Really cant see how Blizz could implement the ethereals as a playable race, they are cool for sure but they have no faces and you need to think of how they are going to look in plater armor etc.

Let's see. Customization options could include bandage color, glow color, and perhaps other decorations. But you're right, it would be hard to make them distinct considering the kinds of things WoW characters wear. One thing that might work would be to have the things they wear seem to be floating slightly apart from other things, so you can always see the glow underneath.

If they put in etheral's they would make their armor fit them like the forsaken I imagine. And I thought of the same as you did, no face or anything so that hair customization is kinda out the window. Would have to be color for bandages, different type's of bandage wrapping and/or design's. As much as I would love to see them as playable, I see it more likely we would get naga's than them(and I would love to play as an etheral).

@ dkhar:Here's my hope for the future races: in the next expansion, we get to go to a new land, and there we meet new races previously unknown in the lore. By the time the expansion ends, each side has one of those new races as an ally, so when it's announced that those races get to officially join and become player characters, there's plenty of backstory and reason behind it.I'm pretty much in favor of anything that makes for a good story with less QQing. ^_^ Also hoping for a new hero class in the next expansion, but that's not part of this discussion.
