And they just went ahead and removed the last interesting and mildly shady character left for the Horde.
No more interesting stories and having fun, Gallywix is replaced by Gazlowe as the Trade Prince.
Can’t say i’m not disappointed. The current Horde leadership is turning out to be as bland and generic as to tag the faction as Red Alliance.
Also, its rather telling how eager Blizzard is to force their target plot and certain writers bias, when they write the sort of story that downright ignores and dimisses a rather important factor for the Goblin race such their different Cartels:
Gazlowe: A cartel ain’t a clan or a tribe, Thrall. Steamwheedle, Bilgewater… it don’t matter who supplies the cash–so long as the pay’s good.
One of the few things that differentiated the Bilgewater from the rest, is precisely the fact that Gallywix was the only one to realise that it was on their best interest to drop neutrality and join the Horde.
And now, in order to further a particular plot, they made Gazlowe directly benefit from it…while scrapping altogether the importance of Cartels in goblin society.
A damn shame really.
What diversity is left for the Horde, what flavour or noteworthy traits, if about every single one of their leaders is to be turned into the oddly ‘perfect’ and ‘goodie’ example?.
Not entirely disappointed, as Gazlowe has a long history with the faction. But still…he just seems much less interesting than Gallywix. Much more a generic ‘good guy’.
