I don't like how the vrykul took the earthens' spot as "the" titan-forged race.

Yea I don't care for the vrykul but the game files hint heavily towards naga and vrykul

These are skeletons that appear when players get their bodies. They are the only non playable races with these (though there's no female vrykul here and the male is currently a modified night elf skeleton).

WoWhead preview of Antorus with NPCs present.



I really like how its not just the raid doing the fighting, that you can constantly see Legion and Army of the Light troops in battle on the backdrops for the raid. It makes the battle feel huge and epic.

I really hope the Argus and raid music is good. Legion is hit and miss with so much dreary music for everything especially the Legion. I mean sure it fits but I vastly preferred WoD's style of music.

Ugh I hope not. I have a phobia of Naga. Blizzard should have a rule for playable races: mammalian species only. And I mean proper mamammalian. Sticking tits on a snake-fish thing doesn't count.

Since I absolutely love the vrykul, anything Norse-themed and all the runic stuff, count me in.

I also really really like deep sea stuff like the Naga.

Is the game world compatable with a playable race as big as the Vrykul? And if they're shrunk down, they'll just look like a human-dwarf hybrid.

Not every race is for every person.

I feel like the only way to make that interesting is Vykrul for Horde and Naga for Alliance.

Otherwise, its just another arcane elf for horde and taller humans for Alliance

Yeah, but independent naga seem to be more aligned to the concept of being a forsaken race with small numbers that wants to survive in a 'foreign' world that does not want them. That was, in theory, the core philosophy of the Horde when it started in wow.

Meanwhile the mainstream vrykul fit too easily into the Alliance with them being creations and followers of the Titans, having a direct genetic link between them and other races of the faction and their duty to protect the world.

Eh that makes it sound like 7.3 is a bad patch since expansions doesn't add much stuff take Legion for instance buying Legion gives you access to stuff like dh and the artifact system and class garrisons ( let's be honest they changed what made order halls exciting the stuff about sending your guys into a zone and they would discover a rare or a cave for you also class flavor stuff) 7.0 added transmog system and class reworks and stuff

Maybe they were planned for Legion but Blizzard gave up on them? They make sense in Legion context, dunno if Vrykul will make any sense moving forward.

(Thought I'd like to see Vrykul in the Horde. They fit with the Horde mentality and would be a new "pretty race" there).

Well, Naga are Night Elves mutated by old god energies, right? So it'd make sense for them to have mammary glands from their former forms.

I heard a quote sometime ago about how much the Naga hate the horde and would rather serve the Night Elves if they had to. Which makes me sad, I think Naga would fit better on the horde.

Why would they hate the Horde? They have almost no history together, and the blood elves would be closer to the naga than the night elves.

I think Naga fits the Horde better. Most remaining known races fit the Horde better. IMO, only Arakkoa and Ethereals are somewhat Alliance-like.

Vrykul are boring as fuck. Literally bigger humans.

Nu-Vikings please get out.

Naga are one thing, but yeah I just absolutely don't see what vrykul bring to the table here. Dwarves have the titan connection and rune magic, orcs have the warrior barbarian culture, otherwise they're just big humans.

Vrykul are awesome.

They're what keep me from stopping playing a warrior. I just can't leave it, it's so awesome now.
