    I agree with you. Druids, since we have cool unique forms, have always been balanced across the faction. They even avoided giving trolls druids until cataclysm when worgen were introduced.

    I highly doubt Dark Iron dwarves will be able to be druids, so unless they open it to some of the currently existing races, it'll be 2-4 for the time being. I just hope that the new round of allied races will bring it even.

    All we need now is a Devilsaur feral form, a Direhorn guardian form, a pterrorwing flight form, and idk maybe some kind of serpentine balance form

    Dark Iron get to be DKs it looks like, so each faction in this round gets something unique.

    Plus, they said they'd be adding new allied races in the future. I KNOW asking people in this day and age for patience is fucking madness, but seriously, show some patience.

    Dark Iron are nothing more than recolored dwarves, with all the base ugliness and awful armor clipping that goes with that race. Big whoop, instead of red dark iron dwarf eyes, they'll have blue eyes.

    All of this is assuming no Zandalari Paladins and also isn't considering possible future plans for Alliance allied races.

    And that has WHAT to do with available classes?

    A total difference in terms of what you're getting. There is no druid with raptor form. There are already dwarven death knights.

    People really need to stop assuming someone is out to hurt them specifically. They added new races, they decided what classes make sense to allow for them - the way it should be. Its not about being fair, its about having logical choices. And none of the new alliance races are logical choices for Druids. I much prefer it this way then some token Druid race just to shut up whiners. Get over it.

    Personally I would prefer if Druids would be Night Elf only on Alliance, the Worgen thing is already rather wrong.
    It's not wrong. Since lorewise worgen originated from a forbidden druid form. They also came from the Emerald Dream.

    Come WoW they made the switch to Taurens from Trolls adding in lore that Taurens were traditionally druids but they lost their affinity towards it and are trying to regain it. To be fair I don't understand how they "forgot" their druidism nature and recently rediscovered it, but taking into consideration Tauren were/are a nomad race, highly connected with mother earth and spirits, a mixed culture of Druids and Shamans does make sense.

    Worgen made no sense in that while they did create the Druids of the Scythe lore with Night Elves turning into wolves, a form just like any other form, they somehow became werewolves. Only reason given was that Arugal experimented and made a human wolf hybrid like curse. Taken all the above into consideration Worgen, should infact be a Druid form not another race entirely and the current race "Worgen" is actually just a Druid human.

    Going one step further on race / class options, Night Elves, again, may have had the first "paladins" in the game. Priests of Moon are not only great priests (as the name would suggest) they are also one of the best fighters the Night Elves have. They may not be melee oriented by they are both healers and fighters at the same time.
    Worgen curse can be passed to non-druids.

    Well, technically Moonkin has always (unfortunately) just been fat owl nomatter what race you were.

    Buuuuuut since we're already dreaming big anyway, sign me up for a Coutl caster form:

    I know i'm very likely to be disappointed but i'm crossing everything that Zandalari get proper Dino forms. Dinomancy would be so bloody amazing.

    "Yeah just be patient for 9.0!"

    You do know by them saying they're adding more in the future, that likely means "future expansions" not "in the future of this expansion", right? They're setting up a system they can add to instead of having to add a new base race.

    The problem is I'd love to try one of the new races and that means I have to abandon my current class because I cannot try ANY of them as my current class.

    Oh yeah, I'm a Druid and stuff.

    I completely understand the alliance allied races don’t make sense for Druid. It’s just horde has such good options for Druid in my opinion that I’m really jealous. I can’t leave my guild on alliance but i would die to be a Zandalari Druid in BFA but it’s just not a possibility when I’ve got such deep roots in my guild.

    If we get news on some new allied races for alliance that can be Druid I’ll be excited. I’m currently a night elf but even if the worgen update is really good that would make me happy.

    This is where I am on it all too. It's just frustrating

    see i am on the complete opposite side of that problem, my hope was for horde to get nightborne or blood elf as druid, just so i don't have to be some barefeet whatever. tauren have nice forms, but the caster form is mehr for the look i want, troll forms are just ugly and zandalari... we'll see

    i might actually reroll on alliance for the option to play a good looking druid and maybe some void-elf-priest if they fix shadow

    A Coutl Boomkin form would be perfect theme-wise, and just generally awesome!

    Yeah, maybe on 9.0 or 10.0

    But that doesn't mean they'd have druids on them.

    Adding Druid to new races takes way more work than any other class: they need to make 3 unique animal forms for yech race, and add in a fitting recolour for the rest.

    Highmountain Tauren and Zandalari were easy to do: they can just recycle Tauren and Troll form models for them, with Zandalari havign some generic Raptor model on Travel Form.

My main character is a Tauren druid, and if the Horde allied races weren't able to be druid I'd be fine because I like my character.

    In my opinion you should complain about the very weird choice they made for alliance races, (none of them make much sense to me at first glance), than complaining about them not being druids.
    Zandalari Paladin could work, seeing we already had trash mobs in ToT throwign away Paladin abilities.

    This is...the petty-est thread I've read in a minute. Lack of race + class of your choice combo? I mean come on...this is like the definition of #1stworldproblems

    Just because it's petty to you doesn't mean it's not a problem.

    It's (allied races) a new feature that I'd like to take part in as my main, not an alt, which means I am FORCED to class change to do so as my main.
