Ok... I'm Currently a ffxi player and im very intrigued about the WoW... Finally a MMORPG i can play with my brother !
anywho... Just asking about some stat comparisons... IE orc shaman vs Tauren shaman... are any of the classes/races gimped EG Galkan Blackmage or are they all pretty balanced out? and can you change jobs?
Well, welcome to the heavenish realm of the WoW boards. Please keep your hands to yourself and you will not be bitten by trolls.
As for races doing similar jobs, such as the orc shamen vs tauren shamen deal, the only thing that will make both characters different will be racial traits and how they arranged their talents. There is no gimping when choosing a race for a certain job.
As for changing jobs, you can but we really do not have much info on it. You see, at lv 60 (the cap, btw), characters can try to get their hero class such as demon hunter and blademaster. As for the job you begin with, you're stuck with it until hero class. Not like thats bad because you can arrange your talent points to make a class within a class such as a rogue with an assassin build or a warrior with a fury build. You can mix it up and spend points on all 3 specs but its up to you.
