About race

The Highmountain Tauren of World of Warcraft is a race-related to the common Taurens of Kalimdor. They are found in the mountainous regions of Highmountain on the Broken Isles. Like most races, they were once divided into tribes that compete with one another. The four main tribes of these Taurens are the Highmountain, Rivermane, Skyhorn, and Bloodtotem. For generations, the four tribes fought each other to gain supremacy and control over different regions of the Broken Isles. It was then when Huln of the Highmountain tribe convinced the three rivaling tribes to unite as one in facing a new threat that arrived in their lands: The Burning Legion.

In this guide, we’ll discuss a short history of the Highmountain Tauren including their racial  traits and appearance. You’ll be introduced to our list of WOW Top Male and Female Highmountain Tauren Names; a list of some WOW Funny Highmountain Tauren names; and a rank list of WOW Top 10 Highmountain Tauren Name Suggestions.

The War of the Ancients and the Favor of Cenarius

The northern-central mountains of Broken Isles have been home to four ancients rivaling Tauren tribes. For many generations, these tribes fought for control over the areas and regions. With the appearance of the Burning Legion in Azeroth, Huln of the Highmountain tribe seeks the unification of the four tribes to fight off the invaders. Huln managed to unite all the four tribes under his banner and they fought together with the Kaldorei Resistance, furbolgs, and earthen. This marked the participation of the Taurens in the War of the Ancients.

Amid the chaos, the Night Elf resistance was assisted by other races in fighting off the Legion. By this time, the Legion already have the upper hand and has conquered most of the lands spanning from the Well of Eternity. The Wild Gods participated in this fight, including Cenarius. Many Wild Gods and their minions perished in the battle including Cenarius’ father, Malorne the White Stag. In the heat of battle, Huln Highmountain of the Tauren tribes rescued Cenarius’ beloved stag Eche’ro. Huln retaliated and created an opening for the resistance by banishing Tichondrius, the commanding officer of the Legion. Years after these events, the resistance was able to push off the Legion and was able to seal the portals of the Well of Eternity. The world of Azeroth has sundered apart as a result of closing these portals. Eighty percent of Kalimdor’s landmass was blasted, leaving a handful of scattered continents around the ocean after the sundering. The Sundering of the World was considered the official end of the War of the Ancients.

As for Huln Highmountain, his bravery and loyalty for the resistance earned him and his brethren Tauren forever gratitude from Cenarius. In turn, Cenarius blessed the entire Highmountain Taurens transforming their horns into the Horns of Eche’ro so that they will always have Cenarius’ favor. Huln returned to their home after the war and banished one of the remaining black dragons that enslaved the once peaceful drogbar race. He banished black dragon Deathwing from their home region and liberated the entire drogbar race. In honor of his heroic deed, the four tribes, including the liberated drogbar and other acquainted races in their lands, renamed their homeland “Highmountain”.

Highmountain Tauren Appearance

The Highmountain Taurens are very similar to the common Kalimdor Taurens. Their height range at around 10 ½ feet tall for males, while females are slightly shorter. Most of their body is masculine and they have a hardy physique and brawny built. Their body is covered with furs, with males growing thick manes along with their head and neck. Male and female Taurens always wear their hair long. Male Taurens prefer to braid their hair and tie it with a decorative band or ropes. Their fur color can vary from black to blond, with few having white or spots.  What makes the Highmountain Tauren different from the other Tauren variants is their prominent moose-like Horns of Eche’ro. Both male and female Highmountain Taurens possess this horn, with females having smaller horn sizes than males.

The Highmountain Tauren Racial Traits are summarized below:

Skills/Passive

Description

Bull Rush

[Skill]

Highmountain Taurens exhibit the strength and speed of a bull.

When activated, the Tauren charges forward for 1 second, knocking enemies down along its path for 1.5 seconds. This skill has a 2 minutes cooldown.

Pride of Ironhorn

[Passive]

Highmountain Taurens are well acquainted with the mountain and have formidable strength.

Mining skill increased by 15 and allows the Tauren to mine faster than most races.

Rugged Tenacity

[Passive]

Highmountain Taurens are hardy and strong.

Reduces any damage taken by [character level] x 3

Waste Not, Want Not

[Passive]

Highmountain Taurens are reluctant in leaving valuable resources and do not leave wastes.

They have a chance to loot additional meat and fish when hunting.

Editor’s Notes: Based on the racial passives, it is obvious that a Highmountain Tauren character is designed for a tank role. For players who want a character that fronts in battle, a Highmountain Tauren Warrior or Highmountain Tauren Death Knight is a good choice. These two classes can take advantage of the Bull Rush skill to easily close the gap on any target. The healer role is also a viable choice for this race; therefore, a Highmountain Tauren Shaman, Druid, or Monk is a good pick. The Hunter class is not a bad choice, but the other classes far exceed the benefits compared to picking this class.
