Race Change Question still unanswered.

Can I race change into Death Wing and wreck havoc upon Azeroth for a couple of days?


I believe that sort of wizardry would require a Flux Capacitor, the Arrow of Apollo, and maybe an eye of newt.

Don't forget Wurt's (Wirt's?) leg!

is there going to be a gold cap increase on faction change/transfer to coincide with the new 1 million gold cap and ease of which you can obtain gold? 20k for level 80-85's seems kind of outdated :P

Let's say you start the process of a race change 2 days before cataclysm hits. The next day you get the little tool next to your character that allows you to race change.
Would that tool, if you wait for another day, allow you to change into worgen without having to go through the hassle of server downs on the day cata hits what with 5 billion people changing their races at the same time?

Back to the Future, Battlestar Galactica, and Shakespeare reference in one post. Truly epic!

That's a good question I wouldn't mind knowing the answer too... I wouldn't mind buying it ahead of time if this would work.

I was under the impression that the flux capacitor did not work without One Point Twenty One Jiggawatts.

This is in answer to Asharak's question: "If I race change into a worgen from a Gnome what happens to my mechano striders?"


Worgen do not have any mounts for them to transition into, and my faction will be swapped down to neutralWorgen can have the other racial mounts. The thing is that their racial mount is not a separate thing.

I have heard blues say they don't take items away, you just can't use them if your don't meet the requirement for that item.

Awww...you use an Arrow of Apollo and an eye of...newt??? WTB Eye of Jupiter...say, right smack in the middle of the forums. Of course, if you're insistent on an Eye of Newt, at least make it Gingrich. ;)

Can we get a definitive answer to this one too?

I am currently Alliance, but plan on joining my guild on Horde as a troll druid. In order to avoid a long wait in the first day of cata I was just going to become a tauren for now and then turn troll a few weeks after release.

If I can pre-purchase the faction change I can save myself $25 and be a troll day 1!

Trolls be flippin' out 'mon!

For people trying this

Flux Capacitor drops in Gnomergan

If you can figure out where the other two drop I'd appreciate it.

Good timing! Bornakk just recently commented on this (<a href="http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/1116854#blog" target="_new">http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/1116854#blog</a>):

Changing to the new race/class combos will also be available once Cataclysm is released on December 7th. There will be a period of time between the Shattering and the launch of Cataclysm where the new combos can be created but not changed into. As with everything, this could change.


So, while you will be able to create, let's say, a dwarf shaman or a tauren paladin just after the shattering, you will be unable to change an existing character into any of the new race/class combinations using the Race Change service until Cataclysm is released.

Should this structure at all change, we'll be sure to let you know. :)



That's nice. Now give us an appearance tab :)

You wouldn't happen to be a Newt?


I'm mostly a dragon kite. Mostly...


Wow, I heard Newt's voice in my head as I read that...

Poor Newt.
