    They said that Dark Iron DK is still being considered tho.

    I can't wait to see the day Void Elves die and go extinct. ... they should listen and give something better than Emo Elves.

    My hope and dream is a Nightborne DH. They said that maybe other races could become DHs down the line, and with what happens at the end of Antorus, I could see new DHs being trained by other order members. I'm pretty sure they won't do it, but one can dream...

    The excuse for the starting experience for DK's and demon hunters is just ridiculous. All it needs is a quest you automatically get when creating the character explaining how you are part of a new batch of recruits raised by the Ebon Blade or trained by the Illidari.
    In a leveling experience where you magically get sent back and forth in time to where Thrall, Garrosh, Vol'jin and Sylvanas are Warchief the DK and DH starting areas really don't matter anymore.

    Lore matters, and as far as I'm concerned, we don't need other DH races.
    For the Alliance, and for Azeroth!

    There is literally no new batches of Death Knights or Illidari. Arthas is dead and not raisign anymore DKs and Illidan is havign his fun with Sargeras.

    Yes, but strictly speaking you don't need Illidan to become a DH. You only need commitment from the individual, proper instructions, and demons.

    And right now it wouldn't make sense considering the starting zone of Demon Hunters, it would be absurd as fuck.

    Excepting the Dark Iron, of course.

    I'm pretty sure we can raise new death knights now. Besides, Zandalari could easily fit into the lore of DKs, as they aren't really isolated.

    Nope. They go through the same starting zone as everybody else.

    Except that's basically Lich King 2.0 raising the dead in the 1000s.

    Regardless, I'm sure they could easily justify zandalari death knights that were raised in the age of Lich King 1.0.

    Dark Irons aren’t just re-colored. They have flaming beards for instance. They are a lot more detailed than plain old Dwarves. Which makes it reasonable to assume that if we get brown Orcs, which I think we will, they will have unique markings on them. Something other than a paint job.

    Yeah, probably tattoos and body piercings. Maybe some unique hairstyles.

    http://blizzplanet.com/wp-content/up...enadier_01.jpg This should be what an Orc allied race looks like.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I’m curious: why have we not seen upright playable Orcs on the ptr? Maybe just because they haven’t announced it yet and they don’t want it to trickle out without hyping it?

    Doesn’t seem like much sense to hold them back if they are ready. They aren’t an xpac feature and we have so much allied race stuff already in.

    We only know about it because they announced it.

    The upright orc shit was something they just announced on a whim, it was clearly not planned for them to announce it but then Ion said fck it and went and did it because someone asked.

    I just hope they can release 7.3.5 by January and have the allied races launch a month into that patch(as they're obviously gonna release somewhere in 7.3.5's cycle, then we'll have to wait until the pre-patch for new content.

    What I meant was:

    1. We know upright Orcs are coming.

    2. The first 4 Allied Races have nearly every feature on the PTR including models. And a lot of anecdotal evidence says they are coming during some point in 7.3.5 with Pre purchase

    Using those 2 pieces of information, to me it would make sense that playable upright Orcs would be added in 7.3.5. If they aren’t going to hold allied races back, why would they hold back upright Orcs which aren’t even a BFA-exclusive feature?

    Yet, you cannot make an upright Orc on the PTR. Why?

    What I meant by announcement is: could they possibly not be on PTR so Blizz can say “surprise! Upright Orcs are coming in 7.3.5” and it not being discovered in PTR.
