How to Oath?

Blog Azeroth Shared Topic: What vows would your character say, intend, or break, and to what allegiance? Would it be to class/race/specialization, deity, or ruler?  This is quite a challenging Blog Azeroth topic, however I know you are all up to it because you are amazing writers.

In my head, Karegina used to be a loyal member of the Horde.  She put her class before her faction and her faction before her.  The oath that she gave the Taunka in Dragonblight was one that she believed in wholeheartedly!

Lok’tar ogar! Victory or death – it is these words that bind me to the Horde. For they are the most sacred and fundamental of truths to any warrior of the Horde. I give my flesh and blood freely to the Warchief. I am the instrument of my Warchief’s desire. I am a weapon of my Warchief’s command. From this moment until the end of days I live and die – FOR THE HORDE!

This oath was something she truly believed in.  But only while she could believe in the Horde.  When Garrosh became the Warchief, her loyalty started to slip and as she watched the atrocities the Horde committed in his name, she broke her oath and sided with the Darkspear Rebellion.

Her personal oath to her Druid sisters and brothers is something she could never break.

By the Earthmother, By Elune, I swear by my skin and my blood to defend the land of Azeroth against any foes that face it.  May Nature find my heart pure enough to blend my essence with Mother Bear to defend my cubs in battle.  May she find my cunning keen enough to infuse me with the stealth of the Great Cat so I can ambush the enemy and defeat them in close quarters.  Let me become one with the Moonkin, so I may call upon the sun and moon to smite our enemies from afar.  And if it is needed, let me draw upon the strength of the Earth and the Trees to heal my compatriots.

These are Karegina’s oaths, her broken one and the one she lives by.  She won’t take another one.
