    I believe people have been reading too much into it. I'd say it's a bunch of warped, odd demonic entities driven mad and/or further mutated by the presence of the Eye of Sargeras, not to mention his rotting avatar.

    just one thing. necromancy is a form of arcane magic not fel magic which is what warlocks use.

    as for why he was the strongest mortal warlock, i think it was because he was taught by kj one of the strongest beings in the universe. is he STILL the strongest? who knows but hes definitely still up there for tough guys in dressies

    It's been speculated that both fel and arcane can be used to fuel necromancy, evidenced by the Nathrezim necromancers during the War of the Ancients as well as Balnazzar's raising of the Headless Horseman (using his own demonic blood).

    In some ways, it seems to be a 'filthier' version of arcane, aye. It's different however in being much more volatile and having much more pronounced corrupting effects.

    dont nathrezim use arcane anyways? they were the ones that empowered the lich king and are sometimes called the creators of necromancy in lore

    It's hard to say, since we know barely anything about them. But using demon blood in a raising ritual, that does sound like fel got thrown into the mix.

    (Bottom line is, so far lore seems to point at both being viable options.)

    I just don't understand.
    First Gul'dan was exceptionally strong compared to the other warlock, it's the same as the Lich King he was the most powerfull death knight but he wasn't immortal; also Doomhammer wasn't a normal warrior he was well above the averange orc warrior.
    Second Gul'dan wasn't killed by "lesser demons" he was killed by demons powered up by Sargeras energy left in it's tomb after having rised the whole island from the bottom of the maelstorm and destroyed the powerfull seal casted by Aegwynn.
    How about we let the parenting of kids to... their parents? No, seriously, World of Warcraft is a videogame. Gaming it's supposed to be a fun activity (if you have that fun through challenges, social interactions, etc is completely up to you). Not some kind of "School of Hard Knocks about the Real World".

    "[Fel] energy, which most commonly manifests itself as ghastly, green-yellow flame, is arcane magic at its most corrupt, for it employs the blood of demons" While this is from the RPG and not cannon. It is somewhat corroborated by the game: "Doomguard says: ...before Sargeras freed us, we were the Titan's hounds. Forever enslaved to police the use of arcane magics."

    Arcane magic and fel/demons are closely tied.

    I linked the wrong part. "[Fel] energy, which most commonly manifests itself as ghastly, green-yellow flame, is arcane magic at its most corrupt, for it employs the blood of demons."

    Ok, if you need warcraft 2 unit names - grunts, troll berserkers, ogres, ogre magi, catapults, goblin sappers AND FRIGGING DRAGONS - afaik Zuluhed and Nekros would go against Gul'Dan. Zuluhed being the last horde shaman and Nekros being one of the few warlocks that weren't part of the shadow council and even rerolled back to warrior for a while, he was a warlock only for his clan's benefit, certainly not to serve Gul'Dan.

    The tomb is long gone sunken into the ocean ( Again ) It's in WC III TFT if you ever bother to look at it.

    Partly from the game (for example Gul'Dan's actions in Draenor/Outland are documented in quests all around Shadowmoon Valley, it's important to read the quest texts though...), partly from Warcraft 1-3 games, partly from books... but you can read most of it on http://www.wowpedia.org/. Some people are so interested in a games' lore that they spend more time reading about it than actually playing the game :-)

    Did it sink though? Didn't it more kinda just collapse?

    Warcraft 1-3, reading quests, reading the short stories posted by Blizz etc. Reading the in-game books. It all helps.

    Just because he wasn't Warchief doesn't mean he wasn't in control of The Horde, he and his shadow council ran the Horde under Blackhand and even after waking up from a coma with all his supporters dead he still was able to command no less than half of Doomhammer's standing forces. He didn't kill Doomhammer because of micro management. He had his own plans to fulfill and he couldn't get what he wanted and war with The Alliance at the same time. Gul'dan also thoroughly enjoyed killing Alliance anyway so having the orcs slaughter humans in their droves probably amused him and let them get on with it.

    As for his death I'm quite perplexed by it as well, I'm guessing Blizzard will kop out by saying he exhausted a great deal of magic raising the tomb rendering unable to defend himself adequately. But putting his death aside reading some of the shit he did and playing previous warcrafts you can easily see why he is regarded as the most powerful warlock to have ever existed, thoroughly deserving of the claim, he is after all he is the grandaddy of mortals practising dark magic.

    Uhm, all he truly controled at that point was his own tiny clan, The Stormreavers, and The Twilight's Hammer. Orgrim still had Dragonmaw, Blackrock, Bleeding Hollow, Black Tooth Grin and the Burning Blade just to name some. However, during the siege of Lordaeron Orgrim only brought most of the Blackrock and a lot of Black Tooth's with him. He'd left the Burning Blade at Blackrock Spire and Bleeding Hollow and Dragonmaw in Khaz Modan.
