    Even if this statement was true, I don't get the logic. Should we never see anything new in wow? I get that people have their preferred non playable race that was introduced between Vanilla and WoD, but I don't think that's any reason to oppose new lore.

    I want a dragon race to play, especially if it ties into the expansion the way pandarens were in mists of pandaria. I want dragon-humanoid where the males can be either bulky or slender; like maloriak or a brutish/guard/bulky type. I want varying beaks/snouts options, wing options, tail options and depending on the dragonflight (new or old) we can pick the colors. I am excited for dragons!

    I think it's possible, through Wrathion. He could pick up his uncle Nefarian's Dragonman project, perfect it, and committ his new people to the Alliance.

    I think a Dragonkin/Drakonid type race would be interesting, but I'd prefer something that didn't look like Maloriak - I prefer the original Drakonid, just touched up and scaled down to normal PC heights.

    I would absolutely love a dragon allied race. Dragonmen or Drakonid are fine by me. They could be introduced into the Alliance through Wrathion. We know he's close friends with Anduin and that he was in the Alliance Embassy during the BfA BlizzCon demo. Now, we've heard about the Dragon Isles. It seems like Blizzard is building up to something.
    You can find me on the roleplaying realms of Wyrmrest Accord (Horde) and Moon Guard (Alliance). I'm also a huge expanded customization, allied race, and cosmetics enthusiast.

    Drakonids, Sethrak, Sauroks are just 3 of them. Of those three, Sauroks are the only "Incredibly unlikely", with Sethrak and Drakonids being "If Blizz can fit them in"

    With everything we've seen since "Merely a setback" and "There must always be a Lich King", you doubt their ability to BS an explanation?

    And by worse you obviously mean better. Sounds like the perfect Warcraft race, actually.

    They would have to be Alliance only; the black dragonflight is pretty much extinct, the bronze dragonflight i only see them joining the timekeepers faction, the blue dragonflight would follow kalecgos into the kirin tor and the green and Red dragonflight that are the protectors of life would go to the Alliance considering in the other side you have silvanas who has her own death campaign

    I think it'd be a great opportunity to introduce a non-bidpedal race like the Dragonspawn, though I'm doubtful it will ever come to pass.

    I said this on the FFXIV subforum when the new Hrothgar race was announced, but I think "beast races" in MMORPGs hardly ever look like anything other than men in rubber suits. Contrast that with say, the Charr from GW2, who very much looked like beasts: they were hunched over, had long manes of hair, and even ran on all fours (RIP plainsrunning Tauren). They looked and felt like "beasts" I wanted to play as. When I play a fantasy MMO where I can create my own character, I usually want to play as something other than myself, and beast races are are conceptually as far away from a human as you can get, but in practice they are usually just reskinned humans.

    WoW has several quadrupedal races. It's a shame that Blizzard has never attempted to implement them. No, just because Naga can't wear shoes doesn't mean they can't be a playable race; just don't make shoes visible; they'd just be another non-visible gear slot like jewelry and trinkets. Not everything has to align one-to-one per race. There are plenty of other ways to create visual progression for a non-bipedal race, such as different wings, headpieces, scarab plates, horns, and so forth.


    Dragonspawn



    Nerubians



    Or how about Tol'vir?

    I want them! Playable dragonkind race using the worgen rig like the dragonman concept from cata. Alliance, brought by Wrathion, who finds the Dragon Isles (race hub) and becomes leader of local dragonman-like race.

    No more playable races please. The game is far too bloated. Focus on quality quests/storylines for the races we already have.

    It's literally the only well received feature in BfA. And one of the major ones this expansion. Can we get this expansion feature for at least the duration of the expansion?

    Ain't going to happen (both because Blizzard doesn't do quality stories and because they don't give a shit about majority of the races as it is) so they could just as well go all out on playable races.

    Hopefully something like black dragonmen would be add a level of moral ambiguity to the Alliance. One thing that I liked about Deathwing (Pre-Cataclysm) was how politically adept he was, playing Orgrim's Horde while also managing to get Terenas to arrange a marriage between him and Calia. He was a character that could be Machiavellian, something the Alliance needs.

    I would hope that something like a Wrathion-led race would have some of those qualities, albeit with a less chaotic goal.

    my second dream after ogres is actually a drakonid/dragonborn race like DnD

    Wish they could do a Worgen route, and make the orcs from the dragonmaw clan became weredragons, cause the outland ones essentially do

    I wouldn't mind seeing dragonman make their way as an allied race, especially since sethrak seem extremely unlikely now. Maybe tied into Wrathion with a Middle Eastern or East African aesthetic.
    Huh, interesting!

    Not gonna lie; they'd probably be pretty good candidates for an Allied Race, given they're essentially a heavily-involved reskin (and they're overhauling the Worgen model, anyways).

    For their culture, I wouldn't be opposed to them just playing to the old "Wizard" tropes. You know, obsessed with knowledge, experiments, kind of a general "mad scientist" vibe. Maybe some among them would be a bit more ritualistic, while others are just generally aloof?
