AFR #86 – The origins of Garrosh Hellscream, theory #172

I mostly play Alliance and only dabble on the Horde side, so until recently I had no idea who Garrosh Hellscream was.  Now I know.  For my fellow Allies, here are the essential facts: Garrosh Hellscream is a douchebag.  A douchebag with anger issues.  And, when Cataclysm comes, he’s apparently going to be taking over the Horde, decking out Orgrimmar in standard-issue angsty teen goth style, and destroying everything noble and proud about the Horde.  Yeah.

Think of those twerps in trade chat who think “anal” jokes are hilarious and who respond to any request for help or information with “OMGWTFN00B GO KIL URSELF NOW!!!1!”  Now imagine you found out that one of those guys was going to become president, and no, no one’s asking you and your vote doesn’t count.  That’s what Horde players may be  facing come Cataclysm and I feel for them.  There must be some explanation for why Garrosh Hellscream is the way he is– could this be it?

Oh, and vuvuzelas are implements of evil that must be cast back into the fiery chasm in which they were forged.  That is all.


  1. So true… so true.

    As a Horde player, I hate Garrosh Hellscream and Vuvuzelas!

    You just can’t watch football in peace anymore.

  2. Yes, for the Horde-impaired, Garrosh Hellscream is as big an arrogant, annoying douche as Varian Wrynn. If that gives you some perspective…

    • Very aptly put!

    • Varian does have a reason for being a douche (with that whole “being forced to fight in the arenas” thing). And he’s actually rather respectful to Saurfang when he’s retrieving his son’s corpse.

      (Don’t blame me, I voted for Abesik Kampfire)

      • HA! That explains everything!

        idk though… Varian kinda seems like the sort that’ll always be kind of a jerk. Then again, Thrall’s not all that mild mannered either (and Garrosh… forget about it!)… guess that’s why we get all this war stuff… everyone’s a jerk to everyone else… except for Jaina… but she’s another “situation” altogether!
