The Top Ten

1 Night Elf Night Elf

Night elf is cool

Dude night elfs do froont flips when they jump, they look awesome, they can be druids, they make sweet rogues and hunters - lesse10

They look cool, and they make lit druids

2 Human

The most boring race to chose - Megad0rk

"Let's play as humans cause we're humans in we're life! Duh-huh! " Oi...I'm sorry, but for me, humans are the most overrated race in the Warcraft universe. In my opinion, they are way too up themselves and their storylines are uninteresting to me. - tonyb500

It is the best for Ranged casting classes like mage and warlock. Humans are the best because that's what we are and we should support that. Its not like were tauren or elves. WE ARE HUMAN! - Jahed1234

3 Dwarf

Keep yer feet on the ground.

They have really funny/badass accents and they'd make great warriors/paladins.

4 Tauren

Better than humans. Almost better than night elves. - Bliss

They're big bulls and awesome! They can't be number ten!

I like taurens, unique and COWS - Harri666

5 Worgen

They might be real monsters :/

Why isn't worgen number one? Worgen are awesome! I don't get what people hate about them. As a fan of werewolves (the ones that actually look like wolves), I adore this race.

Worgen makes are hot. Then can shapeshift to human and The campaign is awesome

They could shapeshift to humans. They get incresed crit, fast skinners. And they get dark flight

6 Orc Orc

Go Orc or Go Home!

They are big green killing machines

Thanks! Please share your opinion:

They make great hunters due to their racials like berzerk make great warriors and the extra pet dmg makes an orc hunter a strong adversary

7 Pandaren

Love the tranquility of the turtle island. You get zen tp. Plus monks can dd tank or heal.

Panda power!

The most unique in my opinion.

8 Troll

Da voodoo shuffle mon

Trolls are the best mon

Trolls are better then every other race.

9 Draenei

The Draenei are beautiful. Not to mention they have Russian voice actors. :D

There just right and easy to build up level

There design is flawless

I had, and still have, the most fun with Draenai. Heck, they were the first of the new 2 races I've played once because came out.

10 Gnome


Who doesn't like little people!

The Contenders

11 Blood Elf Blood Elf

Coolest race for each class. Hands down.

The sexiest race in the whole game

Great for killing magic enemies.


12 Goblin
13 Naga
14 Nightborne
15 Zandalari Troll
16 Lightforged Draenei
