Is the grass greener on the other side?

Anyways….Troutwort has a very nice “What if” post.

Take a look here: Epic Moustaches

Copying off of Trout..I wonder what my toons would be if I was on the other side.

Liyhe (priest – F blood elf): Hmmm. Probably would have been a spacegoat! /waggle! (as much as I like it…can only take so much)

Orangeslice (paladin – F blood elf): Human.

Melonslice (druid – F Tauren): Night Elf, especially with the change to ToL….thank god. :)

Velineda (mage – F blood elf): Human.

Ifurita (rogue – F blood elf): Worgen.

Thormgrim (DK -in a moment of craziness i made a male orc): Worgen.

^all female toon of course, well maybe not the rogue and the DK. Male Worgen are teh cool.

Only issue with some of the alliance races is their cast animation…look odd to me. However, this is because I have played nothing but horde. Then again…all casting animations besides Blood Elves look odd to me. Orcs look like they are slapping things. Trolls look like they are throwing a Ha-Do-Ken (sp). Forsaken look odd….Taruen look like they are doing the wave or shooting a spirit bomb (wrath). Humans….are they posing for a dance off? Dont recall gnome or dwarf casting. Dranei look like they are in pain with some casting and at other times looks like they are doing tai chi??? Night elves…remind me of COWS—lets do the wave, or lets shoot a spirit bomb (wrath).

The Alliance toons…well the males….look like gorillas lol. A little too top heavy? But then again…that is on both sides. However for some reason it makes the males on the alliance side it looks off?
To me it gives off too much of a bestial nature and seems out of line with many of the ideals of the alliance? If there were a difference between humans (barabarians and city humans) it would make more sense, but humans in WoW to be one homogeneous race.

In trouts comments, someone mentioned home: I am not sure if I would call either side “home” I prefer the look of the Horde characters overall more, but I prefer the Alliance areas looks. I tend to like things that are more orderly, civilized, and less chaotic. (Silvermoon being the oddball). The time did spend as Alliance in Choice was a good time indeed. The alliance cities do not seem oddly placed out as some of the Horde Cities. (Thunder Bluff and Org) *cough* Alliance towns feel more like towns and cites rather then nomadic dwellings or sewers….. (exception of Silvermoon) ALSO THE BAR AREA THE ALLIANCE HAS IN DALARAN IS BETTER THEN THE HORDE ONE!!!! THEY HAZ A BEER GARDEN!

Anyways…no matter how it looks, grass is going to be greener on the other side. :P

There are elements on both factions that I like. If there were high elves on Alliance, I would faction change!

    When Cataclysm came out, I was almost sure it would be high elves and not Worgen. I like the worgen, it’s cool, but I thought maybe it would be the rebirth of the high elves as there were some straggling around and maybe it was time they came back as a race, but I guess there were far too few for that to happen, but apparently after Gnomeregan was asploded there were only 3,000 gnomes left, but they still seem to be everywhere, slippery little buggers!

    I’m going to try some horde for fun again eventually, because I like leveling and there’s SO much new stuff to see in the world. Though Koala didn’t tell me Drak’Tharon was PvP!!! I r teh scared!

      Yeah, I was hoping for H elves but with them not being in it I can understand as they would be like bloodelves without the green eyes, but in the novels

      She plays such a major role. I wonder why they neglect the High elves as such. And PVP on Drak is not that bad..I think I can still count the times I have been ganked on 2 hands. But me ganking others…still cracks me up, like a silly human mage who thought they could take me and Koala. Mass Dispel > Ice block.

      Trout, seriously, the only person who gets ganked on Drak is me.

      Doesn’t matter where I am, if I am alone, I will get ganked.

      You’ll be fine. AND if someone tries to hurt ya just call in the reinforcements (aka Zug) and they won’t bother you again. :D

        Or say something that includes the words ‘Sorak’ and ‘Warstomp’ and they will die laughing.

    Well of course we have a beer garden, we have dwarves! Not that it matters, no one goes to Dal anymore anyway.

    Trout … DTK is PvP but it’s like … 10 to 1 Horde or something. I have only been ganked once and no one has bothered me since. Oh, ok, there was that one low level nelf druid that tried to gank my baby troll druid in Nighthaven … the guards turned him into a wisp so fast that he was dead before I realized what had happened. heh

      lol but still you have a beer garden!!! Tis not fair.

      Also the architecture in Stormwind I really like a lot. Reminds me I am not sure why germany or switzerland?

        I was mining in Quel’Danas this weekend (Khorium) and my roommate came in and said it’s so pretty! I said it’s where the blood elves are, and she (never played WoW) says, oh, the gay ones right? O.o

        Though I liked their architecture too. Night elves had potential with architecture but the only really good buildings ended up being the Inns. The other buildings in Darnassus are just lacking something…like walls perhaps.
