    Neither. They are both far inferior to any pally race on the alliance side in lore and looks.

    Only for pvp and trash. The stomp is useless against pretty much any raid boss that doesn't have adds.

    Really? Well, to each their own, but Tauren definitely look more badass than any other race in the game, especially in Plate. Draenei are the only somewhat cool looking race on the Alliance IMO.

    Belf every day, both my Paladins are belf female, Arcane Torrent is great for Holy + PvP and is more useful than War stomp as Prot/Ret, I also enjoy walking through doorways

    Bloodelf simply because I've had the Paladin since they were introduced in TBC and can't really stand the tauren race except for the druid class.
    when all else fails, read the STICKIES.

    Tauren... I named him Kamiushi which means Divine or 'Holy' Cow :-) Google Translate FTW

    Edit: Huh, it's saying it means cow god now... weird.

    Tauren.

    I absolutely loathe Belves. The way they stand, the way they move, all of their animations and the fact they can't seem to grow proper facial hair.

    I have played every race except Blood Elves.

    I hope if your toon is female that it's not growing facial hair...

    Not to mention the chance to get insta gibbed when you reset the swing timers of all the mobs you're tanking.

    When i was horde, belf..... i really cant stand ANY class as tauren except a warrior. they just disgust me. never going to wrap my head around why people want to play a big ugly cow =\

    All of my tanks are Tauren and all of my classes capable of tanking are tanks, so Tauren it is. Can't stand those puny elves.

    Tauren!

    Because
    -I love big guys (especially anthro characters)
    -I love the "SunWalkers" idea (even It's under-developped )
    -I've seen so much Elves (in every fictions) I can't stand them now.
    -Seeing a thin boy or girl, without ounce muscles and using a four-handed weapon in thin armors (bikini-armors for female), tanking a huge monster exasperate me....It is why I begin to hate mangas (especially shonens)...

    Ok I will give you that one.

    Blood Elf easily on both performance and aesthetics.

    Tauren is probably better for progression tanking, but for holy/ret blood elf wins, no doubt, and for a prot off-spec (non-progression) it's also great.

    running belf now, i plan to change to tauren sometime later. if i for some reason choose to go ally... dwarf. i must admit, i too find elves pretty annoying, even more after plying one for 2-3 weeks...
    somehow i'm still here... stalking around since... well 2006 or something.

    This, so much. To this day Paladin's just don't seem to quite fit on the horde side, unfortunately. If I was forced to choose, it would have to be Tauren since their animations are less terrible.

    "You can't milk those!" Doesn't work well if I try to /yell it on a belf.
