Mists of Pandaria Updates
Okie, so despite the fact I am currently working on other things too, I could not let this pass by without commenting!
First of all, woohoo! The new models are here! The new models are here!
But despite the hype surrounding the release of the new female Pandaren concept (which I have been eager about too and quite impressed with many of the fanart ideas out there on the interwebz), I am actually more taken, shocked, stunned, awed, and intrigued by a completely unrelated update included with this press release by Blizzard. (And the reason I had to drop everything I post my thoughts.)
Number one, at the top of the list:
- Garrosh will be this expansion’s final boss
Can we say OMGOMGOMG?
Garrosh, son to the one who both enslaved and redeemed the Orcish race?? Garrosh, the hotheaded, impetuous young new leader of the Horde?? Garrosh, the one appointed by Thrall to take over leadership of the Horde, despite council from his other allies against it?? Garrosh, the one currently seeking more territory, more resources, and more dominance over all cost of life to either the Alliance OR the Horde?? Garrosh, murderer of Cairne Bloodhoof, the former leader of the Tauren?? (Yayaya, so he did not know his blade was poisoned, but he did know it was a fight to the death.)
Garrosh, the one who I am sure is behind the upcoming and mysterious destruction of Theramore?? Garrosh, who I dare say has made at least twice the enemies as he has friends over his course through the Warcraft storyline??
Even the level-headed Vol’jin, Chieftain of the Darkspear Trolls, appears in the new Cata Troll starter quests with one of my favorite interactions, a past conversation between he and Garrosh:
Image of Vol’jin says: I know exactly what I’ll be doin’ about it, son of Hellscream. I’ll be watchin’ as ya people slowly become aware of ya ineptitude. I’ll laugh as dey grow ta despise ya as I do. And when tha time comes dat ya failure is complete and ya “power” is meaningless, I will be dere to end ya rule, swiftly and silently. Ya will spend ya reign glancin’ over ya shoulda and fearin’ tha shadows, for when tha time comes and ya blood be slowly drainin’ out, ya will know exactly who fired da arrow dat pierced ya heart.
I dare say – this will be a good raid.
Oh yah, and we get an 11th slot on each server, to make a Pandaren. And they added back in auto-attack. (Phew.)
