    If you go by animations, lore, and the fit of armor... blood elf mage. It's not even a contest.

    Their casting animation is top-notch, their society is completely suffused with the Arcane, and there is no race that shows armor better than blood elves.

    The only thing that unfortunately doesn't fit is their racial ability. Arcane Torrent is nice and all but there's some redundancy going on with Spell Steal.

    If by that metric then the only option is Humans, Orcs, and Night Elves. All other races pale in comparison.

    For me it would have to be Humans, Night Elves and Orcs.

    Humans make great Death Knights, popularized by Arthas and look good in everything since there's no clipping. The only classes they don't make sense as are Druids and Shamans.

    Enter Orcs. Orcs are perfect Shamans, along with Warriors and Warlocks as well, thanks to Grom and Gul'dan respectively. They can also rock some plate and cloth.

    Finally, Night Elves are the epitome of Druidism. They also make great Priests and fit every niche but Monk, Shaman and Paladin. This is a hard question though, since it'd be easier to choose four races between both factions. Then again, I guess it doesn't have to apply to both factions, and only I feel I have to play both factions.

    I don't get how people can seriously suggest tauren paladin as "fitting class fantasy best", they are literally the opposite of this...

    I know that their twist of what paladin class is can be interesting/cool/whatever but this thread isn't about "what class/race combo you like most" come on guys... Tauren Paladins... they are so iconic to paladin class they don't even call themselves Paladins!

    Just consider the criteria can be whatever you want. OP mentioned "Great lore, or maybe exceptional animations, or even the way they look in armour"

    Sure, Tauren are clearly not the most iconic paladins. But I personally chose races who gave a wild and interesting twist on the concept.

    So yeah, the question is pretty much about people personal opinions.
