Since the Kalimdor Centaur are the only ones that have appeared in the games, I think the vast majority of searches and links will be destined for that article. I would support the article that has been moved to Centaur (Kalimdor) being moved back to Centaur, which can contain a link to Centaur (Eastern Kingdoms).--Aeleas 09:54, 11 April 2006 (EDT)

I've made the move back.--Aeleas 00:42, 15 April 2006 (EDT)

Other Centaur LegendsEdit

Abosolutely love how the 2006, Horde Player's Guide used the concept of Flavor Lore to further expand on the legend of Cenarius being the direct father of the Centaur, and even gave an expanded version of the legend, as told by the taurens. Its neat to see that not every culture believes the same creation storiesBaggins 03:30, 17 November 2006 (EST)

NecromancersEdit

Is it okay that I added necromancer as a class. I mean I've seen their necromancers in Desolace, and I think I've seen a few articles saying they were. I know I've made an editing mistake before, so I'm not really sure if I should keep it or leave it. Mr.X8 21:23, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Seems fair.Baggins 21:30, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Place of origin Edit

Note the centuars aren't native to the barrens hailing from Desolace. They just moved there to destroy the tauren. Zarnks 06:07, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Druids? Edit

Since when can Centaur be druids? They may be offsprings of Cenarius, but has anyone ever seen anything in-game that makes you think there exist Centaur druids? --Odolwa 17:22, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

In the RPG thy have weak druid powers that they use to control nature.--SWM2448 21:47, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
Read Druid races.Baggins 21:48, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
Also, the Stormers in the Barrens summon storms of lightning that cause AoE damage around the area it was cast (sort of like Blizzard, or Rain of Fire), as well as casting lightning bolts. This seems pretty druidic to me, but I suppose it might also be considered shamanistic. --NocturnalKaos

Image Edit

I've changed the main image: it's still not that good, I'm thinking of going to Desolace tonight to get a proper screenie. --Liliath 19:13, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

Well, official artwork for infoboxes is preferred. I could see if I can find something from the sourcebooks.Baggins 19:17, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

Done. Zakolj 19:00, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

Culture before Tribes/ClansEdit

I think that the Culture section should be before the Tribes/Clans section. Leave a comment if you agree or disagree. Zakolj 19:00, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

I think I agree as well. We do that on most other pages.Baggins 19:02, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

Actually I'm thinking of doing some adjustments to the clan section, and splitting most of it off to its own page. Much like was done for other race pages.Baggins 19:04, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

I moved the Culture section and I think the levels, famous/named and classes need to be just in the clan pages. Zakolj 19:08, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

Bastard Offspring of Cenarius Edit

It's mentioned several times in this artical (Acording to the myths) the the Centaurs are the bastard off spring of Cenarias and the Dryads are the female offspring. Which meaning of Bastard does it mean? Is it the killing Kenny type of bastard or the birth before marring? Secondly what about the centaur that are not bastards what are they??--The last Alterac 06:53, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

What meaning do you think it is... Warchiefthrall 21:20, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

What I ment was, if all the the femail centaur that are not bastards Dryads, and all the bastards are centaur. What about the mail ones that are not bastards?--The last Alterac 05:50, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Well it could be the male dryads! What are they called.. Keeper of the.. something, something Groovey, that is.. try and guess Alterac! -Rovdyr (talk) 14:52, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Lost Civilization Edit

Although the centaur in WoW live in very primative villages, they appear to have had a civilization at one point. The ruins in and around Maraudon and the Gelkis Village don't have any obvious makers (they're not Night Elf, and are too simple to be Titan), and the file names for them are Centaur_Ruins, so it appears they're ancient Centaur stone buidings. Also, the centaur statues in Mara indicate that they had skilled artisans at one point, unless they made other races do it of course, but they'd have to have the appreciation for it to begin with anyway.

So it appears that they had a civilization at one point. Also, they're not that primitive in WoW, they have complex armour, clothing and centaur-sized weaponry for example.--Mannerheim 01:32, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Well officially there is a titan connection to the ruins, terramok was a titan vault.Baggins (talk) 19:44, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Centaur Remains Edit

I didn't want to edit the main page, since I'm pretty new, and didn't think it my place, but the Centaur skin rugs can also be found throughout the city of Orgrimmar, as well as many of the Kalimdor settlements of the orcs and tauren. Not too surprising considering their close contact with the savages. I want to say you can see them used in the Tauren tents, as well, but I'd have to go have a look around to make sure. I know for sure they can be found all over Orgrimmar. --NocturnalKaos

They're found everywhere, even in Outland (in orge huts), even though centaurs don't exist in outland. User:Coobra/Sig3 02:01, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Language Edit

I can understand the centaur from the Eastern Kingdoms speaking Low-Common or Common, but how do the ones from Kalimdor? Unless there was some secret trade between humans and centaur that exposed them to the language while keeping the continent's existence secret from the public, it is silly to think they speak Common. They would probably speak some form of Taurahe or, more likely, a version of Darnassian (because of their relationship to Cenarius). It's also possible, because they are related to the Earth Elemental Princess Theradras that they speak Terran. Pretty much, they could speak anything BUT Common. ~ Grudgham (talk) 19:16, 14 September 2008 (UTC)


They speak "Low Common" because that's what the RPG says they do. Some speak Krenkese. In anycase the Common derived languages appear to be a derivative of the Titan language, and Common is treated as a kind of "universal" language. Did you ever notice in Warcraft III when players first reached Kalimdor everyone knew how to communicate there? The orcs could automatically speak to the tauren, the orcs and night elves could speak to each other, humans and night elves could speak to each other, etc, etc. That's because everyone was using Common. They each had their own languages, but they could communicate with each other by using Common.Baggins (talk) 19:22, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

The Centaur Edit

Should 'the centaur' be capitalized? Potato1 (talk) 12:28, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

He wasn't capitalized in the book, so no.Baggins (talk) 18:08, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
