A few days ago maybe a week ago, numerous sites (wow.com, MMO-Champion) have posted two new Halloween masks images; a Goblin and a Worgen. This began a frenzy of discussions about the mask and most believe the mask are a sure sign that the goblin and worgen are the next race in the upcoming expansion.
I like the idea but why? Why these races? A goblin is neutral and will only side with the party that can better their profits while the worgens are from another dimension that kills just to kill.
There is no reason other than Blizzard is developing a new class to go along with the race. Think about it. Do you really think you will play a priest worgen, a mage worgen or possibly a paladin worgen. I don’t think so. Heck I would go so far as any class. If Blizzard wants to introduce the worgen as a possible race then I see the worgen be it’s own race/class and be playable with both factions.
Either way, all the race talk has peaked my curiosity, I just hope Blizzard does not disappoint because all the worgen talk has set the bar high.
