I kind of thought the same thing about why there wasn't Blood Elf druids with the addition of Night Elf mages. It used to be that NEs had druids and BEs had mages, but then something happened (and really there is a Know Your Lore article explains it better than I can remember) to allow NEs to be mages. But whatever it was did not allow BEs to be druids. There was a great explanation in a Queue article as to why that is (I asked the question and it was answered, I just don't remember which one and I'm too lazy to search to grab a link lol). Legitimate lore reason as to why BEs will never be allowed to be druids. I'm sure there are similar lore reasons as to why Trolls can't be Paladins. Then again, if every race that could be a priest could also be a pally, there would be night elf pallys.. and I'm not even sure how that would work.. though if it was possible, I'd make one just because I like NEs and their starting zone. Also, if I remember correctly, there was a KYL about The Light and how it works for the classes that use it, part of that could explain why certain races can use the light in certain ways and not in others, or not at all. Though I think every race has at least one light-weilding class (though I could be wrong about that). Besides, I think its possible to have too many choices sometimes. Lore aside, there are just some race/class combos that would either be way over represented, or way under. I know that DKs can be any race, but really.. I haven't seen many gnomes or trolls. Not to say that they aren't being played, I'm sure someone somewhere has them.. they're just aren't as many as say humans, NEs, orcs or goblins (the ones I've personally seen the most of). I think race/class restrictions make players make choices about the character they're creating.
