Pronounced "dra-nye" or "drah-nye." The only particularly interesting Alliance
race in World of Warcraft
. Tall and (usually) blue, with tails and cloven hooves. The males of the species look somewhat like Hellboy
and have catfish barbels on their faces; the females are much slimmer, leggy, and have horns.
Notable for being the only Alliance race that can play as shaman
s, for being the only race in the game that can be either shamans or paladins
, and for having an inherent healing ability.
Some slang terms are space-goat (from their hooves and a common misconception about their origin), squid-goat (from their hooves and the males' facial barbels), blueberry
, and smurf.
Most of my Alliance characters are draenei. The rest of the races are kind of boring.
