The next possible playable race

Well since Metzen said he wanted to make ogres and naga playable eventually along with goblins then I'm guessing 1 of them would be in the next playable race area. Ogres obviously would be Horde unless Blizzard pulled a blood elf on them and Naga could be played into the Alliance with some story about some Naga wanting to be redeemed (we can make it 3 races the night elves bring in then!)

One Race that I would really love to see added you be Nymphs, now not the quadrupedal kind in Northrend, but the bipedal kind like this one;

I have to ask, do we really need more playable races?

No (to both questions) - I would much rather Blizzard flesh out some of the current races that are lacking in lore.

I think this is one thing you and I can actually agree upon, yeah?

No, but maybe some updated/new models would be nice?

Agreed. And as strange as it would sound to some, I'd rather my dwarf's... 'assets' be less pronounced as she runs. >.>

Oh, hush. I like my dwarf. I think she's awesome, it's just that I couldn't help but wonder what was going through the heads of the animators when they decided to go through with that.

I agree with refining the existing Races. I'd love for the Night Elves to be on Yseras level, not the frame, just how smooth the model is.

Oh, no no - I agree. I wasn't laughing at YOU, just the thought of dwarven... erm... *assets*.

I think it would detract from the armor at best and make for an awkward set of animations at worst.

Personally I just want some physical therapy for the orcs and trolls, their backs have got to be killing them.

Just be careful around them. They tend to hit indiscriminately, *and* they're covered in plate.

I have no idea how to respond to that statement. So, I'll just agree and we'll leave it at that...

... but since we're talking about updated models, I would love to see the Night Elves lose the bounce and get a better idle animation.

At times, I can understand why they don't implement the female draenei shoulder roll, but at the same time, I kinda wish they did.

I can see a faction of the naga working with the horde...BUT not while hellscream is incharge and thrall is gone...thrall has a weak spot for races that have been through hell and have been bullyd by all the other races, the horde has fought many bloodelfs when they where with the alliance but the horde still let them join horde, if the naga simply asked the horde if they can join the they would most likely take then with open arms, BUT if they give us troops supplies ect. But i dont see this with the alliance the alliance tends to hold gudges. the Vrykul look to much like humans, in fact most races look like humans. Furblogs can join the alliance BUT they look to much like worgan IMO...im not sure what the next alliance race would be but one thing for sure Horde should get naga that would be awesome

Horde race = Naga
Alliance race =??

i REALLY dont wanna see a harpies in the horde or orges. But i know blizz would probly make another already-horde-race into the horde like orges....dam it would most likely be

Horde = Orge or harpies
Alliance = Naga
if bliz can read this plz dont do it i know naga are blue like the alliance and all but they would fit into what the horde stands for

Naga can't happen cause of armor and character design. This has been explained many times to the countless "next race" threads...


Just a question but have you read any of the Threads about Naga being Playable were people bring proof that Naga can use all armor, with their new Models?

I don't think you will find any wanting to be redeemed so much as not wanting to betray Neptulan since they used to worship him as well, their should be some devoted followers.

Why do people think harpies would be on the Horde? We hate them, they hate us, they have no hands, they're BORING

*rage and froth*


Also: Naga will never join the HORDE, due to being killed in cages in the Darkspear starting zone.

A one fourth of the Blood Elf starting zone was for killing Trolls.

And being realistic the Playable Naga there would probably be killing Azsharas Naga in there starting zone anyway and since that is a Azsharan Naga they probably wouldn't care.

Most centaur are keepers of the grove...I have to see any that aren't related with it.


Both can trace their lineage back to Cenarius, but their appearances, abilities, and attitudes are quite different.

The naga have been "bullied"?

They were Highborne elves in cahoots with the Burning Legion. When the Well of Eternity was destroyed, they were transformed into serpent-creatures by the Old Gods.

They now have a large and powerful empire ruled by a demigod. They're allied with the Old Gods, and by extension, with the Twilight's Hammer, the Faceless Ones, and Deathwing.

They're not a weak race and they don't deserve sympathy.
