COME ON BLIZZARD WRITERS WHTA ARE YOU DOING?????
It could be that the CHARACTER is wrong, but the writers actually know what they’re doing.
Baine never really stopped being angry at Garrosh as far as I remember
This, imo. ^
I’m all for constructive criticism of Blizzard, but there’s been a metric ton of Blizzhate recently and for things I’m fairly certain they’re doing on purpose. Like Garrosh being in control of the Sha, for example.
It’s okay not to LIKE the way their characters are acting/thinking, but I don’t think they’re contradicting their own lore so much as the lore is just upsetting and stressful. And that’s okay!
I’m not even sure he’s talking about the duel specifically. The shit Hellscream did to the Tauren in Tides of War could be seen as betraying Cairne Bloodhoof
it could be??? but I don’t think they’re looking for the playerbase to read that much into it.
Remind me what he did to the tauren in specific in Tides of War? I don’t remember Garrosh doing much besides shouting “FUCK YOU BAINE/RUNETOTEM IS A PUSSY CY@” at them. It’s almost definitely a reference to Garrosh’s killing of Cairne Bloodhoof even though Cairne challenged HIM to mak’gora and it was Magatha’s betrayal, not Garrosh’s, that killed Cairne.
This lore fuckery combined with the Readiness nerf makes me regret reinstalling.
This is what I was thinking of when I said that:
“Garrosh Hellscream,” said Baine calmly, “I ride now for Mulgore with my braves. There are far fewer of them than when I rode out to answer the call of the warchief of the Horde. My loyalty to the Horde is deep, and you cannot gainsay me on that. But know this: I fight for the true Horde, not one that utilizes methods both unnecessary and shameful. There must never be another Theramore—not if you wish the aid of Baine Bloodhoof!”
What he takes umbrage at is a lot less tauren-specific than what I remember, but he does sound pretty upset at the whole thing.
