With the help of the quilboar it took ten thousand years to drive them to the brink. That is the longest war between mortals in the History of Azeroth.
The Quilboar didn't help the centaurs. They war was with each other. In a similar situation to what the op stated.
Now tell me...
Which race nearly went extinct?
Tauren have adopted much of there tech from the Horde but it has become part of there culture now allowing them to create things like the Great Lift and explosives which are far superior to oil bombs. Tauren have air forces they as they befriended Wyverns years ago.
You mean the bombs the Grimtotem used in the shattering, so you count even enemy tech as your own.
And before you even say itBiane bought his bombs from goblins.
Tauren are not slow to anger to the point one whole tribe had to be destroyed to fight a war. All it took for them to start killing dwarves was them digging on there land they didn't even kill anyone.
That was all
He hatched the plan sense no one else would. His people to happy to forgive and forget.
Their are Tuaren take action, but they not the norm, they are the exception
They turned away from Druidism because they liked Shamanism more they didn't just forget. Tauren remember the hunt of Malorne where they nearly ran down and slew a demigod and that was thousands of years before the War of the Ancients. The tails of the War of the Ancients would not have been forgotten.
They forget because they are a short lived race. Who don 't know how to write things down.
And the Malorne hunt seems to be the only thing they remember.
Maybe it's because they did something that was bad.
Fighting a war on two fronts for ten thousand years is most definitely something to be proud of the barrens tribes were in bad shape but they were still fighting.
They were running, desperate. In the shaman manga it showed that they were so driven to desperation that they tried to raise an island from the sea to escape the marauding centaur, only to have the raising water flood the land. Killing more of them and thier game.
What I am saying is, the Tuaren so conservative in the magic, yet justified a spell that only one other person ever casted.
And the person is Gul'dan, darkness incarnate himself.
And that is desperation, not battle.
This is all pointless because the Shadow Pan broke them in a few days while fighting the Mantid. They did well against the farmers but when the warriors came they continued to lose all the way back to the steppes.
You mean the Demi god players Seriously. No god, no undead, no sha can stand against us, what makes you think the Yuagal can.
You paint the Tauren as peaceful hippies that would lay down and die before fighting but that's far from the truth. When Carine found out what happened to Hamuul Runetotem he flew into a rage and challenged Garrosh to a Mak'gora to the death. His son Bane fought to reclaim Thunderbluff and now is actively building a rebellion to take Garrosh out. Tauren do not shy away from battle and war.
Biane is not building a rebellion. Vol'jin is doing the groundwork. Baine is just their and will probably show up At the last moment.
The truth is, tides of war presented them a light that made the out to be apathetic and cold to the feelings of their own people. Concerned more for the suffering of an enemy, then thier own
Baine gives lip service, and tells people how they should act. Ignoring how they feel.
And that is why they will and should lose a three way war. When a race hold ideas as greater in value then the people they meant to serve. They don't deserve the latter.
