    I hope those restrictions are based on races culture and philosophy, physic, etc, and not just because x number of races should not be able to be n number of classes, so eany meany miney mo...

    so Aurin's physic doesn't lean towards what n classes do, therefore Aurin's cant be n classes?
    Contradictory? (please elaborate?)

    Can't be elaborated much more, best to have lore reasons to explain than nothing at all. If a race was known for not using certain weapons like firearms or swords they probably shouldn't have a class which uses them.

    yes but doesnt that boil down to
    which just means that
    so that what were getting at is
    I think what Regicide is saying is that SeigaPlays was missing a point and contradicting herself in the same post. essentially proving herself wrong? Just clearing this up.

    Her post seems pretty clear, she doesn't want class and race restrictions to be brought down to "eany meany miney mo" and instead wants it to be lore based.

    ya fox pretty much summed that up there.
    although we should stay on topic, which is that races will have restricted class options.

    I believe we all agree that while a class shouldn't be restricted to a race because its not their main arch type (aurin warrior) they should only be restricted in classes that would not make sense for them to have/be due to morals/physic/lore.

    Yep you guys are right that idea wouldnt work, no one would want to join the Doominion (high five anyone ?). Thanks for catching the Starspun quote there Regiside. I think Carbine have brainwashed us into thinking of a solution for every playstyle and to keep everyone happy, we have now become their Superbrainstorming minion.

    Can Granok get the racial ability 'rock storm' instead? It only seems fitting!

    No problem, happens often enough that people get the opposit meaning of the intended, and it happens often enough for me to consider my language skills the barrier of communication, not a lack of peoples generel reading comprehension. Some of the guys here has gotten used to my writing, so they are apt at deciphering me :rolleyes:

    I shall point to WoW.

    Night Elves in particular, how, in the Lore almost destroyed themselves with arcane magic 10,000 years ago (give or take) and thus outlawed arcane magic throughout their entire civilization, until and expansion or so ago when Blizzard randomly gave Night Elves the ability to roll mages. Just because from the sounds of it. I can't find any lore justification...

    I think the lore justification was basically letting the Shen'dralar back into the fold, giving the kaldorei the benefit of shared skills and resources, and more numbers.

    Even with this, it feels a bit... lorelol-ish. :p But honestly, I understand the move. Azeroth is evolving and they need to add to the whole thing if they want to keep going.

    It's Metzen way to justify in-game changes ... it's a cheap way to do something. What made Night Elves so interesting was that they didn't use Arcane magic, but used Nature based spells instead.

    To get back to the actual subject, the lore could explain why some things are what they are in a game, but it shouldn't be used as a way to fix in-game problems. The lore should make the game, not the other way around. So build class/race combo's out of the lore, so it makes sense.

    I think we'll all agree on this. :)
