So what if I'm rolling with a Fennekin, the free superpowered Torchic you get over the WFC, and the Charmander that Professor Sycamore gives you? I need that Mega Charizard X, man. And like I'm gonna pick a water-type starter. Please.
Considering that we have 13 races, new character models will keep things visually fresh, and we just got a new class last expansion, do you think it's possible that we'll see no new race(s) or class in the upcoming expansion? If so, what are some interesting alternatives Blizzard could put in instead of those traditional features?
I'll put it this way: I would be very, very surprised if there's a new race in the next expansion. I think the majority of manpower that would've gone to new races is going to the character model revamp, and rightfully so. As for new classes, I just hope there isn't one. I think we're at the higher end of possible class variety right now. If we do get one, though, I hope it uses mail.
I'm hoping with the new models we'll see a higher degree of customization available, whether that means a lot more options for existing slots (hair, etc) or new slots too.
