    Its always amazing how people say hooved races cant stealth.

    Yet a giant fell reaver can somehow sneak up on people.

    @ OP - I feel your pain, the class/race immersion in wow is D.E.A.D. all it is now is cosmetics & homogenization... The WOW that YOU grew up with and loved is GONE, it was stabbed in the back then had its neck sliced open from ear to ear by the player base.

    It was probably a cow using stealth MAGIC.

    As to another point, stealth in this setting very clearly means invisible, because we get confirmation, multiple cinematics, that stealth actually isnt just a metaphorical thing but a literal form of magic, as we see in BFA and in Shadowlands.

    Honestly I find it odd people try to ignore 20+ years of game lore that actually has at least refferences and actual history assosiated with it to defend an argument that "tall monster cant be sneaky."

    This game literally has an entire lore around us using magic to drag a planet to Azeroth so we can beat the crap out of its soul, and people really wanna call sneaky taurens unlikely?
    In game stealth and invisibility are different things detect stealth and detect invisible are not mutually exclusive. Warlocks detect invisible had no effect to rogues stealth. A Rogue could stand next to an invisible mage and a warlock could not detect the rogue if the rogue is not in the stealth detection range.

    Give them some chonky yarn slippers, the kind your grandma used to knit for you. Problem solved.

    But yeah, hooves and stealth don't go well together. I would seriously respect Blizzard if they took stealth away from hoofed races.

    Blizzard's official stance used to be "Tauren do have rogues, but not a large enough amount to allow player rogues", so it's not something new.
    Fact (because I say so): TBC > Cata > Legion > ShaLa > MoP > BfA > WoD = WotLK

    You do know that hooves aren't loud right? The sound people associate with hooves are the metal shoes we put on horses it's not the hooves themselves making the sound.

    Especially since we know that sound from horseshoes hitting paved roads - neither of which is a particularly likely occurrence here.

    Stealth isnt about just being quiet. Its about not drawing undue attention to yourself.

    You can hide in plain sight dressed in head to white on a dark night that is lit by moonlight (meaning your white clothes basically glow).

    Ive done it.

    The eye sees movement first, then color, then maybe it comes down to your hearing. And only if the noise they are making is somehow out of place or they are being SUPER observant and listening for EVERYTHING.

    Also, Rogues use magic to aid their stealth. So there's that.

    Even in-game this criticism makes no sense. When Tauren and Draenei are running around, I don't hear CLOP-CLOP-CLOP, do you?

    This is more a case of a forum meme capturing a human mind than any critical reasoning.

    Its a dumb argument in a game where you can carry 1000's of pounds in your bag, elephants can jump, giants and gnomes and everyone in between can wear the same gear, animals drop money on death, etc, etc, etc.
