Yeh Zaela would be the only acceptable orcish female to take the mantle of Warchief for me too.

She has that mix of inexperience and eagerness which when combined with the title of Warcheif could make for interesting stories.

What a great idea, tell me more.

Well if I may I will make a tiny suggestion of making the entire Orgrimmar arena into a plague factory, and the entire arena floor should be a giant plague container. This plague will be then shipped to Bilgewater Harbor to be fired from the giant cannon at all of the Alliance capitals en masse.

I used to be really against wearing my hair in a ponytail since I've got gigantic Obama ears, but I recently grew some badass sideburns and now it looks pretty good.


Varian needs some sideburns. King Varian Asimov, if you will.

Here is the thing: her main characteristic is that she is female.

She exemplifies having a bland archetype shoehorned into an important role for little reason, instead of characters doing things and earning their role in the story.

Warcraft III's characters were a little bland, but we as the player did things with them and saw them do things. Saurfang became popular because of bugs that let him deal insane amounts of damage and fight silithid for long periods of time.

Varian and Garrosh are the opposite. Says Blizzard: "We need warmonger leader guys that are still likable. Poof here they are. YOU WILL LIKE THEM. By the way, they are the leaders. Deal. Retroactive and redundant revelations of character development will follow."

I can't think of anyone short of Zaela (who, as it stands, is fleshed out just slightly enough to be considered more than a footnote) with the credentials right now.

We're talking leader of the Horde here. Not just faction leader, but the faction leader. Shoving some nobody in the position (and compared to the other Warchief candidates (Thrall, Vol'jin, etc.), that's exactly what Zaela/Gorgonna et al are) is a little dubious.

This makes me feel like that there is a shortage of good Orc characters in general, not just female ones...

Sylvanas, Queen Azshara(Warcraft), Queen Victoria, Margret Thatcher and Hatsheput. Do I need to name more?

Well I do agree that Zaela and Gorgonna are major Characters in certain zones do like what insane guy of doom said that Zaela might be more fresh and a little well known to players since the Twilight highlands is the 84-85 end zone of Cataclysm. Do like what I said, I really liked Garrosh but I'm worried that Zaela has taken interest in him and might turn out like him and getting deposed.

But I'm totally in favor of having Vol'jin or someone else as Warchief candidates do I think warchief position is Orc's only I have found Eitrigg a good candidate but everyone said he's too old and good for advisor. And the only comparable would be Zaela in Gorgonna in my mind.
