    What are the iconic classes and characters for each race?

    Trying to go through each race and level toons based on classes that have characters which are iconic. Can't think of one for every race though so need help.

    So far I have:

    Blood Elf:
    Mage: [Kael'thas/Rommath/Aethas/Anastarin, Darth'remar (post-exile)]
    Hunter [Lor'themar, Windrunners x4, Halduron]
    Paladin [Liadrin]
    Rogue: Valeera Sanguinar
    DH: Kayn Sunfury

    (can't think of anyone else that is iconic level - though there are some decent characters in other classes, Valeera and Kayn for e.g.)

    Nightborne:
    Mage: Thalyssra, Valtrois, Occuleth, Elisande

    (Silgryn for warrior? Although he isn't that iconic tbh)


    Night Elf:
    Mage [Azshara/Xavius/Farondis, Elisande, Illidan, Darth'remar]
    Druid: [Malfurion, Fandral Staghelm, Broll, Nar'thalax]
    Demon Hunter: [Illidan]
    Priest: [Tyrande]
    Warrior: [Jarod Shadowsong], [Shandris Feathermoon]
    Hunter: Shandris
    Rogue: Maiev, Sira (all Wardens)

    (can't think of anymore really, that are iconic level, Mordant Evenshade perhaps?)


    Void Elf
    Hunter: Alleria
    Mage: Umbric

    Orc
    Shaman: Thrall, Drek'thar, Aggra, Ner'zhul
    Warrior: Garrosh, Grom x2, Ogrim, Varok Saurfang
    Warlock: Gul'dan, Ner'zhul
    Hunter: Rexxar
    DK; Danosh Saurfang, Teron Gorefiend
    Rogue: Garona Halforcen

    Human
    Warrior: Varian, Anduin Lothar,
    Paladin: Uther, Turalyon, Tirion, Arthas (Morgraine formerly)
    DK: Arthas, Bolvar, Morgraine
    Priest: Anduin Wyrnn, Benedictus
    Mage: Antonaidas, Aegwyn, Medivh
    Rogue: Matthias Shaw

    Kul'tiran:
    Mage: Jaina
    Tidesage/Shaman: Brother Pike
    Rogue: Flynn/Tandred Proudmore
    Warrior: Daelin Proudmore

    (how would you categorise Lord Stormsong and Lady Waycrest - Priest/druid? or Mages?)

    Forsaken
    Hunter: Nathanos
    Mage: Meryl Firestorm
    Rogue: Lilian Voss
    Priest: Calia Menethils, Alonsus Faol

    Worgen
    Warrior: Genn Greymane, Darius Crowley

    Draenei
    Priest: Velen, Maladaar
    Paladin: Yrel, Maraad
    Mage: Archimonde
    Shaman: Nobundo

    Lightforged
    Paladin - Turalyon?


    Gnome:
    Tinker: Gelbin Mekkatorque
    Rogue: Kelsey
    Mage: Millhouse Manastorm


    Mechagnome
    Warrior/Tinkert: Prince Erazmin

    Darkspear:
    Hunter: Vol'jin, Sen'jin, Rokhan
    Warrior: Vol'jin/Rokhan
    Shaman: Sen'jin Witch Doctor Zalazane (on Echo Isles)
    Druid: Zentabra


    Zandalari:
    Paladin: Talanji
    Warrior: Rastakhan
    Priest: Zhul, Talanji, Hexlord Raal
    Shaman: Talanji, Hexlord Raal

    [would Wardruid Loti qualify as iconic though?)

    Tauren:
    Warrior: Cairne & Baine Bloodhoof
    Hunter; Cairne, Baine
    Shaman; Magatha Grimtotem, Muln Earthfury
    Druid: Hamuul Runetotem

    (Would Sunwalker Dezco qualify as iconic? I don't really know him)

    Highmountain:
    Warrior: Huln, Mayla
    Shaman: Rivermane lady
    Hunter: Skytotem tribe guy with the eagles

    Dwarf:
    Shaman: Magni? Falstaad?
    Warrior: Muradin, Kudrann?
    Rogue: Brann?
    Priest: Moira
    Hunter: Hemet Nesingwary and Junior

    Dark Iron
    Mage: Thaurissian
    Shaman?


    Goblin
    Tinker: Gazlowe
    Scumbag (Rogue): Gallywix
    Mage: Alakahzam ? (does he even qualify?)



