They can surf on top of the mech mounts, or be pressed up against the glass if it's something they have to ride inside :)

can't be worse than a tauren on a mecastrider. .. Taurens are basically minataurs so im sure they could find a solution to a centaur. ..though it might not be childfriendly seeing a centaur ride a Horse. .. tip.. DONT Google that....

I always wanted to roll a Centaur, as I stated in the OP. My idea is, one of its racial is something like "Shifting Scirocco Sand". Being descendants of Theradaras, Centaurs would be able to turn themselves into a whirlwind of sand. It can only use this form out of combat, it can travel at mount speed. If centaurs use their mounts, they will turn into this form as well; the mount will have a whirlwind of sandstorm encircling it:- this would be how centaur mount.

For the flying form? Nice idea!
I agree that a centaur riding anything would look mostly silly (maybe a croutched/laying down posture on the giant-flying-mount, at most?) But wouldn't it be kind of expected when you roll an half-horse race?
Stuff would be the same as others toons, except invisible pants (like Taurens/trolls/draeneis invisibles shoes). And the shoes would be like legs protection on their horse legs

I am assuming we all remember bear druids riding the camels in Halls of Origination :D

Hoping those Seth'rak snake people become allied to the Horde :D could really go for a snake man, I'll say " I AM THE SERPENT KING, I CAN DO ANYTHING " :D

Not gonna lie, I personally feel it's kinda lame to give the Horde night elves and the Alliance blood elves. I know they're not the same thing, but they look very similar. I don't have a valid reason for feeling that way, I just do. :lol: It has nothing to do with lore or anything, I guess I just worry that somewhere down the road, we'll see "Anyone can play as anything! Any race! Any class! Any faction!" and uniqueness of any kind will be gone. That's probably over-dramatic and not at all the case, but I do worry.

That being said, I actually really like the Highmountain tauren. I always wanted either those fuzzy buffalo things from Northrend (taunka?), or the Highmountain. The Lightforged are very neat too, but I'm a little sad they don't have darker hair colors so I can change my priest without having her look too different from her current look.

As for potential other allied races, I really like the saberon (they could do awesome coat patterns and colors!) and the arakkoa (with vibrant plumage and "shiny trinkets" in their feathers). I've wanted naga for a long time, too. I agree that we could definitely use some more beast races.
