New Races!

MMO Champion did some data mining and found two new sets of masks in the PTR: Goblins and Worgens. They predict these will be the two new races for the expansion: Goblins for the Horde and Worgens for the Alliance.

This makes sense. After all, the Alliance already have Gnomes to satisfy their engineering needs, and the Goblins have been satisfying the Horde transportation needs throughout play. You have to know a bit about Warcraft trivia to understand the Worgen. To the south of Silverpine Forest, just beyond Shadowfang Keep and the cursed, worgen inhabited Pyrewood is the land of Gilneas. The great Greyman Wall seperates this human territory from the rest of the Scourge infested north, and it was rumored pre-BC that the Worgen would be the next playable race.

Personally, I hope that the Goblin and Worgen have no pre-determined alliances. Rather, have them decide at some point in leveling what faction they want. I really like the idea of playing Worgen. Common! Who doesn't want to be a werewolf?

You were who I thought about first when it comes to playable Goblins. Realistically, I think they will be choose-your-own faction.

Can you imagine a worgen hunter?!? Maybe even with a nice wolf pet! I would definately start a worgen.

The guy who writes The Greedy Goblin blog would have to make a goblin. Gevlon the Goblin would live.

I still think it's a little early to be calling this, but it's hard to disagree with MMO Champ given their track record. And Worgen/Goblins as new races makes more sense than the old Worgen/Pandaren idea that has been floating around for awhile now. If the pandas were ever playable, there would be a complete landslide of rerolls that would probably throw out faction balance forever.

I think they should be their own faction.

Of course I stated as such long long ago...
