The "new race/class" combination list is one of the key things that makes this purported leak scream fake in all capitals. Until someone actually provides a source or Blizzard makes an official announcement it's wise to just look over that list with the same credulity given the National Enquirer.

The source was datamined NPCs found on the 3.2.2 PTR. I thought that was made pretty clear?http://db.mmo-champion.com/latestThey were found along with the other new NPCs added in 3.2.2.

Go look at the leaks about WotLK coming out the week of Blizzcon '08. They seemed every bit as wild and unbelievable, and people were just as skeptical, and they were spot on.

This happens every time they add something new. Without context, everything looks nuts. When DKs were first leaked, the responses were along the lines of, "If Blizz were ever going to add a Hero Class, they wouldn't add just one!" or "If they added DKs they would be so OP that no one would ever roll anything else" or "This sounds so stupid and ridiculous, if there are DKs they'll be restricted to humans and maybe dwarves because the only death knights currently in the lore are humans and humans with orc souls and dwarves and things would never change drastically enough for other races to be one and that would be unfair!"And yet they did add only one Hero Class, people still roll other classes and are rolling fewer DKs as they get one they like and stick with it or decide the class isn't for them, and we had a giant Scourge invasion to explain how Arthas got hold of members of every race to turn them into cannon fodder. What might not make sense in the world we know now will probably make sense once that world changes.
