    I think Anduin and Baine make a great couple, and as an avid fan of everything Tauren, they would certainly have my seal of approval. If Anduin thinks Pandaria is beautiful, he should try Mulgore!
    "If you look out of the window as a human being, at nature, all of nature is unconditionally and absolutely beautiful wherever it is. Whether it's a jungle. Whether it's a desert. Whether it's the Arctic wastes. Or even your own back garden. The only ugly things you will ever see when you look out of the window are things made by man." - Stephen Fry

    I'll say the Alliance has been a lighter shade of gray than the Horde over the course of the series, but they are not pure white. But yes, the war has to end. I'm glad you agree
    If there's one thing World of Warcraft players hate more than people who don't play, it's people that do play but not as much as them.

    imagine if i did hand over the prince to garrosh he could use him for leverage basically say we want ashevenvale and darkshore or your gonna get a pinky finger in the mail for the next few days

    Roleplaying as a evil bastard is so much fun
    Imagine if the response was genocide of the entire Orcish race? Evil will always be trumped by greater evil, you know.

    The two spent time together under Jaina's protection after Cairne was killed and during the Grimtotem coup. Anduin he became friends and the Prince encourged him that he could be the leader his people needed he even gave him the hammer FearBreaker.

    P.S. If anyone can restore Jaina's faith in the good of the Horde it is likely the High Chief for this very reason.

    One of the major issues I have with recent lore in wow, is despite how years before since WC3, the devs, metzen and gang, have worked to develop the orcs into something unique, into a race of noble savage warrior with a noble background that became corrupted, and now faught to regain that sense of good, even if they were rough round the edges.

    It is what drew me to the orcs and why they became my favored race, not because of what happened prior to WC3, but how they overcame that dark chapter in there history. That they were a race that while some saw as monsters, those who took the time to understand them saw they were not monsters but people trying to survive.

    What they are doing right now with the orcs under Garrosh is degenerative to the story, it doesn't move it forward rather it moves the story of the orcs backwards, where as all other races seem to be coming forward in there development (those with attention given to them).

    This is what pisses me off, that the once awesome race of orcs that I use to admire for being different to all other orcs in most fantasy genres, just ended up being like a cut and paste race of generic warmongering warhammer/lord of the rings savages, with only a few good orcs left in its current format.

    It isn't about playing an orc and wanting to 'crush mah enemies', thats generic and uninspired, what made them a great race was having them move beyond that way of thinking, and why I want to see it happen again.

    Or learn to read a spoilers section in a WoW fansite in a *10th of the time it takes to read said book.

    *Note a 10th isn't even close to the amount. If it takes you more time to bitch about the lore and think about a witty reply attacking the lore than it does to read a spoiler post, you have no right to bitch about said lore.

    I tip my hat off to thee, Trassk. =)

    Honestly, if people want to play the generic type of orcs, they should go play LOTRO or Warhammer.
    Thanks a bunch for the Signature, Cthulhu Ftagn.

    Write what you want, major events and story still only happen in the books - they failed to deliver these events throught scenarios yet.

    Sadly the war cannot last forever if they want to keep the story fresh. It will get as old and stale as the world being in constant peril with some "big bad" wanting to destroy it or take it over. PVP is by no mean a reason to keep a dead end story going either, and if Valen's vision from the book is any indication the war WILL end because they are going to join forces to face the Legion.

    I speak my mind, I don't sugar coat it and I don't read replies because most of the time it's someone who apparently "got their feelings hurt".

    Perhaps...The new PvP maps are about resource rivalry. Not war or territory as the old ones. No one is conquering Kotmongu, or the mines. They are draining the resources to their own people.

    The orcs will apparently rise again, at the end of this expansion when we kill Garrosh. THAT goal alone has me waiting on pins and needles for my chance to tear into the butcher of Theramore!

    And let the fanfics begin!...okay, that's kinda creepy, considering Anduin's 14-16, and Baine's in his...mid twenties? I dunno.

    Romeo was 18 and Juliet was 13, but yeah that fanfic would be a bit odd.

    Not really for the most part. The Alliance has probably spawned much of the evil in Azeroth by it's actions, not to mention how there are quite a few people who are just grey to begin with.
    5.1's best example is probably Vereesa and to a much lesser extent Jaina.

    The Alliance has always been the lighter of the two greys, but it's never been anything close to white. The problem is that the Horde currently on such a dark path that it's making the Alliance look even whiter.

    Depends where you draw the line between knight in shining armour and white knight.
