He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.
Yes we should kill Sylvanas. We should also kill Garrosh though.
And Baine. And Gallywix. That random cliché of a reckless hothead panda that went horde too. Oh and Vol'jin. And Lor'Themar.
Obviously being Alliance may have skewed my objectivity somewhat.
I must say, it would please me immensely to have both Garrosh and Sylvanas hit the dirt this expansion, but I find it likely Sylvanas is to be saved until something happens with Alleria and Turalyon.
I could maybe see it happening as part of the build up to the Siege of Orgrimmar raid with Garrosh completely losing it and murdering (or being behind the assassination) of Sylvanas. To get the Alliance in, one of the Alliance leaders would get to be assassinated too. \o/ I'm going for.... Velen.
A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.
Too often, we are mistaken for druidic types. perhaps that's true for some shaman, but do not let yourself be plagued by the ignorant belief that we are always peaceful.
Nothing about what I do is harmonious. I command the elements to my will. There is nothing offered in return. I would have it no other way.
Never assume an ogre's stupid, that's when they'll get you.
Why not both? They are pretty similar. Poor Garrosh is having the double standard applied to him.
"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy." -Alexander Tytler
It doesn't make sense to kill Sylvanas in this expansion, like at all. That would be just plain bad writing.
We know that Garry is end boss, so we have followed his path through all this expansion. It has been a nicely told story.
Using Sylvanas as fodder, just because you don't like her, is disrispectful to the character and the story it has been told with her. If she is going to bite the dust, it has to be in a way that brings her narrative to a close.
Fucking bias should not make you thing of crappy narratives.
It's not confirmed that we will KILL Garrosh, only that we will defeat him.
The Horde don't have a hero that they can relate to.
Thrall started off as this Koombayah character and hasn't had much evolution. He's a Mary Sue that happens to always do the right thing.
Varian started as two people - an arrogant douche and a mindless gladiator. They came together and tried to be noble and for brief moments (w/Saurafang) he was, but he was a warmonger. After this he tamed the beast and brought his inner strength under control - a trait that all true leaders should have (which Thrall started with).
With Garrosh, we have a clearly flawed character who at his heart wanted to do what was best for the Horde. However, his lack of wisdom and the pressure/stress of leading, coupled with dealing with the Alliance and the Twilight's Hammer became too much for him. It was simpler for him to swing an axe and be done with it and that was how he governed.
Now, we will see him deposed and what I'd like to see is him exiled. Without the pressure of leading, he can freely and unbiasedly reflect on his actions. As he wanders the world in exile, he will come across the ruination that he sowed and will understand the fault of his decisions.
Then, at one of the Horde's darkest hours, he will return, wiser and more steadfast in order to truly become the leader he was meant to be.
For someone who really hates the undead you should probably understand who gave the orders for that whole scenario. The undead were fine with just keeping Lordaeron... however Garrosh wanted more land. The undead were right there, so he sent them. Rather than getting her people into a spot of trouble with the group they were using to help protect themselves from those who would otherwise kill them simply because they were undead, Sylvanas complied.