    Vulpera
    Rogue: Don't remember their names

    Pandaren
    Monk - i mean like every pandaren we know.
    Chen Stormstout, Lili, Taran Zhu, Ji Firepaw - to name a few, all monks

    Currently I think blizzard is serious about race/class combos htey have icnoci characters in, yes I know it seems some races are very far from that, but that's just a time illusion, if they don't come to a character or class in a race for a while, people start forgetting that race does that class very well. Classic example is blood elves, people now think of them as Light experts, and don't even have them as mages number 1 anymore - just becuase blizzard hasn't showcased Belf mages for a while.

    But i think if they have powerful legendary characters in a race

    Only one iconic Worgen character? Genn?

    It's an interesting way to look at races, if you had rephrased the question as which are the most iconic classes for each race, the answers would be different. But this shows actually what blizzard thinks are the key classes of each race.

    Gonna post this on the official boards, see what peeps think.

    You could add Moira for Dwarfs. She is a priest and pretty well known

  4. #4
    For void elves you can add Warrior. Alleria Windrunner was aided by Captain Celosel Nightgiver, whom I believe commands Ren'dorei regiments, during her hunt for Sylvanas.
    We each walk a line. Choose yours.

    EEk, I really thought I did, she was in my head when I was writing it, not sure why I didn't mention it.

    Oh.. new character? From the book? or comic? Or is this in Shadowlands?

    I could only think of Genn, don't know others.

    Yeah, I know the title sucks - makes it sound like another best class for each race thread, it's not what I really wanted

    Sure, knock yourself out, you might want to use a different heading though

    He is a new character from the Shadows Rising novel, Alleria orders him to provide food, clothes, etc. for the refugees in Arathi after they're done with the interrogation.

    Also, I would think Falstaad and Kudran are warriors and hunters moreso than shaman, unless you view the stormhammer gryphon riders as shaman because of their lightning powers

    Would be interesting to see if they do new character for them..


    Rogue, Warlock, Priest are the classes that fit their theme very very well, yet they have no representation there.

    It's funny, out of Mage, Hunter and Warrior (the 3 they seem to have), only mage really fits.. but then the void is more of an enhancement... still though.

    Also

    Nightborne Hunter (Hunter classhall follower Syrenne) - although i'd hardly call that iconic.
    Nightborne mage: Elisande ofc, like the most notrious mage.

    Night Elf Hunter - Also Tyrande and Shandris

    Worgen Rogue - Tess Greymane

    Zandalari Paladin - Talanji is actually a Paladin/Priest not a Shaman due to Rezan.

    Tauren Druid - Archdruid Hamul(?) Runetotem

    I`d say Milhouse Manastorm is pretty iconic for the gnomes, well, depends on why they are iconic i suppose

  11. #11
    Hamuul Runetotem for Tauren Druid?

    If i ever have a chance to fly to France, i will do so with my only intention being to find you Boub and give you a hug for being so awesome ^_^ <3

    For Humans, I would suggest adding Darion Mograine for DK's.

    Agreed, he fits the bill for icnoic Gnome mage

  16. #16
    Tauren shaman - Muln Earthfury
    Tauren paladin - Sunwalker Dezco

    Draenei shaman - Nobundo, Akama
    Draenei priest - Exarch Maladaar

    Worgen warrior - Darius Crowley

    Night Elf druid - Fandral Staghelm
    Night Elf warrior - Jarod Shadowsong

    Dwarf hunter - Hemet Nesingwary, and Hemet Nesingwary Jr
    Dwarf warrior - Vanndar Stormpike

    Gnome mage/warlock - Millhouse Manastorm

    Orc dk - Dranosh Saurfang, Teron Gorefiend
    Orc rogue - Garona

    Zandalari druid - Wardruid Loti
    Zandalari priest - Hexlord Raal

    Also Bolvar was a paladin, not a warrior. Sen'jin was a witch doctor which is more like a shaman/priest hybrid, and Rokhan is a shadow hunter, so more like a hybrid of shaman/hunter.

    Agreed, he's a new character, but not iconic.

    And come on, the most iconic human mages have to be Jaina and Khadgar.

    Yes. Thought the term "Highlord" made that obvious, really.

    Calia isn’t a Forsaken, she almost isn’t considered undead at all. She is more of a lightbourne Human than anything else.

    At least not in the Iconic sense, Putress, Faol, High Inquisitor Fairbanks, Lillian Voss, og Nathanos. Maybe some abominations like... Rotgut I forget the guy who patrols and gives quests outside of UC.
