Path: Playable Races :: Orcs
The savage, green-skinned Orcs are one of the most prolific races of Azeroth. They are commonly believed to be brutal and mindless, possessing no humanity or empathy for other races. Born on the hellish world of Draenor, the Orcs were brought into the kingdom of Stormwind through the dimensional gateway known as the Dark Portal and forced to wage war on the Humans. Although few are aware of their history, the Orcs once cultivated a noble, Shamanistic society on the world of Draenor. Tragically, the proud Orc clans were corrupted by the Burning Legion and used as pawns in the Legion's invasion of Azeroth. The Orcs managed to rebel, however, and they were ultimately able to help turn the tide against their demon masters. Led by the young Warchief, Thrall, the Orcs have reclaimed their strength and honor. Now, the Orcs stand ready to fight not for the sake of conquest, but for their right to survive in their adopted world.

Love the lore. Durotar is also my favorite starting zone.

The great and powerful Orcs, Master fighters and the embodiment of strength :] Though their character model is somewhat ugly, even for orcs :/

Misunderstood with a tained past.. Great lore, most of the high-profile characters are also great [ahem Garrosh cough]. Thinking about faction-changing my Draenei hunter to an Orc =D

I don't see why people complain that the draenei came on a spaceship, the orcs came through a stargate!

Too true. I think it's hurtage over the (minor) retcon. (Never mind that there's also a minor retcon behind orcs...and there will pretty much HAVE to be a string of minor retcons behind worgen.)

Tied for second favorite Horde race (even if I despise Garrosh Hellscream).
