Tyler: "they wouldn't be a hero race....just unlockable and start at 65"Forgive me if I'm wrong Tyler, but it sounds as if you, like many many others, have completely the wrong end of the stick when it comes to the term "hero" class/race. Tom Chilton said:"People mention the fact that they're a hero class, but to us what that means is well, they have their own special starting experience – they start at level 55, which is very heroic compared to other characters – but that doesn't mean that at the end game they're supposed to be more powerful" - Taken from http://www.videogamer.com/news/tom_chilton_explains_wow_patch_3_2_decisions.html?page=2So being unlockable at a higher level is pretty much all that is meant by the term hero class, and this actually fits with how other RPGs design their "prestige" classes (see Neverwinter Nights/D&D). Therefore Worgen and Goblins starting at lvl 65 would make them "hero" races.Lezhteo, I agree with most of your points on why Blizzard isn't likely to implement these new races. I think if Blizzard didn't put a hell of a lot of work into the new races, possibly even providing new quests the entire way through their levelling experience from 1-90 (or 55/65-90), perhaps even bringing back race/class specific quests, there will be a lot of low level (or lvl 65ish) goblin bank alts in the game when people get bored of levelling them and go back to raiding or PvPing on their mains.
