PostSubject: New rase!   Sat 09 Feb 2008, 19:34

Hello Very Happy!
Well i had an idea Very Happy!
i know that it´s probebly not the right place to post this... Anyway.
Well i hoped for new races and hopfuly there will be new races Very Happy!(playabul)
Well how abote those Mercenery people? Like ogre´s for example you know the inteligent races. They can be bote hordes and allies Very Happy And they cant speak to eachother so they cant insult eachother.
So horde Ogres speak, Orcish and Goblin or some thing.
And Alli Ogres have Common and low common Very Happy!
And other races have things that fitts them Very Happy!
Is this a good idea?

there's 1 problem about the ogre language.. they only speak orcish i believe.. + it does kind of ruin your idea with intelligent race when you use ogre's as an example Razz but there will be new races for WotLK

There is no info about new races in WotLK. I do wish they added playable goblins and pandaren. I would throw kegs at people all day.

There has been denied that there will be any new races for Wrath of the LichKing

Quote :
from Bornak, Blizz poster

We are not "against" new races so to speak, but we don't want to force new ones into the game just for the sake of having them either.

In The Burning Crusade we launched 2 new races, we put a lot of development time into making them fit into the game along with the 2 starting zones that each of them now have.

In Wrath of the Lich King we are focusing on the first ever Hero Class, the Deathknight. While you may think a lot of people aren't excited over it, I think a lot of people really are. Right now there really isn't a lot of information to share beyond what was shown at BlizzCon four months ago. We are working really hard on developing it and when we are happy with the results more details will be shared and I'd bet the talks and excitement will flare up for it.

So why no new races? There are a lot of things that are fun ideas, but we did do this recently and we want to focus on other bigger and better things for out players to experience.

Will we never add new races then? Never is a bad word to use, there is always the possibility of this happening in the future, we just don't plan to do it for Wrath of the Lich King.
Smile

Aye. No new races in WotLK.

Although I'd like to see some new playable races in the future. Personally I'd love Nagas on Horde side. It would add a great new perspective to the lore too. The Horde Nagas should be renegades as well, just as the trolls and blood elves already on our side. They share common history with the elves (Highborne), so their bond would be justified. As well as the common hatred for night elves. ^^

As for alliance races, I can't really think of any good one, maybe pandaren. They need something crazy after the oh-so-noble draenei cliché.

I agree on the nagas... But i thought it was revealed in WCIII that they were originally nightelfs exiled Oo
And if the Pandaren would become a new Alliance race... i would roll that in an instant: Pandaren Brewmaster ftw!

"But i thought it was revealed in WCIII that they were originally nightelfs exiled Oo"

That's exactly what I said. Highborne. ^^ Actually Naga were night elves who pledged themselves to the Highborne queen, Azshara. Just as the rest of the now known blood elves. Difference is that while Blood elves were cast out by the druids to find a new home - what they did by founding Quel'Thalas when pouring the vial of that moonwell into the Sunwell - Naga on the other hand got caught in the Maelstrom between the two continents and were transformed by the power of the sundering.

Anyway, I would love to play a Naga witch, crying "In Azshara's name!" every battle. So... style. ^^

Available classes should be: Warrior, Hunter, Rogue, Mage and some twisted and corrupted form of Shaman (similar to how the blood elves can use the power of the Light, naga should corrupt the power of the spirits or something)

Oh I have so many ideas... *gets lost in his own little world*

"You will pay, surface-dweller..." *hisses*

Rather than new races (Levelling up another character would be a pain in the ass unless they added a completely new 1-80, 90, whatever), I think they should 'finish' Azeroth. There's lots of places either unopened or inaccessable, from entire zones to potential instances. A complete rework of Azeroth would be awesome, including rebuilding all the art assets to allow for Flying Mounts in Azeroth.

Furbolgs? Good god, I hate them...

Pandarens, if implemented, should be neutral. Or Horde only. Chen Stormshout greatly helped Thrall to establish Orgrimmar (loved that bonus mission in WC3). I don't see any reason why they should suddenly fight against Horde. So this brings to a need of a new faction - mercenaries, with pandaren and goblins as races of choice.

yet pandarians rarely ever appeared in warcraft.. (yes i know in 1 campaign part) but fulborgs appeared in both warcraft + in world of warcraft hence making it a better choice for a race than pandarians =>

An extra faction is the only thing I think would be able to be done. So I agree with Andro on this one Smile But that won't happen (I think Blizz will concentrate on Hero Classes from now on, they did say that there would be one Hero class per Expansion Pack)

Yeah, I heard Arch Druid would be coming next. Still, a playable naga wouldn't be that irreal.

Demon hunter, blade master... prefer an assassin (Not rogue) class since a dagger in the back isn't the best way to assassinate someone.

Would be awesome if they remade the hero classes so you could only have them if you leveled up a special class.. like... Warrior for blade master and rogue for assasin.. or that you upgrade a char too it! hehe... Hmm.. wonder what a pala would be able to be upgrade to...

well... adding a race or two or ten won't be that much more difficult (lore already exists, modles exist as well)...major problem with expansion will be balance of clasees and gear...if gear proceeds to advance in the same way expect gear dependant classes to pwn...remember what happened when TBC came out? Outland greens were better than endgame epics (imagine some "endlesly merciless turbo icy mega epic super gladiator pitchfork" or some similar crap that will come with the expansion), some parts of the game died out (who raids MC or NAX)... It will become hard to put more chllenging things without seriously bending wow lore (any idiot will be able to solo Onyxia...heroes should be rare sight).

P.S. sorry for the rant but i had to get this off my chest

That is true... But... Hopefully Blizz will be smart enough to realize that and at least stop raising the level cap.. So it won't be like.. 10 years from now people one-shot Illidan...Like.. Just put forth new stuff for the gamer to experience.. Thus making the only problem.. Gear..
