Which is one of the things they really should've addressed

You'd think Geyah would've raised him better

Well, my take on the subject was he was raised as a self-hating orc and then found being a proud warrior race guy who was the son of an epic hero with the ear of a war chief was much better.

I can't really say he's wrong there.

I do think Garrosh should have been the final WoD boss, though. No one else has half the personality.

It's still an entity that stands between all of the gods and beliefs and the souls that go to where the devoted of the specific beliefs goes. There shouldn't be anything standing between those souls or the afterlife they have.

...


Yyeeahh.. no.You're having death be some sort of entity. I'd rather it be nothing, just a state of being or something like that, with no being or entity having control over where all of the souls go.
Well, we all have our preferences. : )

Gotta say I'm with Kyn on this.

It doesn't make sense to me to have all the death gods connected or whatever.

To me it almost makes more sense to have them connected. At the very least, it's uniting in a beautiful, sort of poetic way. Without it, it lends itself to the question "who's right?" (to which the answer could be all, some, one, or none; just figured it should be said).

Again I ask: Is there any proof, one way or another?? Is there any In-Universe indication of any particular "afterlife"? I have yet to hear a satisfactory answer to that (if one exists; it would be very Blizzard to not have featured something like that (yet)).

There's nothing to suggest that all the death gods are connected, you're looking for evidence for something that appeals to you personally but has no suggested evidence ingame.

And yeah, lots of quests have lots of NPCs going to various kinds of afterlives.

Forest Troll zombie in EPL goes to "Green Fields"

Bridenbrad goes to the Light with the Naaru

Trolls live as Loa, Nelves as Whisps, etc...

All things have their origin in the Light and Void.

Things started with Light and Void, that doesn't make them the end-all be all -now-.

There is, in fact, evidence of several distinct afterlives.

There's the Old God hellscape, home to Arthas and eventually (presumably) Sylvanas. There's the various (yes, various) troll spirit realms, maintained by various loa of death (Quetz'lun, Bwonsamdi, Samedi, Mueh'zala, etc.) where the spirits of the dead go and from which they can be summoned. There's the Naaru's "paradise everlasting". There's the Orcish spirit realm. There's the Tauren spirit realm. There's Elune's domain (though my opinion on that is that this is the same as the Loa's spirit realms).

I'm sure there are more, but you get the idea.

I'm inclined to think the Loa should be representations of natural Azeroth forces, though.

So, really, everyone goes to Bwonsamdi's realm in the void unless they have a god which takes them elsewhere like the Light.
Baron Samedi (French: Baron Saturday, also written Baron Samdi, Bawon Samedi, or Bawon Sanmdi) Samedi is a Loa of the dead
