Paranoid I can't say I remember any MMO having an expansion that added a month to an existing account. It's typically only with the 'base' product and a new account you get this.
And Paranoid.. the Draenei are the ONLY race on the Alliance side to have a Shaman.
As for racials, the same could be said about undead, night elfs and now Blood Elfs. BE Mages are gonna be interesting to watch in PVP with the racials.
