    Garrosh Hellscream Appreciation Thread

    Although I'm not the most ardent fan of Garrosh myself, the following article entitled How I learned to stop worrying and love the Warchief brought up some good points.

    Sure he's made his fair share of mistakes. He might be twisted, cruel, malicious, and downright delusional. But you know what? He's made for an interesting character. And shouldn't that be what we as players thirst for in the game?

    You could argue that his turn from emo crybaby in Nagrand to the baleful dictator he is today came a little abruptly (much in the same way you could argue that Anakin Skywalker's fall was too abrupt), but what better juxtaposition is there to the calm, sapient rule that Thrall enacted?

    How can you appreciate a guy who systematically destroyed the horde as it was, who killed one leader and tried to kill another, who spits in the faces of every non-orc out there, and even goes as far to say in the 5.4 trailer all other races are not part of his horde.

    If you appreciate him for being an asshole, thats fine, by all means do so, maybe theres people who likes assholes and so find that connection to garrosh, like twilight fans find a connection to soulless deadpans like bella. But people really need to stop deluding themselves that he's something he isn't.

    He has a few strokes of badass, and I liked him quite a lot in Cata. I appreciated the whole "fork in the road" thing they were going for with whether or not he'd turn out like daddy.

    Then things went downhill...

    I appreciate his upcoming ability to bleed his life out on the floor if that helps.
    We have felled demon commanders, cowed the master of death, conquered Old Gods, and stopped the Aspect of Death from destroying the very planet. Now, we need to kill this dude who managed to enslave pudding eating panda's, slobbering sauroks, and hilariously inept hozen. Awesome. Really epic.

    I appreciate him pre tides of war however after that he just went bat poop crazy and started killing everything in site, using old gods to gain power and slapping every ally he ever had >.<

    what would warchief garrosh do, made me like garrosh - starts at 1:12+ :P

    see above

    3. KILL. MAIM. BURN.
    WAR.HAMMER.REFERENCE.WOW.NOT.HAVE.ORKS

    4. He beat that goddamn sue anduin
    not he didn't, see alive anduin.
    5. He beat that goddamn moralfag taran zhu
    no he didn't see alive taran zhu
    6. He is bald
    real men grow hair

    7. Racial minorities for important political roles makes us look like nice and progressive people.
    yes, because all horde minorities want to kill him.

    8. He kills alliance.
    A cold virus kills alliance, and does a better job of it.
    9. He trash talk people.
    Showing he's uneducated and masks behind aggression to hide it.

    10. He IS NOT thrall.
    See first reply.

    11. He is real gangsta
    Gangsta sucks as a dynamic for the insecure kids out there.

    12. I like spikes
    you can go sit on one then.

    13. He isnt asslicker
    No he just cries for his daddy.

    14. Abuse of explosives
    So he wants to be a goblin then.

    15. SWAG
    So he's stealing themes from goblins.

    16. He is so badass that apparently whole azeroth needs to unite to oppose him.
    We're fighting him stealing an old god heart, he can't even kill anyone in fair combat without a cheat code.

    17. Garrosh is ballin.
    English is a nice language to learn.

    18. He talks about towers of skulls and rivers of blood meaning he is warhammer fan. So he cant be that bad.
    It means he's a warhammer drop out and should piss off back to his own backwards dimension, leaving the progressive orcs alone.

    19. He stole ancient artifact without even giving single fuck.
    Brann Bronzebeard does that as a job, and better at it.

    20. He tends to make sentient beings his bitches.
    He made a body part that can't react to him his bitch, nothing else has counted.

    21. He ordered assasination of vol'jin, meaning that he have common sense after all.
    and failed at it.

    22. Too lazy to keep writing
    must be a strain since he'll be dead soon.

    Gotta love the paaashun in that song!

    I quite like Garrosh, mainly because hes a bit of a dick - I quite enjoyed reading that article thanks for linking it! I see a lot of people on these forums getting very angry about anyone saying they like Garrosh which makes me a little sad, its mean to pick on people for liking things you don't

    Oh, *ahem*

    For the True Horde!

    Trassk umadbro ? You just can't handle garrosh swag. (also i can't believe you bothered to respond to that )

    You mean the true horde that doesn't include anyone but orcs?
    We have felled demon commanders, cowed the master of death, conquered Old Gods, and stopped the Aspect of Death from destroying the very planet. Now, we need to kill this dude who managed to enslave pudding eating panda's, slobbering sauroks, and hilariously inept hozen. Awesome. Really epic.

    Actually thats a nice point.

    I like because he's a punching bag and I get to rub it in his fans faces.

    Ah, happy face.

    Oh please, humans lack the punch. I mean they could put orcs in camps again (that would be hilarous) but lets face it, blizzard lacks balls to do that.

    I really hope that alliance will get something to compensate. One idea is to have night elves to plant that tree from harry potter that beat people shit up in middle of orgrimmar. It would be literally fist bumping (on citizens of org face).

    Hopefully he is solo able next xpac so I can come back as a shado-pan transmog'd pandaren monk and solo his face into the ground.
