The "new details" is mainly about the fact that wow.com has, from certain sources, confirmed the races will be playable and which faction each race will be tied to. I'm assuming these sources are the same ones that had leaked information about the WotLK changes that were later confirmed, so their legitimacy is somewhat trusted. This news is mainly just the "speculation" to "confirmed by trusted sources" post.
Personally, I think it would be a lot more interesting if instead of just adding two cut and dried races, a la TBC, they gave the character a choice. I.E, goblins and worgen could choose their faction during creation or during their starter area, sort of how it works with the factions in Sholazar Basin currently.I really doubt that Blizzard would just do a rehash of TBC without adding a twist (at least I'd hope so).Edit: In addition, I really hope Goblins don't have Horde... with Belfs being added to the Horde in TBC, and goblins in the new expansion, I'm truly afraid of a Horde population explosion.
I have a friend who is supposedly in the alpha test for the next expansion, and one of the things he said to me while we talked about WoW, was the fact that there might be a 3rd faction in the next expansion. he hasnt said much else, but I personally believe that the new faction will possibly incorperate one of the two, but the other doesnt seem likely. this is probably just to lead people off of the trails. blizz is like that. again, I heard this from word of mouth, and I dont know how much truth to put in it, seeing as Im pretty sure that him and all my other friends are insane in different ways.
Halloween masks don't mean anything regarding new races IMO, but if you've got a link to more substantial evidence, I would like to hear it.
I realize there's no link with proof, but. . .I TOLD YOU FOO'S!
IMO worgen could go horde just as likely as alliance. They were pulled to Azeroth against their will by humans, and they might not like them for that. Also stories of redemption from being bloodthirsty killers is a bit of a horde thing. And I cant imagine the alliance likeing a race that doesnt worship the light/look human.-Edit- I dont think the goblins would join the alliance either, so the only thing I can think of is neutral races.
You what im thinking of. Nutral races, the Goblins and Worgen don't have a faction Affilination so you can choose what side you want to be on with them. Make them do a quest chain like the deathkight class but make it an option to do it.
goblins? i think they are too greedy to side completely with the horde dont you think?i bet it ll be pandaren and worgen
Blizzard website links? :<
WHY is this news AGAIN?wow.com is one of the most unreliable sources for information possible, they will write anything just to get 40 'fresh' articles out each day and pull in the adviews...btw.. wasn't there another data update with further masks?
Lotta speculation over two hallows eve masks.
Please don't bring this to WoWHead... I stayed away from the official forums because of all this crap SPECULATION about halloween masks... They've already pretty much debunked it by finding even more halloween masks. :/
