Why does the starting zone matter? You can pretty much start out wherever you want
Not everybody wants to die 30 or 40 times on their way through the Barrens before they even get to play the game.

When it comes down to it, I fell in love with the Tauren in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos (and Frozen Throne). I was practically required to play one when World of Warcraft launched. My first character was a druid. Didn't stick with it very long. Ended up trying an undead Warlock. Got to maybe 13 before I gave up there. Then, standing in Orgrimmar, I came across a Tauren on a kodo wearing some pretty sweet looking armor called Valor.

I was die-hard warrior from there.

Did mostly Alliance last time so I'm going Horde with an Undead Lock. I just like the look of both the undead toon and their mounts. My alt will be an Orc Hunter. This time around I'm no PVP, no dungeons, no raids, no bg's. Not by choice but by limitations of satellite internet sometimes being a bit laggy but I can deal with it, I at least get to play this fun game again and just can't wait. I haven't had this kind of feeling since being a kid at Christmas.

Night Elf because their starting zone is pretty and I like their jumping animations!

I'm in the plum position of both liking Orcs best for their model/animations, fantasy/lore shit, and broken-ass Hardiness.

That said I'm rolling an Undead Warrior as my primary alt, which is maybe the worst Horde race for Warrior, just because I'm taking him less seriously as a warrior. So in that case, I guess for Aesthetics and for doing a different start zone for my second character.

Only real thing I don't take into consideration is PvE performance, I guess. I think everyone can get the job done there pretty well (don't have to worry about Fear Ward on Horde side), and raiding's not really on the top of my priorities.

You got that right. I still have all the love in the world for my first main, the gnome, but after years the 'small armor fatigue' set in.

Gnomes run faster.
I don't care if people think Gnomes are annoying, I think the animations and hairstyle options are good.

That's a fair point, should perhaps be added to the poll as well.

Milhouse Manastorm! I love my Gnomes. I was in the guild G4 (Gnomeregan Forever), an all Gnome guild on Wyrmrest Accord. It was a very fun guild & people took notice when we came to town. Good Times.

I choose my race in the following order:

1. Model. Do i like the look of it? Does it look cool with end-game tier sets on?
2. Racials.

Since i happen to love Undead, i can roll as mage or rogue and still have the best racials.
I also love Humans so..as a Paladin, again, easy.
