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!)
WoWWiki said:Old friends, the goblins fought with the Horde in the Second War, but broke off when they realized that it's more profitable to work both sides. However, many goblins remember the fun of the Horde and are willing to lower mercenary prices to Thrall and his people. Goblins offer almost exclusive transport services for the Horde, whether in their steamboats or zeppelins. You’re more likely to find a team of goblin sappers, who take great pleasure in the chaos the Horde creates, meshed into Horde forces than those of the Alliance. Perhaps with enough persuasion, the goblins could be convinced to rejoin the Horde for the first time since the Second War (although that could be just as harmful as helpful, knowing the goblins).Possible.
I was never a fan of the creepy Goblins :( I hope they make it so no matter what side you are on you can pick Worgen or GoblinsIf anything comes true about this maybe this will be a neutral race pick and you can safely run back and forth between major city's and areas without getting harassed lol :) Being Horde gives me a bad feeling we would end up with those Goblins cretins cause we lack short people, while Allies would get the awesome Worgens cause they lack animal people ><Maybe this is just an Easter egg to throw us off.That would make a massive amount of sense for goblins and i'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to make worgen either faction lore-wise. If i had to pick i would want to be worgen, but I am definetely rolling goblin(COMPLETELY assuming there will even be new races)
I rather want worgen to Horde, than Goblin.If they are going to be playable races, I'm guessing it'll be a sort of 'either on both sides' kind of thing.I just don't see Goblins picking a side like that.I really hope this is the case. Two new races that either side can choose would be a very new and unique aspect to the game. Also, since I play horde, of course I will be upset if Alliance gets Worgen.The supposed reason for the dreanei/BElf additions was to give Horde a "pretty" race and Alliance a "bulky" race. If Alliance got Worgen and Horde got goblins, it would tip the aesthetic scale in the alliance's favor (According to the majority opinion). So making it so both races could pick either side is a really good decision. Just that the goblins used to be horde worries me we'll miss out on worgen.(Yeah, this assumes these are the two additional races, if there are any)
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.
I'm inclined to say we're not getting new playable races. Quote me on that later.Depends on how well Aion and other MMO's coming out do. If they do extremely well, Blizzard will undoubtedly do everything they can to keep the cash cow milked -- including more races, more classes, and more of the same fun grind to the next level.
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.
One of my guildees was doing some searching through his archives and ran across this.*This is a screenshot of the Wow forums from back in 2004 by a Blizz coummunity rep named Caydiem. Cay was apparently a community rep until sometime in 2006.This post gets referenced a lot, but unfortunately Blizzard's forums do not go back that far - that, or they purged this specifically because it was not to have been posted.However, if you take a peek at it, you'll note that so far this plan has been held to pretty well. However, while Gilneas is noted as being in the next expansion, the following (The Planes) reference what appears to be the homeland of the Worgen and Pandaria.One other item of note: There is a quest line in Darkshore that references the fact that the Worgen are not native to Azeroth, I believe; it notes that they were brought here by magic (I think by Arugal). Gilneas, then might be completely infected and all be "Worgenized", but that is not their homeland.*It should be noted that these would have been the beta forums, I believe. According to WoWWiki, pre-1.0 patches (or pre-release patches) started in early 2004 and continued through October 2004. This puts this post occurring a few days after the official launch date.That post is faked. That list was originally posted on allakhazam in 2007, about a month after Blizzcon, by a poster who has admited to making things up on numerous occasions for attention. No actual copies of that list have been dated back to before later 2007, neither in archives or other locations.If a complete list of expansions had been posted, I'm sure it would've been much more widespread than just a screenshot sitting around for three years before resurfacing in an allakhazam post claiming it came from a leaked pdf file.
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
I'm inclined to say we're not getting new playable races. Quote me on that later.No races or classes = not buying the expansion for me.
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.
anyone who thinks these masks indicate that these races will be playable clearly hasn't checked the calendar. It won't be 4.0 by October.We're talking about Blizzard man, if it's stupid, Blizzard will do it, for example check the patch notes.
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.
