Blizzard wants you to reroll mage

We’ve discovered two errors in our original communications regarding which classes would be available to the Kul Tiran and Zandalari Allied Races. We’re in the process of updating those communications now, but wanted to call your attention to two important corrections:

  • Warlock was incorrectly listed as an available option for Zandalari at the What’s Next panel at BlizzCon. The Zandalari have no connection to fel magic, and will not be able to be Warlocks.
  • Mage was incorrectly omitted as an available option for Kul Tirans in the panel and on the World of Warcraft website. While Kul Tiran Mages are relatively uncommon, there are a few prominent examples, and so Kul Tiran characters will be allowed to play as Mage.

  • We apologize for the confusion that these errors have caused.


    All kidding aside this is a pretty big slap in the face to everyone that got duped via their errors. You would think that they could come up with a unique lore reason for them to be warlocks like how they made sun worshipping moo paladins or allowed undead to practice light and void magics. They even allowed gnomes to be hunters with mechanical pets.

    The literal storyline of the horde aiding in zandalar is fighting factions that turned to other powers because they saw their king going soft. They could create a small faction of warlocks who were influenced by the horde warlocks who have been mingling with the populace.
    Don't the Darkspear Trolls just view their Warlock magic as Voodoo? Why wouldn't the Zandalari Trolls do that too?

    Also, we can teach them our magic. Just like how we taught Orcs to use Arcane magic.
    Lol calm your nerd pants.
    true, they just nerfed affliction in the ptr, nothing on the notes about it. i guess that what it means when they said we got you on the radar.

    good examples. This is what I was trying to convey.
    The real pity is they literally just need to flip a switch to make Zandalari Warlocks. Its not like they have to do special coding or anything. Its just total BS. Also for anyone who thinks Zandalari arent connected to the Fel. Look up Demoniacs

    Literally Zandalari Warlocks.

    it's pretty obvious that you're just wearing different gear on the ptr.

    Is that like a pair of pants with glasses?

    Anyway Back On Topic.

    Blizz wants a lot of things for me. Like if I ever want to PVP, the only 2 classes I'm ever allowed to play (according to them) are Rogue and Demon Hunter.
    Rogue can go invis and stun lock for years, Demon Hunters can see them invis.

    If you title it using the word petition, or use the word in your post, they will delete it.
    Any Warlock reading this, please voice your opinion in that thread.
    My own opinion is that the only classes that should be confined to specific races are Druids, and hero classes (DK, DH). Every race should have the option to pick from any of the other classes.
