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