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.
