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...
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!
