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.

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

(Human for me)

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!

I will go Nelf, even tho i know Humans have way better racials. Humans are boring.

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!
