    Being a better raider... you know not leaning on crutches like better racial abilities, we down bosses with what the classes bring not queer pigs and cow people.

    Not having to feel morally cringey with killing neutral npcs/the opposing faction and still calling myself "noble and honorable".

    I have an extremely hard time getting into the mode of being a horde as I find all of their races to be more or less through-and-through evil whilst calling themselves "the oppressed/hunted". I don't want to play someone who's both evil and oblivious to the fact that they are in fact evil. I'd rather play the Scourge as they at least know they are evil.

    And I'm also not in my teens listening to Korn whilst rolling an undead warlock or something and believing I'm such a cool anti-conformist against society so I play Horde. I find that attitude to be the general horde-attitude on the forums far more than in-game though.

    The general horde-player also seems to believe they as a faction are still the "cool, odd and mature choice" because they play "ugly" races yet they prove time and time again how awkward and angsty they are more so than the alliance side whenever the A/H-discussion surfaces

    Thank you all for the interesting input, but can one of you answer my question in regards to the classes I mentioned? Thanks

    You do less damage in raids. Also, your racials are less useful in raids. You do A LOT less damage in raids when the boss is a beast. You have to recruit more because there are a lot more hardcore horde guilds.

    Also, you do less damage in raids.

    Gotta love how, as expected, the foaming-at-the-mouth rabid horde fanboys come out in force to give the OP reasons NOT to play alliance, when they were clearly asking for quite the opposite.

    So without further ado:

It's the Horde Way.

Although now that I have leveled my druid to about 30 I have realized I am in cat form about 90% of the time....so I might just roll a troll druid as I won't be looking at them as much as I thought I would lol.

    Not really an advantage I suppose, but it has been nice seeing the other half of the game basically. My boyfriend jokingly calls me a traitor for rolling and alli, but I might as well see the entire game lol.
    Druids are known for their forms, but you can be out of your form by either going Resto or using the Glyph of Stars for Balance (it modifies your Moonkin form).

    Personally I have a Troll and Worgen Druid at 90, and working on my Nelf and Tauren ones atm.

    @the OP: Pick a race you like and just have fun. There's no shame to be had for wanting to experience the whole game. Anyone saying otherwise is just some weird egotistical person.

    I love this community so much. The stuff people say can turn a bad day into a good one instantly. I really do appreciate all of your input guys/gals.

    Worgen, Darnassus, not having to put up with Forsaken.

    That's about it. Two of those reasons are enough for me to like Alliance way more compared to the Horde.

    I try to play a different race for every class I play.

    On the two Alliance chars I have, I play a human and a night elf. The human racial is good but I don't PVP often, but it is also very useful when running older content or even 5 man instances, lots of things you can escape which is nice. So even outside of PVP it is valuable, plus the other racials which have been mentioned expertise, spirit, etc.

    For night elf I just picked it because I cannot stand the worgen chortling/sniffing/drooling whatever else they are up to, the noise just becomes bothersome after a while. Plus I am a guardian druid so the racials work out anyways(+1% dodge in particular). Also shadowmeld is really fun if you pick a non-stealth class. Nobody likes a stealthed warrior charging out of shadows.

    Overall you can't really go wrong if you are having fun, I'd just roll the dice (D&D!) and pick whatever draws you towards the adventure. Don't over think a task if your goal is just to enjoy yourself.

    Not much of a benefit but...I love the welcoming feeling of Goldshire. It's more populated compared to Razor Hill. Brill is close, but after Cataclysm hit it's meh.

    If you like lore only go alliance if you love human lore and don't give a crap about other races. Other races either get ignored or crapped on so humans look better. Alliance story has been pretty miserable recently for non-human races.

    Its good if your into the Lore of Warcraft.
    Also you can familiarize yourself in Alliance/Horde only Cities/Zones which is good if you want certain achievements (maybe For The Alliance/Horde?)

    From my experience ally players are more mature. I know both faction have immature people though.

    While Horde have the better racials overall, humans hae the single best pvp racial.

    Lots of things I miss about playing as Ally since switching over to Horde.

    1) Dung Beetles not freely roaming through you capital city and knowing there are no toilets or plumbing in Orgrimmar either.
    2) A genuine feeling of being a good guy while leveling 1-60 (ex. No burying prisoners up to the neck in excrement in Southshore, Insulting Gnomes and Dwarves height to feel better about yourself, and not having to justify why the Expansion's Bad Guy is Bad to fellow faction members)'
    3) Hearing "Great ta Meet ya" from a dwarf feels better after a long day than hearing "Lok'Tar Ogar (Victory or Death)" as a greeting. One is from a friend the other is from an overzealous military low-level grunt.
    4) Beds.... Soft plush beds... not hammocks, not orcish bunks not love motel round designer Blood Elf Cushions,... beds
    5) Not having 4 out of 6 races hunched over.
    6) Friggin Werewolves

    What I don't miss
    7) My old Alliance Guild

    So without further ado:
    If you look at the profiles of people who posted the anti-Alliance statements, they're all basically top-class raiders who the tiny DPS increase of the racial advantage will matter to.

    I think the discussion has been pretty reasonable, outside of those comments and the standard 'hurr durr ally is 4 little girl, hurr durr' comments. But it's the internet so you have to expect that.
