Welcome to the Year of the Tauren


The Lunar Festival is well under way in Azeroth. But you might be wondering which animal this year belongs to.

Well my friends, I proclaim this the Year of the Tauren (or Ox)

Great! What’s that mean?

Characters created during the Year of the Tauren tend to evolve into strong leaders. The Tauren is a symbol of reward through perseverance and hard work. Such characters are dependant and level headed. They are able to endure through many wipes knowing full well that is what it takes to achieve their goal. Taurens do not complain. They are calm and collected under pressure.

When coming up with strategy, Taurens tend to work best when they are at peace. Every thought and every action is methodical and systematic often revolving around logic. They are often quiet. But when they speak, everyone listens.

The Tauren does not like to borrow gold because they abhor being in debt. They don’t like obtaining lots of epic mounts or other such status symbols. They prefer the security and stability of being in a guild.

Taurens are honest people. They do not like undercutting or being competitively nasty. When it comes to loot, they are not driven by the prospect of singular or material gain.

When interacting with Taurens, don’t forget that they are social when there is nothing for them to worry about or if they feel unthreatened. Taurens care and love all of their friends but if they become annoyed, they will whip out the Totem of Whupass in anger.

    Funny you should say this. I’m a Tauren and I just posted about my three week journey to obtain the Time-Lost Proto Drake 😀

    I also do old Stratholme at least once a day and still go to Kara once a week with two or three friends just to kill Attumen.

    Megaliss last blog post..No more Time-Lost camping this Proto Drake

  2. 1985 baby!!!

    I partied with my Chinese friends on Sunday and we ate a ton of food and played tennis and frisbee all afternoon 😀

    I even skipped my raid for it 😀
