 I kinda think this is a big F.

😕

But why? I cannot see the downside other than top tier raiders having to spend money to race change if one of those races becomes the best option in the race for WF but that doesn't matter to 99% of the playerbase.

They are going to add them eventually, but paladin is one of classes that requires additional assets (in this case, each race gets a different mount). Their plan is to enable all classes for all races, except maybe for demon hunters and evokers (but it's not impossible).

I believe that this is a huge bullshit from Blizzard.

The race combo for alliance druids and shamans are way too limited compared with the horde options.

They should add more options for alliance shamans and druids.

The only class that is in a bit of option disadvantage from the horde is Paladin, but is 3 vs 5, still not fair. Just look at the shamans.

Anything but at this point.

It's an RPG game, stuff like class/race conbos has to make cultural sense. Or, as pointed out in the example above, common sense.

Shamans, Druids, Paladins and Priests are religious-oriented groups first and foremost, some races simply do not have associated beliefs at all, let alone widespread.

But there isn't a lot of religious stuff going on in Warcraft, so no race is restricted. Most of them connect to some force or type of magic that simply exists in that universe. For example, Light isn't a power coming from some god here. Even its "worship" aspect is more about philosophy, to become a better person, helping others or at least to believe that you are doing something good. It's not like D&D, where to become a cleric or paladin requires you to have to worship some deity, and if you stray from their path and ideals, you will become "fallen". 

Even in D&D there are no more race/class restrictions, so you can have combinations like dwarf druid or orc paladin.

What is the problem with the Horde having more Shaman capable races and the Alliance having more Paladin capable races? They're more prominent in the faction that they are more culturally relevant to, and many of the class capable races in the opposing faction are just adaptations of very specific sub-cultural beliefs to fit the class archetype.

Except the Tauren Sunstriders and priests are culturally reflected in their duality religious beliefs of the two eyes of the Earth Mother, An'she for the Sun and Mu'sha for the Moon. Yet the Kal'dorei have no paladins and their priests worship Elune. The druids serve Nature itself, and in so end up serving both the Sun, the Moon, and the land itself (which encompasses the plants and animals). Kul Tiran Tidesages aren't shamans in the traditional sense as the Horde sees it, but their affinity for the elements makes it the closest thing for them to be for gameplay. Some (even in the Horde) would argue that Goblins aren't really shamans, given their relationship with the elements is stripped down to the basics of a contract, yet the elements seem to have no issue with it. Blood Knight paladins originally obtained their abilities through force from M'uru, and now after the remains of M'uru and Anveena have re-ignited the Sunwell to a combination of Arcane/Holy, are empowered through it.

Class abilities being standardized for gameplay shouldn't be taken as an interpretation that there's no religion in WoW, even if said religion might turn out to be incorrect (Mograine and Uther both conflated their service of the Light with Bastion, even though that was revealed to be utterly inaccurate).

But these are not real gods. What I meant is an objective concept of gods in fantasy and having their powers tied to them. An'She and Mu'sha might be just an interpretation of Elune. Elune herself might be just a construct, since Winter Queen was one and she is her sister. So yeah, Elune might be a droid, while others (if they exist), are the same or something similar. So it's just a belief that these "gods" might exist, but even if you don't believe in them and/or you are from different culture, you can still learn or obtain these powers. This can work in Warcraft, but it wouldn't work with actual gods (with their existence and powers being a fact) in something like D&D.

If you mean specific orders, Tidesages consist of different classes (shamans, priests, mages). So classes as we know them, do exist in the lore, it's just that same classes can come from different backgrounds. And I don't see why goblins can't be real shamans, the way they obtain power may differ, but they still command elemental powers and it leads to same effect.

And as mentioned before, powers aren't tied to any deity. In D&D they are tied to actual gods, where they have domains. In Warcraft you don't have to be a good person and you might still be able to use Light (and no gods and religion required), while in D&D there is no choice. If you've abandoned your god, you lose related powers (good and evil are tangible concepts there). In Warcraft a civilization might, for example, have a specific order dedicated to the Light, but it doesn't need one. An individual from a different civilization might learn how to wield the Light or commune with nature, become a druid etc. So no one is "locked out".

I don't see why it matters anymore since Alliance and Horde can play together in group content now. In time, all races will probably be able to be any class with some exceptions like demon hunter and evoker. Give it time.

      Find out what others are planning to main in the War Within expansion!
      With just 40 days until the War Within early access launch, players have been sharing their main class choices on Reddit, generating over 900 responses!
      We've taken the data and created a bar chart illustrating the number of comments for each class (or spec) mentioned in the Reddit discussion and here are the results!


      Most Popular Classes:
      Hunters: 121 replies Paladins: 103 replies Druids: 101 replies Mages: 96 comments Shamans: 58 replies Warriors: 49 comments Priests: 44 comments Rogues: 28 comments Warlocks: 25 comments Monks: 18 comments Evokers: 12 comments Death Knights: 10 comments Demon Hunters: 7 comments The most popular classes are Hunters, Paladins, and Druids and the least popular class people plan on playing in the War Within is the Demon Hunter.
      Hunters are the obvious choice because they are easy to play and have unparalleled survivability. With two pets out, there's barely a chance enemies will ever touch you before they die. The class has good mobility because most spells can be cast on the move. Paladins are favored for their ability to both tank and heal. Many players also love the class fantasy and armor. Druids are often picked for their versatility. You have the whole package in 1 class. They also bring a lot of utility in both Mythic+ and raids. Maybe you're thinking, "Stan, why should I choose my main based on what most people pick according to Reddit comments?" That's a valid question—you don't have to. This post is just here to give some ideas, like when you're looking up names for your WoW character. If you're truly interested in what the pros have to say, check out our recent Mythic+ tier lists from the Beta, created by Petko!

      Find out how Delve gearing works in the War Within Season 1!
      Now that Beta feels almost complete, it's time to check out how Delve gearing works in the new Season! For starters, it's important to mention a few things:
      Delves have 11 tiers of difficulty. The first 3 tiers unlock are unlocked by default. Tier 4+ will unlock by completing the previous difficulty of Delves without running out of revives. The amount of revives you have at your disposal will decrease the higher the difficulty you go. Regular Delves (regardless of Tier) provide Item Level 554 gear that cannot be upgraded. Bountiful Delves (Tier 8-11) provide Item Level 603 3/8 Champion gear. They require Restored Coffer Keys earned from weekly activities. These are not capped. Delver's Bounty is an item that drops from Delves once per week that guaranteed s Hidden Trove at the end of your next run. This contains Item Level 610 1/6 Hero gear in Tier 8. The Great Vault now includes Delves in the War Within. The item level is capped at Tier 8, which means doing Tier 9-11 is for bragging rights only, as explained in an interview with the devs. Thanks to MrGM for providing the details.
