this current story should go more into depth on the meaning of the horde, having characters actually realizing what the horde is, what it means to stand up for something you know to be right, instead of falling into a clique of 'honor and duty' above common sense.
All i know if that for weeks I put up my list of bosses in SOO and people told me no Nazgrim and Warlord Zaela would not side with garrosh and that I was crazy to think they would be in any way bosses.
Well suck it.
I hope I get to bury my sword in his brain.
Call me optimistic, but there's still a chance he won't die. The dungeon journal straight up telling us that he's a dead man makes me wonder.
Whilst I hate to bring it up in any form of comparison, see the German General Staff in World War 2. Even when it was painfully obvious that they had lost, that absolutely everything was going down the pan and their leader was a drag addled lunatic control freak, for the most part, they did nothing, standing by their oaths of loyalty to Hitler and Germany even as it burned around them. Even right up to the very end a great many stayed loyal out of a sense of duty and honour winning out over common sense. This has happened again and again throughout history.this current story should go more into depth on the meaning of the horde, having characters actually realizing what the horde is, what it means to stand up for something you know to be right, instead of falling into a clique of 'honor and duty' above common sense.
Like you Trassk i'm really bumbed out that we will be fighting Nazgrim, he's been with us a long time and I honestly thought he was a good candidate for Warchief of the Horde. But then again we don't know if we kill him, there could be some mechanic in game or something when he's defeated and Thrall/co talk some sense into him, i'd like to think we do, I would love him being defeated, not killed, but we will have to see eh?
I have a question as someone who is woefully lacking in Horde lore knowledge:
who is Zaela?

These days I feel like i'm the only one who actually gives a shit when good guys die in warcraft, so don't lecture be on empathy about characters.
People really liked her and did not like the idea that she would fight one tyrant to join another but it seems she did and is now lending the aid of her protodrakes to Garrosh's army.
I knew it when I saw him while scouting for the Alliance a few days ago.
His devotion to the Horde was always going to be his downfall. He's going to be the tragic boss in SoO, because he is only following orders.

The undead will kill the rest :P
Not all Horde agree with the idea of dying for your Warchief no matter what, obviously, but to loyalists of Garrosh, following your Warchief as though he's some sort of deity of battle is paramount.
