In the initial stages of Warcraft III's development, Blizzard intended to create the Minotaur as a unit for the Horde. This was later changed to tauren.[1]

They were armed with big "ball and chain" weapons instead of totems.


The official site had the following description of the minotaur:

Steeped in mystery and lore, the Minotaurs of the Barrens crush their enemies beneath their hooves. Legend has it that for every kill a Minotaur warrior makes in battle, he braids a section of his rough-haired coat as sign of his prowess, strength and courage.[2]
