    Can you buy me a ticket to Paris in that case? ;D

    Also, very sorry I doubted you, I shall not make that mistake again mister!

    Well actually I wouldn't mind Horde getting a small and Alliance a badass race finally.

    Amg, Boub making a loud title!

    This sounds plausible, considering the recent Kalgan's interview and what he said about new races. Goblins have been there since Warcraft 2, and worgen have been in the game since vanilla. Well established races, well known, liked by players. Heck, there's been whining about wishing to have worgen as playable race.

    This also means that if we suddenly see pandaren NPCs in the game at some point, we can be pretty sure they will be playable an expansion after :P

    Before someone else writes that the worgen are evil Im just gonna say this.

    The worgen are not evil, they are just mad cuz Viktor killed Sonja.

    I think Boubouille's confidence is reasonable. There's no reason a female Worgen mask would show up if they weren't going to become a big part of the game somehow, unless it's an intentional red herring from Blizzard.

    These must be the two races. Updated textures and both appearing at once. Can't wait to be seeing Goblins roaming around Orgrimmar and fighting Werewolves ;D

    Any chance we can get some info on the changes to the Emerald Dream files? Or are they too little to mention?

    Worgen are among the few humanoids that can be skinned.

    I called worgen as alliance! Woot!
    I'm afraid we have a slight apocalypse on our hands

    Re: Goblins and Worgens are the new races of the Expansion

    It's nice to see someone agree with my initial thought this morning when I saw the masks being mined and posted.

    It's most likely that both will be neutral. There is no reason for Goblins to side with only one faction.

    As for the Worgen this might kill the reference to that list of future expansions as I agree with many who have posted that Gilneas with its proximity to SFK is the obvious choice of starting zone.

    As for Worgen origins they are not definitively Evil or good, they are simply vicious by nature. It was said at some point that on their homeworld they are in a state of permanent war with "the emerald flame" and many have speculated that this is just another reference to the burning legion.

    I kind of expected worgen as a new race after being transformed during the Shade of Arugal questline in Grizzly hills. I honestly couldnt see Bliz working that hard on a model with animations for so many attacks under player control without it being for a longer term purpose.

    Good news imo lets just hope they are neutral so both factions are equally satisfied.

    This.

    Making assumptions via random in game items isn't very smart. If you drink enough Pygmy Oil, you turn into a Sand Gnome... NEW RACE!!! Let's be smart about this people.

    A bold promise there Boub. I'll hold you onto it

    They're probably just making fun of all the speculations of just goblins and worgens being new races in an upcoming expansion.

    Well it is kind of strange that if only this, they would add a female model. Female models are extraordinarily rare in this game for a non-player race. Things like broken they only half finished the female model and worgen have gotten by all this time with just being a male model (although would you really check?) I think if they were just going to be fighting the goblins they wouldn't feel a pressing need to make a female version.

    I like the female ones though, I'd love to play them on the Horde, so I'm hoping for the neutral faction that chooses a side to be true.

    not trying to be rude but people have been posting about this all day before you put it on the front page...

    Those photos from the front page have been all over the forums and other sites since at least this morning.
    Maybe I dont understand what you are saying, sorry if I'm incorrect but my understanding is they are just new masks for Halloween.
