Forums: Index Warcraft lore What is wrong with Thrall?

He reappoints Trade Prince Gallywix as leader even though Gallywix is a despised traitor to the goblins who enslaved them and teamed up with pirates. All the goblins are shown as hating him and yet Thrall makes him leader. Copperblast (talk) 03:24, July 6, 2010 (UTC)

IMO it's because Gallywix hates being leader himself, and, as a strange form of punishment, making him leader is worse than throwing him in a jail cell somewhere. Saberd of The Shattered Sun 03:29, July 6, 2010 (UTC)

Gallywix never says he hates being a leader, infact he hates having his power questioned. A major reason he hates the player is that there were rumors the player was going to run against him in the next election and he knew no one would support him. Copperblast (talk) 03:31, July 6, 2010 (UTC)

Given the quotes... and the fact that Thrall is no longer in charge of the Horde, sounds like he welcomed them to the Horde leaving the goblin leader as the leader for now, and he even wasn't too sure with that decision, but what can he do.... The trade prince is the trade prince, he can't just give command of a cartel to some random goblin. It's not something he can decide on. User:Coobra/Sig4 03:40, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
Trade Princes are democratically elected as shown by the starting zone and Gallywix is hated by the goblins, a goblin in the escape pod even refers to him as a monster. Its also implied several goblins in the shipwreck and mines. Copperblast (talk) 03:45, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
Didn't know Thrall was a goblin... Like I said, nothing Thrall can do about it, now if the goblin people did decide to rise up and change leaders.... User:Coobra/Sig4 03:47, July 6, 2010 (UTC)

Lands of Mystery, page 75, clearly states "The goblins certainly don't elect their trade princes, nor are the positions hereditary; the trade princes killed, blackmailed and schemed their way to the top." I wonder why Blizzard changed it. I also wonder what happened to the other four now that their capital city allegedly exploded.--SWM2448 03:50, July 6, 2010 (UTC)

They probably had another way off the island, but given the port city was on the water, they had the best opportunity to escape, whereas the goblins in Undermine probably did not. User:Coobra/Sig4 03:55, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
Thrall should've killed him right there just as he did to his minions, it makes no sense for Thrall to appoint a hated despot to a position of leadership. Thrall should think about all the lives that were lost when Gallywix was Trade prince before. I think one the writers is a rabid Alliance fanboy or on a lot of drugs. Lands of Mystery is highly outdated and even Dark Factions has been wrong, goblins have a booming ka'jamite business.

What right does Thrall, someone at this point not in command of the Horde, to kill a leader of a goblin cartel.... Not to mention that's not his way. User:Coobra/Sig4 03:55, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
Gallywix left the cartel, Thrall helped kill all of Gallywix's mercenaries, and no one liked Gallywix, The goblins would be glad if he was dead. Copperblast (talk) 03:57, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
lol I love how this major lore argument is going on over unreleased content, I still think Blizz has plans for the Goblin Leader, the way that female trade prince thread has gone on the official forums, I think they are very curious about the players feelings on this subject. :) Pokeball Max Krist (talk contribs) 07:23, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
Maldy is going to make a surprise come back. User:Coobra/Sig4 14:25, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
Maldy is just a renamed Gallywix. It looks like Gallywix is what Blizzard is going with considering Gallywix is going to get a unique model. The Devs have failed massively. Copperblast (talk) 21:59, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
Ten-to-one, Gallywix is going to mess up at some point in the future. Then, Boss Mida is going to either throw him out on his tailbone, or "hire mercenaries" to kill him. And every other Horde leader will either outright support her actions or just look the other way.
