I wonder if this is part of Blizz's big picture lore. Perhaps all the saronite everybody is wearing is pushing their tendencies toward aggression. Garrosh is covered in Naxx level plate, which could be made in saronite. I'm not saying that it's the reason he's an asshat, but perhaps that combined with his own thoughts and feelings about his father's legacy in the Horde helps push him to be more much more brazen in his feelings and tactics. By covering ourselves in the stuff, it slowly feeds into out doubts about each other's motives as we move with increasing fervor toward taking down the Lich King. Horde and Alliance are just short of all out war in Northrend, and we even participate in a blood sport to decide who gets to take on Arthas. A tournment to to select the best is one thing; death matches are another. Metzen had said that while we would be successful in defeating Arthas, we would leave a part of ourselves in the snow. Perhaps wearing using saronite while enduring the psychological attacks of the both the Lich King and Yogg will take its toll on us and pave the way for a more open hostilities between factions.

That was EXACTLY what I was thinking!

Makes me glad my main is a Clothie. I may have had a trinket that mentioned saronite...not sure. Of course I have been stomping around in towers made of the stuff.

Yeah, if you're a clothy, there's still a good chance that your weapons, and trinkets are made from Saronite. Several gems can be prospected from it and transmuted into the epic gems that you probably use in your sockets. Not to mention, there's no saying one way or the other that the crystals, shards, essences, and dusts that come from disenchanting saronite items completely strips all the evil off it. So there could be a possibility you're enchanted with badness....wait, I guess that could be a good thing if you interpret that right.
