Garrosh Hellscream Cutscene in Sanctum of Domination

Recommended Posts

Garrosh returns in Patch 9.1 and here's the cutscene that plays in the new Sanctum of Domination raid. This post contains spoilers.

The former Warchief of the Horde makes a brief appearance in Sanctum of Domination during the Soulrender Dormazain encounter, but instead of repenting for his sins, he would proudly repeat every choice he made, which eventually turns him into dust.

What a waste.

Garrosh was prominent in Revendreth marketing, but we didn't see him there at all for basically no reason. Now he 'shows up' in a single raid boss and literally turns to dust after. Guess I'm never seeing my favourite character ever again.

Absolute Chad. This is the greatest story moment in years and it gets such a poor quality cutscene, though, which is terribly sad.

The voice actor deserves a raise.

The actual movie though...I'm pretty sure that was the generic "talking" animation, and all they did was a 3 part zoom in on the character model as he was talking.    Then the animation for the jump...ughhh..

... That's a choice of story writing... He's too chaotic to even repent, so we'll have him a "warrior's death" even in the after life, then just dust him and move on. I would have preferred they never even brought him up. Just leave him lost like COUNTLESS other heroes and villains.

It's about as well done as Arthas has been, despite the soul splitting of a morne blade being constantly referenced as critical and him getting thrown into the maw never to be seen or even referenced again.

His voice actor should be fine, he's already voicing several characters in game. It's in game cinematic, so it's not going to looks as good, still they could have done something more with Garrosh. At least he remained true to himself, even if that meant being orc supremacist.

I'm glad we saw him one last time going out in his typical badass way.

I'm sad this happened in one of the lowest quality cutscenes ever.

At least this one is mildly amusing and consistent with the character. It wasn't that he was terrible as a villain. He was a reasonably consistent horrible racist person who would have worked fine as a stock evil villain, if only they had admitted that was what he was and not ruined so much of the levelling experience by having Horde players being forced to serve as henchmen to him and Alliance players having quests about boring and useless characters and losing for the sake of a story the devs kept denying was about a villain.

But that's kind of ok right? I mean at some point we HAVE to let some characters die. It's bad enough half the roster are in some form of "we can get them back if we want" status, from Illidan to Arthas, probably Sylvanas as well. I never liked Garrosh post-BC (I really liked him there) and flat out hated him in MoP, but damn that was a fitting end if you ask me.

You see that's all 100% true, and yet it was still 10x, or 120398218931x the cutscene that that abomination we got at the end was. It's really not about production quality or involved story, it's just character moments. Garrosh was a prick and he remained that to the fucking end. That's writing I can respect. Not this god damned everyone isn't really evil, "no hear us out, we just made up something that actually happened 10 years ago, honest" absolutely horseshit. If Sylvnas just said "Whelp, that's ok with me cos I'm on top and most of existence will also serve me, I can handle serving the big guy NP" and remained her evil, self-serving self I could 100% respect that. Or even if she went for the "crap, now I gotta remove this giant dude after he remakes reality so I can be on top" would be fine. But no. A magic word was said and Batman broke free of his bad ways.

It's even sadder when you think that the reason this cinematic was lower quality/had less budget put into it is that godddamn abomination in Oribos.... Yes I'm bitter. They managed to make me bitter about a game. SIGH.

But that's exactly the reason why I like the Garrosh ending. Because it IS an ending. Arthas is doomed to be dragged back at some point, and his legacy potentially shat on (and Illidan too). Garrosh should have been done after SoO, the trial was already too much, the escape was nonsense and then WoD.... Better to go out with his character (aka a giant asshole supremacist) intact than some future nonsense.

that's your own fault for not having a pre-approved favorite character as allowed by blizzard. The story isn't for you unless you like thrall, baine, jaina, anduin, or slyvanas.

