    Also, just to add in Baine could be a good contender, he also cares about the Horde, dont know if to the extend as Voljin, but I think that with a good advisor Baine could do a lot to the Horde, now that his father didnt have that chance.
    I think Baine was an option for Warchief, but he was way too young and he still needed time to learn, but it have been a while since he became the leader of the Taurens... so is not imposible

    Modernization.
    The Horde is full of all races, not just orcs. Have an orc leader & a Warchief.

    I think the age thing isn't really an excuse, because if isn't too old its too young. I belive when Thrall took the mantle he wasn't all that old either if im not mistaken. And like a said, a good Advisor would go a long way, for example Thrall and Saurfang work together pefectly, Baine would work perfectly with Vol'jin or Thrall.

    Vol'jin is just Thrall in troll form.

    Saurfang is too old.

    Sylvanas would send the rest of the Horde to their death and raise them as Forsaken.

    Thrall, is Thrall...

    Lor'themar Theron doesn't even want to be the leader of the Blood Elves as I recall, doubt he would want to become the Warchief for any other reason but to secure the safety of his people. I would still prefer him over any of the others though.

    Rexxar is really not an option as he belongs in the wilderness, not in the civilization, and especially not as the Warchief of one.

    In the end I'm afraid Blizzard is probably going with the utterly boring and obvious Vol'jin.

    The Horde isn't just about the Orcs anymore, so many more races have joined since then. Considering Garrosh and his "true Horde", I'm not sure the rest of the Horde will trust another Orc so easily.

    Thrall was in his 30s..., also it could have been the case for Baine in the past, but i think now he's old enought, he became the leader of the Taurens in his 20s..., also remenber that Trall had been raised and trained to command an army to be a leader, Baine wasn't

    Vol'jin is awesome but I don't know about being the Warchief. He was portrayed to be really weak in the scenarios. We will have to see though.

    Well i don't think Sylvanas would do that, but she won't be Warchief... why? Cause the forsakens aren't trusted by the Horde...

    Also is true what you said about Lorthemar, but remenber that Lorthemar thought the option of becoming the Warchief himself, so i think is not imposible

    Remenber he's more of an assasin, he's not someone to have a face to face combat, even more if he's not prepared for it

    Varian can't have actual input if it's expected that the new Warchief will be viewed as anything other than his creature.

    I don't really dislike Vo'ljin, it's just that whenever I look at him I see Thrall, they are just that similar in ideologies, ideas etc. And we have already had Thrall as Warchief for so long, so having another version of him would be just as boring as having Thrall back.

    Taking the past history into account, specifically the War of the Shifting Sands where he commanded the combined forces against the Qiraji, and the assault on Icecrown Citadel - where he interacts with Varian, mind you - Saurfang makes a very possible candidate.
    Why would Varian have any say in who the Horde's Warchief would be?

    Is kind of true, that's why Vol'jin likes Tralls so much, but if you see, Vol'jin is still a little more agressive than Thrall... (See Thrall trying to talk with Garrosh)

    True, Vol'jin does like to speak his mind more openly. But I do feel it would be a lot more interesting and fresh to have for example Lor'themar Theron as Warchief. He's proven himself a rather good warrior and great leader (something I thought I would never say about him, as I barely knew who he was before MoP). I'm also certain Vol'jin wouldn't mind him as Warchief either, nor would the rest of the Horde. Heck, even Sylvanas should be happy with that since she holds the Blood Elves rather close to heart.

    Its not about beeing boring, its about not having another phsycopath or 2 face Warchief again.

    And Vol'jin is the only candidate who isn't in the risk zone of being a psychopath?

    As much as I would hate it, I do think it would be appropriate if Org was left a total ruin after all the smoke clears. The Horde capital city would then move to the Faction leaders home. That would make Baine or Vol'jin choices that might work if for no other reason then to keep the Horde capital on the same continent.

    Or....we could claim Chen as our beer drinking warchief.
