I think they're all great, and it'll certainly have me creating more alts! Also, I've really wanted Dwarf Shamans ever since the Wildhammers joined the Alliance way back in TBC. So, I think that race/class combo is particularly overdue.

At this point, looks alone keep the Draenei as my preferred choice.So all we need now is Blizzard's promise to update and improve character textures.

Drawf shammies are likely to be the big draw for me - I love everything about my draenei pally - except that he's a draenei - awesome questing in the starting zone and the hit is great, but all in all I hate the aesthetics of the draenei. I've wanted to learn a shammy for a while now, but the idea of a drae shammy was too much for me.I guess the same goes for worgen druids - I'm more likely to roll a druid now - but I do worry about that class choice along with two others - tauren pally and elf mage - neither of which seem at the surface to be supported by KNOWN lore, and particularly the tauren pally, which I think might just be a little OP in the end.

I feel like I can finally accomplish my desire to have one of every healer class!Tauren Paladin (the only BE I can stand to play is a female rogue)Troll Druid (I've already had two level 80 Tauren Druid, I have no desire to roll another)Goblin Shaman (obviously need a goblin)Along with my Undead Priest (which I may race-change to Tauren in the future for the lulz)

You guys realize none of this is new content, right? New races aren't new content. New class combos aren't new content. Along with everything else that's getting recycled in this expansion as well as only 5 new levels and a ridiculously stripped-down stats system, this is going to be a bigger disappointment than WotLK.

@ PrestonFirst of all, there are seven new zones, not five. This may not be as many zones as WotLK, but they also clearly stated that Cataclysm will have more 5-mans and raids than any other expansion so far. So that's a lot of content. New races IS new content, because they come with their own starting zones and lore. New class/race combos isn't new content exactly, but it certainly is enjoyed by a lot of people. As for 'recycled' content, old Azeroth getting completely redesigned to make it easier to level 1 - 60, with graphical updates, is a huge undertaking. Also, it's technically not even expansion content- you'll get those changes whether you buy the expansion or not. The stats system is being stripped down for ease of use (which is a good thing!) in some ways, but the new path of the titans system allows for greater character customization and development. Not to mention a new profession and robust guild leveling system.So you can still complain, you'll just be wrong. But I can see that you're disappointed with Wrath too. Oh well, QQers will QQ. Such is life.

@jealouspirate80-85 = 5 new levels. hence their not saying 'zones'.race changing my human priest to gnome finally. hate human models so may very steer clear of worgen unless you *can* stay out of human form at all times. maybe oly as a druid? would be nice if they upped the character-per-server-cap by a little thoguh i doubt it'll happen. still have had ten toons since before wrath and had to delete my lock when it hit thanks to blizz's claims of dk's not taken up a character slot which obviously ended up not being the case. anyway going to roll a goblin lock to get my ten horde rolling ...already have ten allies under my belt.
