I am not an RP'er and only looked into this article 'cause I like taurens, for some reason I think they're neat. I also hoped it would lemme know why lorewise female taurens don't have udders. Frankly I think that would be awesome. Mostly for bad puns but still. What reading the article made me wonder most though was how had I missed the fall of Cairne video near the end? It was awesome and as we get a moviewatch article every day, I cannot imagine how I missed that one, unless someone else slacked and didn't get to it.

Agreed on the awesomeness of that Legacy video. I had never seen it before, and I was absolutely riveted from start to finish. I read The Shattering so I recognized what it was showing immediately, but the way it was filmed there was amazing. Major kudos to whomever made that machinima!!!Also makes me wonder why there can't be an in-game cinematic similar to this (but obviously shorter) that explains how all this happened. I was glad there was at least a bit of explanation during the Children's Week quest in Mulgore, but it's still a travesty that such major lore developments (along with Fandral's fall from power and Magni's stonification) are only explored in out-of-game sources. I enjoy the books/comics/manga/breakfast cereal as much as the next loremaster, but there should still be enough info in the game to explain things as major as losing faction leaders. /soapbox

Tauren Females do not have udders because tauren are not bipedal cows.Their skeletal and digestive systems are entirely different. They did not evolve from cows, nor did cows evolve from them. The Earthmother created the tauren exactly as they are and placed them on Azeroth. Cows are a recent human/eastern kingdoms phenomenon.If nothing else... Look closely at a male tauren sometime and notice their "snaggle teeth", do the quests and see how much they hunt. Do cows eat meat? No. Tauren act more like wolves.Do I oink at orcs because they have tusks? No. Do I baaa at draenei because they're space goats? Well, maybe, but that's more of a Horde/ Ally conflict thing, really.Try http://goingbearfoot.wordpress.com/2009/02/03/field-book-1-tauren-skeleton/for more info.
