    Today's Topic:

    Using Warcraft lore, who do you think would deserve to light the torch of the first ever Azeroth Olympics?
  2. shadowfury

    shadowfury Guest

    I think the character best to light the olympic torch is Thrall. He, in my opinion has shown what true determination and selflessness is. He brought people together (trolls,tauren etc) and that is something the olympics is about.
  3. Bobity66

    Bobity66 Guest

    I think that Cairne Bloodhoof Should be the first to light the torch of the first Azerith Olympics. due to being a fearless leader but also encourages peace.
  4. cardinall

    cardinall Guest

    The only real choice is Ragnaros. He is the Firelord after all.
  5. skywind

    skywind Guest

    Definitely Thrall.... for the same reasons as the other poster above :D And, he's perhaps one of the few horde leaders that could actually be welcomed in alliance lands. (Theramore, if no-where else).
  6. VividAriah

    VividAriah Guest

    Yep, Thrall. As mentioned earlier, he is a figure that promotes unity.
  7. Stetzer

    Stetzer Guest

    I disagree with Thrall. Yes, he is definitely a huge figure in World of Warcraft, but I feel that Garrosh Hellscream should deserve to carry the torch in honor of this father Grom Hellscream for sacrificing his all for the horde.
  8. Baindyn

    Baindyn Guest

    I think that Sylvanas is the best canidate to carry the torch because, first of all she died fighting the death knight arthas while trying to protect her home of quel'thalas and the sunwell, second after being raised as a banshee she led the sourge rebels against the sourge as the new forsaken, and all this time she has protected her people, although undead, against the might of the sourge and provented them from reaching further into the eastern kingdoms.
  9. Kinjiro

    Kinjiro Guest

    King Magni Bronzebeard because the dwarves are the reason gnomes even have a place to stay.
  10. Orgatyrant

    Orgatyrant Guest

    I would have to say the Prophet Velen. He not only resisted the lure of power from Sargeras, but also guided the remaining eredar across the cosmos escaping from kil'jaeden for thousands of years.

    He has always been an envoy of peace and harmony, and a guide to those who sought wisdom.
  11. Duranged

    Duranged Guest

    I would have to go with a character who has a certain level of neutrality between both factions, someone who the Alliance and the Horde have common ground with. But also a character who is not politically motivated or aloof, such as the Dragon Aspects or Medivh, someone who quite simply represents the strength and heart of Azeroth. So obviously this character would have a lot to live up to.

    Overall I would have to go with Malfurion Stormrage, he is the protector of the wildness and balance of Azeroth, and does not care for the squabbles between factions. And yes I realise he is currently MIA, but I would have to say he would make the best candidate.
  12. Slapjack

    Slapjack Guest

    The clear answer to the question presented here is Griftah.
    He has been constantly molested by the guards of the Sha'tar and they had even gone as far as exiling from Shatrath before his name was cleared!
    This man (or troll) has gone through MANY things to do what? Help us stay clear of Tikbalangs, keep us clean, and even prevented our souls from escaping!
    If anything Griftah, deserves each and every gold medal that can be won for his outstanding achievements.
    You may not know, it but he has impacted the lives of most people that play the World of Warcraft.
  13. Ssonic19

    Ssonic19 Guest

    My vote goes to Emperor Thaurissan (the original). After all, he has some experience playing with fire.
  14. Kazuko

    Kazuko Guest

    I say Anduin Wrynn should be given the right to light the torch since he is only a child and yet is king of stormwind in the absence of his missing father.
  15. Apitoxin

    Apitoxin Guest

    Thrall is definitely the best choice. Bringing together the weary and the broken to form a society wins.
  16. If A'dal could somehow light the torch, I think A'dal should be given the right to light it. A'dal is of course the most neutral person in the WoW universe at the moment.
  17. joz123

    joz123 Guest

    Definitely Hogger. He is a god among gods.
  18. oreobaby

    oreobaby Guest

    Illidan Stormrage should light the torch for the event. Since none of us are prepared for such a task.
  19. Zaiten

    Zaiten Guest

    Thrall because of his relationship with Jaina Proudmore. He does what he can for his people and would probably do anything to live peacefully.
  20. markroberts

    markroberts Guest

    I'm not to good on World of Warcraft lore, but lets start the ball rolling and say The Lich King Arthas, for no particular reason other than he's the guy in the expansion everyones getting so excited about :thumbsup:
  21. faervian

    faervian Guest

    Khadgar can be a good alternative to these names. He's polite enough to give a tour in shattrath with his minion to newbie Outlanders. And, closing the Dark Portal or lighting a torch, I don't see big difference.

