    If Tyr was the first paladin on azeroth per say, then that would
    be the first and/or earliest interaction between a titian something
    and the light.

    Ok so this might be a little controversial but
    most WOW playable faction has a specific theme to it.

    Humans are American themed
    Dwarfs are a combo of Scottish and German themed
    Gnomes ..... (I said most, I am not quite sure yet but I would go with robot themed)
    Night Elves .......I would say ancient race combo theme like mixing Babylonian with Mayain ..I am unsure
    Draenei are Russian and/or eastern European
    Worgen are Cockney ie People from London

    Orcs are the scifi fantasy warrior race
    Trolls are Jamaican and Caribbean
    Taruen are Native Americans
    Forsaken are the underground culture of the west
    Blood elves are the scifi fantasy elf culture
    Goblins are New Yorkers

    Pandas are of course every Asian theme

    So my head-cannon is that we will newly added races in other
    stereo typical themes.

    -We will see a Australian themed race with kangaroo mounts
    - We will see a Latino themed race in WOW
    - We will see an Italian themed race in WOW

    ROFL. I never thought of adding new races to the game based on unrepresented real-world nationalities. Though if Goblins are New Yorkers, you could say that Italians (and a lot of others) are already represented.

    As a Russian, I say there's nothing Russian in draenei. Zero. None. They're Indian. Their city looks like bazaar, with lots of fumes and religion all around, and they ride elephants. If there's something Russian in WoW, it's humans/worgen of Grizzly Hills. One of them even has my name! Also, a bit of Russian/Eastern European vibe is in Eastern Lordaeron - the Barov family, and Krastinov in Scholomance.

    I am basing my comparisons only playable races.
    The values that I used are voice accent, their backstory, and NPC responses.
    Considering those variables, I think that draenei draw from Eastern European and Russian tones.

    Mounts and architecture are purely combinations of many different things.
    For instance Night elf architecture draw from Japanese and Norse influences
    yet besides the world tree lore coming from Norse mythology there is no
    Japanese or Norse undertones to the characters. Yet moon worship is very
    characteristic of the ancient Babylonians and is central to the Night elves.

    Ok, I will give you Goblins are Italian flavored New Yorkers and act like they are
    hard core sopranos fans.

    To get technical, Cows are only found in The Eastern Kingdoms.
    So until the goblin food trade opened up in Org, there wasn't
    any cows in Kalimdor.

    Teldrassil and any other Night Elven region is smoke-free, the Treants would get the wrong idea.

    Mages in Azeroth are selfish, they could conjure food for everyone around them, yet armies rely on supplies they have to carry with them.

    ^ There's a reason Myra Tyrngaarde, bread vendor of Ironforge, doesn't bother going to the Mystic Ward.

    Out of all the playable races, Dwarves are the most open-minded considering sexuality.

    While most of these are slightly humorous, I still think it is like this. ^^

    That so reminds of the "The Ballad of the Sex Junkie" youtube dwarf sex vid.

    -Worgen have very bad allergies and that is why they sniff ....Constantly
    -Gnomes create robots because that was apart of their original program when they were constructs.
    -Hakkar is one of the old god's servants
    -Dark Rangers are higher up the undead hierarchy than human undead.

    Agree, but I'd say that its because dark rangers are in Sylvanas inner circle and she basically taught them, not necessarily because they were elves.

    Thrall is having an off panel affair with Jaina Proudmoore.

    Female races in wow are mistreated at the dinner table. Which explains why they are thinner and lankier.

    Sylvanas isn't actually evil. Rather a mentally tormented/depressed banshee.
    Who will get awesome lore development and not a throwaway death.
