a new race

Story Forum
I'd like to see sea elves or a playable humanoid dragon race
Just say no to Elves.
No.
What about the humanoid dragon?

Dragons generally don't side with the lesser races unless something is world threatening.

It would be fun... What other races would be a nice change?
I can't think of any other race out there that would be willing to join either Alliance or Horde. The naga are evil and used to work for Illidan, but are now with the Old Gods. Dragons are too good/evil to be in either faction. Ogres are a possibility for the Horde, the Stonemauls in particular. Murlocs are a big no...lol. Any race to join the factions would have to be alien to Azeroth or we'd make a new discovery along the way. I don't think there will be another race in the next expansion after MoP, but perhaps a new class.

Nothing really.

Draenei, gnomes, trolls, and tauren have all suffered from pretty bad neglect for years. Worgen are headed into that same pit and pandaren will most likely after MoP. There's just not room for more races because humans and orcs take the majority of the story development.
Sea Elves? They have a more well known name, Naga.

Also we already have enough races that aren't getting lore, no reason to add to that list.
Naga and possibly titan-related mermen.

Drakonid, dragonmen, and saurok.
Sea Elves? So... basically mer people?

We have those. They prefer the name "naga", though.

No, just no.
C' mon guys you have to agree that Ogres are basically made for the Horde. Even in the lore the first Horde included Ogres. I can understand though how the size of them might seem some what "intimidating" to other members, and that a bunch of kids would start complaining about how it was "unfair", so a resolution to this could be Half-Ogres or something along those lines, so that they will be somewhat smaller in stature. The Alliance though will be more tricky, honestly I think the only race that is currently in WoW that has not been playable and could be a quality race and not something Blizz pulls out of their butts, would have to be Furblogs. I know it sounds humorous but Blizz could add in some sweet racial trait to them and pimp them out. I bet gnomes sounded hilarious at first but now Gnome locks are dominating bgs. These are just ideas and I hope some guy from Blizz will read this and take the idea seriously.
