    I think Ogre and Naga fans would have a fit if that happened.

    Right.

    Fat takout noodle shop panda on 2 legs and beer belly strong-man with back issues: perfectly fine

    Derp walrus that looks like the panda: bad, could never happen.

    Velves are still integrally tied to an existing race (two if you count Ethereals) and the only real asspull OC race in a while is Vulpera.

    It's one thing to come up with new races but a moon race called Elarian (basically two steps from Lunarian) is some looney tunes shit IMO.

    Im just saying isn't going to happen. Wow races are close to humanoid as possible, the females look "hot and appealing", this is how they do stuff, and walrus derp-looking people will not gonna make it, when they can make another elf.

    Do you know what Humanoid means? Also, female Tuskarr don't have to look like a female Blood Elf, Kul Tiran Human females and even female Tauren proved that they don't need to all look the same. Alternatively they could retcon the appearance of female Tuskarr, as I don't think we've ever seen one.

    After the pandas, mechagnomes and foxes, I've learned to keep my expectations low in regards to new races and that nothing is off the table.

    meh pandas and the fox race are fine, you will be surprise how they are popular ~~reasons. Mechagnomes was inevitable going to happen because the quest, and cyborg gnomes look much better than normal gnomes imo.

    do you? Humanoid means appearence that is close or that resemble humans, all the playable races look close or resemble humans, even the furry ones or with hooves.

    tuskar are way too fat, derp looking, walrus people, this is not appealing and "hot" to the general public who either go elf-human look or go full furry.

    Not that weird, actually! Cinematic is just playing on the wrong map for some reason, the coordinates of the runecarver's chamber and that location are the same so it's entirely accidental.

    That cutscene is a bit of a weird one in how it triggers. I believe once you hit a certain number of runecarving memories it plays, usually that would be in the runecarver room when you learn and hit that number, but PTR copies are weird in how they copy over with some data still being copied in the background or upon logging in. I guess this person was on the EK map when the copy copied that amount of memories from Live to PTR. Pretty cool!

    I can kinda imagine that it's an old cinematic being layered on top of the camera for another one. If that's meant to be the "skeleton" of it and it's an overhead shot of the zone, I wonder if it's confirmation of the Light-based Forsaken. :/ Because that would appear similar to the Allied Race/new race intro cinematics.

    And Tauren are already further away from Humanoid than Tuskarr.

    I saw on someone's Twitter feed that the shadowlands races show up in Stormwind on the PTR. Has anyone seen anything about that?

    There's a vulpin in Stormwind's embassy, Marlamin pointed that out.

    What's cool is that apparently the Forsaken have been moved out of Orgrimmar. What about the Night Elves?

    The Forsaken have been shown to wield the Light since Vanilla, CRY MORE

    They are more scared of something akin to LFD's for Forsaken. This was squashed since Calia looks like a human with white eyes IMO instead of something golden like the LFDs.

    That's pretty neat! Thanks for sharing how it works with me.
