My Gnome is an atheist. Well, not true. He worships the God of Fire, which grants him his ability to pwn.Edit: First!
Fathios is a worshipper of the Earthmother, although I have a theory: Elune is the Earthmother, the Tauren simply know her by a different name than the Night Elves, so they are unknowingly worshiping the same goddess.
Filman is the worshipper ofthe Titans. He <3s being related to Earth people.
"This means that the Dwarves and the Earthen may share a common ancestry—an idea which the Dwarves find abhorrent."You mean the Dwarves and the Troggs? The previous sentence seems to imply that.Also, Neltharion is Deathwing, Blackwing is his son Nefarion.

i agree with fathios. i normally read a lot about each of the races of warcraft universe, and seems to me that Elune and the Earthmother are equal, if they are not really the same. nevertheless, i agree with is statement
wait, where are the spirits of the elements and the ancestors? I do believe that orcs as a whole believe in them.
Goutetsu, used to one of the few Blood Knights that had any true faith in the Light. That is until he was forced to become a Death Knight. Now he stands as an atheist, knowing that no other religion would accept someone like him.Also you forgot about the Cult of the Damned, an evil organization that worships the Lich King.

Also, the Orcs don't really worship the elements, and even among the Orcs the only true "followers" of the elements are the Shamans.
Twilight's Hammer? It used to be just an orc clan but it definitely has many, many non-orc followers these days.I suppose it may be considered an 'organization', despite being essentially an apocalypse cult.
Great blog, always been wondering about them all myself :DAs the more cunning among you will have realised from my name, all my chars follow Elune :PHurray for magical space lady!
My characters ingame are based on my own characters of my own fictional universe, but the story has theological elements that one could tie to a few ingame religions (I've worked on this story a long time, and I have no idea how each piece was inspired, but WoW was not a source I drew upon).Church of the Holy Light -> The Skolar, a quasi-religious establishment, focuses not on dieties but enlightenment and compassion for fellow men, and helped bring an end to human conflict in their world - with a little "assistance" from powerful but peaceful beings.Mystery of the Makers -> Calling themselves Guardians, these beings (mentioned above) are neither creators nor controllers, but have had a large hand in manipulating history for the better, and founded the Skolar on their own ideals. Their own mystical nature, however, has had them grasping at straws trying to understand their own place in the grand scheme of things, and they spent much of their time searching for answers. The most they managed to decipher was a cryptic tale of a race of dragon-like beings, a dissilusioned prince that abandoned his kingdom*coughferelcough*, and a "Nightmare of God"...Followers of the Old Gods -> In the Guardians' quest for understanding themselves, they find many ruins with clues to an ancient beginning. Unfortunately, before they can piece the puzzles together, they accidently unleash an ancient being of unfathomable evil trapped amidst the rubble. This being, capable of horrendous corruption, destroys the Guardians (only two are able to survive in a weakened spirit-state) and begins a centuries-long struggle for the universe's survival.TL;DR - whatd'ya think? :3
Church of the Holy Light, I guess. I haven't really thought about this at all, though.This gets me thinking...
I haven't really given my characters' religion much thought. My undead mage would probably be an atheist, as religion doesn't really come into the picture for her. My draenei shaman probably has to figure out how to balance his worship of both the Light and the Elements, but I haven't given it much thought. I have been pondering rolling a dwarven character, and they'd definitely follow the Mystery of the Makers; it'd give mining a nice RP-flair, having them looking for Titan artifacts as they gather materials.
it is possible, except for the undead's religion that all exist maybe its just meanyways when i get into an RP my DK will be athiest just not time for such things
My Blood Elf priest I sometimes RP with is a firm follower of the Holy Light :DNight Elf, ofc Elune. <3I could actually imagine Elune to be really hawt too...
Great job with this, really sums up the whole sort of... "gods" and religions in WoW.Queggy, you are now in my Top 5 Bloggers (which I never thought would happen, actually =P)
i agree with fathios. i normally read a lot about each of the races of warcraft universe, and seems to me that Elune and the Earthmother are equal, if they are not really the same. nevertheless, i agree with is statementI would agree with calling Eluna and the Earthmother the same. It's not uncommon for polytheistic religions to intergrate/equate deities of similar characteristics. For example: Rome v. Greece. That said, differences might still remain.
If a Dwarf is religious, it will usually follow the way of Light. WOAH BOY.DISCRIMINATION!By the light of Elune, all Dwarven allies, let us rise up and show Quegster who's the boss of Ironforge!EDIT: No one really knows where they Church gets its power from...and yes...I'm just busting your spelling errors...ignoring grammar ones.
