    I wouldn't mind Naga's side saddle.

    If anything you're an anti contrarian high elf detractor who can't seem to resist tooting their horn over what won't happen. Meanwhile we have dozens of pages of people putting real thought and nuance into this issue you just dismiss with hit and run media sound bite pot shots. I think everyone else gets it, you don't like the idea or have some issue compelling you to shoot it down. Meanwhile it's next to Wildhammers and Mag'har and Dark Irons it's been the flag ship for this issue for many many years. You're perspective needs a reformat.

    yeah i see side saddle working just fine for naga.

    not to mention blizzards mentioned a couple times throughout wows lifetime that naga are a race they would like to add in some day.

    their right up there with ogres. just a matter of the right expansion.

    i think satyr for alliance and naga for horde would work really well in an azshara expansion.

    both used to be night elves, both were created roughly around the same time, they both served azshara so they would both fit and they each have their own unique culture and racial identity.

    its also relatively easy to make them join each side.

    theres naga that worship neptulon even above azshara and were branded heretics after azshara turned on neptulon, they could have the naga we play as be a band of heretics who reach out to the horde to stop azshara and restore neptulon to the throne of tides

    there is a satyr in ashenvale that gets let back in by the night elves and after he sacrifices his own heart to save a little girl he turns back into a night elf, the satyr we play as could be trying to follow his example and try to redeem themselves

    All we know is that we won't have Naga Rogues or Monks, Kick, Spinning Crane Kick and Blackout Kick are out of the option. While you could substitute a tail slap for Kick and Black Out Kick with SCK that's kinda hard.

    On a more serious note, I'd rather have sub races than new races. The reason for that is mostly that I'm an altoholic and want to play em all. Well except undead, never liked them.

    Agreed on both, though Blizzard may up the ante and go with Naga for Horde and Ethereals for Alliance, as Satyr are nowhere near as popular as either race. How they join will depend on what Azshara's motives, at any time, are. I suspect she loathes Sargeras, as Xavius failed to disclose the true reasons for the Legion's arrival on Azeroth, so you could always end up with a cynical pact between her and one of the factions. She is very powerful and would be a great ally in any battle with the Legion. On the other hand, she could be built up (sadly) as a villain, with the Neptulon strain being playable, as you say.

    The other thing people tend to forget about the amphibian Naga is that they're reptiles, not fish, and have powerful bodies. They move with agility on land, and much faster yet underwater. So they have no issue with land movement. Blizzard may just have to be a little creative in designing lower body gear for them, and fitting them on mounts.

    Start trying to work out who deserves what, and before long you’ll spend the rest of your days weeping for each and every person in the world.

    Anyone want some of the playable races to look like the Heroes of the Storm models?

    For playable Ogres;

    I would love that scar and the tattoes around him would be sweet, and the skin colour, facial features could have so many options and look at the heads. You could have a one-headed two eyed Ogre, or a one-headed one-eyed Ogre and so forth.
    I just think it would be nice if Ogres got a new updated model with more poses, and changed the Warlords model a bit and add some horns to it.


    New Night Elf;


    Also wouldn't Heroes of the Storm be a good starter for a more updated game for a Warcraft IV in which you get achivement points for doing certain things for a campaign and talk to people on your Battlenet ID and even let people see your achivements and the stuff that you did.

    Heroes of the Storm is heavily stylized and probably isn't too indicative of what we'll see in terms of new WoW models.

    Heroes has the huge benefit of not needing to have modular consistently placed armor changes for each unit. That alone makes the character design much more free than WoW's could ever be.
    blah, new sig... something something

    i think the ogre is a good indication of what we might get but yeah most of them are pretty stylized, plus since its a brand new pc game they dont have to worry as much about making the models "too good" plus what others have said about the whole no armor thing

    HOTS just shows what a WOW2 could look like with an engine created today, and that's with miniature isometric scale models. Some of them make WOW look painfully outdated, some of them look more limited than WOW, but at the end of the day t hey kick all kinds of ass. I'd love an Ogre in WOW that looked half that cool, but Heroes has a more edgier style than WOW's whimsical caricature style. Still, it just shows how frankly stupid everyone sounded when this project was first announced claiming Blizzard might struggle to make the classic races of this game look good and even,.. I have to stop to laugh here, even scrap the project if it somehow wasn't able to turn out as good as they wanted it too,... as if WOW's classic races are not what their artists live and fucking breath up there and could create in their sleep night and day for the rest of their lives. And ll over idiotic foundations of precedent like the Worgen female, as if her problems would plague humans and orcs and elves, it's like people see the world with the logic of a rock, paper, scissors game.

    In their world, all blind men automatically kill Boba Fett, no matter what. Circumstances are hard, what are circumstances anyway?

    Imagine with Pandaren fidelity models and facial expressions the sheer hilarious awesome that Blizzard could create with the detail of a player race with a 2 headed ogre spellcaster. By the gods, too awesome to imagine. The idle animations, the emotes, the interactions between heads,...

    The HotS heroes are stylized in a way to work isometric. Trust me, if they would make the heroes look thinner like for example females in wow, the silhouette would not look nice from an isometric point of view. The hips and breasts are really big, but if they did it another way it would not be visible from above.
    For Tyrande I would say that only the face looks remotely to what we may get in wow.

    Also the bonecount in the Hots models are really low, no bones for the face and the hands, they just modeled in a static pose.
    So for hots this is perfectly okay I think, fully rigged characters would be a waste of time and runtime performance.

    So no I don't want them to look them like that, it would look like rts characters from a third person perspective and that would suck.

    Actually if you look well at the current older troll models, there is a suggestion of fur. The new ones from Isle of Thunder I have not spotted the effect on.

    Why would she loathe Sargeras? she was though that Sargeras was the only worthy to be her mate, that's why she helped the Burning Legion

    Azshara is currently occupied with N'Zoth. There isn't anything in warcraft that suggests that she is still after Sagaras, which is an enemy of her current "master". But it would be a cool story twist if she betrays N'Zoth and smashes him...

    Well... Sargeras is not a direct enemy of the Old Gods, the old gods just want to destroy everything and Sargeras want to take every little piece of power of Azeroth

    Sageras is not out for power, he wants to destory every living thing.
    The Old Gods were on Azeroth before the Titans, they just love chaos.. it seems like... (not sure on that)
    Sagaras on the other hand brings order in his own way.

    Yes and no, Sargeras came to Azeroth first looking for the power of the Well of Eternity

    Naga should become a Pandaren-style playable race in the inevitable ocean+underwater x-pac following Warlords.
