble in the might of Go'el's shamanistic power, then fuck Thrall

    Thrall when we was at all his glory. I try to forget the whole Go'el thing ever happened

    Thrall has much more meaning and back story behind it anyways: a name he was given in mockery, but which he embraces and continues to use as a reminder of his past. Go'el is just something Metzen and Co. made up for Cata.
    Back in TBC, you do a quest chain, and it is there that you learn that Thrall's birth name is Go'el.

    I prefer Thrall, because thats what I called him for long time. Warchief Thrall.
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    Thrall sounds cooler, but the name change is actually important. He knew he's birth name since BC, but it wasn't until he passed on the mantle of warchief to Garrosh that he reclaimed it. With this Go'el admits that being warchief, cool and all, wasn't his destiny; that he is a shaman first and foremost. Now, one can say that he turned his back to the horde, but you can't deny that the defense of the world itself is a higher calling.

    Thrall, all day everyday. Still praying for someone in the Horde to remind of who he is and Aggra to be killed. Would quite like to see Garrosh cut off her head. The shit storm would be quite something and old Thrall would be back... Not as Warchief though, his time has been and gone.

    Wow... you just blew my mind sir...
    Never considered they would use something like that, then again they do use a lot of obscure things like 7! Even though its coincidence lol.

    Apparently he becomes the darkspears racial leader so to speak in 5.1, i wouldn't say he turned his back on the horde he worked so hard to create. He did have a higher calling, and now its to dethrone Garrosh for trying to kill Vol'Jin dammit!

    OT: I like Thrall, i still call him Thrall, but he is Go'el. I guess I'm not too bothered, however if his character (/Metzen) wants to be called Go'el then fair enough.

    The beginning of wisdom is the statement 'I do not know.' The person who cannot make that statement is one who will never learn anything. And I have prided myself on my ability to learn

    Thrall's balls could've beaten up Chuck Norris in the WoW commercial.
