It's architecturally one of the cooler designed things they've done as far as cities go.
You could say this about Gilneas as well.

Or any other Human kingdom that's not Stormwind or Dalaran, really.

So I guess we're not talking about Theramore?

Oh yeah Theramore too.

The Horde hasn't just threatened Alliance cities, they've outright conquered 4 (Theramore, Gilneas, Capital City, Stromgarde)

Between the Shatterspear forces, the ships docked at Zoram'gar Outpost and the infantry push all the way across Ashenvale to Maestra's Post, the Horde got pretty close to Darnassus.

By the way every one of those city conquests I listed was immediately followed by the Horde massacring every single inhabitant

With the exception of Theramore, in which literally every non-combatant escaped. Also excepting Stromgarde, since its population relocated to Refuge Point. Also excepting Lordaeron, since its population was wiped out by the Scourge before coming back and joining the Horde. And Gilneas too, I guess, considering so many people survived that even just the Worgen portion of the population are numerous enough to make up a playable race.

But except for those four, all four cities you listed had the Horde massacring every single inhabitant.

It wouldn't be a new thread if it didn't have it's virginity broken with pointless faction bitching.

Fucking lol Kellick

"It wasn't a massacre, some people escaped!"

Everyone who didn't escape beforehand got massacred. Does that make you feel better.

I guess it is kind of pointless. If the Horde was ever going to answer for anything, it would have done so already.

Sorry it's just that someone said that the Horde has never even gotten close to threatening an Alliance city and I had to spend like 5 posts explaining just how fucking wrong that statement is

Maybe not every single people died, but more likely Theramore, Stromgarde, and Gilneas have all been reduced to refugee populations.

And Lordaeron

ffs I'm the only one who cares aren't I

Edit: Also Refuge Point in Arathi's status is still up in the air with the fact that the Forsaken apparently conquered Stromgarde while we were all faffing about on AU Draenor

I like this one. Let's keep him.
The comic is about how his dad has taught him that the peace he loves has to be fought for. Which involves killing. Which he does as he discusses this point in the comic. It is meant to show maturing and balancing of approach.

The problem is, it's not really that dramatic of a character shift. He's willing to fight now, so what? He's likely still going to end up forcing Greymane to make peace with Sylvanas for the "Greater Good" just like his father did, by the end of this expansion.

I don't know about you but I don't think anyone who smashes a Dreadlord in the face with a LightHammer of FuckYou qualifies for anything the originatiing post insinuated.

But then again that's just a regrettable trend among this playerbase.

At this point, it's mostly that nobody here really cares enough about the lore to get pissed at it for more than 4 minutes and 16 seconds. That's not enough time to cover the whole Lordaeron situation.


Also, do Fojar and Kellick know each other? Since they are both Ontarian history students who live in the horrible city of Toronto.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it heavily implied that the non-combatants who escaped from Theramore were promptly captured by the Horde and are the ones being used for bloodsport by the Dragonmaw and Blackrock forces during the Siege of Orgrimmar?

I'm just trying not to build so much respect for him only for it to be lost again, that's all.
