Scythegore Arm: a union of Blackrock and Shattered Hand clan members that specialize in the use of exceptionally massive weapons from worg-back, collapsing the supports of buildings and crushing the inhabitants within them. They were particularly infamous for striking at clans that dared question the Horde's leadership.

With the appearance of the Iron Horde, the Scythegore Arm has taken up the grisly practice of running ahead of the rest of the Horde's massive siege weaponry and dousing enemy encampments in oil,while stripping away fortifications with their enormous blades, ensuring their foes burn as the volleys of artillery begin.

Rageroar should be a new Orcish clan that some Orcs who didn't know what their clan lineage was joined.

That'd fit. Orcs grasping for a cultural identity create a toxic one.

I don't remember anything about Rageroar other than they made a Worgen cry.

It's one thing to have problems and voice your concerns, but when you endlessly bitch day in and day out about the same tired old shit, it honestly makes me wonder why you are even here. Generally when somebody doesn't like something, they stop caring about it.

And on that note, SoL is a forum I no longer enjoy. So, I'm done here. And I genuinely think the people who have absolutely nothing at all positive to say about the game and, the people whose posts are composed entirely of whining, really consider leaving (or at least sticking to non-WoW sections). Because if you truly get no enjoyment out of WoW, then why are you here?

With that said, goodbye.

Upon coming of age each orc, male or female, is tasked with taming a wild chimera - a deadly affair that dooms most who attempt it. Those who succeed bond with their chimera for life with a fierceness that rivals the foulest beasts on Draenor, and a melding of spirits which allows them to fly as one. Those who fail and survive, or refuse entirely, are cursed to live out their days among the gron'har - a lower caste of the Blandwind, spat upon and forced to tend to daily operations amongst the camp. The Bladewind themselves are ferociously independent and free spirited, longing to spend a life soaring and fighting on the harsh razorwinds of their homeland, and it's said that their shaman harbor a particular affinity to spirits of the air.

In the original history, the Bladewind were the progenitors of the Dragonmaw. It it here that Warlord Zaela, ever loyal to Garrosh, traces her ancestry. She now works to bring the Bladewind into the Iron Horde, to rain death from the skies upon mighty armored chimera, and to rebuild her forces lost during the Siege of Orgrimmar.

Perhaps Pre-Outland Draenic Chimaera had one head and the key trait separating them from dragons are the lack of forelimbs?

Does anyone remember the Flowerpicker Clan?

I don't imagine we'll see them in WoD, but it's an amusing thought. I put my own speculation on the matter in another thread here on SoL.

Killsorrow Clan - a minor clan from Nagrand that mostly keeps close to its fortified keep, letting out into the larger world only the devious deathsworn, masterful huntsman and rogues, who are known for their ability to blend with the shadows and unfurl on their unsuspecting foes in a surprise attack, even if the price for such a surprise is to die in the blaze of glory. Thus, any kind of kill is a great event for the clan - a triumph of their ways, but also a sorrowful loss, signified by an all-clan mourning and a funeral feast.

The clan is deeply spiritual and doesn't have a definite chieftain, but is instead ruled by the Council of Crones - ancient shamanists masterful in both the tribal witchcraft and the history of the clans. It is the Crones who, after connecting with the ancestors, say out the names of the new destined deathsworn, while tutoring the rest of the clansmen in deadspeaking and other aspects of spiritual shamanism.

The Crones of Killsorrow were deeply interested in the findings of Ner'zhul and Gul'dan regarding the mysterious ancestors the two supposedly connected with. The clan is currently keeping contact with Gul'dan, wondering about the measure of power of an ancestor that Ner'zhul's pupil is eager to call a new "master".

There's been a lot of discussion about the lack of representation of female characters in Warlords of Draenor.
How do they know that?

(Let's be honest, unless I am horribly mistaken, so far we have more important female characters than we've ever had in an expansion.)

Edit: I agree with the message, though.

Zaela, Yrel, Draka, maybe Garona and maybe Jaina? So... y'know I think you're right depending on how you count a character as major.

Vanilla didn't have anyone in particular... nor did TBC aside from Liadrin (and Geyah I guess?), Wotlk... Jaina and Sylvanas mostly, though we did see some cool faces along the way, such as Gorgonna and that Worgen-hunter lady*. Cata... we saw Zaela and Garona briefly, plus that one Forsaken Ambassador. There's Sylvanas and Lorna, though neither showed up much past Silverpine... all the naga leaders in Vasjh'ir, Tyrande...Ysera/Alexstraza... oh and that fire druid lady whose name escapes me.

MoP though... I think there were some ladies among the shadowpan? I dunno, never played it. Can someone else fill this bit in?


*looking back on that chain now it seems weird that it went the way it did and we ended up with Worgen, perhaps it would've been more natural for Gilneas to join if we'd gotten a few Worgen there in Grizzly Hills that weren't loyal to arugal or the scourge, or were freed when we double-killed his shade?

Yeah, we had a few women in the Shado-Pan, but IIRC, only one of them was actually relevant during the questing, and she died in the second Townlong hub.

Anyways, my point was that it seems like whoever wrote that article just took one of BlizzCon's questions as that statement's basis without actually doing their homework and comparing.

Leaving that aside, I wouldn't mind even more female characters.

Taoshi was an important member. Also second most seen after Taran Zhu I think. In fact she felt like Taran's right hand woman.

In fact Shado-Pan as a whole had a lot of female members. Not one or two, but quite a few. Yalia, Fei Li the Firecracker, Chao the Voice etc. Master Snowdrift's two best students are girls.

To be fair they did a good job with the pandaren female model.

They hit that mark they missed with the female worgen.

Lightning Blade Clan

Originally a melee-oriented branch of the hunting focused Thunderlord Clan, the Lightning Blade split away several decades ago after two siblings competed for the position of chieftain.

Their battles and contests repeatedly ended in draws, the last challenge, a race to the top of one of the narrow Bladelike mountain spires near the clan's home, ended in a draw as both siblings reached it simultaneously and were struck by lightning the moment they reached the top.

This was taken as a sign by the spirits that the two need not compete, and the clan shaman decreed that the Thunderlords should allow the younger sibling and her Lightningblade warriors to go their separate way and become their own clan.

The two clans, who had great respect for each other, developed as seasonal allies, coming together during the stormy seasons for shamanistic rituals involving lightning striking at the area's mountain spires, and occasionally uniting against the nearby Ogres and Gronn.

The Lightningblade's shaman are adept at imbuing their weapons with the power of the elements, in a young warriors coming of age ceremony they must place their weapon atop a spire during a storm and then retrieve it.

These weapons then carry a portion of the storms strength forevermore and make the clan truly fearsome in battle.
