and why not? Money is money. Just getting the $15/mo is nothing compared to the cash they can haul in letting people who pay for the game actually... do what they want. If someone really wanted to change their Warrior into a Shaman one month, then pay $20 to change back to a Warrior, why not? They're still going to have to gear, they're going to have to learn how to play, etc. This just gives Blizzard more cash, and players more desire to... Keep Paying Blizzard Money, which despite most people's hopes and dreams of killing e-dragons, is Blizzard's #1 priority.Keep the customer happy. Customers are happy whenever they can do more. Race and Class changes, or at least paying to start a L55+ are only a matter of time and a Vice President of the company demanding they increase the income even more... which at 12 million subs is like bleeding a stone. Gotta find new revenue streams!

Class changes won't happen.People will jump ship when a nurf bat hits, and slide over to the current OP flavor of the week. Ratings say "Druids are #1 in Arena"? Change your Shaman to a Druid. What happens to Warlock or Paladin mounts when you change? Can a Hunter ride around on a Charger? (And before you say that mounts are spells and would be lost like any other spell, my Charger was a quest reward, just like Mage robes or Warrior Weapons.)Race changes are a bit more practical, but won't happen, again for many the same reasons. What happens if you roll a BE Paladin, or a Draenei Shaman? Racials? (See Flavor of the Month above). When a character hits 80, swap to human for the rep racial?
