No good or evil. Just shades of gray and liars.

If you don't understand how good and evil are childish terms and only bound by the perspective of the viewer, no one can help you.
I would say the Old Gods are the only pure evil beings.
Even Sargaras and KJ use to be protectors of the titans until they were corrupted by the maddening whispers.
"If the people who are trying to destroy this world aren't taking a day off, then why should I?"
Hate em all you want but in his bloody wake was new trade routes, unified military and creating a kingdom out of cities that had long given up relations with one another. Still, all views are short-sighted and this one favors turning a mass murderer into a leader. We can flip the lens around the timeline all day and favor our bias for any argument.
You really think life is so black and white, eh?
what exactly is evil?
The old gods are merely organisms that are trying to reproduce in their environment, does that make them evil?
Everyone who dares to oppose holy mary sues of azeroth, is tainted with evil and deserve no mercy. Only slow painfull death.
So yeah people who dont like thrall, anduin, baine and rest of these morons are pure evil.
Destruction is merely an effect. Destruction is necessary for there to be growth, change, and renewal.
Chaos is the same. Chaos is not good or evil, Chaos is merely the innability to predict a result. chaos is randomness, in therein lies the freedom of our free will. Without chaos we are merely automatons in a determinstic clockwork universe.
order and chaos are merely effects. Chaos is necessary for there to be freedom.
For anything to be good or evil, there must be something that acts as the supreme source of moral truths. Azeroth has no such source, and evil and good becomes a point of view. No characters are truly evil and none are truly good. It's all depending on the point of view. In the old gods view we are evil for siding with the Titans who locked them away from a place that was theirs, in our view the Old Gods are evil because they thrive in chaos and detruction. In the Titans view we are evil because we are corrupted forms of their perfect creations, in our view the Titans are evil because they want to kill us all. Each major faction is good in their own eyes and evil in their enemies eyes.
Why would the playable characters (or for that matter why would humans in RL) have the supreme authority on moral truths? The real reason some believe this is that is that they are those characters and people. I suggest everyone read up on how morals work, it's not as simple as "this is bad and this is good".
Pretty sure the legion is pure evil... all they want to do is destroy worlds.

I work a lot, fuck my life.
Poor old gods..it would be incredibly funny if we end up siding with the old gods against the titans :PThe Old Gods are chaotic for certain, but actually how evil they are is debatable. After all Azeroth was their world. The Titans were the invaders who just shown up and decided to completely reorganize the planet in their image, and tried to kill or at least imprison the original inhabitants/owners.
Now..murder is a mixed bag - because people justify it all the time. The state executing people? That is murder, disguised in a law. A country going to war and killing civilians, that is murder disguised as politics. And by the abortion threads on this forum, some consider that murder. The lighter side? Dexter is sure as hell a murderer...and we still root for him. And for Walter White...

That troll who introduced murlocks to the ecosystem in Zangarmarsh. No contest really.
State executions for crimes against others are not evil, they are justice. If x murders y, then by the law of that land (if implemented, and without doubt) then he shall die for his crimes. And just because our society has decided to root for murders (in TV or the past) doesn't necessarily make it right.
