Some insights into how the character was created:
Orgrim’s likeness comes from the masterminds at Industrial Light and Magic, who took concept art from Blizzard Entertainment—creators of the massive World of Warcraft videogame franchise on which Jones’ film is based—and merged it with photographs and scans of Kazinsky to create the orc.
Is this what you'd expect Orgrim to look like? Warcraft is live in theaters June 10, 2016.

6.2 Legendary Ring Concerns, Warcraft at Hellfest
2015/05/10 at 5:59 PM
A lengthy forum post was made over the weekend addressing a few of the concerns surrounding the 6.2 legendary rings:
Thorasus, the Stone Heart of Draenor
Nithramus, the All-Seer
Sanctus, Sigil of the Unbroken
Etheralus, the Eternal Reward
Maalus, the Blood Drinker
The issues addressed were:
Why the rings have a raid-wide effect.
Concerns that the rings will be used mechanically on cooldown.
Concerns that another player controls your legendary proc, as one player activates the proc for everyone with the ring.
Concerns that the ring effects are weaker for some specs than others.
Hellfire Citadel is tuned around not having the legendary ring.
