@YengI was thinking the exact same thing!Now consider this: Ozzy + Bark at the Moon + 3 Wolf Moon t-shirt = a Maelstrom of Manliness! I will have so many chicks coming back to my airbrushed van, it'll be ridiculous.

@vaeevictissIf you're wondering why you were downrated: when did Blizzard say they were allowing race changes, aside from faction-change?

This settles it: I'm wearing my Three Wolf Moon shirt to Blizzcon. I don't care about the risks.And I pretty much just had a joygasm at the thought of rolling a worgen. I'll probably re-roll a warlock to replace my current human main one if they don't give us race changes by then.Oh God this news made me happy.

While the theory that the playable Worgen will be ex-Gilneas makes a lot of sense it would put another Alliance race on Eastern Kingdoms. When the speculation for the new races began before BC it was commonly held that Blizzard would start the new Alliance in Kalimdor and Horde in Eastern Kingdoms to balance out the populations on the continents. That ended up being the case.If Blizzard wanted to do the same for this next expansion then perhaps the playable Worgen we will be the Scythe of Elune summoned variety as they have an established population in Kalimdor already. There are a few unused areas on the map tha could do - though Blizz could just change the map again (the Azeroth map is currently unavailable on the official site with the explantion given that it is old and outdated).I'm still hoping for a return to Gilneas though :)
@Durane, I've never, ever seen a Worgen or Goblin Deathknight.

@BelWhy would they make the new races the ONLY ones that can't become Death Knights? Regardless of past Death Knight lore, Blizz's criterion is simple:"Can you die? If yes, congrats, you are eligible to join the Scourge as a Death Knight. Please ask for assistance at the nearest Necropolis."

I still get to kill worgen!

I was hoping the new alliance race would be the Pandarens. Wow used them as a spoof for Burning Crusade but they would fit so well into the game. If anyone has played the old Warcraft games they would know about them. A type of Samurai race that harbours in the far reaches of a secluded island at the center of the world map. Just seeing the artwork of them by Blizzard artist Samwise http://www.sonsofthestorm.com/gallery.php?artist=samwise would make me want to play them more then the Worgen.
