Official classes for Kul Tirans announced: Warrior, Hunter, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Druid.... and Shamans!!! It looks like they agree that Tidesages are not Mages or Priests, but Shamans. :)

Racials

Brush it Off: Increases versatality and regenerate a portion of damage taken.
Child of the Sea: Hold breath longer and faster swim speed.
Haymaker: Haul off and punch an enemy, stunning and knocking them back (really good pvp racial)
Jack of all Trades: increase to all professions.
Rime of the Ancient Mariner: Reduces Frost and Nature damage taken.

Official classes for Zandalari: Druid, Hunter, Mage, Warrior, Priest, Monk, Shaman, Rogue, and Paladin!

Racials

Pterrodax Swooop: can whistle up a Pterrodax to glide you to the ground.
Embrace the Loa: Pray to a Loa and gain their favor.
Regeneratin': concentrate to quickly heal over a short time.
City of Gold: additional loot from slain enemies.

Exciting news, but I was disappointed when the new orcs had no warlock class. I figured the Zandalari would make up for that. Guess not. :(

Yeah, that is a bit odd. There isn't a presence of Zandalari locks in Zandalar, but there is lore that would support it. Too bad :(

Weird conflicting info from Blizzcon and MMO-Champ
https://www.mmo-champion.com/content/
https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/battl ... lied-races
The classes don't match up. :| :mrgreen:

Might be an error on Mmo-C's part including Warlocks for Zandalaris.

City of Gold: additional loot from slain enemies. That's a good racial. Would be handy for farming.

So Zandalari are getting Warlocks, despite the website saying otherwise :D

Updated models for Goblin and Worgen finally making it in. Shame though, female Worgen are absolutely trash. Blizzard went pants on head with their design, and made them cutesy anime-inspired dog people instead of proper Worgen. The other three are amazing changes, but my god did they royally screw up the femdogs. They seem to have forgotten what Worgen are even supposed to be at this point.

At least I have two new druids coming when KT and Zandalar become playable. I need to go prep my horde alt to get ready for Trolls, since I'm still only 113. Zandalar sucks to level in.

Crawgs are the best hunter pet. Prove me wrong.
Oh wait...you can't!

Name the game these characters are from, and I'll be amazed.

Zandalari Warlocks and Kul Tiran mages were apart of the official WoW recap yesterday, but have since been removed. Looks like they are not a possible race/class combo.

I think it's fine, as long as they give them actual unique faces. Some more aggressive ones with eyes more akin to the males, etc. Considering BEs, NEs and pandas have diff eye colors tied to diff faces I'm hoping they'll do the same with worgen females.

Plus, these models are still in development and thus feedback can change things that the majority of people do not like.

I really like the female worgen. They look smart and sassy. The eyes are little large, but, eh, not the end of the world. Far more right with them than wrong and....I mean, just look.

Isn't that an improvement?

Agreed, imo it is a huge improvement over the old Worgen female. They no longer look like a chihuahua that got hit on the snout.

IMO the female worgen always looked better and less generic then the male one.

The vanilla worgen will always be my fave. That's the classic.

They never drank the green demonade, so no warlock for them. Especially after the demon invasion in Tanaan Jungle.

Still no warlock listed there for Zandalari Trolls, so I guess we will have to wait for an official statement on which is wrong, the panel from BlizzCon or the site. That's if they don't decide to change the site later on to add warlock.

As for the female worgens, I REAAAAAALLY like the new model, even with the Disney eyes. At least it's way better than what we have now, and other eye options could be in the works to. This is just one face we're seeing. SO GLAD the perma-snarl is gone too.

I LOVE what they've done to the new models. I'd love to see the glowy eyes of the males, but honestly overall I could care less. This is a vast improvement and they're gorgeous models in their own right.

More than anything else, that! It didn't make them look fierce. It made them look dyspeptic.

Indeed! The eyes on the old model have such a weird, glassy look, like they have some kind of eye disease. The iris colors are weirdly muted. Nothing redeeming about them. And the half-closed, bedroom eyes look is just so weird that I can't understand what they were even going for or how that made it in the first place.
