You know you can have more than one toon. I for one faction changed to play with family and really miss my mage being short and unporpoional (no way i spelled that right).

And i would really love to make her a goblin asap. But i wanna see the new started zones so i plan to make a shammy goblin....i dont see how i miss anything

You want to see the new starter zones so you plan to make a goblin...but you don't see how you miss anything by swapping races and having an instant lvl 80 goblin? I seriously doubt you would see all of the content that you would if you started a goblin at lvl 1.

I would make a level 1 goblin and try it out level it etc. What if you changed your main and realized (EVERYONE) is a goblin now and you miss your (UGH) undead lol. Seriously We were not allowed to race change to DK immediately. I think there should be a cooldown for this of at least a month. I mean do you remember how many shamans there were in the beginning of TBC and then towards the end nobody wanted to play it. It has made a rivival and all now but...well you see where I'm going with this. Everyone wants the next best thing but times they are a changing, I say wait a little.

I'm sure there will be a 1-3 month delay on race changes to goblins or worgens.

They don't want to upset the first of those races making it to 85 and then seeing a bunch of people that just paid $$ to race change.

Give it time, like I said, about 1-3 months...


I'm sure this will go over well with the "need-it-now" crowd.

ok first:
the realm first argument is a moot point. stop bringing that up please. Goblin/worgen race changes CANT get realm firsts.

second: to the guy that says "They were both confined within their territories, essentially. Is there that much danger within those territories to develop the experience a level 80 would have? " You dont think there will be high level NPCs? Do you think Glenn Greymane is going to be a level 5 toon? where did he level? not everyone plays on an RP realm.

and third: to "They don't want to upset the first of those races making it to 85 and then seeing a bunch of people that just paid $$ to race change."
how would one 85 worgen tell the difference between another completely rerolled worgen and a race change worgen? and even if they could tell if theyre max level it wont be long til all the other worgen are max level too anyway. going to make people wait 3 months just to make you feel special for a week?

I have no idea when it will be allowed, but I do know I am race changing my druid to Worgen as soon as I'm able. I already have far too many Nelves.

While I play on an RP realm, Game mechanics =| lore. Lore shouldn't have any bearing on game mechanics in a competitive game, and WoW has held fairly true to that. The RP argument also can be countered with one that'd appeal to a much larger population of the WoW community:

Worgens have *the* best PvE DPS and PvP (for certain classes) racials available to the Alliance. And frankly, that's what I care about. I'd play a wooden plank if it had the best raiding racials.

And some food for thought about Worgen and Goblins being 80 instantly not making sense: Draenei. Draenei Deathknights.

Blizz posted in the CSF that there are "No further restrictions planed to ANY of the paid services"
ill find the link and edit with it.


Edit



Yes i know this post is in regards to race changeing to the new class/race combos But i would like to point out that he says ANY


There are no anticipated changes to any of the paid services that I am aware of, Hillazon.

Should anything change in the upcoming weeks, an announcement will be made in our general forum and official Blizzard sites.

Would be amazing to get an official Blue response to this sometime soon. Launch is only a few weeks away. It would be nice to know if I should keep putting in effort on my current Rogue or just bench it and reroll a Worgen Rogue come Cata.

I would prefer the worgen and goblins not be offered as part of the race change service.
Suddenly, we see level 80 worgen and goblins. Where did they come from? They were both confined within their territories, essentially. Is there that much danger within those territories to develop the experience a level 80 would have? If so, how could a level 1 possibly survive?

Edit: You're playing an RPG, folks.


Or you get people like me who are RPing NElf mages and Worgen right now, just substituting humans instead. My future NElf mage is dreaming she's a human who thinks she's a Night Elf and my Worgen Warlock is a human that was cursed while out in Grizzly Hills, so her feral, wolf-like nature hasn't come to full fruition yet. I'd love to immediately race change said characters because I feel I have somewhat compelling stories, and the sooner I know when said changes are possible the sooner I can plan ahead and save up money for it. :)

Well I am super excited, I cant wait to make my 80 shammy a goblin....its long overdue :D And yes I will be rolling a lvl 1 goblin lock also to catch all the new content too. I dont understand why anyone else cares what you do with your character, if you dont want to pay for the change then dont, if you do then do. Its that simple. Just have fun and enjoy your game :)
