Types of Humanoid

That is your opinion about civilized, less civilized, rock crafted, and elfkind Opinions do not belong in Wiki encyclopedias. Neutral Point of Views must be kept at all times. --DarkTichondrias

I agree on civilized part. The "Elven decended"/"Titan Created"/"From Draenor"/"From Argus"/"Decendants of Cenarius" is better. Can we go back to the subctagories?--Scalp 14:05, 27 July 2006 (EDT)

Pandarans & Highborne

Despite the refrence to Chen's Barrel, there are no Pandarens in World of Warcraft as of yet, there are also no Sundering era Highborne.--Baggins

The Highborne exist as a historical group, and I think should be included. The Pandarans exist in Warcraft lore, and I think should be included.--Scalp 14:05, 27 July 2006 (EDT)
Highborne are kaldorei however, the same as the night elves, not a seperate race best I can tell. If this page starts to go beyond being a WoW page, I could see Pandaren being added.Baggins 17:35, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

Northrend Humanoids?

Shouldn't Nerubians, Tuskkar, and Taunka be added? They are Humanoids after all, we don't need the expansion to confirm that. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Aroka (talk · contr).

I'm not entirely sure that Nerubians can really be classified as humanoid, but I agree with the others. -- Dark T Zeratul 00:29, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

They fit in all the categories of a humanoid though. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Aroka (talk · contr).

1. Are they classed as humanoid in the MMO?

2. Are they classed as humanoid in the RPG?

If not then they may not fit on the page.Baggins 05:11, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Size Categories

If you look at the height chart (p. 16 of the Burning Crusade game manual, you'll see that draenei are about as tall as tauren (and the males are nearly as bulky). They should probably also be in the "medium/large" category (or the category should be abolished, and the tauren put in one or the other). —Qit el-Remel 15:01, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Those categories are official RPG categories. So they will not be "abolished". As for Draenei we don't have more information about them.Baggins 05:10, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
Actually for the Draenei, he is correct...In the WoW:TBC manual, page 16-17, it shows the Draenei taller than female Taurens, but shorter than the males.....Actually they are the same size as the NightElves give or take an inch. So if Draenei are moved, the Nightelves have to be moved as well.
Hmm...the Trolls are a tad bigger than Nightelves ... and Draenei ... eh, Lets just leave it how it is. User:Coobra/Sig2 05:22, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Point of note Tauren are where they are because the RPG has categorized individual tauren in two seperate categories. Most characters fall under medium, and a few rare individuals fall under large. Whereas most if not all NPC and player characters in the other races have only appeared under "medium humanoids" listing.

I put tauren in a seperate listing to avoid listing them "twice".Baggins 05:26, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

And thats why Baggins is Lord of the Lore. User:Coobra/Sig2 05:38, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Wretched

I think the wretched are humanoids... Shouldn't they be right under under blood elves? LieAfterLie 03:25, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

ok added. User:Coobra/Sig2 03:42, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Flayer

Should "Flayer" be added as a race? Although there is not much information about them, they do appear as humanoids (and oddly enough, as beasts too), and should therefore be categorized as such. See Nethermine Flayer (beast) and Rocknail Flayer (humanoid).--gOurra[T¦C] 04:50, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

I really think bliz forgot that they made Flayers humanoid, when the later added flayers on Netherwing Ledge as beasts. What bugs me is that the lv70 ravagers on netherwing ledge are the only ravagers above the lv63-65, but aren't tamable.......what was the question? Oh yea, if you want to add them go ahead, but do it under Monstrous Humanoids ...was going to say not to, because they have no known speech...but then I noticed yetis on the list. User:Coobra/Sig3 05:02, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
The flayers on Netherwing Ledge was originally humanoids, but Blizzard made them beasts in a patch because they were over-farmed (?) by players to get alot of money and cloth. Just a side note.--gOurra[T¦C] 05:14, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
Ah, ... well, by the time I even noticed their race I saw beast... I always wonder if it was just a mistake..thanks for clearing that up. User:Coobra/Sig3 05:23, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
No problem.
On another note, I just made Flayer, using data from observations I've gathered from my journeys in Outland. As there is (as far as I know) no official data on flayers, I will keep that as reference. Someone also need to create an icon for the race, alas I do not know how to do it.--gOurra[T¦C] 05:27, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
I retract that statement: {{RaceIconExt|<Flayer>|<Small>}}--gOurra[T¦C] 05:34, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
For someone that didn't know how to do it...you sure made one really fast, lol. User:Coobra/Sig3 05:35, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Eh, just making a square from an NPC pic, resize to fit along with the other icons and voila - there's a race icon for ya. It will, though, need some polishing and that's what I originally meant. This will be a placeholder for now.--gOurra[T¦C] 05:39, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Makrura

Shouldn't Makrura be aquatic as well?
It says on the page of their capital Mak'aru that their capital is on the ocean floor. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Quendorsof (talk · contr).

Running away

The bit about "running away when at low health" is certainly true for most Azeroth and Outland humanoids. But I haven't noticed it happening with any of the Northrend ones. Anyone know if this was just an oversight on Blizzard's part, or if they've decided to get rid of it altogether? Jormungand IconSmall Rogue talk · contribs 21:46, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Pickpocket

Previously this page said first: "Can be Pickpocketed and Sapped by a Rogue. Then later on "Most can be Pickpocketed", so I changed it to avoid repeating the same meaning. Perhaps this should be done to all the "Characteristics in World of Warcraft" Notes, as none of those characteristics apply to every humanoid in game. Also, if you're disagreeing with the idea I previously stated, remember that the edit to the page was done because of a meaning being repeated:)

Murlocs

Murlocs have two arms, two legs, a torso with a head on top. They also have a language, architecture and something of a culture. Why aren't they humanoids? BobNamataki (talk) 22:32, October 23, 2009 (UTC)
