Last week we looked at the top 5 reasons to join the Alliance but we haven’t forgotten the proud members of the Horde. The war between the two has hit full steam and taken the entirety of Azeroth by storm. It’s now more important than ever for them to bolster their forces to lead the charge against the Alliance aggressors. Do you have what it takes to fly the banner of the Horde?
While the Alliance wins visually the Horde wins with might, brawn, and overall good racials. Statistically speaking, you’ll often come out ahead with the Horde when it comes to abilities. Taurens make the best tanks in the game while Goblins have a wide variety of tools built directly into their character. Orcs are a power house and Blood Elves have an AoE interrupt that make them all-stars in PvP. Trolls get a haste cooldown built in and the Undead get a free trinket cooldown.
Of course, if you like that wild look, the Horde has a little bit of everything. They’ve gotten rotten corpses, beastly beasts, dastardly evil looks, and even something pretty (Blood Elves) for those who don’t want to look evil and menacing. So there is a lot of variety and a lot of awesome looks there.
Then you’ve got the lore. Orcs have some of the most fleshed out lore in the game beside Humans and have some of the most touching storylines in the game. The Forsaken have some of the most morally bankrupt quest lines out there. The Trolls have been fleshed out by a large amount as the game has progressed. The only one lacking is the Blood Elves, but they had an entire expansion dedicated to their mistakes.
