    Which totems need their model polished?

    Which totems need their model polished? None? All? Some particular? If so, which then?

    All totems has special effects like fire, water, wind and earth.
    But some totem models has not all equally vibrant effects. Some are fairly static.

    Let me use the Dwarfs totem as an example of what I'm talking about.

    They are fairly static when you look pass the water effect and such.
    But if you look at the feathers; what if they actually moved slightly as if there was a breeze in the air.

    Small change and much improvement, I like to think.




    But if we look at the Goblins totem, then it becomes a quality of an entirely different level.
    Here is a totem with a drill animation, and it shakes too.

    I'm not saying Dwarfs totem should have a drill.
    Said, small adjustments like giving a totem feather with animation (moving with the breeze), improves it so much.

    Tauren, simpl because they weren't updated in Cataclysm.

    Tauren would be first on the list, yes.

    If we list lacking differing between totems of the same race as a reason for improvement, then basically every race except goblin and troll become legit for style upgrades.
    If we list a lack of animation of totems (drills, propellers from goblin totems) as a reason, then basically every race except goblins become legit for spell effect upgrades.

    Voted Draenei purely because they've had the same model since TBC and I play a Draenei
    They don't need a major over-haul but they do seem to be a bit bland compared to other race's totems.

    Tauren for sure. Hopefully with model updates totems will happen as well?
    Draenei totems should look like little crashed space ships

    Easy, Tauren and Draenei. Their Totems look good, but need their models updated.

    On the other hand, when ignoring matter of "being up to date"... I think they should rework Orc totems, I don't really like them. To be honest, it is the only thing that keeps me away from playing Orc (And Horde as I don't enjoy playing other Horde shaman races). I think it would be better if the axes were actually cut in the ground and with some glowing runes on the handles.

    I quickly draw a picture of what I mean:

    That would definitely be a lot cooler, Zrudo! I like that idea a lot.

    Whatever stops Draenei totems from looking like a glob a clay with Christmas lights on it, sure. As much as I hate the race and class combination (especially males), I still have to put up with them.

    What D: Draenei totems are by far the best looking, why would anyone want them changed D:

    Tauren imo. The concept is nice, but the model is Vanilla.

    I've never noticed any flaws in terms of polygons / pixels with the Draenei totems, I don't see how they could look much better than they currently do without changing the general design? :/
