    Nice one Blizz! Really good move here.

    People will still have to buy the xpacs to level, but you're not forcing them to roll a "Lame" (For lack of a better term, they simply may not like anything bar worgen or Blood Elf!) race.

    Urge to kill... fading...

    It's about time, lol. :3 Shoulda done this years ago, but kudos to finally doing it. Probably a better marketing plan as well, as new players probably would more easily become attached if they can play a race they'd prefer on the trial, instead of buying all of the expansions first.

    You know it will happen. It'll be the Beta invites from AP all over again. ._.

    This is a very smart move by Blizzard. I introduced a friend to the game a while back. We both made Taurens and levelled them to 20. He didn't feel like continuing. I'd like to think that introducing him via the Worgen/Hoblin zone could have changed that.

    Both Pandaren and the monk will NOT be available to play UNTILL september 25th, regardless of expansion.
    Pandaren will be available to play regardless of expansion, and the monk will be released for players WITH MoP following September 25th

    No. It says "races" not "classes."

    This doesn't mean that Pandas come on 28th of August.
    It also doesn't mean that level 90 characters are available to WoW only players.

    shhhh... you'll spoil everyone's excitement.



    ...and my fun of laughing at players on the forums.

    It's not that hard to understand...

    Currently, you have to buy Cata to make a Worgen or Goblin. After the patch, anyone will be able to make a Worgen or Goblin, even if they don't have Cata.

    Pandaren will also be available for everyone, but only after MoP has launched in September.

    This isn't adding new race/class combinations and isn't saying that you can create non-Monk Pandaren before MoP.

    I think some game is taking an arrow in the knee? And it's not wow or skyrim.

    No new race/class combos.
    No panderan before MoP release.

    I don't really like this change.

    All this complaining is simply further proof that Blizzard could send each and every player a real-life wish-granting flying unicorn carrying a solid gold plate of chocolate chip cookies wrapped in hundred dollar bills, and someone would whine that Blizzard sucks for not letting them choose oatmeal raisin.
