    Yeah... Pretty wrecked... Understandable that Taran wants us out, so I imagine that lorewise the Horde will not be present in the Vale, but obviously we won't see that as it's unlikely they'll boot us from the "capital" of Pandaria and it's likely not being updated to reflect the booting, just like Outland and Northrend aren't up to date.

    Why is everyone so confused as to why Dezco is the go-to Horde guy for Taren Zhu? Did you all forget that the only two people that convinced Xuen to open the Vale (besides the PC of course) were Anduin and Dezco? Dezco is THE reason why the Horde has a place at the Shrine, the Pandaren were dealing with him far before Garrosh set foot on the continent. The Pandaren also highly respect Anduin and by extension Dezco's role in helping the refugees and have been thing them a lot longer; Garrosh and Varien are strangers in Pandaria while Anduin and Dezco are friends. Who else would Taren Zhu be talking to?

    Orcish Steps to Success:

    Step 1: Explode Planet
    Step 2: Kill Cenarius
    Step 3: Desecrate Sacred Vale
    Step 4: Kill our Liberator (Thrall)

    Looks legit to me.

    The guy who helped him beat the Thunder King, I think Lor'themar was his name for example ;P

    Maybe Dezco just happened to be at the Shrine when Taran showed up? I seriously doubt there was a roundtable meeting between all the racial leaders to decide who would get yelled at by a panda.
    And if there was, I'm SURE it'd be a scenario.

    Asymmetric warfare only really works if the stronger side has a face to lose and has to hold back. If both sides can go all out the smaller one will be vanquished. Take Afghanistan and the Russian invasion for example, the reason they lost were because they wanted the country AND people. Thus giving the ones opposing them a big mass of people to hide behind and to support them.
    If they had just killed everyone that wouldn't have been possible and any kind of effective sabotage and paramilitaric action would've come to an end soon.

    Even if the shadopan had the numbers to kick the horde out of the shrine the goblins would leave 'Presents' for the pandas all over the place

    This is what happens when you don't play on the horde side.

    First off, he did more than "give a quest" in krasarang, he's the main horde quest-giver there, and well over 3 questchains start and end with him. Secondly, he befriended anduin in Krasarang when they stumbled upon the temple of Chi-ji, also, he has been present elsewhere, he was there in Kun-lai along with anduin when they pleaded with the celestials to open the gates of the vale, and for the first 2 months, he was the highest-ranking horde officer in pandaria, and his sunwalker troops were the largest military horde presence in the entire continent. Yes, Nazgrim was a General, but most of the horde forces in the Jade Forest died, same goes for the alliance. After the battle at Jade's Serpent, there were only a handful of forces from Nazgrim's expeditionary force, as well as Taylor's so the Sentinels/Sunwalkers were the biggest presence of each faction on the continent.

    So he's been in Krasarang, Kun-lai, Vale of Eternal Blossoms, Vale of the Four Winds (him and his sunwalkers go and help defend that town that gets besieged by that giant Mantid Colossus) and now Island of Thunder. Yes, I'd say he earned the right to be the horde's main guy in pandaria.

    The pandas struggled against the Mantid with the might of the Mogu empire behind them, that's how there was enough power to build the wall and not get run over by the Mantid while doing so. Once the wall was in place, defending required a lot less man power and with the Mogu Empire gone, the Pandaren didn't require a large fighting force. So I wouldn't say that Shado Pan are very impressive, only in small skirmishes.

    Without the Mogu Empire the Pandaren would probably be dead by now, there would have been no wall and strangely, the Pandaren owe Lei Shen, the Thunder King, their existence. Thunder King's infrastructure 'projects' gave the Pandaren before and today a fighting chance.

    I have an unreasonable hate for the Hozen and really hope Garrosh finds an excuse to kill every last one of them before we run off to kill him.

    I don't think its so much that Dezco is being treated as the ambassador, more that Taran-Zhu was flying to confront the Horde at the Shrine and, hey, there's someone I recognize! So he weaves on down and hops off to talk to him. Good thing, too.

    In regards to his statement that he would have ordered the Shado-Pan to purge the shrine, I doubt the Horde would have received a warning first; it would have been a bloodbath as uncoordinated horde civilians, soldiers, and mercenaries suddenly started dying left and right. I have no doubt that, with such a surprise attack, the Shado-Pan could have purged the shrine.

    I also have no doubt that they would not have survived the fallout which would come afterwards.

    It would make for an interesting scenario, especially if Dezco gave you a quest to return with Taran Zhu's head (assuming he survived but his children did not).

    As it is, after Dalaran, I think I'd rather stay and kill the Shado Pan to the last rather than be kicked out of yet another city. I'm pretty damn tired of being punished for Garrosh's idiocy.

    Dezco seems to be the highest ranking member of the horde in the Shrine; also he was on the first horde party to reach Pandaria and get to know the natives without being affected by the other faction. He was the horde representative during the argument to let horde and alliance into the Vale, so it makes sense that Taran goes to Dezco to discuss this.

    I can't blame you for that.

    Something that was brought up in another thread- was Taran-Zhu giving Dezco and the Horde til the end of the season to get out of the Shrine? Or to kill Garrosh?

    That's the Horde for you. No respect for the other races and their land.
