World Of Warcraft’s Next Expansion Needs These 6 Things

New Faces Take The Spotlight

Generally, it’s been agreed upon that everyone is sick of orcs. Orcs have been in the spotlight since the end of Pandaria, and arguably long before that. We’ve also experienced heavy doses of Draenei, Humans, Elves, Trolls, Undead, and Dwarves at various points in WoW history. Even the goblins got their own city in Draenor with a vital quest hub.

I want to see some of the lesser discussed races step forward. As a Tauren, I’ll always be rather biased toward my fellow cow-kindred, who appear mainly in Mulgore and occasionally in Cataclysm, then largely fade away. The Tauren lore is rich and there are plenty of characters who could step up (I’m personally interested in what the Grimtotem have been up to).

The Tauren aren’t the only ones, of course. Even as a proud member of the Horde, it’s obvious that the Worgen have never gotten their place in the sun. I don’t think I’ve even seen one since the starting zones (though perhaps some of the Humans are actually Worgen…). And the Gnomes! Will they ever take back Gnomeregan? Will we ever see a great, heroic Gnome have more than one or two lines of dialogue beyond the now-obnoxious, “I’m gonna light you up, sweet cheeks!”

Please bring some noise to the quieter races, Blizzard. Orcs are SO last expac.

Next: I'm not saying we should destroy the world again, BUT...
