But I would pay ALL THE MONIES to be a Togruta in this game! I was actually really disappointed, and surprised, to see that they weren't a playable race when I first started this game.. I feel like they are one of the most visually stunning, both anatomically and aesthetically, species the series had. I figured BioWare would have jumped on the opportunity to make something like that; but guess not.

If they are ever going to make an update with new species.. for the love of all things holy!; please, please, PLEASE let it be these guys.
Cathar are going to be available in Rise of the Hutt Cartel if I'm not mistaken.
Togruta are awesome. Totally will switch to them if they will be introduced. Inspired by Ahsoka Tano from Clone Wars, I love this race. What do you think of Togruta classes? In the first post of the thread, it is stated that they are suggested to be both Jedi Knights and Consulars. Playing as a Sith through legacy system is interesting option.

I don't believe it's been officially stated whether Cathar will be included in the expansion or not. As of now, it has only been confirmed to be a Cartel Market unlock. Personally I think players would be more favourable towards the idea of a new playable species available with an expansion pack rather than as a seperate purchase since that has been the tradition with most MMO expansions.

The two I have been really wanting, but now know will never happen, are Ithorian, I would make a shadow, and a Trandoshan, which would be a Vanguard.

Edit, forgot an important, and has a slight chance of actually happening, the favored Togruta.

Never say never. There's a lot of pontential with each species and there are many different ways as to how they could implement them. Of course they're currently not on the top of the list but it's possible at some point in the future they could start working on them. Trandoshans especially are able to speak basic and whilst Ithorians aren't able to speak basic (although there have been some inconsistencies), they could still be able to use basic for their dialogue.

Abroad, Ithorians integrated well with the Galactic community. Their own language was incredibly beautiful, yet difficult to learn, as the Ithorians had twin mouths on opposite sides of their necks. Fortunately, they could speak Basic, albeit with a strange accent.

As you say never say never

I would say the only issue we have with Ithorians and Trandoshans would be clipping issues with gear. I would have originally said there might be an issue with story but a Cathar Imperial Bounty hunter or Sith Warrior is far more lore and story breaking than a Trandoshan Bounty hunter or Ithroian Sith Warrior.

It would probably spend the money to open the togruta race for all classes. That is how much I love them.
I really like the cat-like qualities of the Cathar, they're very elegant. and i would definitely make a character with the race. I'm just surprised that there was not a lot of race diversity, all the races they chose were pretty simple.

So many interesting unique looking species in the Star Wars universe yet we can't even play as a Yoda sized character. Customization options please. Love the post btw.

I cast my vote for the Togruta race hands down.
