Now that it is locked, I request the Faction Thread II be moved to the Halls of Lordaeron. For posterity.

And because I need more of my old posts there, to keep my evil lair of secret posts vibrant and functioning.

To be fair, the Genn from the Novels was a pampered arsewipe of a man. Nothing to desire.

While I don't like the Worgen/Gilneas thing, overall, Genn of Cata-onwards is a better character, it's just a shame they don't use him more. (But Baine is still the worst case of not using characters properly in-game....)
Admittedly, I like Cata Genn as well. A lot of people say he's boring or neutered, but I've never seen it that way. Hell, his character summary on the main Worgen race page makes him out to be both a very interesting character and serious missed potential.

Quote:
Time and again, King Genn Greymane has been forced to make difficult decisions to sustain Gilneass well-being and autonomy. Following the Second War, he ordered the construction of the seemingly impenetrable Greymane Wall to protect his people from outside threats, effectively closing off the nation from the world and its petty conflicts. For years the wall did as intended, but when the worgen curse spread into Gilneas, the enormous barrier began to resemble the gateway to a prison rather than a sanctuary. Now, with Forsaken in nearby Silverpine Forest and the worgen curse poised to destroy everything that Genn and his forebears had labored to build, Gilneass proud king must do everything in his power to save his kingdom. Due to his anger over the dire situation, however, Genns most arduous trial ahead might be subduing his own fury before it consumes him entirely.
When you think about it the character actually hasn't changed that dramatically, he was just given more dimensions and served a slice of humble pie. The problem isn't that they made him too soft, it's just that they haven't done anything noteworthy for him after his sympathetic pov in the Gilneas starting zone. But really, think of all the stuff Jaina has said and done in MoP, that would actually be very in-character if Genn had done all of that as well.

Ha ha! Thisalee Crow is an Allance-only follower. In your face, Horde!

The Alliance's three rules on faction conflict:
1) You can't win.
2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.

Considering that the Horde players get a tauren druid, I wonder why any Horde player would be bothered by this.

Because Thisalee is more memorable than Choluna. The only reason I recognized her is that her name is very similar to the city name Cholula.

I doubt many Horde players of the get-angry kind want filthy Alliance as followers.
