Rant : WoW races (Warning contains wow Lore)


I cannot believe I'm doing this again...

...I keep getting in to truly geeked out arguments about the various Warcraft races or to be more precise WTF is going on with them all.
Now as we know Orc's and Dreni are aliens from what is now known as outlands, and rumour has it that Nightelfs are nothing more than evolved Trolls (and by extension Bloodelfs are evolved from Nightelves) and if warcraft lore is to be believed Humans are evolved Troggs (sheesh) and Dwarfs are basically mini titans left behind after the well of eternity exploded.

But what of the mighty Tauren?

Oddly Tauren are the only race in Warcraft lore that simply has no real origin. The Tauren or Shu'halo are known to be nomads and have walked Azeroth since the dawn of time and that they simply refused to take part in the "War of the Ancients" choosing only to defend Azeroth herself (whom they refer to as the Earthmother) and in the process joining forces with the remnants for the centaur race and in turn developing modern Druidism which in turn Centaurus (High Lord and now Demi God) took to his now immortal children the Night Elfs and turned ther focus from the corrupting influence of Arcane magic towards nature and Druidism.

As for where the Tauren came from...well...your guess is as good as mine...it seems that they are the first True sentient race on Azeroth and basically the inventors of Druid magic forms...

....ether that or we have some sick b*stards out there with a cow fetish....
None the less i hope this puts a few role players in there place, as frankly I'm sick of hearing about it...
