For simplicity's sake I roll most allied dudes (Mag'har, etc) into their basic !@#$% races respectively since they're essentially the same ^-*!.

I agree with most of your list, but I would switch pandaren and dwarves and drag worgen down to trash tier!

EDIT: you forgot Draenei btw, they're also trash tier!
Divine Tier:
Tauren
Gnomes
Dwarves
Zandalari

You're pretty good Tier:
Forsaken
Panda
Goblins (with new models)
Kul Tirans

Mediocre Tier:
Orcs
Humans
Belf
Troll
Dark Iron
Nightborne
Night Elves
Mag'har

Bad Tier:
Draenei (normal + lightforged)
Worgen

Untouchable Tier:
Void Elves

I don't know why this is needed, because fans of those races which you will put to the end of the list will fill bad...

As if people in this forum scurry to protect each other's feelings from being hurt. If you're going to post anything on the internet, you need to thicken up your skin.

In fact, I'm just giggling at the 'least liked' races of some people. Of course some people despise Forsaken when they're (or at least their leader is) being set up as the primary antagonist. I'm quite sure that those same people would have probably had 'Orc' at the very bottom during MoP-WoD, when we were over-saturated with Orcish nonsense instead of Forsaken nonsense.
Void Elves should feel bad, honestly. I don't know what Blizzard were thinking when they made that race.

That video title is wrong, Garithos wasn't a racist, just a realist.

And what happened when Lord Garithos finally trusted a filthy elf? He was "rewarded" with a knife in his back.

I meant that when you hear "troll", you don't by default think of Aztecs/ Inkas/ Mayan style.
You don't think of a race that is slender, has tusks and crazy hairstyles.
Trolls in other fantasy games looked like Ogres. This is why it makes them stand out, they dared to use a design that breaks the stereotype.

With elves the last time I saw "breaking the stereotype" was in Harry Potter.
First time where we don't see prettier, more agile, long lived, wiser human with longer ears and magic/ nature affitnity.
This poster is a fellow titan of the mind.

Trolls of all kinds are indeed the race that sets Warcraft apart from other fantasy settings. Even within the race, the various tribes and civilizations have their own flavours of culture. It's no wonder that players choose to roleplay as all sorts of different trolls beyond Darkspear. They're so versatile, you can do both high society and post apocalyptic hellscape as a troll. They're fleshed out and at the same time maintain a mystery that lots of Warcraft lore has lost.

They even do the ancient civilization thing better than elves. Drawing upon the aesthetic and culture of the Aztecs, Romans, pre and post colonial Africa and Jurassic Park is far better than generic magical spires.

Anyway, here's my tier list.

Darkspear
Zandalari

MID TIER:

LOW TIER:

Sandscalp
Skullsplitter
Winterax
Icetusk
Witherbranch
Nazmani

TRASH TIER:

It's Winterax you absolute DISGRACE.

Otherwise agreed.

1) Humans (this includes Kul Tiran Humans)

--HUGE GAP--

2) Dwarves

--HUGE GAP--

3) Kalimdor Horde races
4) Every Elven race
5) Worgen
6) Forsaken

--HUGE GAP--

7) Joke races (Gnomes/Goblin/Pandaren)

If I forgot to mention any race, It's because they weren't important enough for me to care about them.


Wait Arctur, you rate Dwarves higher than Worgen? The group of humans with an affliction?

I thought you liked humans?

He probably relied too much on the truism "only a dead elf is a good elf".

Thanks, Akalazoo. I've updated the post.

If I might say so as an Elf-fan: That absolutely made my day. :D
The Troll supremacists on this thread are giving Arctur a run for his money.

Thanks, Akalazoo. I've updated the post.

In order to make up for your crime, you must post a list of at least thirty Loa to prove that you are still knowledgeable of troll lore.

Within the hour, to prove that you aren't just looking it up.

Chop chop!

Worgen are not Humans anymore. They have tainted the sacred Human Potential™ that they were given at birth. They are the greatest sinners in the world.

Give them a break. Literally no one cares about Trolls in the game, and Vol'jin and the Darkspear are basically a meme at this point, so let them have their fun on the forums.

Hey no Troll support here, I can’t stand them either. I just think it’s admirable that you so strongly support such an inferior race. I mean, those pale skinny little things need someone to champion their cause after all, right?

Heck, our females have the build of their males, the poor things. Can you imagine?

I think it’s certainly sweet that such a puny race aspire to one day be at the Apex predator level of the Orcs. It’s inspiring stuff.
