I copied the conversation between Lor'themar and Garrosh while doing my quests yesterday and I thought it was worth discussing/sharing in case anybody missed it. What I also found interesting was what Lor'themar and Garrosh say when you click on them. I'll include both below.
Lor’themar Theron says: You gave us no warning about the mogu, Warchief. These statues came to life!
Garrosh Hellscream says: Was I wrong to assume your Blood Elves could handle themselves?
Lor’themar Theron says: We could have, had we been given any warning. You threw my people to the wolves.
Garrosh Hellscream says: Your weakness is not my failing, Regent. My Horde has room only for those strong enough to stand within it.
Lor’themar Theron says: Do not question my loyalty, Warchief. We came across an ocean to fight for you.
Garrosh Hellscream says: Yes, and with your help, we will pry the secrets from this land. For the glory of the Horde!
Lor’themar Theron says: Take care, Garrosh. You would destroy the Horde to create your perfect future.
What Lor'themar says when clicked on:
There is a difference between testing one’s strength and blindly walking into harm’s way. Garrosh sent us to do the latter, and this I cannot accept.
Has our Loyalty not been tested and proven, time and again? All I hear from our Warchief’s mouth are falsehoods and excuses.
Garrosh spouts on about honor and strength, but in truth our leader sees only two outcomes - either fight and survive, or be defeated and forgotten.
I brought my people here at Garrosh’s request. Little did I realize we were to be sacrificed like pawns in a game.
What Garrosh says when clicked on:
I have no use for cowards in my army. Lately, I have been questioning the blood elves’ courage, and loyalty.
Here on Pandaria, I see a land that the Horde deserves. We will take it for our own, and if anyone stands in our way, mogu or Alliance, we will raze them to the ground.
I suppose I understand just why it is Lor'themar goes to negotiate with Varian, now, but I am glad that Jaina messes that up. I didn't see any motivation for the Blood Elves to join with the Alliance prior to this stunt, but now it makes sense.
For anyone with characters invested in this particular dig/scene, has this altered your character's view of the Horde or Warchief? I personally have my mage invested in this and I am curious about what other people think about this massacre and Lor'themar's response to it. For me, I was pleased to see Lor'themar pissed off and even more pleased to see what he had to say about Garrosh. I always preferred Rommath to Lor'themar, but now I respect the Regent Lord a lot more.