      Blizzard President J. Allen Brack sent an internal email to Blizzard employees, addressing the allegations from this week's lawsuit.
      The president called them "extremely troubling" and said that he'd be "meeting with many of you to answer questions and discuss how we can move forward", according to Bloomberg's Jason Schreier.
      Placeholder for tweet 1418512291218264065 Here's a full transcript of the mail (courtesy of Jason Schreier).
      J. Allen Brack
      Hello Blizzard - 
      I personally have a lot of emotions coming out of yesterday, and I know you do, too. The allegations and the hurt of the current and former employees are extremely troubling.
      I know many of you would like to receive more clarity. While I can't comment on the specifics of the case as it's an open investigation, what I can say is that the behavior detailed in the allegations is completely unacceptable.
      It goes - without saying - it is completely unacceptable for anyone in the company to face discrimination or harassment. It goes - without saying - that everyone should feel safe working here, whether we are on campus, at BlizzCon, or working from home. It goes - without saying - it takes courage to come forward, and all claims brought to the company are investigated by internal and (when needed) external investigators. We take these claims very seriously. Claims made without fear of retaliation, and many times, I attend to them personally, along with our other leaders. Stepping back - when I talked with Bobby about taking this job, one of the first things I mentioned was a revered saint of the Brack household - Gloria Steinem. Growing up, the value of women as equals, understanding the work that had been done for equal treatment, and the fact that there was still much to do, were common themes. This is just one of the reasons why the fight for equality is incredibly important to me. People with different backgrounds, views, and experiences are essential for Blizzard, our teams, and our player community. I disdain "bro culture," and have spent my career fighting against it.
      Iterating on our culture with the same intensity that we bring to our games is imperative, with our values acting as our north star. This is some of the most important work we do, both as professionals and human beings.
      A company is more than a legal construct that exists as a piece of paper in a filing cabinet in Delaware. The people that work at the company make it what it is, through their actions and creations. Each of us plays a role in maintaining a place of safety for one other. And it is also up to each of us to continue to craft the Blizzard we want - and commit to doing our part in keeping Blizzard great but always aspiring for more.
      The leadership team and I will be meeting with many of you to answer questions and discuss how we can move forward. In the meantime, I wanted to know that you can talk to any man ager, any HR partner, any member of the legal team, or to any one on the executive team [including, Hey J]. If you feel more comfortable by talking to someone outside of Blizzard, or prefer to be anonymous, you can contact the Way2Play Integrity Line (CENSORED).
      I feel angry, sad, and a host of other emotions, but I also feel grateful to work alongside a set of leaders and thousands of employees who join me in their commitment to continuous improvement.
      Thank you Blizzard.

      Domination Socket Helper is an addon that prevents you from replacing/destroying Shards of Domination in Patch 9.1.
      Shards of Domination should always be extracted using Soulfire Chisel. However, if you decide to replace them, they will be destroyed in the process, which is where Domination Socket Helper comes in handy.
       What Does the Addon Do?
      Prevents you from replacing a Domination Shard and adds a button next to the socket which safely removes the shard.

      Destroying the item or selling it to a vendor is also blocked.

      I will add more functionality when I have time. (Hopefully, a window that lets you add shards without dragging them from your bags)
      You can download Domination Socket Helper here.

      It's been a big few days for the Race to World First, as the EU re-clear meant an actually pretty tense race for World 3rd, as Pieces and BDGG went at it trying to see who can defeat Sylvanas first and we got 5 guilds past the Banshee today!
      While the top 2 has been determined for a while now, that doesn't mean the race is over, and we had yet another EU vs. US face-off on our hands! We actually had 8 guilds progressing on the final boss of the Sanctum today, but only BDGG, Pieces and Method were actually close to a kill. After a lengthy re-clear, both Pieces and Method were back progressing on the boss, and Pieces were doing well, managing to get under 50% in 134 pulls, and then after a few wipes, this happened:

      Yep, that's right. 0.16%. THE closest any guild has come to defeating Sylvanas... without actually defeating her. It took Pieces over an hour to recover from that close of a call, but they did manage to focus up and get that extra tiny fraction of HP down, claiming and defending their previous World 3rd!

      BDGG were the biggest  movers in this tier, as they caught up to Pieces quite quickly and gained 5 spots on the world stage since Nathria, earning their World 4th!

      And finally, we got our 5th place guild today, as Method also improved from their Nathria performance, climbing 2 spots!

      We still have plenty of guilds still progressing on Sylvanas, 6 to be exact, 5 spots in the top 10, and the Asia first yet to be crowned! And as a final treat, here's Complexity-Limit's multi-PoV World 2nd video:

      The state of California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing has filed a lawsuit against Activision Blizzard.
      As initially reported by Bloomberg Law, the lawsuit comes after a 2-year investigation and claims, among other things, that the company fosters a "frat boy" culture where female employees are subjected to constant sexual harassment, unequal pay, and retaliation, with cube crawls in which male employees "drink copious amounts of alcohol as they crawl their way through various cubicles in the office and often engage in inappropriate behavior toward female employees". It also claims Activision Blizzard's leadership has not addressed any of the listed issues nor prevented them in the workplace.
      The WoW team was also talked about specifically: "Female employees working for the World of Warcraft team noted that male employees and supervisors would hit on them, make derogatory comments about rape, and otherwise engage in demeaning behavior, the agency alleges." Former WoW Senior Creative Director Alex Afrasiabi and Blizzard President J. Allen Brack are mentioned in the suit as well, and Afrasiabi's inappropriate behavior was allegedly well known and not handled well by Brack. Afrasiabi did quietly leave the company in 2020, however. Many Blizzard employees have come out about their experiences at the company, and you can read many of them on the WoW reddit here.
      The lawsuit asks for an injunction to force Activision Blizzard to comply with workplace protections, deliver unpaid wages, pay adjustments, back pay, lost wages and benefits for female employees.
      A spokesperson for Activision Blizzard sent a response to IGN, claiming the suit includes "distorted, and in many cases false, descriptions of Blizzard’s past" and that "The picture the DFEH paints is not the Blizzard workplace of today. Over the past several years and continuing since the initial investigation started, we’ve made significant changes to address company culture and reflect more diversity within our leadership teams." There's more to the response which you can read at the end of the article here.
      Here's a link to the full lawsuit, which you should definitely take a look at.
