This. Wow righto. Now you're just getting aggressive. We're now at the level of "Go play WoW" now? Almost exactly the nasty attitude I was hoping to avoid. Still nobody has addressed the path issue. I'm willing to bet because there isn't an answer. It's the same issue only higher in magnitude, yet it's fine because it's a shiny new mechanic. You can homogenise races all you want, but in a few months you'll either be saying the same thing about scientists and soldiers, or you'll be in denial. I quite like this idea. But limiting it to pets is a little lame. Very much like the idea of a parellel path of progression through cosmetic racials though. Love that. What would be even better is it there was an element of customisation or choice to it. This would be a really good alternative to mechanical racials.
