After the funeral, that part was still kind of left up in the air. Though it definitely seems Blizz is implying that Thrall is the Warchief again. Not really. Saurfang was still in support of the idea of a Warchief. He admitted this when he was asked what kind of Warchief he would be, instead he responded saying that they deserved someone better than him. Warchief perks!
So it is now decided that the horde will not have a warchief anymore but a council. Do you guys think this is a good idea for the story not having a single strong leader for the horde or will it be better with more voices to lead us forward? They have agreed to the armistice. This bitter war is finally over. Baine: At last we can begin to heal our wounded Earth Mother… and the wounded Horde as well.
Warchief , or War Chief , was a title used by the leader of the modern Horde. The title has also been used by leaders of the Horde's offshoots and previous incarnations—the Old Horde , the Horde of Draenor , the Fel Horde , the Dark Horde , and the Iron Horde , as well as the film universe 's Horde. During the war with the draenei before the opening of the Dark Portal , Gul'dan envisioned two groups of leaders for the orcs when he united them into the Horde: the Shadow Council who shared his vision, and the publicly elected Warchief to be its puppet. The Warchief became the title of the Horde's supreme leader, though their duties no longer included simply war. The position was ultimately retired following the Fourth War , after the tenure of Sylvanas Windrunner was riddled with controversy in the wake of warchiefs such as Garrosh Hellscream.
