    Yes. This sounds the most plausible. There are minimal changes to existing races they would have to make to have these available.

    Lightforged Undead and Undead Night Elves would make Void Elves look amazing and novel.

    Also, Calia is implied to belong to neither faction.

    No one's ever noticed that before....

    Ankoan, Hozen and Jinyu are never happening.
    Well
    Not never but sure as hell not right now. You know what all of them have in common? Models with their armours baked in. I had originally expected Ankoan would be an Allied race when we saw their concept art because it was such an obvious choice but they aren't about to massively remodel the race now — not for a long while.
    I feel like the world but especially these forums needs to see a return of Good Citizenship Classes. That I keep needing to explain to people that private organizations saying "You can't say that here" is them exercising their Freedom of Expression not them impeding yours AND that the enshrined legal right to say something abhorrent does not protect you from the consequences of saying such things, is an absolute indictment of whatever education system these people have gone through.

    Hozen and jinyu are pretty old now, so they'd need new models anyway, same if they want to add any undead variants(like ghosts or flesh golems)

    Maybe because it would have spoiled the 8.3 patch thats why theuy didnt say anything about 8.3 either
    High Elves have been a Horde playable race since 2007. Sorry 'bout it!

    I wish I would get 1 Dollar everyime someone tries to put this down as an arguement. ^^ Blizzcon only told us about the feature as reveal, where they had to confirm some, but Kul Tirans, Mag'har, Mechagnomes and Vulpera were announced outside of Blizzcon and this were the ones coming after 8.0. Otherwise why talk about a future pair, if the current is not released and wont come for another month. And of course it could spoil the 8.3.5 AR. Best example could be the Rajani if they become an AR.

    The Blizzcon Arguement is just nonsense and I wish people would stop using it, it doesnt make any sense.

    I think Alliance should have Sethrak while the Horde gets Nathanos like Undead or Liches.

    The Alliance lacks any races that is original other than Human. I mean there's only Pandarens and Draeneis. That's it.

    Everything else is Humans, Dwarf Humans, Purple Humans, Blueberry Elf Humans, and etc. I mean heck where's the Cat People on the Alliance, Bird People, Ankoan Fish People, Sethrak, and etc?

    I know where you’re coming from, but to play devil’s advocate, they’re an NPC race, closely tied to the Horde... not an actual Horde playable race. Void Elves prior to the unlock scenario we’re a Horde playable race and a way was found to make them Alliance.

    Shoe-horning Sethrak Alliance should be a far easier task, despite their relationship with the Horde.

    My point, narratively it’s not impossible, it’s more a question of how big a pill you wanna swallow.

    Well, i know what you mean but i think its also part of the "faction identity" i know faciton identity is a bit lost with the ar and them trying to "balance" by addind big race for both faciton adding "horde" or "alliance" race for both faction etc but i would like if they stay somewhat logicial with the lore and the quests i mean the void elfs arent that much of an horde race in the way that you had high elves in alliance and blood elf in the horde and the void elf are high elves who didnt followed the blood elves methods of draining other living beings and tried to use the void as a mean to not starve

    But for sethrak well, in the childrens week as horde you have to bring your litle zandalari kid to the sethrak and learn about how both empire were close etc the way they are taking is really to go with an unity between zandalari and the sethrak

    Dont forget the alliance killed thek ing of the zandalari while the zandalari did nothing to the setrhak they even helped them and aso they have both the loas as gods etc and logically if the alliance illed the zandalari leader then they enter in war with the sethrak in an alliance game

    But for "non humans" race i would gladly see the fish ppl being possible reall and i would love this because it would be a good change and different thing for the alliance to have and i would definittly play as one =)

    You make a Good Point about Fish People like Jinyu or Ankoan being a Race for the Alliance. That said I kind of would like to see Arakkoa as a Race for the Alliance. I mean Arakkoa not really welcomed into the Horde due to the past history of the Horde killing them in the past plus also the fact Bird People in General isn't really playable.

    As the Mogu as well for the Alliance but like Sethrak would be mixed since Horde does have Zandalari in their ranks given the Two's History it would atleast make sense for the Mogu to join up with the Horde because of that set history the Zandalari and Mogu have.

    I would really like the Arakkoa to join one of the 2 factions, in most interested in the corrupted ones, and IMHO regardless if they go with the WoD one or the BC ones, i think both work great for the Alliance, the BC Arakkoa that are friendly started to worship the Light, and the Arakkoa that are in WoD have the experience of being hunted down by the Orcs (though it only applies to Corrupted Arakkoas), though the Arakkoas of WOD present may be like the Maghar Orc and not like much the Draneai for their new ways of conversion (assuming they were not all already converted)

    Fucking featheries, sick lot, if you ask me, but no doubt SJW Blizzard will cater to you.

    Sarcasm aside, the Arrakoa from WoD are pretty cool.

  18. #318
    I highly doubt sethrak is going to happen as an ar imo, arrakoa too but we can never know

    Like i said for me it will most likely be Ankoan for alliance and mogu for horde as the last bfa ar

    I also doubt the giblin due to the fact blizz didnt updated their skin since they still use the old goblins models which they would most likely have upgraded if they really planned them as an ar anyhow

    I mean, if blood elfs or Nightborn are in the horde then there is no reason for the alliance not to have an evil/ugly/nonhumanoid race. At this point lore doesn't matter anymore anyway

    Did you play the Alliance storyline? We save their leader's life and safeguard one of the "keys".

    Sure, the Horde questline with them is more involved, because it's their zone. But there's more than enough there to justify them joining Alliance with a little more push in future plots or their recruitment questline. And Hearthstone has linked them to Uldum, so there could be enough justification there for the Uldum Accord rep to get them in.

    After void elves, a race that literally didn't exist until the recruitment scenario took a Horde race and turned them blue (and linked them to a completely unrelated reputation), the sky is kind of the limit on what can be stretched for allied race purposes.

    Sethrak would be a fantastic race for the Alliance, would break up the "humans and friends" rut that the faction is in, and would somewhat make up for getting two wildly unpopular races in a row.
