    They added several other NPC race masks. They did not lie to us, however.

    Did not see the GC tweet. Would benefit if the GC tweet was inserted via edit into the first post.

    This would be dissembling and misdirection. I get that you want a 4th spec, but lets be real here- if this was anywhere close to the truth, GC wouldn't have touched it at fucking all. No one made him respond or anything.

    No, "they" don't. This is GC, on his weekend, tweeting. If there was a 4th spec, or a tinker, he wouldn't have even bothered with yet another rumor. But this dumb image keeps popping up, so I'm THRILLED he fucking said it was fake.

    Again, if your response is "Aw, he probably is just trying to hide the true parts with some Jedi mind trick"... again, no help for you, I got nothing.

    "But with no other evidence, I'm not holding my breath." That pretty much says I don't think the SS is real either...how are you missing that?...

    Because you wouldn't even entertain the thought if you had seen GC debunk it before you posted. I'm making the point that the OP or a mod should edit the orig post to point to the GC tweet- here's from the OP:

    "Some guy on the US forums (Not me) apparently got emailed by "accident" a leaked image referring to class set up for next expansion. Pretty sure its BS but even if totally fake it still is interesting and if were true it would be awesome IMO."

    If he really believed that, he'd update it now that it's been debunked.


    Well, or he's not paying attention and a mod should do it! Not many going to read 38 pages to find out it's been debunked, so the remainder of this thread will just be people saying "hey I don't believe that" or "hey, that could be true", when neither is needed.

    The best part about this, is that the other masks weren't complete red herrings. Blizzard later said that they considered doing ogres instead of goblins, but couldn't make up their minds on how to handle things like females (which would explain the female mask clearly being from a piece of concept art we've never seen). I mean, they had pretty obviously decided on Worgen and Goblin by the time the masks were leaked, but the ogres masks seemed representative of an earlier point in development.

    They class icon for the tinker wouldn't even be done yet. This is complete bullshit if I have ever seen it. The monk and DK icons weren't ever implemented till mid beta, plus can you imagine blizzard adding 15 new specs to the game? one of each of the 12 classes and then the regular three for a tinker? And you think balancing pvp/pve is hard now? you have to be really hard headed and stubborn to think they would add 15 new specs when they already have there hands full with 33. Never going to happen.

    Nah, actually they were red herrings. While they had considered making ogres playable (and they still could, and probably will eventually), the masks they added were low quality scans. The female ogre mask was I think a scan from the RPG book- not even an in-character model to work with.

    Ogres are still legit as a PC race in the future, of course. But the masks weren't related to that.

    Didn't know this thread was still going so I've edited OP to stop people posting who don't know that this has already been called out fake.

    Yep, Blizzard is secretely working on 4th speccs for all classes... which is almost like creating 3,5 classes, where they're just able to put out *one* class every so often (every 2 xpacs as of now).

    Please.. use brainz, or give it to your nearby zombie.
    Most people do not realize the talent and skill it requires to be in a top guild. Many of you think its only about time invested, but that couldn't be further from the truth.

    Honestly if it was a major feature of an expansion would it make you angry? I think if it is a Major feature of this expansion it would blow away most major features they have ever added in comparison. Now we know that the image floating around is fake but the fact that they almost quadrupled their dev team means something big for wow is coming.

    I dont doubt the idea of new classes being added in the future, unlike some people. Because balance is not achievable.. WoW is bound to have more classes, races and whatever, like it or not. And even if they hire 5000 new devs, they couldnt come up with ~3 classes (in form of a 4th specc for everyone) in just one expansion.

    Every time I see this on the front page I get excited then die a little inside when I open it.
    It would be dark inside my head...if not for the fires...

    Oh come on don't you think that's a little bit dramatic? I'm pretty sure they could creatively throw paint at the wall for a new spec for everything over the lifespan of a single expansion especially now when most every mechanic in the game is just a rehash of another classes mechanic. The majority of the "bones" of every spec they'll ever add is probably already in the game they just aren't combined in the correct order or tweaked yet.

    Demon hunter? more like Dark ranger, that would've been perfect

    To clarify my post, yes, the ogre masks were red herrings and meant nothing about the expansion at that point. However, they weren't just any random thing thrown together. The male ogre is just part from a texture, but I have yet to find where the artwork that female ogre face comes from. I own all the RPG books and it's not from there. I admit, it's an assumption, but the fact that they later said they were considering ogres (and saw females and two-heads as challenges) before settling on goblins, makes it sound logical to me that the female mask comes from a piece of concept art they did when throwing around ideas on what the females should look like.

    But my guess was a bit larger than that (and I stress the guess part). Apparently in the past they listed nagas alongside ogres as races they'd like to try to do at some point. I have a suspicion (again, just a suspicion based on vague ideas, not real evidence) that the red herring masks, while definitely red herrings, were at least partially a development in-joke, being based on races they've been considering (and at least one of those seriously considered for that very expansion, by their own admission).
