I've been trying to decide what race I'm going to play as for classic first. If I go alliance it'll be human and undead if I choose horde. What are you all thinking?

I'm 99% sure I'll be playing as a Tauren Druid when Classic comes out instead of Night Elf, basically because I enjoy the lore of the Taurens more. I do enjoy the fact that I could have pally healers with me in PvP as a Night Elf but I just enjoy the look of Tauren Druid forms much much more.

So basically my choice is only because of cosmetic and story reasons, nothing groundbreaking.

Undead as they were my favorite race back from WC3. I also plan on leveling a troll shaman or hunter and maybe an orc warlock once I’ve got my priest to max level and all squared away.

It's not easy being green.

Yea, Orc for me.

Wow, didn't realize Dwarves and Gnomes were that unpopular.

Undead obviously, btw they keep new animations right? Not the classic ones?

Human. I prefer their look, aesthetically, and the way most armour fits their frame.

I'm also a sucker for reputation grinds, so that'll help.

Probably Orc.

I'm playing Shaman most likely, so gonna have to think long and hard on this one until release, as I like all three.

I absolutely love troll lore, voice and so on, and I wish I was dead set on them - but I feel like they don't look as cool in gear as the other races. Coolest racial mounts though, hands down.

I've read in the past that they have hired people to specifically work on recreating classic animations and spell effects.

Huma f priest; was gonna go m dwarf priest originally, but after playing it on a private server I realized that choosing a race only based on their priest racials (i.e fear ward) is just too much powergaming for me these days...prefer those thicc human fs in their slick Truefaith Vestments fgm!

Yeah I don't really care too much about racials - I'm gonna go troll. Honestly I have a hard time because I think Orc, Troll and Tauren are all really cool. If I was going back to Alliance it would be without a doubt a Dwarf.

This exact logic applies to my own decision, lol. I’ll be playing what most perhaps wouldn’t, a human priest. Yes, that’s right, no dwarves for me! Cloth gear on dwarves just doesn’t shine in my eyes. Considering how long I’ll be staring at my character, this decision matters!

Well, given that it's sort of a self-insertion, i'm going human. Borin', I know.

I will inevitably try to get Exalted with all, so yes, having «influence» certainly helps!
Such excite indeed.

I'll be an altoholic and play ALL the right races. Horde that is. But in my heart of hearts my main will always be an undead mage.

I thought I did, and still do...

Undead priest!

It's just a shame armour looks like garbage on most of the horde races. Human and Nelf is where it's at. It also looks good on Belfs but, not like that's relevant.
