Do you still play WoW?  All the new bells and whistles have passed me by.

 although, I'm seriously considering restarting my account when the classic servers come online.

Yep still do!








Gotta represent still the POC that can play with the best of these White gamers.. 8) Oh and in case you forgot, this character I modeled off my wife, she can play dress-up with her, and in turn, I play in peace....most of the time.. ::)

^They do need more diversity in hair textures though...a tad too euro-centric... hopefully with this new expansion they are going to address that, since its come up quite a bit at the last few Blizzcon's...and YES Afrocentric fantasy/sci fi DOES exist....

These are some good examples:








You get the picture... ;)

One thing that has always kind of bugged me about WoW is that humanoid (Humans, Dwarves, and Gnomes) culture is based on European culture and that the game mostly models non-human races on non-European cultures.

Orcs = African/Mongolian/Viking hybrid 
Trolls = African/Caribean/Native South American
Tauren = Native American
Night Elves = Asian (Japanese)
Pandaran = Asian (Chinese)

Is that a fact or a theory like the Lord of The Rings, racists say the Orcs are Blacks but it turns out the writer meant them to be Nazis...

It's not set in stone or anything, but if you play the game enough it becomes pretty obvious. The Trolls speak with Jamaican accents and use Vodoo, The Orcs are shirtless noble "savages" whose home city is on a dusty savannah, The Pandarans are martial artists who are indistinguishable from Kung-Fu Panda.

Whats even odder, is there is currently an existing  Non-playable (so far) humanoid proto-race called Vyrkryls, that are the ancestors of humans in Azeroth. They are mostly like viking/norse lore...just much larger...

Also don't forget the Dreanai race, which, by looks are like centuars, but sound like a cross between Indian/and eastern-bloc Europeans.. ???
Oh, and Goblins too...they all sound like they are from NYC... ::)

If you do come back, let me know... I play mainly for Alliance and I'm on the U.S. Uther Server.
