Default So now that we're back on past Draenor

Can we find out who Garrosh's mother, when Grom had kids, and why? Honestly one of the big problems with Garrosh's characters was he just appeared from nowhere because Blizzard wanted to use Grom's popularity for a pvp character.

She's dead, so I doubt she'll be mentioned. The decision stinks of laziness.

Where was that mentioned?

Honestly, I just have a hard time imagining Grom Hellscream having a wife and kid, he just didn't seem like the kind of guy who'd have time or be interested in that during his youth.

Yeah anybody Grom would respect enough to shag / could live through the process / could put up with him must've been pretty badass, seems a shame to write her off with "Oh she died already" and not have... y'know, a name or a how associated with it.

I was thinking Earlier that Blackhand is the ONLY orc besides Thrall whose whole family we know.

Blackhand, Urukal, Rend, Maim, Griselda.

I've always assumed that female orcs were like "You. Me. Baby. Now." The only exceptions were Draka, and, that one Orc who stabbed her lover.

That fits the portrayal of literally no orcish women Noit.

Good point, I don't imagine Grom as a person who'd get married easily, so it'd make sense if Mrs. Hellscream was a powerful warrior.

Another missed opportunity.

Also it'd be cool if they did something with Griselda, but I'm betting they'll just make her a raidboss or footnote.

Several NPCs fit that, but not any major lore-wives if thats what you mean.

Find me a female orc that isn't Draka/involved with Thrall that is a mother/lover who has the same/similar depth to Draka. I can name you single orc women, but not the mothers/lovers. So I'm saying that I doubt there's a big story on who Garrosh's mother is and how she and Grom got together.

Perhaps there's something I'm not getting, none of them seem particularly baby crazed.

The third as far as I can tell is single.

My comment was about female orcs and relationships/parenting.

.........That wasn't an "orc women crazy for babies" statement, that was a "Orc women don't have much depth being mothers and lovers compared to them being single unless they're related to Thrall" statement. Do we know anything about Saurfang's wife? Kilrog's?

How much do we even know about women in Warcraft besides, Jaina, Tyrande, and Sylvanas?

And Neeka Bloodscar, Jediga, and Okrilla and Gorgonna are some of the best orcs ever.

As we all know Orcish women are just like Human women and love romance, dates, courting, cuddling, and all sorts of other girly stuff because I hate variety and feel like the only way to make people empathize with Orcs is to take away anything that makes them seem foreign to westerners.
