Moose Tauren

And, okay, the other new races too. New races in World of Warcraft are always a cause for excitement, but this time Blizzard has put an interesting twist on how they work. Each faction is getting three new races (with more possibly on the way later) that they can recruit to their side via quests. Once recruited, you can then create a level 20 character of that race and level it up as normal, with a special set of armor available once it reaches level 110.

I may be biased as a member of the Horde, but with the exception of the neat, spooky Dark Iron Dwarves, the Horde clearly got the better races. We’re recruiting the Nightborne, the Highmountain tauren, and the Zandalari trolls to our cause. All three character designs look fabulous, and certainly unique enough to warrant being their own race rather than a reskin of an old one. Let me have my moose antlers, Blizzard!
