Is Blizzard done with race/class combos?
So, as the title says, can I still hope that they'll add more race/class combos? :)

Well, we're adding the pandaren and monk in Mists of Pandaria and the monk class will be available to all races save for goblin and worgen, so you could say that, "yes, we're still adding new race/class combos." That said, we want to make sure that when we add things like this that they make sense for the longevity of the game so we can't make any guarantees as to what or how often these will be added into the game. Balancing new classes into the game is a bit more difficult than adding a new race, but there are obviously complexities to both.

I think what Lanter is asking about if races will get other classes. Remember how Cata got Human Hunters, Night Elf Mages, Tauren Paladins, etc...?


That too is always a possibility if the developers feel it makes sense, but it would still incur some amount of additional development to make it all fit within the world both in terms of the story and in terms of items/gear.

Would a Gnome monk be Yoda!light?


I have no doubt that should the name "yogurt" not be taken by the time the combo is available, it will be shortly thereafter.

I say this with love, because I know you care about spelling. It's "pandaren", not "pandaran". *hug*


Fixed it. I'm blaming tooth pain for the incorrect spelling. I'm going to now curl up under my desk in a ball and shiver for my infraction. :(
