I kinda love the idea of sub-races but the balancing would be hard since what kind of sub race would worgen have? Heck If they could pull this off id pay for it hehe
I say this stuff because when I think of "Northrend Worgen" I remember the lumberjack looking guys in Grizzly hills. They were human, but like, twice the size of playable humans; big Mofos, you know? Gotta have a were-beast form that matches it, I think.

@MickeyFrogeater Nope! They are two seperate schools of magic. "
now some people can quit trying to tell me fel magic is just "stronger" arcane
For Worgen, I was thinking Northrend Worgen, like more arctic wolf style. Another idea for a Worgen subrace would be Blackhowl, the Worgen pack that was tricked into drinking the black dragonblood. The corruption could have turned them half man, half wolf, half black dragon. There is some potential for coolness there.
It should be no more balanced than anything is regarding hairstyles or beards or jewelry. Some races have one with strong Warcraft identity in the lore, some are obscure and would just seem not only like token additions, it would add questionable resource budgets.
If I gave Worgen an ethnic/sub race, I'd have you be able to start in Moonglade as a Night Elf woken from the Dream, told of the Curse of the Worgen story events, and freed from the bloodlust of Goldrinn and free from the rule of Alpha.
You then port to Teldrassil after a few custom quest text boxes and some neat chances for NPC interactions bring more to the lore.
