Yeah, saying "Thrall cheated" is pretty common misconception held by those who watched the Warcraft movie but didn't look deeper into the lore of the ritual duel.Also, just going to point out:A lot of people in Legion believed (after seeing the Warcraft movie) that Thrall lost contact with the elements "because he cheated". That's not what happened. He lost his ability to control the elements due to his own doubts.Thrall set Garrosh up for failure. Garrosh made his own choices, but Thrall screwed him over, and he knows that Garrosh might have turned out differently if he had handled the situation better.
Hey the part about Thrall was to touch upon some popular community discussions/interpretation, I've modified the language to make it sound less factual :) I think it's still interesting to highlight, especially rewatching their WoD cinematic where their conversation is so sad and the music is mournful, not triumphant.
After rewatching the Thrall vs Garrosh cinematic I don’t see how one could think Thrall cheated. It was a classic exchange of blows, then a dialog about Thrall not being a Warrior and he quips about him being right, he is a Shaman and then Thrall ends it pretty much with a snap of his finger. If anything Garrosh just underestimated Thrall, like most seem to do.
You'd get a more coherent, nuanced plot out of a deep dive of a Nick Jr. show, there's literally nothing left to salvage here. I know you guys want those drama clicks, though.
People arguing about the "realities" of made up video game fiction.
Please show me the moment when it says that she doesn't remember anything? Uther remembers everything, even realizes everything he did, although the sword also cut off part of his soul. It's one creature, one soul, it's not 2 different characters.
I find it ironic that if Thrall didn't cheat in mak'gora with Garrosh by basically one-shotting him with magic, then neither did Sylvanas cheat by instantly killing Saurfang with magic as well. Honorable victory.
