    Character selection screen background question

    Not sure if this is the subforum, but I have a question. I noticed that in a friend's computer, the char selection screen for all races is the same per faction. SW for Alliance and Orgri for Horde. The question is; is there an option somewhere where you can change that?

    Nope. All background images were migrated soon after Mists dropped. For some time after Mists launched, only the human/orc had their home city background and the rest kept their old backgrounds. That changed soon.

    When I play on my mac, the backgrounds are all SW keep.

    Our characters are wearing the same pair of underwear, since like, Level 1. Damn that's unsanitary as hell.

    My DK still has the DK background, but my others are now their home cities.

    But I still have all the racial backgrounds for my characters, even the dk get their class one! Ans its even weirder because my friends copied my WoW folder to avoid downloading the game from scratch (crappy connection)

    I had this for a short while, 2 days ago.. All my toons were displayed in Org..
    Next time I started the game, background was back to normal, and still is..

    Only happened once, and no idea why..

    It flutters around on me.

    I went the entire MoP expansion up until the middle of November, and then I had the universal Stormwind background for one day. The next day, it was back to normal with all races having their own individual character background. This universal background returned for 12 hours about a week ago.

    Another PC in the same household has never seen this Stormwind background.

    My belf DK also looks small, at least smaller than my other chars. I think its because the DK bg is the same size for all races and the camara POV is fixed.
