Shared Topics: Horde: Good or evil? and Favorite Profession

Welcome to another edition of Shared Topics with two juicy, juicy topics!

The first, from two weeks ago was suggested by Ringo Flinthammer of Flinthammer Hall who invited us to take a break from all the number talk and turn our attention to the story unfolding in Azeroth, more particularly to the Horde.

For years, fans of the Horde have described them as noble savages or, at worst, misunderstood people trying to make their way in a hostile world.

But that may have changed in the wake of the Cataclysm. The Forsaken have rolled across the northern lands of the Eastern Kingdoms, slaughtering all enemies in the Hillsbrad Foothills and seek to claim Gilneas for their own. The orcish war machine is rolling across Kalimdor, unleashing fire and devastation in Azshara and the Stonetalon Mountains. Horde NPCs even argue amongst themselves about the brutality of their methods.

Has the Horde changed? Is Blizzard merely clarifying the way they’ve always wanted to portray them? Or is this merely the start of a story about the soul of the Horde?

Giving this topic the attention it deserved required a good grasp on the lore, which is why I gave it an extra week. It was worth the wait as the responses were interesting and, to the lore n00b that I am, enlightening. Participating were:

TwilliK from Arcane Envoy

Aliera from The Violet Scribe

Saz from World of Saz

Hadrimda from Hadrimda’s Blog

As for this week’s Topic, suggested by Ama of Specced for Drama, well, it doesn’t really need an introduction…

What is your favorite profession and why?

Garona from PvE Rogues (Her site’s down at the moment, I’m hoping it’ll be back up soon)

And coming up on Blog Azeroth, so so many exciting Topics! Next week, we’ve got another Horde vs Alliance Topic. Azeroth, is the Horde on the road to conquering it? Show off your knowledge of Azerothian politics (and maybe teach me some) and share a link to your post in the thread at Blog Azeroth.
