When I first got into wow in 2005 and reading up on it, I was obsessed with the horde side, undeads, orcs, taurens, trolls! Amazing!! so much better than stupid gnomes, dwarfs, icky humans, and night elves.....eeewww!
But my friends have been playing horde and wanted to go alliance this time around when I started. So I picked a dwarf priest!
And I have to tell you, Alliance is such an amazing faction! I am not saying I like the alliance more than horde but I have love for both I guess! They are both different and have their own things that the other faction dont have that make them appealing!
I fell in love with the Alliance aesthetics, the sounds, visual styles, colors, lore, and so on!
Ironforge is the best city in the game period!
So like stfupper said you can play both and I encourage you do some point in classic wow lifetime! I played both during vanilla but mostly alliance side!
You defiantly need to take them both in and enjoy what they both offer! You may enjoy one more than the other but both are enjoyable in every aspect of the game! I noticed something in vanilla when i was doing Strat on both Alliance and Horde. It was odd seeing Alliance take one path to victory and the Horde side would take another path to finish the dungeon. I found that odd but refreshing. Its not always about the races looks, sounds, and feels. Even things like running dungeons, both sides have their way of doing things and those factions know their sides. Its like a whole new world!!
The Burning Crusade is coming soon
