    I was just thinking about what Races in warcraft could become new playable races in World of Warcraft... like Pandarens (for Alliance)? Goblins (the Horde needs little people like the Gnomes)? Naga? (Horde) I'm just wondering what you guys think.

    Lolz. I just hit level 70 with my Sheep Warrior. And aren't Murloc's just mindless creep fodder? Should they seriously be a playable race?

    Yes, that's the problem. WoW doesn't need any more races. Adding Blood Elves and Draenei was even a bad idea (the way they did it was, anyway, reversing their alliances). You know why? Because every other race is strictly neutral in WC3. To put them into WoW means that they would have to make them chose a side. To choose a side would interfere with lore when a historically neutral faction decides to pick a side. It would make a lot of people very unhappy about how Blizzard is stretching the Warcraft lore in order to fit their crazy ideas to please the WoW fans. I don't want any more races, Blizzard has screwed up the lore badly enough so far, I don't want it to get any worse.

    okay this thread died. i know exactly what you are saying Brad i just wanted to think about what other people thought.
    *EDIT* Chriz. No i didn't take you seriously. I just remember when people actually though Murloc would be put in and I was just making sure you weren't one of those people. (no offense)

    Not really... it is possible to find new races... for example, you could play as nagas easily on horde (btw naga character models are in-game, starting point near Azshara), high elves on alliance (yep I know there are blood elves, but high elves could start near Hinterlands)

    lolz. goblins on motorcycles. that'd be sick.

    Alliance:
    Human
    Dwarf
    Night Elf
    Gnome
    High Elf
    Pandaren

    Horde :
    Orc
    Troll
    Tauren
    Undead
    Goblin
    Naga

    there we go. That works
    *EDIT* and about mounts we could have orange tigers for the Pandaren and Japanese Dragons as their flying mounts. motorcycles and small flying machines for goblins. no naga land mount because they can swim and those
    Couatl as their flying mounts. Horses and DragonEagles for the Highelves.

    Hi, but, yeah High Elves kinda don't exist any more, remember? To make them exist would go again st warcraft canon. That's BAD. We already have the blood elves, no more.

    No, Blood Elves ARE the high elves, or all that's left of them. Arthas basically went genocide on those fools, and the survivors dubbed themselves the Blood Elves, in honour of the blood of those who were killed.

    Panderen if they were too choose a Faction would probably be Horde. Its been hinted that the Pandaren are more Pro Horde when you have Chen following you around. I think before he leaves he says something about mentioning the Horde ways too the Pandarern.

    Actually no
    There are high elves left
    Blood Elves are the larger faction of high elves who have a greater magic addiction than High Elves.
    High Elves control their magic addiction WAYYY more, notice they have no glowing green eyes

    The Blood Elves led by Kael'Thas left the Alliance to join Illidan and his crew of Naga, but there are some High Elves who remained loyal to the Alliance, if I'm not wrong, most of them are in the company of an half-elf, daughter of Admiral Daelin Proudmoore and another high elf who lived in Dalaran, they had meetings often and that half-elf was eventually born from them. When Arthas assaulted Dalaran, the mother of the half-elf died.

    When Admiral Proudmoore tryed to convince her half-elf daughter that the kingdom was lost to the Scourge, she called him coward and decided to stay on Lordaeron.
