I've been pulling for Ogres and Arakkoa since May of last year. I was REALLY disappointed with the WoD announcement that we will be revisiting this cultures, but they will remain unplayable. However, I found it curious the ogres received ANOTHER model update, and I'm going to assume we will see an updated model for the Arakkoa.
I'm calling it right now we will see an unprecedented mid-expansion release of new playable races. In Cataclysm, we saw the Worgen and Goblin cultures if you started from level 1, but immediately parted ways after you left the starting area. There were a lot of hubs around the updated vanilla continents that included new goblin and worgen cities and featured their specific prop kits and architecture, but for players who continued on from their max level characters, all Goblins and Worgen were to them were new race change options.
Through the max level leveling process I'm guessed we'll be thoroughly introduced to both of these cultures. We'll probably even help them kill some boars. With Blizzard seeming to want to push hard on micro transactions, I think there's a possibility we will see these races become playable in a non-raid tier like 6.1 or 6.3 for $25 a pop.
Am I high or what?
