    Will the Draenei take a more prominent role?

    After the Horde have had such major roles in previous expansions (Cataclysm & to some extent MoP) do you think Warlords of Draenor will focus on and give the alliance more of a story, if so, are there even any major Draenei characters with whom we can all get behind?

    I am sure we will see the horde storyline of Vol'jin also play out in some way as well, but still the 'focus' should be on the Draenei telling the story? Can the Draenei carry an expansion is my next question...

    The Draenei didn't do too much until the Orcs on Draenor were mislead to think the Draenei were bad though... even when that happened they kinda just ran away like the French.

    I'm sure it will just turn into another Horde centered story like how the orcs want to atone for nearly wiping em out ect ending with Thrall becoming the new leader of the burning legion or some other bunch of bs lol.

    Honestly depends on the situation. If Time Travel is involved, expect it to center on the Orcs. If it's a straight up legion expansion, Dreanei get to be cool again.

    It's called Warlords of Draenor. I imagine the Dranei will have a fairly big role.

    As a Horde player, I hope so. The Alliance, especially the Draenei, deserve more lore and attention.

    As a fan of Draenei and Draenei lore, I would love it if they get attention. And I don't see a better time than now (if WoD is the expansion)

    How much lore is out there for Draenei already, what sort of characters might we expect to interact with and get to know.

    Sort of how like we had Taran Zhu, Chen Stormstout etc for pandaria characters.

    What do you mean by again ? They were never cool. Unless you consider "draenei got slaughtered by [evil organization here]" as something cool.

    I liked them in BC.

    Then they just stopped being around.

    Yup, I agree. I'm mainly a Horde player but I also play on Alliance and enjoy playing as Draenei and I think it's kind of annoying how Draenei haven't had much of a story since BC. Hopefully this new expansion will make up for all those years that Blizzard has been ignoring them. The Alliance as a whole too needs to have a chance to have a more dominant story this time. I mean I love Horde and I enjoyed playing through Cata and especially MoP but they were mostly focused on the Horde with Thrall playing Captain Planet in Cata and then Garrosh being the main boss in MoP and all the events that happened during MoP that lead up to that moment. I think it's about time Alliance get a turn to be in the spotlight for once. More specifically, the Draenei.

    Draenor is technically the name of the planet they stole from the Orcs. If they hadn't been wimps and ran from the Burning Legion then the Legion wouldn't have come to Draenor and they wouldn't have corrupted the Orcs. The Orcs being corrupted and invading Azeroth is a direct result of the Draenei being losers and the Alliance should finish the job that the Legion started by slaughtering all of them.

    Draenei are the coolest race. It's a scientific fact.

    From the sounds of it this will once again be another Horde-fest expansion, but hopefully the Alliance will get it's time to shine as well. If we're staying in the present then there's plenty of opportunity for the Draenei to take front and centre. If we're in the past, changing the time lines we could inspire the Draenei to take a more active stance against the Orcs.
    Disclaimer: No I'm not Alliance. I reserve the right to bat for both factions thank you very much.

    This is basically the entire story of the Draenei.

    To the point of the thread, I want to have the Draenei lore expanded. In WotLK, there were 3 named Draenei in Howling Fjord / Borean Tundra. In Cataclysm, we had a couple of female Shamans in the Earthen Ring. In MoP, we only had one Draenei medic in service of SI:7.

    Draenor might be the orcish homeplanet, but the Draenei had the biggest civilization on the planet before the Rise of the Horde. Just look at present Outland, the number of Draenei ruins on almost all over the place, from Shattrath to the Temple of Karabor, from Zangarmarsh to the Fields of Farahlon.

    What active stance? The orcs were tribal and far from the Draenei centers. Are you implying that the Draenei should do the same that the Orcs did to them?
