Blizzard has already changed its stance on race changes from an unpopular position announced earlier today
. Blizzard will now be allowing you to get a paid race change to take advantage of the new race/class combinations when patch 4.0.3a drops tomorrow.
We know this is confusing, but this the real deal. Blizzard will let you change to something as awesome as a tauren paladin starting tomorrow.
The full blue statement is as follows:
Paid Race Change to the new class combos will be available as soon as they are available to create (with the release of 4.0.3a)
This is an update to the previous expected functioning of this service. We're in the process of ensuring everyone here has this latest updated information, just know that this is what's now accurate. :)
Note, you will not be able to race change to a goblin or worgen until after Cataclysm
