So, about that Mark of the Wild. The best part of the expansion.
The Allied Races look pretty great, for the most part. And it's wonderful that we'll get more slots per server, in order to facilitate leveling some of them; however, I'm really bummed that there was no mention of an increase in overall character slots. per account. I can see me now, berating myself while deleting some alts on older servers in order to make these characters.I do hope we get some more customization for existing races, but I suppose it won't be happening any time soon, with all the work that gone into all these new models for the expansion, and the work that's gone into these new Allied Races. I watched some of Jesse's stream of Zandalar, and it seemed to have a really awesome aesthetic. Highmountain Tauren Racials look like they're in a really good place, but Lightforged Draenei Racials feel a little lackluster. The holy explosion on death thing seems neat enough, I suppose, in theory, but overall, it feels like they need another, or the Demonbane one needs reworking.
I really, really hope they can introduce Zandalari and Dark Iron Dwarves until release. I'll have to change all 7 (of my 13) characters to Zandalari because only 7 of those classes are available unfortunately. Need to bank on some $$$ for that mass race change once introduced. !
The racial bonuses and abilities are pretty interesting; also, can't wait to hear more details regarding the stat squish...
Interested in what the other racial abilities will be.
Finally a well deserved stat squish.
Lightforged Draenei Racials seem a bit overpowered. o_o
new races sounds like fun but I already have so many toons at the other races I hate to make new toons, but some of them I might be interested in a race change maybe... not sure depends what is available when they come out.
Thank you for all the great coverage!
I wish we could've gotten the Taunka. But, I'm glad we're finally getting SOME kind of sub-race options.
Highmountain seem quite strong.
And the space? I have 12 characters. I will have more 3 slots or I will have to choose just one and have to pay to change race if I like one more?
Seeing the new Zandalari trolls makes me want to race change all my toons as soon as I unlock their allied race! They're so tough looking yet so fancy!
Can't wait to see the racials for the other races. The new draenei and tauren ones were pretty interesting, at the very least.
More racials more imbalance.. =)
Draenei beards. Yeeessssss. My draenei priest will definitely be making the switch to lighforged.
The Highmountain Tauren racial looks useful.
Interested to see the other racials coming with the new allied races, and if any changes are going to be made to the existing class racials.
I enjoyed checking out the demo on the show floor, but it took a while to get used to having no macros/addons.
Heh, I guess the Lightforged Draenei just have the Vindicaar hovering above them for their racial.
