It explains exactly why it would "weaken" the world. Long story short:
"Talk, talk, talk... Always you speak, never do you listen! You ignore the lessons of Pandaria. You see, there is balance in all things. Wisdom etched in our very fur: black and white; darkness and light.
When the last emperor hid our land from the rest of the world, he also preserved the homeland of our ancient enemy: the Mantid. Why did he do this? He did so to keep the land whole. Living with the Mantid for 10,000 years has made us both strong! So it is with your Alliance and your Horde. They are not strong despite one another, they are strong because of one another! You mistake your greatest strength for weakness.
Do you see this?"
Feel free to watch it all, but the point starts at 8:47.
not a single one.
garrosh wouldve never won, a splinter timeline where events happen perfectly in garroshes favor is not a likely outcome, it was just one of many.
Of course you are forgetting if it wasn't for us and the rebellion...The Bell would still be his, He'd probably have the Thunder King's power and of course all the Mogu stuff would be under horde control too.
and even then wrathion didnt want one side to decimate the other, wrathion wanted to end the war with the smallest amount of casualties as quickly as possible, his plan still worked, he just assumed that afterwards whichever side won would force the other side to join them.

the horde character was the one who GAVE HIM the bell. the alliance are the ones who broke it.
Can someone please shed some light on how he got the paragons on his side I can't find info on that
Because they value the old god Y'Shaarj above everything else, they explain it when you get exalted.
I know this might be asking for much but I sort of skipped this expansion and I want to get ready for the next. I was wondering is there a place to get caught up on the lore of this expansion? I don't really know what happened. Did it set anything up for the next expansion?
The Paragons didn't just join because of Y'Shaarj. Their Empress was working with Y'Shaarj also through the Sha of Fear. Apparently though, they don't ally themselves with the those corrupted by the Sha or Y'Shaarj. Only those powerful enough to be beyond its influence, like themselves or Garrosh.
That said, had Garrosh had the whole Mantid Swarm at his side he probably would have won.
I dont think he really had Thok on his side. I think Thok was more like a fighting dog. Something caged up and taunted until enemies approached in which case youd set it free and get to high ground. Thok seemed fairly indifferent when he ate the troop of korkron orcs right before you put him down.
Retired from WoW.
A unified Garrosh horde being stronger than the alliance does not = Garrosh horde stronger than Alliance + Horde.
If you have a giant bad ass tank, and you have another not quite as bad ass tank but still pretty bad ass. What do you think is stronger? Both tanks together, or the giant bad ass tank alone because it destroyed the other tank?
It's as simple as this.
Garrosh Horde vs Burning legion
(because he killed the alliance)
Horde + Alliance vs Burning legion
Totally, and combine all of that with the fact that Garrosh is a tactical genius, there was a time in ashenvale when he predicted almost every single move the Alliance would make in retaliation with the help of the knowledge of who was there at the time and the stories he had heard of them, only failing because of Varian. If he hadn't been stopped at that time it most likely would've been gameover for everyone since the sheer force of that army and his tactical brilliance.
Garrosh could've crushed the Alliance and then the Legion would show up and kill Garrosh and his True Horde and take over Azeroth. All because the Alliance was defeated and thus no Velen or Anduin alive to help form the Army of the Light to defeat the Legion.
Win or lose the war, Garrosh's efforts were completely pointless.
"If the people who are trying to destroy this world aren't taking a day off, then why should I?"
The only thing that'd take down Garrosh in the end would be the Legion or an overdose of Old God corruption, whichever would come first.
