You'll probably get that free, but, if you want to change to an Iron Dwarf, or a Ice Troll, that will cost ya..

what sub-races do you think they would add?

Iron Dwarf and/or Earthen
Frost Dwarf
Wildhammer Dwarf
Dark Iron Dwarf

Mechagnome

Ice Troll
Sandfury and/or Zandalari Troll
Forest Troll unless they're too similar to Jungle Trolls

Brown orc (Mag'har)
Black orc (Dragonmaw)

Elf/dwarf/gnome Forsaken

Taunka
Yaungol

I don't think they'll add Iron Dwarfs, and I'm unsure of Zandalari trolls at this point. Maybe Zandalari could work if subraces are added after a big defeat of the Zandalari empire.

The big problems with a lot of these (Ice Trolls, Taunka, Yaoungol especially, but more as well) is that the normal starting zone makes zero sense. I can't quite see them making new starting zones for each subrace.

The sub-races concept is bad, and 99% not even something Blizzard would do. Not only would it be a horrific burden to introduce, and more controversial than updating race models, it would pretty much break the feel of the game unless they put Cataclysm-level work into revamping starting areas.

I could see it with a path of the titans type reward.

Say for instance you level a Dwarf to max level and you unlock the sub race option for the dwarves allowing you to one time change your current character or start a dwarf with that sub-race from the start. One issue is that they rarely make female models of sub-races so that'd be extra work on top of new existing racial models.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

If they really did implement Path of the Titans like the posts says...(and I think it's a hoax)

Subraces could be unlocked, and they start in the capital at level 10, newly arrived immigrants. Then you'd only need one NPC per subrace that quickly explains your abilities and your backstory. Doesn't get around the problem of female models.

Variant orcs, dwarfs and trolls are mostly down to coloring anyway.

I just want to play a Murloc.

Is that too much to ask?

Murlocs are a primordial race, don't have any technology or anything, doubt that'd be ever viable

However in Pandaria we learned that Jinyus evolved from Murlocs so... maybe play a Jinyu? :P

I want to play a Hozen and the racial will have to be "Poo Fling - hurl your feces at the enemy, causing them to flee and lower their opinion of you significantly".

Still want Furbolg and either the original Dragonmen, or Sauroks since they use the same model and more work has been put into them already.

Sauroks arent really "civilized", they wouldn't fit anywhere in the playable races ;)

Orcs have a quite complex social system and good technology / knowledge of magic actually :P Just looks very primal

Almost certainly fake but whoever fabricated it obviously loves the game. I would love an expansion like that.
