    Always Draenei, my favorite race always seems like the bastard child every expansion.

    as a horde only player, I want Orcs to get some kinda on positive spotlight, but Draenei have been swept aside way too long. Pandaren should us, what Draenei have been saying for so many years. These guys are so nice and modest that they let the orcs kill them and never took revenge on them.

    Don't care, Blood Elves. Don't care if they got love this expansion. I play elves, and I don't play purple elves. Therefore the entire game should focus on Blood Elves.

    Also I felt like pretty hot shit when Lor'Themar was talking about how awesome Blood Elves are.

    This 100%. Alliance, Humans seem to be the only thing that Blizzard knows how to write a story for. Frankly, it's boring hearing once again what the Humans are up to. There are 5 other races, excluding Pandaren, that really need some lore and fleshing out for stories. The other races all suffer from minor story syndrome. Blizzard either starts a story and never finishes it, ex. the Worgen, or just never even attempts to, ex. Gnomes. Every one of their races has had a minor story that either wrapped up anticlimactically and small, or wasn't even bothered with.

    The story of the Gnomes reclaiming Gnomeregan, small and not even one patches worth of material. The Dwarves having a council now instead of a king, barely touched on. Worgen, pushed out of their starting zone and the story wrapped up on the Horde side, not the Alliance. It sounds like there may be something going down there after 5.4, but that's still to be seen if it actually goes anywhere or just remains limbo like most Alliance stories. Draenei, probably the worst offenders of them all. Very little lore was put into them at all. TBC had the most for them, but even then it wasn't much. Frankly, I can't remember the last time they were relevant, even more so their leader. He just sits there, doing nothing.

    For the Horde, I'd say Orcs and Trolls should be done with content for a long while. Trolls always pop up here and there. Orcs have pretty much been the focus for two whole expansions now. It's time to move on from them and leave them to the wayside. Forsaken could use some fleshing out, because there has been the start of some story with Sylvanas acting up. Nothing further from her though lately. Goblins and Tauren are where the love needs to start happening. Goblins a little less physical stuff and more lore. They've been given plenty of places in the world to operate.

    Tauren, probably the single worst race in terms of story and lore for the Horde. Frankly, there isn't any. They received a new leader, and nothing has been told of him at all. His model in the 5.4 cinematic was horrid compared to the others. He looked like a generic Tauren that you'd see walking around.

    These, but we all know that if you give the Worgen some love, you will also have to give some love to the forsaken (right now the Worgen story is in hand with the forsaken's story)

    BTW i would also add Goblins... they need some love

    Draenei for alliance, tauren for horde.

    Humans had the last three expansions, they can get the fuck out of the next three.

    Thereby ignoring the context of the question in the OP.

    Cause and effect. Races that are ignored have less lore to go on so become boring.

    I can understand the notion of Orcs needing development. They need to pick themselves up. You can't just brush their actions to one side without developing them so that they face what they've done and not just ignore what they have done like they have done since the Horde has ever existed.

    horde race wise: pretty much everyone but Orcs sept on the issue of who will lead them and picking themselves back up. Trolls probably will get some love along with the Tauren. Blood elves had a lot going on in MoP but I can't say I would not like to see more of Lor'themar. seems like the forsaken will get some of the spot light if Varian wants to retake Gilenas. I personally want to see what Gallywinx has been up to, so some love for the goblins is needed.

    alliance wise, everyone sept humans, night elves and gnomes should get some major attention. since I hate the night elves and gnomes with a burning passion I could give a flying fuck if they get anything at all. humans have had WAY to much of the spotlight in this game since...forever.

    without question dreanei. every other class has had SOME stuff in the last 5 years, did they even get a new race/class combo?

    They are a very interesting race thats gotten absolutely nothing.

    I really, really hope that's sarcasm.

    All the Alliance races save for Humans could use love.. Draenei more than any other. They've been practically forgotten since Burning Crusade.

    Draenei were the only race not to get a new class in Cata and were 1 of 2 races not to get an updated starting zone.

    If there is more then one race then all of those races deserve some love, the point here is that some races have been left nearly forgotten, my vote went to one of those races, Draenei.

    Draenei got no lore in wrath (its ok, since they had plenty in the previous x-pac), they got not extra class in cata, all the events during cata seem to had excluded them (i remember a quest were we could see Tyrande, Bran, Varian and Greymane discussing the events, and Velen wasn't there), it seems that Belfs got some lore in MoP, yet no Draenei. I think its time for us to know more about what the hell is Velen doing??

    Definitely Tauren, perhaps Goblin and Troll as well.

    Draenei, Gnomes, Worgens, Taurens

    Gnomes, at least until they get their fucking city back, and then Draenei times infinity.
    9 out of 10 people agree that in a room full of 10 people one person will always disagree with the other 9.

    Honestly, I'd rather them write a story that didn't sideline any of the races. It's a really weird way to tell a tale of world shattering events, particularly when the heroes of the story are all the races people can play.


    Hell, why aren't there representatives from the recruited races in the capitols now? Shouldn't the Yangol have a say in Horde affairs? I can just picture those poor bastards unrolling a sheaf of seal skin with the words written lazily on the inside "your boss is a troll now, don't worry, it's cool".
