A Look At The World of Warcraft Character The Taurens

Aug 18, 2007
The Tauren are huge, bestial creatures (males average 7.5 feet) who live in the grassy, open barrens of central Kalimdor. They live to serve nature and maintain the balance between the wild things of the land and the restless spirit of the elements and heed the will of their goddess, the Earth Mother. She is the harmony of nature itself. Some conjecture that she may be a manifestation of the legendary Alextrassa, the red dragon Aspect of life.

Despite their enormous size and brute strength, the remarkably peaceful Tauren cultivate a quiet, tribal society. However, when roused by conflict, Tauren are implacable enemies who will use every ounce of their strength to smash their enemies under hoof. Under the leadership of their ancient chief, Cairne Bloodhoof, the Tauren allied themselves with the Orcs during the invasion of the Burning Legion. The two races have remained steadfast allies ever since. Like the Orcs, the Tauren struggle to retain their sense of tradition and noble identity. Their new home is Thunder Bluff atop a flat mesa-life peak in Mulgore. The tauren revel in their new city and enjoy the peace and security of a standing military.

After the invasion of the Orc homeland of Durotar was repelled (as depicted in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne), Cairne, with the help of the Horde, united the tribes of Tauren and settled his weary people in a new homeland, the lush plains of Mulgore. The capital city there is Thunder Bluff, built on a series of mesas. At present, the Tauren are still ruled by Cairne Bloodhoof. However, even Cairne admits that he is unusually old for a Tauren (ninety-nine years old when he first joined the Horde), and the leadership of the Tauren may thus change very soon. Common wisdom hold that his successor will likely be Cairne's own son, Baine Bloodhoof, but, at this time, such talk is simply speculation, particularly with the emergence of Elder Crone Magatha and her tribe, the Grimtotems, a tribe usually a distinctive midnight black in coloring as a member of the Council of Thunder Bluff. The Tauren continue to supply fierce warriors and wise shaman to the Horde, and are currently involved in the renewed conflict on Azeroth.

Under the Horde Faction the Taurens are strong assets in the battle against the Alliance, with 4 classes which taureens can choose from: Hunter, Shaman, Warrior and Druid. Starting locations for the Taurens are the Red Rock Mesa and Mulgore and their home city is Thunderbluff they mount Kodos and Wyvern.

Here are their Racial Traits:

Endurance - Max Health increased by 5%.

Cultivation - +15 Herbalism Skill
