    What black heart will Vol'jin pierce with his arrow?



    "Ya will spend ya reign glancin' over ya shoulda and fearin' tha shadows, for when tha time comes and ya blood be slowly drainin' out, ya will know exactly who fired da arrow dat pierced ya black heart."

    Vol'jin doesn't know it yet, but he's about to become a very great enemy to the Klaxxi.

    Calling it now. Thrall/Varian kills Garrosh. Vol'jin kills re-animated Heart of Y'Shaarj in final cinematic.
    ABOMS NORTH-LEFT!

    Ya ive thought the same thing may happen too, but the audio makes it seem as if the Varian part won't happen.

    Of course it won't. Blizz has made it abundantly clear that the Alliance cannot accomplish anything of significance in SoO. The only reason we get to come along at all is because Blizz can't have an entire raid be faction exclusive.

    Or it's because it's hard to give both factions the killing blow. Someone will always end up disappointed and I think you know that. Let's say Varian does finish him. Many will still be upset.

    Then that's Blizzard's fault for writing a story that could not provide a satisfying end to everyone involved.

    And there lies the problem, even if Varian kills him. I will give you my first born child that there is at least one Alliance player that will be unsatisfied.

    The odds are still good for Vol'jin. They've put a lot of emphasis on his leadership skills during the Darkspear Rebelion and he seems determined as he's ever been.

    No, it isn't. it's just stupid to think you can please everyone.

    They could try to please the Alliance for once, though.

    That's what happens when you have rival factions in a game/story. Blizz always defaults to its position of "lolAlliance" for in-game anything anyways, so its probably a Horde lore kill.

    You can thank the "high king" initiative for that.

    *points to books* it's mostly in there. They feel they've done enough; the game is for the Horde the books are for the Alliance

    Everytime we mention Siege of Orgrimmar it always becomes derailed into a "Blizzard hates Alliance" argument. Since when could toddlers in their brat stage even afford a $15 a month subscription.

    Perhaps, but that doesn't make it okay for them to focus on pleasing the Horde at the expense of the Alliance.

    I'm alliance, I'm pleased with SoO.

    Even switched to alliance in MoP and I really fail to see all this "herp derp hordz expanshun"...

    yeah he might become the new warchief and saurfang/gamon might become the new orgrimmar leaders.

    I don't get how you, as an Alliance player, have the game lessened in value because of the events of a storyline.

    Same raid.
    Same loot.
    Same suspense.
    Same sequence.
    Same game.

    Does it matter if your character's skin is green or not? It's the exact same thing Horde players are seeing, and even if there was an Alliance moment, who cares? Its a storyline, follow it. I'd rather see a good story fold out then Blizard randomly throw Alliance facetime into a story when it doesn't make sense.

    I'm an Alliance player by the way, Dwarf player to be more accurate.

    I'm pretty sure the most any lore character is going to get out of his death is a well-timed "this is why you suck" speech, or some gloatin' time.

    That said, I think you'll agree the horde should have this one for having to put up with him for the last 3 expansions. You had to deal with his stupid antics, I spent the last 6 years cleaning up after them. You think that mess at Warsong Hold in Borean Tundra sorted itself out? Have you ever had to sit and watch an idiot botch an aerial invasion to open up the portal to Twilight Highlands? Did you have to watch Garrosh be snotty to General Nazgrim any time you wanted to start MoP? Trust me man, we had to earn this one.

    Then I suppose you and I just have a fundamental disagreement on what constitutes a good story.

    I don't think it's good storytelling for the Alliance to show up and then leave without accomplishing anything. Since they've already stated Alliance will not be getting back any of the territories we've lost to the Horde because they don't feel like updating them, and that the Alliance will be leaving Orgrimmar and the Horde completely untouched because gameplay demands it, the only thing left we could conceivably accomplish is the killing blow on Garrosh.

    I am not interested in Thrall, Vol'jin or the Horde. And I should not have to be in order to enjoy 5.4's story.

    That idiot will propably trip over and pierce his own heart. That would be ironic.
    The common man is like a worm in the gut of a corpse, trapped inside a prison of cold flesh, helpless and uncaring, unaware even of the inevitability of its own doom.
