Alliance Race

Although it has not been announced yet (although it should be in the next couple days... hopefully) a video was shown to reporters leading up to the E3 coverage.

 

The video supposedly shows the new alliance race. A descriptions of the video is reported HERE, but the reporter is an idiot because the description sounds absolutely nothing like the Draenei that he clames they are.

 

What some people (people that know a lot more lore than I) have concluded is that the race is actually the Eredar, which look exactly like the description given. And here's another article that sort of backs up that theory http://www.joystiq.com/2006/05/08/new-alli...rs-start-early/

 

How such an evil race ended up with the Alliance, though, is sort a mystery. Some one came up with this possible explanation:

 

Does anyone not see the connection here? Hyjal, wisps, Archimonde. Guys here's the truth, it's a simple theory.  

 

First let me start out by saying Hyjal is the new starting zone, and this has been obvious for months now.  

 

Second of all they are not true Eredar, they are wisps who are trapped in Eredar bodies. Well, actually Archimonde's body to be exact (which would explain the blue skin.) Now it's true that Archimonde did die in the explosion, however the wisps we're not killed. Instead they fused energy with Archimonde in the explosion and were permanetly trapped in bodies simliar to Archimonde's form. They just resemble the Eredar. In fact they are wisps, and Blizzard really wasn't lying when they said they were the new race. So no demons, and not true wisps, but a mix of both. Most likely with a whole new name. Should be very interesting.  

 

And come on, who didn't realize Hyjal would be the new starting area. It's exactly where Archimonde and the wisps fought.

 

Hopefully we'll know a lot more tomorrow.

and the Video (link was posted in wow general, so it'll probably get removed for bandwidth usage at some point). I don't expect it to work all day.

Wow that looks interesting. It kind of looks like the broken from the burning crusade art page.

 

I wonder what the racials will be.

just wait until you hear about the racials. All I'm going to say is that Alliance warriors are going to make their presence known in a big way.

 

I'll let you all discover the rest on your own. =)

Racials

Passive: +1% Hit Aura (Scales with Level)

Story / Lore

"As the thunderous steps of Archimonde's army approached the summit of Mount Hyjal, all hope seemed lost. The camps of Jaina Proudmoore and the Warchief Thrall were overrun, and the forces of Archdruid Malfurian Stormrage were fighting for their life.

 

Then, the moment feared by all those fighting for the fate of Azeroth arrived. The Night Elf army was overrun, and the great Eredar warlock, destroyer of countless worlds, arrogantly marched to the World Tree. With flames surging in his eyes, he grasped the trunk with one vile claw... and the entire summit was shattered in a burst of brilliant, white light.

 

When the radiance faded, nothing remained of Archimonde but a charred skeleton, resting in the branches of the fatally-damaged Nordrassil. Malfurion, Jaina, and Thrall emerged from hiding; it was all an elaborate trap designed by Malfurion to take advantage of the demon's arrogance. In his lust for the World Tree's power, he did not notice the gathering flock of wisps take their positions around him and detonate themselves in a torrent of nature's fury.

 

With their commander gone, the remainder of the Burning Legion's army was cast into disarray. Malfurion and his companions escaped from the summit of Mount Hyjal, and the remaining Night Elves silently reflected upon the sacrifices of their Wisp companions.

 

Yet, the spirits of the Wisps lived on. Floating invisibly throughout Mount Hyjal and nearby Felwood, they began to slowly intertwine with the demons that had taken up residence there. Almost imperceptively their presence began to twist the forms and minds of the local Satyrs and other foul, demonic creatures.

 

Now, a handful of these creatures have been transformed in mind and body; they have the thoughts of the Night Elf spirits coarsing through their veins, yet their bodies mutated to take the form of the last creature the Wisps had made contact with -- the Eredar warlock, Archimonde.

 

Ashamed of their foul appearance, these creatures took into hiding beneath the roots of the shattered World Tree, Nordrassil. Despite their attempts to hide themselves from the outside world, they found themselves under constant seige from the demons who came to view them as abominations.

 

Now, with their very existance threatened, these Eredar -- demon in form, Night Elf in mind -- have made an impassioned plea to join the Alliance."
