I don't know about arrakoa as a playable race. But I heard about a new orphan: Tweety.

If the Alliance gets Arakkoa, the Horde demands Ethereals!

I woud love fo the ethereals to be added as playable by both sides but with blizz generally wanting you to be able to pick out silhouttes I doubt it will happen

They could make one race playable by both factions and give them a slight twist in color/form. Humans and belfs are roughly (not exactly) the same size. If everyone is all armored up I don't think the silhouette issue is as big as they like it to be. Especially in arenas where you often face off against same faction teams.

Ethereals on Horde side?! Listen, I already pay the Goblins for "protection". The last thing we need is the two of them starting turf wars *within* the Horde.This must be some elaborate Alliance plot, now that I think of it.

Indeed. The Horde already got the moneyminded Goblins. The Alliance moving to get the Ethereals as a counterpoint to it would be a great move.I can't see anything but ogres in Horde side. They were allied to them in all previous RTS games. I still dont see why they aren't already in Horde side.New expansion: Outland (and related zones) revamped (Cataclysm style), Ogres and Ethereals as new races, Battlemage as a new class.

Bugger that....I want "broken" Dranei for the horde! That would be all kinds of awesome, the natural extension of the only-ever-so-slightly-obvious conflict within the Dranei society coming to the forefront. Plus, Broken just look creepy-cool.Or, y'know, Pandas. Gimme some panda lovin.

They still need to make available the options within the existing factions before expanding, brown maghar orcs, Taunka, fresher forsaken (human dk models/dark rangers), Broken Draenei, Dark Irons (current options not dark enough), Wildhammers (wtb tattoo options as haircuts). Some of these are nothing more then colour or skin options, a few would need new models and I know thats rough cause you have to design new armor. Still no reason for no Orc/Dwarf subspecies.

Yeah right...and their faction leader is named Bigbird? :)

what needs to happen is that they unlock the neutral factions to be playable and in a starting zone of their own on their own world or phased area.at the end of the long quest line depending on what choices you make in the quests, you are assigned to either the horde or the alliance. of course this would make questing in these area interesting. you would have two choices of what to do for the quest for example if you have to question a prisoner or something like that. do you punch him and kick him to get the information or do you make promises you have no intentions of keeping and depending on which choices you make through several quests like that you go out into the world at large as a new recruit of the horde or the alliance.

I'll never understand why people like Ethereals so much. To each their own. :)

My vote for new race is the GNOLLS! Yeah! Gnolls on the Horde. That would be great!

"I still dont see why they aren't already in Horde side."Actually, they are. At least, some of them are. Rexxar brought at least one tribe of ogres into the Horde, which you can talking to one of the questgivers in Feralas about.

@joshychristgood old fable... the nostalgy...

I think the furbolgs are more likely to be the next alliance race... not because we need more furry races but because the horde already has a more civilized race and we need a more tribal race on the alliance. Furbolgs were already good friends with the nelfs before they were corrupted by demons and the ones on the draenei isles become good friends with the draenei after you help them so much througout the questing... but yeah ogres for the horde... I know there are a lot of neutral ogres around and they didn't like the horde after the second war, but considering how many instances there are in the game of ogres still having loose ties to the horde, there could certainly be a tribe of ogres that decide to stop being neutral just like the goblins did...
