Warning: This post will contain spoilers.
Now that I've got that out of the way so I know you are reading this of your own free will and I will not spoil any information for you I can go on with my little story. Admittedly if you are reading this you most likely have read other stuff online and know exactly what I am spoiling here so it will not be a spoiler, but I had not make sure. I used to try to avoid spoilers but do not any more so I can understand why some people might still be trying to avoid them. Although with all the stories, news and updates we see, I find it would be really hard to avoid spoilers. So I guess I live by the motto, if you can't beat them, join them, and now I too do not avoid spoilers.
Now lets get to killing off the green jesus and fast.
I used to really like thrall, he was one of my favorite characters in warcraft and I must say I have always loved his armor in the battle of mount hyjal. When it comes to looking cool I think he was the bees knees there. That was one kick ass set of armor, even more so for a shaman. It looked more warrior like than shaman like. He was the warrior shaman and it looked awesome.
The thing is I am getting a little sick and tired of him stepping in and stealing my thunder. Isn't this the expansion that I am supposed to be the hero? I mean I have my own garrison, kind of like king of my own land. I have followers that will live and die on my word, everyone calls me commander, they call me the greatest azeroth has to offer. This entire expansion is supposed to be to stroke my ego as the biggest hero of the world and yet thrall still takes every single chance he can to steal my thunder.
I am getting sick and tired of this guy butting his head in. I was okay with the deathwing fight because after all we never really fought deathwing, we just gave him a pedicure and a slap or two in the chin, it was thrall and the aspects that brought him down to his knees so I could make sure there was no junk imbedded in his toe nails. BTW, do you know what they call that goo between deathwings toes? Slow running gnomes.
Even if we needed thrall at that moment my hate for him had already started to build and it really was due to no fault of his own. Blame aggra for that and that stupid quest line in cataclysm where we battled elements to help save thrall and I had to listen to that annoying whiny voice yell go'el over and over. She made me start to dislike thrall. Then by the time we really needed thrall I had already hated him because I hated her. If that was what the voice actor was going for when she did the voice of aggra, creating a character that when she spoke it felt like finger nails being scraped down a chalkboard, then I have to say that was a wonderful job. The voice actor nailed it, no pun intended.
Then the end of mists came and there was thrall all high and mighty once again, oddly enough saying that the elements where not listening to him while our shaman was having no problems what so ever communicating with the elements. What is wrong now mr high and mighty? Suffering from a bout of impotence, maybe you need some viagra to get your totems to rise to the occasion.
All I could say is get your butt to the sidelines where it belongs green skin and that is exactly what he did. Even if there might have been a few points here and there where he could have assisted us he just stood there like a wall flower staring at the ceiling. Useless and limp. Yet when it was all said and done he wanted to come down and finish garrosh off. Hell no green skin, hell no. This is for theramore, if anyone is going to lay the last blow on this homicidal beast you left in charge and had to know was emotionally unstable it would be me, or at least some member of the alliance. But no, once again you had to insert yourself somewhere you had no business being.
Thrall was lucky taran zhu stopped us all from killing garrosh because if he would have even tried to land a blow on garrosh the next orc to fall would have been him and his "oh no I am so scared the elements are not working for me" lame ass. Somewhere in the back of my mind I really believe thrall wanted garrosh to kill all of us and was only faking that the elements were not responding so he had some excuse for letting us die. He is as bad as the scum he left in your place and deserve to die right there with him.
Can you tell I am getting a little angry with him butting in? But it is okay, I can live with it. Two expansions in a row of green jesus to the rescue. He is chris metzens love child, what else do you expect. He has to be the god of everything that happens in game and basically that is why I started to dislike him. No one likes a character like that. I am sure if thrall could speak he would not even like what he has become. He used to be an orc of honor, respect, and dignity. He was intelligent and poised and a great leader. At least he was up until the point he was promoted to demi god.
So enter warlords and me finally being able to quest in nagrand last week after they fixed the alliance introduction quest. I fought the good fight while fighting off the warsong clan. I made great strides for the people of azeroth in defending ourselves from the iron horde by killing rank and file soldiers, commanders, and other important people as I worked my way through weakening the ranks of the warsong clan.
