I see all to often players suggesting the idea of playable Ethereals. While they might look cool, there is not much to distinguish from one another. They have no face, they have no body, and above everything else they lack a gender. When Dimensius the All-Devouring invaded their home planet, it is said the arcane energies ripped their mortal bodies to shreds, and they had to bind their souls to empowered pieces of cloth to BARELY survive without a body.
This leaves us with a few things that are key for RPGs...
- Gender (Physical appearance of one)
- Distinguishable features (Different faces..etc)
I am not looking for a flame war, I am just curious how Ethereals could work for as a playable race within WoW, when they lack some major points of what makes the heroes of Azeroth unique.
