""Who are you to countermand my orders?" Garrosh demanded, nudging his war wolf forward. The enormous orc now pressed his great girth into her space, coming up alongside her and glowering at her.
Sylvanas did not move or shy away. "I was once like you, Garrosh," she answered, her voice quiet and steady, loud enough only for the warchief to hear. "Those who served me were tools. Arrows in my quiver." She reached up and slowly brought down her hood, then directed her dark gaze at him. Her eyes were alive, their oversized jet-black pupils livid with rage, red embers glowing deep within.
At that moment, nobody dared look Sylvanas Windrunner in the eye. Nobody but Garrosh Hellscream.
What he saw was a great black void, an infinite darkness. There was fear in those eyes, but also something else. Something that terrified even the great warchief. His wolf began to edge away instinctively.
"Garrosh Hellscream. I've walked the realms of the dead. I have seen the infinite dark. Nothing you say. Or do. Could possibly frighten me."
The army of undead that surrounded and protected the Dark Lady was still hers, body and soul. But they were no longer arrows in her quiver, not anymore. They were a bulwark against the infinite. They were to be used wisely, and no fool orc would squander them while she still walked the world of the living.
The warchief sheathed his axe onto his back, his mount sidling away from hers. After a long moment, he finally tore his gaze from those eyes.
"Very well, Dark Lady," he conceded loud enough for all to hear. "We will take Gilneas… your way."
He spurred his mount onward and ambled through the mud toward his own troops. But I will be watching you, he told himself.
The eyes of Hellscream are upon you more than any other."
I refuse to vote in that biased poll since I do not find Sylvanus as scum, and no, she shouldn't die.
when all else fails, read the STICKIES.
Technically Vol'jin could be consider just as much a insubordinate. I mean, Garrosh did try to kill him outright. We haven't see him take that hard of a stance with Sylvanas. I'm not 100% for sure that Sylvanas isn't already on to the fact that Garrosh is a bit out of his mind. So far, I can see why she has flippant attitude towards him.
But overall, we need the contrast I guess. You see the Alliance really coming together under Varian has he learns how to lead like a real king and you see a faction crumble under it's own chaos when the leader goes down the bat shit crazy path.
"The land would make a decent spot for a new Undercity in its place. "
They get ressurected into UNDEATH and then get the choice, join the Forsaken or die once again.
In the end of the Horde version he speaks about that the weak cannot control the Sha but he WILL master it.
"Sylvanas realized that her people were no longer simply arrows in her quiver, but an important resource that would not be squandered."
Which great sees his own people as "resource"?
The Vision made it clear to her that she has to stop Garrosh from using the Forsaken as fodder because she can't get replcement quickly.
And now stealing this quote from checking facts:
"They were a bulwark against the infinite. They were to be used wisely, and no fool orc would squander them while she still walked the world of the living."

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.
It would be terrific to see both dead. Would make my day.
I've played both, back and forth, for the last 7 years, and both sides have "good" and "evil" within them. You want to RP as a champion of good and righteousness? You don't have to play Alliance to do so. Look at characters like Vol'jin, Thrall, Baine, and Saurfang. You want to be devious and evil? Horde isn't your sole choice: Grand Marshal Garithos, Maiev Shadowsong, Captain Doren and even Jaina Proudmoore at one point was on the verge of slaughtering an entire civilization, children and innocents, included, if she wasn't talked down at the last moment by Kalecgos.
TL;DR: War is all about two factions who believe they are right and the other is evil clashing. Both sides commit horrible atrocities, feeling vindicated because "they are right." I don't believe America is evil, but dropping nuclear weapons on Japan cities was the darkest, most evil moment in our history. Stop wasting time/energy applying "Black/White" philosophy on this game. Horde lore has become a lot more "evil-filled" lately because they're led by Garrosh, who is evil. If you actually played Horde, you would know that Horde heroes have spent a lot of time aiding Baine, Lorthemar, and Voljin against the evil Garrosh is plotting. Hell, my Tauren DK saved Prince Anduin's life. Judge less, enjoy playing more. ^_^

What a horrible poll. I love her character and wish she would take over the horde.
The only two leaders making progress in the war against the Alliance. HOW DARE THEY? BURN THEM ON A STAKE!
heres an idea, how about we kill varian wrynn? sniveling little whiny emo king I much preferred bolvar as the alliance leader even as a horde player at least he had some `balls` about him, not to mention the fact that varian has sent countless alliance troops in harms way and sacrificed many more simply to track down his own son, hardly thinking of the big picture there was he?
The guys a joke, completly boring and needs to be killed off fast, I vote Sylvanas! KILLS varian :P
