I find it interesting they are setting up Forsaken characters other than Sylvanas. If they don't all die by the end of the book... Sylvanas might not be as necessary as she looks!

Yeah I hope the Desolation Council gets to stay.

They make sense and opposition is good.

I really doubt they’ll ever get rid of Sylvanas. It’s nice that she gets challenged once in a while though.

Nobody would've ever thought Varian 'I am the Alliance Lore' Wrynn would've died, either...

The fact that he had a son, who received a lot of development, combined with his own fear of dying and leaving said son unprepared, were clues.

*cough* Nathanos *cough*

Back on topic, with the way they’re implementing allied races and a total of four “unique” elf races soon to be playable, I daresay the likelihood of playable furbolg is at an all time high.

I agree.

This allied race is a nice way to include less flashy races like furbolgs and ogres.

What skeleton would be used for furbolgs, thought? Pandaren does not fit. Heavily modified fat worgens?

I'd personally be fine if they used the pandaren model for the furbolg the same way they used the draenei model for the Argus broken. Just gotta tinker with the animations, the head shape, and maybe the way they stand to make it a little truer to the current model.

I'd also take a modified challenge mode bear form, if something was done to make the arms less gorilla-like.

I'll go ahead and assume that by "furbolgs" you actually mean "elves wearing furry suits" or some shit. And if I'm right, it's not too far fetched an idea really, Blizzard do like them their elf flavours.

The problem with the pandaren model is in animations, not shape.

Shape can be changed easily, but the pandaren animations are too civilized, calma, precise. I can't imagine a furbolg sitting like a pandaren, giving a /yes as a pandaren or even jumping as a pandaren.

I chose worgen because at least the animations fit a savage race better.

I wonder if the void elves will get their void powers from draining a void naaru. It would be a nice parallel to the original blood elves who got the Light from draining a naaru and it would also showcase their own hypocrisy. They'd be exiling the void elves for doing the exact thing they did a few years ago.

Do you think we’ll get one allied race per classic-BC races, or just whatever’s in high demand? The only thing I can see the undead get as an allied race are the San’layn or undead like Nathanos.

A thought - What of those Nar'thalas Farondis Elves? A harkon back to the April Fools Wisp race for the Alliance, but I do kinda find it cool to play as a sect of begotten undead Highborne Elves that are part of Farondis' court. Would be a good counter to the Suramar Nightborne on the Broken Isles. I know, this idea shouldn't be taken too seriously, but I found it fun to play around with in my mind.

Also during the early days of the Legion expack in the Fall of 2016, I know of a few people who took to RPing the cursed spirits of Azsuna, and it was rather fun.

Whatever's in high demand I would guess. They are allied races, not subraces, so they don't have to do the one-to-one thing.

And that actually solved the biggest problem I had with sub-races. I'd rather have Wildhammer Dwarves in addition to Dark-Irons rather than trying to shoehorn in a Worgen or Gnome option. Althought now that I think of it, Night-elf Worgen would be kinda cool.

Guys, you're still talking about subraces of a main race. This isn't the case anymore. Allied races don't need to be linked to a main race. There doesn't need to be a worgen allied race - it doesn't make sense. There can be allied races related to no main race.

I didn’t include worgen or goblins. I doubt they’re going to introduce naga, ethereals, or ogres as allied races.

While I don't disagree with the overall message, it's likely that most allied races will be variants of already existing races given that that's easier to implement.

And worgen... They're the only multi-species "race!" Of course it makes sense!

Yeah if we got something that wasn't a variant then that wouldn't be an allied race, it'd just be a new race.

As long as they use the model and/or animations of a main race, they're open, such as jinyu (nelf skeleton), tuskarr or furbolg with pandaren or worgen skeletons, etc.

Well they gave the Zandalari a unique rig. Don’t know if that means skeleton, but they did say it took longer than the other races.

Do you think my newfound dream of playing an earthen shaman has any chance of coming true?
