Faction change, race change... cant wait for class change :)Never going to happen. Race and Faction are, when you get down to it, cosmetic at best. They're not going to let you level a Hunter (EZmode) and then change to a Priest (Holy crap so hard to level) at 80. I have been waiting for this for so long. Well, as long as everyone else, but you know what I mean. I like how the tagline for this is "Because you always wanted to be a Blood Elf", but I'd be willing to bet that the majority of these, myself included, is people who rolled Blood Elves, leveled them, then lived to regret it. Myself, I changed my Blood Elf priest to a Troll as soon as I saw the announcement. After some happy dancing, of course. I love it. It was a bit pricey, but ah well, so is $15 a month, so meh!In other news, I really pity the people who roll a race based solely off racials. People keep saying "wait 4 cataclysm 2 c new racials then decide". No. I'm going to roll a race based off which I like the most, no which will give me a .00678% DPS increase over the others. For Sen'jin, mon!
Read the Terms, they say that they are debating allowing faction changed to Cataclysm race/class combinations. They might not allow you to change it for a while.
now only class change and gear change and its complete
This is a fine change as long as they lock out switching to goblins and worgen for like 6 months follow cataclysm release. Dunno if they should lock out the new class/race combos, I'm undecided. I guess if there's no achievement for being the first dwarf mage to 85 then allow it, but still it seems a little cheap to allow it instantly.
You could see this coming since they allowed rolling both ally and horde chars...I was thinking of changing my human pally to a belf and I am really happy I didn't ... In time, I kinda got used to her looks and u gotta say, seeing a tiny female, hiding behind that huge shield, tanking Anub'arak or Anub'Rakhan and keeping the other not-so-tough male draenei/human/NE DKs safe is kinda cool :D And after I logged with a friend's belf and checked how he will look as a shieldwall :) - well they look like crap.. wtf is up with that pose ?TL;DR - change if you really REALLY dont like your current race, cause u might regret it after some time. (read : and pay another 25$ to change back)
ya, so either 1. You can switch an 80 to a worgen/goblin, but there won't be a "first worgen/goblin lvl 85" achievement cause there wasnt one for draenei/blood elves...but there werent achievements in the first plac back then.or 2. Bliz'l make you wait a month or two (until the "realm first 85" achievement is taken)i'm guessing it'll be #1, cause if u switch an existing 80 to a worgen/goblin 80...its still an 80 and u have the same chance as anyone else with an 80 going for the achievement
My first toon was a human, whom I played for 7 levels before being convinced that playing the alliance was for church-goin' goody-two-shoes whose worst transgression against humanity was being late to a Sunday sermon. Since then, every single character that I've created has been (still is, and will remain!) undead. There's something to be said for refusing to roll over and play dead...
I thought that Blood Elf paladins would be able to be tauren? Was that a lie?Wait until tauren can be paladins.when will that be?When Cataclysm comes out...sometime next year.so when cats comes out tauren will be able to be pallys?Yes.Holy Cow!(sorry, had to do that).I am looking forward to this (when Cata comes out). I always wanted my self-named character to be a Human Hunter, but they couldnt be hunters, so I made a Dwarf Hunter, and have borderline ignored it... but, with this I can race-change him into a Human when Cata comes out!I can also take my Dranaei Shaman to the Dwarves.And maybe thats why my Human Warlock has been AFK for years - he was Worgenised :DI believe many people will change their mind for going tauren paladin...seriously it's just looks stupid
Inc.Worgen Druid. =DHmm... that's right! Instant level 80 worgens and goblins, for a fee.Blizzard has said they'll block that selection for "a considerable time after Cataclysm is released" to ensure the first Worgen and Goblin to 85 of every possible racial/class combination is not a quick transfer in T10 gear but someone actually leveling up.So getting to 85 (and with the gear reset the only thing that counts against this option are your achievements and reputations) might actually be faster with a new toon as opposed to a race changed one.
Great if only it didn't cost $25. Why do they have to change money for everything? Isn't it enough we pay a monthly fee?
ok, first race change, sex change, face change, faction change, MINI-TRANSACTION(that they said they would never do) for the non-combat pets, now a race change? whats next, make it like KOL where if you finish a character, you keep 1 ability and become a lv1 character of a different class, WITH THAT ABILITY? (and the normal abilities for that class. mages with stealth, plate wearing and healing, here we come.)...actually, that would be a good idea...(thinks of a tanking warrior with all the mage/DK AOE spells)...no it wont!
