    Garrisons - for the horcde, I guess... -_-

    When they said garrisons would be faction specific, and their themes would be largely elwynn and durotar, I still had some hope. I hoped that they'd try to make things a bit more "neutral", in a way that a night elf or a draenei character wouldn't feel out of place in an alliance garrison, and an undead or a blood elf wouldn't feel out of place in a horde garrison.

    in a way, the alliance buildings were a pleasant surprise. here, we can see that while the building draws mostly from human resources, you can feel a bit of night elf on the wooden structure, a bit of dwarf on the equipment and a bit of draenei in the purple crystals.

    I grew a little bit more hopeful when I read this:

    "We strive to give each set of props—what we call a 'kit'—logical treatment and placement so that the NPCs look as if they truly belong there. In doing so, it hopefully allows for a more visually rich and rewarding journey for the player."

    but upon taking a look at this, all my hopes ended.



    here, you can see a lot of orc on the walls, a lot of orc on the ceiling, a lot of orc on the gate and a lot of orc on the flag. there's nothing about any other race.

    if this is their representative of what we can expect from horde garrisons, it's just sad for Worcld of Worcraft: Warlorcs of Draenorc.

    and to think the warchief is a troll...
    Warlorcs of Draenorc made me quit. You can't have my stuff.

    I love how you all thought things would change with Garrosh gone. Garrosh will never truly leave the Horde, lest Blizz need another Cataclysm to change 1-60.
    Sometimes I think I should have rolled a Priest....

    yeah it's ridicilous... can you imagine having those buildings in your garrison as a bloodelf? I can't.
    There is only one god and his name is Sargeras.
    Tell them only that the Lich King is dead and that World of Warcraft died with him.

    it's the horde flag, in orc style.

    here's the same horde flag, in undead style:

    "Oh no, a faction founded by Orcs, dominated by Orcs and lead by Orcs has orcish themes!"

    This is like someone from California complaining that they use the same building style as DC

    ... How is that different than say a Night Elf or a Pandaren living in the Alliance Mage Tower or any of the other Alliance Garrison buildings which screams HUMAN? Holy crap, people will whine at *everything* - yes it's Horde and Alliance themed, but the center of each faction is, and will always be, Orcs and Humans, this isn't new, nor will it ever change.

    Would be neat if the flags at least changed based on your race....

    But this is Blizzard, a flag costs a raid tier, they give us a year long final tier anyway, and a pet costs nothing if it costs us $15.

    I can see Pandaren in both factions' garrison. I can't see BElves or Forsaken in the Horde garrison.

    It's the Horde flag how it's almost always been displayed: on a red background. The mount you linked is one of the few exceptions.

    The Warchief may be a troll, but it appears that orcs are still the core of the Horde. We already knew we'd be getting orc-styled garrison buildings, so I'm not certain why this is much of a surprise. And while I'm not sure about you, when I see the Alliance structures, they scream "Human" to me.

    My mains are gnome, draenei and night elf and I'm freaking excited for Garrisons. The idea that my heroes are epic enough to essentially build their own town is awesome, regardless of how 'human' the architecture is.

    Some of you need to learn to appreciate stuff, even when that stuff isn't exactly the way you want it. Try it sometime, its not hard.
    I'm not a defender of Blizzard, I'm an opponent of stupid.

    Don't be stupid, you know what I meant.

    Vol'jin is the Barack Obama of Warchiefs.

    The first one ever to not be an Orc (or white), and basically just an Orc (white) anyway.

    Orcs are still the dominant majority and the heart of the Horde anyway. The Horde icon was formerly the Orc icon. You are the Orcish Horde, and if you expect to be anything else, your only option is to roll Alliance or quit.

    Eh, to be fair, I doubt that Vol'jin will do a whole lot without Thrall either agreeing or disagreeing with it...

    I kinda hope it isnt just one big tusk fetish, as with all orc architecture it gets a little tiring considering its everywhere.

    Can you see a Night Elf or a Draenei or even a Worgen in the Alliance garrisons?
