The introduction of the Rangari and, even more importantly, the presence of a bonafide Draenei Rogue in the Alliance followers list —
— has Draenei enthusiasts hoping for playable Draenei Rogues in the next expansion.
I’m inclined to agree that it’s a distinct possibility!
If we’re going to let the Draenei with their clip-cloppy hooves be Rogues, Tauren should get to be Rogues, too!
Prior to Cataclysm, I thought there was pretty decent support for Tauren eventually becoming Mages — I distinctly remember seeing Grimtotem casters in Stonetalon Mountains and other Grimtotem areas using Fireball. Sadly, since Cataclysm, Grimtotem casters only use Shaman or Druid spells (I checked their abilities on Wowhead).
Some of the Crazed Mages in Blackrock Caverns are Tauren, though…
Gnomes still need a mail-wearing class. Hunters could certainly be a good fit — and now that we have Goblin Shamans with their mechanized totems and bargains with the elements, why not Gnome Shamans, too?
Cataclysm introduced this fellow in Kirthaven:
Mists introduced Andrea Toyas and her dancers, who hang out in the Shrine of Seven Stars and sometimes grace the Halfhill Market:
Warlords has introdued these two lovely Draenei ladies:
One of them is in the inn at Embaarii Village, and the other is in the Mess Hall in Stormshield. There may be more of these Draenei harpists in other Alliance locations in Draenor — I haven’t explored far enough yet as Alliance to find out.
Could this be laying the way for a Bard/Minstrel class? Or will musicians continue to be exclusively NPCs?
I would totally re-roll my Night Elf Mage as a Minstrel, given that her backstory is that she’s a musician.
On a somewhat related note, I would not at all be surprised if the Legendary follower that we get for jumping through Khadgar’s hoops in Patch 6.1 turns out to be Cordana Felsong.
