@Alex Ziebart: But ALL classes DO make sense in that any race can become any of them.The only thing preventing any race from wielding the Light is faith. *Period*. Your faith in your ability to use the Light literally grants you the power to do so--regardless if you are living, dead, or undead, as we learned in Wrath. And as we have learned in Cataclysm, you do not necessarily have to believe in the Light to use it, either.The paladin is a class that is defined by being a just guardian--a vanquisher of evil, and through your faith in your ability to do this task, you are granted the power to do so. This is the base philosophy that ties ALL paladins together--that no matter if you believe in the Light, a twisted version of it, or the eye of the Earthmother, that ALL of them wish to drive evil out from the world, to make it a safe place for those who would do it good, and to ultimately be their stalwart protectors and warriors. I have a feeling that future paladin armor is going to reflect this--defense of the weak, protection of the innocent, and the vanquishing of evil.For Death-Knights, the only requirement is that the person in question can have experienced life and death--or rather, that their soul can be severed from their body.If you want to be a warrior, rogue, or hunter, you just have to pick up weapons and train with them (and as for rogues, size has nothing to do with stealth, as we saw in The Shattering. Tauren can make perfectly good rogues, it just requires the deceptive mindset). As for warlocks, mages, shaman and priests, one simply has to study the magic (and in the case of priests, believe in it. And in the case of shamans, have that trait of humility that allows them to be a tool of the elements). And while their respective cultures may frown upon learning such magics, there isn't anything at all that can stop any Draenei from suddenly taking lessons in Fel magic. It is extremely far-fetched-- and indeed, a lot of class combinations can seem far-fetched. But to say that no combination can ever make sense is to frankly deny that any combination can exist at all because in the long run, there is nothing genetically different that will prevent any race from going along any of those class paths.This goes on for all classes:
