This is ridiculous.
I just want to start with that statement, since arguing for what classes should be available to what races has always been a pointless endeavour in World of Warcraft. If I was a wise person, I’d let it rest and give in to the inevitability of playing what feels like my perfect race as a different class (I mean Sunnier and a race of hooved, big-horned, tattooed light people?!).
But I spent all of Blizzcon obnoxiously telling everyone who would listen about why I thought lightforged should be playable as monks, so I’m going to finish out with this little blog post and leave it at that. Worst comes to worst, I’ll continue as my vanilla-Draenei monk, or play a warrior as one of my mains in Battle for Azeroth, or convince my guild to become traitors to the Alliance so that I can live as the other love of my life — the hooved, antlered, tattooed/painted race of Highmountain Tauren.
