Personally I'd replace Draenei or Belfs for a Goblin race any day. In fact, I'd take out Belfs all together =PAt any rate, Goblins rock, and it's hard for me to see all these Hordies posting their dislike for race, and wanting to swap. Embrace your little green brethren! (Pro Tip: more Goblins = more gold!)
ok i don't care i'm really gonna say it, that female worgen looks Hot.
Make them neutral. That would be sick as @#$%. Then they can go into both horde and alliance cities and not have to worry about that stuff. Later on, at level 30 or 20, they choose a side to be with and grow from there. Scryers/aldor like .
I'm inclined to say we're not getting new playable races. Quote me on that later.
Its not a long shot really, after all, Death knights found a way to break away and join the ranks of the Horde and Alliance. But, I think our best bet is to wait until Blizzcon.Yet I have a feeling me we may or may not receive any info or confirmation of this speculation. Or maybe I hope not, because I don't want to think about the next expansion until I've gotten what I wanted out of WotLK.
If this is true, which I have high faith in; I would finally play alliance. A Worgen Shaman, or Rouge, or Insert cool Class here. I wouldnt ever play a Worgen Paladin(does such a thing exist?) because I dont really like Paladins.I bet Worgens will be:DK (DK's can be any, race, faction due to the fact that they were once of the living but no longer are.)Warrior (Almost all races can be Warriors, the exception being blood elves.)Shaman (They seem to be attuned to nature, even though they may not be naturally conceived; They are influenced by the forces of nature.)Rogue (They seem skilled in prowling undetected, making them an ideal rogue class.)Hunter/Druid(In the same vein as shaman, but unlikely that they would be accepted into the Cenarion Circle, plus that would unbalance Alliance-Horde druid racial population. So Hunter seems more reasonable.)Warlock/Mage/Priest(It would be unlikely there would be a race without atleast one class of every armor type. My bet would be mage, due to the known alliance with Archmage Arugal.)Goblins are likely:Warriors and DK's(same as above)Hunters (The engineering Ingenuity would carry over into hunting and trapping.)Rouges (Goblins are known Tricksters.)Mage (They seem to know how to wield some magics.)Priest (They need a racial healing class, and this seems to fit the best.)
Surprise surprise.Goblin and werewolf masks for Halloween? Blizzard must be going crazy!Goblins and werewolves are both staples of Halloween fairy tales. I feel this is being read into far more than it should be.
I hate raining on the worgen/goblin parade...BUT...Anyone else notice how there are 45345456356 topics of this on the WoW official forums? With CMs posting in other threads? So if this was real wouldn't said topics be deleted by the CMs on the board?
While this may be being read into a little more than it should be...I find myself grinning like a loon over the idea of the Worgen becoming a playable race. As for Goblins...meh, not so much.The neutral aspect would definitely be an interesting feature. At a certain level, you choose which side you want to be on, etc. It'd be fun, imho.But, I'm not gonna hold my breath. It may or may not happen, although I sincerely hope it does. I feel sorry for the RP servers, if it does happen, though. I mean...talk about being flooded with rabid werewolves. =P
No. As much as I wish this was true (I would consider defecting to the Allies if the Worgens were playable), I've gotta say no. Worgens are just scary, like werewolves, so it makes sense for them to be added as Halloween Masks. And the as for the Goblins, don't they creep you out to? Plus they are 89% Neutral... Unless you're a scurvy dog... (Or they can make a profit from teaming up with one side.) As a big lore fan, it would be much easier to see the Ogres side with the Horde than the Goblins, as they were convinced to side with the original Horde.
Eh, until I see a blue post confirming this, I'm going to remain highly skeptical.(besides we don't need all the furries rolling alliance with characters named "krystl" "crystill" etc etc)
But mayhaps the Worgen that join the Allies are not evil Worgen, but a race of half-worgen that have broken free of the chains of their bloodlust to... Wait... They would still be half Worgen and therefore impure; and, as we all know, the Allies are totally racist against ANY form of monster. So yeah, OP is right and I am defeated.
if this true I would stop playing all my characters and play a worgen rogue in a heart beat. The only problem I forsee with the introduction of a new race, is by the next expansion we're going to be going towards level 90. Obviously Blizzard is making improvements to make it so leveling up is easier, but still, just think about it, that's 90 levels.Starting at level 1 and progressing for the next 89 is going to be pretty rough.
