    Undead seems like the most easily screwed up

    Why are you all thinking they'll screw up? They're not changing anything iconic about the races (undead will still have bones) I mean look at the garrosh model, the biggest difference aside from the hi-res texture is that he has individual fingers.

    The undead model is so horrendous on its own that it's damn near impossible to screw it up.

The whole deliberate neck tumor thing being one of them.
    I've been thinking a lot about that myself. Like you say, I have a very specific "style" in mind when I think about how my human characters should look, that doesn't really jive with Blizzard's current art style. I wouldn't be surprised if the human male faces all end up looking like Admiral Mustache from the MoP intro cinematic.

Going for the cute furry girl factor instead of like proper Minotaurs. Plus same face syndrome.

    Not saying I don't like the female Pandaren, they're very well designed, but they all look the same. I'd be sad to see Tauren meet that fate. Please prove me wrong, Blizz!

    So yeah, that's my biggest concern.
    This goes for Trolls and Orcs as well, although fem Orcs have like one older face luckily.

    And yeah, Pandaren fems were done well, but there is a lot of changes that NEED to be done to them!

    And don't even get me started on fem Worgen.... /shudder

    you can't change the fem pandaren. the reason they look all the same is because blizz put a lot of expressivity on their faces. read "blizz made it all 3D so they can make a load of expressions, and now all textures you put on the pandaren female's face must fit those 3D shapes otherwise it looks broken".
    Warlorcs of Draenorc made me quit. You can't have my stuff.

    It's been said before, but I agree. Gnomes. I love my gnome warrior.... but I can just see this happening.

    Prime example of the negativity in the WoW Community, folks. Nicely rolled into one post (the original one) if I might add.

    It AMAZES me how many people who play this game practically eat, drink and breathe negative thoughts. There's always SOMEONE injecting their toxic ways of thinking into almost every aspect of this game.

    I think however the models turn out is how they turn out. Blizzard deserves a ton more credit than you are giving them. This thread is so unhelpful it's mind boggling to me it's even still open.

    odd how the males have much more varied faces then.

    really, its no excuse beyond pure laziness. kinda like how female belfs & draenei have the same exact faces with different color skin.

    We don't need to make that distinction, its a body type. Which in most cases, Sylvanas is looked at as having a similar figure to a Night Elf.

    The only one I'm worried about is the female blood elf. I'm quite fond of them as they are, and I worry they'll give in to weird people complaining about them supposedly being too thin, and make them more beefy like the female human. For anything else I play, I figure it'll be an improvement.

    because the 3D part of the males isn't nearly as detailed as the female ones. they are much more generic.

    more detail on model = less freedom on textures

    only to an extent... there were tons of fan made textures that used the exact same model and had far more variety.

    it was pure laziness on blizz's part.

    you know, I'd hate to work for blizzard. they made a very well detailed, beautiful model from scratch, with dozens of cool animations in it's brand new skeleton, high res textures, a cool new type of underwear and a popular dance on youtube videos, and people still complain and call them lazy just because they don't get an option to make their fem panda look like an old hag. this makes me depressed, really.

    I'm scared to see how female trolls might work.

    They've said that they're not terribly fond with how they turned out, and with all the new troll models they've churned out over the years, they've all only been male, so they don't have much work in the bank for it

    The female troll in the council encounter in ToT turned out pretty well imo. I'm hoping they'll go w/something similar for the new troll models.

    Gnomes ofcourse could only get worse!

    If you are expecting the worst you can only be pleasantly surprised.

    When I read this I thought: 'What the hell?'
    They ARE too thin! They look emaciated! I don't get how people can find them sexy or attractive at all.
