I mean if you like RPing with yourself then I would say yes, that's a good idea.
historians distrust large-scale models.
Yes, yes, and more yes! Thank you! As a U.S. historian who maintains a hobby level interest in the Roman Empire, it boils my blood when I hear people say things like, "The U.S. is kinda like the Roman Empire!" Or, "We need to stop deficit spending! It's how Rome died!"
Shut up and read a book for once. The United States and Rome have similarities in the sense that they're comprised of humans who made an empire and made human mistakes. There's no similarity in how the empires were built or run, cultural influence exists only in the sense that almost all western European culture is influenced by the Romans, and there are about a billion factors that caused the Roman Empire to collapse, you can't point to a single one and say, "See! I found the problem!"
Rant aside, this all definitely applies to WoW. Azeroth is a fantasy setting who uses real life civilizations as a baseline for establishing racial cultures. Their histories to not align and no single civilization matches any race or kingdom in Warcraft perfectly.
