Breakfast Topic: Which race has the best lore? {WoW}

Nov 20th 2011 9:01AM The problem with Tauren lore is that, as an expy of Native Americans, they rely mostly on the oral tradition. There should be virtually no written accounts of Tauren history, except from outside observers. As such, most of their lore should be things like creation myths, epic sagas of legendary warriors, et al.

Which is a shame, because they deserve a spotlight.

Then again, we all know what happened to Draenei, Worgen and Gnomes, don't we?

Nov 1st 2011 1:41PM I may have the unpopular opinion here, but please, leave well enough alone. I know Metzen digs redemption stories and bringing back fan favorites, but I honestly don't like it. But that may be because I didn't exactly like Illidan in WC3 (there were others I liked even less, but none of them came back... yet) because of his perceived emo-ness. Illidude, when you do evil stuff, stand by it. You didn't hear Death Knight-Arthas whining about lost love, did you?

Oct 22nd 2011 7:15PM 1. Your point? Cataclysm also offered a joke race. I'll leave it to the individual which one of the two the joke really is.
2. Wait, you can infer the quality of the storyline from a few snippets and teases, without having played through it? I'm in awe.
3. Almost 99 PERCENT of everything is crud. Sturgeon's Law.
4. And there you're off the rocker. While being suitably exotic, the art style still carries the typical WoW flair. Just compare it with Night Elven settlements, which already established a variation on the Asian style. If anything, then Uldum doesn't really look like it belongs to Azeroth (and still I really dig the Egyptian theme).

When almost all of the "hardcore players" quit WoW, there will still be the overwhelming majority of casuals playing it. So, while WoW may no longer have umpteen million subscribers. it's still safe to say that this game will be alive longer than most people expect.

Hey, this hyperbole thing is fun. Could get used to it.

"obviously the 'opposites' ie Fire and Water, couldnt mix"

I present: the Steam Rager. http://www.wowhead.com/npc=24601. Not to mention other hot water elementals (Boiling Spirits also in Borean Tundra come to mind).

I don't think the elemental philosophy in Azeroth is one of mutually exckusive opposites, but rather different parts of a whole.
