Neutral Races?

I have thought about this for a while and have come to the conclusion of Neutral Races.


Goblins, Tuskarr, Ogres, Naga, and Murlocs.

Those Races could all start in different areas just like any other Race but they should start off on their own Continent......except Tuskarr.

They all have individual capitals like Tuskarrtropolis and Undermine.

They do a quest at level 30 to Attune to a Faction....Alliance or Horde.....These quests work like Aldor and Scryer to allow PvPing and other stuff like that.....


They all can ride mounts for a certain race without being Exalted like Goblins can ride Horses and Undead Horses without going to Exalted with Humans and Forsaken. And they get their own race's mount like the Goblin Rocket MKIII.

The horde and Alliance can be Exalted with the Neutral races as well....

Just an idea......Suggestions?

I could rather a neutral "class" rather than neutral races. Having a class like (random ex.) blademasters go through a series of quests similar to the DK chain, and then choose which faction (by a simple choice, like saving an officer of a faction or stopping an invasion).

The only issue with this is you would have to pay attention not only to appearances, but that floating name above their head.

I would also rather them only being able to ride their own mounts and the faction they choose, since there would be major QQ and an unfair advantage to mount achievements to them.


yup, so thats it :wink:

I like this idea, you've thought about it more that i have. I'd be an ogre, for the alliance of course.

How about, your neutral, but your a slave thorugh your starting point. Slowly you doe the quests, and escape. Prove yourself to a faction. And you could probably qitch from the ally's to the horde, any time... just by doing a quest or something i dunno.

Ye but as someone else said. You'd be a mercenary. So switching sides is inevitable. However, I don't like the idea, jus tthrowing in a sugeestion.

first of all that was me who said it

maybe alliance and horde would be nuetral at first
and to switch youd have to do an EXTREMELY long chain to prove your self

that would make it a bit less unbalanced

I'd say that Neutral races would actually be a pretty good idea, but it won't happen. We all know that Blizzard will have to spend 2 years on trying to create something original for the new Hero class. :(

I'd say that if Neutral races actually came to WoW, there should be some normal starting quests available, which ends in a long chain quest where you ally with either the Horde or the Alliance. That choice should be permanent though.

And lastly, even if they come, we need new and more sprites. There are no Furbolg or Tuskarr females, the Goblins are just reskinned male Dwarves... And I actually don't think that Murlocs and Naga would make good Neutral races lore-wise, since they are basically hostile to all (the only exception being the neutral Murloc camp in Borean Tundra).

They won't do this.

It's too complicated.

Well, making the new sprites, lands, etc. might be a little complicated, but the quests should be easy. I mean, they've already done it with Death Knights before...

Actually,goblins already have their own island...its somewhere southern from the Maelstrom and its called Kezan

And Nagas aint neutral dude..those bastards want to kill all the other stuff on azeroth..wait,dont they all wanna do this? O_o (murlocks are the nagas slaves)

And Ogres are simply too stupid to have their own cities and community :D

And yea...goin around with Alliance Tuskarr will be a knife in the back for the Horde Taurens... :lol:

I know, I was talking about creating it in-game.

Basically every single continent that holds life is already displayed on Blizzard's official maps, with the exception of Pandaria. :wink:

Why choose a faction? That would defeat the entire purpose of being "neutral", would it not?

I'd suggest having the ability to STAY neutral, and as for PvP....just kill everyone?
