Worgen and Goblins are the new race.

Worgen: Alliance. Gilneas. warrior, hunter, rogue, priest, death knight, mage, warlock, druid.

Customizations: fur color, face model, hair (or mane if you prefer), hair color, and one customization option that doesn’t yet change anything. All colors are gray and blue tones, with dark, rainy, gothic scene in the background.

The Worgen were first unleashed upon the Eastern Kingdoms by Archmage Arugal during the Third War. Primarily used as a weapon against the Scourge, the beasts soon proved to be a burden greater than the humans of Lordaeron could bear. A mysterious curse began to spread among those who fought alongside the wolf-men, causing them to become worgen themselves. The curse rapidly spread as it reached Gilneas, trapping its inhabitants behind the very walls built to protect them. The survivors of the curse now seek to find a new fate for their people — their destiny unwritten.

Originally the slaves of jungle trolls on the Isle of Kezan, the goblin race was forced to mine Kaja’mite ore out of the undermine, deep in the bowels of mount Kajaro. Unbeknownst to anyone at the time, the mineral had magical properties that caused the goblins to rapidly increase in both cunning and intelligence. Tinkering their own powerful artifacts of engineering and alchemy in secret, the goblins overthrew their troll oppressors, taking over the island that they now call home. quickly rising to prominence as masters of mercantilism, goblins and their global trade conglomerates dominate all commerce across Azeroth.
