    Thank you, ugh. I hate racials so much. People should be able to play the race they want to play, not the race their raid makes them feel obligated to play.

    They don't have the best racials for raiding or PVP

    I know I certainly didn't when I joined WoW.
    I didn't either

    Then I learned racials existed and from late BC - probably MoP it was 100% racials

    Dwarves could have a 10% damage buff and only raiders would play them
    Raiders and the M+ community probably PVPers too oh and let's not forget all the wannabes of each of those groups

    Not gonna read 5 pages of probably the same arguments, so bet someone already pointed it out, but people have aversion to races that even remotely look "fat". Imo Dwarves don't look "fat", they look tough and stocky, but they're completely opposite of the "lean" races like Elves or Forsaken that are popular.

    Every time there's a discussion about Dwarves, Pandas or Kul Tirans it always ends up as "eww fat".

    How is it stupid? Someone said in the discussion about Mechagnomes on wowhead that people would play a walking turd if it had OP racials, that's what sounds stupid to me. Unfortunately it's probably true.

    Warcraft Dwarves have no identity, nothing that would set them apart. They are just short humans.

    Female dwarves aren't dwarfy enough, they need beards. Fix that and we can play the race as intended.

    Beg to differ. Humans lives above ground in castles while dwarves live below ground in vast underground cities. Dwarves are connected to earthen as builders and constructors while humans are connected to vrykul which were just fleshified stone version were just warriors. Dwarves have a connection to the elemental lords like ragnaros, humans don't really have a connection to an entity except 'the light' which unlike the draeneis narru has no face to it.

    Dwarves stand on their own with decent enough lore.

    Warcraft dwarves are hideous, the males in particular have faces that look like 80 year old scrotums with potato noses. 80% of their hairstyles are balding, like human males.

    In warcraft, anything that is not an elf follows the rule of male = 40-50 year old, female = 25. And even then night elves fall to this design paradigm too.

    Convince me first that the majority of players play their race because of racials. Sure if I have to choose between 2 races I really like, I'll pick one that has the racial I like most. But I don't believe that majority of players play a race because a spreadsheet told them what race had the best racial.

    I vote low dwarf pop, because they are an insulting stereotype and like gnomes, who wants to play a short race?

    Dwarves, no Caster classes? you do know in Vanilla, Dwarves were almost (I do stress almost) mandatory for Priest on alliance. They were the only one to have "Fear ward" which trivialized many boss fight mechanics, if your tank wasn't running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. Back in Vanilla, only Dwarf Priests had Fear ward, and only became available to all priests in TBC.

    I wonder if it's perhaps because players who might normally enjoy dwarves tend more towards playing Horde? As a Horde main I know that Dwarf is the only Alliance race that really interests me.

    People don't generally like to play a short and ugly race, it's not rocket science.

    WoW is turning more and more into 2nd life. People just want to look pretty/awesome. Has very little to do with fantasy or RPG.

  18. #98
    -A good amount of gear looks bad on them.

    -Close to 0 story focus at all.

    -Most importantly, they aren't Elves or Humans who are played by like 70% of players if you add them together. People prefer those races for aesthetic purposes.

    Because they're ugly and there's nothing unique about WoW dwarves. They're probably the most generic race in the entire game after humans. Just the generic bearded, vaguely scottish, miners they are in every fantasy setting.

    I absolutely love the Dwarves as a race.

    Out of all races, their lore interests me the most.
