Why the fuck would you play gnomes or similar races?

I play small races mostly because they take up so little of the screen while still being in third person perspective, so I don't have any of my vision blocked. I also feel like I'm running faster.

I also find most of them cute.

A female gnome warrior beating the everliving shit out of Tauren, Orcs, and Undead is the best kind of juxtaposition and the only reason to play Alliance.

I'll pick those if it's something major, like in a Roguelike or whatever. Lately games have mostly been making races mostly an aesthetic thing. Not sure which I prefer. Either way, if it's just a minor little thing I pick which I like best aesthetically.

Killing people with a gnome character in WoW used to drive people nuts, like killed by a human was ok, but a gnome killing those "FOR THE HORDE" dudes always made them lose their shit. I guess it was fun for a while. Also, some people don't feel the need to self-insert.

Are you playing retail then my suggestion is to FUCKING STOP PLAYING
If it's a vanilla private server then you have a extra stealth level for nothing and the highest base agility in the game, stealth has a cool-down and then shadowmeld's utility is GODLIKE. Feign death in PVE, escape from fights in PVP.

There's nothing wrong with the anatomy, it's just the pose. The Draeni's pose is unnaturally bent back for them anyway.

>>323120884
I'm on vanilla WoW. Shadowmeld is not usable in combat just like stealth, and with 5/5 camouflage, stealth is on a 5 sec cd, so stealth can be used instead of shadowmeld upon using improved gouge.

>>323120524
Escaping fights from PvP involve shadowmelding into stealth, but you could just use stealth depending on the cd of your stealth. Feign death in PvE?

Typically in good MMOs they have benefits larger races do not.

In DAoC Lurikeens (leprechauns) had incredibly high Dexterity (dodging, blocking, casting speed, parrying, half bow/dagger damage) and Quickness (attack speed) to make up for their terrible Strength and Constitution. Made excellent casters, stealthers and shield based tanks.

Also people get really mad for no reason at small races, so that's great too.
