Hi all! I have a new race idea. (Like the masses before me. )
I would love to see a race that was very reptilian. The lands could be desert based or swamp based. I like the idea of a race that both sides can play but they need to be more distinct by which side they align with. Perhaps Swampy with Alliance/Desert dwellers with Horde or vice-versa. The desert version longer and thin built for speed with a rill of horns like an iguana. The bog dweller short and fat like a toad but with horns on the arms/elbows and tail end and big upright tusks from the mouth.
I would expect an easy way to introduce them would be that they were in hibernation or on a 'land of the lost/galapagos' style of island that is undiscovered. However, this would be too cliche based on how we just had Pandarens being a 'lost' race. How about a new portal opening into another realm/world like the BC Dark Portal. We didn't fully stop the Twilight Council (or perhaps the Shadow Council and the Burning Blade under Garrosh) and they created another Dark Portal (One of Many!) leading to another realm. Maybe even a race lost in time and being able to bring them to the present with the help of the Bronze Dragonflight.
My racial ideas would be:
Concealment (10 sec loss of aggro)
Winged Leap (10 second controlled jump)
(like the Warrior leap and Goblin booster but pilotable)
Fear (3 sec fear)
Eat Critter (2 min feeding frenzy buff increasing hit chance 1% by eating a critter)
I would love to see them play as:
Another change I would make is in the druid forms:
- Tank - Turtle
- DPS - Komodo Dragon/Alligator/Crocodile
- Heals - Gecko
What do you think? Any thoughts? Too much like Saurok? I've thought about this for a while but with the new expansion coming out, I thought I'd throw this out there.
