What kind of animal would you like the next playable race to be based on, if it is based on an animal?

(I'm kinda tired of animals, but at the same time, animal races are easy to do, so I expect to see more of them.)

I think that I should've combined some options a bit more. All amphibians as an option, allowing sheep or goats to be an option. Raccoons and raccoon dogs could also have been combined, despite them not being nearly as close as they look. Oh well, what's done is done.

I actually want Virus Form for Druids. It'd be their Mind Control spell.

Axolotls. Because there's nothing that can't be improved by adding axolotls.

I don't know what to vote for. On one hand, I'm tired of mammals, but on the other hand, I love cats and foxes, and bats would be interesting. Of course, foxes are kinda similar to worgen, and I don't really like how Blizzard does their cat races, so that should make things easier. Sadly, it doesn't!

I demand some strong and tall Salamander/Komodo Dragon-type motherfuckers. Large reptilian aliens/races are the shit.

You know, I voted insectoid because every Old God has an insect race and I thought it might be interesting to see N'Zoth's, but reptilian sounds good to.

It's one thing to have problems and voice your concerns, but when you endlessly bitch day in and day out about the same tired old shit, it honestly makes me wonder why you are even here. Generally when somebody doesn't like something, they stop caring about it.

And on that note, SoL is a forum I no longer enjoy. So, I'm done here. And I genuinely think the people who have absolutely nothing at all positive to say about the game and, the people whose posts are composed entirely of whining, really consider leaving (or at least sticking to non-WoW sections). Because if you truly get no enjoyment out of WoW, then why are you here?

With that said, goodbye.

In the end I voted for insects/arachnids. I want them to be infested humanoids. Kinda like the Zerg and Kerrigan, but the Old Gods did.

After seeing Dawn of the Planet of the Apes I think that an ape race would be pretty cool.

Voted Jackal because I like the idea of an Egyptian-themed race of Jackals, maybe on a large Island south of Uldum, who were once guarding a titan facility or were evolved by it.

Turtle people would be cool to. Imagine a Fury Warrior Turtle Man. But I guess those would get problems with portraying the difference between males and females - or it would look ridiculous.

Anyway I would love something PLAYABLE that's Egyptian or Polynesian inspired.

That's why I absolutely had to include jackals. Setesh's servants would be awesome as a PC race, although Egyptian cats that aren't Tol'vir would also be interesting, with their very own, as of yet, undiscovered Titanic Guardian racial leader.

I've always wanted there to be a small playable Bat race.

My idea was to introduce them in the Emerald Dream expansion, they were a small tribal like people who escaped the Burning Legion during the sundering by taking refuge in the Emerald Dream. (didn't work out to many details).

They'd live in a Large hollowed out tree that they call the "mother Tree" surviving off its nutrient rich sap which they farm.
