Is Blizzard done with race/class combos?

So, as the title says, can I still hope that they'll add more race/class combos? :)
Still hoping for gnome paladins/hunters.
Moreso hunters
I hope not. I want them to add Tauren Mages into the game. I don't care if they use retcons or not.
I think I may be the only person who doesn't want every race to play every class. I just don't think it always makes sense. And a lot of the ones they add seem to stretch the lore a little as it is.

If all races are exactly the same, why are you playing different races?
I like them being different. I like there being more then pure aesthetics in the decision of what you're playing. (Or even more than just what their bonuses are.)

Hell, I'd love different class/race combos to have different starting quests, because what your class is has a huge influence on who you are, but I doubt that would happen anytime soon (and would likely be a thread of its own.)

Mind you, I like to rp, and that influences my decision heavily. Nonetheless, that's my two cents.
I went from Blood Elf to Tauren for this expansion. I want a Pandaren Paladin damnit!

I'm pretty sure Cata was their opportunity to add everything that they wanted to.


Yeah, and some of those were a bit of a stretch. So I'd say they're done as well.
No way. You think they'd give up on all the money they make from race changes to the new race combos?

Lots more are coming in MoP!!!

pandaren/x

and

x/monk


I can't wait!! Actually... I think I'll just stick with my human paladin that I've played since vanilla.

In my opinion, lore shouldnt be something that stopped new things but something that could be used for new things.

I'm afraid I'm not quite sure what you mean by that.
Undead Paladins!

The Light...it burrrrrnnnnnsssss..

I want to see an Enhancement Gnome Shaman.


Hey, do you have the grey camel? I hear it's a rare mount.

Well, we're adding the pandaren and monk in Mists of Pandaria and the monk class will be available to all races save for goblin and worgen, so you could say that, "yes, we're still adding new race/class combos." That said, we want to make sure that when we add things like this that they make sense for the longevity of the game so we can't make any guarantees as to what or how often these will be added into the game. Balancing new classes into the game is a bit more difficult than adding a new race, but there are obviously complexities to both.
I might as well throw out my hopeless request for Night Elf paladins. It's supported by lore, and the Alliance hasn't gotten a new paladin race since BC.
