    well if by chance the next expansion concerns the burning legion I would surly hope it ties into the Draenei back-story involving Argus.

    If they feel the need to flush out a horde race they could go with the undead, as it is possible the Legion could be capable of manipulating the undead as arthas did(which would be great lorewise because sylvanas would undoubtedly require assistance from Ogrimmar to keep shit under control which could help unite the horde for the final battle .

    And I sees Pandas doing Kung Fu all over the place.

    When you see someone in a thread making the same canned responses over and over, click their name, click view forum posts, and see if they are a troll. Then don't feed them.

    Call me bias, but the bilgewater cartel have little to no lore. Even the Gilneas / Worgen story had a pretty good back story and is still ongoing with the forsaken.
    Gnomeregan is pretty much in the same position as the Bilgewater Goblins.

    At least the Draenei / Blood Elves story continued throughout the Burning crusade expansion.

    My major gripe with lore development in Wow is there inability to reuse minor characters they have created. Nazgrim and Taylor are a great example of what Blizzard should be doing. Each faction should have better fleshed out military hierarchy. We should know the commanders. Need to break through the Alliance lines? Call in the Gob Squad. Want to send a message to the Horde? Send in Darius Crowley and his pack of Worgen to tear the Horde a new one. Instead they just create new generic leaders we don't care about.

    Malganis + taking over forsaken = fun story, but not necessarily linked with Burning Legion. Not right away anyways. Mal'ganis wants revenge for himself.

    Bilgewater Goblins specifically are all over the place post-cata. Felwood, Twilight Highlands, Orgrimmar, Azshara, Ashenvale, to name a few. Worgen get a town in Blasted Lands, a couple of places in Felwood and a few quests in Duskwood; that's about it.

    Not really; the entire Gilneas/Worgen story was pretty much only to the benefit of the Forsaken. The Worgen story is only ongoing insofar as one uses their imagination to picture the Battle of Gilneas BG as being the actual battle for Gilneas.

    Sure they are all over the place but do you really think they have much substance?

    Not the best example but have a look a the Goblin wowpedia page.
    Its pretty fucking pissy.

    Draenei for sure. They deserve the spotlight if it's a BL expansion up next.

    Humans are the superior race, and should be highlighted in the next expansion.

    I'm surprised that tauren and orcs got any votes, seeing as how they are blood thirsty murderers.

    Who isn't a bloodthirsty murderer at this point? That's right no one.
    He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.

    Unfucking night elves would nice. First step would be having Tyrande die a hilariously humiliating death and replacing her with somebody competent. If having gnomes rounded up and grilled in a massive fire created by warlocks is considered development, then that too.

    Draenei, worgen and faction pandaren (Houjin/tushui).


    13/11/2014: Remember this date, for it is the date warlords of draenor fucked up the servers and proved blizzard can't do launches.

    Actually, specifying the faction Pandaren is a pretty good point. They're completely irrelevant outside of their starting experiences.

    Don't even like em but still voted Gnome. They continue to feel like and afterthought.
    Vote with your wallet if you don't like something. Otherwise just keep your mouth shut.

    Should've been multi-choice imo. Went with Trolls because what do we -really- learn about them other than they have voodoo and get killed a lot? From Vanilla until the Zandalar we really never learned anything about them lorewise.
    You are now future Jack Noir.

    Presently, you are trapped in a single moment, which increasingly feels like an eternity. Your boredom is surpassed only by your all consuming rage and contempt for existence itself.

    Trips while doing battle in her high heels and ceremonial priestess garb and impales herself in the throat with an arrow while drowning in a puddle of mud. She asks Elune for a prayer of healing and Elune says "you let me down, dear, you let me down".

    How can she impale herself on an arrow if she's out of arrows?

    Given that it will be them and Draenei not getting new models and that they are overshadowed due to being in a non-matching faction, they need a strong leverage to stand their ground as a race. In addition to that, they require some respect after all those immature comments about them being gay and all.

    Goblins in general are deeply woven into the WoW lore, we have a lot of lore all over the place it just isn't only the Bilgewater Cartel. Still Goblins are around everywhere even in Pandaria.

    No, just no. Belfs have a lot of lore from Wc 1-3 to fall back on, they had an entire expansion to themselves with the other race not being of importance at all and the worst fit in WoW history and now they get several patches dedicated to them. They are done, other races should get their time in the focus now.
