Blood elf are the most popular race among the Horde,
I don't have a problem with that
His greatest accomplishment is tapping a keg during Brewfest. And yet he is so freaking popular. I just don't get it. If I would have to choose the lesser evil (with the question of "which among current leaders of the Horde will be the Warchief") I would pick anarchy I guess. Vol'Jin, interesting only because he nearly got assassinated? Baine the Quilboar Lover? Sylvanas who would rather kill the reminder of the Horde and raise them as slaves? The belf guy? Hell, the non-existant Gallywix the Asshole would be a better pick.
Vol'jin needs to fortify the echo isles. He should worry about the trolls and recrut the zandalari after the thunder king is dead. Lorthamar us too close to varian and he allows sylvanas to manipulate him. Sylvanas won't get warchief due to her genocide of the gilneas people. Baine will most likely get it since thrall wanted to give it to cairne but didn't since he's not orc. Thrall could realize that was a mistake. Baine is the best canidate. He's reasonable and diplomatic he reaches out for peace but he will kill you if you bring harm his way.
Nowc look at it this way. Lets say we lose org at the end of the xpac. Silvermoon is not going to be defended although it's easy to defend since there are 2 ways in and you cannot fly also on par with UC they're too close to stormwind. The isles are isolated but an attack on vol'jin would be easy since allies could attack from anywhere. Best spot for a warchief if org is destroyed is the bluffs far from SW, easily able to be defended from allies and its in the md of kalimdor.
Bigger question is who will be leader of orcs. Saurfang, eitrigg, rexxar, or med'an?
As much as I love Blood Elves I have to say, it is a bit weird for Lor'themar Theron to be Warchief. It also doesn't seem like a good move because they hardly even touched Theron since BC so he was just standing in Silvermoon doing nothing for like 4 years. At this point they might as well make Voljin the new Warchief if Thrall or Saurfang won't be, since at least he's been part of the MoP story actually doing something.

For your health.
Sounds like a red herring to me TBH.
always said to be a ranger is not a politician, but for the life sircunstancias touched her political role.
is a good character who deeply loves his people and would give his life for them, a patriot.
Next Warchief will be Garosh?
i bet last part of story will be raid vs (insert name) Old God who manipulated Garosh to do what his haters wanted, Thrall Cleanse Garosh and he makes final blow on Old God.
Lor'themar is a former member of the alliance and has better relations with the alliance than some alliance kingdoms. Its far more likely that Lor'themar betrays the horde and helps the alliance start the siege of orgrimmar.
I don't think there will be a position of warchief by the end the expansion. The alliance doesn't want it because of the "war" aspect. The horde doesn't want it because a single "chief" can make decisions that undermine the independence of member kingdoms.
Why would you think that he would make the horde "Fabulous" If you have read the lore blood elfs can be very ruthless.
i still fail to see why the Orcs would accept him to be their leader, just as the warchief is the "High king" of the horde he is also the racial leader of the Orcs themselves. why would they pay any heed to some nancy boy they have probably never heard of? chances are if he does become WC it takes 10 mins for other Orcs to step in and try to knock him off the throne. probably less. Orcs at least in this generation under Garry are very proud of their heritage and therefore are more then a lil racist, they wont accept ANYONE other than a fellow Orc to lead them.
