I actually believe it's because the war was already going on at this point, because the developments in Azshara are fairly recent. Of course Night elves would say they are doing it for nature for justification. Everyone uses bogus high ideals to rally up the troops to inspire them. If the Night elves believe the safety of nature hinges on their victory, they're more likely to throw themselves over the walls of Orgrimmar as they do.
The orcs sought out Ashenvale because of a deep spite they already held for the Night elves.
12/04/2012 09:01 AMPosted by DotbotsAs for TB, it takes a long, long time to transport goods from TB to Org.
It does, but it is a better alternative than conquest if peace is one's goal. Garrosh had to import water because the goblins polluted their own. If water has to be imported because of necessity, so can crops. It takes awhile, figuratively speaking, to import crops from one side of the country to the other but we do it anyway. And I imagine this process could be expedited with the help of goblins who use refrigerators to keep goods cold if needed and use Zepplins to ferry goods over land faster.
As I said, this is mostly the fault of Thrall who did not look into these matters. He did not consider it, because he's not a good leader. He's a good shaman, but he was the only person at the time to lead the Orcs from internment to Kalimdor. Now his usefulness has been fulfilled and it's time to find a new leader, and unfortunately Garrosh does not seem to be the one either.
And of course, SOMEONE had to be handed the idiot/villain ball in order to get the full scale faction conflict rolling. It just happened to be the Horde. If everyone acted with clarity, it's unlikely war would still be going on. Unless of course they did make the Alliance screw with the Horde to spur it on, but then you'd just be giving them the villain ball, and etc.
