I know this wont happen , but wouldnt it be cool to have an 2 headed ogre... maybe for a special event or guild quest or something , where each head is a different playable class and you and your friend get to play togather with it ? Like comunicating who is going to cast now since you have 1 body and 2 heads , cant cast 2 spells at once , stuff like that...
On a note for Ethereals... i dont think they can be a playable race since...well...they are ethereals , bit hard to put a shield and a steel plate on it maybe ?
For class i do hope for some sort of a warlord , that would be cooler than a demon hunter , atleast for me.
How could Naga even be a playable race? What would Blizzard do about the boots and pants slot for armor?
Personally, my vote is for Arakkoa as the NEW race.

PM if you add me!
Reading this thread reminds me of how many people actually know lore.

OMG 13:37 - Then Jesus said to His disciples, "Cleave unto me, and I shall grant to thee the blessing of eternal salvation."
And His disciples said unto Him, "Can we get Kings instead?"
As much as I want neutral Ethereals to be the new race, we really need something new. Maybe like the Tengu in Guild Wars?
There is no new race. There will not be one. Quote me on this, then make a thread about me being wrong. But seriously, all your assumptions and hopes are wrong.
"Naga", no, please explain a boot and leg slot.
Anything else, invalid.

Blizz could justify each faction got a race from the opposing faction, and the broken models already exist. Draenei were on Draenor.
Naga just put their tail through one leg hole of a pair of trousers and wear one boot at the end of their tail
If I had my druthers, I'd want either Saurok, Drakonids, or Naga on the Alliance. I'd really love to play a more sinister rooted, scaly race and be with the "righteous" faction I've been playing on for the past 7+ years. I like that juxtaposition.
I think ogres would be a slam duck as far as how easily they'd fit into the horde, but just because it's easy doesn't make it the right thing. I'm not sure what I'd choose.
Rudimentary creatures of blood and flesh. You touch my mind, fumbling in ignorance, incapable of understanding.
You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it.
i can't imgaine the broken would want to be allied with the orcs who were the people who broke them to begin with
i imagine a Faction of Manari Eredar defectors leaving the legion and seeking refuge with the Horde since Orcs are also essentially defectors from the Legion and would be sympathetic.
Now it's not that difficult really. As you mention they are already designed to wear armor, even pants. It is just coiled around them instead. So the issue with the pants are solved already.
The feet is also quite easy to fix. Why do they need anything? They could wear nothing or just have a tail ring as their foot model. Tauren, Troll, Draenai doesn't wear boots either so I can't see the issue really. :s
The only issue I see with Naga is the riding. How do they mount anything. Though that can also be fix'd incredibly easy. They can just ride sideways, which is a totally and possibly way of riding.
I would also like to note this just for the fun of it: Metzen has stated that he would like naga to be playable one day along with goblins (who have since become playable in Cataclysm), and ogres. Due to their general role as villains, it is likely the playable naga would be like the Draenei are to the demonic Eredar. Greg Street has commented that incorporating naga as a playable race "would present some unique challenges, such as lack of pants."
I could also see them be somewhat like the Worgen in that they have the Naga form but can transform into a Highborne/High Elven form while out of combat.
The only real issue is that they wouldn't fit in a Draenor expansion, unless it has something to do with Azshara. And before anyone mentions that every naga is following Azshara then that is incorrect. We know that there are Naga that follows Neptulon, though it's possibly a very small minority.

Let me explain: playable Worgenb currently come from the time when the curse happened, which was about 2 years ago in terms of lore.That means that all playable Worgen currently are cursed, and are first generation Worgen. There hasn't been enough time for them to start [popping out children removed from the curse.
The Highhborne were transformed 10,000 years ago. While some Naga still alive have survived since the Sundering, they have had 10,000 years to populate their race far removed from the Mortal race's wars on the land. Now, what does this mean? They're not giving birth to Highborne cursed to be Naga. At this point, any future generation of Naga are pure Naga, and entirely removed from their Highborne progenitors original forms. Due to their prodigious breeding(enough to push Murlocs out of their environments), it's safe to say that from here on, Naga are as related to Highborne as the Highborn were related to the Dark Trolls.
