WoW Race Changes Coming Soon

WoW_RaceChange

I didn’t think it was going to happen, but I suppose that the fact that faction changes became a reality means anything is possible: Blizzard did say they were contemplating giving you the option to change your character’s race among the choices in your faction, but according to the WoW Account Management page (I screenshotted mine above) the button is already there, just marked with “coming soon.”

It kind of makes sense: faction changes were probably harder to implement and included a lot of the mechanics needed for race changes. But it goes to push the point I mentioned in my post: Factions, Classes, Genders, Haircuts: Do Choices Matter Anymore in Azeroth?

As soon as this is live, I don’t think there’ll be anything about your character that you can’t change if you’re willing to drop the cash. Do you think this dilutes the choices you make at the beginning of the game? Are you willing to drop what will probably be $20 or $25 dollars to change your character’s race? Shout it out in the comments!

    I’m excited. Some racials are better than others. :)
