And a lot of other games don't have as much of a high financial, or long-running product like Blizzard has created. The difference is Blizzard has more room, money, and capabilities to change things like this up.
Thing is Blizzard doesn't has as much money as people make them out to be. Believe me I wish they had infinite funds or billions so they can do loads more. I'm fine with reusing stuff every now and then.
Well for Trolls standing up tall it works /shrug It fits them and creating a new animation standing up tall for trolls takes a lot of time and resources.Yeah, of course they would not be as excellent to get them now. My argument was aimed at the people getting all upset by the utilizing the night elf animations. If it works, then why get upset over so much?
Why are people so desperate for Blizzard to work on mob models rather than player ones?
Frankly i'd be quite happy if the Thunder King had the model of a Quillboar if it meant we got our new ones quicker.
"Can your blood atone for genocide, orc? Your Horde killed countless innocents with its rampage across Stormwind and Lordaeron. Do you really think you can just sweep all that away and cast aside your guilt so easily? No, your kind will never change, and I will never stop fighting you." - Grand Admiral Proudmoore

Thank you Shyama for the awesome signature!
I don't think it will cost them too much to get another few more team members for rigging and animation.
It will cost them....time and considering how needy their playerbase is....it's not something they can just come up on a whiff bad economy and all and they want the best(A per the Blizz website).
The only reason they'd let off a bunch of people is if they employed extras for expansion development.