    Rooflespoonz because he owns the magtherdons in ogrenarz.
  23. Evli

    Evli Guest

    As everyone else said Thrall, I would have to go with him too. So, Thrall.
  24. Zanzili

    Zanzili Guest

    A'dal , he's the most neutral thing between horde and alliance.
  25. Ivelbull

    Ivelbull Guest

    Thrall, because of his work to unite the orcs and make peace with the alliance.
  26. Happu

    Happu Guest

    I'll have to go with thrall aswell, he did after all unite races.
  27. Fojos

    Fojos Guest

    Thrall for the horde. Because like everyone else said, he brought the horde together, and he's for unity. If not Thrall, I'd go with Garrosh Hellscream (someone picked him before too, damnit) for what Grom Hellscream did.

    Tirion Fordring for the alliance. Come on, he's just badass. He sacrificed his whole life for saving an orc. ;o
  28. Celi

    Celi Guest

    Definitely Hogger, raiding him requires the best teamwork in whole Wow
  29. Kamahri

    Kamahri Guest

    Thrall, for the same reasons as the others, he is definitely the symbol of the peace for me.
  30. Morxxeal

    Morxxeal Guest

    Me too, I think Thrall is the only person would deserve the olympic torch.
  31. bandung

    bandung Guest

    This is so true. Hogger got my vote!
  32. Calziana

    Calziana Guest

    I hadn't set my mind 100% on someone before I read on, but now I definetly think that Thrall is the one who should be given this huge honour!
  33. celer

    celer Guest

    i'd have to say keeper remulos, the son of cenarius.

    He is a neutral person, being one of the most notable persons in the cenarion circle. The circle also has as one of their goals to unite the people, they train druids of both the alliance and horde.

    Besides, he's been on azaroth for much much longer then anyone else as far as i know.
  34. Rutix

    Rutix Guest

    Thrall because what he has done in the past shows his true determination and his leadership. like someone already said he brought trolls and stuff to eachother. My vote goes to thrall :D
  35. lorecow

    lorecow Guest

    It's simple really. Uther the Lightbringer. Not only is his name fitting, he also is/was a beacon of hope for humanity in a sense.
  36. ciabb64

    ciabb64 Guest

    Hmm I'd have to say its a tie between Uther the lightbringer, his name fits and everything. Or possibly Thrall for changing Orcs for the better.
  37. sethamun

    sethamun Guest

    I have to agree. The only real choice is Ragnaros, i mean... he is a living torch himself so who could do this job better than him? :)
  38. Nyaz

    Nyaz Guest

    Thrall here, Thrall there. I say we spice things up a bit and let Arthas / The Lich King do it, whilst declaring himself sovereign king of all that is, was and shall ever be.

    Bwahahaha...ha...ha...! Hm. Tough crowd.

    I suppose Ragnaros works too. He could -be- the freakin' fire!
  39. I think it should be Brann Bronzebeard one of the greatest explorers to run with the flame through all of Azeroth :D if he would come back :p Else it should be High Explorer Magellas since he is responsible to mapping out the world etc :D
  40. Vesi

    Vesi Guest

    Corki from nagrand!
  41. Phinor

    Phinor Guest

    Ah, so much gnome haters here. So I'm going to go ahead and say High Tinker Mekkatorque. Yep, he's the perfect candidate for the job! Leader of gnomes, the one we all foll.. err, actually no, most gnomes just hate him in his beggar clothes.

    So I'm going to nominate myself! Gnome warrior with years of experience in beating evil all around the world(s)!
  42. Toliris

    Toliris Guest

    It would have to be Thrall because of all he and his people have overcome and how the orcs were once enslaved for our entertainment they should be allowed the honour of lighting the torch
  43. khz88

    khz88 Guest

    i would have to say Prophet Velen for the same reason as Orgatyrant said
  44. Chaserx

    Chaserx Guest

    day three
  45. Mvucetic

    Mvucetic Guest

    A'dal definetly,as a most neutral person
  46. Chozei

    Chozei Guest

    Like many else I'm gonna go with Hogger. He has given as much joy and is undoubtedly the most dangerous being on Azeroth. He deserves this chance to prove his everlasting might.
  47. Maghica

    Maghica Guest

    Who's better to light up a torch than Onyxia herself, followed by her 'brood' and all those Onyxia juniors from her cave!

    That would be a showstopper.
  48. Suigeneris

    Suigeneris Guest

    Aman'Thul, should be bestowed the honor of lighting the Torch of the first Azeroth Olympics.

    He is the creator of Azeroth and therefore, the most worthy too start the games.
  49. boson

    boson Guest

    Thrall should start the fire because he is truly devoted to promoting peace and unity.
  50. Kualus

    Kualus Guest

    Tirion Fordring, even though he was a well-respected human, and one of the first five Knights of the Silver Hand, he defended an orc and got exiled. Tirion would be the excellent candidate to light the torch :D
