After much speculation, Blizzard will unveil the new Alliance race in its World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade video to be shown for the first time at E3, which begins on Wednesday.
The video, which runs about two minutes, shows off a huge race about the size of Taurens. They have bluish skin (although as with the other races, this could be customizable) and small mindflayer-like tentacles hanging from their chin. They also have a large tail (maybe scaled) and what look like hooves. Having heard nothing official from Blizzard, the race appears to be the Draenei as they appear in their otherworldly realm of Outland. The Draenei (or Lost Ones) that appear in the current game in the Blasted Lands and Swamp of Sorrows are apparently corrupted or fallen versions of the race.

It would be cool if the Draeni racial ability functioned as a permanent aura preventing all Night Elves from doing flips, chatting, and using emotes within 500meters of the player.

I wanted to make a Warlock character, but I'm holding off for Blood Elf.

They aren't Draeni.
It appears they are Eredar

Scratch that...
Appears they are Draenei after all

I don't care what they're called, all I know is that they're demon looking things with hooves and tails. I've seen the video already via 'other' means.

Definitely a 'cool' looking race, as Blizzard said they would. Don't think they're gonna fix their population imbalances very well thanks to this.

And the new Draenei (the Alliance race) dance is from...

Daler Mehndi.

Tunak Tunak Tun.

You thought that the Alliance was unbalanced before? Now everybody is gonna pick the Draenei just for the horrible 'dance' moves that the male has.

Don't believe me? Visit here. And if you've never heard of Daler Mehndi (shame on you biggrin ), visit here.

And for the male Blood Elves, you Napoleon Dynamite fans should reconize this 'dance'.

I can't make this shit up, no matter how scary it is.

OMG, that rocks so much.

BTW, I read (on IGN?) that the Eredar racial skills will be a passive heal-over-time (which will scale up as you level, about as powerful as "Renew"), an aura which increases nearby party member's chance to hit, and a +15 to jewelcrafting.
