Blizzard already mentioned it wouldn't be Vol'jin or Baine, as both were too obvious of choices.

That leaves it being either Lor'Themar, Sylvanas (which is doubtful),or a return of Thrall to the Warchief.


They've also said it wouldn't be Thrall, since they wanted his story to move forward and felt bringing him back as Warchief would be moving backwards.

In other words, they heard all the fan complaints and Metzen's boss vetoed it.

Sylvanas 2013

Baine and Vol'jin are boring and predictable "noble savage" archetypes

Lor'themar, though he finally got some airtime this expansion, hasn't yet made up for five years of being basically invisible

**** Thrall

The Banshee Queen is the choice for people who want a proven leader and competent military commander at the helm of the Horde.

So kick out one genocidal maniac who only cares about orcs for another genocidal maniac who only cares about the forsaken? Sure, I'm down with that. Then we can rise up and kill HER in the next patch.

See, I think the difference is Sylvanas isn't as comically arrogant and impulsive as Garrosh is and will have the good sense to not constantly attack other Horde races... not while the Alliance is still around, at least. Plus she's sort of buddies with Lor'themar.

Is that supposed to be an endorsement?

I honestly don't see why it WOULDN'T be Thrall again to be honest. Sylvanas doesn't care in the least bit about the Horde, Loth... whatever, Blood Elf guy is too much of a nobody, and I can't see Baine being it. Vol'jin.. I could MAYBE see, but then again Thrall would probably want to take over again to make sure something like this didn't happen a second time.
#18Sir WillPosted 1/19/2013 9:54:44 PM
Thrall's also quite busy. And I think he might be better suited in his roll as neutral now.

Lor'themar hates Sylvanas, she blackmailed him into participating in the Northrend war by threatening to cut off Horde support to the Blood Elves.

I doubt it'd be Sylvanas because she's becoming the damn Lich Queen. If they said it wouldn't be Thrall, VJ, or LT then who could it be? Gallywix? :P
