Negrow. Oo, Blizzard is so racist!Seriously, there's plenty of shit you can complain about in terms of stereotypes in WoW (come on, Trolls, I love you more than any other race, but you're ridiculous). Considering "Worg" is a preexisting term (originating in Tolkein if I'm not mistaken), it's pretty obvious that Blizzard just slapped the "-en" prefix onto it to create a term for their werewolves.And even if it is some bizarre jab at the black community, then I salute Blizzard. Black people are badass Victorian werewolves? Best stereotype ever!

Negrow? Get it right, man...Worgens' arms grow when they transform, not their knees.:P

That's a 'Warg', actually, and Tolkien got that term from Norse mythology, IIRC. 'Worg' was coined by D&D, and 'Worgen' is simply the plural since 'Worgs' sounds retarded.
