I think we're gonna see a lot more angry hunters now if the worgen don't become a playable race. People are already saying that ghostwolves, slimes, hydras, and queen wasps should be removed. I don't think it'd be fair since people have had them for so long, but its not exactly fair to let some things stay and some go either, despite the humanoid argument. If nothing else, regaurdless of if you tamed one or not or your opinion it should make you a little irritated to know that blizzard has so many customers now they don't care about losing some they anger for whatever the reason may be.

Considering a Worgen is a former Human...it's a little bit more than just a vanity pet. It's more akin to slavery. Just saying...

No this has nothing to do with the possibility of worgen being a new race. This isn't spirit wolves. If you could tame humanoid mobs and blizzard suddenly took this away your argument might make sense. There are several NPC NE druids in bear form around the game, guess what? You can't tame them because Blizzard only wants you to tame "beasts".

@ theRaptor:You're making way too much sense. It's confusing.
Good. Only Beasts should be tameable by them in the first place.

Worgen ARE NOT werewolves in WoW. Believe it or not, they are interdimensional Wolf-men, much like the Draenei are interdimensional Goat-men. Arugal summons them, enslaves them, and sends them around in the service of the Lich King.All the humans you see that turn into Worgen? Yeah, they're Worgen in disguise, not the other way around.

Truth of the matter is that the hunters did tame the Worgen, but unlike ghostwolves, slimes, hydras, and queen wasps, the Worgen are a humanoid creature, and as such have the process of reasoning.Late one night, the Worgan looked at his surroundings, looked at his new 'master', and said to himself "This just isn't right." He got up and decided to leave, however, knowing the history and ruthlessness of his former master, he decided to place a Winterskorn Worg in his place. "Maybe the hunter won't notice," he thought as he tip-toed out into the dark night.The hunter awoke the next morning, only to find the switch had been made. He had been outsmarted by a Worgen, a creature he had previously thought to be no smarter than the common raptor. "You really got me," he said, almost as if he expected the Worgen to be within earshot. The hunter looked at his new Worg pet and remarked, "Well, I guess I best level you up... I've got a raid a 8."
Gnosh, you haven't done all the Worgen related quests. There are quite definitely humans who have been turned into Worgen.There are, in fact, TWO types of Worgen out there.

Oozes were human once too....how you think that skull got in there?

You're missing the point, Moonkinmaniac.hydras, queen wasps, ghostwolves, slimes, are "animals", or non-human creatures.Worgen are humanoid creatures. You CAN'T tame an humanoid creature. The taming of Worgen was never "working as intended", it was just a mistake. They fixed it. Stop.

What about Silithids, they're the cousins of the Nerubians. Yup, that sentient insect race that the lich king all but wiped out and made his undead slaves. You know those quest-givers for Azjol Nerub and Old Kigdom that are seeking your aid in recovering their homeland from the undead hordes - yeah, they're the distant cousin of your little silithid pets, hunters. What makes it okay to "enslave" sentient members of this ancient civilization, but not okay to enslave worgen who were summoned from a distant plane in the same manner as demons? Yeah yeah, some might be corrupted humans, but not all are.For that matter some demons look awfully humanoid, most notably felguards and eredar. We know eredar are the same species as draenei, so we clearly can't make them our pets. Felguards are clearly humanoid as well, but because we arent buddy-buddy with theit non-corrupted counterparts, we don't have any problem with enslaving these once-mortal humanoids.
