Very interesting. Definitely did not see that coming. Believes that leaves Tauren as the only Horde race who can't be warlocks. Not that a Tauren warlock would make any sense at all.I wonder if any other new classes are in the cards. It doesn't really address the issue that Horde will have one more race/class combo than the Alliance. It's far from a game imbalancing problem, but it does feel a little strange. I doubt we'd see any more lock races added, but that does leave rogues as the only class to get no new races, other than the newly introduced Worgen and Goblins. The guy who started that thread was advocating for Draenei rogues, which I can certainly see happening. Female draenei are already pretty lithe, and with male orcs going around being rogues, it's not likely only the dainty can hide in the shadows. I support Draenei rogues.Adding another Paladin seems like the only other option, so your options are either adding that option for Night Elves (weird) or Gnomes (adorable), or giving them to Worgen. But that raises the problem that that'd give Worgen one more option than Goblins, and Blizz wants to keep those even. Otherwise, you could take an option away from the Worgen, but that could be bad too. Let's say you took away their ability to be warlocks; it could certainly work from a lore perspective, but I'd hate to be someone who'd been waiting for Cataclysm mainly to be a werewolf who summons demons.If Blizz wants to keep the race/class numbers even across the factions (and I don't know if they do, I believe a blue post once said they didn't really care), I have to say Draenei rogue might be the best option.

how about draenei and tauren rogues, and draenei warlocks? Horns and hooves...

I agree, I'd like to see an equal amount for both factions. It's a shame too that Draenei get nothing new... even though apparently there's a Draenei NPC mentioned in that thread that uses rogue abilities. To me rogue is at least the one they could implement. Explain it as some new fancy footwork (hoofwork) they came up with or whip up some of that advanced Draenei technology to quiet the noise they'd make walking.

The second they make Draenei rogues is the second I roll one. Hot chick with hooves that can stealth and stab? Fuck yeah.

Part of the reason why Draenei and Tauren cant be Rogues is'nt just down to their size, it's the race's beleifs.Hiding, backstabbing, poisons etc, are'nt really things the two (arguabley) "good" races would condone, let alone practice themselves.

Orc males can be rogues, and they're just as big as Draenei males.

Never will be Draenei locks, no way they take up demonic magic the very thing that's been trying to wipe them out for thousands of years. It would be like a jewish nazi...

There's nothing inherently evil about a rogue for the Draenei to abhor so I'm not buying that. In fact, I'd say there are honorable rogues and Draenei could emphasize that, if Blizzard wants to stick with them being completely good.I like to think Draenei would want reconnaissance done in a stealthful manner and rogues could be one such way. Besides, with the inclusion of the Draenei rogue on the Lost Isles, we've seen rogue abilities in three of the race's states: uncorrupted Draenei, Broken (Akama for one) and Lost Ones.

You have a point, but thats the reason Blizz have given for as long as the Tauren rogue argument has been aroundI personally would race change my rogue into a Tauren within a heartbeat given the chance.

If Draenei get druids or rogues (or both!) , im having a spaz attack either way.Who knows, my wish for Troll warlocks came true...

A tauren warlock wouldn't be entirely ridiculous. A tauren warlock could be a refugee from the Grimtotems or working with them as one of their agents.
