With all the hooting and hollering (and unnecessary swearing mind you), you can see just talking about a new Draenei class upsets people. Which is sad, it's fine to retort a new class for them but the way people are spitting venom to anyone who suggests it? Tsk tsk.And honestly, Blizzard could do anything they'd want with Draenei lore, making any class possible. They could even make some kind of story where we find out they're evil all along and playing us for fools. I've covered the rogue option, but as for warlock and druid, I could see those happening, even if less likely in current lore standards.Warlocks have this as slight evidence: http://www.wowhead.com/npc=18815So Blizzard could have been thinking up a way for the noble Draenei to be strong enough to control the shadow without being corrupted by it. I'm not sure that makes the best sense though, but I found it interesting. After all, we have Blood Elves that forced the light to enable them to make paladins and soon we'll have Goblins twisting elemental wrists so they can be shaman. It's not entirely implausible for Draenei to take control of shadow with the light in times of great loss and war.And druids, that has no evidence whatsoever. Which doesn't break the case. There's no strong evidence for or against, just speculation. Blizzard could easily tie in some story of a Draenei going on a quest to find Druidic powers by chance or such.Overall, I don't mind if they don't get a new class option. It'd be nice, but I'm mostly pining for some Draenei lore. There was so very little in this expansion, and I haven't seen much in the ways for Cataclysm yet, it makes me wonder. They're such an interesting race, it'd be a shame to see them neglected further.
