Now that we know WoW Classic is arriving in August, I thought I'd have a quick look at what classes and races are going to be available. I have to admit I'd completely forgotten what the setup was at launch (I rolled a Night Elf Druid), but think I'll go Gnome this time around. 

Looking at the list above, I'm absolutely stunned at just how few options there were at launch. Not only that, but for Goblins and Blood Elfs to be missing just seems totally bizzare. This list also got me thinking about all the old class balance (2H Windfury Shaman, anyone?) or the fact Hunters had to use ammunition (what!). Heck, I'm even having nightmares as I type at the thought of looking for a healer. 

Now that you've seen the line-up, which class/race combination are you going to play at launch?
