    Do you like Gnomes? When will Gnomes get a functioning capital city?

    Are we likely to see more customisation options for other non-Allied Races, in much the same way as Blood Elves, Orcs and Night Elves?
    Is there currently more Void Elves than the ones we've seen in the unlock scenario? How're they created?
    When will we receive Blue Eyes for Blood Elves? You teased it in a previous Q&A.
    Any plans for a full heirloom armor set? at their current power you wouldn´t overpower the mobs but you would be able to go a little faster and you would look awesome at the same time.
    Short version: Can we move Retributions' healing over to their attacks?

    Would it be possible to reduce Retributions' healing spells, possibly remove all but Lay on Hands, and make them focus more on healing via dealing good damage so they can focus more on that (since as of now, no one in M+ is interested in picking a weaker DpS who can heal)?
    Can we expect San'layn as an allied race? Or is their story over as of Alliance war campaign.
    Any chance of seeing some currencies become accound bound? Like for example doubloons.
    The Elemental/Enhancement Shaman and Shadow Priest class changes that were introduced in the BFA pre-patch have been criticized by many players, even including the class dev team admitting they missed the mark with these reworks.

    Major changes to these classes were promised. However, so far the 8.1 PTR only introduced minor talent switches or small buffs that in no way alleviate the problems these specs are dealing with.

    Are more changes expected to these specs or is the design team content with the current iterations implemented on the 8.1 PTR?
    Do you know why people are so fond of WotLK? A big part was the lack of rng. You had goals you could work towards and when you finally got that piece of equip you worked so long for you wouldn't be disappointed because it didn't upgrade. So, why do we have this much rng in the game? Nobody likes it.
    Given the actions of Sylvanas & Tyrande, can we expect to see new Forsaken & Night Elf factions - making 4 in total, alongside Horde and Alliance - like in the RTS series? This really feels like a good time to lead back to that situation.
    Are there any plans to change the way in which we unlock Dark Iron Dwarves and Mag'har Orcs? It is currently extremely hard for an average Horde/Alliance player to get the opposite faction's race unlocked, as they are both gated behind the max-level War Campaign, as well as the incredibly long reputation grind for "The Honorbound"/"7th Legion". The idea that's (almost universally) proposed by the community, is to make both of them unlock at the same time (e.g. doing the War Campaign + rep grind on a Horde character would unlock both DI Dwarves and Mag'har Orcs, not just the latter).
    Do you feel like the levelling experience from 1-110 is in a good place right now, given how long it takes and how few rewards there are as you level up towards the end?

    (PS. I respectfully don't think it is, and would like a level squish and more rewards for levelling up.)
    Do you plan on making professions relevant again? and how? (enchants, gems, belt buckles...)
    I highly enjoy leveling atm, but would love to be geared in a full heirloom set. Any chance of that in the near future?
    With personal loot, it becomes more difficult to replace parts that would only drop for few players (ex: Only 5 specs in the game uses shields). Is this something you see as an issue?
    1, Are there any plans to address the fact that the current tier of raids in heroic are tuned so that its easier for a small raid group to pug 12 people than to do the fights on a flexible setting or are we just going to continue to see fights that are punitive towards smaller guilds and groups.

    2, are there plans to ease off on the restriction of players progress as a time gate, or are we just going to constantly be playing Azerite level leapfrog with our gear.

    3, Will tool tips ever become useful? Or are we going to continue seeing nebulous wording that tells us next to nothing and have to rely on third party sites to decode them.

    4, Will the EU forums ever get as much attention as the US ones, or will we continue to see legitimate feedback threads fade into obscurity while the US gets significantly more activity.

    5, Will wow ever try and create proper functional and customisable player housing, Just copy Wildstar or Eso if you need to, and no the Garrison system was not "housing".

    6, are there any plans to make fun content again, or are we just going to have time gated grinds and facebook minigames?
    Allied races, When Vrykul? Sylvanas pissed off Eyir, so Odyn tells the tideskorn that taking her down will prove they are worthy.

    That is your backstory, when Vrykul?
    Are there plans for further updates to existing Allied Races? There are some pretty jarring issues with some of them, particularly Nightborne.
