Where this tauren loremaster is concerned, the shu'halo; has been payed back a thousand fold. We need to eradicate the very disease of the horde from the earth. LK was breaking the back of us taurens being horde, cata broke and smashed the back. There is no concieveable reason why we are still allied with the orcs, and especially goblin, undead and b.elf. They all destroy, not just some but alot. I can see where bliz was going with tauren. But the story going along and the changes, do not match the tauren from 5 or 10 years ago. We are the same people the horde is not the same. No tauren would sit back in the homeland and allow every land around the world to be destroyed. Tauren should either leave and become neutral, or become alliance. Atleast the alliance isn't strip mining/clear cutting/mutation experienmentation every land there presence is. Maybe it's time we joined the Guardians. Atleast we wouldn't be raping the land. Tauren lore now is laughable, and that's sad because we had the best around up to LK.

You mean the Tauren should leave the people with the exact same culture and outlook, from the shamanic belief system to the fairly martial outlook, as them, who've finally let them thrive once and who even Garrosh treats with the utmost respect and join the Alliance who...er...um......I mean, I'm sure there's something the Tauren have in common with the Alliance races? I mean, there's the Nelfs who ignored them and left them to be wiped out despite gladly accepting military aid in the past? The Dwarves who are digging up Tauren land? The humans who burnt down their settlements, are currently bombarding them with giant spears and who they're locked in a brutal guriella war against in the Barrens? The Gnomes who are gnomes?

It's an odd thought that occured to me during this article, I guess. I can see the duality of orcs, part nutjob warriors, part shamanic nomads...So, we have shamanic orcs, idealized by thrall, with trolls and tauren.Then we have warrior orcs, idealized by garrosh, with forsaken and goblins, mercenary, plundering...(Okay, blood elves I can't say, they don't have a "place" after BC...)But the "two hordes" don't really fit each other, only the orcs unify them, and I wonder if the orcs are unified themselves.

Keep in mind the Tauren aren't exactly gentle and cuddly. They're big into the Hunter Culture Blood And Honor thing as well, ala Garrosh. In fact, given his upbringing, Garrosh, being a Mag'har probably has more culturally in common with the Tauren than Thrall does.

If the horde and Garrosh treats us the utmost respect, they wouldn't be trashing everything. Outside of Mulgore, it a mess. How can we stand by when they are cutting down the forest of felwood, when we have been purifying it. Azshara, Ashenvale, same thing. Other than a small spot of Desolace, everything the horde touches is destroyed. And I'm not even going to talk about the undead. They should be destroyed, and undercity buried after being burned, blowed up, and defecated on. If the playing tauren in the game were Grimtotem tribe, then I could let it slide. There are a quest where they ally with alliance. They are more the battle harden tauren that should be the horde.I've finished the new content in the zones on my tauren and it's as a tauren sick. No way would there be any tauren that would do some of the quests for the undead, and b.elf. Orc quests mostly are more of a honor aspect. And tauren just reinforces the old style of life. And I'm almost finished with the alliance side, and there are a less tauren/destroy the earth quests now. And there are more taurens giving quests than n.elfs in the horde quests.I agree there are a section of orcs that go well with taurens. But that is a very small group. Taurens are a race that give when they take. There is a balance. And the only reason the rest of the orcs associate with us is that we have honor. Love of battle only when honor is present. There isn't a bloodlust without honor. I know we stay horde because of balance in the game. But LK and especially Cata has blurred that line so much, the line is almost gone. And from what I have done in fireland. It's almost nonexistent. Lore is lacking now, and it's sad. Because our lore was the best in the game.

I have no doubt at all that at some future date in the game the Horde are going to lose two races. First, the Forsaken, as their Bitch Queen will piss off Garrosh Hellscream (ow, first time I used his real name in ages, feels dirty) so much that even that dense, blind, stupid idiot masquerading as the Warchief of a faction I once loved, will end up declaring war on them.Second, the Tauren. The Goblins, being Goblins, will drive them to the point of open warfare with the result that Garrosh will end up kicking them out as well.But, hey, you are going to get the Ogres and Ethereals as replacements, so what are you complaining about, 8-)
