Weapons Edit

Hi, I'm relatively new to Warcraft lore (been playing since Reign of Chaos), and only now am I finding out about hero classes and stuff like that. My main question is, does a Blademaster only use swords? It's just Grom Hellscream was a blademaster, yet he is famously knows for using the axe Gorehowl. So, does the title of Bladmaster mean having a mastery of all weapons, or just of swords?

Uhm... first line of the article says: "The Blademasters are an orc gladiator class who are known for masterfully wielding swords or other weapons on the field of battle." Hope this answers your question :) And even if they lore-wise only used swords, if they ever became a hero class in WoW, of course they could use various kinds of weapons like the other classes, too.

Oh dear god, I need my eyes tested!

Sorry for wasting your time, and thanks anyway :)

Thrall a Blade Master?Edit

Okay, I know Thrall is a trained veteren in gladiators. He knows how to use any weapon, ie a Blade. But does that make him an actual Blade Master in the Orcish Tradition? I don't think so. I believe he should be removed from the list. --Invin Dranoel14:48, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

I agree, while the rpg may state so, in an orcish sense he is a Shaman not a blademaster.--Gurluas (talk) 16:11, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

He is both things, it appears that there are two types of blademasters, the ones from the burning blade and the gladiators. Thrall and Grom are from the gladiators, while Samuro and others are of the burning blade. Benitoperezgaldos (talk) 16:55, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
