    Oh yeah, that is true too. They weren't always like that. I still think the unbound form would make a fun racial without any real benefits, like the worgen form!

    Thanks for the awesome sig, Lady Amuno.

    This is what they really look like:

    Most likely.



    What the fuck? The Arrakoa have no connection to the Alliance.



    What the fuck? The Wolvar have no connection to the Alliance.



    What the fuck? The Vrykul are enemies of the Alliance and actively despise Humans as their deformed children.



    What the fuck? A historically neutral dragonflight joining with the Alliance?



    What the fuck? A totally made up race?



    What the fuck? The Ethereals have no connection to the Alliance.


    Contrary to popular belief, you can't just make up or choose whatever shitty race you think is 'cool' to assume to be a future Alliance/Horde race. Guess what? Every playable race we have in game has been established since Warcraft 3 or further, so... Hate to be a big let-down, but they're not gonna implement some stupid weaboo fan-race with no prior lore backing, nor pick a race that has absolutely no history with the Alliance or Horde aside from one-off villains made to swell enemy ranks in an old expansion.
    Pandas say high.

    There doesn't need to be a connection to anything...they can create a connection. That's the great thing about having a fantasy game, you can do wathever the fuck you want if you write it properly and got your shit down.

    It's not the first and surely won't be the last time Blizz has made a weird change lore wise to make something work ingame.

    Aside from that, I think that instead of being an issue, the unbound form actually makes for a pretty cool racial, rather than an obstruction.
    True, I also like the Etherals, I just can't for the mind of me imagine one wearing anything other than their magical wrappings... Also I don't see how you would be able to give them any customization other than color or form of the wrappings. =/

    Okay, that was odd. Our posts got mixed up. I'm quoting your post, but my post ended up before yours.


    @Moka xD

    Well, for hair and facial customization, they could make the wrappings sort of give that shape. Like, the wrappings taking the form of long hair for instance.


    As for armor. If Blizzard is ever planning to do armor with more geosets (modeled chest instead of flat textures) like they said they wanted to do, then Ethereals would really need that. The armor would have to cover the wrappings. Would look kinda odd having flat textures on the bandages.

    Thanks for the awesome sig, Lady Amuno.

    Their bodies were ripped apart, they are just pure energy right now. What difference is there even between their genders now? I doubt they can breed together without bodies... No idea how they replicate now, cloning?

    Adding gear on top of their magical wrappings would look silly. =/

    Someone absolutely MUST go to Blizzcon dressed as a female ogre. Actually, several of you. How about an entire army? You could demand to be in the next xpac...

    How would it? It's how they do it now, after all. They wear armor over their wrappings as it is. It only would look silly if Blizzard didn't overhaul their armor geoset base, which would mean that they are going to stick with flat textures for chests/pants.

    Thanks for the awesome sig, Lady Amuno.

    I don't think it'd stop them to retain their masculine/feminine personalities, even if they did lose their ability to procreate naturally.

    If they are to be added, I'm sure Blizzard will make it work.

    I guess the brain damage induced by trying to imagine female ogres is the reason Diablo 3 is so bad. I mean once the image of Rosie O'Donnell in a loincloth pops into your head you have to lose some motor skills and perhaps some involuntary brain functions shut down.

    They can take male shapes right now, why not female shapes? They don't even need to add breasts (though, knowing Blizzard, they probably will), just give them a rounder, softer, and more subtle-- less blocky and thus more feminine shape.

    Exactly. Even elementals have genders by the way.

    I'm not so sure about there being more playable races but personally not saying it wouldn't happen. I could much rather see the existing races have most if not all classes opened up to them. Loving all of the fanmade ogre ladies in this thread, though! If they looked even remotely close to those examples I'd roll one!

    This isn't my image, but the same concept I have of fem Ogres in my head. They would be wonderful as another neutral race.
    I'd roll one of them xD

    But personally I tohught Ogres would be a great addition tot he Horde, maybe the same time Furbolgs for alliance, they also need a female model too, Furbolgs in general need a model overhaul.

    Speaking of Forsaken, they can do something similar to the way that Foraken show bones and joints in their rmour. Just have sections where their energy is visible through gashes in the armour/gaps between key areas (ie, knees, elbows, ect)

    just a case of fanwank thinking random mobs are so cool they need to be the focus of the story as opposed to established groups that have been integral since, oh, day one.

    The more I think about it, the more I'm starting to realize that Blizzard may have reached the end of playable classes for WoW. That could explain why they're now working on updating the old race models.

    It's a fact: the ogres will be a playable race for the Horde eventually. Moreover, the right time for its introduction is the next expansion: the back to Outland, planet of the ogres.

    And most interesting is undoubtedly the introduction of the Alliance race that would be the counterpart to the ogres, I refer of course to the high elves.

    In the next expansion with the return of Alleria, the High Elves have every chance of being the playable race that the Alliance has been waiting so long ...
