Just read up a bit on the Seige of Orgimmar. I admit I never anticipated that coming...making Garrosh an actual PvE raid boss. I know Garrosh isn't the most popular lore character among WoW fans, but I never thought Blizz would actually let everyone take a crack at him outside of PvP city raids! Does that mean we get to loot Gorehowl all over again?

it looks like it will be a Battle of Undercity type of scenario. Except in BoU, the royal apocrathy society was just a splinter faction that broke away from the Forsaken, where you fought against constructs, demons and slimes- not the forsaken as a whole. If Garrosh is the target, odds are the entire Warsong Clan will back him up.

Alliance raiding Orgimmar to take down Garrosh? Perfectly understandable.

Horde raiding Orgimmar to take down warchief douchebag? That would entail a whole Horde civil war! There would be Horde loyalists fighting for both sides.

I have a strong feeling Baine will be playing a key role in that, perhaps after realizing how his father was murdered by him. Maybe take up the last stand against him like Tirion did with the Lich King. I could also see Baine being the replacement Horde warchief if Thrall doesn't return.

Exit question: What do you think? Are you ready to take him on? Or are you one of Garrosh's supporters who would fight in his defense?

whoo! can't wait to kill Garrosh, I'd vote for Baine as warchief, and face it, he can hardly do worse than Garrosh.
Also, does this herald a permanent hair colour change for Kleeyo? or will she manage to get the dye out?

Nah, this is the last strip with Kleeyo as a redhead.

I'm gonna go ahead and be the shallow one here and say: WOOO! Naked Kleeyo!

Other then that, I'm interested to see if (as has been hinted at) there will also be a bit of a civil breakdown on the alliance side, but for the most part, yes. Looking forward to teaching Garrosh his place.

Gammon for Warchief!

If they are willing to kill off a character like Garrosh in such a manner, I wouldn't be surprised to see King Varian at the receiving end of a raid somewhere down the line. However Garrosh has been far more ruthless and borderline evil.

King Varian doesn't have that same kind of internal opposition, however. And despite having far greater reasons for his warmongering, he has at least shown his capacity for empathy.
brefin 7th Apr 2012, 9:00 PM edit delete reply
While I agree, that it'd be interesting to see Wrynn taken down, I doubt that would be the core problem. In my opinion, it would be the Dwarfs that had the biggest likelihood of being a potential raid. There's already so much turmoil going on in their ranks since their king turned into the biggest advertisement for Zales out there.
Clef 8th Apr 2012, 12:22 AM edit delete reply
And yes...all the respect in the world goes to Gamon. Who else goes from a lvl 6 punching bag to an 85 elite ready and capable to extract revenge on every player who beat him up as a quest objective.
BLRP 7th Apr 2012, 7:15 PM edit delete reply
Can you say "fan service"?

I just hope the Garrosh thing has a good storyline to it, and it's not something like "he went insane, let's kill him". Because that's what's happened to Deathwing, Malygos, Illidan, Fandral Staghelm and I'm sure a whole bunch of people I haven't mentioned.
Clef 7th Apr 2012, 7:29 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, the evolution of the Azerothian bad-guy has been pretty predictable to date.
Steffi 7th Apr 2012, 7:36 PM edit delete reply
Vol'jin has promised to kill Garrosh so I'm guessing he'll havea big part in the fun and games too :-)

I wonder if they set Garrosh up to be so unlikeable because they planned to have him die right from the start?
Clef 7th Apr 2012, 7:57 PM edit delete reply
Possibly, but Blizz has also been known to tweak lore based on popular opinion. (would have they ever made Venessa Vancleef if there wasn't such outspoken desire for a heroic Deadmines?) They know most everyone hates Garrosh. They make him a raid boss and already look at the support it's built up.
Daisybelle 7th Apr 2012, 8:20 PM edit delete reply
I'd completely forgoten that Kleeyo is naturally auburn.