I did it not for me and not even for the alliance, but for all people of azeroth, to save our world, and that includes the horde in azeroth. I am fighting for everyone. I am the hero, I should be considered a neutral character because I am saving not only my people but the people who call me their enemy. I am working to save everyone.
I fight my way through the ranks and make my way into grommasher and meet up with yrel, who has some really awesome paladin abilities I wish my paladin had, and we make our way to garrosh. The person that is responsible for me being here, the reason I might never be able to return home, the reason me and many of the fellow patriots might end up taking our last breath on an alien planet because we might never return as we had to close the gate behind us.
I am here to cut the head from the beast and then cull the remaining threat, but first, the one that is the voice from a world different that has been whispering into the ear of the iron horde, the one that has given them the desire, means and knowledge and made them want to come to our world and take it over. I shall end him and in doing so end him feeding them any more information, any more intelligence, more strategy to the iron horde.
I am here to do what I should have done during the siege and kill the beast known as garrosh. I fought through countless warsong forces to make my way to garrosh with a small but elite army at my side. When I make it to garrosh he is surrounded by hundreds of orcs, all at his command, all probably able of outnumbering me easily, but garrosh does not call for their aid, he comes at me alone, he comes at me with honor, he comes at me as an orc who respects what it means to be an orc. For a brief moment he earns my respect because of showing such honor, but that does not change the fact that he needs to die, but at least he will die as all orc warriors should, fighting with honor.
With my trusty shale spider pet and yrel at my side I take to the task of bringing down the destroyer of the vale, the devil of theramore, the slaughterer of druids. He is weaker than he was last I recall when it took me and all my friends to down him. Perhaps he did not have the ease of getting into this world like I did, the ease of just stepping through a portal. Maybe whatever it was that kairoz did to transfer them to another dimension weakened him some, maybe what I did to him back when we last meet is still a lingering injury, maybe the sha infestation leaving him has weakened him some, whatever it might have been, he was not the dangerous orc I once faced in battle.
He still had strength, do not get me wrong, but with my trusty spider taking the hits and yrel making sure we were all healed while fighting at my side, he was no match for me. I wore him down little by little. He was no push over, he was still a strong orc, one of the strongest I have ever had the privilege to meet on the field of battle and just as I had him where I wanted him and I was going to put an end to his depraved path of war and destruction trall descends from the sky like the green jesus he is and takes over, stealing my thunder, in a freaking quest. A freaking quest. He could not even let me finish a quest without butting in.
In the end it was thrall that put and end to garrosh, not me. Even if I had him dead to rights, even if there was nothing he could do against me, the honor of victory was mine. Thrall came literally out of nowhere, I had not seen him at any time recently, as if he was stalking me, waiting for a moment where he could come and steal my glory. The green jesus with performance anxiety issues who can't do anything on his own had to steal my moment. I fought for the people of azeroth, as a hero of azeroth, I was the one that worked my way through waves of warsong enemies, I was the one that brought garrosh to his knees not once but twice, it was to be my honor to kill him and thrall stole my honor.
So I want my honor back and the only way to get it is to kill the one that stole my honor. Thrall must die, he must die at my hands and he must die before the end of warlords. I will place a bolt between his eyes and stand in a pool of his blood and if aggra even once yells go'el I will kill her too just because of her annoying voice.
I am sick and tired of thrall, the person I once liked, I once looked up to, I once respected. He showed little class and less honor than any single person I had ever run into. In the end even garrosh had more honor than thrall did. He fought me with hundreds of his forces around him. He could have overwhelmed me with his forces but he fought me, with honor. And thrall, the honorless low life green jesus came and stole the glory. He is an orc with no honor and an orc with no honor, as any orc will tell you, should die. So, thrall must die. Even his own people would agree. He has no honor.
What would happen if everyone would no-life PvE? - You probably heard of my suggestion (many times mentioned on the blog and on the official forum), to place an account-wide time limit on simple farming act...
