All game mechanics aside, I just don't like the way they run. I know it's psychological, but when I see their long slow strides, it just makes running anywhere seem like a chore. I've tried a few times to roll Tauren druids, but after hitting level 10 and thinking about that trek from Mulgore to Crossroads, I just pray for some kind of teleportation hack or something so I wouldn't have to watch him run in slow motion while I press W harder and harder. It was futile.

Tauren are amongst my favourite races for aesthetics, I always go to Thunder Bluff for city services, but I can't stand playing as the race for this very reason. It's also part of the reason why Gnomes are my favourite race to play as :P (and Goblins will likely join them)

This is exactly the mental block I've had with Tauren. It didn't help that Mulgore is so huge and spread out that it feels like you're slogging and slogging. I still can't get a Tauren past level 5. Which really saddens me, because they're one of my favorite races and always have been, I love their lore so much.

I have the saaaaame problem. I got around it by playing Alliance for two years with a Shaman main and then when my friends went Horde, I went Tauren in a heartbeat. I love my big cuddly girlcow.

I'm lucky because I started as a tauren... so instead of playing a tauren and feeling slow, I play other races and feel fast. :D

This is about druids - why the devil are you not running in kitteh or travel form?
