Best WoW Race Comparison Chart by MamaELM Best WoW Race Comparison Chart by MamaELM
Update: WoD will be released 11-13-14, and with it, all new race models! Once they are all completed and live in the game, I'll be compiling the data I know about the races size based on official releases, books, comics, information ect, and I'll be updating the whole chart. (I'm excited about this and I'm having a hard time keeping myself from starting now. XD)

I didn't expect for the Pandaren to be so big 0_o. Actually though that they were a little smaller. Was a bit of a surprise when I got side by side to one with my Gnome character XD.

I know right! They are pretty large XD

This is a possibly insane idea for coming up with height. Use the fact that yards are used to determine the range of attacks and use a sample spell's range to measure the height of races against. It might be tougher to do but could work.

Thats an alright idea! It wouldn't be very easy though, the math is there but difficult, along with the fact that several of the races hunch, and finding the exact limit of a ranged attack isn't precise enough. Don't worry though, once I get the new models working for me and everything I'll be updating this ;D

I'd figure that the exact center of the characters at both ends would determine a precise range. That might not be so easy but it's a start if you want to try it out.

hehe i love how all height charts place trolls somewhere in the middle when they're really the tallest model.. ^^; thanks a lot for adding their height when they're streching ^^
MamaELM Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2014  Professional General Artist
Haha thanks! Yeah I know they are super tall when they fully stand up! With the new models coming out in november+ I hope to be able to sit down and revamp this to be even more awesome. :D

a small error on chart for worgen you put 6'7 cause they are hunched while for the orc you have their true height if they weren't hunched just saying cause worgen are about 8 feet without hunch. (note I don't go by ingame models but from what I've seen in the comics.)

Ah thanks! What comics though? Are there official WoW comics?
I've recently been able to start playing again and hope to update this whole chart soon enough :D
