  • He is one of the most developed character story-wise in the lore. Fantasy lore wise, Warcraft could be better with more correct time-line and events, plus more character development from other races.

  • "This land is rugged and beautiful, much like the place from which my people originally came." is not from the Shattering. It's from Warcraft 3. Thrall was comparing Kalimdor to what he had heard of Draenor while speaking to Cairne.

  • It's cringy to see that your favourite Warcraft/WoW char for 20 years is being shaped by these nerds.

  • It's so funny watching an adult getting so much into it like the guy in the middle, lol

    • How does that make sense because in fact you mentioned him so your own comment is hypocritical to your own words. Think before you comment next time.

  • "Both Ragnaros and Thrall have always been voiced by Chris Metzen" Fresh-faced Blizzard employee: "Whats that noise in the recording studio?" Blizzard vet: "Oh don't worry, that's just Chris talking to himself again."

  • Funny how Thrall was Garrosh’s father figure even though technically Garrosh should be much older than him.

    Alexander AAlexander A11 dagar sedan
    • yeah but being older doesn't always translate to being more mature/knowing or having more experience

    • ​@Minty Coffee Are you one of those smooth brains who think opinions aren't allowed to be criticized? You're open to your opinion, but that doesn't make it FACT. You don't get it, sorry you don't. Some of us do, and like it.

    • @rod james It's the community who wrote those reviews. It's the community who ruined the game back in 2018, It's the community who mass refunded the game and it's the community who were defending Cyberfuck

    • @ALMAS game gets the worst reviews ever. Must be the community

      rod jamesrod james11 dagar sedan
    • @ALMAS The community has done nothing. Stop shifting corporate blame onto consumers, shill.

      Minty CoffeeMinty Coffee11 dagar sedan
    • @ALMAS after what Blizz did to this game, they deserve everything the community has said and more. Oh, and nice way to treat your customer base. Basically lie to them for months about what you're doing, deliver something that has less in it than what came out almost 20 years ago, and then have gormless people like you defend them for their own failings.

      korrdekorrde11 dagar sedan
