Warcraft Horde Guide- 5 Races
After the destruction of their kingdom in the Third War by the Scourge the High Elves became known as the Blood Elves.
Hawkstrider is the mount for Blood Elves and can be bought at Silvermoon City in Thuron’s Livery. As far as classes, many Blood Elves happen to belong to the Mage and Warlock class and even the Warrior and Hunter classes.
Orcs have a long tradition as Warriors and this in turn is seen in many of their characteristics. For instance they specialize in wielding axes and fight with brute strength. So if this is your playing style then the Orc may be a good match. As an Orc you can belong to the Death Knight, Hunter, Rogue, Shaman, Warlock, and Warrior classes. Worgs, large wolves, serve as the Orcs’ mount.
If your play style favors combat, then another great choice is the Tauren. Thats because not only are they incredibly strong but have great stamina in battle.
One really cool ability of Taurens is called War Stomp. This allows them to communicate with spirits which in turn shake the very Earth and stun their enemies.
The Tauren’s mount choice is limited given their huge size. The Kodo which is a large reptile is one.
Taurens can be Druids, Shamans, Hunters, Warriors, and Death Knights.
The least common race in all of Warcraft are the Trolls. Like the Orcs, their great in combat. Specializing in Throwing Spears, they can also go into Berserker state which gives them spell casting ability and makes their attack speed faster.
Trolls can be Priests, Rogues, Warriors, Mages, Hunters, and Shamans. Raptors serve as the Troll’s mount.
Finally the Undead, also known as Forsaken, can belong to the Death Knight, Mage, Priest, Rogue, Warlock, and Warrior classes. Skeletal Horses serve them as their mount. Two cool things about the Undead is that they don’t breathe so they can stay underwater and they can also gain strength by eating the flesh of other races.
