    But why give Highmountain Priest, but not give Lightforged Hunter?

    Also "getting rid of race/class restrictions" after announcing a 1 class race?
    Lightforged can already be hunters, they can't be monks though, for some reason.

    Cool, I guess. But it kind of makes the whole Dracthyr visage form restrictions seem even more stupid in retrospect.

    Why add the most restrictive race/class in the game if you goal is to do the opposite.

    All of them? Sigh...

    I understand why they're doing it and such but I think some race restrictions mattered.

    Not including things like BE could be warriors back in the day, thats stupid IMO.

    Huh, maybe they actually will give dracthyr other classes down the line.

    Maybe once they're more "integrated" with the rest of the world later on in 10.0 or even 11.0? Or Dracthyr will forever be the exception to that rule.

    Good fucking riddance "Draenei can't be rogues" bullshit arguments.

    There basically was no argument since they could use camouflage as a hunter lol

    If they do this without giving any lore reasons, they are shitting on the lore.

    There doesn't need to be that many lore reasons, it's not like these classes are something like druid or DH, it makes sense most races could become a rogue or mage with proper training, or a priest based on being converted by other races in their faction.

    you don't really need a lot of lore reasons for Mages, Priests and Rogues

    Oh I know, but some people are very adamant. I've argued in favor of Draenei rogues for ages.

    There's Draenei rogues in the Rangari, followers too. There's Mishka in SI:7 who is seen stealthing, dual wielding daggers. Camo as you said. And so on.

    Came back and heard Draenei Rogue is happening, ez clap

    That's more than enough for me to play the expansion, I have always wanted a Draenei Lock or Rogue.

    But what about Warlocks?

    I think the decision to limit the Drac'thyr only to Evokers is because they start at level 58 due to being a heroic class. Evokers are essentially their introduction to the world, and the world's introduction to these supersoldiers after thousands of years of hibernation and no one knowing of them even existing aside from Deathwing. It makes no sense for them to be a level 1 Mage going from meeting Alexstrasza on the Dragon Isles to questing in Elwynn (or Chromie time, or whatever). Maybe there can be a questline that involves a new generation of Drac'thyr as an Allied Race of sorts taking on the world as something other than Evoker.

    Holinka explained in the interview that they wouldn't make Paladin and Warlock become a thing for everyone without adding explanations for it in game, something in those lines

    Zero shitting going on. This is not the case of Draenei going Locks, which would be kinda big thing. But pretty much every race has some kind of a scout/reckon units that can now pose as a rogue.
    Sometimes, the light of the moon is a key to other spaces. I've found a place where, for a night or two, the streets curve in unfamiliar ways. If I walk here, I might find insight, or I might be touched by madness.

    Yes, but they still need to give a reasoning, otherwise it feels very unspecial.

    Tauren Mages, Rogues. People need to know why. And there's already an explanation in the lore.

    This was actually followed up on in Legion during the prestige ceremony for the PvP arifact appearance. Gorfax Angerfang now represents them.
