    New Animal Race? (NPC)

    I'm surprised I haven't seen other comments on it yet. It looks like there's some kind of cat/fox race added (as part of the pirate's crew). Any mention of this somewhere that I missed?

    Theyre humanoid fennec foxes called the vulpera. They apparently inhabit Vol'dun region of Zandalar along with the hostile serpent people called Sethrak.

    Can't wait for the furries to start demanding the Vulpera as a playable race.

    Being that race as a rogue or druid would be kinda cool actually. Don't know how their animations and stuff look though.

    I quit WoW permanently the second they make those things playable. That's the kind of stuff i've come to expect of final fantasy, and all those other asian mmos, not world of warcraft.

    Based on what was said at the WoW panel they have set up the system to easily add more (sub)races in the future. And I guess exactly this will happen. I'm pretty sure fur and scale lovers will be pleased.

    And for those that wanted to play Naga -- well - I never would play a creature that has no legs. But I don't mind if they add them in the future. (Maybe once Azshara is beaten.)

    This wasn't the only new animal race, there was one based on a cobra as well.

    Last time I checked Worgens who are wolves. Foxes are also part of the same animal kingdom... They are both canines or specfically the Canidae family. To which foxes descended from wolves as much as domesticated dogs.

    Aside real life, the lore goes that Goldrinn as an ancient god existed long before druidism came along to eventually lead to Worgens and well you have Worgs too to explain the bipedal and animal strains.

    Crying about a particular race when it's pretty much easily explained in lore, on real genealogy... with already in-game as as wildlife and pets even mounts too seems odd. And there's been tons of races that also are mounts too... Fulborgs/Pandaren and bears, Tol'vir and nightsabers, Vulpera and foxes, Worgens and worgs, Fal'dorei and spiders, Arakkoa and birds, Quillboars and boars... The list goes on.

    I could understand something like Void Elves. But foxes. Not really.

    i can feel the engines of e621 grinding into overdrive.

    they're really cute. hope they're kinda swindlers. not in the scummy goblin way, the more... savvy, quickminded way that it's usually portrayed in middle eastern tales.

    To be honest, Mogu were reskinned Draenei. The Botani and Jinyu are reskinned Night Elves. Tol'vir and Magmataurs are reskinned mobs from their centenarian mobs in Silithus raids. Arakkoa are reskinned Harpies or vice versa. Elementals all share the same animations based on sizes whether earth, fire, water and so on. Orges and Boomkin are the same. Fal'dorei and Nerubians are the same. Taunka and Yangol and Tauren are the same.



    Vile Fiends use Hozen animations.

    Not every NPC race will have a new animation rig. Some are more obvious then others.

    They were female Draenei's. Watch both races stand still and see they both look side to side. Worgens sniff... The consorts don't do that.
