@Ballius, pretty much every time this comes up on the suggestion forums, you get a flood of people saying "This will never happen, Blizz said it would never happen, and anyway it'd be way too hard to program in."@Skya, I don't really see anything inherantly wrong with changing race, but class for some reason bugs me terribly. If people could just change class whenever they liked without having to start from level 1 (or, 55 in the case of DK) they might as well just give you free 80's when you get one toon to 80. Sure, changing race will probably be very difficult but I'm holding out for it. Long ago I rerolled my nelf hunter into a cow hunter, but I could never delete the nelf even though she's just taking up server space. There's just too many memories on her.The way I see it is, if you reroll races/factions, you are made to digitally sign something stating you realise that anything you have that is not available to your race will be deleted. In other words, those quest rewards you're wearing? Gone. That epic land mount? Gone (though the training to ride it remains). Your factions' reputations will be wiped to zzero, but any neutral factions will remain. And if the class you are currently is not available to a given race, you cannot pick that race, period.For example. Let's take an undead warlock who is tired of looking at ripped robes and bony rotted flesh. He wants to change to a human warlock. This is acceptable since humans can pick the warlock class. He could not, for example, choose to change to a draenei or a dwarf. Any horde quest reward items will be deleted from his character. He spent weeks grinding to exalted with Silvermoon so he could have a chocobo; the chocobo and the reputation are both deleted with no equivalent given. He will have to repurchase the human's horse mount and will start out his reputation as a normal level 1 human has. If he also had exalted with Cenarion Circle, that would stay, since both Horde or Alliance can do that equally the same.
