Serious question; Shouldn't the ORIGINAL races get something, so that the Allied races don't just feel objectively superior?

I know people are suggesting Heritage Armor left and right now, and I'm not even saying that...

BUT...

When you have "Lightforged Draenei" coming down the pipeline, it's hard to see "regular Draenei" as anything but inferior. Same with "Tauren" versus "Highmountain Tauren". These aren't just "new options", but they feel almost like "superior options".

In another instance; wasn't the entire justification for Night Elves getting Mages in Cataclysm that they were supposed to be Highborne? So now, you've got nature-loving Night Elf Mages, Highborne/Nightborne Mages, and then Blood Elf Mages, who were supposed to represent why the Highborne were exiled, and eventually lead to the Quel'dorei.

It feels like... kind of a mess. And I love me some cosmetic options, but it's hard not to feel like these "Allied Races" aren't muddying the identity of the races that we already have.

I mean... What makes Blood Elves unique, now? They're not the most experienced Mages anymore, the Silver Convenant basically undermined all the hardships they faced during WC3, Void Elves are this whole other can of worms, and it seems like the cultures are starting to bleed together.

Like I said, I'm all for new cosmetic options, and I'm really hoping we get Mag'har (especially those with Warsong tattoos). But I also have some concerns about Allied races feeling like "powered-up versions" of classic races.

Could Khadgar actually kill Gul'dan by himself?

Serious question; Shouldn't the ORIGINAL races get something, so that the Allied races don't just feel objectively superior?People always like to joke and complain that Khadgar doesn't really do anything during the Gul'dan fight, being mostly useless. This got me thinking - People like to boast about how strong Khadgar is (the greatest wizard of our time, an insanely powerful mage, etc. etc.), and I was curious, what is his actual power, and could he actually overpower Gul'dan in a 1 on 1 fight? What else could Khadgar theoretically do by himself in terms of defeating enemies? I figure he's letting us do the work in order to conserve his energy in case an even greater threat appears, but if he really went all out, what could he do? submitted by /u/xTraxis [link] [comments]...
