    You can literally do what every tabletop does, make those the basics of the Dragon form, which can be the one racial you have. It's not the first time it happened either. Worgen have a human and a Worgen form but you don't see them having the ability to claw or bite or take a piss somewhere to mark their territory.

    A class wouldn't let you live out the fantasy either as balance dictates that you can't be much stronger than a rogue, a guy with two kitchen knives. Or a bare handed fat panda. To truly live yout how much of a death machine a dragon can be, you would need a Devil May Cry esque single player game.

    Which is a huge missed opportunity by the way.

    That way the tank spec can be inspired by the Black flight, a ranged DPS spec can be Blue and Bronze, and a healer spec can be Red and Green.

    Alternatively, the tank can be Bronze and then a melee spec can be Black.

    I wouldn't expect much representation from the "special" flights, except for perhaps some talent or appearance customisation choices.
    If it's a race/class locked, I'd rather it be an actual dragon. A draconid would work as a normal race.

    I think healer would actually make more sense as Red and Bronze to me finally giving us the chronomancer healer. When in red form you'd focus on AoE and throughput while in Bronze form you'd be mostly absorbs

    Worgen absolutely should get a unique class skin for fury warrior that just lets them do all the warrior does but with claws and fangs.

    They can sort of do this with some fist weapons but I agree, being able to use your claws as a Worgen should have been a thing over a decade ago.

    A skin that turn fury warriors into furry warriors

    Jokes aside, monks fight with their hands. Monk animations already exist for worgen. It is such a no brainer to let them be monks.

    Clearly. There is no other choice.

    I just don't see monks as fighting with fury of the beast. I get that the animations fit but the theme, not so much. Though maybe a spec skin for Windwalker that makes them chosen of Goldrinn.

    Two reasons for Red and Green in my eyes; the first is the thematic Life link between the two, especially with the sister bond between Alexstrasza and Ysera, and the second is the Reds' fire would help set the healer spec apart from Resto Druid.

    Oh I am absolutely on board with the Red. But I don't think the Green is about healing, they are more about nature magic. Sleep, poison, summoning vines.

    That was before Blizzard decided that everything green should be tied to restorative magic and turn everything ED related into a happy dappy fairy forest tho.

    You could also have all five flights represented in each spec, but I don't know if Blizzard would want to go down that route, because even a single dragon character would be a multi-coloured explosion.

    If Blizzard gave Anduin a new model in 9.2.5, then you threw him out of story early, 9.2.5 a lot of encrypted stuff.
