Default MoP Press Tour Lore Thread

So i am already creating this thread for a focused conversation on the the overload of NEW LORE information we are about to receive in a few hours.

i just created a new "MoP Press Tour Non-Lore Thread" in the WoW Section.

i just don't want to mix the new stuff and the discussion of it with the general MoP talk over in "The big ol' MoP thread" so that we don't have ONE GIANT Thread.

I hope the Mods are ok with this.

well whatever stuff they put some of it bound to lead to a discussion on MoP Lore, so why not have a thread for it.

We can also use this thread later on for the general MoP Lore Discussion. This way we'll have a lore and non lore thread for MoP rather than one for everything.

the threads are for "sorting" the discussions coz SoL has the tendency to bloat such threads xD

Curll sat down with some members of CDev so at the very least he'll get us some.

The event itself wouldn't have much lore. The interviews are where any lore tidbits would be given.

Oh there was lore. Curll was just too lazy to record it because he's a terrible journalist.

I said as much as I knew at the time. Curll (who proceeded to correct me) tends to be very connected with news and inside info so I'd take his word on this.

The final patch of Mists of Pandaria will be the Siege of Orgrimmar! Both factions lay siege to the city to bring Garrosh down and end his reign of Warchief.

I think it's just going to be as simple as he's a warmongering dick and just goes too far.

I don't really know what to say about this whole "Siege Orgrimmar to bring down Garrosh"

Wouldn't it be better if he was just taken out by the Alliance during the war instead of getting betrayed by the Horde?

Yes but he is a warmongering dick full of negative emotions that allows him to get corrupted by a Sha

Image this:


But with like a huge, monsterous jaw (like that picture) and claws and giant black spikes coming out all over his body. And like, dual-wielding shadow Gorehowls. It would be awesome.

They might go with the Sha thing to spice up the fight a bit. I mean, right now he's just an orc with an axe.

Bah! The Horde should defend Garrosh, lose horribly, and like it.

Besides, it's hypocritical to kill Garrosh and leave Sylvanas alone. (And that is all I will say on the subject.)

The Alliance's three rules on faction conflict:
1) You can't win.
2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.
