Race/Class Iconic Matches?

Postby bldavis » Sat May 25, 2013 9:27 am

ok, this is from a But Wait, Theres Lore! from last week?
so total credit to them for the idea

what is the ideal race/class combination?
each race can only be used for one class, and each class can only have one race
11 classes, 13? races so there will be some races not represented
just as a reminder
Races: classes:
Human Paladin
Dwarf Warrior
Night Elf Druid
Gnome Monk
Draenei Death Knight
Worgen Warlock
Hunter
Pandaren Mage
Rogue
Orc Shaman
Troll Priest
Tauren
Foresaken
Blood Elf
Goblin

for my list, i would go with
Class: Race:
Paladin Human
Warrior Orc
Druid Night Elf
Monk Panderan
Death Knight Foresaken
Warlock Blood Elf
Hunter Troll
Mage Gnome (not first pick, but Blood Elf was used)
Rogue Worgen
Shaman Tauren
Priest Draenei

so, thoughts?
what are your picks?
think i am wrong?
DISCUSS!!!! :D

Brekkie:Tanks are like shitty DPS. And healers are like REALLY distracted DPS
Amirya:Why yes, your penis is longer than his because you hit 30k dps in the first 10 seconds. But guess what? That raid boss has a dick bigger than your ego.
Flex:I don't make mistakes. I execute carefully planned strategic group wipes.
Levie:(in /g) It's weird, I have a collar and I dont know where I got it from, Worgen are kinky!
Levie:Drunk Lev goes and does what he pleases just to annoy sober Lev.

Blood Elf Hunter.
The best bowmen ever to walk on Azeroth were the Blood Elf rangers.

Blood Elf Bloodknight / PseudoPaladin
Traditional wardens of Quel'danas and the King/Regent

Orc Warrior.
High Overlord Saurfang. 'nuff said.

Tauren Druid.
Self-explanatory

Troll Shaman.

Undead deathknight

but that is only 5 classes and 4 races...
what about the other 6 classes and you arent supposed to share races with more than one class! :roll:

i completely agree with the orc
tauren druid? yes but the Nelves taught the taurens druidism so...
troll - my second choice for shaman as well

Blood Knight - strong choice for paladin

but the belf rangers- yes great bowmen, but not really a hunter - no pet
if they made MM a pet free spec, i would concede the point on that one as well and would have to rework my list

Can't really think of a class that fits with a goblin.

Human Paladin (even though Horde is my main faction)
Blood Elf Warlock
Undead Death Knight (kind of a cheat)
Orc Shaman
Dwarf Warrior
Goblin Rogue
Gnome Mage
Draenei Priest
Pandaren Monk (duh)
Night Elf Druid
Of the rest, they all have better fits than hunter (troll shaman/druid, tauren shaman (druid?), worgen (fury) warrior). But I'll go with
Troll Hunter

If it had been high elves instead of blood elves, they could be the hunter. But I think warlock fits the Blood Elf ethos so well. I wouldn't mind switching around tauren, orcs and dwarfs (tauren shaman, orc warrior, dwarf out) either, but to me Thrall has always been the iconic shaman.

Thanks to the cinematic sequences for vanilla and TBC:

Dwarf Hunter (with gun and bear)
Draenei Paladin/Vindicator (with tome on a chain and big honkin mace)... despite humans being so involved because of the paladin orders, that cinematic was awesome. Also, I don't care if it's a re-colored paladin... I want a class called 'Vindicator'. Or even a title. I don't care.

Dammit, you're right. Guess it's Dwarf Hunter, Tauren Shaman, Orc Warrior. But that leaves two problems...

1) Who's the Priest? (Idontknow is the tank, we're not talking about him.)
2) Now I need to send my baby dwarf hunter that boa archy gun, find a proper transmog for it and then go back to Dun Morog and get a bear...

i have dat mace, with T2 recolor...on my dwarf
it isnt QUITE the same lol

i agree about the dwarves and hunters
trolls fit better lore wise, but dwarves are a close second

with draenei pally, human priests?

and touche Shoju :)
i was expecting you to say something like that (and if i was to remake my dk, i would make him a troll as well as most of my other toons)

Undead DK - dispense with the whole died reinc, died DK convolutions
Dwarf Hunter - it's like in the opening credits laddie
Troll Shaman - I think trolls and shamanism just go together
Nelf Druid - they did invent it after all
Pandaren Monk - same again
Human Paladin - Uther, need I say more
Orc Warrior - I don't want my orcs all thinky... thrall was an anachronism
Gnome Mage - gnomes are just mages man.
Belf Mage - iconic magic users
Worgen Warlock - locks had me a bit stuck, it was worgen or orc (shadow council)
Tauren Druid - also iconic druids
Draenei Priest - the light is fundamental to their society so this or paladin.
Goblin Rogue - consummate thieves

I cheated and doubled up on 2 classes. If forced I would drop tauren druids and gnome mages.
