With all the lore-related speculation on what the estabilshed races /used/ to have as a class, and opening up the door to getting them back, I've yet to see something else considered here. The Forsaken leader Sylvannas Windrunner was one of the highest ranking hunters in Azeroth. WAS. Like all the Forsaken, she lost those abilities when she died and was enslaved by the Lich King. To say that she can regain and share these skills with the Forsaken is setting up a precedent for Death Knights. I play a Blood Elf Death Knight on Twisting Nether and part of the role-playing involves walking through Silvermoon City remember what once was and his former life as a mage. Granted that meant killing off a few summoners at Dalaran Crater for his Dalaran Wizard Robe for his casual strolls on Walk of the Elders, but he has vengeance issues.The point I'm trying to make is that if the Forsaken can regain class abilities had in life, the argument can be made that Death Knights can too having also broken thee Lich King's control over them. I'm not just talking about my DK being able to cast (nerfed) Living Bomb again either. Shouldn't Morgraine be able to share his Pally skills with the Ebon Blade? With being able to change factions (already set up by quests that give faction with Argent Dawn, etc.) that possibility exists. Ret Pally DKs ftw! Wouldn't that be a hoot for everyone else!Before anyone says this can't happen, remember we also said this before these current race/class combos were proposed.

But Sylvanas didn't USED to be a ranger, she IS a ranger. Yeah, she lost some things when she became undead, but it's not like she took on a new class, as in the example of your ex-mage DK. She was a ranger in life, then she was killed and was briefly a banshee, then got her body back and just kept on being a ranger.
