Half my characters are Blood Elves and the other half are female Trolls, excluding my female Orc hunter. No joke. Personally, Elves of any flavor have been my preferred race in fantasy games going back to OD&D, because I'm just an Elf fangirl (I passed notes in school in Sindarin, okay?), but I love them precisely because they're NOT human. I despise the "humans with pointy ears" syndrome in a lot of fantasy and for the most part, Warcraft has avoided that. Beside that, I just love Blood Elf lore, and have since WC3. They have the most compelling story to me of all the races.My Troll love, however, is just as unabashed. I love their style, I love their culture, and I even love their tusks (I may have the only "cutefase" in existence with the biggest tusks possible). Honestly? I don't understand people who play humans. Humans are boring. I'm a human irl, why in the hell would I want to be one where I could be anything from an Orc, cow-person, alien goat chick or even a deformed midget? I seriously don't understand the mentality of people who automatically go for the most humanoid looking. How sadly lacking in imagination. But I guess that's why I'm Horde.

I agree, wholeheartedly. My first 3 toons were female trolls. I chose my troll hunter for her curves and her bright, spunky hair do's. And I don't regret it. They're fierce, they're sexy, they have the funniest flirt in the game (When enraged, and in heat, a female troll can mate over 80 times in one night. Are you prepared?). They're the best.I also agree about humans... the Alliance races are soooo boring. The only race that is anything remotely unhuman like is the draenei. Horde have different flavors! We're rough and exciting.Only thing i envy about the Alliance is their buildings are sometimes amazingly beautiful. I don't know how many times i've dreamt about cities in trees. Teldrassil and even the outpost in Zangarmarsh. Ashenvale is by far one of my most favorite zones, because of the hazy, dark, serene feel of it. But of course it's Alliance favored lol.

I can't help but agree on some of yoru points. Variety is, indeed, the spice of life. I have a great fondness for playing all kinds of different classes, and all kinds of different races. I started off Alliance, as I was joining a friend, and went with a Night Elf. She has been my main ever since. As I have tried new classes, though, I've gone for different races and genders. Female gnome warlock, male Draenei priest, male human rogue, female draenei mage, male dwarf death knight, etc. I've even begun spilling over to the horde side with my male blood elf pally and male tauren shaman, though I don't know anyone there. It really keeps things lively and interesting, especially when I decided to dance, or joke, or flirt. With that stated, there are some I quite simply will NOT play. Female dwarves are fine for the most part, but for some reason that joke about foot fungus wigs me out, so I can't stand the possibility of that coming out when I /silly. >.> I like female tauren, but the PC ones just have such a deep voice, it grates on my nerves. None of the NPCs have such a ridiculous voice that I've seen, and if only I could steal an NPC's voice, I would happily roll a female tauren. And then we have the female blood elves... I did roll a female blood elf rogue for a short while. But I realized that playing one meant I would CONSTANTLY hear that grating laughter whenever I said "lol". It's alright to hear once in a while, but with no way to escape it short of being wary what I typed, I opted to introduce her to the delete button. -_-
