Not that it really affects ME per se, but this also works for Trial accounts? If I manage to find a friend who HASN'T played, can they try out gobs or pandas?

Does this change include the Starter Edition you get from RAF? Just wondering if I send an RAF to my friend if they can roll a Panda with me to level with on the day MoP comes out.

So, lemme get this straight. Without purchasing the upgrade to MoP

I can - Roll any race, after the patch update on Aug. 28th, EXCEPT a Pandaren
I can - Roll a Pandaren beginning Sept. 25th
I can - level a Pandaren to the highest level of my currently subscribed content (Cata for me)
I can - Have all of my mounts account-wide

I cannot - Access Pandaria
I cannot - Level skills beyond my currently subscribed content
I cannot - enter raids, dungeons, or battlegrounds beyond my currently subscribed content
I cannot - level a monk
I cannot - Participate in the Pet Battle system

The roll any race kind of has no bearing on players with Cata subs, they just have to wait until MoP launch date of Sept. 25th to roll a Pandaren.

This all looks correct except for pet battles. Those, like pandaren character creation, will unlock on September 25 and be available to everyone. ;)

Since all of the races are being rolled into the original "brown box" -- meaning you don't need to unlock them by purchasing a specific expansion -- yes, you should be able to try out any race using a trial account.

If you're doing this, just let people play whatever class they want on whatever race.


What does one have to do with the other???

....and thanx Zarhym for the quick reply.

"With the release of patch 5.0.4, we’re making all the races of Azeroth playable by anyone, no matter which version or expansion of World of Warcraft they own.


Unless you are a Druid and are limited to the same crappy couple of races because God knows in a make belief World few races can handle being Druids.

I sense sarcasm, though it's probably more true than you realize. :p

Do you have a link to an official post on this?

Edit: I have looked everywhere I can think of and have not seen any official word on this.

Panda's should be able to be druids, they already have bear form :)

I would imagine that race changes would be accessible to this as well

I'm still not gathering why those black and white bears cant be druids. They are closer to being druid then Trolls.

Yes all races can be made come the next patch...

But will we be able to create more than 10 characters per realm? On my main real I have 10 classes filled... would like a monk without having to put an existing toon in the gy.
