Default What if Lor'themar

So, My fan-wank cannot be contained.

So tell me, what do you think would be the future of the Horde if good ol'Lor'themar becomes warchief?

Nothing at all?

or something exciting!

Feed me your fury/thoughts.

The Horde becomes civilized and all the other Horde members learn personal hygiene.

He'll enter secret talks with Varian about total surrender but ends up getting ousted by Sylvanas via Mak'gora before his plans come to fruition .

Noo, I think Lor has a bit of love for the Horde, don't think he would sell them out. But I do think he would use them. Recourses, cheap labour, pretences of unity more 'You are our the Blood Elvesí slaves'.

Would probably be better for the Alliance than the Horde in terms of player-perceived "bias," since the guy has zero drive for expansion and is a practiced diplomat besides, but it would be good for the Horde in-universe IMO. At least in the long run.

On the other hand, Mike "lok'tar" Hordey the true orcish hero of true Hordeness and his pals would flip shit over not having a brute lead the faction and this poor feedback would inevitably lead us to kill an old god-corrupted Theron in two expansions. RIP.

Best have a leader from the core Kalimdor trio to avoid this.

Oh god, you are right.

Well that totally shits over my Lor'themar dreams.

Definitely can see Halduron and Vol'jin doing just that.

Lor'themar could be an interested Warchief, and I wonder whether he'd be isolationist, making Horde into one big Quel'Thalas, or have an active foreign policy, trying to reestablish the Horde's place in Dalaran or retake the Sunfury bases on Draenor.

I don't think isolationist if honest, I see his focus remaining on Quel'thalas.

However I would also think he would try to enforce the Horde's place in the world, keeping them peaceful, keeping the alliance at armís length (Hopefully) and able to rebuild the Horde in to something stronger than under Thrall or Garrosh.

I do wonder if the Horde will take kindly to it, the Blood Elves have been hugely inactive within the horde until very recently. Will the recent battles be enough to ensure loyalty, I do not.

If I remember to become Warchief one must beat the previous one, or step down and give it to the strongest warrior. Lor'themar is unproven by orcish culture, but he, if any of the candidates would be the one to win them over.

It's not like Bob is weak, and all the remaining badass orc warriors, like Saurfang or Rexxar are on Team Thrall. All he has to is kick some ass and establish respect.

Also, Bob doesn't like being the politician. Remember his quotes during the war with the Thunder King?

Oh, I never said he was, he is quite the bad-ass.

And I do, they only forcing me to think he would be perfect for it.

But, what do you think for the future of the horde should 'bob' become Warchief.

I expect the Horde to be fully dedicated to magic. Silvermoon would become Dalaran 2.0, and I expect armies of battle mages.

The Alliance takes over Lordaeron after sending over a supply of Dalaran's finest hair care products to make up for the shortage caused by Garrosh's war.

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.

Common, we all know Alliance is -never- going to get Lordaeron back

How beautiful that would have been.

I would like to think the elves start giving the horde a better education in magic if pragmatic. However, I wonder if they will teach another race again after the mistakes they made with humans.

Aside from wild parties with the trolls, the horde's military focus switches from large armies to small strike teams, a la the farstriders. Teams of farstriders and tauren hunters do the majority of the military actions, with occasional support from individual casters. For the majority of casters, their duties switch to the homefront, doing non-military work.

If Dalaran releases the sunreavers to Quel'thalas, there'd be peace and cooperation. If Dalaran doesn't, there'd still be official peace, but the horde would not be cooperative (though not in any threatening way. Just not very forthcoming in trading deals, sharing intelligence, etc.)

I would see Lor'themar explaining what realpolitik is to all the Horde members, as a first thing first. Then, he would try to get the cooperation of the neutrals to get back the prisoned Sunreavers in Dalaran. Once he would have get them, he would try to better the position of the Horde, thus undermining whatever treaty could have been made after SoO (for instance, I could see him getting back the "former" -in this case- Horde possessions in Ashenvale thanks to the cooperation of Cenarion Circle and the Argent Crusade pushing respectively Darnassus and Stormwind to agree).

You know, I've always thought that the Trolls and Blood Elves should get together and form the Horde equivalent to Dalaran. You could get a cool mixture of golden spires among stone ziggaurats too.

That being said, I don't think he'd be able to command the loyalty of the Kalimdor Horde. Maybe the Trolls, but only if Vol'jin is backing him. The Tauren would have no reason to listen to him, and the Orcs would probably resent having a non-orcish warchief. The Goblins might fall in line, but that depends on their profit.

And in the EK, the Forsaken just keep on being bastards.

I'd put to death the hope for High Elves being playable for Alliance.
