I find myself between a rock and a hard place. You see, I have been playing a human paladin for a long time. With the coming expansion, Cataclysm, new race/class combinations will be introduced, Tauren paladins in particular. I'm stuck on whether I should stay Alliance or make the switch to Horde. The things that have been pulling me to staying alliance is the new race, the worgen (Worgen Warrior Go!), and the new lore for the dwarves with things like the council of three hammers. There are a bunch of little lore things, but for now I won't go into them. The thing that is pulling me towards Horde is the new big faction leader, Garrosh Hellscream, who I think most of us can agree is better than Varian Wrynn and significantly less whiny. Also, all of the new horde storylines seem very exciting, with the forsaken/valkyr stuff and Garrosh punching dragons with his bare hands. Also, goblin shaman is calling to me. Also, the Alliance on my server is more laid back, with the excuse of one very big endgame guild. Any advice or suggestions are appreciated, and I hope this does not turn into a Horde vs. Alliance flame war that gets too out of hand.
To all my fellow WoW players
I played alliance for years. Then when I found out my new boyfriend played horde I switched. It never felt the same! But that might have been because I left my old realm too. I think you should try horde, there's no harm in giving it a shot surely? If you don't like it you can continue with your human paladin and then create your worgen in a couple of weeks.
I agree with the people saying at least make a Horde character to experience the other side of things. It is quite significantly different.
As for Wrynn I'll agree that he seems to be simply pissed off at the world and wants to take it out on the Horde. From a lore perspective this is understandable, what with being forced to be a gladiator and all, but it does make him very unlikable. On the other side you have Garrosh who is from the old school Horde mentality of crush and destroy but in an honorable way. Blizzard has basically put these two hot heads in charge simply as a reason for the Alliance and Horde to go at one another. Good a reason as any I suppose.
As for my personal answer I have been a Horde player since the game came out. If it weren't for the Worgen being placed on the Alliance side I would probably have never really played an Alliance character. However, that's what I'll be maining now.
Garrosh is a buster hope blizz kills him off quickly as he is retarded, in fact I hope the trolls kill him and take over org with the goblins (they both live in slums in org now) and the troll starting quests do have Vol'Jin pretty mad with him and promising to kill him
" @plop1920 said:I'm starting to come around to him. After playing through Stonetalon Mountains, you see that he actually does have a heart buried somewhere inside. He still no Thrall though, but who is?" I think a lot of horde players hate Garrosh, hes a dick ""
I rolled Alliance paladin back in Vanilla WoW. Re-rolled Horde after BC released but stayed with pallies. Played BElf paladins until Trial of the Crusader. Around that time, I had so many problems with D/Cs in Dalaran that my fist went through my computer screen and ended my WoW career. I'm happier now not playing the game than I ever was as Horde or Alliance!
