Thing is to add JUST A SINGLE RACE (Goblins) with a pandaren ALIKE faction choice.
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

You make goblin and you pick a faction which you wanna side with...

Clear now?
Yo, dawg, I heard you like a faction withing a faction so we made ya a bike so you cycle while on a bike. turtle_tongue

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? angry_turtle

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... dead_turtle_head

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. smiling_turtle

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. satisfied_turtle_head

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. angry_turtle

@Kazgirm
5 % is too much...
But overall, I REALLY like your ideas... and they should really consider PMing you about it and at least try to make it happen.

I don't see the issue of having a neutral race in the game. As far as coding and balancing goes any new content would throw that off, it's up to the Devs to "Right the ship" so to speak. I can't speak for everyone but it was the slower pace and the focus on rp and pve that drew me in, not so much that it was CLASSIC, it could be BC, WoTLK, Cata, Mist, WoD, Legion, or BFA, I like what this community is doing, I don't care what style of WoW it is. Ultimately it's up to the Turtles (Both Dev and Players) to discuss and decide what we want (Still wouldn't mind playing a bomb toting Goblin Warrior though).

tbh fully honest... I was driven by vanilla and rates, but ascension wow made me value the quality custom ideas.
What Pompa made with this disguise idea is great concept and we should support it.
Reliving some of the old ideas and making them happen and playable... I'm all up for it.

As you said, devs have the final word, but this neutral goblin race has my vote totally. It would be super unique and biggest feature of the server for sure.

Here's a quick list I compiled of great ideas that were scrapped before launch. Keep in mind I filtered only quality and unmentioned content.
  • Plainsrunning - Tauren racial ability that increases movement speed.
  • Lacerate - Survival Hunter melee ability.
  • Isle of Doctor Lapidis - An island off to the coast of STV.
  • Outland - A 54-60 leveling zone.
  • Old Succubus - A less clothed version of the one we have today.
  • Hunter's Focus - Hunters' only resourse that regenerated when standing still.

Anyways, just throwing some ideas for fun. I love what you guys did with the rest of the Sands of Time additions, including the latest one, as well as the Gurubashi Arena quest system. It's truly joyful to see our favorite game get quality flavoring!
