World of Warcraft’s foxy Vulpera look more likely as a playable race

    
32

Along with the proposed “level squish,” the evidence for the addition of the fox-like Vulpera as a playable race in World of Warcraft is stacking up these days. Blizzard Watch reports that more datamining has unearthed information of the Vulpera becoming one of the next allied races join the game’s expanded roster.

“A Wowhead reader found a trace of Vulpera code in the game’s files that suggests the race will show up in a cutscene as a player character,” the site posted. “You can see the list includes all of the other playable races to slot into player’s spot in the cutscene, and now it clearly reads Vulpera.”

This is just the latest of many hints of the Vulpera’s inclusion. We do know that Blizzard is open to adding more allied races, and the Vulpera’s popularity in the current expansion would make for a stampede if this turns out to be true. Fans have long speculated that the anthropomorphic foxes were a lock for the next wave of allied races.

And another reason to play Classic instead of current game.

More options = bad? Okay whatever.

If it’s gotta be an anthropomorphic race maybe go with something other than another furry species like those fish guys or murlocs.

Make everything you can a playable race. I would love to make a Sethrak, but maybe their body shape (particularly their heads) would make it hard to design gear that works on them.

Let’s face it WoW jumped the shark with the Panda’s this is only like them jumping a haddock compared to that .

So, WOW jumped the shark before WOW was even a thing?

Pandaren were meant as a joke in the Warcraft III RTS game. They jumped the shark when they based a whole “serious” expansion around said joke race.

A fox race would be enough to get me to re-subscribe for at least long enough to play through a new starting area. Possibly longer, depending on how fox-like they actually turn out to be.

it’s just a skin. and there would be no new starting area.

Does it smell of desperation or of fox droppings? Maybe they’re the same.

Sounds to me like The Onion author is really bitter about how ‘their’ life was when WoW first came out. Yikes. Not representative of most by far. But if it wasn’t over the top hyperbole it just wouldn’t be The Onion.

The Onion is a satirical “news” site…

It’s meant to be that way.

How the heck are High Elves NOT an Alliance playable race yet? You got the derpy looking Night Elves, you also have the Void Elves aka black Blood Elves.

Void Elves are more purple than black

The High Elves became the Blood Elves, they hold a grudge against the Alliance because they were told to pound sand when they asked for help when the Scourge invaded their lands, they joined the Horde because they needed allies and Sylvanas was originally an important High Elf.

Not all High Elves became Blood Elves.

Alleria for instance, stayed a High Elf. So did Fiora Longears. There are several Alliance High Elf Outposts in Azeroth.

Only the Kael’thas Incursion and the citizenry of Silvermoon that lived the Scourge ( which was the majority of the High Elves that survived ) became Blood Elves. The elves already in Alliance lands never went through the withdraw, since they didn’t feed on magic.

The Blood Elves were cured at the end of BC so I guess technically they are High Elves again I guess; so basically the urban High Elves are Horde and the rural High Elves or the ones living abroad in other nations are Alliance/Neutral, I’d still argue then that most of them are Horde then since in the real world most of the people live in cities.

Too bad it wasn’t the Turtles, perfect opportunity to roll a Brew Master Monk.
