    Wheat in Nagrand!?

    I am shocked and appauled that Blizzard would spit in our faces and have wheat growing in Nagrand. Wheat is obviously a human-harvested grass used to make bread. Which orcs eat bread? Preposterous! There's no wheat in the in-game version of Nagrand, so why would they show it here? I understand nothing of cinematic liberties, the rule of cool, and the importance of subtle story elements, but all that doesn't matter because what the fuck, it's WHEAT.

    Unsubbed, unfaved, blammed, 0/5. I roll over in my bed and weep silently. I look in the face of Blizzard and recognise nothing of the manwomancompany I used to love.
    If World of Warcraft has taught me anything, it's that teaching a crowd something is far harder than teaching individuals.

    Maybe Thrall likes white bread or wheat beer, after staying 30+ on Azeroth..

    How dare you. I am nitpicking because I care. I know how to best tell Blizzard's story, and this is the final straw!

    Get it
    Straw

    Wheat

    What? You think it is possible that he returned from Azeroth to Nagrand and brought seeds with him? Preposterous.

    I know, don't feed the trolls, but looking at all the raging in this forum, I am really not sure if OP is trolling or serious.

    i mean, he was raised by humans, eating bread to him is probably the same as it is to you and me :P

    Wheat doesn't grow it's grains in spirals, nor does it have bulbous growths at the stem.

    How dare you insinuate my legitimate concerns over something of this importance arent legit.

    What makes you think even Azeroth as a Planet has wheat.

    My point exactly..

    And getting a sack (or 10) of wheat, and sow it in Nagrand is not unrealistic..

    It's not wheat, though. Looks similar, but as has been pointed out, wheat doesn't grow grains in spirals.

    Actually there are plenty of wheat products in orc foods found in game.
    Mag'har grainbread is the simplest version but beyond that they make crepes stuffed with Rylak meat, something akin to cinnamon buns that they call rylak claws, there are Bladespire Bagels and a lot of breaded meats.

    To me what's the most shocking is the cinematic difference vs in-game.

    Wheat Rolls exists... Ergo, wheat must also exist.

    Good call! WHERE IS THE SPLIT TREE, BLIZZARD?

    That split tree survived the BREAKING OF A WORLD in order to keep its splitted goodness visible to all on that floaty rock.
    A clear sign of nature's defiance in the face of overwhelming odds!
    And they just FORGOT ABOUT IT.

    Completely unplayable. Blizzard is literally becoming Satan.
