    Those skinless void elves look great, though.

    I think we'll only get 4 this expansion. They may branch out later if it suits them. Remember that they delayed draenei/belf model updates because of time constraints, and warlock etc. new animations because they're not ready yet. Realism > people getting mad seems to be their approach for these things.

    I'm personally expecting a dragonkin race (Think Halloween Symmetra) or Naga.
    No if we get subraces we won't get new race which sadens me.
    I love worgen, the lore, the personality but i dislike looking so bad because my model is still old and terrible.
    Now even if we get subraces, some races won't get subraces (think : worgen and pandaren)
    I wanted naga so bad and this next expansion seemed like THE perfect moment for them to become playable but now that these subraces are confirmed we probably won't get a new race

    If they really play up the fact that Blood Elves have graduated from being fel oriented to being LIGHT oriented, the inclusion of "void elves" would make perfect sense.

    They aren't confirmed, though. Also, the fact that they mentioned goblin and worgen models recently suggests their models won't be ugly for long

    But the thing is, while Void Elf flags it's default class as Mage, the default class for Night Elf is Druid.

    This implies it is by design and not JUST a shortcut.
    There can be another implication here too. Subraces might be not able to be all classes they stem from. ie Void elves can't be druids probably. Would make sense since high elves can't be.

    Even Genns updated worgen form from the cinematic was kinda meh.

    To think there would come a day where the Horde has Night Elves. What has this world come to?

    I don't want to be a negative nancy but this rly makes my hype leave.
    Actually, based on the choices, I would imagine you'd see additional customization for most races. So in addition to this you would get the 'minor' subraces (Dark Irons, Eredar, Mag'har, Sand trolls, etc)

    Not to mention the high botanist tel'arn. A blend of nature and arcane. Reminds me of the bottanist in the botanica. Druid bloodelf/nightborne would be cool.

    i hope this is the case, that way they could just have broken as a draenei subrace, because i honestly don't feel like it deserves to be its own race.

    they wouldn't be able to be priests or paladins.

    Four new subraces, three of them being popular races (elves and draenei) make perfect sense. Coupled with updated goblins and worgen that would be enough for Blizzard to call it a day.

    I wouldn't even call that an upgraded form, at most it was comparable to Garrosh' upgraded model in cata.

    That wasn't my point at all... >_>

    Many were saying that MAYBE the data was just copy pasted from the other races and that's why it wasn't just 0s across the board.

    What I showed there is that they are DIFFERENT from their parent race. This makes it less likely they were done as a shortcut and shows it was at least partially intentional on Blizz's part.

    It was officially announced as an update i believe. To me he just looked abit fluffier.. I DID like the eyes alot, the glowy effect made me think "THAT'S improvement"

    Pretty sure there are Broken shadow priests around.

    You mean the model that served as the baseline for the new Orc models?

    I'd rather have Khadgar as a subrace than more elves too!
