    5.4 trailer: Why isn't Garrosh using Gorehowl?

    So we've all seen the 5.4 trailer, I assume. If not, why not?

    But as I re-watched it but mere moments ago, I noticed something.
    Garrosh isn't using Gorehowl.

    The axe he uses in this little machinematic is the Warsong Howling Axe, and not Gorehowl. As one can see, the blade of Gorehowl is noticeably larger, and there's them wee li'l spikes on the spine.

    So, was this a slip-up on Blizzard's part, or is there a reason for this weapon switcharoo?

    Probably Blizz messed up not paying attention to detail, otherwise idk.

    Gorehowl has some glowy part at the tip, maybe that made it messier to animate? IDK.

    this. its this obviously.

    However if you quiz blizzard on this, instead of admitting the mistake, will try to write it off and say ''uurmm... thats not gorehowl.. because garrosh already abandoned it before finding the heart and.... oh hey, you guys all get buffs next patch!!"

    Probably a slip up on blizzard's side !
    I come across a wild river, that wonders through the trees.
    I stare into its running waters and fall unto my knees.
    In resignation to the forest, that's held me for so long.
    I close my eyes and drift away into nature's evensong.

    Wrong axe was just an oversight. Similar models with similar filenames.
    Dave Kosak explained why. I think the Warsong Howling Axe was the "original" Gorehowl, and a later version - the one we know - was made afterwards. In the files, both are named Gorehowl.

    The Warsong Howling Axe is named Axe_2h_gorehowl_c_01
    The 'proper' Gorehowl is named Axe_2h_gorehowl_d_01

    He probably saves Gorehowl for 'special occasions,' like killing his fellow faction leaders.

    Patch 5.1 trailer was fucked up by Blizzard aswell with Catapults' wheels not turning around when they storm the beach. I mean wtf? It was so obvious, the wheels basically came up in your face

    He's not using it cause my plate wearers are using it to kill his people in droves.

    Goddamnit, Karadros.

    I thought he couldn't get disarmed with Gorehowl as well, or am I imagining that?

    Probably imagining it.

    OT: I noticed it as well, kinda irked me, but the models are similar.

    I mean, what are we to believe, that this is some sort of a...magic xylophone or something? Boy, I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder.

    Gorehowl's axe head is slightly bigger and there are spikes on the back of it. It's not Gorehowl in the trailer, though it's almost it.

    Perhaps its Edward Goreyhowl? After chopping up his enemies he'll use it to draw spooky cartoons.
