    Ah, you see, the Darkiron have slightly darker skin, glowing red eyes, molten hair with different hairstyles and a different set of racials.

    I can understand the confusion.

    No. They're just reskins, you won't notice any difference when you put some armor on. But hey, now you can craft blacksmith items 1 second quicker, but who the hell uses blacksmithing anyway?
    BE THANKFUL FOR THIS MAJOR EXPANSION CONTENT YOU ASS (or the fanboys will rip your head off).

    I feel the Alliance got shafted again... Cmon Blizz Give us Alliance a Decent race instead of a reskin of a current race ffs the Horde are getting STANDING Orcs and Upright Trolls they alrdy have 2 up on us with having Nightbourne looking decent over Void Elves.

    No Zandalari pally is comparable to that i guess.
    You mean how Horde is behind two races on both priest (Orc, HM Tauren) and Mage (2x Tauren)?
    I know Alliance is 1 behind on warlock but I personally think Zandalari shouldn't be locks. Lore wise the only demon related people they have were more akin to DH's and we know they won't get those.

    Wait, did they remove Forsaken and Blood Elves or am I missing your point?
    [EDIT] Never mind, I got it - you only meant which classes aren't available to new sub-races.

    Yes. I was on the fence about making such a character, but now, I will probably have a badass female with a red mohawk, probably a fury warrior. And I would love to name her Vasquez if it's available on my server. :3

    "A night elf laughed at me for living inside a volcano. Well, at least I don't have to worry about my mountain burning down, now do I?" Zing!

    It's official, Dark Iron dwarves are now the best race in the game beyond any shadow of a doubt. Also, this is the first time I've laughed out loud at any of the racial /sillies ever, this is solid gold!

    WTF BLIZZARD IS WRONG WITH YOU ?
    story and lorewise DI paladins make more sense than VE DKs, as they have existed ingame since vanilla

    - - - Updated - - -

    My toughts on the racials

    Dungeon Delver - movement speed increase in dungeons (and raids)
    Fireblood - chance to deal fire dmg on attack/spellcast (swapable with forged in fire)
    Forged in Flames - increased fire resistance
    Mass Production - reduced crafting time
    Mole Machine - 2nd hearthstone or TP to closest flight master (2nd one would be stronger in my opinion)

    Alliance players get a Dark Iron DEATH KNIGHT, if they can be Pallys, they should be allowed to be DKs. And start at 60.
