Add JUST A SINGLE RACE to game means recreating or editing too many items, models and animations for not JUST A SINGLE RACE but to an entire huge chunk of data and alike not to mention a background sewed with OTHER RACES as well, otherwise it'd be just a pretty amature patching for the sake of patching, pure nonsense. angry_turtle_head
Yo, dawg, I heard you like a faction withing a faction so we made ya a bike so you cycle while on a bike.
For now we have a clearly almost balance between factions due to OP Blessing of Kings buff and Cleanse from paladins and so-so but still OP Grounding Totem and Tremor Totem from shamans. So there is some sort of a balance to that. Adding another race with a choice for faction would make a huge disbalance, also goblin's animations are far from "almost nearly done" stage as you could see from a post above. Just compare it with other races at least!
What I'm suggesting is you don't walk over these rakes all over again and set your thoughts on improving Classic content without trying to invent a bike again. You want another race added since you got bored with Classic ones? This must be not the content you like then, eh? Why don't you just furl away to some Pandamonuim content, eh?
Point is you better be working on roleplaying part for existing races since you have the fire within you for such a thing, instead of inventing a bike and suggest some huge disbalance which would clearly make out of Turtle WoW one of these "ohhh-look-how-cool-this-server-is-with-all-the-shiny-stuff-they-shove-in" silly servers for kids with no balance in mind but the shiny stuff and epixx, zomfg, so cool...
Please remember the motto of the server - "It's better to quest and die than never to have quested at all."
And the video it had most of us lured into it, CLASSIC server with CLASSIC races and CLASSIC quests.
Sure thing, Grand Turtles give us a great opportunity to suggest things which would IMPROVE CLASSIC WoW they have on their hands with RP in mind and PvE content as a main goal, so focus on that.
An example might be a quest with escorting Gilthares Firebough in quest "Free From the Hold". Gilthares might be boring with his idle ramblings along the way and perhaps ain't that much sneaky as should be logicaly, but the RP is there and it's working perfectly. That's what you be better suggesting to some NPCs all over the existing CLASSIC world we all love and hold dear to. No need to tread on a rake again.
