    Best Horde Race for Warriors?

    Hey I'm Transfering with my guild to a new server. We are going from alliance to horde as well. I have never played horde so im sorta clueless when it comes to horde races. Here are my criteria for which race i would like...

    Must look good in gear (ie transmog)
    Must have semi-viable racials
    Must not be goblin.

    Orc's make the best warriors with Tauren a close second, but for looks I would say Blood Elf / Trolls are the best looking in gear (female BE / Male Troll that is). Although now that I think about it Male Tauren's end up looking pretty badass as well.

    Orc for dps, tauren for tanking.

    Orc or Tauren


    armor sets on either are subject to opinion

    but those are my two favorites

    I prefer Orc, but only because Tauren horns can ruin a good looking helmet imo... but it's completely up to you on any of the races. It won't make a huge difference on what you choose, but if I was DPS I would go orc, if I was a tank probably Tauren. Just to fit the persona a bit more.

    Honestly, there really isnt a wrong choice for warriors on the horde
    Orcs extra damage is nice
    Trolls have a nice mini blood lust
    Taurens are great tanks because of their stamina, as well their stun is nice in PvP
    Blood elves have a handy silence
    Undead is nice to get out of fears in PvP

    Personally, i like Taurens and orcs, but at the same time all are good.

    ha im actually still a gnome at the moment, would be hilarious joining back up with my guild as a big bad ass tauren, considering they all know me as the pink haired female gnome. lol

    Blood Elf, nothing's more satisfying than beating someone to death all the while having fabulous hair! Plus the extra silence/extra rage isn't half bad.

    Well, assuming you're talking about PvE, Orc for DPS and Tauren for tanking, but I'd go Orc.

    You've got berserker's rage for that.

    FEMALE ORC

    the armor fits them well, they look awesome in plate boots. melee action is decent, and pig tails are always fun.

    Technically speaking, Tauren for Prot and Orc for DPS, Undead if you PVP a lot, Goblin if you like being small, Blood Elf if you like being pretty, Troll if you can feel da voodoo.

    Personally I like Orc, just because they are the most warlike race and look like badass mofos when in full armor (although they slow walk like Neanderthals). Tauren look pretty beefy due to their height, but I don't like the "native american" feel - they seem less likely to be dressed in full plate armor and carrying a sword/shield or big weapon(s), and more likely to be running around in a loincloth with a bow/tomahawk. Although, the Orc 1H special attack looks stupid as hell with anything other than a sword (where he like swings upward and then stabs forward, with a "Rawr!" kind of snarl), while the Tauren 1H is a more natural slash.

    Based purely on aesthetics Undead Female have the best animations (especially prot) and look decent in armor.
    Orcs easily have the best mix of racials for PvP/DPS/Tanking (the extra DPS/threat is better than Tauren's minor stamina boost).
    Trolls have moderate animations, moderate racials, and look good in plate.
