My hope? Ethereals join the alliance. Pandaren can join the horde. But if I can get a wind/arcane space mummy with an attitude that would make a goblin feel charitable? I will be a happy man.

This. One thousand times this.

Surely the Ogres would be a better fit? Smart ones like the Ogri'la? Particularly in the Death Knight flavor.

I'm with you here.

Ethereals are far more driven greed than goblins, and much more amoral as well. They're the Unscrupulous Corporate CEO's to the Goblins Shady Traders and Black Market WIzards....I can see them joining alliance because they're so "surface civilized", but if they did, it would put a stake once and for all in the notion that the Alliance are the "good" races.

It'd more likely be the reverse - "cute" Pandaren to the alliance and Ethereal "vagabonds" to the Horde - if it was either.

If this comes to pass (unlikely, but fun to speculate), it'd be the first time I feel like the Horde got the worse of the new races. Ethereal animations are great, they have an interesting past that has enough room to be greatly expanded on and they're just damn cool.Customisation would be interesting, but I'm sure they can go under a slight redesign to have vague facial features to alter.

Unless we get the Pandyr instead of the Pandaren.

It wouldn't be the end of 'good' races; if you recall, they aren't totally corrupted by the notion of greed - Nexus-Prince Haramad opts out on giving the ata'mal crystal to Kael'thas and the blood elves because he's so inspired by the player's selflessness and lets you take it to A'dal instead.
I would think the fact that Tauren are Horde would have already put a stake in the notion that Alliance are the "good" races.

ACH - I I would hope the exact opposite! It just goes to show - someone's going to feel ripped-off no matter what they do. :)
