Default Warchief idea: Female Warchief?

Now now. Before you start shooting down my idea or calling me names or it's against lore or not manly or what not just read.

I had a idea for Warchief(I posted in wow story forum) How about a female Warchief. Now you might be thinking that Orc Males should be Warchief of the Horde. But there have been Female Orc's that hold High Ranking roles in the Horde Military. Most notably Gorgonna. I think Gorgonna should be a good candidate for Warchief. She unlike Thrall or Garrosh, she has good judgement and knows right from wrong, she's a great leader and show's mercy for her enemies and fight's sternly. She grew up in a interment camp like Thrall but is not foolish to leave warmongering buffoon to lead the Horde into the Ground. Her parents both drank Mannoroths blood and fought and agrees that Orcs should repent their past actions.

Just my idea for Warchief. If you think otherwise or more to add feel free.

While plausible, I'm not certain that there is anyone who has been built up enough to be Warchief in WoW.

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.

The only people I could think of that are built up to Warchief are Thrall/Go'el. Eitrigg or Gorgonna. I like Gorgonna cause I think she has good potential to become a great Warchief and lead her people through hard times than Garrosh. Not saying Thrall is bad, hes good but he got's lots of Development and screen time and I think Gorgonna could bring some new character flavor to females of the horde than just Garona and Sylvanas.

Gorgonna is pretty obscure. If it isn't going to be Thrall then its going to be somebody who actually appeared in Cata or MoP at release.

The only female I can think of who's both had enough exposure and is fresh enough in the player's minds would be Zaela. That could make a theme out of it, first we had a regular orc, then a mag'har, then a whatever reason Dragonmaws look different from other clans.

I didn't think about Zaela until now. She too as a interesting candidate for Warchief do I might worry she might end up like Garrosh as she did take interest in him and his leadership.

I agree with you and HalfElfDragon that Gorgonna might not be remembered so well from the previous xpack and that Zaela played a huge role in the Twilight highlands Horde questing side that most players will be familiar with and not be ba-dazzled if Gorgonna becomes warchief.

This. Not to mention there is the consideration that women in the Horde have only been officially equal to men for less than a decade.

But let's look at some of the female candidates for the warchief: (only looking at orcs right now)

Gorgonna's exploits consist of saying no to her sister, defying orders and killing her. The last of these was fine, as it was essentially a Mak'gora but set up by the one who's usually the defendant, but the prior may have undermined Horde efforts in the Grizzly Hills (depending on what other deviating there was). Outside of that was a few lines in the Garrosh short story... not much.

Garona. No. Half-Orc with loyalty issues. Formerly employed by Gul'dan and Cho'gall.

Zaela. Is given power by the Horde for her part in the battle against the Fel Warchief Mor'ghor. Promptly loses many of the Dragonmaw's best men, who outright refused to work with her and the Horde (real display of leadership there), and nearly loses the a priceless artifact that keeps the Dragonmaw on their feet. When the Horde starts holding her hand, she does better. When it doesn't... suffice to say she's no warchief material.

Sergra Darkthorn, Okrilla, and most other female orcs. Not enough screen time (like the others above) and very little has actually been done by her.

Hey, it sounds like a believable orc stripper name. That's all that matters.

I'd honestly be happier with Gorgonna staying mostly away from the limelight actually. She's one of those great small characters that you can kind of forget for a while, then there's a reference or small appearance by her somewhere, and you remember how great the character. I'd rather she have a few small roles every now and then rather than her be in the spotlight and possibly have the character ruined by plot arcs.

Well-known fact: Stromgarde and Gilneas left the Alliance partially because they wanted all of the Orcs to be executed.

Little known fact: Stromgarde wanted these executions to be performed by snu-snu. First, the large Stromgarde women. Then, the petite Stromgarde women. Then, the large Stromgarde women again. Then, the petite Stromgarde men. Then, the most beautiful Stromgarde Dwarven immigrants (who are also the largest) . . . .