I see she's also a DD-cup (since we've previously established that no matter what race you are you'll fit into the same clothes as someone bigger or smaller than you)

I guess Talia's mom was right that Talia's face would remain that way - it has! When I saw the last panel I was surprised that there wasn't an additional one with Kleeo giving her daughter a light dunking.
Adamantine 7th Apr 2012, 9:27 PM edit delete reply
Hm... I've to say I'm disappointed in Blizzard removing Garrosh. I am not 100% fond of him, Thrall was a better warchief than Garrosh ever will be - at least, before what they did to Thrall in Cataclysm - but that's not a reason to taking him down that way. From what I understood, the way a new warchief is chosen is with a fight between the current warchief and the guy who disagree with his command and whoever win have the title of warchief. Now, it just seems Blizzard read that players didn't like Garrosh so they found a bad way to have him removed. What does the Alliance care about it? Would they have Thrall be a puppet in their hands? That's an affront and an insult for the Horde.
Clef 7th Apr 2012, 11:21 PM edit delete reply
Well, Thrall was certainly no puppet when he was in power. He did however believe in status quo. The Horde/Alliance war reminds me of America & Soviet Union during the Cold War. Both sides have the power to destroy each other, but ultimate victory for either side would come at too high a cost. Thrall knew that. Garrosh doesn't seem to care.
adamantine 8th Apr 2012, 12:55 PM edit delete reply
Well, I don't know if he doesn't care. Look at it this way. You're a kind of wanabee warchief, before you came the more carismatic warchief that the orc ever known. You've been raised according to orc standarts, that is to say that strength was the most important way to show what you're worth, all that people know of you is that you caught a child sickness so you couldn't accompany the orcs in Azeroth and your father was the downfall of your people. Then, one of your allies think you're responsible of their leader's death (though it's Magatha that poisoned Garrosh's blades). The pressure has to be unbereable. I'm not saying he chose the best thing to do or the best way to lead, but that's the way he upbringing taught him.
Now, about Thrall. Sure, when HE was in power before the Cataclysm, he was deciding on his own what was best for the Horde because Orcs allowed him to lead them. If the Alliance fights and removes Garrosh from the warchief's seat... then Thrall can say farewell to his control over the Horde for I'm sure the Alliance will use it to have its way, saying 'We put you there, you do as we say.'
Tehdruid 8th Apr 2012, 12:36 AM edit delete reply
I will freaking laugh if it ends up being like my fanfic. Which is basically Garrosh doing something so insanely stupid that it effects almost all races, Vol'jin is pissed, but not doing anything until Wrynn comes to org and picks a fight with Garrosh. Then Baine, Vol'jin and the orcs that hate Garrosh all join forces and stand with Wrynn to take him(Garrosh)and those who are loyal to him down. It ends up in a double KO, Garrosh and Wrynn both die, Jaina becomes lead of Stormwind since Wrynn's kid was killed(one of the things that set off Wrynn was his kid being assassinated by whom he thought was one of Garrosh's men) and there is no warchief since neither Baine nor Vol'jin want to be the leader of the horde, so they wait for Thrall to come back and decide. I haven't gotten to the part of my fanfic yet as to who the new warchief will be, but I'm working on it ;)
Seph 8th Apr 2012, 1:12 AM edit delete reply
Just saw your proposed Fanfic, and i agree, that would be awesome. Also, may I also suggest that perhaps Saurfang Senior would become new warchief, Sylvanas would stop doing naughty things, and most importantly: Thrall would stop wearing that girly dress and put back on his armor?
Seph 8th Apr 2012, 12:40 AM edit delete reply
I think it would be interesting to see who will take Garrosh's place as Warchief (Assuming we actually get to kill him, and they don't pull another "Gallywix"). Will it be Baine? Saurfang Senior? Thrall? Thrall’s wife? Lor’themar? Sylvanas? *Vol’jin?!? (Shudders)

However, in regards to who might be the Alliance equivalent to end game boss, I think I know who it is. According to this mmo champ article:

I think that the alliance endgame boss is, to my dismay, Jaina Proudmoore. The first thing you see here in regards to Jaina is that, “Blizzard has talked about turning Jaina's hair all white because of the shock, and her becoming this very violent and dangerous mage.” It even fits the pattern that BLRP mentioned. I honestly hope that I’m wrong though. I mean, when I mentioned that they might off Jaina back in comic 37, I was choosing the least-likely character to become a villain to show how far they would have to fall to get to that point!
Clef 8th Apr 2012, 2:20 AM edit delete reply
Hmm. I got the impression Seige of Orgrimmar was like battle of Undercity...something both factions could take part in. If they seriously make Jaina an insane end boss, then yeah, I too would be seriously disappointed in the new lore.
Tinymurder 9th Apr 2012, 3:00 PM edit delete reply
My threshold for lore that is "beaten to fit and painted to match" is a good deal lower. Crappy retconned lore is why I stopped playing my worgen by level 23 and deleted him shortly thereafter. Lore is about a third of the reason I cancelled my account. Lore is what makes me despise all Night Elves and most of Cataclysm, DW especially. I'm not even a lore nazi, I just have a strong dislike for internal inconsistency and retconning. It's their bloody game, & they can't even be bothered to pay attention to the history they create.
Dodweon 8th Apr 2012, 1:18 AM edit delete reply
Something I only thought now...
Gamon is loyal to the horde, and Garrosh made him the badass tauren he is today. Will Gamon be one of the raid bosses? Hope not, I can`t kill that guy only for epic loot and valor points.

About our new leader, if Baine turns into the new warchief (I guess he will not, but ok), then I`m pretty sure Varian will die, Anduin will be the new king and alliance and horde will leave in peace forever.
But I guess Vol`jin will be our warchief.

If they didnt make Hogger a raid boss, they won't make gamon a raid boss. Hogger got the promotion to...Stormwind Stockades!? C'moooooon....that was lame. They should have at least made him a roaming raid boss like the whale shark in Vash'ir...only smaller.
Bloodraptor(Echo Isles) 8th Apr 2012, 4:24 AM edit delete reply
I'm not happy that Garrosh is gonna be a raid. lets hope Varian dies first if Garrosh gets the kibosh. I know the event is gonna be hell, but I'll take part for the epics.

if I could, I'd rise up as the first Blood Elf warchief and be more strateigic in it. maybe capture a few prisoners. force Alliance to receed, drop a few massive goblin bombs to wipe out proud gnomes, and give Varian an ultimatum, "Surrender or extinction", and position Goblin balloons so high above alliance cities with armored wedges ready to turn Alliance capitols into craters.

needless to say, it would be a cool arc if I had supporters from Alliance too.

but I digress. :p

I thought that tauren calf's little bath game was too cute. XD she's just so adorable! XD
Tinymurder 9th Apr 2012, 3:11 PM edit delete reply
Bigger and badder people than you have tried to wipe out the gnomes, and we're still here. I'm not a rabid jackhole like Ulric, but if you try to punt me I'll chop your leg off at the knee. Bomb my town, I'll nuke yours. We gnomes have no sense of proportion, so I suggest living by the immortal words of Agent J:

"Don't start none, won't be none."
Druds the druid 8th Apr 2012, 4:57 AM edit delete reply
While he is a hothead.......... Thrall was right the horde stronger and does not back down and does not exept corruption, but he is too blood-thirsty even for the horde. So i feel kinda split on fighting garrosh also i think vol"jin would also back this up ( i wondernif there is an alliance verson for this)
Druds the druid 8th Apr 2012, 5:10 AM edit delete reply
Also garrosh is taller than a tauren :0


Garrosh is a WAY better leader than garrosh! At least garrosh bothers to habe the horde stay honorable! He hates killing inocents (stonetalon moutains) And lead his troops to battle! But VARIAN! Just sits on his butt all day ans turns a blind eye to those in need while he eats like a king the alliances people HIS people! Are starving! The horde does have simlarties but when you look at it night elvs and humans are SO different!

omegadeadpool 8th Apr 2012, 9:29 PM edit delete reply
It's been confirmed that both sides will kill Garrosh, there will be no "horde equivalent" as both will down him. It's also been stated that Varian will be getting a storyline that shows he is the true high king of the Alliance. In the press tour they mentioned that he will even be sympathetic to the horde citizens, saying stuff like "Do not harm innocent citizens, they are not responsible for their leader's actions." so he will better learn compassion and mercy it seems.

Excellent. They couldn't have done that better.
Seph 9th Apr 2012, 12:41 AM edit delete reply
You sure there's no "Horde Equivilant"? positive? Cause, if your right, then that would make me really happy, for then Jaina may still remain safe (although, i'm afraid they may still have bad plans for her still, since they also plan on burning theramore plot-wise(

I mean, Jaina sacrificed so much in the name of survival and peace, and I'd hate to see all of it be destroyed by the man-encased-in-falling-snow. (But seriously, if your right, which i think you are), then i'd be really grateful.

