One week until BlizzCon! Everybody brace yourselves


6 Days! Let's hear it, Blizz!!
I'm suddenly reminded of that episode of South Park where Cartman had the ingenious idea to "cryogenically freeze himself" by sitting out in the snow high up in the mountains while waiting for the Nintendo Wii to come out with only two weeks left before its release. What could possibly go wrong?

There is certainly no irony in him dealing with talking otters and us getting Vulpera... right?
NEUTRAL RACE VULPERA!!! Give me at BlizzCon! Also don't make me wait for over a year to play them, like you have for Zandalari and Kul'Tiran. It's just insulting at this point.
cant wait for blizcon :)
One of these years I need to splurge on a ticket, I hear it's a blast. That and I've never been to California.

I was planning to get the virtual ticket until I looked up the price. I was imagining it was like 15-20 dollars. I was a little surprised by the actual price. I'll probably just wait for the bullet point summary because I'll be asleep for most of the good stuff.

My dream in to one day make a cosplay good enough to bring onto the stage at BlizzCon. I have a long way to go to get there though, but I'm working on it

You'd never guess who I'd cosplay... Lana'thel. Shocking right?!

Anyway have a boost for the Vulpera. Here's to hoping for the adorable foxes in less than a week. My main in roleplay (this toon) would be going bonkers trying not to ask to pet them hehe

Probably wouldn't be the only one, from Foxtober:

I used to get the virtual ticket in the past for the in game goodies but I can live without the cape or classic WoW demo.
I wonder if the Hogger costume will make a reappearance this year?
Still shocked this topic is uncapped. 2290+ posts.

The Sethrak ones are pretty big collectively, too. Here's hoping.
I'd love to play a Vulpera monk. Can you imagine those cute tails swishing through the air with the kicks or rolls? I suspect they'd make good monks with their overall attitude and soft spoken voices. They seem calm and capable.

Add this as another vote for Vulpera monk.

A proof of the hard work of enthusiasts and CMs' interest in seeing where we are going!

We just need to go through another 8 days, to hear something consecrating about vultures and, hopefully, about sethraks !!

After a confirmation from Blizzard, we will only have to wait for when they will be available and how we will collect reputation with them!
Once we get them, we need to organize a celebration event in Orgrimmar that makes the number of vulpera in the city during the foxtober event look tiny. I'd say do it a few weeks after they become available for unlock to give everybody time to unlock and make one.
You know, I was thinking about unlocks of allied races, and an idea occurred to me. So for, all six allied races have been a simple rep grind, and a quest line completion, and we don't know yet what unlocks the trolls or KTs.

Blizzard has said they didn't want just a rep grind as the only way to unlock a race, so I suspect they'll start mixing it up by possibly giving the 8.1 allies a set of quests/tasks your faction needs to do in 8.1 to unlock them.

Fast forward to 8.2 and Vulpera and Sethrak, they have an interesting way to, via what we already know about 8.1 quests, mix things up a bit. What if their unlock, is cross faction! On alliance side you have to complete quests linked to the invitation and takeover of Vul'dun, driving the Vulpera into the arms of the Horde and unlocking them for play on your Horde side. Similar, on Horde you play through the demands that the Sethrak join you fully rather then staying neutral ending in a retributive attack that drives them into the Alliance and making them playable.

Would cause some problems for those who don't cross faction play, but there are a number of single faction folk who that would be what gets them to switch, rather then needed to grind a new cross faction alt just to play the race you want.
Kinda want to make a vulpera warrior. Imagine something fluffy and tiny dual wielding two-handers, or using the bulwark of azzinoth

I think that so many people just play single-faction that they wouldn't pull a thing like this; like when people misunderstood why both factions had things listed under Pathfinder, a lot of people were upset with the idea of having to level another toon for it.

Otherwise though, creative thinking. They could make the intro quest for both races really good.
