    Make a "dragonkin", a humanoid dragon, who is close enough, D&D ahve dragonborns and draconicans, wow already had drakonids, they on purpose put on the trashcan what we had to make this thing.

    There is nor eason or sense to want be a full on dragon in a mmo, its bananas, is like saying you want to be an old god next void expansion, and you have a void elf turning into a humanoid yog'ssaron.

    And just by saying that i realize its a possibility now, shit

    No, there is a half-mortal half-dragon race.

    It's a compromise.

    But it's still not a dragon. A true full dragon.

    I mean I don’t think we are saying a ‘true full dragon’. If I give you a sandwich with half ham and half turd, are you going to call it a half ham half turd sand which? Or will you probably call it the first thing that probably makes it stand out, like I would just call that thing a turd sand which you know?

    Cool I am. In an ideal world I'd of perfered a playable dragon.

    Also what the fuck is that anology? If someone asked what was in the sandwich I'd list all the ingredients. But yes if someone shat on my sandwich I'd likely focus on that more then another ingredients... So what

    According to Blizzard devs, that’s exactly what you’re getting.

    I used that analogy because this conversation is so dumb about whether or not they are dragons or not I'm giving you a stupid example that lines up how silly it is.

    They are dragons, just chill.

    You mean this one;

    https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/ne...ight-deep-dive

    Where they said this;

    Dragonflight introduces a new race and class in one known as the dracthyr Evoker, allowing players to play as a dragon (one that can still fit in a raid without crushing your allies.)

    You do know there is different sizes of drakonid....right? just like the drake mount is a different size of an adult wyrm

    Yeah also the one where they say Dracthyr are a compromise between playing as dragons. And discuss that they're literally half-mortal half-dragons. Yes that's the one. Seems you grapsed into one line and ignored....the vast majority of the deep dive.

    You argument falls apart if you've ever seen a Warcraft dragon :L

    So you agree we could play as a very young drake who could be even little bit smaller than average drake mount.

    And yet they’re still calling it a dragon.

    If Blizzard is plainly stating that it is a dragon despite its hybridity, you saying it isn’t a dragon is pure headcanon.
