Default By popular demand...

Here it is folks. This Thread goes where others don't.

Here are the points for you to argue against
  • Orcs should have Holy Light Paladins, because the interconnectedness of all things is also a shamanic beleif. And they should be better paladins then most Alliance races, due to their fierce unyeilding belief.
  • Because the Draenei are the best at everything ever, they must also be the best at Shamanism, and have a deep connection with the earth that outweighs that of any Tauren or Dwarf.
  • The Pandas are better then everyone else because Katanas.
  • Zul'jin died like the chump he was.
  • I laughed hard at Blizzard making you work for faux Nazis, so Uldum is the best zone and no one cares about the Tol'vir.

Let the comments and discussion fly!

Orcs can't be Paladins.

Just doesn't happen.

And humans should be shamans, for the opposite reason as the orcs. After all, what good light fearin fellow wouldn't want to convert the Elements to the church?

Everlasting life is an inalienable right of any sapient and any government that prevents the attaining of immortality is sentencing its populace to death.

Thrall-sama should totally beat up the ebul Alliance and become their warchief too that way they can all fight the Legion!

I could see humans are more of a religious hermit for other than the Light, maybe some religion we don't know.

Night Elves should regain immortality by sacrificing Malfurion and Maiev to Elunaaru, then share it with the Orcs because totes best friends.

They fit in with the Horde more than the Alliance..

Or would, if it were not for Elunaaru.

I had this idea that some of the orcs might have converted to the Light while in the internment camps, and created a syncretic belief system after liberation. I can't imagine it would have ever gotten very big, and would probably be completely repressed under Garrosh.

Though maybe the orcish Light followers would have found a sanctuary in the Argent Crusade.

Why did you get this idea? Orcs weren't treated that well in the internment camps, so I don't think that they would have adopted the religion of the humans.

No offense, but if I wanted every race to be every class, I'd go play guild wars or star wars.

(star wars has that right?)

1: Ew. No. I wish your mother had aborted you.

2: Meh. Draenei have the best of everything else. They can settler for third best shaman.

3: Again, you should have been aborted.

4: I think his canon death had something to do with him fucking your mother while your grandparents watched.

5: Uldum was fun. Haters hate it because they suck.

When handling hazardous Exxile87, never forget your protective gear, gloves and breathing apparatus.

Draenei should be allowed to be warlocks. At the character creation screen, you can choose eredar skin tones if you picked warlock.

Lore-wise they'd be outcasts viewed with a mixture of scorn and pity by other draenei, because they made the ultimate sacrifice (from a dreanei point of view) by embracing fel magic to better protect their people.

MAKE IT SO.
