I don't know if this has been asked before, but it's bugging the hell out of me:Why aren't the Night Elves and the Tauren allied or at least neutral towards another? I know that the Tauren have sworn allegiance to Thrall, but the two races have so much in common: They're crazy about Earthen balance, Druidism, preserving nature. They have the Cenarion Circle in which they ally, but why not besides that?

Technically, the Cenarion Circle is non-race based; everyone is welcome. However, the night elves are a bit fanatic and have a serious hate-on for the orcs, so the tauren alliance with them is probably enough to ruin any fond feelings.

While the Cenarion Circle is present, Night Elves and Tauren actually racially hate each other. The Tauren have long had paths that cross into Night Elves lands, and are on typically squatting grounds such as Feralas. Even to this day Night Elves have patrols in the Southern Barrens.In fact, one of the most stand-out comments during TBC's launch was a Tauren commenting about Draenei, referring to them as "blue elves" and stating they had always been at war with the "elves from the north".

Well yes, that is the situation now, but as I recall, the Night Elves and the Tauren were natives of Kalimdor while the other races were outsiders.So there should be some sort of relationship (friendly/hostile/whatever) already existing between them before the other races showed up.

Also tauren dont really like night elfs much because they were responsible for the burning legion coming to azeroth in the first place
