Using our imagination, if we finally receive Furbolg as a playable race it is just logical that it will be on the Alliance side, just for the exercise, which "native-born to Azeroth" do you think the Horde would acquire?I would say redeemed Centaurs or Satyrs. Alliance has another cute and fluffy ally, and the Horde has another ex-evil partner-in-arms.

I can tell you right now if the Horde accepts the Centaur myself and the rest of the Tauren will be joining the Alliance. The only reason we joined the Horde is because you guys promised protection from the Centaurs who were slaughtering us and taking our land.

On behalf of the Alliance, I call dibs on dryads.http://www.wowwiki.com/Dryad

@Dave, LOL! But the High Elves fight amount the Humans to help eradicate the pest of the Orcs and the primitive Horde. And now they are allies with the Orcs and member of the new Horde. The political view change a lot and not all the member of one race a evil, maybe a faction of the Centaurs at the begging of the war against the Tauren don't angry and were exile and new now rise again, clean by they innate corruption Elune, the Mu'sha, the Titans or others.

@Grovinofdarkhour, from your mouth to the datafiles! That would be sweeeet!
an alliance serves the same purpose so long as understanding between the collective peoples is reached. Of course is Magatha has her way no one will ever seek such an understanding much less peace.

WTB a edit button. @Gravesilence, great idea! I totally see Gnolls as a Horde race, not for nothing of of the most evil archi-villains of the Alliance player its a Gnoll.
Satyrs aren't exactly natural-born, they're night elves turned into demons by the Legion. So it'd be more likely that redeemed ones would go back to their original side... unless of course they follow the blood elf/Forsaken path and are rejected by night elf society and are forced to join the Horde to survive.

Neither of those make much sense. Satyrs are evil, as agents of the Burning Legion. Centaurs were the reason that the Tauren joined the Horde, as they were being wiped out by them.Not too many other races make much sense either. Taunka are basically just Tauren with another skin, Tuskarr can't survive in warm weather, and most other races are evil. The other races, are mostly feral, or already fighting with the Horde, like Kobolds, Gnolls, and Quillboar.I honestly don't know what they could pick from with existing races. The only two left aren't likely either. Ethereals are pretty tied to Outland, and they don't like Goblins much, as they're competition. Plus, I think they're even more neutral than Goblins are, and it would be very unlikely to ally with the Horde or the Alliance. And Pandaren, of course, are a joke race.

I wouldn't say that Furbolgs automatically favor the Alliance. Sure the Furbolgs fought alongside the Night Elves during the first coming of the Burning Legion, but so did the Tauren. There are groups of Furbolgs that have a strong hatred for the Night Elves and their careless actions that caused the great sundering.We learn this during some Alliance quests in Ashenvale:http://www.wowwiki.com/Quest:Raene%27s_Cleansing_(10)I would say it's quite possible that the hatred for the Night Elves could be enough for the Furbolgs to join the Horde.

Give us Ogres. 'Nuff said.
6-30-2010 @ 4:48PM
Ye... Next expansion - Furblogs vs Ogres ... Imagines Ogre ladies .... FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU- Girly bears would be cute tho' !
6-30-2010 @ 5:02PM
Yes, I'm sure the Furbolgs don't mind the Orcs devouring three quarters of Ashenvale in a whirlwind of axes and goblin shredders.

Furbolgs for Alliance,Ogres for Horde!Please make it happen!

Personally, I'd rather see furbolg, ogres, kobolds, gnolls, and such form a third faction, neutral in regards to both Alliance and Horde.

Actually, I'd say that Centaurs for horde is perfectly reasonable. As has been pointed out, the High Elves fought against both the Orcs and the Trolls, yet they've been accepted into the horde. The Forsaken were once the humans of Lorderon who fought against the Orcs, but they're now part of the horde. Just because there were conflicts in the past doesn't mean it's impossible for alliances to be formed in the future between two factions. I think, if anything, the most likely source of redemption for the Centaur would be this fellow: http://www.wowwiki.com/Centaur_PariahHe seeks to unite the Centaur clans that are at war with each other in Desolace. He believes that the centaur should take pride in their origins and live up to their heritage rather than squabbling with each other over the barely-inhabitable lands of Desolace. If anyone could redeem the centaur clans of Desolace, it's him. Also take into account that two of the Desolace tribes are actually factions you can gain rep with in WoW currently. If they were united, it's possible that they would either become a new faction, or potentially a new playable race. Besides, the Desolace centaur tribes are no where near Tauren lands, so it's unlikely that the conflicts with the Tauren involve those particular tribes, anyway.

Hell, if Night Elves are going to allow Mages, which is essentially THE divide that split the High Elves into Blood Elves and Night Elves (i.e.: 'hey channeling all that Arcane magic isn't a good idea'), then why not have Tauren partner up with their longstanding racial enemies, the Centaur tribes?
