Aside from the "durrhurr sylvanas boobs" comments, shes a captivating character, shes depicted as cold, unforgiving, but an ever lasting turmoil embedded from the knowledge of her past life, way calmer, way subtle with her actions. more focus is placed on her background and character development
Garrosh on the other hand, replaced Thrall (back when he was beloved), instantly solidifying himself as the Scrappy Doo of WoW, any redeeming part of his character like in Stonetalon, was quickly negated by a stupid warmongering move, or his "ME EVIL ME TAKE OVER THE WORLD" attitude in MoP
I liked Sylvanas because she's one of the most interesting of the race leaders. I liked her back story and that cold-hearted calmness. I don't like where Blizzard taking her or what they did Garrosh. Garrosh had potential to be like his father, becoming a hero to the Horde, but Blizzard made him into a ass that I will enjoy killing XD Sylvanas may be going down that same route as well though. They just dumped Garrosh as the new warchief then have him seem like a jerk so we can kill him.
Well, if I was a braying retard like half the people in this thread, I might say something like "lol boobs!"
I think a large part of it has to do with how much of Sylvanas' characterisation happened pre-WoW. WC1-2-3 characters have been treated with more reverence than those that came after. Garrosh was never given the chance to be good, because he was mis-handled by inept writers. The only reason players are about to kill him is because Blizzard finally relented in their multiple-expansion campaign to try to tell players "No, you really do like Garrosh! You're just too stupid to realise it!"
Sylvanas is cool. I think part of her appeal for a lot of people is that others hate her so much. Personally, I like the kind of camp, villainous nature of all her appearances. She reminds me of a lot of characters I remember from when I was growing up, like the Wicked Witch of the West or Dick Dastardly.
Garrosh is just a reminder of what happens when you put a writer with even less literary panache than Knaak in charge of the development of a major character.
I like Sylvanas because she is distinctly NOT a lapdog. She has her own motivations, goals and desires separate from what the Warchief wants, causing interesting bits of friction and story to arise. My appreciation of this has only increased as Varian teaches the other Alliance faction leaders to roll over and fetch the paper.
In my opinion it is because Sylvanas' motives have been pretty clear from the get-go. She has never felt any true allegiance to the Horde, it is an alliance of convenience on both sides, and doesn't really harm anyone within the Horde. Garrosh's actions (until now) have been kept secret, and his intentions disrupt the rest of the Horde.
garrosh is horrible written, and well a simple brute; boring and unimaginative, not mention we are saturated with "bad cause he's corrupted" story arc, Sylvanas while not exactly be forefront for the story, is far more deep of a character and a general bad ass.
