There is a lot of confusion when it comes to describing non-Human height, weight and age. This article has been written to try to help those who may have this problem.

The ProblemEdit

Too often, when attempting to describe a characters height, weight or age, the creator is forced to resort to similes, describing the characters attributes in reference to human.

For example:
Redbeard is about the age of a twenty year old human.

We will assume Redbeard is a dwarf, due to naming and character selection process, and can safely assume he isn't a human. As such, there are two ways to read Redbeard's Age.

(1): Redbeard is roughly the equivelant, mentally and physically, to a human at twenty years old or
(2): Redbeard is an infant dwarf, because dwarves live significantly longer than a human.

It is safe to assume that the creator implied the first interpretation, but you can never be too sure on anything. The user would have had to describe it into human years because they probably simply did not understand how old dwarves are. But because dwarves live longer than humans, it is an error to describe a character as such, because a dwarf at the physical and mental equivilent of a human at twenty will still experience and learn more than a human could within those spans.

In an attempt to prevent confusion, I will go ahead and list the ages and heights of each race, with the exception of Draenei. All information comes from the World of Warcraft RPG guides, or from Blizzard, unless noted otherwise.

AgeEdit

How old is your character? Below is the ages of each available race for creation. Also included will be a conversion formula you can use to be able to calculate any equivelency to a human age.

HumanEdit

Adult: 20 years
Middle Age: 40 years
Old Age: 60 years
Venerable Age: 80 years

Formula: None needed.

Blood ElfEdit

Adult: 170 years
Middle Age: 2085 years
Old Age: 3500 years
Venerable Age: 5000 years

DraeneiEdit

Adult: 5000 - 15000

Middle Age: 16000 - 40000

Old Age: 41000 - 55000

Venerable Age: 55000+

ForsakenEdit

There is no need for anything for Forsaken, because the Forsaken do not die. If you wish to come to an age of death, simply use Human data.

GnomeEdit

Adult: 40 years
Middle Age: 100 years
Old Age: 150 years
Venerable Age: 200 years

DwarfEdit

Adult: 40 years
Middle Age: 125 years
Old Age: 188 years
Venerable Age: 250 years

Formula: (Human Equivelent) x 3.5

TrollEdit

Adult: 17 years
Middle Age: 30 years
Old Age: 47 years
Venerable Age: 69 years

Formula: (Human Equivelent) x .9

Night ElfEdit

Adult: 300 or 320 years
Middle Age: 8000 -15000 years
Old Age: 20000 years
Venerable Age: 30k+ years

Formula: (Human Equivelent) x 60

(Note: Nbsp Most Night elves at are are at a youngest 2000 years old according to WOW lore. A lot of people who havent read up on lore try to roleplay that they "Fought in the war of the ancients, or One of the Highbourne" even though they have their age set around 5000 years. The Youngest a Night elf Could be and been alive at the time of the War would be 10000 years.)

OrcEdit

Adult: 20 years
Middle Age: 40 years
Old Age: 65 years
Venerable Age: 80 years

Formula: You can see they age pretty similarly to humans, interestingly.

TaurenEdit

Adult: 50 years
Middle Age: 75 years
Old Age: 95 years
Venerable Age: 110 years
