^ yeah it really makes things easy when you decide to roll Druid.
I originally picked gnome warrior to one-up a buddy of mine back in high school. My first character ever was a Tauren warrior because it was the biggest so logic dictated that it had to be the best. And as a big dude playing offensive line on a footbaIl team, I just had to be the biggest character with a big axe. I only got it to like level 5 or 10 or something before all my buddies all decided to roll Alliance instead of Horde. My friend decided to be a smartass and make a damn gnome warrior with a pink handlebar mustache and spiky pink hair. I had to beat him and make something even more rediculous, and the only thing that could beat that pink handlebar mustache was a 2'10" warrior with pink ponytails. I created it as a joke but it's got 1,700 hours /played now so it kind of stuck.
So my primary motivation to pick gnome was to spite a friend and one-up his attempt to have the most ridiculous character possible. I guess this falls under the category of 'Models & Animations'.
I know humans are stronger warriors, and I wish they weren't. But I've got momentum going on now, I can't switch over to human at this point. I'm too attached to this character to change it after 15 years
