    Tauren or Troll monk?

    I can't decide which. The Tauren would probably be based off of an old character I turned Goblin, while the Troll is sorta just for cosmetics.

    I need ideas for personalities and backstories.

    I just love my Tauren as a Warrior, as a monk, I do not see it happen, I think it will look oversized and cluncky really.
    Troll in my opinion could look really good as they are martial anyway where tauren aren't at all :<.

    Tauren, dude! At least they look like they could do some serious damage with those massive, beefy (ha!) fists. Trolls are too skinny!

    I guess it also depends on spec as well, though. A tauren would look good as a brewmaster, but a troll windwalker could work too!

    I have to be honest; tauren would actually look kind of amusing as a monk. They make great druids, warriors, hunters and the like, but monks? I don't know. Kind of big and clumsy. Trolls, on the other hand, would make a monk rather well. A personality could be a mix of a normal troll, with his voodoo and stuff, as well as an honorable and experienced, patient fighter, like most monks are (and indeed, some trolls as well).
    Besides, trolls are just badass in general.

    Tauren are the best race in WoW but I think a Troll would suit better as monk.

    I have a troll monk meself, just roleplaying him switching from Siame-Quashi to a proper monk in fact.

    The whole idea of a shadow hunter is rather close to a monk anyhow (loa priest with a strong martial aspect vs. follower of the Celestials' teachings with a strong martial aspect).

    *Edited post because some people didn't like me saying that both of the races suck in my opinion.

    Which one is which? Because I'd certainly prefer a shit to having diarrhea.

    OT: When I think of monks I think of an agile warrior so I think a troll fits that a little better. Similar to pandas....

    Guess I can't explain it too well, troll just seems to work better.

    once you go troll, you never reroll.
    It's Draenei. Drahn-eye. No Dranai, Dreani, Dratini, Dreaneai, Drayni. Except I play an Orc.

    I'm gonna roll a Tauren Monk. Big bruiser type. Can you imagine a roundhouse hoof to the jaw? it's like getting kicked by a horse.

    I love Tauren. I hate not fitting in doorways or tight hallways in dungeons. I can't stand trolls looks tho. Iono why. The rangy hunched limbs all over. Not a fan of trolls. I don't think I have ever even been able to make a troll alt of any kind.

    Both could be any. The expression means that you get to choose between terrible and horrible.
