Blizz is removing select items from the store, and they'll no longer be available for purchase after Jan. 6th. All the helms and select pets and mounts are going out the window. We're not going to come out and say this looks like a cash-grab (cough) - but if you've been on the fence before about buying them, then be sure to check things out.
If the Vulpera are ever made an Allied race, I really think they should make the female Vulpera dance be the Hatsune Miku Nyan Cat dance. Yes, I know that the Vulpera are foxes, and that foxes are dogs, not cats, but I still think this would be hilarious, and since hilarity is the point of the dance command, I think that this would be really fun to see.
One thing I thought could be fun for future stories could be that players could take part in special questlines and stories just for their specific race that serve as tie in stories to the game story. I even have one for my favorite race, the Tauren.
The story begins when (in his game debut) Jevan Grimtotem receives an unexpected message with shocking news. Magatha's old age has finally caught up to her and she's dying. But since she left no designated heir, the crone fears that civil war could tear her already fractured tribe to pieces. So Magatha has ordered a tournament. The strongest Grimtotem leaders and their champions will battle over who will be the next leader.
Jevan is well aware of his people's crimes, but he refuses to turn his back on those who betrayed Cairne, and still loves them and thinks there's still good in them. As the leader of the Horde Grimtotem, he too can participate in the tournament and asks Baine for permission to represent the Horde at the tournment, and bring some Tauren champions with him.
Baine is initially reluctant, but Jevan claims that this could reunite the Tauren race, and restore Cairne's dream. Baine ultimatly gives Jevan his approval, but warns caution. If you join Jevan's team, travel to Thousand Needles, and participate in one on one fights against Grimtotem NPC's, and even other Tauren players.
However, unbeknowist to anyone, Horde or Grimtotem alike, Magatha has been keeping two secrets. One that only she and Cairne knew. Now on her deathbed, it seems that this secret could die with her. The other, could bean the salvation, or extinction of the Tauren. As a Tauren of the Horde, you must reunite your people and end the Horde Grimtotem war, or be among the final generation of Tauren.
What are your ideas for race side stories?
Apparently a fun little item was recently added to the game that's been in the game files since Vanilla: the Elixir of Tongues. Purchased in the Underbelly, it allows players to understand what the opposite faction is saying. Well, sort of. The catch is that those people on the opposite faction have to actually drink the Elixir themselves :P But hey, good for RP, right?

Prepare for the wave of hate and disillusionment too... Wowpedia folks must be stunned by the betrayal.
Also, we'll probably have to look into the massive project of trying to integrate Wowpedia somehow... they have lots of good stuff to steal... heh heh.
Here is a thread on this topic at the official WoW story forum.
Wanted to share with everyone the greetings that Blizzard sent along - hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season!
I don't know about you, but it's nice to see the night elves launching a counter-strike against the Horde. Not all night elves are the kind that dance on mailboxes, and hopefully this new Warfront will bring that to Sylvie's attention. The preview cinematic was nice to see, with Malfurion all "rawr" and Tyrande all "evil eye", so we'll see how this Warfront progresses.
Apparently according to those with "inside knowledge" at Kotaku, Blizz may be developing a mobile Warcraft game a la Pokemon Go. My first reaction was pretty eye-rolling, but then it occurred to me they could literally copy the same format and apply it to our little companion pets.
Still eye-rolling, but at least I probably won't be catching Jaina. Wait a minute....
