FAQ: http://nw-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?18401-Neverwinter-Extended-FAQ&p=297621&viewfull=1#post297621

Discussion thread on official forum: http://nw-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?61791-Drow-elf-not-available-for-at-least-60-days-after-release-wizard-future-unsure

There has been a bit of an uproar over the updated FAQ to NWO in which the drow will be exclusive to Hero of the North Founder pack for at least 60 days post launch.  The control wizard is also not listed as one of the launch classes either, leading to forum speculation that it may not initially make launch now.

The good news is the half-orc is confirmed as a playable race for launch.

Cheers!

control wizard should in at launch and drow is in for everyone.. the founders pack is an exclusive back story you get not an exclusive race

 

The current options are Human, Elf, Half-Elf, Tiefling, Drow, Dwarf, and Half-Orc. For full descriptions and pictures, check out our Races page here.. hafling should be in as well by launch

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

And the bad news is that since this is Cryptic we are talking about, what you get is literally half an orc. If you want to get the other half you have to buy it in the cash shop.

If you don’t do stupid things while you’re young, you’ll have nothing to smile about when you’re old.

They're disabling drow for 60 days after launch to maintain the exclusivity of the $200 Founder's pack. Lower-tier Founders also don't have access to the Drow race.

 

I personally don't give a darn; I'll likely never play one. But since the developers numerous times stated it would be in at launch, in both live streams and in interviews, it's sort of a dumb move.

i have no interest in playing drow personally as their running animation on female toons looks horid but don't really understand this decision if it ends up being a final one come launch

60 days is only two months which is only 8 weeks. 60 days in should give an idea of what people think about the game.

Don't be terrorized! You're more likely to die of a car accident, drowning, fire, or murder! More people die every year from prescription drugs than terrorism LOL!

They are milking Drow fans for all they can get away with.. and since this game is tied to Salvatores Drizzt books, Drow lovers are probably thier primary audience.

In other words, they know thier fans want to play Drow's and they are taking advantage of that.

I think it's disgusting personally.. but I won't lose sleep over it.

There seems to be a discrepency in the reporting of this situation. On the Neverwinter forums, where the Extended FAQ are, it clearly states that only the Menzo-Renegade Drow will be exclusive to the Founder's pack, the regular Drow will be available to everyone at post-launch.

Source: http://nw-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?18401-Neverwinter-Extended-FAQ&p=297621&viewfull=1#post297621

Additional information from the linked post:

All the available races at launch will be free. We are planning to release the regular Drow for free post-launch (after at least 60 days to allow for Founder's Pack exclusivity). Note that only the regular Drow race will become available; the Menzoberranzen Renegade will always remain exclusive to Hero of the North Pack purchases.

 You said that the drow would be exclusive to the Founder's Pack, however, you failed to mention which drow would be exclusive to the Founder's Pack. You just made it sound as those the Drow in general would be made exclusive to the founder's pack which is an all-out lie. The Regular Drow will be available FOR FREE at the same time as the Menzo-Renegade Drow (which will always remain an exclusive race to the Founder's pack).

Regular Drow will be available free to all after 60 days.  This happened because of  some wording which has since been corrected in the hero package.

This is mostly shady lawyer manouvering and marketing, that is all.  What Hero founders get isn't a race but a background, the menzo renegade,  the regular drow race is being held for 60 days to :

 

A - encourage Hero founders sale and

B - avoid legal shenanigans as this way they can claim Heros founder got the drow race exclusively for 60 days.

Really? Ugh, I HATE Drizzt Do'MarySue with the anger of a thousand Daleks. Just absolutely cannot stand him. I kill him every time he appears in a D&D game (CRPG or PnP), regardless of my character's alignment. I will find a way for a freaking paladin to justify murdering him and his little kitty-cat companion, and burning their dismembered corpses afterward.

And no, I'm not a huge fan of Salvatore overall either. Bah!

This is what the Faq linked to says.  I highlighted the important part in red, which is what the OP is talking about.

 

What Races are available in Neverwinter?

The current options are Human, Elf, Half-Elf, Tiefling, Drow, Dwarf, Halfling, and Half-Orc. For full descriptions and pictures, check out our Races page here. Please note that Menzo-Renegade Drow will be exclusive toHero of the North Pack purchasers, while regular drow will become available for everyone after 60 days post-launch.


Will it cost ZEN to unlock additional Races and Classes?

All the available races at launch will be free. We are planning to release the regular Drow for free post-launch (after at least 60 days to allow for Founder's Pack exclusivity). Note that only the regular Drow race will become available; the Menzoberranzen Renegade will always remain exclusive to Hero of the North Pack purchases.

Details regarding additional classes and races should be announced soon!

Cheers!

i read OP but source i got says something else so i dunno things may or may not change we shall see... i'd expect control wizard to be in by launch.. but again nothing is set in stone till launch

This is what the Faq linked to says.  I highlighted the important part in red, which is what the OP is talking about.

 

What Races are available in Neverwinter?

The current options are Human, Elf, Half-Elf, Tiefling, Drow, Dwarf, Halfling, and Half-Orc. For full descriptions and pictures, check out our Races page here. Please note that Menzo-Renegade Drow will be exclusive toHero of the North Pack purchasers, while regular drow will become available for everyone after 60 days post-launch.


Will it cost ZEN to unlock additional Races and Classes?

All the available races at launch will be free. We are planning to release the regular Drow for free post-launch (after at least 60 days to allow for Founder's Pack exclusivity). Note that only the regular Drow race will become available; the Menzoberranzen Renegade will always remain exclusive to Hero of the North Pack purchases.

Details regarding additional classes and races should be announced soon!

Yea i know I read the faq... but faqs and stuff changes.. so won't know for sure till launch

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg
