I'm not entirely sure I'd count the size of your shoulderpads as part of the height of your character :PBut okay, I'll give you that one.I still play my tauren for the same reason you do. Being a behemoth feels right for being a warrior tank. I mean, Lady Forsakens make good Fury Warriors, they feel really crazed. And I dunno why, but Female Orcs seem to work great as Arms Warriors; I just look at them, and want to see them seeing a big two handed axe.But nothing feels like an unstoppable tank, a living wall, like Taurens do.

Oh yeah. And all people who play warriors are unabashed masochists.If they say they aren't, they are in denial.

This is really true. Anyone who truly loves the warrior class has a deep self-loathing somewhere in their twisted psyche. Personally, though I am continuously frustrated by the state of the class, I try to look at it as a challenge. My current goal for my warrior is to get the Battlemaster title, which could be compared to trying to build a whole house from scratch and instead of using a hammer using your HEAD.

Maybe *that's* why I leveled that Shaman resto all the way to endgame....

I play a heifer-tank in WoW and a dwarf fighter in D&D and it's hard to say which is the more tanky-feeling race. The tauren's got a hulking unstoppableness and the dwarf has this stern, stocky, immovable thing going on.D&D dwarfs even have a resistance to knockbacks, which really helps with the stern immovability feel. There's nothing like standing firm and continuing to press in while the rest of the party gets shoved back a few steps by an evil wizard's thunderwave. :D

Should have taken off the shoulders and... I think he's standing a bit up-hill of her. I call a re-SS. ^^
