I’m trying to decide which race I want my druid to be in Warlords of Draenor. It stands between female troll and male tauren. My druid was a male tauren before so it won’t be that much of a change for me going back to tauren. I race changed to troll when trolls got to be druids because I wanted to be an orange moonkin and because my guild thought the racial skill Berserking was very important.
But I’ve been thinking about changing back for a while now but I wanted to see what the new race models looked like before I decided. We got to see the tauren very early and I thought they looked amazing so I was very excited to see the new troll model but I think I had too high expectations because I was actually a bit disappointed. Right now I don’t really remember why, maybe because I’ve got used to them. But I think I hoped they would look more like the troll models from Isle of Thunder and Throne of Thunder, like High Priestess Mar’li. And I really hoped they would make them be able to wear shoes so I don’t have to see their ugly feet with the heel toenail all the time.
I’ve tested both races on the beta and right now I’m leaning toward male tauren because I think they look the best. They’re big, their emotes and facial expressions are good and every piece of armor will look amazing on them. But I’ll wait till the patch and try it out a little bit more before I decide.
Which race do you think I should choose? Are you planning to race change any of your characters?
