Humans are one of the younger races in WoW who can, despite their short life expectancy compared to some other races, achieve a great many things. Although they have their shortcomings, some rise above and lead the race to power and glory.

Like heroic leaders of the past, there’s always a human who’s bound to ascend above others, showing courage, bravery, wisdom, strength, and honor as something everyone should strive for.

Humans can have different names, though old English types of a name fit them well. No matter what their profession might be, potential can hide behind any name and some good examples are Ralph Pickering, Jaelyn Hartford, and Millard Livingstone.

They have a rich history and more than plenty of roleplaying opportunities, and as such, they deserve a name of their own.
