Default One Race

If you were forced to make all of characters one race, losing out on the classes that race couldn't be what would it be?

This isn't a favorite race thread as some races have more options than others.

Either human, since they have so many options and I can live without shaman and druid characters, or night elf for DH goodness. I'd miss my paladins if I chose the latter option, but I simply can't stand the new blood elf model.

(My poor troll shaman and night elf druid must hate me now. )

Trolls, because really, who needs paladins? And Demon Hunters are just Warlocks with addiction problems.

You'll just race change your Troll into something like you always do, and you'll change the druid into worgen when you get new models.

Also what's wrong with blood elves?

Too skinny. They only look acceptable in bulky, plate armour.

(The druid 'll probably stay a night elf. As long as all druids are taught night elf teachings druid is a night elf class, like DHs.)

Pansies with an awkward obsession for tight clothing.

If you want an actual lore reason, they're a magic addicted endangered species with massive egos and gluttony problems. If I were the good Ranger General or Lady of Light, I'd have a moratorium on fighting and feasting and a mandate on fucking. Only way they'll ever survive the century.

Dwarves versus Trolls is the best sequel to Orcs versus Humans.

Strongest racial identities with the greatest class variance, and the cultural flexibility to expand into classes they don't currently own.

Me personally, I picked Dwarves. WTB Paladin Ram Mount.

As though you even need to ask.

But seriously, the Trolls have traditions dating back thousands of years even for the two classes to which they don't have access. They've had pseudo-paladins by way of the freethinkers, and demon hunters at least as long as Illidan by way of the Zandalari demoniacs, who were eating demons to consume their power before it was cool.

I don't think this is a thing as much as you want it to be a thing.

The Freethinkers seem a bit unclear. What I understood from the quests was the the Freethinkers were a Gurubashi organization of heretics that stood against the rise of Hakkar, and were exterminated for their trouble, with the zandalari honoring the legacy and thus recognizing that non-dogmatic believers have a place in the tribe. The paladin is only compared to a freethinker because he is (in the eyes of the zandalari) a heathen that stands against Hakkar.

That said, there was Arcanital Mara'kah on the Isle of Thunder, who definitely possessed light-based abilities.

Well it's not impossible to be a priest to learn martial combat, but people have a different idea when it comes to being a paladin.

I voted night elf but on further consideration I think I'd choose troll. Everything but paladin, the class that's most thematically boring to me, and DH which is "meh".

Goblins, because I don't care about Paladins, Druids, or Monks. They have a nice aesthetic and are psychologically malleable. Also, who doesn't love being a pint-sized powerhouse?
