    Highmountain Tauren should never have been implemented

    Instead, Blizzard should have just gave Tauren the customization for the Highmountain horns and tattoos


    Taunka if anything would have been a better Allied Race imo


    Thoughts?

    HMT have vastly superior voice-work and playing an attack-based regular Tauren sucks.


    No thanks.

    Why do we have:

    Mag'har? They are just darker Orcs
    Nightborne? Emo Bloodelves
    Zandalaris? Decadent Trolls

    Void are just edgier Nightelves
    Lightforged Draenei are shiny Draeneis
    Dark Iron Dwarfs are hard working minedwellers
    Kul Tiran are chubbier Humans

    You can say the same about Lightforged Draenei. But from Blizzards perspective it’s more “content”.

    No thanks.
    The females make a grunt when hurt which sounds like it's cut short. Annoys the hell out of me. But agree on the rest.

    I honestly think the only answer for why we got HM Tauren > Taunka and LF Draenei > Broken is that they were easier to "make playable".
    One was literally a pallet swap; the other was a horn/antler swap.
    Broken and Taunka both would have needed brand new female models and taunka heads were a helmet challenge.

    Yes, some of the "allied races" that are pure recolours should have been just character customization options within parent race. 1 expansion later and Blizzard finally caught up to the idea they should do it (extra skin colours, tattoos, sub-race like customizations for trolls, dwarves etc.).

    Some races like Kul Tirans and Vulpera actually looks distinctive enough, but then we have stuff like LF Draenei and Mag'har orcs that are recolours with uninspired racials to boot.

    I would say:
    Nightborne are like Emo Night Elves and Void Elves are edgier Blood Elves

    So, what you're saying is...

    Mag'har should not have been implemented.
    Mechagnomes should not have been implemented.
    Dark Iron Dwarves should not have been implemented.
    Void Elves should not have been implemented.
    Kul Tiran should not have been implemented.
    Zandalari should not have been implemented.
    Lightforged Draenei should not have been implemented.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    Despite claiming to have quit the game back in Wotlk, you sure do spend a lot of time complaining about various new features....

    I just wish they hadn't given highmountain so much extra long hair. It makes the rest of thier body seem hairless.

    Vulpera are the only unique AR, the rest are just skin customization options that should have been added.
    I'm a thread killer.

    Vulpera should've been a core race then since it isn't a derivative of an existing core race

    At least everything else had a proper basis. Void Elves were literally pulled out off thin air. A real asspull
    Lightbound Orcs > High Elves https://www.mmo-champion.com/threads...ace-suggestion

    Blizzard should realize that Alteraci Humans will fulfill the Young Adult Dystopia Anarchy fantasy for Warcraft

    That would have taken actual work, as it would have taken all the helmets in the game to be remodelled for Taunka heads.

    https://www.mmo-champion.com/threads...8#post52318938 21 days ago, so less than a month. But your reaction is odd, I'm guessing you are either lying or senile - well that or you simply cannot keep track of what you say or write since you post at least 50 threads a day, and all of them are either clickbait or something you could google in 5 secs.
