    This doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

    And every druid quits the game as most non-pvp'ers unite to chant- "Who the hell are these changes even for?"

    Yeah, everytime the game updates a texture for an NPC race, there's this small, non-subtle community that believes its the path-paver to new models. Been happening ever since they cleaned up Kalecgos' face in TBC.
    Listen kiddos, trust Handsome Jack. You want every part of this insanity.

    Actually, you can play for free in a highly limited capacity, but subscribers don't have to upgrade to the next expansion to continue playing anyway.

    According to Blizzard they were working on them at some point and just to point it out, most of the current models are horrible and can't get any worse than they are.

    When you want to play as a common frog because their models are better than the characters you're playing as... you know there's a problem.

    New character models won't be a feature of the next expansion, having a new class / continent / race covers that. They will do what they said and release them staggered, it makes more financial sense that way.

    Hah! Well said. I'm just waiting to come back until the models do get updated.

    Revealed at the end of the Expansion V trailer, added in 6.0. No, they won't require Expansion V.

    Player models are among the (if not, the) most visible things in the game though. Updating them could be a major selling point, and a way to show the competition that WoW is capable of moving with the times too.

    One thing I forgot. If nothing is said by the end of Blizzcon, file this with the Dance Studio, Path of the Titans, and Proving Grounds.

    Pretty much this is the same way I think about it.

    Maybe not released by 6.0, but at least previewed -- if not, and this is personally, for me -- something I promised myself out of principle, I'll quit WoW -- until they update them.

    Thanks for the awesome sig, Lady Amuno.

    I agree with the people sayingit will be a selling point for next expansion. Just like with cata the whole 'redoing old azeroth' was and that was free, it was just a PART of the new expansion.

    It's a sad day, since the new models outshine anything but goblins/Pandaren (Worgen are a mess so they don't count). Hell a single piece of armor often has more polygons and animations than many of the older races.

    Brought a friend to WoW and while she likes the game she loathes the races because they are extremly ugly and look like from a game from the 90's (which for all purposes the classic races are).

    Male Worgen are fine, female are a disaster.

    I think it's safe to say that that won't be happening

    What's funny (and sad) is how few people got the tone/joke of that post.




    I'm curious as to the discussion re:Zandalari skins. In general the Zandalari have an entirely different skeletal structure than the Darkspears, at least, where the males are concerned. I'd be very skeptical of Blizzard deciding to suddenly change all trolls, but, it's not beyond them, I suppose.

    I wonder if a race revamp would touch up all races, or just "old" ones? I'd personally like to see female worgen get a revamp-their alpha skins were much better than what made it to live (snarling chihuahua).

    Really, with regard to player models, I just wish Blizzard would fix the issues with clipping/overlapping helms. T8 shaman helm, for example, ha a chain that hangs down from the chin-on Draenei and orcs it completely disappears into the chest, whereas on Tauren and trolls it hangs down and looks great. Stuff like that really irks me, mostly because it makes armor feel so two-dimensional. I wish they'd move beyond just helm and shoulders being the 3d aspects of armor.

    They are both fine.

    Whatever they do, I hope they make more cute troll lady faces. Or take the one cute face there is away. Either, or. Just change the status quo of every troll female looking identical with the same face model because women don't want to be ugly and never pick the other ones.
