Ask Gauss

Here we are Sunday Morning. Always a great time for pancakes, maybe with some white chocolate chips in them, covered in some strawberry jam and of course layered in real maple syrup. I just made you hungry didn't I? It is all good you should make some, mine were pretty awesome. Anyways, got sidetracked. Sunday means Ask Gauss the post of the week where I answer questions sent to me throughout the week. Unsure home to send in your questions? Well as always it is the top right of the page or if you are too lazy to look there works just as well. So let's get into it then.

So the patch is right around the corner. Who is going to be the new Warchief of the Horde?

This is a very good question. If you asked me awhile ago I would have thought Nazgrim was a shoe in to take over as long as Thrall didn't come back and say. It's me what's all of your problems? Nazgrim though if you don't know is one of the bosses and appears to die during his encounter. Forever loyal to his warchief even when he knew it was the wrong thing.

Now I always thought the Warchief of the Horde needed to be a Orc. After all this is Warcraft. It started out as Orcs vs Humans. Now if they keep with this I don't see how Thrall doesn't come back or Saurfang takes over. Really there is no other high profile orcs that have the leadership abilities. Who haven't been killed ie Nazgrim and Saurfang the Younger, unless some how they make an Eitrigg stroyline make sense.

I honestly think after reading Shadows of the Horde that Vol'jin will be the leader. It makes sense from the point of the Alliance that a non Orc would lead out of respect for what happened. Also throughout the book they were talking about how races didn't matter and it was about family and home. This to me is foreshadowing the moment of being an Orc doesn't matter. So with all that in mind Vol'jin I believe has it locked up.

How goes healing?

I don't mind it really. It is a different style of play. Makes me angrier when people do stupid things because I often have to heal them through it, or be a hero and heal trash packs and bosses. I don't find it overly difficult to watch fight mechanics and health bars because as a raid leader for years I was already watching all that for everyone anyway. I am just now eliminating the middle and I am responsible for it.

Have you ever played Halo Reach?

I know this is a troll, but really?

There you have it questions answered for the week. Hope you all got something out of it. Enjoy what is left of your weekend, and if you are lucky your long weekend tomorrow!


  1. Guess we will have to see if you are correct!

  2. Still weird seeing you as a healer and not a massive warrior charging into the front lines leading everyone

  3. Think Vol'jin is a good bet but I think we may end up with Thrall
