Thrall made a very brief appearance in the events in patch 5.3, showing up to help his old friend Vol’jin before heading off to Orgrimmar, presumably to confront Garrosh once and for all. Over on Youtube, Adriacraft has dug up the confrontation between old Warchief and new, with some unsurprisingly heated words thrown between the two of them. The video is after the break — but be warned, if you’ve been wanting to avoid patch 5.4 spoilers, clicking through would be a bad idea.
Orgrimmar is about to get wrecked, the Horde is in a state of political upheaval, the Alliance is on the brink of storming Stormwind’s gates and Garrosh seems to be unstoppable, which leaves many players with one question: Just where the heck is Thrall in all of this, anyway? After all, the former Warchief is in at least some small part responsible for the current state of affairs, given his insistence on plopping Garrosh in place as the new Warchief of the Horde. And really, that fact cannot be argued with — if Thrall had not appointed Garrosh as the new Warchief, none of the current events going on in Mists would have happened.
