    He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.

    He is probably the most UN-interesting choice for the role.

    He will probably have the best interest of the Blood Elves in mind rather then the horde when making decisions as a War chief.

    Blood Elves aren't known for their deep respect of anything non-Blood Elf.

    if you paid attention to solo scenarios for the Isle you'd see that Lor'themar was able to agree to a cease fire with Jaina. He has true leadership skills despite the fact that he wanted vengeance. IMHO the gay belf jokes are old and get over it. When the burning Legion comes I would welcome the leadership of the Blood Elvs

    When the Tauren being cow jokes stop
    The Orcs being ugly jokes stop
    The Gnomes being short jokes stop
    The Draenei waggle jokes stop
    The Dwarf drunkard jokes stop

    Then the BE gay jokes will stop. Thats just how it works

    He and Sylvanas are easily the two eldest leaders of the Horde. Unsure which is older. Both served together in the Second War

    He presides over the Sunwell. The only power available to rival the current pressing threat of the Kirin Tor's possession of the Focusing Iris.

    Hasn't been very visible until MoP because of homeland problems. He has had to rebuild Silvermoon after the Scourge invasion in the Third War. He has also had to deal with the betrayal of Kael'thas and secure the Sunwell.

    Has a succession in place to run Silvermoon in case of his departure to sit in Org. Also would create an interesting dynamic between Rommath and Halduron as to who would be appointed Regent Lord.

    Is the one leader that may be able to earn an ounce of Sylv's respect and perhaps keep the Undead in check via coercion instead of the current Kor'kron militancy that keeps the Undead from being an interesting part of current events. Also creates an interesting plot point regarding Koltira.

    Is an extremely capable warrior in his own right. He was second only to Sylvanas when she was Ranger-General during the SECOND WAR indicating he has been good in a fight for a very long time.

    Of the current major players for Warchief is one of only 3 (arguably) with extensive experience in commanding troops. Sylv and Saurfang being the other two.



    Now all that being said I am of the opinion that the "rise" of Lor'themar as a candidate is only there to distract from Saurfang being appointed warchief. The reasoning I use behind Saurfang is that 1) He specifically told Garrosh that he would take care of him himself if he took the orcs towards a dark path; 2) Reluctant leaders make excellent story material; 3) The orcs v. humans mythos would be continued

    Thoughts?
    Perhaps the most dead on post in my opinion. I will only add that I will see Lor'themar toss aside his regent-lord status and become king of the blood elves.

    As an Alliance-Only-Player, I want to congratulate the Horde to their new "fashion-queen" warchief.
    If this goes live I will create a level 1 blonde bloodelf paladin with animestyle hair and troll the horde.

    Lorthermar WILL be the new war chief, you all can wait and see.

    he is the only horde leader that has a strong resemblance to Thrall when it comes to tactics.

    Example of Thrall's tactics aside from supporting peace yet letting the Warsong run wild?

    1. Yeah they were. Plus Forsaken were poisoning sleeping druids and working with the Grimtotem :/

    2. No I don't.

    What's wrong with poisoning sleeping druids ? Would you prefer forsaken to gently wake them up and then bash they skull with blunt object for "good morning" ?
    + it could be worse. They could put they hands in warm water. And we all know what would happen next.

    "Quel'Thalas has no king. Quel'Thalas needs no king."



    But, yeah. Lor'themar has made it very clear that he has no intention of making himself a monarch. I say let Quel'Thalas' line of kings die along with the Sunstrider Dynasty and instead reform the Convocation of Silvermoon and make Quel'Thalas a democratic centralist Meritocracy, with Lor'themar acting as head of the new council.

    It's stuff like that that makes me not support the idea of Lor'themar for Warchief. There's still too much work to be done in Silvermoon for Lor'themar to go bounding around governing the other races of the Horde too! >.<

    Blizzard really needs to squeeze in a nod to the basic campfire meme somewhere in or in the events surrounding the Siege of Orgimmar.

    Perhaps while the question of who the next Warchief will be is still in flux, there will be a little scene where two rebel soldiers are sitting around a campfire discussing the merits of the various candidates. At the end one of them shrugs and remarks that it really doesn't matter to him because even the campfire would be an improvement over Garrosh.
    Roleplaying, hardcore Raiding, running LFR on the occasional weekend, PvPing, rolling alts, achievement hunting, pet battling, or just enacting an endless series of whims, I don't care how you play WoW. Just as long as you have fun doing it.

    Strawman, that's not my argument at all.

    I'm saying that 'well we had to have conflict so having Thrall not reign in the Warsong can be excused!" is bunk because Blizz could write the conflict without having Thrall advocate peace and it would've been fine.

    I'm saying that if Thrall wanted peace it's not something he should have allowed, and it made little sense for Sylvanas to order it if she wants to take down the Scourge, weakening the Night elves is not conducive to that end.
