I guess they'll explain Orc Mages the simple way - Orc Warlocks got fed up (or feared losing their powers once they defeat the Burning Legion) or disgustes by their fel powers but did not want to turn to Shamanism but rather to a more "clean" approach to arcane magic. They asked Jaina Proudmoore, Mage Extraordinaire and friend of the Horde, to teach them. Done.I really hope they spin it damn well, Mage is my a favorite class and Orc is my favorite race (well, under Thrall), right now I'm a Blood Elf Mage (also a perfect fit, regarding Lore, which is why I chose it). So if they made a story that actually "enabled" me to play a Orc (Lore plays a big part in choosing my characters) Mage - damn, give it to me! ^^

@ nonentityThey shouldn't need to ask Jaina. Belf's are perfectly capable of teaching orcs arcane magic seeing as how humans learned it from them in the first place back before the scourge arrived and when they still called themselves high elves

Sorry, I'm a bit of a lore geek. Just ordered the War of the Ancients Trilogy a week ago =)

np, I'm also a Lore geek, it's getting more and more imporant for my enjoyment of WoW.Read the War of the Ancients trilogy couple weeks back, really good in terms of the Lore, you really learn a good deal about the whole story surrounding the first invasion of the Burning Legion, the Well of Eternity and the characters of Rhonin, Deathwing, Malfurion and so on.
