    Yea shaman are a bit weird. The class is effectively an amalgamation of W3 Far Seer, Shadow Hunter, Witch Doctor, Shaman, Spirit Walker, and Tauren Chieftain units.

    *Which were made up of trolls, Orcs, and Tauren. I'd argue, if shaman are suppose to be first and formost masters of the elements then Orcs are the best definition of an OG shaman. Tauren were all about the spirit side of Shaman(Which is still a thing) and Trolls were on the voodoo side I.E. Hex.

    Okay I'm bored, so I'll participate !

    Alliance:

    Human: DK - The very first Death Knight were humans (by bodies at least) and the first Death Knights as we know them were humans.
    Dwarf: Hunter - Riflemen, also the vanilla cinematic who became iconic
    Gnome: Mage - They are the cleverest after all
    Night Elf: DH - First and most iconic DH were Night elves
    Draenei: Priest - Light bitches
    Worgen: Druid - Feral side, attuned with nature
    Lightforge Draenei: Paladin - Angry light bitches
    Void Elf: Warlock - Bad bitches using bad magic, and what is the nether, once you have conquered the void ?
    Dark Iron Dwarf: Shaman - Slaves of an Elemental lord, attuned to its power
    Kul Tiran Human: Warrior - Because they the biggest
    Mechagnome: Rogue - Scrappers who can use multiple tech gadgets


    Horde:

    Orc: Warlock - This class was a big part of the green orc history
    Troll: Hunter - Headhunter, Shadowhunters, savage tribes, yeah, yeah
    Tauren: Paladin - They always were the goody two-shoes of their faction and they bring a really different interpretation of the class
    Undead: DK - Because basically they are humans who are dead
    Blood Elf: DH - They are the only DH Horde race, so this is their burden.
    Goblin: Rogue - For obvious reasons you sneaky bastards
    Highmountain Tauren: Druid - Blessing of E'chero and being noticed by Cenarius-senpai make them better druids
    Nightborne: Mage - They are even better than BE at being Mages
    Mag'har Orcs: Warrior - They are like usual orcs except warlock wasn't a big part of their history
    Zandalar Trolls: Priest - Many loa to worship = many priests to do the worshipping
    Vulpera: Shaman - Special resilience to the fire element, living in a desert make them rely more on the elements for survival, you could guess

    Pandaren: Monk

    Dark Iron dwarves are caster focused. They were a spellcaster caste, as opposed to more martial Bronzebeards and Wildhammers.

    You're absolutely right in that they are more magical than their more martial cousins, but while spellcasting is more common in their ranks, they are still focused on blacksmithing primarily and boast a majority of martial classes, especially rogues and warriors. Priests remain fairly common as they do with normal dwarves, and warlocks and mages are more common than with other dwarves, however, they are still the vast minority.
    I think I've had enough of removing avatars today that feature girls covered in semen. Closing.

    Their sorcerers are quite prevalent, looking at their leaders, the senate, and their appearances during battles. They usually come with golems, elementals, shamans, mages, shadowmancers and heavy infantry. I wouldn't call spellcasters a minority. They are a huge part of their society, just like engineers and martial focused dwarves.

    I actually reviewed tons of images and lore about DI dwarves when I responded to you before. While you are right that the majority of their non-priest leadership uses magic to enhance their martial prowess and that of their soldiers, in almost every image and battle I could find, the leaders are completely surrounded by swords and boards (with the occasional gun).

    Thanks for the civil conversation

    I discussed this with my friends and we came to conclusion that they can have the biggest caster percentage of all non-elf races(maybe except Draenei, who have priest/paladin overload) but their spellcasters are a minority because teaching common folk magic is hard. However, the nobles are likely mostly sorcerers, as they have time, money and tradition to learn magic.

    It is always good to talk in civil way. The trick is to avoid words "Alliance" and "Horde".

    True. But the same could be said of any race. Most Nightborne are not spellcasters. Still, magic is so central to their culture that the mage is the nightborne's iconic class. Most Night Elves are not druids. Most Taurens would simply swing an axe rather than commune with the spirits to throw a lighning bolt. Same with the Dark Irons. Modgud, Thaurissan, the summoning of Ragnaros, the golems, etc. show that magic is a huge part of DI culture. More so than the two other dwarf nations.

    Quite not right, Nightborne are predominant in the "arcane magics" even their Melee bruisers are spellcasters (mageblades as we know it) thats why their pasive its the 1% of arcane damage. As the night elves, only Males were Druids and females were the Warrior/hunter centrics. Taurens in the other hands their were the classic "Fighter" class, meaning they can be anything with a little training, Druidism was just added because we needed a Druid class for the Horde and their strong connection to the wild gods (HM taurens)

    For the DI culture i think people because they are dwarfs they believe they are "me muscle only me smash" but in reality they are like Nightborne, predominant in the "magic schools/element bindings"

    Nightborne are predominent in magic, yes, but most of the population are not mages. Still, their iconic class is the mage. If we had to appoint one classe to that race, it must be mage. That's the point. Magic is predominent in DI society as well, but most DI are not spellcasters. The mainstay of any army remains sword swinging, axe hacking grunts. It remains that when we are thinking of DI, we see some sorcerer, some dark magic user. Or some blacksmith, but since it's not a class...

    I agree that any race will have a predominantly S&B army, but when you look at their actual lifestyles and cultures - Nightborne live in a city run on magic and nearly everyone you meet uses magic in some way in their daily life. DI's are definitely not that invested in it. They live like dwarves in day to day life for the most part and still rely HEAVILY on mechanical engineering.
