Where's Sylvanas in all this? Does she play any part in the assault, or is she sitting in Undercity the whole time? Is she actually following Garrosh's orders?


Sylvanas was at the initial meeting when Garrosh told the horde leaders they'd be destroying Theramore. She objected strongly to it because she felt that the alliance would turn their vengeance on the nearest target - the forsaken lands.

Because of that she sent a high ranking general to the actual battle of Theramore and stayed in the Undercity. Said high ranking general was killed when Garrosh's blackrock orc buddy firebombed the Razor Hill Inn.

In the book


Am I the only one who thinks lore like this should be in the game? Why do I need to buy a book to find out what I'm playing?


All the interesting lore most definitely SHOULD be in the game. There is no reason we should have to go buy a book to know what's going on, unless we want to. It shouldn't be mandatory in order to learn of events.

Though I find it funny how Jaina was ready to slaughter Varian and the alliance navy, just to kill the Horde navy. Then she abandons everyone on the Broken Shore, instead of teleporting Varian to the boat after he kills the Fel Reaver... you know, like she teleported everyone to her in Pit of Saron? Ring a bell? She's a poorly written character, and needs to die, or disappear, permanently. Every time she appears and opens her mouth, I wanna blow my brains out the back of my skull, she's so infuriating.

Okay, I'll summarize the book for you and anyone else who wants to know:

*********SPOILERS BELOW*********

***SERIOUSLY SPOILERS*****

*LAST CHANCE!*

In the book Garrosh amasses an army made mainly of tauren, trolls, blood elves, and forsaken as ground troops and orcs as elite/naval troops. He bosses the other horde leaders around by letting them know they're doing to destroy Theramore (which shocks Baine) and makes it very clear that he values orc lives more than the rest of the horde. This annoys Baine and Vol'jin but despite this they agree to Garrosh's plans because they don't have a choice. Meanwhile Garrosh has a new blackrock orc right hand man who is going around assassinating anyone who disagrees with Garrosh. This includes one of the herbalism trainers in org.

Meanwhile Kalecgos is searching for the focusing iris which has been stolen from the blue dragons in the Nexus.

So the horde goes and attacks Northwatch and destroy it easily because it's a tiny alliance encampment and Garrosh has a bunch of warlocks/shaman summon molten elementals, a huge taboo as that's how Ner'zhul destroyed outland. From this perch they wait. Baine and Vol'jin aren't sure why they're waiting but every time they try to meet up with the other horde representatives to discuss Garrosh, the blackrock orc dude appears and threatens them with treason.

Baine sends a warning to Jaina in the hopes that she can evacuate Theramore before the horde gets there. Jaina decides against it and sends the civilians away by boat but recruits the Kirin'tor and a ton of alliance generals (including Shandris Feathermoon) to help fight to save Theramore. Kalecgos decides to stay and help Jaina too because he has a super big crush on her.

After days of waiting without Garrosh explaining why, the horde marches on Theramore. Garrosh sends the trolls and tauren in first as fodder and they suffer the most casualties due to the alliance resistance. The alliance actually wins against Garrosh's initial ground assault and pushes the horde out.

While the horde is outside THeramore and the alliance is inside celebrating, Garrosh reveals that he has a secret weapon to Baine. This INFURIATES Baine because it means Garrosh sacrificed an enormous amount of horde warriors knowing he had this weapon he could have used all along.

Garrosh drops the bomb. The explosion is enough to rip holes into other dimensions and timelines, utterly destroying even the timelines of certain characters. Rhonin sacrifices himself and pushes Jaina through a portal so she survives.

BUT WAIT, IT DOESN'T END THERE!

Jaina is so angry she steals the focusing iris and runs away from Kalecgos. She goes to a beach and starts summoning an enormous tidal wave of water elementals so she can drown orgrimmar completely.

Varian amasses the alliance navy to form a blockade around the horde ships as Garrosh's next target is, of course, Ashenvale. Garrosh summons his new secret weapon, a bunch of kraken (yes the same kraken that you see in Vashjir, the old god krakens) and decimates the alliance navy.

Thrall runs up to Jaina and despite his neutrality when Garrosh destroyed Theramore, he basically goes, "THINK OF THE CHILDREN! DON'T DESTROY ORGRIMMAR!" over and over until Jaina finally relents. Instead of destroying org she destroys the horde navy. She and Kalec fly off to Dalaran and she's made head of the Kirin'tor.

Meanwhile a bunch of horde members angered by Garrosh's tactics (including a forsaken and blood elven general) meet at the Razor Hill Inn to discuss what happened. Garrosh's blackrock orc guy shows up and firebombs the inn, killing all the horde folk inside.

With the destruction of his navy and a large chunk of the horde soldiers killed during the ground assault on Theramore, Garrosh lets the horde know that even children are now being conscripted into the war. And that's where the book ends.