Funny enough, my Horde guild was starting a conspiracy to replace Garrosh before the announcement took place.
We're deffinately gonna be workin' our butts off to get geared as fast as we can so we can take him out!

Our replacement ideas at the moment are either Saurfang the Elder or Rexxar, the Warchief does need to be an orc and we do need someone that the orcs at least will follow.
Lycanthrope 10th Apr 2012, 3:40 AM edit delete reply
I am ready to kill Garrosh.

My Tauren Death Knight is ready to kill Garrosh.

I have a few more horde characters that WANT to be ready to kill Garrosh.

I do not see Baine as replacement, as so many have said the orcs need an orc to follow. And after Vol'jin plants that arrow in Garrosh's chest he may not be completely welcome around Orgrimmar.
anasazi 11th Apr 2012, 8:16 AM edit delete reply
for myself i hope Varian does take on Garrosh and its MAD so then Sylvanas and Jaina take over the rulership on both sidde so then we have Queens who both want peace but know it will probably never work but are willing to try. that way i can also finally start my guild "the Queen's Own Highlanders" on both sides B)

also i prefer Kleeyo as a redhead but thats just me B)
Clef 11th Apr 2012, 4:12 PM edit delete reply
You think there would be peace if there were two armies lead by vindictive rival WOMEN!?

Varian and Garrosh just want to use their forces to beat the %$# out of each other. Those two would take the war to a whole different level.

Peace in World of Warcraft? Peace only happen between game incarnations.

If we see peace it will be between WoW and whatever the next warcraft they release.

I expect something along the lines of Vol'Jin, King Varian, and Cairne will be the main ones attacking Orgrimmar and that during the fight against Garrosh, Thrall will step in and be all like "Stop this madness!" and that no one will die.
Also, does this mean we will see more boobs throughout the comics?
Darron 11th Apr 2012, 9:26 PM edit delete reply
Baine not Cairne
omegadeadpool 14th Apr 2012, 6:31 AM edit delete reply
There is rumors saying that after Theremore is sacked and Jaina becomes more "Rawr Mage Smash" that she will be captured by Garrosh, Tortured, and be set for execution by Garrosh. dunno how valid that is, but it would give Varian a HUGE reason to lay siege to Orgrimmar, and on the flip side, stir Thrall to return and retake the mantle of Warchief from Garrosh, As he would not stand for one of the few humans he respects and cares for to be killed in that way.
Darron 14th Apr 2012, 5:58 PM edit delete reply
I dont think Thrall will become Warchief again though. He'll probably stay with the Earthen Ring while everything is rebuilt. Chances are another orc will take charge since they are the ones who started the Horde.
Treadstone 15th Apr 2012, 4:27 PM edit delete reply
I love Kleeyo fanservice. She's just so awesome. I humbly request more!

As for the Garrosh thing, as Alliance I'm not really excited about the raid on Orgrimmar. It's the Horde that stands to gain the most from removing Garrosh. Alliance won't be dealing any sort of blow to their long-time foes if they defeat Garrosh. Thrall will just step in, thank Varian Wrynn, and then the Horde will just continue operating as normal - perhaps even better, under Thrall's renewed leadership.
Ketchup 15th Apr 2012, 7:03 PM edit delete reply
I'm guessing a lot of people never read "The Shattering - Prelude to the Cataclysm" by Christie Golden, but Baine isn't all up in arms about Garrosh. The fact that they both knew that it was Magatha's doing, and they both joined the battle to take Thunder Bluff back from the Grim Totems, suggests that Baine isn't blaming Garrosh for his father's death. Plus Baine's really mellow, like a hippie.
Peco 20th Apr 2012, 5:34 PM edit delete reply
My alliance side is happy, I get to kill Garrosh yay!

My horde side is even more happy, I killing the incompeten idiotic, moron ogre headed buffon I have as warchief, MEGA YAY!

I vote sylvanas for warchief xD (?)

Ok, in a more realistic out of the "I love Sylvanas suit" the best warchief the horde could have that is not Thrall is Varosh Saurfang, period
