This lasted long enough for me to log in and for some reason go to The Barrens. That was a serious mistake.
Seeing Camp Taurajo in ruins, finding Mankrik rampaging his way through quillboars, one-shotting Alliance sappers across the battlefield that was once the Field of Giants ... I don't know what it is about my tauren, but the second I play him, I forget I've got a much more highly geared, achievements-out-the-wazoo, heroic-ICC-killing draenei out there. I don't really feel this way about any other Horde race. But when I log on a tauren, I immediately feel at home, and so now I'm happily leveling through Hyjal and Vashj'ir and thinking it's time I gave his live-server self some attention.
What I'm saying is that tauren are awesome, and I suggest you roll one. You can be paladins soon! And priests! Man, tauren priests are just the epitome of awesome.
